    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!

    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.

    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?
