St. Arnolds on Jefferson fits a
lot of diner and drinkers into a garden-level room with a fairly small footprint, but the mussels and specialty Belgian beers are worth it. While the noise may require talking loudly to your friends, the din comes mainly from those in the restaurant and not the music. Overall, it's a bar and one with a great menu of drinks and food. Try the house special mussels at happy hour for almost half-off the menu price."

Having been now 4x to St. Arnold's
my husband and I really enjoy the place and constantly recommend it to friends or visitors. It's a great combo of seafood (mussels especially) and beer. There's a great selection of light and dark beers that compliment the food. We haven't ventured too far from the St Arnolds mussels (we add ol bay to spice it up). The fries are also exceptional. The place isn't terribly big, and there's really only one spot for the bar. The happy hour is fantastic for drink and $10 mussel specials so, it does get packed. If you want a table I would highly recommend making a reservation. It's not so big I wouldn't really recommend groups more than 6 but it could work."

St. Arnolds is a nice reprieve
from the typical Dupont Circle scene. A dark little basement bar with some of the best mussels and frites you can find around DC. Great for happy hour also... half price mussels!"

Food and server was good. Waiter
was very rude when taking orders and serving water. Probably not going to return because of poor service."

Great beer selection! Went for
girls night and the energy was so high, it was def more of a bar scene than fine dinkng, exactly what we wanted. The jalapeño white wine mussels were to die for, so spicy and just perfect! The house favorite was also good and the grilled salmon too. All the mussels came with fries that were also delicious, very crunchy with a nice sauce on the side (and ketchup). They even added cilantro for us, no charge. The server was very attentive keeping our drinks and beers replenished at all times. I will go back very soon!"

I found St Arnold's online and
chose it for a different experience for after work drinks/dinner (rather than the usual American adjusted 'theme' food). The place filled up in a matter of 15 mins and the food, service and ambiance were great and our party enjoyed themselves."

Mussels were awesome!! Will go
back. Seating was slightly cramped and it was loud, but it was great."

Went to St. Arnold's with a group
of friends. We each got a pot of mussels and ate them all! The food was fabulous and the beer selection was great--some of my favorite and rare international choices and they will serve you by the liter. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and encouraged us to be adventurous with the menu, and we were glad for it! It's pretty small and a little loud, but absolutely charming."

It was crowded but they managed to
expand our table to accommodate our expanding group. Service was a bit lax, but it was crowded and didn't really bother me. The Mussels and their presentation was outstanding - don't wear white and order the vodka sauce though! Will return again."

Waited 20 minutes after original
reservation time to be seated. No apology..."

Mussels St Arnold are such a good
decision when dining - can't go wrong with any of the Belgium beers on tap too."

My wife and I brought a small
group of our friends out to St. Arnold's for my wife's birthday (she loves Mussels). Making the reservation was very easy, as they had plenty of availability-- Reserving for Saturday night, made reservation Friday afternoon. I was a little nervous as we walked up to the place, as the look from the outside wasn't stellar. But as soon as we got in, an amazing smell overwhelmed all of us! From the minute we stepped in, the night / dinner did not let us down. The food.... the food was amazing -- All of the food that came to us at St. Arnold's was as if they has JUST PULLED IT from the oven / stove. The beer selection blew my mind-- do not skip out on the 1L mugs, its an experience. WILL RETURN / RECOMMEND!!!"

Great dive bar/restaurant in
DuPont Circle. We went for brunch on a Saturday morning. Great mussels. Fat and flavorful. Good fries and bread for dipping. Large variety of styles, I had pesto, wife had St Arnold's, friend had scampi. We all agreed that they were really really good. Friend's kid had french toast covered in berries which was also very good. Good selection of Belgium beers including Rodenbach (if you like sour ales)."
