Host was prompt in seating us for our 7:30 reservation. Unfortunately, we then sat at our table for 20 minutes being ignored by everyone until I finally asked a server in our area if she was our server. She politely said no, and asked if I wanted me to get them. I asked if she could as we had been waiting for awhile and no one had even been over yet. Once she went and found him, the rest of the meal was uneventful, he was fairly prompt. I don’t know if the host just didn’t tell him that he had seated us where he had. Food was good but not great. Just middle of the bar.

Very Reliable Option in Georgetown

Went before a movie for a cheapish meal in Georgetown that is fairly hard to find. Good burgers, a lot of options and customization. Burgers were made to order and the fries (sweet potato) were very good. Drinks were pretty good as well. Service was good, too. Big space that can handle crowds. A good option in Georgetown.

Worth the trip to try the Burgers... lots of options: Elk, Boar, Bison, Cow. Lots of delicious sounding options. Each one of us tried a different burger and all of us loved it! The happy hour menu is impressive - great $5 deals for quality appetizers and plenty of drink deals. We will be going back.

Birthday breakfast brunch was brilliant! They brought out these little sweet nachos for the table followed by an excellent corned beef hash and breakfast sliders. Service with a smile and they were kind enough to take our drinks off the bill for my husband's 30th birthday! Would definitely recommend.

Thunder Burger was on my list of places to try for awhile. We came in for brunch and Julia our server gave us the option of places to sit. Julia was friendly and accommodating and attentive. The French toast was great and the waffles were solid. After seeing the burger menu I'm excited to come back and try the burger options! Good meal and I look forward to coming back to try a signature burger.

We were on a family trip to D.C., staying in Rosslyn (other side of the Key Bridge). This place was recommended by the guy at the hotel desk. It did not disappoint. We had jerk shrimp app and nachos. Shrimp was good, nachos were a bit soggy. Kids had beef sliders and enjoyed them. My wife and I split the Pigs in a blanket burger. I was freaking awesome!!! Definitely worth a stop if you're in town.

This is my favorite restaurant for crab cakes in the country. They are absolutely delicious and I took others there with that recommendation. The burgers are super and perfectly cooked! The sauce served with the sweet potato fries made the taste out of this world!

Thunder Burger is not just a burger joint. My son had the Pig in a Cow Suit burger and it was perfectly cooked and tasty. I had the salmon and it was delicious with a fine glass of Sav Blanc from NZ. The waiter was kind enough to steer me away from the Happy Hour wines.
I loved the ambience of the back room. We sat in a corner with book shelves and comfy pillows. The windows were open with a breeze flowing in. I highly recommend - wonderful dining experience !

Enjoyed the casual atmosphere on a Sunday afternoon. The breakfast/brunch menu items were a great complement with lunch. I had beef sliders with egg on top. But they were open-faced and did not come with the top English muffins. So I had to eat them with a fork and knife which was not a bad thing! Otherwise they were quite tasty! Service was bit slow and a side of bacon was forgotten to be delivered but we were a large group of 5 with separate checks.

Got the Thunder burger and it was excellent. Recommendations by the wait staff were on point and every element very tasty-- from the burger itself to the condiments, toasted bun, and fries. My daughter got the sliders-- two beef and one pulled pork-- and she loved them, which is notable as she is often critical of even highly rated eateries.

Waitstaff was friendly and professional. Overall, a good experience

We went here with our son and daughter and their 9-month-old to celebrate the anniversary of their first date...which happened at Thunder Bar. It was a good spot for their date originally and good for a family now. Waitstaff was fantastic. Food was quite good too. Great draft beer selection. Thank you, Thunder Bar.

Thunder Burger has been an undervalued staple of Georgetown for a long time! I've gone there for many business lunches, brunch, and now my mom's birthday (we were headed to Pinstripes afterward). The decor and the food never disappoint! My recommendation - get the "Love Me Tender" burger with sweet potato fries!
