We stopped in for apps and a drink on a holiday sunday evening. We were seated in front. The place was not overly busy and less so as we were finishing up. The food was avg but what annoyed us both was after the busboy took our used plates he came back a few minutes later and set the table... More

This was a fantastic place to stop and eat lunch with my daughter. Lovely chicken sandwich and club sandwich. Great service, friendly and funny. Would definitely have given higher rating as this was our best food experience in Washington. However, on returning to our hotel room I checked my credit card statement online. I found that what we were charged... More

Walked over from the Dupont Circle Hotel, brought some snow with us to boot. Warm cozy atmosphere, great coffee, great service with smiles and laughter. Who wants serious when on vacation! Would visit again when in town and have that gargantuan ham steak with eggs and home fries.

If you want a taste of what real DC life is like, this the place to go. This diner is a frequent hangout for the gay older crowd and DC locals. Though you may spot a few families about, it is mostly a couples joint and caters to inexpensive dates who want expensive fare. The diverse menu advertises a hardy... More

Annie's has been around nearly as long as I've been alive. Been coming here on an off since 2004. The experience is almost always the same, average to bad service, sassy comical attitude from the staff, quickly served and average tasting diner style food. It seems its still in existence simply because its in the former gayborhood turned young Gen... More

You can't go wrong with Annie's. It's been a staple in this neighborhood for years, the food is solid and by far they have the best Manhattan in DC. My husband loves the fish and chips and I'm always ordering a burger or the Greek salad. Sometimes the veggies need a bit of TLC, but overall this is a nice... More

My partner and I ate here. We reserved a table in advance. They gave us a sweet spot in the corner next to the window. The place was packed but it still felt private in that spot. The service was perfect. The waiter was both handsome and polite. The food was delicious!! Nice sized steaks cooked exactly the way we... More
