Shaw Tavern is my local public
Shaw Tavern is my local public house and I have always enjoyed my experiences. This was for a send-off for my wedding and Shaw was very accommodating to a large party where friends came in and out over the evening. Great service and a great place to have an informal party.

Everything was very nice.
Everything was very nice. Staff & guests were friendly. Some might think it was too loud bc lots of folks into the basketball game on, but we enjoyed all the action & people watching. Food was reaaly good too. It's hard to find a place for decent meal before a show at the 9:30 Club or Howard Theater but this works and only have to park once.

Best restaurant in Shaw.
A world away from the madness of 14th St., I appreciate the neighborhood feel of this place while at the same time it's a very good restaurant. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the feel is like a long-established restaurant in Europe.
Most enjoyable meal I've had in months.

Great Spot to get a bite or a drink. The burgers are excellent (per my companions), the pizza was pretty forgettable though....

The food was very good and the service was friendly. It was a little loud inside for conversation so we sat outside. There is construction happening next door but once that it completed the outdoor seating will be excellent.

I dined at Shaw's Tavern on Friday May 31, 2013. I made reservations through open table and requested seating outside. I arrived and got seating inside by a window near the back of the restaurant. My seating was perfect. Loved it. The restaurant was nice inside and out. I tried a brand of wine I never had before and Loved it as well. The food was good but the portions were for what I got. I left hungry but that's not biggie. Nice place to go for drinks. I'm not big on restaurants that are loud, so the noise level in Shaw's Tavern was just right. A great experience for me.

Great neighborhood bar
The food is more than your typical bar food. We love the fried green tomatoes. The pizza is perfect for kids. The hamburger and rib plate is good as well.

We had a warm welcome and sang a cute birthday song with a bunch of other customers. Goat cheese salad was great and the sausage scramble was good too, but the biscuit was not my favorite.

We sat outside on a gorgeous evening sharing awesome fried green tomatoes then delighting in salad and entrees. The blue salad is excellent as is the jambalaya orzo. I'll return.

Great Tavern that has matured
My wife and I have been to Shaw Tavern three times. Shortly after they opened, a few months ago and this past weekend. Their food went from ok to excellent. Every dish we received was top notch this past Sunday. We will definitely return. I will note that since the neighborhood is still on the rise, you can expect to see homeless folks stare at you while you enjoy a yummy meal on the tavern's outdoor seating area. Also, since the tavern is located on Florida Ave the street noise is very high.

It was great sitting on patio when it was a hot day. Really delight full and great refreshing drinks pink lemonade with vodka!, beers and food. It has a bit of an European vibe which we love.

Fun rustic atmosphere with nice cocktails and good food. Will definitely return.

Now a believer
My first experience here was less than ideal but thanks to good customer service extended by the general manager via a gift card my friends and I visited a second time. Our second experience was a stark contrast to the first. We had excellent service, prompt seating and tasty food. All around we had an enjoyable evening dining alfresco. Most importantly we all now agree to frequent this neighborhood gem for outdoor group meals! Oh and don't forget to order the Mac n cheese :)

Fabulous place for affordable,
Fabulous place for affordable, friendly outdoor brunch in the neighborhood. Waitress was great, although they seemed slightly understaffed for the first 30 minutes we were there. THey keep the bottomless mimosa's flowing! Well worth 12 dollars.

My family and I enjoyed our brunch at Shaw's Tavern.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
1/2 price burgers on Tuesdays and 2-for-1 beers. Can't beat it. My buddy appreciated the portobello option and we would both like to see a homemade veggie burger be added. I swapped the fries for a good portioned side salad for no upcharge. Food was tasty and my buddy liked his beers. No complaints!

Surprisingly good entrees
Had two special entrees, braised lamb shank and NY strip both were amazing. Both of which are being added to the menu. Always get the fried green tomatoes. Highly recommend for dinner! House red wine is also really good and reasonably priced.

Great neighborhood spot
My friends and I went had brunch at Shaw's Tavern this past weekend and had a great time. The restaurant has a lovely patio so we decided to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather. The server was very attentive and the brunch menu is very good. We all ordered different dishes and everyone was pleased with what they ordered.
My only improvement would be to serve better coffee. The coffee was pretty bland. Other than that minor glitch, I would recommend this place for brunch.

Was looking for the perfect place to eat before a concert at the Howard Theater. I could not have found a better place. Will definitely go back again. all of the food and service was fabulous.

Great Out-of-Town Guest Dinner Spot
I met a couple of friends and an out-of-town visitor to DC here for the first time. What a great find! Very fun atmosphere, good menu with tasty comfort food, and really nice staff. The NY Strip was perfectly prepared and the cheesy grits were delish. The rustic, vintage decor was great for a visitor to feel like they were in a fun local DC spot - and even my friends from "the Commonwealth" were surprised to find it was just as good as their preferred Arlington hot spots. Will definitely be going back soon.

Fab brunch experience
The service was amazing and the food was great. We'll definitely be coming back! And if you aren't into mimosas, try a jalapeno margarita, it's FANTASTIC.

Shaw Tavern is great
I'm a frequent visitor of Shaw, and I always have a great experience. The staff is responsive to turning down the loud music so you can hear a conversation. I shy away from the entrees--seem a bit expensive--but ALL of the food is great.
