If you like mussels, this is the place to go. They have mussels prepared 5 different ways. The bison burgers were very good. My family was very pleased with this choice. The waiter was very nice and kept up with our needs.

Great dinner selection of Mussels. Very tasty. The canned music was awful and loud. Whatever happened to ambient smooth lounge music while dining? ?

Had been wanting to eat here for some time because of the reviews and finally came here with friends over the weekend, before a production at the Atlas Theatre -- which is very convenient across the street. The restaurant has an unassuming entrance and the downstairs is basically a bar with decor simply the old bare brick walls. We were... More

Best mussels and fries you can eat. Have been here twice, both times the food was perfect. Only issue was that on the second visit, we had a reservation for 8 people and they sat us at a table for 6. There was not enough room at the tale at all.

Had brunch here yesterday. My friend and I lingered long after what was probably appropriate but we were never made to feel that we should leave. My food (pork belly with grits) was absolutely delicious. The bloody marys were super, and the ambiance was just perfect. Very friendly servers and staff. I'll be back.

Hubby and I took in a performance during Capital Fringe Festival at the Atlas Performing Arts Center across the street. Had reservations for dinner here after. Initially skeptical by the looks of the door (the play we saw was about Civil War era and hubby joked that the building looked to be about as old), but inside is a most... More

We came here and had chicken wings and frites and they were both delicious. Most reviews are about the mussels but the wings are still good and there are some burgers too. The staff were very friendly too. There wasn't a great beer choice for my liking so that's why I didn't give 5 stars and the food is perhaps... More

My husband and I had dinner at the bar. The bartender provided great service with both the food and the drinks. We loved the no nonsense ambiance and the many beer selections. The mussels mariniere were the best mussels I've ever had. The broth was wonderful and the mussels were huge and cooked to perfection.

The mussels are as good as avertised...and if the frites are not good, you don't have the synergy you need. But, they of course were. Good drinks nice staff, great evening chatting. Will go back for something else, but may have to split mussles as an app!

We were staying in D.C. last week while doing all the touristy things one does in D.C. We found Dr. Granville Moore's thanks to TripAdvisor, and were we glad we did!
