Awesome vibe and ambience! The food was pretty good and the drinks were excellent. The place is VERY loud, so it wouldn't be a place to try to have a long conversation or a serious discussion. Would definitely return for the vibe!

Went for happy hour on Thursday, great Sangrias (white preferred) deals, loved the crab dip and fries. Salmon was a little dry but we loved our waitress, Marissa! She was awesome. Nice place for happy hour or dinner, booth seating was our fav too.

Honestly, the food was better than I expected. It was flavorful and the hibiscus mimosas were creative. I really enjoyed it here, although, the music was a little boring. I will come back for sure

Lots of people walking around inside without a mask. It made us uncomfortable.

There is a 90 minute seating rule. We were at 99 minutes when we were asked to leave since it was past 90 minutes, while the two tables next to mine had sat down before my table and still had not left. When I brought that up to the host, he said the table next us had put a deposit down and spent more money than us (our bill came out to over $200 before tip...) Our waiter was nice and understanding and didn’t try and hurry us out. Food was good, but being treated like that after going there 2 Sundays in a row and spending more than $450 there definitely was a huge turnoff.

We went to celebrate a birthday and I made a reservation in advance. A few people from our table were late and the hostess would not let them in even though they gave my name and said I had to come down and get them. I have never experienced this before, it seemed very odd to me. We also got yelled at by another staff member foe being in the hallway when we were simply waiting for the rest of the group to catch up. Overall the food was good and they had a cool variety of mimosas but I probably won’t go back simply because of the service.

5 minutes late for our reservation. Called ahead of time to let them know and no answer. Arrived at the restaurant and found out they gave our table away. Rude workers - “accommodated” us by giving us a table for only 30 minutes. Totally ridiculous.

Such a great experience! We went for bottomless brunch and had an absolute blast. The food was amazing, atmosphere was energetic, but still enforced covid protocols. Loved it!

Made a reservation for a particular area/table and they said they were all full and was on a 90 min wait. Whats the point of making a reservation then. So we got moved to another table.

Completely forgot about my friends food order and then tried to tell us we only had 20 min left before she had even received her food! They did rectify by allowing us to order another round of drinks and extra time so that she could start and finish her meal. Could use more internal organization. We were constantly getting interrupted by employees.

When I arrived there was a huge line to check in, because there was no host/hostess at the table. It took 10 minutes for them to get there and then one host was just sitting on his phone. From there, the waiter brought the wrong order out and when alerted of this, just shrugged. Probably wouldn’t go again unless I was just going to the bar

Enjoyed a casual Valentine’s Day brunch here but was unfortunately sat near the kitchen. Felt awkward and disruptive throughout the meal. Great concepts, unfortunate seating.

Wilson’s hardware is an amazing brunch spot. Their food never disappoints, the drinks are great (and reasonably priced), and the service is amazing. The staff was super flexible when our party was running behind and was even lenient on the 2 hour seat time. I have come here for bottomless mimosa brunch twice now and had an amazing time both times.

We always have a great experience here. Music in the rooftop is amazing, and is open with great heaters, so I feel safe there in terms of Covid. Food is also good. Jad the manager always checks on us to make sure we are well taken care of, he is great!
Definitely recommend this place, our favorite spot in Clarendon!!

Would have liked to stay longer than the
2 hours allowed. Would rather pay a table amount for going over or been given the choice for bottle service

Loved the ambiance, music and videos


I can’t recommend to a friend because of the short 2 hour time limit

Wilson hardware is known to be fun and it was a good brunch still even with covid BUT THE WORST SERVICE EVER.
I don’t know if I would even go back normal times because of the awful service.
They kept HOVERING over our table after like an hour and kept trying to clear our table VERY AGGRESSIVELY.
THERE WAS NO ONE IN LINE TO COME AND AT LEAST 4 other empty tables.
So rude.
The mimosas and food were fine but the service really ruined it. Literally every 2 minutes, the server and bus boy would try to take our food away, even though 2 minutes a go we said we were still working on it.

This place is great there was awesome music and the food was great! The menu gave a balance of typical bar foods and great dinner options.
Reservations was easy and social distancing precautions were in place.
The service was very fast and our waitress was super cool. Coming from out of town with the ability to dine out this was such a great experience; this will be the first place I go when I return to the DMV area.
