I’ll start with the good. The people and the service were wonderful. Everyone was so nice and perfectly attentive.
Now, the not so good. We really wanted the food to be excellent. The menu while expected for a restaurant named Epic Smokehouse, the food did not live up to it. We ordered the Burnt ends and the Epic Combo for two. The Ends were delivered sizzling in a cast iron skillet and while hot the chunks of brisket were overwhelmed by the bbq sauce. Maybe it is just my preference but burnt ends done right should have enough smoke and spice to stand on there own. The combo arrived at the table looking delicious, prime rib, pulled pork, ribs, brisket and two sides, mashed potatoes and sprouts. Other than the sprouts, everything else was just warm at best. The meat was tender but I hate to say it, way short on smoke and flavor. The potatoes were bland as well. I’m so disappointed to be posting a less than stellar review. There is so much potential here. With the staff in mind, I think it worth giving Epic a second chance. On a positive note, the bread pudding was delicious.
Quick suggestion, adding a few slices of potato bread and some crispy pickles to the combo would take it up to another level without adding much cost.
Great would recommend to everyone dining in that area of town
Always a wonderful place to meet, drink, and eat.
This was a great choice. COVID protocols are very apparent with tables being closed off to allow for plenty of room in between parties. There was a good number of options to choose from. The brisket was outstanding! I’m particular about Mac & Cheese, and this was some of the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommended.
Lunch with one of my friends. The burnt ends we're great. I also got the dark and Stormy. They gave us a complimentary glass of mimosa.
Excellent food, fast friendly service, and nice ambiance. No complaints.
Smoked prime rib was fabulous.
Great birthday lunch was had for our 10-year-old son. Will come again.
I've been to this place several times and took my boyfriend out for his birthday a few days ago. That crab cakes are absolutely delicious 😁👍🏼, The steak however had to be done over because it wasn't well done everything else was good. And a Long Island iced tea had to be done over but that's due to personal taste.
Amazing as always.
Second experience just as good as the first. Thanks again.
Can't say enough good things about this place. We moved to the neighborhood back in October and noticed the lack of restos that were worth coming back to. Epic fits the bill. Looking forward to the next meal.
Wonderful meal and service.
16 ounce prime rib was perfect. Had the soup of the day which was delicious.
Look forward to returning.
Great diversity on their menu; if you love smoked food, this has to be a great place for you.
Great menu - everything on it tastes amazing!
The service was not great. I was asked 4 times by 2 waiters if we were done with our plates. I had already said we were not. Then as my fiancé was in the middle of clearing his the waitress was like oh are you done now and he still had half his plate left he was scooping in. Another waiter came over before and waved his hand all over my fiancé’s plate asking if he was done and I really don’t appreciate someone waving their hands all over his plate. Especially with corona going around, it’s just not appropriate. We love Epic and come alot, but we’re not impressed with how the service was asked. And it’s not like we took our time eating and holding up the table either. We were out in 45 minutes. It was ridiculous to be asked this many times if we were done, just let us enjoy Valentine’s Day.
Date night at epic. We had a great time. The service was excellent and the food was also very very good. The service and staff were on point and shared the responsibilities. I would definitely go for another visit.
Our server was extremely friendly and recognized that we had been there before. Unexpected find on the wine list was perfect for date night. The Brisket Poutine and the Pancetta Mac & Cheese are to die for! We live nearby and will definitely be back (often)!
Very pleasing in all ways. Great service, COVID-19 aware. Food was excellent. Prime rib perfectly prepared.
Look forward to returning.
Disappointed- food totally over done. Service was great but the Kitchen seemed to be having an off night. .
From start to finish, everything was lovely. From the service to the food, ESPECUALLY THE CRABCAKES. The service attendant checked on my party often and the ambience was perfect. You can go there for a date, family or just an outing. I will be going again this weekend. The only thing I wasn't fond of were the collard greens. They weren't bad at all, just not my type of flavor.
Jana is the GREATEST!
Great service abs great food! Our group enjoyed the experience.
Some of the best food in the area! Troy, the bartender, makes a killer Manhattan. Always great service, the whole team is super friendly. If available, the Prime rib is a must try. Can’t wait to go back!
Our server was attentive and maintained active connection with us ensuring we lack nothing. The food was acceptable, nothing extraordinary but better than most.
Stephanie was a terrific waitress! Very accommodating!
EPIC is my favorite neighborhood go to. Food is always good, with great service always a 10
Great food, great drinks, I’ll be back.
Excellent service and cuisine, dined outside. Thank you!
Amazing experience, great food and service!
Got the wrong order - the chicken sandwich is very very spicy. Also found two long thyme stalks in my onion soup, which was tasty until that. While the wait staff was very attention, with these two issues, was not a great first dining experience.
The service was great, as usual. Our server was so sweet and always checking in on us. The food was amazing and came out in perfect time!
Awesome Place, service is impeccable!! Food is fantastic
The food was delicious and the portions were exactly right, but the service left something to be desired. They only had one waitress (who it was apparent didn't want to be there) and they had cooks running food. It was a significant lag time for them to serve us, and they only had 5-7 tables total for brunch. I'm sure they were understaffed so I won't hold it too much against them, and the food is delicious overall.
Food was decent but not extraordinary or something to rave about. Lemonade is made in house but was tart and bitter. Crab cake was nothing like a MD crab cake (hit or miss in DC) but definitely lump crab. The new hot chicken sandwich was pretty good. And service was delightful! I would recommend this place and come back again!
The food was very good & inexpensive the employees were very helpful & welcoming and the restaurant was not loud it was very little noise
Food was fresh and delicious!
The restaurant was not offering happy hour specials which was the reason I went to this restaurant.
We’ve always had efficient and friendly service. They have a delicious pulled pork salad, but must try the Kahlua Pig Rolls. Nice neighborhood restaurant!
Good place very kind waitress
