    BBQ Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese and Crab Cakes were so good. Also, had a solid beer selection. But if you can, come back for the breakfast.

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

    Make a reservation in advance if you're coming on a weekend for dinner. This is a busy place, but is really worth the planning. I loved their crab cakes, and everyone else in my party love this place.

    Don't want a fancy meal, but want to try a DC classic? Grab a drink in the Duck Bar - to the left after you enter the main door!
