    As usual, Old Ebbitt Grill doesn't disappoint. We had oysters and the biggest shrimp cocktail we had ever seen. The cocktails were generous and delicious. And our sandwiches were great. Our server was very good. She was really efficient but not as chatty as some of the other servers we have had. However, a great experience overall.

    Overall, we had a lovely dinner. That said, we had made reservations for 5:00 p.m. and were not seated until 5:25. Advised to go to the bar until table was ready which was not ideal for us. Given that we had theater tickets, it was a bit angst provoking that we had to eat/drink more quickly than we would have liked.

    Very busy restaurant with a friendly and fast moving reception area. The food was tasty (steak fires and roast turkey sandwich) and delicious. I was thankful they held my reservation while I drove around to find a parking space.

    Must visit historic restaurant while in DC! Make a reservation as this place is BUSY! You might be able to get a spot at one of the bars if you’re lucky. Food, drinks and staff were all pleasant. The hostesses, however, need to smile, and be nice and inviting!

    Food was cold, service was poor. Definitely relying on location and old reputation.

    We had a reservation for 4 people at 7 PM on a Friday night. We arrived at 6:50 and checked in and were seated within a few minutes. 2 in our party ordered the house salad and 2 others ordered the Clam Chowder. Everyone was happy with their soup or salad. For our entrees, we ordered Asparagus Campanelle, Scallops, Crab Cakes, and the Ribeye. Everyone was happy with their order. My spouse and I have been there a few times and I regularly get the Crab Cakes. My only comment would be that the fries could be better. They were a bit soggy. For dessert, we ordered the Bread Pudding and the Brownie Sundae to share. Both were good as well. Our server (Kitty) was very good and I would sit in her station again. The only negative about the restaurant is that it does get rather loud so it can be challenging to have a conversation. But that is the price you pay to go to a popular (and historic) restaurant steps away from the White House. On my future travels to Washington D.C., I will continue to visit Old Ebbitt Grill. Start with a drink at the always busy bar and then move over to the restaurant for a good meal.
