St. Arnold's Mussel Bar- Cleveland Park
Mussel Monday ManiaMussels at St. A's are wonderful any day, but on Monday they are only $10.00 (for a big bowl, including frites). They've got over 20 varieties of preparations, ranging from classic to an Old bay/sausage/Corn/Potato broth that sounded weird but worked. New Belgium and Ommegang drafts at half price on Mondays also make this the day to go.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time. Server wasHad a great time. Server was helpful and always available. GM came and sat with us for a little while and gave some suggestions. Going there with a group was great. The downstairs was a little dark but that was the least noticable after a few great drinks. beer selection was amazing belgian white ale.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Mussels and Amazing BeersSt Arnolds is an unknown gem. Their mussels are amazing. Any way that you like them. Not enough people know about this place. An amazing neighborhood hangout and I don't live in the neighborhood :) Get off of the Metro and St Arnolds is right there.
Their beer selection is amazing. Forget the Bud Lite. They have an amazing selection of beers and incredible Happy Hour prices. We will make this place a weekly date night with my wife :)5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMbest customer service i havebest customer service i have ever received at a restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEnergetic Happy HourMy friend and I had a great bucket of mussels and wonderful Belgian beer at a Friday happy hour here. The scene was very energetic (and so it got hard to hear towards the end - despite the open windows!), and our waitress was extremely helpful and pleasant. Good place to go hang out after work or with a friend on the weekend.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Hour and Mondays = $10Happy Hour and Mondays = $10 mussels (that's 1/2 the regular price)and some drink specials. They pretty much only serve Belgian beers, but they have a large selection. The "cocktails" are unique, basically two beers mixed together (like a black and tan, but better).4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the mussels and thereLove the mussels and there are so many broth flavors to choose from.

The wait staff was patient and friendly, as well as funny! The place became very crowded as the night progressed, but it wasn't a bad thing, and the food and drinks were brought out quickly. The staff is very knowledgeable about the menu and the beer selection, and willing to help. I plan to go back for Happy Hour when they have 1/2 price mussels!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSo nice to have so closeLiving in Cleveland Park we often skip over our neighborhood spots for the more vibrant eateries downtown. Don't. St. Arnold's Mussel Bar is amazing. All the mussel dishes are incredible and the hot wings and beer specials on Monday are great. I've had nearly all the mussel pots and I would highly recommend any if the flavors described match what you're looking for. While the beer selection is great, be careful - it can get pricey when you're ordering refills and not paying attention to how many you've drank!
The only aspect of Arnold's I wouldn't recommend is their brunch. The menu is okay at best and the food was very small portions for the price. Stick to the mussels and you can't go wrong!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPete S. - Long Island, NYAuthentic Belgian fare and an amazing list of Belgian beers!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThese are the best musselsThese are the best mussels in DC - and maybe the best French fries!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
