We went after a Visit to African American Museum. It was convenient. Waitress was attentive. Good variety in menu. We are not drinkers so don't know about that.

Typical bar scene, nice and clean. Has seating inside and out. Wife and I had the meatloaf which was very good but we wish it was a bit bigger portion. Daughter had NY strip and said it was a bit bland, could have used more...More

6 of us went in for lunch while visiting D.C. We each ordered a variety of items. I ordered the bleu cheese burger with a side salad. So good! The staff is super friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're visiting the area.
