Washington Nationals Ball Park-Any Restaurants Nearby?

We will be visiting the DC area over Memorial Day weekend and will be attending a baseball game at the Nationals Ball Park. We would prefer to eat at a restaurant before the game so as to not have to deal with over-priced, average food at the ballpark (at least if their food is like most ballparks). Are there any restaurants right near the park? We will be taking the Metro and would prefer to get to the stadium and walk somewhere that is close.

Not yet -- the ballpark is the spur to development in that area, and is still surrounded by holes in the ground and construction cranes. It may be a year or more until restaurants are operating.

Best to eat around Gallery place before boarding Metro to the game.

You are permitted to bring food into the stadium (individual portions in soft containers, no coolers or KFC buckets), so if you have a chance to pick up good deli sandwiches and snacks, that is another option.

There's not much right by the baseball park but a few blocks to the north is
Levis Port Cafe which most people seem to like. Its located at
1102 8th Street SE
Washington, DC 20003
(202) 547-6500

A little further north along 8th street are a bunch of restaurants in all price ranges. You can see a map of restaurants in the area with reviews here:

TownCar: once or twice in DC we've rented a limosine style town car with a driver for a few hours... good service like a limousine but a lot cheaper. It might simplify your schedule to not have to deal with the memorial day crowds on the metro after the game

I agree w/ kayd:

Eat near the Galery Place Metro Station (ENDLESS choices) and then hop back on the Green Line to continue to the Navy Yard Station to see the game.

While Levi's and the restaurants on 8th St. SE (between D & G st. SE) are walking distance - it's a LONG walk. Getting out near Gallery Place and then hopping back on the Metro is much quicker.
