I have to say, this place is expensive. But the food is worth the price tag. We had soups (Maryland crab, lobster bisque) and they were very tasty. We got the sea bass and the red snapper. Everything tasted fresh. Good presentation too. Our server was a bit clumsy but was very attentive. This restaurant also has a nice view... More

Marcus took excellent care of us while we were there. The food was great, our drinks never became empty and the management was sure to let us know that they were there if need be. All around great experience and would definitely revisit!

I'm from Long Island, New York. We have great restaurants. My husband and I eat out often. I believe Maryland has a different definition of service. We visited on 12/29/16 with another couple. We own timeshare in National Harbor. We found this place to be slow. They had no Stella beer left. They had no filet mignon left. They had... More

we went on a Saturday night at 8:30 pm for a group of 10 people. the service was TRRRIBLE, very slow and chaotic. The prices are also very expensive and when coupled with the terrible service this is not worth your time. the capstone of the evening was that when the food was served, one of the fish entrees was...

I visited this restaurant with my college bestie a couple of weekends ago. The ambiance is wonderful. It is spacious and has a beautiful view of the water as the restaurant is right on the pier. There were lots of windows which provided great lighting from outside! Now on to the food. It looked like there were lots of great... More

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
