Food was amazing, and service was even better! I made reservation online and requested a quieter table by a window with a view, if possible, since my husband and I were there to celebrate his 60 th birthday. This was our his first time in Washington DC and our first time at this restaurant. Well --- we were SO impressed with the table reserved for us --- it was everything we wanted and more! Thanks for helping to make the day special for my husband!

Father’s Day dinner. This place is large it’s energetic, it’s very loud. I would’ve rather have eaten outside where it was actually quieter. We sat down and within a five minutes we had 3 servers come over to welcome us and take our order...seemed unorganized. The food was really good though.

Disappointing dinner. Food was very ordinary but prices were very high. Service was slow. Views of the river were unavailable due to a meeting. Furniture in dining room is quite beat-up looking. This is a tourist spot because of its enviable location but without that the restaurant would not make it.

Seafood was outstanding - Chesapeake oysters were fresh and the calamari was quite addictive garnished with banana peppers! Will most definitely return for dinner.

Just awful food. Really barely edible. I had steamed clams that were un-chewable and my daughter had mussels which tasted like low tide. I guess that explains why it was completely empty at 12:30 on a weekday.

The food, service and ambiance were great!! We had dinner on the patio during sunset and sat right near the boardwalk. So much fun! Only small downside would be the people coming in to dock. There were two boats trying to “compete” for loudest music so that made it hard to hear one another. Thankfully the one louder group didn’t stay that long. Overall, I would recommend this place for the views and food! So good!!

Great seafood meal! The outside table was great except that the fountain was a little intense and loud. Apparently the flood wall was up so the ambience was different than usual.

This was awful,! Restaurant was dirty, noisy, service was below par and my dinner was terrible. I ordered a caprese salad with a piece of grilled chicken. The chicken looked disgusting. And took it off the plate immediately. The salad was even worse. Seemed like they poured a bottle of olive oil on it. Took a few bites and the cheese tasted sour. Pushed it aside and did not eat it. Next morning was sick. How can you ruin a basic Salad? I will never go back again. They did take the salad off my bill without asking which was good.

We ate outside on a beautiful day. Food was OK, nothing to rave about. The tables outside need painting. The white wine was not chilled until we asked for it. But it was a wonderful day. Food tasty, but I had a crab cake sandwich. Small sandwich and the plate smothered in French Fries. A pet peeve of mine. I can get French Fries for $2. Please be imaginative in your sides if you are going to charge $18 for a meal.
Wine price was reasonable. Service was nice. Everyone was pleasant. A good experience though don't expect to be blown away by the food.

although we had a indoor reservation, we chose to sit outdoors with the Happy hour crowd. That resulted in a noisier experience but one filled with a better boardwalk and river view. Activities from patrons and boardwalk kept our attention as it was a beautiful day and folks were doing their after work thing. A bit expensive but the food was fine, service attentive. Probably outside is cheerier for the Happy Hour drinks and appetizer moment. Did not regret our choice at all.

The Sunday brunch is amazing. I am typically not a big fan of buffets, but Tony and Joes's offers a large variety of fresh seafood, salads, and traditional brunch items. I opted for the bottomless mimosas, and the waiter kept them coming! The only drawback is that the buffet is advertised on Yelp and other sites as $35/person. It is actually $45 per person. The extra $20 (for a party of two) was an unexpected addition. It will not stop us from going back, but it would have been god to know in the beginning.
