A word from Old Glory
Of all of our "native" food, barbecue is uniquely, authentically and gloriously All-American. Old Glory, located on historic M Street in Georgetown, captures the food, flavor and feel of the great barbecue restaurants of the United States, and offers representations of each styles of barbecue served in different parts of the country. "It looks like a rib joint, sounds like a rib joint and smells like one...most important, of course, the kitchen smokes fine barbecue," says the Washington Post. The huge barbecue pit, the open kitchen, and the 1901 Silver Dollar Four Winds hand-crafted bar, create lively, exciting atmosphere that is downright down-home.

    Old Glory is a nice restaurant with good food. Personnel is friendly. Overall the prices are a bit high for the food you get, but M street in Georgetown is probably an expensive location for everything.

    Old Glory is a great place for no frills bbq. The ribs and pulled pork are excellent. I'm less impressed by the turkey and brisket. If you want a healthy alternative, try the chop house salad.

    Old Glory manages to take high class barbeque and make it a casual experience in a fun sports var type atmosphere. Unlike many of the more pretentious spots on M Street Old Glory knows exactly what it is - great barbeque at fair to mid prices for a casual dining experience.

    Stopped in as Open Table gave this a 4 star but I'd give 3 at best. Was greeted, yes, but by someone who it turned out to be a kitchen worker. He did not know specials or prices and sat us at a table with a dirty plate. We don't know why he needed to help out when there were other male staff members were standing around eyeing and chatting about women going by the open door. Not pleasant nor professional. We did stay and ordered the sliders which were quite good but the place is noisy with loud regulars who had been there awhile even though it was only 6PM. Not the type of place you'd want to spend much time unless you drank more. Too bad.

    Food is decent and hugely portioned. Bar is lively, with Georgetown students chanting "Georgetown, Georgetown!" Not much ambiance and certainly not somewhere you'd want to go on a date night...that being said, if you're craving some "Southern" food, this is an option.

    We loved this place! Amazing service, amazing food! Our server Victor was great! He was attentive and very kind. He was always there when we needed him. He took the time to explain the resturant and all the different Foods and sauces, like he was explaining a fine wine list. The food was amazing! Tender pork and brisket donr just right. You can smell fhe hickory from blocks away! Big portions. Fun atmosphere and nice cozy bar. Highly redomend.

    My husband and I went back to Old Glory because it was where we went on our first date 7 years ago. We were given some great ideas for bourbon choices as well as food by our server. Our appetizer was delicious as was my sandwich and my husband's combo platter!! We tried all of their sauces and they were great as well! The only downfall was that it was 79 degrees in the restaurant--we saw the thermostat... I was sweating while eating so that was the only downfall. It was hot out and I'm sure the smokers and other kitchen equipment added to it but I think something might need tweaked for the upcoming hot days!!!

    We stopped by Old Glory because we heard they have good BBQ. The food was good. I wouldn't go so far as to say great. The serving sizes left a little to be desired. The service was OK. It did not seem super busy that day. We were greeted immediately. Got our drinks quickly. Getting the server to come back to take our order and refill drinks could have been faster. Also it took a while for him to come back with the receipt after taking my credit card.

    Food was very good. Service....we weren't sure who our server was (4 different ones to our table) and because we had so many servers, we think that one thought the other was taking care of things. Little attention given to refills for a while. Person who dropped off food said "Your server will be here shortly to explain the various sauces." That never happened. I mean, we were able to figure it out, but if we had waited, the food would have been cold. My wife ordered the pulled pork on a bun w/ one side for (I think) $12. Was a bit over-priced for the portion. The review that we read said they go there often and could never finish a meal because there was so much food. We didn't find that to be the case.

    My family and I was excited to eat at Old Glory. We had not been to the Georgetown area in quite some time. Our server was named Olivia, she was pleasant, engaging, and knowledgeable of the menu items. We were there to celebrate our daughter's birthday, so the night was a special occasion. Olivia talked to our daughter and recommended some menu items to us..the food was amazing beyond belief, served in large portions so we all could sample each others entree. A True BBQ stop for anyone in the Georgetown area!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/10/2013
    After reading a few recent reviews I was skeptical about making the trek to Georgetown to try this restaurant. My daughter insisted. We went 5:30 on a Saturday night. We had a reservation. Got right in, ordered and our food was there fast. We were startled it arrived so quickly. The BBQ pulled pork was tender and generous and the table sauces YUM. My hubby had the beef brisket and said it was good but had had better. The sides were perfect individual sizes and we both really liked the collard greens and baked beans. I ordered banana pudding to take home. As a Southern girl I was disappointed. It was banana flavored pudding with layers of crunchy praline stuff. No bananas, no 'nilla wafers. Should have read the menu more closely.

  • Dry Saint Louis Style Ribs
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/8/2013
    While the ribs were fall-of-the-bone, they were also dry and not as meaty as we would have liked. The sides were the skimpiest of any rib joint I've ever been to, which was too bad because the mac and cheese and their new smokey baked beans were the best part of the meal. Usually rib joints love to pile on the sides. Not here. I would give this place 2 and a half to 3 stars out of five. Not the best, but not the worst.

    For some odd reason out Opentable reservation was not found in their reservation system which Made us wait an additional 40-45 minutes to get seated. The host was not very accomodating overall Considering i had the email with the confirmation of our reservation. Once we were seated, the service and food were Very good. I would recommend this restaurant as a good place for BBQ.

    We were looking forward to eating here considering the reviews were promising. Unfortunately all of our meals were underwhelming to say the least. The ribs were overlooked, the pulled pork was dry as was the smoked Gouda mac and cheese. Our server only had a few tables but we needed to ask repeatedly for drinks.
