One of my dads friends ran this place back in the 80s and when we walked past it, I recognized the name and we went in. It was pretty affordable for DC and the service was good. I had crab cakes, and they were properly done. My dads buddy would have been proud

Most of food was ok. Expect higher prices for dc area. Lollipop lamb chops were great. Jambalaya see.ex sparce on both andouille and shrimp and have on chicken. Chicken and sausage well over cooked. Seasonings good but dish was dry...
Creme brule a bit overcooked. Cheesecake was ok, but served with cool whip (plain laziness in my book). Won't return.

There were four of us and we ordered several things and shared. Atmosphere is casual.
For desert, order the waffle with strawberries and whip cream....delicious.

While visiting from NYC we had the pleasure of dining at Rumors twice.
The waiter who we were lucky to get was very polite and handsome! He recommended the crab cakes special and it was amazing! The crab tasted very fresh. They even made green salads for us that weren't on the menu.
The second time we ate there was during the day and we chose the outside patio. My partner had the Crisp Grouper sandwich and enjoyed it. I went for the crab cakes again!

We will definitely eat here again while visiting DC.

Stumbled across Rumors tonight after a very long walk around Washington. Each had a couple of drinks and ate clam spaghetti and jambalaya. Really attentive service, never waited for another drink. Food was excellent, extremely tasty. Check it out!
