St Andrews has all the charm of a neighborhood pub, serving above average food with extensive beer selections. It's bare bones decor fits the narrative. I half expected "Norm" from Cheers to walk in, the regulars greeting him by name.

Beat place for mussels. I'd pay the same price just to have the broth they come in

Went with a party of nine on a weeknight and had a great experience. Two servers took care of us and both were attentive and helpful. Get there in time for happy hour drink specials! We shared several different kinds of mussels; generous portions and delicious flavors. Fairly loud but the overall vibe was down-to-earth and laid back. Definitely will be back!

I have been to st Arnold's a few times and every time it is wonderful. The people are nice, the beer is good and the food is awesome. I went here with 16 other people to celebrate my graduation and we were treated so well. The waitress was awesome and never missed a beat. I would recommend to anyone

Can't say enough good things about St. Arnold's! It's the place to go in DC for delicious mussels! And even if you don't eat mussels, the rest of the menu is exceptional as well. It's a must-taste location!

We waited at the bar for two hours, put in our name, and never got seated despite several other parties getting seated and finishing eating before we even left.

Food was good and service quick, but hostess didn't seem to know what she was doing. The bartender (blond female) was incredible. She was so attentive and suggested excellent food items. If there was a reason to come back, it would be to hang out at the bar with her.

Good food, and great location. However, the tables are a bit small and the space is a bit tight.

Family in town for Thanksgivingg weekend, last meal before people headed home. Unusually quiet night for St. Arnold's, likely due to the holiday weekend. Mussels terrific per usual
