Belgian
Granville Moore's is a restaurant with a healthy Belgian fetish, located in the heart of H Street North East (or the Atlas District).
We are known for moules-frites, steak au poivre, delicious brunch and an impressive selection of Belgian-style beers - which include umpteen 750ml bottles, rare Trappist beers and inspired randomness from around the globe (and of course some local beers too).
We really enjoy beer, food, our guests, our staff, and our neighborhood. We’d love for you to be a part of the enjoyment!

Seems to have gone downhill. The restaurant smells very musty. It always has but seems to have gotten worse. The bartender that waited on us was not particularly friendly. The muscles were very good. Burger and chicken sandwich were subpar.

A real dive, what you see is what you get, and the food seems inconsistent - two of us ordered the Belgian style Ruben sandwich, one came dripping and soggy (sauerkraut was not drained before adding?) While the other was fine. This sandwich uses shredded corned beef instead of cross-cut, which produces a chewy unpleasant result, especially if you use a tougher cut that was not cooked long enough...

The restaurant was convenient to the Atlas Theater. While I made a reservation for 6:00PM it wasn’t necessary. We ordered muscles and fries, both of which were excellent. The server was casual but attentive and helpful. A great start to a great evening.

Love GM! We had the Thai Curry mussels and they were amazing (we knew this, so we ordered two). We always order family style, so for 8 of us we got 4 things of mussels, a couple Brussels sprouts, a couple mac & cheese gnocchi, and 2 frites. Delish!

One of my favorite restaurants. The mussels are the best I've had anywhere, including in Belgium. The fries are crisp and the 7 or 8 sauces are delicious. I also love the old pubby atmosphere with a great selection of Belgian beers.

Enjoyed a family dinner at Granville Moore's for second time in our last three DC visits. The setting is charming old world/colonial decor. Food is fantastic, service is very good and the Beer options are always plentiful. This is in our short list rotation for future DC trips. The mussels are extraordinary!!

All you can eat mussels for $24?! CHYEAH! Only downfall was the AC kept dripping water, which I understand can’t be avoided in the heat, but it dropped into my food and wine occasionally and I was a little turned off.

Great food in a dive bar location; don't let the decor deter you. All you can eat mussels is an amazing deal; everything came out quickly, was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. Will definitely go back to try other items.

Wow, this was good! Mussels and fries are a classic, and with 5 different preparations, there was way more choice than I expected. Combine that with the attentive, friendly service, and Granville Moores is a definite winner.

This was alas minute Mother’s Day Reservation. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Decor is very rustic, but the food was great. We would go again when in the area. Oh, and they gave the Mother’s in our party a glass of complimentary champagne.

Been coming here for years, this was by far the worst service we've had...very pretentious, and somewhat rude. Food was still good...mussels great as always, burger was mediocre (cooked nearly well done, waitress didn't ask as they usually do so I guess I assumed it would be medium, I shouldn't have assumed that), fries were very good as always. Brussel sprouts appetizer was nice, had not tried that before.

I had the mussels in blue cheese, felt that the sauce was a little heavy. French fries were very seasoned. Overall, the food and ambiance were good, but there was a bit too much seasoning for my taste.

Brunch at Granville Moore’s is always delicious. I’ve tried several of their brunch menu items and have not gone wrong with any of them. Definitely order the sausage! I don’t know what’s in them, but they are amazing! Chicken and waffles - delicious; French fries - delicious; Bloody Mary - delicious; every item on the menu - delicious!

My husband and I tried this place at a friend's recommendation. We really liked the wings appetizer, as well as our beers. We thought the mussels were okay, but not as good as some other places we've been. We ordered the frites, and while they were good, they were not served with the sauces that we ordered (and they were supposed to come with). My mussels were supposed to have sausage in the sauce and there was none in the entire pot. Our waiter tried to point out the sausage to me, putting his finger close to my food (pointing out mushrooms not sausage) and poured beer all over my foot. Overall, we did not enjoy the experience and will stick with our favorite places for mussels.

Authentic Belgian atmosphere. I enjoyed the biere mussels with sausage, bread and frites. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable about beer selection. The leftover broth was packaged to go and then reinvented as a sauce for roasted squash - yum! Looking forward to another visit, maybe next Tuesday...

Food was ok. I had been here before and had loved it. This time, not so much.
My potatoes were a bit cold and coffee was terrible.
My boyfriend had a burger, and for its size, it was overly expensive, the thing was tiny.
I had great experiences here, so this may have been a random worse experience.

Great frites with very good dipping sauces (could use some more options or maybe some rotating sauce specials? Andoulouse peut-être?), locally sourced and selected mussels in simple sure-fire sauces served with perfect baguette. Best Belgian waffles I've had in the US. A straightforwardly dreamy beer menu with lots of localish Abbey-style brews. Charmingly unassuming atmosphere and kind service nails down the Belgian vibes.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Washington, DC. I've lived in the neighborhood for 8 years and still try to make it to Granville Moore's multiple times a year. It's great for having a nice long meal with drinks. You can order group bowls of mussels and catch up over some good beers! The ambiance is cozy and casual, the food is great, and the staff have always been awesome.
