A word from Logan Tavern
It is a common criticism that Washington, D.C., where chains, steakhouses, and take-out joints abound, lacks restaurants that combine great food, friendly prices, and a hip atmosphere. Logan Tavern puts this tragic shortcoming to rest. Located in the dynamic Logan Circle neighborhood, Logan Tavern is a neighborhood restaurant and bar that"s as perfect for a quick weekday bite as it is for a Friday night out with friends. Come by for dinner, lunch, happy hour, or our great weekend brunch for some comfort food with a twist.

    My office has had several birthday lunches at Logan Tavern. Unlike so many restaurants who cram tables and leave little room to get in/out of your seat, not to mention having to hear other conversations, the table placement leaves an incredibly generous amount of room -- allowing you to avoid such hassle. The service is top-notch and the food is consistently delicious.

    The service here was amazing. From the moment we walked in the door to we were treated wonderfully. The happy hours wine was only 4 dollars and better than the house wine I have had at the last 10 restaurants Ive been to. The food was just okay. Maybe we ordered the wrong menu items but we were not blown away.

    I made a reservation for 20 people (though 13 showed up) and they were very accommodating. It was a surprise dinner for my boyfriend and they were very understanding about about us showing up an hour late. The server even split the checks for us! The food was delicious. I recommend the gnocchi, salmon, and fried chicken! But everyone enjoyed their dishes. Great spot for occasions, and even a low key night

    This was our go to place before Studio Theatre for years. The new menu offers lower quality and higher priced foods. The salads are soggy with dressing, the fish overcooked. Too bad. The servers and staff are wonderful and quick as usual.

    We had tickets for Studio Theater and Logan Tavern is convenient, efficient and good - glad we sat outside 'cause the inside gets noisy Food was reasonably priced with good selections - service was very good and I like when the server tells the price of the specials as he relates them - all in all, pleasant start to an enjoyable evening

    The bloody mary bar is AMAZING! I brought my parents here for that reason alone. They were very accommodating when we showed up a bit early and had no problem tacking on an extra person. The waitress was energetic and met all of our needs. She had excellent recommendations and brought all food out in a timely fashion. The food is always good here and this past weekend was no exception. The breakfast BLT was to die for the the mushroom omelet was perfect. I will always come back for more at Logan Tavern.

    Dropped in after a disappointing evening at the Studio Theatre a half-block away. The friendly service at Logan Tavern perked us up. My girlfriend "mezed" on three appetizers: the delicious Buffalo Shrimp, spicy calamari, and a goat cheese salad. I got the Lamb Burger, which came well done as requested. She wished we could have dined outside, but noise restrictions close the sidewalk seating at 9:30 PM. We were again puzzled, but not seriously inconvenienced, by the Tavern's refusal to serve doubles. We will return, hopefully after a better play.

    We were to go at the Birch and Barley, but we changed our minds at the last minute since we had already gone to the Churchkey (same owners). We had a pleasant dinner at the Logan's Tavern, quite busy for a Wednesday evening! Thanks to Camille, our waiter, she was wonderful and so energetic. We enjoyed our dinner except for my overcooked steak. All the rest was super and we were delighted. Veny nice spot and nice employees. We would give a high 3.5*.

    We went to Logan Tavern as part of a summer project to try to find the best fried chicken in DC. The chicken was great and so was the rest of the food. And unlike many other places, this restaurant is very accommodating. You can substitute one vegetable for another, and if you split a salad, they'll split it for you. Also -- noise level perfect. You can converse without shouting. The neighborhood is fun, too.

    My family (husband & 2 kids) and I visited the restaurant will on vacation in DC. Upon our arrival we were immediately seated. The waitress was extremely attentive to our needs. The kids menu had a wonderful selection, my children enjoyed the grilled cheese & steak. We enjoyed the dates appetizer. The waitress asked if that is when we prefer to have the kids meal served. We enjoyed selections from their beer and mix drink menu. I would recommend the pineapple infused vodka. I order and enjoyed the eggplant panni & grits. My husband enjoyed the steak with a side of potatoes. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the DC area with our without children. The staff is extremely attentive and the food is extremely pleasant.

    I was there with a group of six and four of us gravitated to the Chicken Paillard which was unanimously enjoyed! We sat outside in what was a gorgeous summer night in Washington, DC. Logan Tavern has a moderately priced wine list. We enjoyed the Cloudy Bay, sauvignon blanc, which is always a favorite of mine. Logan Tavern is rarely disappointing. They are a dependable neighborhood staple.

    I normally never go back to write a review, but Logan Tavern was so good, I had to give my two cents! My friend and I were looking for a brunch spot on Memorial Day that we could bring her dog to and ending up choosing Logan Tavern. I got there 45 minutes early and was immediately seated at a perfect spot right by the railing. The waiter was so awesome and accommodating, he even brought out a puppy water dish! I'm a vegetarian, and the waiter was able to help me get the dish I wanted. Favorite thing about Logan Tavern's brunch: Make your own Bloody Mary menu! The choices are fun and the Bloodys we concocted were so delicious! Don't miss this place!!!!

    Ate at Logan Tavern on a Saturday evening with mixed success. We ordered the gazpacho soup, the portabello and eggplant sandwich and a grilled burger with mushrooms. We didn't care for the gazpacho soup - one of the spices was overpowering and not to our liking. The house salad was standard in its ingredients but it was cold and the veggies crisp - always a plus. The burger was quite tasty and was cooked well. The only downside was that it was very greasy. The portabello sandwich was very good. Waitstaff was pleasant and attentive. I would eat at Logan again for a quick bite.

    Arrived on time and was seated right away. We ordered the calamari which was greasy and lacked taste. I ordered my favorite dish, chopped salad with chicken. Usually it is very good, but this time the chicken was over cooked. Another friend had a salad with berries and enjoyed it very much. My partner had a pasta salad that had no presentation and tasted like paste. In the past I have had the fried chicken which is excellent. I believe the quality of the food has declined over the years. However, I will go again and hope for better results.
