Service was not nearly as good as usual. The food was fine, but, not exceptional. We have had wonderful meals there in the past. Hopefully, that was just a bad night and not a turn for the worse for the restaurant. We do not intend to return anytime soon, so we will not know.

I've been here a few times and always enjoyed eating here.
Steaks are good and reasonably priced for a city restaurant.
Ordered the Bourbon Stout, which was off a bit this time (Too sour), but they gladly switched it out for another selection.
Only downside is that I felt a bit rushed with the timing of the food, but I will be back.

District Chophouse is one of my favorite spots to eat in DC. The cornbread and chicken tenderloins with a good larger and a glass wine kicked off the evening. I had the Rib-Eye steak with rice pilaf. It was delivered hot from the grill and I just dived in. The steak melted in my mouth. I had creme burlee for dessert. The custard and fresh fruit topping was just the right countdown for the meal. Portion size is always big. Wonderful pleasant place, business casual dress, the kitchen definitely never fail to meet my expectations. The stuff is so gracious. I was contacted about 4-5 times during the meal and asked if I needed any service. Please also try the Honey Chicken sandwich for lunch.

Ribeye was dry and tough. Sides were fine but nothing great. Not worth the money. This is mostly a tourist trap for folks too tired to find a better restaurant.

The corn bread was AMAZING!!! the steak was a little over cooked, we ordered medium rare but would consider it medium, but still had great taste. The crab cake and the asparagus did not disappoint either!

District Chophouse is one of my favorite restaurants in DC, and I especially enjoyed my last visit during restaurant week. It's hard to beat the price for a good steak and the location in heart of DC. Plus, if you need to kill time, the bar and pool tables upstairs are always around for a good time.

Overall great experience! Everything I had was great! The mussels for the appetizer were sooo good! The cornbread was tasty and a nice surprise. My husband and I both got the New York strip which was great. I got the mashed potatoes and he got the fries. The fries were really seasoned and a little salty otherwise they were delicious. Can’t wait to go back!

Service was good and the waitress was very friendly and attentive. Food was mediocre. Ordered the calamari as an appetizer and the pieces were very small and chewy with a taste like they were reheated. Not sure if the calamari was old or overdone. We got it replaced with a shrimp dish and that dish was very good. I order a burger cooked medium but it came out well done, fries were good. My wife's pork chop was underwhelming. I think the food was middle of the road but for the price it should have been way better. I think in the future I will only come for the beer.

Service was slow on the front end,bar, and kitchen. Prime rib was salty, plating had too much sauce. It was a brewery trying to be a steakhouse with Appleby’s service. I would not recommend. I only went there to complete a dining experience for bonus air miles with United Premier Club.

The food was subpar for what a steakhouse is and what the prices were. All the baked portatoes that we ordered were undercooked. Made it very hard to eat it. My uncle steak was undercooked and set it back. He was not happy about the dining. The manager did a great job of fixing the problem. My steak was cooked a little over.

Cornbread was amazing

Bone-in ribeye was decent, didn’t blow me away.

Chicken Picatta, very lemony, could of used some garlic.

Asparagus was okay, green beams cooked perfect.

Bourbon Stout was okay, like it a bit boozier.

Ambiance is nice and food was good, not great. Service was a bit off with poor timing and absent mindeness. Did not take drink orders until we asked. Initially brought wrong wine to the table. Brought out entrees fast while appetizers were still being enjoyed. Never asked about desserts or coffee after dinner. Short Ribs were very good.

We enjoyed the dinner we had here one night on our recent trip to D.C. I got the bacon cheeseburger and it was excellent. The service was also great and they have a nice selection of beers (many of which they make themselves!). The atmosphere was good too...a bit noisy but fun. All in all a great place to eat when visiting Washington.

We had a wonderful experience at District Chophouse! We were seated quickly and our waiter quickly came to take care of us. One of the most impressive things was how he had our daughter's food brought out before ours without us asking. She is a slow eater and gets bored waiting for us, so this was a pleasant surprise. Our steaks were fantastic and my husband greatly enjoyed his flight of tasting beers. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
