“great place to watch the crowd and have lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2009

You will be seated in the center of Union Station, a magnificant, totally redecorated structure and worth the trip just to see the place. Dine casually and watch all the people go by as they catch the train (another location nearby) or return home from a trip. See members of Congress walk by followed by camera crews too. Food is probably B+ to A-although the atmosphere makes it taste even better. (The key lime pie is authentic A+.) After dining, shop the shops or stroll out to visit the Capitol, or Library of Congress, or the Supreme Court building. A must see for tourists. Food is moderately priced for Washington DC.
