Fodor's Review

People flock here to drink at the several bars, which seem to go on for miles, and to enjoy well-prepared buffalo wings, hamburgers, and hearty sandwiches. A 150-year-old institution, the Old Ebbitt also has one of Washington's most well-known raw bars. Pasta is homemade, and the late-night menu runs the gamut from hummus to tacos until 1 am seven days a week. Despite the crowds, the restaurant never feels cramped, thanks to its well-spaced, comfortable booths. Service can be slow at lunch and during happy hour, when the oysters are half price.
