    Recommend! Very tasty food. I had the BBQ Blue Cheese Burger and Shaved Brussel Sprouts with Bacon. Great location where you can see the White House from the sidewalk in front of the restaurant.

    Heard a Gregorian choir sing when I bit into their slider. Ended up eating 4 of them @ a networking event. They kept running out, lol. Some kinda special farm raised Montana beef. Truly amazing.

    Ask for Gigi! She's the best server in DC I've come across. Attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. She's can give you the low down on gluten free items, too!

    BBQ Blue Burger is delicious. So are the Brussel sprouts with bacon. Affordable and consistent. Nice ambiance. Delivery available.

    The Shrimp and Grits are great. The fries are perfect and the portions are big. The mini burgers are just enough and include fries.

    Had the veal. Totally delish. But the bread pudding with caramel sauce and cinnamon ice cream was out of this freaking world

    The chicken paillard is a must. Ask for Emily or Claire when you arrive and they will treat you like a VIP.

    The bar area is nice and relaxed and bartenders are friendly. The urinals in the men's room give you the feel of peeing in the Roaring 20s

    The appeal of P.J.’s has been its democracy -- an average Joe’s ability to knock back drinks with the rich and famous. We’ll see how that plays in D.C., the land of the Secret Service. Read more

    They are Irish, which means they know how to serve up some Shepherd's Pie ... and whiskey. No mojitos here, folks.
