Have dined here many times and was extremely satisfied with the burgers, they were amazing as always. However the service could have been better. I understand it was a Saturday in Georgetown but we had to ask for a waiter 3 different times during the meal one of which was to acquire a waiter in the first place. However when he was there he was friendly and attentive.
Lastly there was a ceiling leak at the table behind us, did not impact us but was the cause for lower score on atmosphere.

The waitress did a phenomenal job and the food was good.

Initially, we did not like one of the cocktail drinks. The waitress asked us if we wanted something else and quickly changed the drink. We appreciate her for allowing us to exchange the drink.

We had a great experience!

Our waiter was not very attentive and got our side orders wrong as well as the bill amounts. Toward end of Sunday evening, he didn’t seem to care that much.

Food was ok and be on the look out for every single small add-one that’ll cost extra (cheese, fries, salad, etc.). A burger will cost u easily around $20 after u have the normal condiments included.

Overall just an ok experience.

Fine if you’re hungover and looking for some comfort food but as a mother’s days celebration venue it was a disappointment. Food was cold, service indifferent and the venue much darker and less welcoming than the photos on the website.

Service was mediocre. Was sat and literally took what felt like 30 min for someone to come and take first drink order or at least introduce themselves. Once food was brought out, no one came to see how things were, ask if we needed anything, or even provide a drink refill. Forgot to mention, was at the podium when we walked in for about 10 min before anyone came to even sit us when everyone clearly seen us standing there.

Our server was incredible. The other staff also interacted with our table. Personable and delightful conversation. Friendly. Food was delicious. Baseball game was on but sound off so I thought that was great. I had a Cosmopolitan so I am guessing full bar which is always lovely. Visiting from California but if I return I will def revisit. Thanks!

TERRRRRIIBBLE. I DIDNT EVEN EAT HERE! Open table wasn’t allowing me the option to cancel. We came here exhausted and hungry and the manager very rudely rushed us out and said he can’t seat anyone bc there was a leak. Meanwhile there were people still being served food. So then I asked him to cancel our reservation bc I was unable to on my end. He then proceeds to say honey I’m tryna find you a table. I said no your not! Your unable to even seat us for 30 minutes and didn’t even help cancel my reservation.

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).

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.
