My husband and I like to frequent Senart's for their weekend brunch menu. Brunch is from 10-3 and you can get all you can drink mimosas for $15 a person. Unlike other restaurants bottomless mimosas, theirs are mostly champagne with a bit of orange juice....More

Much nicer inside than you expect! Shrimp cocktail, oysters, crab cakes, fish, steak, all were very good. Very good service and enough to take home for a late night snack!

We called it lunch but they called it brunch. Took a short walk from Eastern Market to Senart's in mid-afternoon to find a brunch menu. 3 of us enjoyed various Crab Cake options and the other had a very tasty omelette. Good service, too!

This is a very good place for drinks and/or dinner prior to an evening parade at the Marine Barracks, or just for drinks/dinner. I mention the parade because invariably, timeliness of service becomes an issue. We recently met another couple for dinner and it couldn't...More

Great food! Awesome hamburgers that are some of the best ever. But the chef is always trying new things. The brussel sprouts with bacon are divine- order them if on the menu when you go. Nice beer selection.
