    Initially we were seated outside the restaurant in a generic atrium area. It wasn’t the full OEG experience we wanted to treat our kids to since we were visiting from out of state. We asked if we could be moved back in to the restaurant and they kindly accommodated our request. We had a great dinner.

    We went before a show at the National Theatre. Place was packed at 5:30 on a Saturday but we were seated right away. Service was top notch. Waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. We weren’t rushed but were able to make the show. Had Crab cake, lobster roll, shrimp pasta and Caesar salad- all of which were delicious! Will definitely go back!!

    Wow! We had an amazing dinner! The atmosphere was vibrant-complimenting the history and melting pot of antiques and memorabilia … Sadie was our server and she was exceptional! Knowledgeable, very personable and witty! We put our dining experience in her hands and we were not disappointed! For example, she decided on the oysters my husband would eat asking us to trust her choices… She went into detail about the locations of the oysters and their characteristics! On point! She also asked our table if anyone had allergies because they take food allergies and the concerns of their patrons very seriously! We loved the clam chowder and the Kir Royale was delicious!! Overall we had a great dining experience and everyone should try Ebbitts at least once in their lifetime..
