    The Oyster Stew was quite delicious, and my mother really enjoyed her jumbo lump crab cake. Trout was just ok. Of course, the atmosphere is the real pull of this place:) Been around since 1856.

    A bit lacking on the holiday spirit. They were running 45 minutes behind and the host said it was our fault for arriving 5 minutes late. That will win the hearts and minds of your customers....#fail

    Don't be put off by a long wait for a table. They'll give you a device to tell you when your table is ready and just head to one of their 3 bars and get the pre-dinner drinks started.

    It can get very busy - have an idea of what you like or want. If you are new to oysters, make a reservation.

    After a long day at museums, take a seat at the bar for happy hour: no wait, no fuss, more discounted oysters, clams on the half shell, and chilled crab claws than you know what to do with. Read more

    Hands down, my favorite place in town. Love their food and the oyster happy hours. Book in advance for the evening! Big parties are welcome there, but it's not a perfect choice for those, we tried.

    This place is awesome and very antique .. Try the mini crab sliders, house made soup (both as appetizers) and the mussels as an entry

    The crab cakes are excellent. Also enjoyed the clam chowder. However the ambience is it strongest point! Come on, less than 2 blocks from the White House!

    It gets busy, so expect a wait. Worth it for a boozy Saturday lunch though. Don't settle for less than a booth.
