  • Cozy place and historic. Washington (supposedly, at least) ate here or slept here or possibly fell asleep while eating here. I can't remember exactly. Decent food, but you're going for the history.
  • Went for lunch on Saturday during Restaurant Week. Had a reservation and arrived at 1:30. Finally got seated 15 minutes later and then took forever for them to even offer water. The place was not crowded. The only reason we got bread 20 minutes later was because we asked the waiter to feed the children. Food arrived more than 30 minutes later. My pot pie was lackluster and my friends fried oyster po boy sandwich was so bad that she peeled the fried layer of every single oyster so she could eat it. The kids menu burgers were really good though and huge. The only reason it gets 3 stars instead of less was because the kids menu burgers were good.
  • The historical atmosphere and associated menu offering in the restaurant was exquisite. The service was friendly and attentive. The roving Historian in period clothing and dialect was extremely entertaining. A well preserved icon that gives you the feeling you could be sitting next to George Washington or Thomas Jefferson having a pleasant evening dinner. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to "spend an evening" in our Capitol Area in the late 1700- early 1800 time period.
  • Gloria and I enjoyed the Revolutionary War atmosphere and the food was as good as expected but the home.made bread was so good we ordered a loaf to take home.
  • Fun tour packed with good information/stories. Our tour guide Jessica was very knowledgeable.
