From out of the cold into the warm comforting arms of William Jeffrey's Tavern...

On a ridiculously chilly Friday evening we entered WJT and was immediately impressed with its "Cheers" like bar and atmosphere. Dark handsome interior and spacious design you could feel the energy of the guests as you're led to a private table fo

I've been here many times with friends and while we haven't exactly reached been regulars, we've definitely gotten to know some of the staff and how amazing they are. They all put their best food forward and I've never seen a more positive staff. They're on top of service and making sure you have everything you need. At other places ... read more

As another review has said, I also have mixed feelings about this place. The food isn't great. The nachos are a huge portion so do not try to eat that with another meal. It's typical bar food so don't expect anything spectacular.

However, trivia night here is fun. I think it's because District DC does them so it's more mainst

I've been here a few times and must say that the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with homemade ranch is by far the best thing on the menu. I would highly suggest for anyone looking for a good southern fried chicken!

Came here because we saw people eating outside and it looked like brunch.  Walked in they gave us the menu for brunch, but it had just ended.  I must say though their brunch selection looked delicious...might have to go try it out.  Anyway, we had went next door to the escape room and told us that they would give us a free appetizer ... read more

We sort of stumbled upon this place by accident, and we could not have been happier! Our server, Kendra, was amazing and provided excellent recommendations - both for food and beverages. The pretzels with cheese fondue was great and the steak with chimichurri was excellent. The atmosphere is cool, and provides a great place to have a ... read more

Excellent tap selection. Eclectic tavern with good food and nice staff. Sat at the bar on BBQ nite and had brisket, pulled pork and chicken. All great with coleslaw. I usually hit the Celtic House during the week when I'm in DC but will make this place a regular stop too!!

If we lived in the immediate vicinity we'd probably be here multiple times per week.  As is, it's on my bus route home and a short drive from our place further south.  The food is that good.  The nightly happy hour specials draw us in, especially for the mussel pots, but please give customers more than one piece of toasted bread and ... read more

This has become one of my new favorite places. The environment is really cool and a good place to hang out with friends. Everything I’ve ordered there has been really good. My friend always gets the fried chicken sandwich that you can toss in a sauce.

Went there for brunch with a group of friends and had a wonderful time there. W shot there pretty early and the service was amazing. The bottomless mimosas are a great deal and the churro doughnuts are to die for (no seriously they are amazing). I definitely will visit back again soon!

The grilled wings were good and not too hard, but needed some season. The sauce that came with it was good. The calamari was fried perfect and was tender. It came mixed with fried jalapeno peppers and red pepper that is not to hot. The waiter was awesome. The bathrooms were clean with instant hot water.

Second late night experience and it was great. Food was delicious and Eric the bartender was a gracious host. This will be a must stop every time I'm on town! So glad to have an oyster option close to home!
