Great Beer
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!

I had the blue mussels and they were delicious. The service was great and very attentive.

GM is a funky, atmospheric cafe with unique beer variety, interesting cuisine but limited menu. The mussels and bread are a special treat. Casual dining in a place that can easily feel like home.

Very friendly staff. You don't have to sit at the bar to get happy hour prices for your drinks. The other person in my party is a big mussels fan, and she really enjoyed the mussels.

We went for the Monday Mussel Special. It was excellent, make reservations, they get crowded fast. The service was excellent, very attentive. The Lucifer beer was the best!!! And their frites were great! No complaints what so ever!!!

Grandville Moore's is a quaint Belgian pub with a large beer selection, including many Belgian beers. They have a good selection of domestic craft beers, too.
The gnocchi mac and cheese was excellent.
We had the traditional mussels, as well as the thai and coconut. The frites were excellent as well. We had the classic mayo dip and the curray dip, which were also quite good.

It was good. The mussels were fine. The accompanying bread was fine. The frites were just okay. The brussels sprouts with cheese had to be sent back the first time as they were hard as rocks but they came back with a new one which was fine. Also - it is grungy in that Old Europe way. You really do feel like you are on the Continent and stumbled across a hole in the wall place. Except the service was so very pleasant, helpful and attentive.

One small minor nit .. I wish the bread was a little better. It was not crusty enough .. but in the scheme of things it is a very very very minor comment.

Mussels are great! House Rose is wonderful. Just visiting DC but been here two times in a week. The bread is also fabulous, I could’ve eaten a whole loaf of that. You do need to make a reservation very few tables.

Great food. Great service. Draft beer list was disappointing. Too limited. But the facility itself was very shabby, walls, paint etc.

Yes, definitely, small quaint spot, great service. My burger was too rare so the nice waitress took it off the bill. My husband who LOVES belgium ales had a grand time... trying out new types.. The waitress was very helpful suggesting some he would like. My sons enjoyed their food and drink too. We had a great time. Would come again.

Monday’s are $12 mussel pots, so that’s really the only reason I would refer anyone to GM. The service was subpar and it’s literally a bar, blasting classic rock (which we were cool with). There’s absolutely not even one frill, so if that’s your jam, this is your place. I think GM would be ideal if you were out for the night, drinking, and dropped in for another beer and food.

I haven’t been here in years. Good food but quirky customer service as I remember. It’s great if you like traditional DC customer service that you might remember from the 1990s or early 2000s; otherwise, don’t expect too much or you’ll be disappointed.

I love this place and always try to find time to swing by when I am in town. Food is usually outstanding from mussels to burgers. This past time, however, was disappointing. Fries were mostly soggy and my broth was tepid. For what I paid and usually expect from this placve, wasn't quite up to par.

The service wasn't as good this time. It was Mother's Day and they only had 3 servers on for 2 floors. I received the wrong order which wasn't brought out until we were almost finishing eating. I asked for it to be boxed to be told it is against the law in DC to take shell fish out the restaurant. I go to mostly seafood restaurants and never had this issue arise.

It was a bad idea to come here for Mother's Day. Years ago, my wife fell in love with the mussels here so I figured we'd return. The place was far to nonchalant for my liking of a holiday brunch, but that part was my fault for picking a grungy place for brunch. But still, the food was mediocre and the service was poor. They weren't that busy and it took us an hour to get our food. My wife's waffle was burnt. The only good thing I can say is that mussels were still good.

We had a group of 6 for Easter brunch and were thrilled by our experience. Everything was prepared to perfection. We each ordered a different dish and the timing was perfection. Go for the mussels for sure! Go for everything on the menu!

Kind of a hide-away on H between 11th and 12th. Small with 2 stories and in a very old building. If you like a European pub like feel, this is the place. If you are a germophobe, you might feel uncomfortable. Our table was a little sticky and quite wobbly. Mussels were great and the beer selection is impressive. Our waitress was experienced and didn't write anything down, but our order was delivered to us without flaw. Nothing exceptional, given all of the great choices in DC, but it was fine. They have a loyal following as the place filled up quite quickly.

Still one of the best restaurants in DC. Amazing food, their special menu for the Cherry Blossom festival is awesome! Do NOT skip on the ribs, they are To Die For!! Also, all the special cherry beers and the flight are worth sampling, but honestly to crank one superior food across the board while providing excellent front of the house service (Jason is a rock star!) is why I keep and will keep coming back to GM's so long as their doors stay open.

The lack of parking in the neighborhood is the ONLY reason I have for a less than stellar review. Call me old-fashioned, but I drove there. And then I circled multiple blocks for 30 minutes until something opened up. Many side streets are for residents only, and H Street itself is wonderfully busy. The result is that parking is abysmal.

If you go, and I recommend you do, use ride-sharing or public transportation.

Had brunch here with friends. We enjoyed a couple pitchers of mimosas and the hash is always a winner. The waffles didn't really do it for me though--they were on the dense side, but that's a personal preference thing. A great place for a small group in a genuinely quirky atmosphere.

From the outside, this place can be extremely intimidating, but once you walk through the door and try the food, you’ll find it worth the trip. This is a dark, moody mussel and frites bar. I haven’t tried much else, but this is what people come here for. The sauces and broths are fantastic. They have specials on certain days and we happened to go on all-you-can-eat night. We definitely got our money’s worth. Oh yeah, there’s also the extensive beer menu!
