We were in DC at election timed and stopped in for a drink and a light snack. YUK! I didn't think their beer(s) were anything more than run of the mill. The appetizers we ordered were awful - obviously pre-made and not warmed clear through. Needless to say, we didn't stay long and won't be going back.

We had a lot of fun here. The server was hysterical and very friendly. Our steaks were incredible. My boyfriend tried the beer sampler and it was fun sampling 12 different beers. Beautiful decor and relaxing atmosphere.

We had an evening meal here on a recent visit to Washington DC, before going to the nearby Shakespeare Theatre to see a play. Excellent good value menu and attentive friendly service.

We had a. Ok sampler platter. We stopped in around 3:00. My daughter, wife and I had been out walking. The $10 platter was a good buy. Beer was ok. The senator was the best with the IPA a close second. Service was spotty and can't speak for the food as we only drank.

I had the Porterhouse and my wife had the Tuna. Hers was better then mine. Filet part of the steak was just average. Not close to an upper steakhouse quality. Two good points- the service was very good and the beer quality and selection I thought were very good. Think if I had to make a choice again I would... More

Lots of steakhouses seem the same to me but this was a great time. The menu was fairly typical but did have some different dishes. Crowd-pleasers at my table included the burger, filet, pork chop and tuna app. They have a good beer selection and I enjoyed their IPA. Service was fantastic almost the entire meal but then the service... More

We had a little time for lunch. Our waiter Curtis served us well. Place is quite old fashioned and that is what I liked it to be. Beer is not my type but food was delicious.

I attended a cocktail party in party room on the second floor. I didn't have a chance to eat in the restaurant area but would like give it... More

This is a good steakhouse, and seems convenient to some of the museums along with the verizon center. I did not appreciate overhearing the servers complaining about the hostel not seating enough people in his section (of which we were in). Therefore could not rate it higher

We were a party of 6 dining at District Chophouse for the first time. We went on a very busy night before attending a concert at the Verizon Center which is almost next door. We were seated immediately, and were able to place our drink order right away. The drinks arrived quickly and were always refilled promptly. (Really enjoyed the... More
