Great place, food was awesome the beer was even better. Nats game reservation recommended got seated right away.
Great waitress. Interesting craft beers. Will be back
We loved the atmosphere. It was a bit loud inside, but still fun. We recommend getting flights of beer. All very unique, but none that any of us wanted a full pint of. We tried about 8 beers, and we are all into the beer scene and 2 of us are home brewers. The food was good. Portion sizes were appropriate. It would have been nice to see some lightly fare on the menu, but for those looking for some hearty food to go with their beer - this is the place! Honestly, we probably won't go back. If you're in the neighborhood and want to try some fun beers and sit outside with friends, I'd recommend it for that in a heart beat.
Waited for initial waiter too long, menu lacking on offerings, prices too high for what you get
Food was ok. Service was poor. We waited at least 20 minutes before our food order was taken. Other tables around us who were seated after us were able to order, get their food and pay even before we got our food. Once the food came out, no one asked us if we needed anything, no soda refills, no follow up for ketchup. We had to chase our server to get refills we never got and to even pay the bill. Quite disappointed.
After the recommendation to put Arsenal/Bluejacket on our must-go-to list for a DC trip, we got a reservation as soon as we could. Upon our arrival, we were taken care of immediately - everyone we interacted with was helpful and kind, the beers and food were absolutely incredible, and the atmosphere was stunning. I only wish I lived closer to DC so I could make it a regular spot! I can't wait to make another trip here, hopefully soon.
Always outstanding! Great food, beer, and incredible service! Thanks!
The outside grill on Saturday for lunch was great! Service was very slow.
Nice location & design but server was not attentive & wasn't interested in offering food suggestions since we weren't ordering beer.
The beer selection and accompanying decor is great for any craft beer lover. It offers a good choice in location to Nats Park as well. The food was good, though not much selection and tiny portions, especially for the price. The service is slow and inattentive.
When our party of six arrived, we were seated quickly. We ordered drinks and a few appetizers. When we tried to order lunch, we were told we had the wrong menus (apparently, the hostess gave us the wrong menu). We were excited to order from the lunch menu, but after we received the correct menu (it was called in between menu), we realized there were only a couple of entrees. No one in our party was interested in the new menu, so we asked for the check and left. I was very disappointed because our party had been looking forward to eating at this restaurant for a few weeks. We had to close out the check (which ended up being vey expensive for just drinks and appetizers) and move on to another restaurant.
As always, everything was perfect! Thanks as always!
Great beer and food! Atmosphere was fun but a little loud. Would definitely go back!
I had high hopes for the place. From the outside the place is hopping.
The online menu looked great. Unfortunately, that menu was out of date. The food was okay at best. I ordered a salmon, cream cheese, onions, bagel sandwich. My wife ordered their "double" burger. My bagel hit the table and, to my chagrin, the smoked salmon was nothing more than a small smattering of cut-up salmon bits mixed into the cream cheese. The bagel was supposed to be a pretzel bagel. If it was it was the funkiest pretzel I've ever encountered. The hamburger was an outright disappointment. The double patties were nothing more than two skanky, gray colored patties that looked an awful lot like those bulk frozen burgers sold in the grocery store.
The beer on the other hand was good. They brew all of it on the premises. What we tried was very good. Finally, our server was poor. For most of our meal we had no drinks - they were empty. We needed napkins - couldn't find her. No salt or pepper on the table - could't find her. When we wanted to leave we couldn't find her for the check.
Beer, location and setup was excellent. Food and service was just OK
Thanks as always! Incredible place to be, incredible service, and incredible food!
What better way to cap off a day at the DC Beer Festival than with some snacks and beer at Bluejacket. Reservations were required and the staff was very good at managing the crowd. Food and beer was excellent as always with a shout out to the ever rotating and evolving beer menu.
Had some great beef and some really great appetizers.
Loved the beer and burger, brat was kind if weak I must say.
The beer was fantastic but the food only met expectations. Not overly expensive, but not cheap either.
The food is fantastic and the beer selection is always amazing, since they brew on premises. The selection of IPAs in the spring is something that has to be experienced, and if you can get a flight of them, it's worth it.
Loved the place; took one of my employees here for his 5 year anniversary with the company. Service was awesome and I was very impressed with the servers knowledge of both the food and beer. I will be back!
The food isn't bad by any stretch, but for me where this place shines is at the bar. They have some awesome beers, and solid upscale bar food. When I'm there for that I'm never disappointed. The few times I've gone for dinner it's more or less meh.
Great space with interesting beers and average pub like food (including good fries). The beers weren't my favorite, but the small sampler size allows you to try a few options and others in our party enjoyed them. Definitely not a highlight of the area but a good place for a bigger group or a stop before a baseball game.
Our waiter was really bad - he seemed generally annoyed and he messed up our drink orders twice - probably the end of a longer shift.
Great food and everything else but would be much better if prices/portions matched up more.
Superb food, beer, and Staff! A real neighborhood gem! Best Brew-Pub in SE!
This is a very noisy young crowd with above average bar food at an elevated price. Appetizers probably better than entries. Good selection of above average micro brew beers, brewed on site. Very difficult to carry on a conversation.
The beers were very good. The food didn't live up to its potential. The oysters were pretty disappointing - not sure what variety they were, they didn't have sweet, brine or crispness to them. The hush puppies looked good but were pretty dry and not well seasoned. The Wurst Sandwich in DC was decent, but had the potential to be awesome and it just didn't live up to its promise. Overall, we felt the food was overpriced for what it was.
This is a great place to have some beer, get a sandwich and enjoy the company of friends. It's not a foodie hotspot.
The restaurant is in a very cool, resorted building. The service was very friendly and prompt and the food was quite good.
Bluejacket changes its menu and beer selection quite frequently. It is worth multiple repeat visits.
Amazing little brewery. The wait staff was great. Very knowledgable of the beer. The hostess was rude, and had no manners.
Bluejacket/Arsenal is a fun place for good food and great beer. They brew their own beers and all of the ones I tasted were excellent. Prices are reasonable. You can expect to pay $6 or $7 for a full pour or about $3 for a tasting glass. Totally worth it! There is a big bar area for big crowds, but we were warned that it does get very crowded after Nats games. Can't wait to go back and try more of their food and beers!
Always a good idea
I met a colleague for lunch. The wait time for everything was very long. I understand it's a growing busy area of DC but if you can't handle a lunch rush on a Thursday how will you handle a lunch rush and baseball game crowd.
We have been to Bluejacket a few times and have loved it every time. The beer is excellent and I have not ordered anything I didn't like!
Food was served in small portions but had a fat price tag, my fried chickpeas were stone cold. Lively atmosphere, very dimly lit. Beer was excellent, waiter - Carol - was very helpful in assisting with beer recommendations.
Went twice in the last week, both times not disappointed. Tried a bunch of their beers, wasn't in love with those to be honest. Good, but not really my cup of tea (I like beer, but these were a little too out there for my taste). But the Mambo Fried Chicken Sandwich was OUT OF THIS WORLD good. Seriously, try it.
By 8pm they had ran out of many of the seafood items because they are supplied locally.
This was my first time going and it was a pretty good experience. Although the food was good, it was a bit on the greasy side. Our hostess/waitress was great! They do need maybe a bit more variety on the food.
Bluejacket is a great spot for dinner, especially if you have guests in town or want to impress friends or a date with the ambiance. The exposed industrial look of the brewery makes for a very cool atmosphere, and the beer is fantastic! The entrees are quite expensive, but you can get out of there for a little less money if you order a few of the incredible appetizers and stick to a sandwich or a salad.
