Aretha Franklin really sang here early in her career. A classic bar scene Georgetown Joint. Food and drinks ok especially for tourist place. Regulars enjoy place just they way it is. Why change ? Near Four Seasons hotel and La Chaumiere restaurant. A few blocks from Washington Harbour. Nostalgic place for those who want to relive the 70s

Thank RMJ11

Dear RMJ11, You're right, we're a classic Georgetown restaurant, one of the few independent restaurants that are still trying to survive in an area full of corporate and upscale places. I read your review and was surprised by your 3 star rating, especially since you seem to be one of our loyal patrons from M Street. Let me explain, we... More

Went to Georgetown for dinner with no reservations anywhere (I know - stupid - on a Saturday night) All of the restaurants on M Street were PACKED. On a recommendation from TA we went down a sidestreet to the waterfront and found Mr. Smith's of Georgetown. Almost didn't go in - it's a bar - it's decor is early worn... More

We walked down to the waterfront and saw this place to decided to give it a try. It is in an old building facing the water and was very "old town" themed. We were seated upstairs by our waiter. He didn't seem like he was glad we were there. No smile, just the minimum amount of interaction he could get... More

My Wife and I went here for lunch. It's a short walk from the water, down from Kennedy Center. It bills its self as the friendliest Saloon in Town. As you come in the door, to the right is the bar area and to the left in a separate area are tables and booths for lunch. Upstairs are the bathrooms... More

Popped on as my friend thought there was live music, but not last night! So instead we had a drink or two, chatted in a great barbefore moving on again. If we come back to DC this place will be high on the list!

The atmosphere at this little pub is great. It's a comfy no frills bar with plenty of room. Unfortunately, the evening that we went there was an issue with the electricity and the A/C and upstairs lights were not working. The drinks were good and we, nevertheless, had fun. The entertainment, however, left something to be desired. We stayed to... More

Good food, fair prices. They have a beer of the month for a fair price as well. The portions are huge. Mostly too much for us Europeans. :)

The people who work there are super nice but the food is "meh". The iced tea tastes especially weird. I wish it were better because nice people should have good things happen to them
