Adrian, our waitress was phenomenal. We always love Old Ebbits but having a great waiter makes it even better.

Vacationing in DC and had looked forward to returning to Old Ebbitt Grill. Previously had dinner at the bar rail before and loved it so made a reservation several weeks in advance and looked forward to a nice meal on our return to DC. We were not seated in the restaurant but rather some extended space they’ve created next door. Very disappointed especially when I noticed several open tables in the restaurant as we walked through to our table. Waitress was adequate but not very attentive at all. Enjoyed my meal (pork chop) but my husband and son were not really impressed with the burger and salmon that they ordered. Sad that our 2nd time here was such a let down.

The service was impeccable, not even factoring in and expected limit to service due to covid, that you expect pretty much everywhere. All the food was fantastic.

The chicken and waffles were a let down. The chicken wings do not pair well with waffles and provides little to no meat and tasteless breading. They don’t serve corned beef hash anymore which was my husbands favorite! We have always loved going here but probably won’t be back.

It’s been about 30 years since I visited this place, I moved out of town once I graduated long ago so I thought I’d give it a shot again … it was everything I remembered, classic DC experience, fun, great food and reasonably price entrees. Long live Old Ebbit grill!!

The food was absolutely delicious! The shrimp cake was kinda salty but the rest was awesome. It was my first time at Washington Dc and this place came up first when I searched restaurant and I loved it I will definitely recommend this place! We came at 4:30 just in time for happy hour and the oysters were delicious!

Took my high school son and got seated in the back room with families with unruly kids. Strike one. Ordered the swordfish and it arrived seriously undercooked. Strike two. The food, once properly cooked, was good. The waiter made no adjustment to the bill to account for uncooked food. Strike three. I’ve been here before a few times and had good experiences but not this time.
