Everything was great. The sandwiches and appetizers were made were fresh bread which was so fresh and delicious. The chicken and waffles were yummy as usual. The brick oven pretzels with the sauces were all on point. Bakers pizza and Sunday salad was a good. The BLT and steak and enchiladas were fresh and filling.

We had a wonderful time at this restaurant. My very picky 85yr old father loved the cornbread and the pot roast. Best food in DC so far.

This restaurant is at the Waldorf. It is in a very beautiful setting. The space alone is worth going to see. The food was very tasty and amazing. Everything we had tasted really good! Will be back to try the tasting menu. Definitely give this place a try! They also gave us complimentary wine cos my husband and I were celebrating getting married 🧡. Thank you!

One of DC/Maryland local icons. Place for seafood, regional feel, away from the touristy area of DC. Local feel but also attractive for out of town special occasions visitors.
