Tips

  • Best bourbon bar in Capitol Hill
  • Cured meats are off@the charts! There's a whisk(e)y for every occasion!
  • The milk punch is perfectly smooth and not too sweet (and not milky at all).
  • Downstairs has frozen pina coladas, upstair just normal bar
  • Crowded during happy hour (which isnt a bad thing). Great old fashions
  • The food was good, the brunch menu was delicious. The service and staff are terrible, very hard to get their attention and your order set. Refill a drink or order food was a battle.
  • The food was good, my friends and I had the brunch menu, everything delicious. The service was terrible, very difficult to have their attention, refill our drinks and that kind of stuff.
  • The Bitches say: A. A reliable mainstay with hearty Southern fare, chill vibes, and a great bottomless deal. Its the perfect place for a boozy group brunch that lasts all afternoon
  • Great whiskey sour. The fried chicken and peach biscuit was pretty good, too.
  • Don't be fooled by this article, boring bloody...par for the course in DC. www.thrillist.com/drink/washington-dc/best-bloody-marys-in-washington-dc
  • Solid Bloody Mary's and brunch menu is unique unlike some typical DC brunches. Croque madame is amazing and topped with crab.
  • Great bourbon list. The Spicy chicken sandwich has a great kick to it, with some sweetness due to pineapple. The bar downstairs is a great spot as well.
  • Namesake barrels are everywhere in this Capitol Hill bar that serves craft cocktails and food from Garret Fleming. It also has a vast selection of "brown water" as it's listed on the menu.
  • Great cocktails. A Henway is my favorite (gin, blackberry, and a touch of lime juice)
  • Croque madame
  • Amazing bourbon, rye and whiskey list ! Also stocks rare beers .. we had the goose island wild ale which was a sour beer ! The croutons with cauliflower was nice !
  • First time having brunch here. The tagliatelle is so amazing
  • The sprouts are pretty darn good
  • Milk punch is great and Sam is the best bartender around!
  • Great cocktails and alway excellent service. The basement bar, while rarely open when ice been there is really unique. Basically no food options for vegans but go for the cocktails
