We love fried chicken and fresh oysters, so we brought them to the Navy Yard in the heart of Washington DC. We believe that great food and drinks, coupled with warm hospitality, can make anyone’s day better!

Excellent atmosphere, service, and food. The $1 mimosas were some of the best I’ve had in a while!

The chicken was awesome - Nashville hot was the best. We had it in the sandwich and as an entree and both were delicious. Also loved the fires and mac n cheese. The place in general was very casual. It was smaller and louder than I expected for a quick dinner with my boyfriend and his dad.

It stared off bad and didn’t get any better. We had reservations for 6:30 and we got there on time but they told us that they had not noticed the reservation so we had to wait for 25 minutes to get seated. We then proceeded to order a couple of appetizers - We’ll do the crab dip please, “oh sorry but we’re out of that”. Ok then we’ll do the crab fritters, “oh sorry but we’re out of that as well”. How about the pickles? “Oops out of that too”. Are you kidding me? So we ordered 6 oysters and our meals.....20-25 minutes later we have not even gotten the oysters. Finally the food comes. My two friends ordered the half chicken meal to share and my partner and I also ordered the half chicken meal to share - there was not one piece of white meat on would amounted to a whole chicken - not one! We were told that “their” half chicken means random pieces of chicken - seriously?! I’m sorry but if you order a half chicken in any other restaurant I’ve ever been in literally means one half of a chicken, not two legs, a wing and two thighs. They should not be calling it a half chicken if that’s how it is. And the chicken itself we thought was good but nothing to write home about. The brussel sprouts were tasty, the mac&cheese was fair and the biscuits were good. Overall a disappointment and not sure I’d go back which is sad as I had high hopes.

The food was good but not mind-blowing, the music was good but quite loud. Overall I think it is a good, middle-of-the-road type place!

Apple miso Brussel sprouts were great! Service was good. Parking can be a mess, but then again, it’s DC.

Good chicken and fries. Biscuits were warm and fluffy. Restaurant small but experience was good. It was trivia night so that was fun
