    Great for late-night bites, half-priced oysters and a dining room that screams history. – Adam Richman, Man v. Food Read more

    It’s Washington to a T! Clubby, circa-1900 atmosphere. Around the corner from the White House. A well-supplied bar. Bounteous seafood. Cheerful service. Kind of touristy but still fun.

    It's popular with locals & tourists alike, but visitors may not know about the great happy hour @ Old Ebbitt. Go there b4 6 or after 11pm to enjoy half price oysters, steps away from the White House.

    Check out their late-night happy hour. Mon-Thurs, 11pm-1am. Order the "Orca Platter". Amazing.

    The back bar is the best, especially if you have an AT&T phone because there's no signal back there. Peace and quiet.

    Oh, let me guess: it's a Tuesday night and you're here because you're interning for a first-year congressman from Utah? You're not special, little snowflake. Go play in 15th Ave traffic.

    This isn't just another DC restaurant - its an establishment! For several years it has been frequented by locals, politicians, K street titans, & tourists alike. Best bet - Petit filet & oysters!

    Must try the Good Burger with blue cheese, jalapeño onion marmalade, shredded lettuce with A-1 aioli and of course bacon on the side.

    The back bar has the best bartenders in the place. It's also the best place in town for a DC power breakfast. Excellent people watching in the am.

    Laura H. · January 10, 2010
  • Kevin D.

    Go to Old Ebbitt Grill, grab a seat at the bar, and order up their raw oysters and a cold Stella to complement the oysters. It's all Good!

    Now owned by Clydes with mostly the same menu. No cell service, whatsoever in this establishment. Yes, that includes your carrier. Great oysters and a fantastic happy hour. Kitchen open until 1am.

    Brunch: The Breakfast Club - french toast, stuffed with ham/cheese, wrapped in bacon, baked crisp with vermont Maple Syrup... OMG!!!! Skip the fruit and order a side of cheddar grits.

    Great spot to take DC newbies. Go for the homemade New England clam chowdah and, when available, the blackened swordfish sandwich.

  • The Telegraph

    For dinner, call ahead for reservations at Old Ebbitt Grill (001 202 347 4800). It's one of the city’s landmark restaurants and a favourite of former presidents including Theodore Roosevelt.

    Too often, this place is over-looked for being a tourist trap, but their brunch is excellent and perfectly located for an afternoon downtown. I definitely recommend the eggs benedict Read more

    Just steps away from The Whitehouse, Old Ebbitt Grill is a favorite of many past Presidents and still carries on the tradition of great food and service today!

    Classic, vintage DC. Simple.

    Oysters, oysters, oysters. Great place to take first time in-town guess, but if you live here you probably already knew that.

    Phil B. · April 8, 2011
  • Christina W.

    Go for the Orca Platter. Half off between 3-6pm and after 11pm except Fri & Sat.

    Have you found the 'secret bathroom'?

    Sean D. · March 11, 2011
  • Les K.

    Undoubtedly the best oysters on the East coast and definitely try the "bloody Maryland" rimmed thick with old bay seasoning. You won't have better... Trust me.

    Les K. · October 2, 2010
  • Michael M.

    nice place

    Michael M. · August 18, 2010
  • Yogi C.

    A Clydes chain, same food with the exception of the oysters. Half-price happy hour on weekdays from 3-6 p.m. then AGAIN late night after 11 PM. Who doesn't need an oyster shooter to end their night?
