    Nosh on favorites like fish and chips, bangers and mash, and the "Brixton Burger" with bacon and fried egg on its first floor. Down a pint of Fuller or St. James at the second floor's Lodge Bar. Read more

    People have ripped this place apart on 4sq...However, we enjoyed the muscles, bartenders and waiters were prompt and rooftop is beautiful. Once it gets worn in a bit it will be a great Ust local spot.

    Sit@ the downstairs bar & make sure Chuck is your bartender. One of those barkeeps you can tell a liquor preference, mood, and/or food selection to & he'll pair it w/the perfect beer or mixed drink.

    Terrific food, the fish & chips is top notch and the sauce is fantastic. Great brit attitude with awesome music all the time. Beautiful roof deck, too. Not sure why so many bad reviews; it's cool!

    The Bitches Say: A-. A few dishes were not perfect, but The Brixton has gotten its brunch strategy down pat. The Bitches awarded The Brixton with the Most Improved and Best Indian awards for 2013!

    This place gets some pretty bad reviews but I absolutely adore it.! Amazing food (I think I've probably tried everything on this menu thus far) not to mention great beer and atmosphere!

    Brunch here is excellent and it's a really nice space overall. Nice rooftop deck also. Unfortunately accompanied by overpriced drinks, inattentive bartenders, and a sometimes yuppie crowd.

    Bartender upstairs roof top is a good dude. Will work with your palate if you're going cocktail and keeps it real if you want to go off the menu.

    Every Sunday evening this place hosts the coolest live Jazz jam session I've ever been to on the 2nd floor. Definitely worth going to.

    The Brixton is home to the DC Jazz Jam. A no-cover jazz jam session every Sunday evening from 6:30 pm - 9:30 PM.

    Brunch is an amazing deal $35 for bottomless brunch plates and cocktails! An amazing deal and the service was impeccable.

    Fantastic waitstaff. But I'm used to more than one scotch egg and some lettuce in my tomato salad. Otherwise a prime night.

    Eric just made me the best damn Manhattan I've ever had. Seek him out if you want a drink made right.

    Here's hoping this place gets better. The Pimm's Cup is bad, and the shandies and service vary by the minute. But the atmosphere is great.

    As someone actually from England, I can assure you, don't believe the naysayers. Their Pimm's is actually quite good.
  • Maegan R.
    Maegan RamirezMay 28, 2013
    Great atmosphere and music, but the service could use some serious improvement. If your tab isn't sizable, expect to be ignored. You aren't worth their time. Primm's Cup is still worth a try, though.

    The bruschetta, spring rolls, and the burger are good. The atmosphere is good, too: not too noisy.

    The lamb shank is flavorless and the scotch egg is $9 for a single scotch egg. The food here lacks enthusiasm or flavor for dollar value.

    After reading some lukewarm to bad reviews of this place I was expecting the worst. Instead I got an excellent Pimm's Cup, a Monty Python ale and a killer Brixton burger. The rooftop also gets an A+.

    Hit the roof deck. Even when it's cold out the heat lamps and enough whiskey will keep you warm.
