Lobster cocktail was fabulous!! Dinner of crab cakes and new potatoes divine. My first rhubarb pie was serviced warm with a scope of ice cream. What can I say it was perfect!!! I would highly recommend dining here while in DC

We visited Old Ebbitt Grill off the recommendation of a friend. This place is a must stop while in DC. The service was top notch and the food was memorable. We ate lunch and brunch here. For the Bourbon lovers, they have Pappys available. We brought our elementary age kids and they did fine, but it wouldn't be great to bring a large group with many kids. Feel free to dine in your nice jeans and polo.

The service here was impeccable. We have someone who uses a wheelchair in our family and they made getting to our table seamless. In fact we felt like VIP! The food was fantastic. The teenaged kids really enjoyed it also. Great energy. All employees were very gracious. I highly recommend this place. Very accommodating and fun

We sat at the bar because of the long wait. The food is amazing so it would be worth the wait if there is no room or you don't want to sit it the bar. I had the trout and soup of day- both were amazing!!!
