Diner Reviews
  • "Having driven past Mrs. K's for close to 20 years, we went in on a whim. We had no idea how beautiful the garden and outdoor area are! The service was on point and the food met expectations for a traditional fine dining menu."

  • "My family and I are locals and frequented Mrs.K's for special events. I invited several friends to dine and was deeply disappointed with the service. The place was not busy but it took some time before someone took our orders and even missed giving bread to another guest. For the most part the food was good but the bread pudding which I usually order was very dry. The gin martini was not chilled enough but the key lime pie was perfect!"

  • "If it's not broke don't fix it. Fabulous place that I grew up loving and I still love. Truly a gem."

  • "We were surprised that they only have brunch on Sunday afternoon. That being said the choices were quite varied and very good . The biggest draw back was the server assigned to our table. She only came by once after seating us. We had to rely on other wait staff to clear our used plates and get more drinks. She did show up to collect the bill. We were seated dowstairs in a room right off if the buffet area. We were there @ 1:30 on Sunday the 17thif August."

  • "I have been to this place five times and it never disappoints. The food is good quality and delicious! I have been there for lunch, dinner, and very recently, brunch. It is very reputable for brunch and thus usually booked on Sundays. It is recommended to make a reservation for brunch ahead of time. The brunch is indescribable. You ought to try it out for yourself. The staff is very nice and they provide great service!"

  • "Ms K is always a very reliable brunch place - I take my family for brunch on special occasions. I gave it 4 stars this time because we were seated in the basement level which was nice, but I prefer the first level floor. However, some of my family members actually liked it better than the first level. So there you go; a matter of personal preference."

  • "Took my parents to Mrs. K's on the last night of restaurant week. We all enjoyed it. Duck, scallops and flank steak were the 3 entree items."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Mrs.Kay's Toll House never disappoints. Paul was our waiter that evening and outdid himself taking care of one of the guest's quirky allergies. No seams in the service from receptionist to bus boy. The food was excellent; portions neither too large nor too small. The noise level got a little high as the restaurant filled but nothing one had to shout over. An enjoyable evening with out of town guests."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "The restaurant week menu was weak. No vegetarian option. Normal menu prices are very steep and food isn't any better than any other place you can go for cheaper. I probably won't return."

  • "I dine at Mrs K Tollhouse about twice a year, however I this time was a miss. I arrived around two p.m., one hour before closing. The buffet was a mess. The food pans were empty. A bucket with water was nearly overflowing under the table and the food was really salty. Especially the Caribbean pork. There were some dishes that passed, like the salmon at the carving station. The buffet is too expensive to have bad food and service. I expected good food no matter what time I arrived. Food service 101 is the last diner should get the same service as the first. The staff seem haired. Perhaps they had an unusual busy brunch. Mrs K Tollhouse is a neighborhood gem, however I will have to pass on another brunch at this location."

  • "I love Mrs. K, and have been there for brunch in the past. The noise level is horrific. I brought a friend with me who had not been to Mrs K before. Whereas she enjoyed the food, neither of us enjoyed the loud noise from the table next to us. We could not hear each other talk for the loud volume of noise, talking and birthday singing next to us. I really did not appreciate the loud noise and felt it was disrespectful to others. Not sure if I will come back for brunch."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "This is the best brunch I've had. The food was delicious and fresh. The servers were very attentive and polite...a lost art. They were very well-trained. The decor was elegant and quaint at the same time. The ambiance was relaxing and romantic. Both the indoor and outdoor dining were desirable. I can't wait to go again."

  • "My wife and I have been coming here for our anniversary for almost 10 years, and have loved their Sunday brunch and beautiful gardens (we have friends that say they look forward to our annual pictures taken there). This year, as I went to wash my hands, I discovered that the men's room was out of order, so the staff suggested the rest room in the cellar. Well, I had never been down there, and was absolutely amazed by the very cool dining area and bar down there. We've always come here for brunch, now I might have to find a reason to go there for drinks!"

