Was not busy for brunch at 10:30 on Sunday. Good coffee, limited choices for breakfast for child. Eggs Benedict was ok, hollandaise sauce was so-so, May have been packaged?!? breaks bar drinks were very good (Bellini and Bloody Mary (spicy hot).

The food was good but a little over priced. $20 for a turkey burger and fries is a bit much!

Service was a little underwhelming. I made a reservation a few days prior and the hostess was about to seat us literally next to the front door on a 43 degree night lol.. I asked if there was any other tables available, as to avoid the burst of cold air everytime someone walked through.. she then walked us all the way to the back literally next to the dish pit. I mean we had to stop our conversation ...every..time.. someone came back to drop dishes because it was that loud. It was incredibly annoying. Our server was okay. Not very impressionable.
I had the seared ahi tuna sandwich which was not very flavorful..

Pub like restaurant. Great burgers. Cooked exactly as we asked. But since we are from the north we forgot to mention we don’t like mayo on our burgers which seems to be the norm below Delaware. But the staff promptly replaced our buns. Good menu for drinks and apps. Great value. Would go again if we were in dc area.

Nice spot for burgers. Smaller bar, but acceptable drink menu. Abbreviated brunch menu and 5ish non-burger entrees. Seating is a good mix of high tops, tables, and booths and private area on the back for large groups. Gas fireplace for ambiance and TV's behind the bar. Good service, food comes out quick. Really small door to get in, not super accessible... Still, worth the stop.

My family of five including young adults dined at Thunder Burger during our stay in Georgetown. We were not disappointed. The beer selection was excellent. The food was very good with a variety for different tastes. The service was excellent and we loved how cool the space looked. We will be making Thunder Burger a regular stop on our annual DC holiday trips from now on.

The burgers her are amazing. Tried the kobe beef burger and the bison burger, both are really good and cooked to perfection. The fries are also great. Key lime pie and the chocolate sundae for dessert were good too. I would go there again for the burgers, one of the best in town.

The burgers were good. The fries and salad were also good. The prices are high for what you get.
I wouldn't NOT recommend...but our family probably won't go again.
On the upside, the service is great, as is the ambiance.

Great selection of burgers--tasty, sizable, juicy. The fries also great. The restaurant is made up of a number of small, cramped rooms. My very tall son had trouble walking through some of them due to the ceiling height. Somewhat noisy. I did think that the prices were a bit high for the amount of food--$25/person for a burger and fries each, but that's Georgetown for you.

Nice Georgetown ambience. We sat next to an open window at the front of the restaurant and it was very pleasant. The service was excellent. The house remoulade was very tasty. The not so good part was our burgers. Both our burgers were undercooked and greasy. They say all burgers are cooked to a pink center but ours were served rare. Too bad since everything else was so nice.
