This used to be one of the best restaurants on K Street. Fabulous service and great food. Not anymore. Service was incredibly slow and inattentive on a Monday night when the dining room was half empty. None of the food was very good; all six diners complained about their dishes. The flounder, for example, was bland and greasy. Mediocre crab... More

As a member of the Landry dining club which M&S is a member, we visit this location several times a year. We decided to sit outside on Friday night between Good Friday church services and we allotted 2 hours to have dinner outside. What we didnt realize was that our lovely waitress was working the inside bar area PLUS our... More

Well I guess I had higher expectations for this place as I have never tried M&S. I thought it to be a higher end establishment with better food and service. I was not impressed at all. Their version of a "Pittsburgh " med rare steak is a nearly live piece of meat on a plate. So as far as being... More

I was treated to dinner at this restaurant. I normally don't eat steak but I decided to give it a go. I ordered the T-bone steak with the bone in well done. This steak knocked my socks off. It was tender and perfectly seasoned. The portion was generous as well, so when I want steak this is the restaurant of... More

We are lucky to work as short walk to this location, so we dine here often. It is also good for carryout when we don't have time to be away from the office. From the moment we were greeted when we walked in until Trenee served us the service was great! The crab cakes are always good! It is all... More

We chose M&S because we knew the brand and it was a short walk from our hotel. The service was good, albeit "leisurely" which was fine with us as it was the first night of our vacation and we were in no hurry. Besides, my meal was worth waiting for--best crab cakes ever!!

No location for this chain where I live so I couldn't wait to finally use a gift card I'd had collecting dust. In town on business and uncharacteristically dined solo. Felt a bit neglected as a large party next to me demanded and received most of the server's attention. Enjoyed a shrimp appetizer and a mahi-mahi entree. Not memorable, but... More

Wednesday evening as I was returning to the hotel, I stumbled upon this restaurant. I was preparing to have dinner at another place, but I decided to give this a try. It was a very good experience. The server (Paige) was first class and pleasant. The soup that I ordered was not available at that moment, she substituted for another... More

We had some great food, oysters, crab, coconut shrimp, lobster bites and steaks were chosen by our party of 5 so we could sample their best options. Although the food was very good and tasty our waiter was under pressure with 4 other tables to serve in our section, we needed to ask several times for wine, mustards, lemon and... More