  • "Hadnt been there in a long time. But really enjoyed being there again."

  • "Our first visit was extraordinary. We had no idea what to expect. The building itself is an experience. It is beautiful and wonderfully decorated. Must visit the basement. It is like a wine cellar and just fascinating. The grounds are spectacular, flowers everywhere. The staff was as excited as we were to show us around. It was nice and quite. So many restaurants are so loud you cannot even talk. This was great. The food was amazing. We had the crab cakes, salmon and ribs. The fries are really good. It just wasn't dinner, it was truly an experience and we will definitely return again."

  • "We were celebrating a birthday. Enjoyed dining at Mrs. K's have come at least once or twice a year. We live in Annapolis so have to plan our time."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The ambiance and the service were pleasing but the food was a big disappointment. Cold, flavorless, the presentation on the buffet was not appealing at all. I could only eat the waffles and I am guessing the omelette would have been ok too. The mimosa was not included in the brunch price and it was warm and unpleasantly acidic. Too bad because the spot and the crowd are very nice."

  • "The garden is lovely, the service attentive, and the food good enough for a brunch buffet."

  • "You can't go wrong here! If you want an upscale feel but moderately prices meal eat at Mrs Ks upstairs - for a more romantic experience go downstairs to the bar area."

  • "When we come from PA to MD to see son we are always happy to go to Mrs. K's thanks to Open Table. Servers are friendly and competent...Food is good esp the lunch French Dip...Crabcake not so crabby...alas. wonderful desserts... Best for Sunday brunch..."

  • "We were married at this restaurant 11 years ago, and come back each year for brunch or dinner. You will not find better service anywhere, the food is outstanding, and the ambience is like no other. Truly a gem!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Service was outstanding as was food. This kind of service is not usually found. Would go back in a NY second. My friend and I are still talking about what a delightful time we had. Kudos 2 all. Ceejay"

  • "I have always enjoyed Mrs. K's Toll House restaurant. My Mother (RIP) and Aunts always enjoyed brunch as well as lunch at this restaurant. I have been recommending this restaurant to family, friends and colleagues for years. I will always come back."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Who knew this restaurant had been purchased and transformed oh so many 10 plus years ago. NOt me till last year. Now it is on my regular list for dinners, lunches, and brunches. Service is excellent and the ambiance is delightfully old country with a garden to look out onto that is to die for. Always a pleasure to return here."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Food was good, but service was not that good. But it was very good as far as the buffet was concerned. We never had anyone come to our table unless they were collecting plates. We had to get up to asked for water, a spoon, OJ, Salt & Pepper & hot sauce all separate occasions. So it was pretty annoying."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Because of the closing of the 2nd buffet (usually one on each floor), many reservations were pushed back to accommodate people who weren't able to climb stairs. My res was one of those, but I was ok with it as my brunch buddy is recovering from a hospital stay & they worked with us. The staff was courteous & apologetic which helped keep my "hanger" at bay (we waited 30-40min after our res). The food is standard brunch fair; bacon, eggs, carving station, etc., but there are also oysters, crabs, shrimp, and other goodies. As a gal used to bottomless brunches I was surprised only iced tea and coffee were included. For the price I've certainly had better brunches throughout DC, but the picturesque setting & good energy do make it worth the try."

