We were walking from the Capitol to RFK Stadium and needed to get something we eat. We happened upon Turnniciffs and had a delicious Bloody Mary and brunch. The service was good and quick. The pub had the character of a neighbor place which we really enjoyed. We would visit again.

If you're visiting Eastern Market on the weekend this is a great place to stop in for brunch, the eggs benedict is really good and so are the bloody marys.

Ate here a couple of times during the week - including Christmas Day! Good vibe inside, enclosed heated patio for smokers. Great service - the food is mostly great. I had a crab cake sandwich which was good but didn't seem to contain much crab, however my super grilled cheese sandwich was wonderful. My husband had the steak and said... More

We went to meet friends here on Saturday night. We sat on the enclosed patio. While it was cold the heaters were on full blast. We ordered buffalo wings, a cheeseburger, calamari, and a crab cake sandwich. All the food was good except the crab cake. My friend said it was mostly filler. The buffalo wings were cooked to perfection,... More

Celebrating the Chesapeake, you can get Chesapeake eggs benedict, lovely, except just not hot, so might request that in advance because otherwise, a good dish indeed. Nice spot for brunch, good service, good food, pleasant atmosphere.

Once we were seated by a fairly abrupt hostess the service were superb. The food was nice but nothing to distinguish it and make it memorable. Atmosphere outside was fabulous but of course full and quite crowded because it was such a beautiful.of course we would have appreciated indoors more if it wasn't that we missed out on the good...

I spent a very pleasant evening recently at Tunnicliffs. The tavern was well decorated, the bar well stocked, and the staff well trained. I met Scott behind the bar, and he was a very genial host. My order of fish and chips off the appetizer menu was huge, tasty, and plenty of a meal. The draft beer was wonderful. I... More
