    I never leave comments, but Walter the bartender is just very awesome. He remembers you every time you come by and what you like to drink, he makes the Heights super neighborhoodly. Two thumbs up!

    Unfortunately, I've never had a great dining experience here, but Happy Hour cocktails are great AND they have an adorable doggy menu of treats! My pup liked all three items. PLENTY of outdoor seating

    "Best French toast" on the menu is not a lie. Caramel sauce and pecans, not to the thick cut bacon. If you're not getting this for brunch, what's wrong with you?! Get there before it sells out!

    Wonderful brunch! We were planning to go somewhere else but it was packed. Really happy that we went here. The food was delicious and filling. Love any cocktail that involves blood orange!

    A Columbia Heights staple. They do everything - dinner, brunch, cocktails, beer - well. They have an extensive Bloody Mary program for brunch that's worth exploring a few times!

    Great food no more like the face book for free coffee offer though this was a limited time promotion. Great management gave us the offer since we aw it. Will definitely be back.

    Several times a month I get physical cravings for the buffalo shrimp appetizer. A little pricy but the if you catch it in happy hour it's a great deal and very filling.

  • Mimi N.
    Great happy hour deals (only at the bar) and during the cold months they have a warm butter rum drink that is delicious!

    Terrific brunch here. Have tried at least a half-dozen items and have yet to walk away unsatisfied. Also, if you like Bloody Marys, they have an extensive, creative array.

    Dank Bloody Marys. Best part in the city, as far as I'm concerned. Excellent brunch--check out bbq pulled pork corn cakes and ranchos huervos. U r welcome;)

  • Angie H.
    Good beer. But, crappy food. Ordered chicken Caesar salad, got 1 oz of lettuce, three croutons and some chicken on the SIDE. How does that even approximate an ok Caesar salad?

  • Doron K.
    Fantastic restaurant and atmosphere. Surprisingly decent prices. Started my meal with a lovely matzah ball soup. Service was superb, easy location yummy

    Lamb burger is awesome. Just about everything we've had on the menu is good. Also love the caramel bacon French toast.
    Anne Logsdon · March 9, 2013
  • Kris P.
    I feel bad for people that don't order the buffalo shrimp. And for the love of god, order bread and soak up the extra sauce!
    Kris Pritchard · February 15, 2012
  • Ramon R.
    The Turkey Hash and the "Best" French toast are must haves. Don't forget to top it off with a Bloody Mary. Sweet Sassy!
    Ramon Richardson · June 6, 2010
  • Heather M.
    Solid brunch. They make their Sriracha Bloody Marys with horseradish vodka, which is pretty much requisite in my book.
    Heather M. · April 14, 2013
  • Tom J.
    Dan the bartender makes the best Bloody Mary in town. Skip the design your own bloody mary option. Get it his way!

    I love the food here but each time I go the service and staff are more and more disappointing...hope it doesn't keep up!

    Good food....service....meh! Saw our waiter once to order food and from then on out it was a random collection of people. Despite checking on all the people around us.
    Savannah C. · June 21, 2014
  • Tom W.
    Ask for Owen as your server. He's easy on the eyes and keeps the beer coming. Maybe there's a correlation there....

    Walter suggest the baked eggs... Delicious. Also the "Big Walt" was refreshing. #yummy bloody Mary's

    Ginger calamari is fantastic! The small is more than enough for two people to share as an appetizer.

    Huevos Motuleños and Pork cakes is the way to go for brunch.Strawberry/Mint mimosa ;) Of course

    Pulled pork corn cakes is hands down my fave comfort food find this year. The Bloody Mary is great: hint of ginger a surprising complement.

    New Tofu Hash is delish and should be a regular on the menu. Also, great coffee.
