Diner had seafood type odor when we walked in. We were only getting a beer and milkshake so no opinion on meals. We left quickly because of odor (apparently they were experiencing drain problems). Server was considerate and helpful.

Enjoyed a great breakfast meal. Hash and eggs was very flavorful and reminded me of breakfast at my mom's. Staff was friendly and helpful. I try to stop here every time I come to Washington DC.
