The people who work here are ass hats and should be fired. Specially the security guys at door. Dicks.
This is one of my fav places in DC. The sandwich shop makes excellent cheese steaks, great food court, shopping, then take the elevator up to the clock tower for a beautiful view of the historic sites

Sign on door for winter hours (December) says 10am on Sunday-Security guards told me to come back at noon.
The shopping and dining is run down. They're closing and renovating soon. Only thing worth doing now is taking the elevator to the top!
Bird of peace
Disappointing dining/shopping options. Go somewhere else for lunch!
Not many food options. Don't waste time going through security unless you want to go up in the tower.
Indian delight is all vegan restaurant on the first floor
If you have a choice, go elsewhere to use the bathroom. Nasty
Good variety of food. Bathrooms were nasty.
Best view of the city and there's never any wait.

The Tower Clock tour (free) offers the better views of DC than the Washington Monument but with less lines and wait times. Check it out
"Dining" is a bit of a stretch, banner out front. Just a mall in some interesting architecture.
Come during the winter its usually less people to fight for seats with
The metal detector and security is annoying and unnecessary. The food court (except for Ben and Jerry's) is lackluster.
Built in 1891-99, using the design of architect Willoughby J Edbrooke.
Rent bikes or take a tour with Bike and Roll (in the back of the building)!
Enjoy ice cream cones as you browse souvenir stalls! Don't forget to ride the glass elevator to the top of the clock tower for views of the surrounding area. -- Green Guide Editor
The pavillion food court feels like time forgot it and it is 100 degrees. Tower is great though
Check out the tower for a free 360 degree view of DC. FYI - they close the tower during thunderstorms!
dont go to chocolate world!
Only structure taller than capital building. Its actually a national park! Take the free elevator up to the top and brethe in some history. Great place to eat a sack lunch on a lunch break. Must see.
City Electronic should be called City Electronic Rip-Off. Cheap quality merchandise; often breaks w/in the first hour after leaving the store. If you want to throw your money away, just give it to me.
The Indian food so delicious.
The Bagel Place is great. The cashier is super friendly!
Hosoi Sushi is my fav Japanese deli.
TeamTRI Tip: one of the top views of DC from the tower. Take your camera and enjoy!
