It was fine. Nothing spectacular. About 10 % overpriced given the quality of food. Would eat there again but not for a special occasion. Main thought on way home: I really miss Rays the Steaks.

The drinks are great and so are the people. Good atmosphere and you cannot beat the prime rib!

Hadn't been to Epic in a while and decided to go for Valentine's Day. They were handing out red roses and the special was a surf & turf, which was excellent. Their wine list is one of the best in the area and we also love their baby back ribs.

We had been meaning to try Epic for several years and it just never worked out until friends came to town. The food was 4 1/2 stars. I did think the portions for sides were inconsistent. The Mac & Cheese side (delicious!!) was just slightly too small to be considered a shared side. The coleslaw though could have feed 4. As a person with a wheat allergy (and multiple others) I would also have liked to have seen a notation of what was/wasn’t gluten free. They wait staff was good about answering questions and switching a Mac & Cheese side for another side choice. The restaurant is nicely laid out especially considering the footprint they have to work with. We will definitely go back and will recommend it to out of town business guests we know.

The food was very good and our party of three each enjoyed our meals. Our server ( I believe his name was James) was average; however, the manager on duty did stop by to check on us. Overall, we enjoyed our experience at Epic Smokehouse!

Tempted to say Epic! But all kidding aside from the very sweet waitress who was great to the ribs the whole meal was great. I had a salad with added avocado which was good then the ribs which were also good. Oh i had asparagus as a side and they were good! All in all a great place. Parking right across the street too! I would definitely recommend going.

The food was only OK. Chose from the Special menu for restaurant Week and was underwhelmed. The purpose of the event is to showcase food and drive new business. Didn’t work. Ribs and fries looked great but lacked flavor. Appetizer of wonton pork tastes “off”. Desert of key lime pie was simple and sweet.

Restaurant week value was a good deal. Also got take out ribs which were outstanding.
Odd that the waiter told me they didn't have ribs, so I had to show him the menu!

Entree Salad portion was shockingly small, even for someone like me who does not have a huge stomach/appetite.

I ordered an extra small side salad b/c the entree salad did not fill me up, but when I got my bill, the waitress charged me with: 2 entree salad, and 1 small side salad. Yes, it was a mistake but it was frustrating b/c she kept on misunderstanding what I was telling her. She was too dense and did not give full attention to the customer.

This is NOT even a high end restaurant but with two person eating, the bill came out to be 90 USD (my boyfriend ordered pork ribs, I ordered entree salad, and a side salad).

If you want the BBQ experience, no need to go here. Waste of your hard earned dollars.

The food was amazing! The staff was a little distracting. We sat at a table right by the the expo pick up and there were waiters discussing at an elevated voice about someone taking another’s table, and a waiter playing with a figurine and being inappropriate (cursing in a “playful” manner) with a cook.
Other than that, food was LEGIT. Literally melted in your mouth it was awesome.

Excellent smokehouse! I first ate at Epic four years ago, and recently visited again during a recent trip to DC. This is my third visit, and the quality is still excellent with the same favorite options I loved. The menu is diverse and the flavors are unique. Your visit is sure to be an excellent dining experience.

I ordered the prime rib which was supposed to come with a horseradish cream sauce instead they only had plain horseradish. Also asked for a side change and they forgot to bring it. Nothing special. Prime rib was cold

Made a last minute reservation for a Saturday night. We enjoyed the smoked prime rib, a perfect medium rare and tender. Filet mignon also medium rare & tender. Loved the bacon sprouts. Finished off with the bread pudding. We would return. Reasonably priced for NoVa area.

Always enjoy Epic. The bartender Julie is great, who I did have my last visit. However, the other young lady, um, not so much. Energy kind of off, unless she knows you.