  • "Our experience was NEARLY perfect, great food, great service and great ambiance. Our only complaint isn't something you can really fix unless you provide a special room for young children. We were seated next to a very energetic (read very loud) 2 year old and his equally loud mother. We should have requestd another table right away, but the restaurant was VERY crowded. The mother added to the commotion by loudly correcting her son. I am completely in favor of raising courteous kids, and don't believe in baby- talking them. However, this was neither the time nor the place for this lesson. Our experience was certainly affected by the noise. We will dine here again, but only with no kids in the room."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We came for a birthday lunch celebration on a quiet Saturday in July, our first visit. The service was courteous and the food quite good but not extraordinary. The highly recommended jumbo lump crab cake, while fresh and tasty, was small and overpriced at $20, accompanied only by a drizzle of remoulade, some fries, and coleslaw. (The rainbow trout listed in the online lunch menu, which I had hoped to try, wasn't on the actual menu at all.) The chilled soup of the day was cantaloupe, sweet and a bit too like nectar for my taste. Still, the lovely old rooms and the garden view made for a charming atmosphere, my dining companions enjoyed their meals (particularly the gazpacho), and I might be tempted to give this place another try."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The mussels were the most deliciously seasoned I have ever had, anywhere. My two dining companions and I came to Mrs. K's to celebrate the release of my colleague's book, and we could not have asked for a lovelier experience. Our waiter, Paul Joseph, was so gracious and helpful, and he even took the time to take photos of us down in the tea room by the Lutz glass exhibit so we'd have photos to commemorate the occasion."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Love this place. Have been twice so far and the food and drinks have been amazing. The ambience is great; outdoor seating is beautiful and fairly quiet even with the patio setting. Great for dinner with a group of friends or a romantic night out :-) Next thing to try is their brunch! :-)"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Went to Mrs. K's for an anniversary dinner and was sorely disappointed. The food was fair at best. Their signature crab cakes had no flavor, and the coleslaw tasted as if is was about to turn bad. Did not eat it. Also ordered a Rib-eye steak that was over cooked and looked like something you would be served at a Rustler's steakhouse."

  • "We had one person in a wheelchair because of a broken ankle, and the staff at Mrs. K's went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Both at entry and exit, a staff member opened the door and assisted us in getting the wheelchair in and out. They are also very welcoming and friendly throughout our brunch experience. They obviously have had great training, and enjoy their jobs."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We were very disappointed with the quality of the food . We would always come especially for those melt in your mouth waffles. Something changed,the waffles were Cakey and thick and the cook made a lot of them at one time. Please go back to the way you used to do it."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Whether it's a special occasion or a last-minute decision, I've never been disappointed. I prefer the wine cellar, but even when it is not available because of a party, I've gotten a lovely seat with a view of the garden or shown a table on the patio. The service, which is always good, was superb on this last visit. Paul, our waiter, was perfect. The crabcakes were delicious with barely any filler and the chef's special, crab stuffed shrimp on a bed of risotto, were wonderful."

  • "It was very nice...met a friend and we arrived early, so we had a great table with a nice view of the gardens. This has a lot of history and the place has been restored to a beautiful restaurant. I've been here many times and I never get tired of coming to my 'old' neighborhood to have a delightful and delicious lunch or dinner."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The service was less than expected but the food made up for it. The bar was great and the service behind the bar was great. We waited too long for our salads then waited another 30 minutes for the meal. We had to ask a couple of times for a refresh of our drinks. The staff was very nice and polite."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "My first time there, for lunch, with a friend who has been there many times over the years. She says it can be hit or miss. The service was great. It was only our server's second day on the job, and she was excellent, as was the host, who constantly followed up. But we ordered a side of truffle fries, and they sent out a container of ends. We sent them back. We both ordered the Spring Chopped salad, and the bacon and artichoke hearts were missing. Attention to detail and presentation need improving. For the price we paid, I expect a little better. I will give them another shot, because I liked the menu, needs more exploring. Brunch looks interesting."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I am glad the hostess noticed we were a couple and might want to be seated in a more quiet area. Thank you Also, the waitresses were kind to wish more a happy birthday and also marked my receipt with a nice birthday wish. Thank you again. Food was a little cold though. Will come back for sure."

  • "This place used to be great, but this time it suffered from poor service and high levels of noise. My girlfriend and I went for Sunday brunch. But it was loud enough that it could've been a World Cup soccer match inside the restaurant. Additionally, the omelette cooks were talking with each other loudly in Spanish. I felt as though I was bothering them by ordering an omelette. The waitress came to our table when she felt like it. And the food on the steam tables was not even hot in most cases. Ever all, not a great experience. Maybe, I'll sit outside next time. This would not be my last time here; however, it will be a while until I go back."
