Oldest dining saloon in DC. Across from White House. American Fare. Largest selection of oysters in DC. Open daily-breakfast, lunch, dinner, late-night.
Oldest bar in DC.
Barbecue oysters. Very crowded at night- make a reservation
Great cocktails. Get the cannelloni and crab cakes mains, start with the spring salad!
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.
raw bar is awesome 1/2 off for happy hour and late nighy
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.
Amazing place! Try the oysters plate and the linguine with shrimps.
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.
Go for the happy hour prior to 6pm and get the orca platter for 2 (lobster, 4 kinds of oysters, clams and crab) half price. Great atmosphere
Nothing is good here.mussel is not fresh.crabcake so so.dont come
Homemade chowder and half price oysters and crab claws before 6pm! Closeby the White House, frequented by locals too.
After 3pm get the Orca Platter ! 1/2 off ! Its epic!
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.
Very good food --a great place to bring people from out of town given the history and proximity to sights
Great thanksgiving dinner
Incredible oysters and atmosphere.
1/2 off oysters after 11pm!
The quintessential DC restaurant. They have great food and a very historic beautiful restaurant.
Tal, the bartender is the most amazing thing in this place. The food is also amazing.
a DC classic but food was nothing special. the crab cake benedict is your best bet.
The eggs benedict are great!
The quinoa cakes are like vegetarian crab cakes. And they are delicious.
The seafood, the bartenders, and the servers are outstanding!
Try the Catfish Tacos - Super smoky flavor, freshly made tortillas and delightful toppings! Fantastic! (via @Foodspotting)
Oldest pub in DC Since 1856
Nothing good. Restaurant is way to expensive and the food isn't that good. Staff tries to screw you and take advantage of poor knowledge of the restaurant.
Excelente opción, no puedes venir a DC y no visitarlo
Hungry? The Trout Parmesan is huge…but delicious!
Excellent food. Great service. Busy place so expect a bit of a wait.
Don't miss the oysters…solid selection, and served with all the right accoutrements!
Food is always amazing. Have brunch and enjoy a piece of history. Someone very important once sat where you are sitting. Lucky you. Old Ebbitt Grill is Washington DC.
Oysters and ambiance
Tasted a very beer, this one from Boston - take a seat on the bar and see who is sitting next to you
One of my personal favorites for dinner in DC. Everything here that I've tried is good. Never a bad meal.
Get the creme brûlée! It's divine- much better than the chocolate cake
Atmosphere and bar food
Lunch portions were massive!! Had the oyster shooter, which was definitely different but tasty!
Great pasta and crab cakes
Thank god the kitchen is open late...some of us need serious food past 11pm!
I was skeptical, but it's an institution for a reason.
Great service and seafood. Great for special occasions or business meetings.
Sat us at a table right beside the kitchen door even though there was a good amount of seating available. Oysters were good. They forgot a spoon for the sauce though. Attention to detail is lacking.
A good place for breakfast. You can go before work or after hitting the bars. It's open late.
Get the crab claws. Lots of them.
Oysters are great and they run a pretty good brunch.
Burger is good. Uninspired service. Mass food hall.
