I went there on a Groupon certificate. I wouldn’t go three for the regular priced menu. The views from there are nice, especially in the night.

I read some mixed reviews so I had some trepidation but all turned out to be great. We did use a Groupon which was a good deal as entrees were high. Some reviews indicated poor service. Ours was excellent. Bread is very basic. Hot fudge sundae tasted more like chocolate sauce, cookie on top just ok, not good enough to waste additional calories. All in all we enjoyed ourselves.

last minute choice and it was a good one. Excellent fish, oysters, great salad and quiet. Of course we were there on a Monday night! The place is big which is not our usual choice but we were pleasantly surprised at how good the dinner was.

Very good food & attentive service made for a nice dinner at Tony & Joe's Seafood Place. My wife and I enjoyed delicious salads, Maryland crab cakes, and the Chesapeake Pot, which contained shrimp, mussels, clams, sausage, and corn on the cob.

This is always a good place to meet up with friends and visitors to DC. The food is good, the service always good, and the view is lovely. The noise is more manageable than many in the area and we appreciate that and the ability to talk with friends without having to yell over others.

 (Denver)·Dined on October 23, 2017

The service was okay, nothing great and our waiter wasn't thrilled to be there which was obvious. The bathrooms are horrible- there is tile missing from the walls, toilet paper all over the floor and they look like a dirty bar bathroom instead of a fine restaurant. I was so glad my visit to the bathroom was at the end of my visit as it would have been very off putting in the middle of my meal. They need to invest in a bathroom renovation desperately to keep a menu with items over $20 on it.

Last night in DC, wanted a relaxed outdoor experience with great food and wine. This place was perfect. Our waiter was young, but knew what he was doing. A professional. His recommendations were spot on, and the food was varied for all tastes. We enjoyed the views of the city and will return with our next visit.

I Love Brunch at Tony and Joes BUT they have a new setup I did not like. I actually had to stand in line and wait to get my food. The previous setup was open and flowed nicely - never waited in line. Food is still good but the new setup is noisy (more tables very close to one another) and one must now stand in line to get food (cheapens the experience).

Our reservation was for 11:00am when T&J’s opened. There were 6 parties, of various number of people, waiting in the bar area to be seated by the hostess. Everyone was seated , out of order, but all were seated even though the hostess did not go by the list of reservations. I had to remind the hostess twice that my party of 3 had reservations and there were plenty of tables with water views, which we requested in the reservation. The food made up for the service but does not justify the $55 per person brunch buffet price with mimosas. We definitely did not eat $55 meal. There was no lobster on the buffet, only shrimp, salmon and crab/shrimp dip which was good, and all the other regular buffet foods . There were 2 carving tables (beef ) and omelet and waffles made to order, basic buffet. Now , here comes the check... my party of three paid separately, which is permitted at T&J because buffet price is flat fee. Two of us paid our individual check with card and the other paid cash. Our server ran the two cards and never bought back the change for the 3rd check. The server assumed that the change was for him. Horrible ! Never assume. He missed his blessing because we all were giving him a 20% tip because we worked in the service industry and realize that receiving a good tip at buffet establishments can be challenging, especially when the cost is over $50 for a buffet. The change was less than 15%! The server did not give my colleague an opportunity to tip . The entitlement attitude is so prevalent in this area! It was our first time at T&J’s and our last. Stick with what we know, back to Farmers Fishers and Bakers! We really enjoy it there (Washing Harbor) and great , fun service!

A friend and DC resident recommended this restaurant. He knows one of the owners. The weather was perfect for outdoor evening dining and we had a table near the waterfront. This is not an inexpensive restaurant so we were surprised at the tables/chairs, which are more suitable for a patio at a fast food joint. And that’s the impression we were ultimately left with: despite the nice setting and high prices the idea is to move clients in and out with as little effort for the restaurant as possible. A martini was served in a wine glass. Beer and water were served in flimsy, clear plastic cups. One gets better service ware at Nationals ballpark. The seafood was okay, not exceptional, but service was again evocative of a fast food establishment. The wait staff called out the main course orders to the diners like barkers at a county fair.
If one is a tourist and wants an unexceptional dining experience on Washington Harbor this might be the place, but it isn’t cheap.

Recommended by Embassy Suites Georgetown. Table had crumbs on floor. Waiter attentive, not personable. Bread tasted like it came off a grocery store shelf. Clam chowder fair, salad good, swordfish good and large serving , side vegetables good but serving too small. Long neck clams large and tough, very difficult to chew and swallow. Shrimp overcooked. Last two dishes overused lemon to cover flaws.

I thought this place always looked fun, but I was surprised by how bad the food was. Overcooked lobster and mussels to the point they were like gristle. Plus, there were rats running around on the patio as we were eating. At least our server Amber was good and nice. This place is not even close to worth the cost of the food.

I had been to Tony and Joe's before in 2013. And it was great. It must have changed management because this time around the food was completely different and not good. I took my fiancé as a surprise brunch thinking it would be like mh previous experience, To my horror it was not at all. There was no bread table, barely any meats to chose from..there was no chicken.. what if you don't eat red meat? As far as seafood options.. forget that , they only had shrimp with old Bay and the oysters look like they have been out since last night, and to make matters worse my fiancé and I had to rush home because he was not feeling well. Im extremely disappointed, for $45+ a plate, I expected more from this place. I will never come back again.

This was my first time to Tony and Joes without a Groupon. As always, it was very nice, and the food was delicious! I really enjoyed the ambiance, as we had a great window view of the boats, and people strolling along the waterfront. Great choice, before we boarded the 'DC Cruise' for the 'Monuments by Moonlight' cruise.

The setting of Tony and Joe's is great. The food seems to have fallen off a bit since I was last there, though. The gazpacho was tasty, but the crab in it was lost under a glob of sour cream. The crab cake was good, but the corn/pepper/zucchini that came with it was very disappointing. It wasn't even properly seasoned. My dining companion ordered the gumbo, which he returned. He then ordered the fried shrimp appetizer, which was ok, although the shrimp were overcooked an the steak tacos, which were good.

I'm not sure if it was the lunch rush or what, but it was a bit disappointing for the price.
