We took a trip over to the harbor and were so happy we decided to have lunch here. Our waitress Kewanna helped me make my food choices and she made excellent recommendations the crab cakes were very very good not much filler at all. Kewanna also provided excellent service. Not to mention after paying for our bill we had left... More

This was a first visit to National Harbor for my husband and I over the Thanksgiving holiday. On a recommendation from a neighbor, we made a dinner reservation in advance at McLoone's Pier House. Upon arrival, 15 minutes early, the hostess said she could seat us but asked if a raised height table was acceptable. Being a 60+ couple and... More

I was on a business trip to DC and a coworker suggested I check out National Harbor since I was staying just across the river. As I entered the area I was impressed by the modern look and vibe. I saw a sign that said McLoones, on the water, Happy Hour, and I thought this is the place for me.... More

We arrived shortly after they opened and got a wonderful table with a very nice view. It went down hill from there. We ordered an appetizer to share and 2 bowls of Lobster Bisque. The cost was very high and it must have taken almost 90 minutes to be served our soup. We asked the waitress for bread to go... More

I had dinner as part of a group of 12- which can be tricky at any restaurant. We had multiple rounds of drinks, appetizers, soup, entrees & dessert...the speed of service was truly amazing. We couldn't believe how quickly the food came out and how good it was...not amazing but definitely worth going back to. Everyone loved the crab dishes...crab... More

The National Harbor area has a lot of restaurants competing for the business and pleasure customers. The restaurant is located in a nice spot overlooking for pier. The service was excellent and the waitress assisted with understanding the menu and selections. The food is pricey and does not match the quality and taste. The seafood paella was too heavy with...

Great view as evening sun sets. Mixed seafood selection hit the spot with a nice crab cake. Good attentive service.

We sat outside on the patio and relaxed with a great view of the Potomac River and ferris wheel. The service is outstanding, and the salads are huge and delicious.

I loved this place. This was my first time going and the view is awesome. Only one mishap. The place was not extremely busy and it took almost 5 minutes before a hostess approached us. Not good. That was an initial bad first impression but the wait staff that assisted us for a large party was very attentive and was... More
