    We lucked out with the weather.It was beautiful. Sat outside on the water front a breeze and good wait staff. The wines where good.I chose a salad Caesar with salmon and it was just Ok. Everyone else a party of 4 loved there meal.Maybe I should have picked something else to eat but for sure I will the next time we got there.

    I went with my fiancé to celebrate his b-day and I wasn't very impressed with the restaurant. I had made a reservation for a table with a nice view, and no table was reserved for me. When I asked if they could split one of the large tables into two small, so that we could have a nice view, they said they couldn't event though the restaurant was more than half way empty! (it was Monday night). I couldn't believe they just couldn't accommodate a nice table for us in this special occasion. Food was good, but not great for the price. They forgot to give us silverware, the server who brought our plates was kind of rude. They brought the entrée 2 min after the appetizer, so our food got cold. I wouldn't recommend this place for a special occasion

    Always a perfect evening at Tony & Joe's. A table by the window to enjoy the view. The finest ingredients masterfully combined to please the palate. Took advantage of the Restaurant Week DC menu this time. Found no skimping here--only the finest presentation and a wonderful combination of choices. The crabcakes are always good, but particularly delicious this time. Tony & Joe's remains at the top of the list for the food, the vibrant atmosphere and the spectacular view. The service runs like clockwork.

    Had a good time here with great food. Drinks are over priced but that's expected in Georgetown right? The waiter I had was a little smug but idk maybe I'm a smart a*s I guess. But the food was amazing and no complaints there. Right on the waterfront so great for outdoor dining. Just good ambiance. Pretty pricey but not the priciest I have ever seen. It is what it is... You have to pay for good seafood in my opinion. Overall 4 out of 5 stars for me.

    Ate lunch outside on a beautiful summer's day. The stunning view of the river and local environs was marred by the smell of gasoline from the yachts tanking up and some mystery smell I would liken to a compost heap, both of which truly diminished the dining experience. Service was fair at best - business was brisk outside, though the vacant indoors meant that the restaurant was not that busy to account for indifference and forgetfulness. Restaurant Week lunch menu offered its biannual suspects: my dining companion loves the shrimp-and-grits and my crab cake sandwich with lukewarm fries and over-dressed cole slaw was mediocre. However, the salads were delicious (if a bit small) and the key lime pie was pure perfection.

    Recommended to me by family, I went with friends and ate inside because of the size of our party (8). Food was excellent (all choices), and service was attentive and cordial. I recommend this restaurant for its setting as well. If you want a great people watching experience as well, go for a table outside. A fun evening.

    Easily the best seafood meal in a very long time. Three of us dined and we each had a great meal. Two of us ordered the Sword fish and the third ordered the Salmon. Starters was the New England Clam Chowder that was perfect. We also ordered The Wedge and Caesar. Each were wonderful. Not to be missed!

    I've been to Tony and Joe's twice now, once for brunch and this time for dinner. I have to say that I enjoyed the brunch better as it had a nice variety including multiple stations. I had the broiled seafood pot for dinner and it was just ok, not bad but it didn't wow me either. The restaurant has a nice ambience because of the views but some updating is needed.

    I spent a very beautiful tuesday night on the patio with my girlfriend. The Crab dip was horrible, I never send food back but the crab dip had to go!! Why would you ever put shrimp in crab dip? And most of all serve it with corn tortilla chips? BAD DECISIONS. Our server who said he was new, did an amazing job! Although I do not remember his name (my apologies) I loved the patio, the mussels, and the caprese salad. I would return, but I will never have the crab dip again until something is done about it being bland, and those awful corn chips.

    Where the food was fine and our waitress tried her best - she was way over her limit with the amount of tables she needed to wait on. I had to go in finally and purchase a bottle of wine from the bar. We had to ask for our waitress several times. To my surprise -- one of the people we asked was the host that seated us who was way beyond rude and actually said that it was not his job to get our waitress for us. Really?? He needs a class in Hospitality 101.

    The restaurant needs to decide what it is. A red-neck hangout or a table cloth restuarant. Sevice is good...noise is terrible and a dinner can be ruined by one loud table. Just enjoyed that experience (inside ) Saturday night on steriods. Drunks and large groups in wife-beaters is not a pleasant evening.

    This is the second time I've been here in the last month and it's always such a pleasure to visit. On my last visit I wanted to impress a client and T&J's did not fall short. The food was fantastic, the service was great and the ambiance was just right. We both had the crab cakes and grilled shrimp and it was delicious and cooked to perfection. Can't wait to go back for the filet mignon; it's also a fantastic choice!

    Not the type of resturant I would classifi as an unscale dinning experience. Resturant called out for dressy casual and most all the patrons were in shorts. Food very average, presentation very lacking in fine dinning presentation, most all food was over cooked. I would not recommend this resturant for someone visiting Washington DC for an excetional dinner house. This resturant and it's location is geared mainly for the younger collage typoe of a crowd. Exicitng bar sence and out door patio dinning and bar type stuff.

    Oh how I wish this could have been a better experience. Manager didn't seem bothered by our poor service, never even apologized. The brunch buffet was delicious and food was great. Overall, good value for $35 with all of the seafood and hot action stations, but I sincerely don't think I would go back based on our service and management. And this is coming from someone who currently works in the industry!

    Dined on 7/4/2014
    A group of seven of us had 8:15 dinner reservations on July 4th and were absolutely thrilled with out dining experience. We began the meal with the drink special (some sort of Lemon Fizz) and the calamari and crab dip appetizers--all exceeded expectations. Each of our entrees was 100 percent satisfying and delicious. What really made our evening so great, however, was when our waitress made sure we didn't miss the fireworks which began a few minutes after we'd received our main course. She ran over, called our names (we were all impressed she actually remembered them) and then told us to go outside and watch--she'd make sure our food remained untouched until we returned. Great experience overall--I will definitely return.
