  • Jenipher B.Get the chocco taco. You WON'T regret it. It's super satisfying!

    55555 by Jenipher B.


  • Sara A.Strange. Hot plates are teeny tiny. They're not whole meals. Who orders two tablespoons of pasta for $8? Misleading

    22222 by Sara A.

    55555 by Justin M.


  • Joseph H.Take advantage of their 4 oz tasters (comes in snifters) which are perfect to try multiple beers on an ever changing draft list

    55555 by Joseph H.


  • Arminda K.Really great beer selection divided into easy-to-skim categories. If you can't pick just one, go for the option to get 4oz beer flights. Plus the disco fries were delicious!

    55555 by Arminda K.


  • Behrad B.Nothing goes better with all the delicious beers than a Fig & Prosciutto flatbread.

    55555 by Behrad B.


  • Ray C.Holy poop! What a beer selection. Get there early to get a seat at the bar.

    55555 by Ray C.

    22222 by Kim D.

    55555 by Wesley C.

    55555 by Mike C.


  • Nikhil R.Superb collection of craft beers. Great take on modern bar food. Try the Chicken souvlaki flatbread. Beer selection is too intimidating, best to ask the bartender for recommendations as per your taste

    55555 by Nikhil R.


  • ThePurplePassport.comWhether it’s a draught, a bottle, or a rare vintage ale, we always find a beer to love. And we never skip on the food menu either—with comfort food classics like mac 'n' cheese sticks and disco fries.

    55555 by ThePurplePassport.com


  • Paul K.Everything here is the best. Always. But watch out for Friday and Saturday nights. It's standing room only and totally rough. Check out Drafting Table up the street if you're looking for more space.

    55555 by Paul K.


  • Joey M.Ask for Eddy. She'll take care of you and she's got opinions on beers that are honest and awesome.

    55555 by Joey M.

    55555 by Rachel

    55555 by Dara F.


  • BrooklynBoyOA beer drinker's trip to DC isn't complete without a trip to ChurchKey!

    55555 by BrooklynBoyO


  • Mario S.Try the beers!

    55555 by Mario S.


  • JennOne of my favorite brunches in the city. Reserve a table in advance and if space is tight call and ask to be placed at the Chef's bar overlooking the kitchen. The homemade donuts are a must.

    55555 by Jenn


  • Josh P.Good luck with your dating and your networking.... I just wanted a burger. Peace.

    33333 by Josh P.


  • Tara C.Best gluten free restaurant in DC. They will gladly alter any dish, have a separate GF bread plate (with delicious surprises), and pages of allergy-free beers. Servers very knowledgable, too!

    55555 by Liza

    55555 by Andrew


  • Tasting TablePair a brat burger, topped with beer-braised sauerkraut and Emmentaler, with a pint of Kentucky Breakfast Stout:

    55555 by Tasting Table


  • Men's Health MagThe Brät Burger–a mix of veal, ground beef, and pork–lends this burger its signature bratwurst flavor. It's a meaty, porky meld that's topped with beer-braised sauerkraut and Emmentaler cheese.

    55555 by Men's Health Mag


  • DiegoDon't bother going there if you have a foreign ID. The stupid troll at the door does not know what they are

    22222 by Diego

    33333 by Joey M.

    55555 by Southern Living


  • Rheanne W.Order the cookie and confection plate. It will CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

    55555 by Rheanne W.


  • Brunch and the Citymaybe the best homemade donuts in town -- there is a lot to love about this brunch but it can be tough getting a reservation. While mimosas are good, try the brunch punch to mix things up a bit!

    55555 by Brunch and the City


  • Frank R.Awesome, I mean awesome tap beer (~50) selection, cool bar scene with good food to boot. Strongly recommend when in DC. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)

    55555 by Frank R.


  • Washingtonian MagazineWhat to get: Pork loin with greens and eggplant; cavatelli with roasted chicken and chicken-skin cracklings; hake with beans and corn; grilled skirt steak with puréed potatoes and mustard greens.

    55555 by Washingtonian Magazine


  • John K.I don't understand why they're putting tomatoes in their salads in January. More than a few things have gone downhill here since the place became overrun by tourists and suburbanites.

    33333 by John K.


  • Amaya R.Chicken & Waffles!

    55555 by Amaya R.


  • Bitches Who B.Bitches say B! While Churchkey is our fave spot for beers, bar food, and even dessert, we’d suggest you opt for Birch & Barley over its upstairs neighbor for brunch.

    55555 by Bitches Who B.


  • John M.This is THE place to be if you enjoy beer. Well over 500 beers to explore and enjoy

    55555 by John M.

    55555 by Bitches Who B.

    55555 by Lynn P.


  • Phil B.Excellent brunch, the Fried Egg BLT might shave a few days off your life, but it may just be worth it-- fried egg on a pretzel roll with a pork belly and arugula.

    55555 by Phil B.


  • Ty B.Snifter? Hardly know her.
