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.

While on the hunt for Happy Hour oysters in DC, we discovered two possibilities within blocks of the Eastern Market Metro Station; Hank’s Oyster Bar and Senart’s Oyster Bar. We decided to try Hank’s out first. Our experience there was anything but welcoming due to...More
