Shrimp, Blue Crab, and Salmon in a rich cream soup
Our waitress was not very attentive, we went early and they were not busy, our mushrooms came out lukewarm, the crab bisque was missing the crab, another server cleared our table because she saw the dishes sitting there.
WE LOVE THE PLATFORM IT'S AWSOME! THE CHEF IS GREAT!
Very good service. Food was excellent and served promptly.
A friend and I heard about the $25 lobster dinner and went to try it out. A whole The meal was Maine lobster, with sides, we ordered a fried green tomatoes appetizer and split it, there were 7 slices, the meal came with hushpuppies instead of bread with a great dipping sauce. I had a side salad my friend had a cup of gumbo. What a bargain! There was a jazz duo, a girl playing standup bass and a guy playing guitar, they were students but very good! We were there early (5:30) because we were warned they can run out of the lobster. So it was happy hour. Our server, Annabelle, was excellent. The food came right on schedule and it was hot. A lobster dinner, with 1/2 an appetizer and a Tanqueray martini, 20% tip included, came to $45 each. I'll be back! This promo is every Thursday, indefinitely.
Food was excellent it came out pretty fast, and the service was great!
Excellent meal and service!
Our server was outstanding and so was the food!! Jon visited our table twice, once to greet us and afterwards to Check on our food and service.
Great! Oysters on the half shell were 1.00 on Sundays. Kind so small but good nonetheless!
Great place to eat with a live band. We loved everything and our food was all delicious!
First time there and we will be back. They have a varied menu with a lot of choices for everyone’s tastes. We got lots of food for the price. Tracey was a great waitress. Very nice and the service was quick! Highly recommend the salmon picatta, fried pickles and potato leek soup.
Celebrating our friends recent marriage
Love the atmosphere. This is our neighborhood bar and restaurant. Especially enjoy the Thursday lobster special.
Extremely comfortable. Happy and helpful service. Great drinks served from bar.
Food was ok.
My husband’s birthday. I wanted to get him oysters.
I love Washington platform for their oyster festival but the wing fling did not live up to my expectations. The flavor of the Wings both the "groasted" and the regular style was difficult to taste. We ordered four different flavors and all and it was hard to tell the difference. The groasted ones were a little dry and the regular Style does a little undercooked with the skin not being crispy at all. There are many things I would recommend Washington platform for but the wing fling is definitely not one of them.
Great ambiance for a romantic dinner. Came on a Friday night for my anniversary and we were treated to live jazz which sounded amazing. The food was delicious and the cocktails were pretty ok. Our waitress was attentive and conversational.
We have been going the last few years for WingFling. Wings are the best!
I especially went there to order the lobster special that they have on Thursdays. I had reserved a table for 6:30p and when I was seated I asked about the special and was told it was already sold out for the night. They serve until 9p. I spoke to the chef/manager and he said they had a bigger crowd early and that was why there was no lobster left. He said he didn't want to get stuck with too much lobster. I pointed out that it was only 6:30p. He said other Thursdays they had enough. I mentioned he ought to mention on their website that the lobster was limited. He did apologize and said if I come back next week he would give me an employee discount. I ended up ordering wings, which were good.
Lobster special on Thursday night was great.
Super service and food
Service and food were excellent! Jazz Band started at 7:30 pm. Loved the music but was there to catch up with friends, sitting close to stage was loud to also have conversation. If dining with only husband music would not have been any problem! Request table in adjacent room if you want dinner conversation.
Scallops were very good. Grilled salmon delicious.
Food was great, server was attentive. We will be back!!!
Great food and great service. Good atmosphere as well. Highly recommend trying
When you can get a whole lobster dinner 900 hundred miles from Maine for $25 it's a wonderful thing! Well done and thank you.
My wife and I had plans for a great evening date, dinner at a restaurant we have never tried and then concert tix afterwards. We searched for about 30 minutes to find a menu that looked good and settled in Washington Platform Saloon.
While the service was fine, prompt, and drinks arrived quickly but the food was less than expected. She had the Chicken Pompei and I had the Giovanni seafood and pasta dish. We also had Oysters on the half shell and fried green tomatoes. We each had salads and she also had the Thia Slaw. The chicken was tough and had gravy instead of the delicate butter and white wine they listed. The fried green tomatoes where too thick and like the Thai slaw-flavorless. The Oyster and salad where fine, I had cesear and she had mixed but she said the dressing was also bland. Perhaps the chef had Covid and lost the sense of smell and taste…I don’t know but we won’t be back. The check was $100 and we were quite disappointed.
The Oysters Regency were amazing!
Great Wings with even better flavor.
My wife and I had the Buffalo and Big Al sauces. Again, amazing!
Will definitely be back!
Who knew there were so many ways to prepare chicken wings. My friend, who loves them, was amazed! A fun time.
Disappointed we weren’t asked if we wanted to sit in the room with the live music
Great food and service. Music was perfect volume so you could actually have a conversation
this was a great place, music was way too loud so we moved to the other side and it was perfect. You could hear the music and still hear each other. The food and drinks were awesome and priced just right.
like the building and food. making reservation didn't seem to make much difference as no table was available and we had to wait for a table to clear.service OK after that. parking is almost always available nearby this downtown location
Delish food, friendly staff, and a unique local feel.
Great food and service as always. Bartender put a nice twist on our bourbon manhatten's
The food was just wonderful. We took friends for their first time there and they loved it. They are already to come back down again. It is my husband's favorite place to eat!
Our server, Carly, was friendly, helpful and one of the best servers I have had anywhere.
She is definitely an asset to the business! We will ask for her again. All had the seafood and loved everything they ordered. My steak was cooked to perfection. Can't wait for our next visit!
It was exactly what we expected - good food, well-prepared, good portion sizes. Not fancy, just hot, tasty with great beer an excellent Pimms Mojito. Atmosphere was traditional and friendly. Our server was super helpful and nice.
Great food and plenty of it! Waitress was awesome.
Washington Platform never fails to live up to it’s reputation as a wonderful, welcoming, delicious restaurant! I have an array of favorites…something I can’t say about other places.
