Welcome to Mission Navy Yard, a lively bar and restaurant located adjacent to Nationals Park and Audi Field. Known for our vibrant bar scene, daily happy hour, spacious private event and outdoor spaces and delicious Tex-Mex food, we opened in July 2018. Our sister restaurant, Mission Dupont Circle, has been serving strong margaritas and tasty tacos since 2014.

We refuse to believe that a restaurant only has one purpose: we aim to provide a bustling bar scene, comfortable dining and versatile private event spaces that can accommodate groups of all sizes. Our spaces are created to be welcoming for brunch, happy hour, dinner and private events, as well as those looking to rewind in a vibrant weekend late night atmosphere.

    Food was good but the bar was so packed and the music so loud for 6pm. It was very difficult to navigate all the way from the front to where our table was located. Not a great experience- would never go back.

    Looked for a place to get a quick bite before theater performance. The margarita was okay. The volume was very loud with sensory overload that I don't desire to experience again. Probably more appealing to a younger demographic.

    Mission Navy Yard was fantastic! We enjoyed the bottomless margaritas, waffle fries, breakfast burrito, and quesadilla. All delicious but the fries were the best! Our server was attentive and made my husbands birthday special with churros and a candle. We will definitely be back!

    The food was fabulous! My only complaint was that it was way too loud and I was seated in an area where the servers had to carry trays over my head. People kept squeezing past us and it was just an uncomfortable spot. The service and food were fab though, I'd definitely go again but ask to be seated somewhere different.

    The vibes was sports bar personally not a vibe for me. Food was delicious they did over do the chicken on top of the waffle fries it was more chicken than fries. The breakfast quesadilla was delicious 10/10. The water was not the best the staff looked like they rolled out of bed and came to work ewww. The margarita was horrible the mimosas was good although they did not let us take some to go was for sure upset about that! Personally not returning!

    Depending on when you go (eg Saturday afternoons) this is a club, not a restaurant. Perhaps it was due to a baseball game at the same time, but the DJ/music on second floor was club style and excruciatingly loud. Understaffed for balcony reservations, so service was intermittent and slow. If you sat outside, at the first floor picnic tables, it might have been tolerable. We won’t be back tbh because it’s unclear when it’s a restaurant and when it’s clubbing time.

    The brunch was SO good. We’re (newly) locals and have decided this is the best place to go for food and bottomless brunch!! We had someone gluten free in our group and the menu caters to that. Also, very close to Nats park!

    Staff and food were amazing! Only negative was that it was very busy and we were waiting on our desserts and managers kept coming over to ask how everything was and if there was anything else we need. It was done in a very we need this table vibe and as if we were holding it up when it was us just waiting for the desserts we ordered. Look forward to going back!

    Have been to Mission several times, but I guess this was the first Saturday. The noise level was HORRIBLE. It was more like a club level than a restaurant - but at 6:00 p.m.! It was nearly impossible to carry on a conversation with my dinner companions. The food was good and our service was fine. I've always enjoyed Mission on previous visits, but it's never been anywhere near this loud. Guess I'll have to remember to go somewhere else on a Saturday.

    It was a game day so some allowances are necessary. With that said, we had to witness an awkward engagement with another guest (who sat themselves at our reserved table supposedly per another employee’s direction). It took forever to get our server’s attention. The food and drinks were pretty eh.

    We made a reservation for 10 for brunch after confirming over the phone that they were serving brunch on the 4th. When we arrived we were told that we would have to order at the bar, which proceeded to take over an hour. There was one bartender for maybe 100 people in the back half of the restaurant. Half of us never received our drinks and it was so loud I couldn't hear the person sitting 18 inches away from me. We ate as quickly as humanly possible and left.

    Brunch was good. Had a reservation. Seated immediately but waited 10-15 minutes for someone to come by after that. Place wasn’t close to full, so that was a rough start to what ended up being a good meal.

    The food was decent, but a little dry for the burritos. They brought out the wrong food initially, but corrected it. The service wasn’t great. Our food came fast, but in the wrong order, we waited for water refills until the end of our meal and waited for the check for a while after finishing our meals.
