Oldest dining saloon in DC. Across from White House. American Fare. Largest selection of oysters in DC. Open daily-breakfast, lunch, dinner, late-night.

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
The vegetarian options are great! It's busy and a bit loud, but the staff are still super attentive
Dine with the presidents, this place has been around since Andrew Jackson. Fantastic happy hour!
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.
The food was so delicious and great service!
Good beer selection great location
The Jalapeno burger was excellent. Just pick out some of the jalapenos coz they put too many.
Surprisingly not that expensive despite its looks. This place of feels so American.
Ambience and drinks
The bar is a monument, good barfood!
Crab cakes and raw oysters galore!
Bartender Nicole was great! She takes care of you and can tell some amazing jokes!
Grits and shrimp!
New England Crab chowder soup and single crab cake...both veryyyy delicious
Great food. Oysters for breakfast. Fried chicken.
I can not believe the happy hour seafood platters; awesome feast. This place has spoiled me to restrain from Oysters unless in DC
Oldest bar and restaurant in DC. Busy and loud. Enjoying the oysters and local pour.
Our table had a wide range of entrees. Wonderful! Staff is fabulous! Crab cake--excellent! There's a reason this place has been around forever!
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
One of my new favorite drinks #WildGinger a must try. Just seems like the type of drink your have in a saloon.
Eggs Chesapeake very good
Hands down best restaurant in DC. Sit at the bar and make friends with other patrons and the bartenders.
The clam chowder is creamy, comforting and bacon-y.
Try the Assorted Raw Oysters - Atlantic oysters and an overflowing Boyd & Blair vodka martini. Perfect antidote to humidity heat stroke. (via @Foodspotting)
Great seafood. The crab cakes were excellent. Loved the clam chowder.
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.
