    Great atmosphere, a bit loud. You'd expect the attire to be dressier, but it's casual. Free cornbread was fab. Grilled porkchop w/ white cheddar mashed potatoes and a glass of merlot, great meal!! ,

    The food is just as good during lunch and a lot cheaper. Lunch entrees are all under $20. Expect BIG portions and enjoy the cornbread that starts the table. Get the top sirloin - It's good.

    Fantastic center cut Filet and asparagus. The Calamari is also very good as well as the portobello mushroom. Bourbon Stout and Oatmeal Stout is also great

    Friendly service and fair prices. The cornbread and beers are awesome and I generally dislike both. Highly recommended.

    Try the WeizenBock, if you like wheat beers. One of the best I have had, finishes smooth with a light banana bread taste!!! Calamari is top notch, get some of the wasabi cream sauce on the side.

    We were in town from Dallas, TX for a show and happened to be there during Restaurant Week so we got to sample the menu. Was a nice surprise to find this place after walking all day seeing the sights.

    Great atmosphere, a la 1930-40s. Had crab cakes, prime rib, sirloin, cheesecake, and of course corn bread. All of it was A+.

    The chop salad is huge and amazingly delicious...the pumpkin seeds and dried blueberries give it the perfect sweet, crunchy, mix. Ask to switch out turkey for chicken! Read more

    The cornbread is a great alternative to regular dinner rolls and I love that they have 3 sizes of filet Mignon

    The complimentary cornbread is worth a stop in. Even better are the large lunch portions for a good price and great taste.

    Chop Chop salad is out of this world. Trade the turkey for chicken and you've got enough food for 2 meals. Best genuine service I've had in DC.

    Both bars have full menu service. The pool bar is usually open Tues - Sat, 5pm to close. So if it's packed, try going upstairs!

    The cornbread is both dangerous and free! Portions are large, Salmon and pork chop are amazing! Brown Ale was good. Only thing - attire is laxed, which is unfortunate.

    The Spinach dip is a delicious appetizer (I eat it from the spoon), and try the seasonal cherry beer in the upstairs bar. It's awesome.

    Don't get the beer sampler, the Bartenders will hate you, and for good reason, just ask to try a beer or two.

    The flan is not your typical flan. If you want flan, don't order it. Its more of a lemon custard topped with blueberries.
