    Fabulous food combined with old fashioned service. Warm and welcoming. You'll want to be a regular but they'll treat you like one even if it's your first visit.

    Unreal crab cakes. I think Drake wrote the song "best I've ever had" about them

    Classic DC spot, worth the wait or snag a spot at the bar. Crab artichoke dip is a must. Great oyster spread. Dig the steak salad, too. Great service.

    Fascinating place. Warm atmosphere. Talk to your waiter/waitress about customizing your food. Ask for suggestions - they know their food. Excellent place for brunch.

    The wings are really good. They aren't necessarily buffalo or hot wings but they have a lot of flavor and may make you sweat and will make your tongue sensitive but if you like wings you'll like these

    Hands down best restaurant in DC. Sit at the bar and make friends with other patrons and the bartenders.

  • Yera H.

    The clam chowder is creamy, comforting and bacon-y.

    Yera Ha · July 20
  • Jim A.

    Try the Assorted Raw Oysters - Atlantic oysters and an overflowing Boyd & Blair vodka martini. Perfect antidote to humidity heat stroke. (via @Foodspotting)

    Great cocktails. Get the cannelloni and crab cakes mains, start with the spring salad!

    Harish Hoon · June 24
  • Shanda M.

    Dined @ The Old Ebbitt Grill and was highly disappointed. A lot of hype, nice atmosphere but not worth the price tag. Historic building does not mean a 5 star meal.

    Shanda McGowen · June 18
  • Brandon D.

    raw bar is awesome 1/2 off for happy hour and late nighy

    Brandon Duggins · June 15
  • Laura G A.

    Such a fun place to take out of town guests. The food is good, the atmosphere is fun and the location is perfect to go exploring after.

  • The Blogtrotter Girl

    Amazing place! Try the oysters plate and the linguine with shrimps.

  • Eric L.

    Deborah is the best! She's really funny, honest, and great to chat with. Don't decide what you're eating based on the menu you find online. The menu in store has way better suggestions.

    If you're having trouble getting dinner reservations and your schedule allows, try for lunch. We were seated within five minutes on the day of the Easter Egg Roll. Delicious drinks & food.
