Old Ebbitt Grill
Book your next event with us
The short ribs with polenta was delicious!
We were a group who came from all over the country to spend time together and we were seated in the atrium...essentially outside of the restaurant. As amazing as the ambiance is inside the physical restaurant, we felt shorted by our experience. Certainly not the Old Ebbitt we were hoping for.
Fantastic dinner. Excellent service. Great martini See you next time. Always great dining experience.
I love to bring business colleagues to Old Ebbitt! Atmosphere is great, as is the food. It is a favorite!!!
Always a great spot for dinner!!!
A bit noisy in the booths but otherwise great for any occasion.
This was such a fun atmosphere! I told my husband that it was like a Top of the line pub in London😊
It was my husband’s birthday we had a wonderful time with family and friends
I love the historic feeling in this restaurant. I always go for the oysters and seafood but this time I had a steak and did not regret it.
The music in the oyster bar was far too loud. Conversations could not be heard. Unusual for such a great place.
1st time in DC with the family!!!
Oyster pretty good
It was wonderful!
Good menu and tasty oysters but add lobster rolls on the menu
First time visiting this place and it was absolutely phenomenal! The atmosphere, staff, AND food was wonderful! If ever visiting DC again, definitely would recommend. Especially for a special event like a date night, birthday, anniversary, etc.
The food need more seasoning ! We love the restaurant and will return
Thomas is so attentive
Very fun evening
We celebrated our 19 year wedding anniversary there while visiting from California. We will be back the next time we're in town.
Absolutely loved the food. Great oysters and salmon.
Always a good place to go in DC.
Outstanding service and delectable food. The gas lights and architecture details add to ambiance. Overall, a fantastic dining experience.
OEG's salmon is normally very good. The salmon on lentils is probably not their best combination.
Was visiting DC for a 2 day trip and was so glad we decided on returning to Old Ebbitt Grill. It has been a couple of years since we were there and were happy to find it was just as good. The scallops were delicious, as well as the cannelloni and burger. We shared a piece of peanut-butter cake for dessert also delish. The service was great the waitress was very attentive and made great suggestions. Will definitely return on out next trip to the area.
The fillet was decent but I’ve had better, more tender elsewhere. My broccolini had wayyyy too much garlic in it! The potato cake was good. The oyster on the half shell was fresh and good. Martini was great.
I took some new friends I met at a conference for seafood. This place made me the food hero of the conference! Outstanding seafood and great service. Met a senator! Definitely worth a stop when you’re in DC.
Fun and interesting atmosphere for lunch or dinner. My wife and I enjoyed dinner a few nights ago - we had a wonderful dinner and a great time!
Being seated in the back section in the mall area is about as charming as a cafeteria
This is one of my absolute favorite places in DC for Breakfast, lunch, dinner to any occasion in fact. The restaurant itself is just cozy and olde worlde in some ways. You find yourself wondering about all the famous people who went through these doors and ate here before you. It has a nice ambiance about it! After that, it comes down to the food and the staff. The menus a great and the portions are perfect when you go hungry (and you should go hungry). I find it hard to take myself away from the panfried crusted Trout. I love fish and its the closest to fresh fish I've gotten around DC. Always tastes great, is a huge portion of fish (which I love) and very little potatoes (which is healthier). It also comes with green beans which I find really tasty. On initial view, you might think they're a little stingy with the potatoes and green beans but the fish is so good you are full from it alone so end up with enough of everything. My colleague (work meeting) had a scampi dish which he loved. We both ordered dessert, he got a HUGE piece of key lime Pie - i went for the creme brulee expecting the usual tiny portion you get (which is never enough) and was thrilled that it was a really big one - I ate every scrap of it! Delicious. We both had 2 beers and cappuccinos and the bill came to $98 I believe (he paid!)., Great food, very fast service. We sat in the front Mallard section which I love. Ask for a booth - makes it more enjoyable than a boring table! Great experience, highly recommend - eat cheap everywhere else but pay a little extra for great food and experience here. It's a DC must!!
A historic place to bring a friend when visiting. we had an excellent lunch. Turkey sandwiches have that special Old Ebbits touch. Excellent staff and service.
Good place, but over-hyped. It's really more popular because of the history more than the food. The food was decent but not the best I ever had. Prices are a little steep as well.
We had a very nice experience here. We usually avoid Old Ebbitt Grill if its too crowded, but it was surprisingly not on this early Sunday in January. Our waitress really made the whole meal great, though. Squeezing in our raw oyster order to get us the 1/2 price special before 6 pm. Then recommending really good changes to our swordfish entree and splitting all our meals for us. All of the food was yummy and beautifully prepared. We highly recommend it if you can get a table!
Great time. Mostly a high end seafood menu at good prices.
Good service, good food.
We went there for my daughter's birthday celebration and had a great time. Great menus and for happy hour we got oysters and crab legs half off. The staff is excellent, so knowledgeble and attentive, made my daughter feel great for her special day.
Took my wife and daughter to Sunday brunch while visiting DC. We were seated immediately. The service and food were both exceptional and I will make Old Ebbitt Grill a regular stop on future visits
Great place for a meal if you are in DC and plan to be near the White House. Historically known for oysters and maintains a very good reputation. However, don't overlook other menu options, as food is very good and reasonably priced for the quality.
Great Sunday brunch!! Nice menu and excellent service! Never felt rushed at all.
Great atmosphere and food
My family was in town for my mother's burial at Arlington National Cemetery. My husband and I have been here several times, and we absolutely love it. The food, service, and ambiance are fantastic. On this particular day, about 10 people were in town, and before we left the hotel, 4 more people arrived. Old Ebbitt Grill was happy to accommodate 4 additional people and would have been glad to add even more due to the government shutdown. The restaurant did a great job serving a large group, the food was delicious, the servers were attentive, and the family was able to enjoy a good time together. Old Ebbitt Grill never disappoints! Thanks!
