We stopped in here on a recent trip to DC. Both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our burgers and the happy hour drink specials, but the fries were to die for!!

This review is definitely overdue. I was in Georgetown for a jazz show and didn't want to wait and eat at the show. My fiend and I were literally walking until we found a restaurant that looked interesting. We initially walked past this place. I looked back and was like burger and bar, how can anyone possibly mess up a... More

The service was great, I was shopping in Georgetown and stumbled upon this place. The burgers were great and so was the service! Definitely choose the sweet potato fries, they were delicious!

Thunder has good salads and burgers. It is located in Georgetown. Friendly service. Hip vibe. Good place for a beer or glass of wine.

Always head for here when I'm in DC. Love their choice of burgers...Elk, Bison, Tuna etc. And I love being able to sample lots of different beers in a small portion.

This is fairly decent for a restaurant in a "train" station. It's situated far enough away from the hustle and bustle so a bit quieter.

Stopped in twice on a snowy few days in Georgetown. Thunder has that nice, non-chain "vibe", excellent and copious beer and burger options. Good mixed crowd - college students on a date, yuppies after work, grown up tourists (like myself) all having fun.

My co-worker and I were shopping in Georgetown and decided to stop in and eat at this quaint restaurant. We started out with the crawfish & crab dip appetizer which was really good. And then ordered burgers which were delicious. The food comes in generous quantities and the wait staff is very attentive. What a great find in Georgetown!! We... More

The atmosphere is a football baseball TV bar with typical burger food. Food is plenty when you order. This is definitely not a vegetarian place. but it is tasty and the service is friendly and fast.
