My family and I ate here while vacationing in D.C. and we are still raving about this place!!! By far the best ribs we have ever eaten. Their carrot cake is absolutely a must have and to die for!!!!

We ate here several times at the recommendation of a friend who used to work in Dupont Circle, but it was also very conveniently located down the block from our hotel. We really liked the Front Page. The food was very good, well-prepared, decently-sized portions...More

Had drinks with colleagues the other night. Was expecting more. Found the place overly loud (to the point that we couldn't really talk), a bit dingy and not overly clean. Must be better places around.

We went on the wrong night - Thursday! Happy hour and crowded with young (well behaved) people. Our server, Juan, was great. The food was really good. I had the salmon BLT and it was really tasty. The music was way too loud for our...More

Stopped here for a beer and to watch basketball. It was alright. I didn't stay for a second beer. Seemed like a college kid's kind of place at night. Bartenders seemed nice. I didn't see any unique beers that I had not already tried while...More

My review is obviously biased. We took the kids and ate outside. There was no kids menu. Now for the good news. I had the fish tacos. These were really good. At the table we also had fried pickles (also very good). We also had...More

We were walking by, heading to another restaurant, when the delicious smells hit us. A waiter showed us happy hour specials and we were sold. Had the parmesan/garlic wings and they were delicious! And the rail drinks were a bargain. Definitely would go again!

Description
The Front Page DC, opened in 1985, has been serving DC's socialites for decades! We pride ourselves on prompt, friendly service, excellent food, long happy hours, and bountiful brunches. We have won DC's best happy hour and voted TOP 10 spots to Brunch. We have been known for our affordable pricing, including our famous $9 lunch specials. We offer insane specials including our half priced burger nights with trivia on Tuesdays and our biggest night of the week...Taco Thursday's with a free taco bar starting at 5 pm and $2 Coronas. The Front Page has always been family owned and operated, and we have always treated our restaurants like our home. We welcome you to our restaurant, and we hope you feel like you are home while you are here. Cheers, Alex Heidenberger
