It’s been about 30 years since I visited this place, I moved out of town once I graduated long ago so I thought I’d give it a shot again … it was everything I remembered, classic DC experience, fun, great food and reasonably price entrees. Long live Old Ebbit grill!!

The food was absolutely delicious! The shrimp cake was kinda salty but the rest was awesome. It was my first time at Washington Dc and this place came up first when I searched restaurant and I loved it I will definitely recommend this place! We came at 4:30 just in time for happy hour and the oysters were delicious!

Took my high school son and got seated in the back room with families with unruly kids. Strike one. Ordered the swordfish and it arrived seriously undercooked. Strike two. The food, once properly cooked, was good. The waiter made no adjustment to the bill to account for uncooked food. Strike three. I’ve been here before a few times and had good experiences but not this time.

The location of the restaurant next to the White House / Treasury building is great. The ambiance and decor is befitting such a location and makes for a great experience. The food was excellent and surprisingly reasonably priced for such a great venue. Tue menu has something for everyone with great unique choices. The service was attentive and accommodating. It was a great experience and we will be back.

We had two GREAT servers - Gabriella and another lady who may have been Asian (can't tell because of masks). BOTH were very friendly and helpful and fun to talk with. We had two grand daughters from San Francisco and they were treated exceptionally well by them. Thank you.

Server was Mo, he was fantastic and was very attentive. Issues were bar and food quality. Ordered Cucumber Gimlets with appetizers, (oysters + crab dip). The First round was fantastic, however the second had to be sent back as it was green and basically tasted like it was vodka with sour mix. For dinner we Ordered the Pesto Pasta and Bone In Pork Chop. There was little to no flavor in the pesto sauce, the noodles were over cooked and the tomatoes should have been blistered. The pork-chop's first attempt was over cooked and extremely dry, flavor was nice however. Sent it back and received a second one that was completely raw on the inside. Server was kind enough to bring me a bowl of chowder so I was able to at least eat something. I will not return to the establishment.

Old Ebbitt Grill never disappoints. From the moment we entered, everyone was friendly and helpful. We were seated immediately a few minutes ahead of our reservations. Lena, our server was amazing and our food was delicious and all our requests were met.

Great space and service. Was here for brunch and felt that the food was fairly priced but the cocktails were much higher priced (comparatively) so we skipped this time. The breakfast melt was fantastic and the burger was great (perfectly cooked) except for the tomato (bruised and not plump/fresh) and the bread (boring lifeless/worthless bun), and the fries were just right. My suggestion would be to scrap the bun and replace it (and or offer it as an option) with the brioche style bread that they used for the melt because it was considerably more satisfying/elevating.. There's a very nice atrium space further inside but felt like a different restaurant re. the more modern decor et..

Very disappointed. We booked reservations many weeks in advance at Old Ebbitt Grill to close our DC vacation because we wanted our family to experience all the history there. We were extremely disappointed when we were seated in the lobby of the office building next door. This had all the ambience of a high school gym. Food was good but not spectacular. Our server was fine despite the pathetic setting. At least the people we got to walk past on our way in and out of the restaurant seem to be enjoying themselves.
