This is a very nice restaurant. The crab cakes and salad were delicious. They offer a very extensive wine list. This was perfect for our anniversary.

Visited Friday night at 9pm, place less than half full. No hostess for 2-3 minutes. Finally: "Have a reservation?" Give me a break. Got seated and the long wait began. Too many tables clustered for one waitress. Margarita had half-salted rim. Second one, no salt. Long wait for requested bread refill and parm cheese. On the plus side food was... More

We had a co-worker's retirement luncheon at this location. Although the lunch menu was set (we had choices of chicken, steak & salmon) the choices were very tasty. And the wait staff was very attentive. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere about it. A nice place to hold this type of event or just come for lunch. We really enjoyed... More

One of our favorite chains until new ownership took over and now there are fewer locations in the DC area. Had Christmas dinner here- the food is still very good, especially the fresh fish. The service was somewhat slow, which can be excused, but the waitress had a cold and was seen coughing without covering her mouth or washing her... More

We went here for lunch on Christmas Day, as it was one of the few places open. The service was great. The restaurant has a great atmosphere. We really enjoyed the food too.

Awesome food and great service. We always love the warm and cosy athmosphere of this chain of restaurants. And usually is quality guarantee. We were here around Halloween time so they had a special seasonal menu: so tasty! Definitely go for fish and seafood! Desserts are delicious as well.

Came here with my lady for a nice dinner, looking for something more fancy. The atmosphere in the bar area is very nice an appealing. The dinning section appeared to me as being too dark. Actually not much light there, so reading the menu was a bit difficult. The service was ok, but far from what one would expect from... More

The food is excellent, the staff friendly and accommodating...BUT our waiter seemed to have responsibilities for tables in three or four different sections of the restaurant, with the end result being that he looked harried and service was s-l-o-w. We felt bad for him. But it meant we left without dessert and didn't leave our usual hefty tip. It seems... More

We love visiting national harbor at Christmas - unfortunately there are a few restaurants that have a great national chain reputation that have fallen significantly short on reputation - SO because you recognize the name - don't believe the hype- The big offender is mccormicjkk and Schmidt's - plain and simple this is an outpost of th bigger brand that...
