Service
 
A “love for local, seasonal food” fuels this “farm-to-table” chainlet where “big portions” of “something-for-everyone” American dishes (e.g. red velvet pancakes, bacon lollipops) are paired with “unusual homemade drinks” ; the rustic-chic settings are “always crowded” , and despite the “noise” , fans claim “you can’t go wrong” here.

At nearly 10,000 reviews on yelp, this place lives up to the hype. We both got the chicken and waffles, and did not regret a thing. Each plate comes with mac n cheese and green beans as well. I got the potatoes instead of mac n cheeses and it was some of the softest, creamiest potatoes I've ever eaten. Green beans were pretty well seasoned and tasted fresh. Chicken was out of this world, really filling and crispy and well fried, but not dense in my stomach or unhealthy feeling. The waffles were the best part in my opinion. They were super soft and when you added the runny syrup on it, it tasted like bread pudding but in waffle form. Seriously the best waffles I've ever had. Ya gotta go

Definitely a spot to check out if you're in downtown DC for a couple of nights. Custom cocktails (made with the restaurant's own distilled spirits), unique sides, and great meat and hometown entrees. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, and although the place was packed (a line out of the door for at least the 90 minutes we were there), we were able to be seated with our reservation relatively quickly. The restaurant is fitted out very nicely and the location can't be beaten. A great meal.

Our waitress Hailey was amazing! We wondered into this place without knowing when we left would be one of our favorite places! Great food. Amazing drinks. Great dessert. And amazing service by server, hostess and manager!!! Everything made from scratch. Special dietary needs? No problem! I recommend and I'll be back!
