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.

    I've eaten in both dining rooms and at the bar, and I've always had a great meal. The "back" room is the best for having a conversation in a group, as the noise level is much lower (you're away from the bar!). Staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. All in all it was a great way to enjoy a meal with friends.

    Our server, Megan, was outstanding. She was focused on ensuring that our needs were met and we made a number of special requests. She made excellent recommendations and brought out special orders exactly as ordered. When we hesitated about the soup of the day, Megan offered a taste to help with the decision. The turkey sausage and kale soup was delicious. The food was flavorful, well-prepared and attractively plated. Courses were served in a timely manner, leaving us lots of extra time to get to the theater.

    I had the pulled pork Benedict, which was inventive and very good. My wife had the veggie Benedict, which she actually raved about. One guest at our table received an omelet that she felt was cold. They took it away and delivered a new one in very short order. What's more, they took it off the bill. The service was outstanding.

    I first went to Logan Tavern for a large group birthday dinner, then for brunch with a couple friends, and most recently dinner w a colleague - each time the service has been good, the food excellent, and the atmosphere warm and inviting. It is a fun relaxed place, and the food is inventive without being fussy, fresh and tasty. The lamb burger is very good, the salads are crunchy and fresh, and the appetizers are very good and not too large so you cant eat your entree' . All in all, a great place.

    The food and drinks were good, and the ambiance is very nice (hip but comfortable) but I had what feels like kind of an odd experience. Our waiter spilled my glass of wine - spilled enough of it that he had to run to get towels to mop it up and commented on the fact that the glasses are wobbly - but did not offer to give me a new glass or even refill the amount that he spilled. He was otherwise lovely, but I really couldn't believe he dumped my drink and did nothing about it.

    I'm a creature of habit, so it's hard to pass up the southern fried chicken or meatloaf. They used to have awesome crab cakes, but they're gone from the menu. Very tasty salads. Garlic mashed potatoes. Hands down, the cooked greens are my favorite--one of these days I'm going to order sides of spinach, chard and brussel sprouts and forget the entre. Yum.Then I'd actually have room for one of their desserts.

    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

    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.
