We’re a diverse team of makers — baristas, bartenders, chefs, mixologists, roasters, distillers and brewers — who came together to create a neighborhood place we all need.
It’s a place that brings people together morning, noon and night. A place with crazy delicious food and destination drinks. A place to grab a crave-worthy bite on the fly or to hang awhile with a book and coffee. A place to brunch with your besties or happy hour with your work crew. A place to roll solo with your laptop or roll deep with your family and friends.
It’s a place for you. It’s a place for us. It’s a pub for the people.

We ate at this restaurant in the evening on Fathers' Day. We loved it and will go back. The food was really delicious and was served hot and fresh. However, the experience was not entirely smooth. This seemed to be an issue of understaffing, as well as some technical glitches with their ordering process. In spite of having an excellent server, my husband's drink order was not filled, and after 30 minutes of waiting, we finally had to ask for it. The food came fairly promptly, and as mentioned, the food was exceptional. Things became complicated again when I ordered a dessert to go as part of my fixed price meal. The dessert did not come. We had to ask for it 3 times over the course of about 40 minutes. Then the wrong dessert was delivered to us and also to another table nearby. We finally told the manager to just package up any dessert for us because we needed to leave. They did ultimately give us what we ordered (and an extra dessert for our trouble), but it left us with a mixed impression of a restaurant that otherwise was excellent. I am confident that they can fix these things.

We went for Sunday brunch and selected the bottomless brunch and mimosa options. Great value for the amount of food. Most of our food came out hot. We loved our waiter, Tony. He was friendly, efficient, and helpful.

Food was delicious and we were seated quickly and service was good. Had the Chicken and Waffles, Brussel sprouts and French toast, all good. Wings were delicious too. Pricing was good and we had a great Father's Day Brunch meal.

The kids meals were all great. My entree was unfortunately over salted, like they went to add a dash and the top came off in mid-shake.

Lovely atmosphere. We felt safe and comfortable due to table placement and staff wearing masks. Parking and validation procedures are quite confusing. Otherwise, very enjoyable!

I always have fun at Makers. Solid drink menu with good apps. The chicken and waffles was good but the chicken needed some type of drizzle to spice up the taste.

This restaurant was very disappointing. We’d been planning to try it for a while and were excited when we walked in, but the food was horrible. We’re not very picky, but nothing we ordered tasted good. Certainly over priced for the quality - would not recommend and will unfortunately not be going back.

Great neighborhood restaurant. This is our 2nd time eating here. Both times the food and service were great. This time we had the tortilla soup, lobster salad, crispy brussel sprouts, and Moroccan Style Impossible Kebabs. Everything was delicious! Makers Union is our new favorite neighborhood restaurant and we'll be dining here again. Cheers!

Food was very good.,lots of lobster on our sandwiches except very dry. Hot butter on the side would have made our meals 5 stars. And thank you for not only having gluten free bread but also toasting it to perfection.

Loved the fries and food, but some things were bad. For example, they gave us tap water when we ordered waters for our table. They also kept us waiting for one hour before asking us to order food.

My girlfriends and I had a great time at brunch at Makers Union. As always, the food and beverage was incredible. The family style brunch was a great value, and everything was fresh, tasty, and exactly what we ordered! It was a tad busy, and at points our server was not the most pleasant. But during other visits our service was incredible. Maybe she was just having an off day. This won't deter me from coming back! Absolutely love the food.

Great ambiance; noisy but we could hear each other. Food and service excellent. Strawberry shortcake outstanding. Makers Union is in a very busy part of Reston which was really jumping on a Saturday night0--a bit much for us old fogies
