I love this place for the bar scene & the restaurant. It has great seafood and the entrees are reasonably priced, most under $20 - even the crab cakes.\r

At the bar, they have lots of beer & wine options and you can order from the bar

I went for a charity function on the roof. The roof was great but afterwards I ate dinner and was seated in the atrium, i would recommend sitting in the restaurant.

Pros: Great food

Cons: The Atrium reminds me of a food court

I live in Los Angeles and visit DC every other year or so. No matter what, my trip has to include three things, Visit to the Mall and Museums, Stroll through Union Station, and a meal at Old Ebbits.

The best crab cakes ever. Make a reservation because they're always busy. But even if i had to wait an hour, it would be worth it.

Wide variety of customers. Politicians, Tourists, Locals, all crowd in the bar and front lobby for a drink and to wait for a table.

I never miss it.

We took some friends that was here from FL we had a great time! The foo was great! The big thing for us is how good they were with our kids, 4,3,2. They had a good time and had a great menu for the kids to pick from.

After a morning or afternoon of sightseeing, you can't beat the location of Old Ebbitt for a satisfying meal. Located directly across the street from the Treasury building, this is convenient to the White House at a reasonable cost. Food is ok, but atmosphere and location make up for it.

The Old Ebbitt Grill is a unique experience not to be missed. You walk in and see the velvet booths and dark paneled interiors and wonder if you're out of your league. But this place welcomes DC power players and tourists alike. Their raw bar happy hour is also one of the greatest specials in the entire city. On Monday through Thursday from 3-6 and 11 pm to 1 am, everything is half off! You can get a $90 oyster platter for $45! And the food is terrific, too. Their crabcake is spectauclar and when in season, they work wonders with copper river salmon. The burgers are pretty well-known, too.

This is a washington institution that deserves its status. While ceratinly not gourmet status, you can get a good meal here at a reasonable price.Great Martinis. Good for before or after Theatre. Always crowded and parking is a problem.

The Old Ebbitt Grill is located right near the White House on 15th Street in Northwest DC. It is an upscale restaurant with a very spacious dining area. The food is good, but definitely not worth the price they charge. There are much better restaurants in the area. Some items on the menu are moderately priced, such as a cheeseburger and fries for $8.25, Other items are exorbitant, such as The Orca Platter (Lobster, dozen Jonah crab claws, dozen clams, dozen oysters, dozen shrimp) for $84.95.

Of course, the Old Ebbitt Grill has a reputation of being a place "to see and be seen." It is frequented by celebrities and political bigwigs. If you're looking for a DC dining experience, you might want to check this place out. Oh, there is complementary valet parking after 6pm.

There is a kids menu, which lists everything for just $5 and includes a beverage and dessert. However, I don't really look at this restaurant as a family restaurant.

PROS: good location, large dining area, decent food, complementary valet parking
CONS: uppity restaurant, usually crowded on the weekends (make reservations)
