Randal made my birthday lunch one of the best restaurant experiences that I've had in the DC metro area in 12 years. He served my friend and I with excellent service and a smile. He sang happy birthday to me and I turned red and laughed with joy. The food was delicious. This was my second time at Teddy's and I loved it! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

I meet an old friend for lunch and was so glad that we chose Teddy’s.

We enjoyed the food and great customer service while catching up on eleven years.

We agreed to meet at Teddy’s again soon.
Thank you.

Great menu - Great staff - Very accomodating. Its a noisy, hectic lunch spot and the majority of seating is very close together. Don't plan on too much privacy or business conversation unless you call ahead.

Thid place is good for informal lunch. Menu is pub-like. Service very friendly and good. Tables are well spaced apart which is unusual and a plus for conversation

Food tasted great , however main courses came out very quickly after appetizers. Tables were small so not enough room for the food.

Really fun and delicious New Years Eve set menu. Decorations were festive and food was fantastic. Expensive but worth it. We had the $70 prix fix menu, although others seemed to be able to order off menu. We went pretty early, but i bet it was rocking later because a DJ was setting up.

While we enjoyed our meal Teddy and The Bully Bar our expectations were not met. Both the website describing the Christmas meal and the confirmation I received explicitly said Prime Rib would be on the carving station. However when we arrived it was not. This was very disappointing as we love to celebrate Christmas with Prime Rib. We were seated in the front room which was not very festive and would have preferred the back room. That said the food that was served was very good.

Unfortunately service was terrible; order was wrong, bill was wrong and food came cold and at different times; I had finished before my friends had been served.

The manager was extremely helpful in sorting out the bill, but overall it was not the experience I would want anyone else to have.

This is a great spot for lunch. I had the salmon with orzo entrée. It was small for an entrée but was well prepared. fMy sister liked the salad with shrimp. The service was excellent. Patrick is one of the best servers I’ve had in DC. Would definitely go back.

The history of TR in DC before he became president is very interesting, and this place does a great job of providing ambience. It is easy to imagine this bar as a place Teddy would enjoy. The decor pays homage without being obsequious. The house across the street, where he lived, serves as an anchor.

The food was good. The best dish? Crispy brussels sprouts!

Thanksgiving Dinner

I understand holiday events such as Thanksgiving Buffet are difficult to provide, our family was underwhelmed. The staff were friendly and provided us seating at our reserved time but there was little attention and spoons were missed, exchanging bent forks was problematic, and anything special was difficult. The variety was good with turkey, beef, and salmon meats and several vegetables yet they and the soups were warm at best. I rated this location noisy yet it was a full holiday crowd so that is to be expected. I don't like providing negative reviews nor do I think our expectations were too high as we have paid less for an even larger and more delicious ensemble of treats, but this holiday meal was not one we would try again.

My family and I went to Teddy's for their Thanksgiving buffet. For a buffet, the food was very good with a few less than terrific dishes, like their turkey dressing. However, the variety was great with turkey, salmon and roast beef entrees and a broad selection of sides. Unfortunately the pumpkin pie was not so good, a big disappointment for me. The service was friendly but a bit slow.

The best brunch in the city! Everything on the menu is delicious. They do slight variations on some of the dishes according to the season.
