We chose the Old Ebbitt Grill purely because of the proximity to our hotel. I had booked just in case it was busy. I'm glad I did as it was packed.
The food was good, the service attentive and the place was packed but we didn't feel overall crowded in our seats.
Its not until we got home that I learnt of it's history.
Grilled Filet 8 oz with crispy garlic potatoes, green beans and red wine sauce $25.95
Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes with spiced sweet potato, green beans and tarragon oil $17.95
My biggest regret is not ordering any oysters.
