Colonel Shaw's Chicken Sandwich

Also tried the cheese bread and the fish tacos! Fish tacos were to die for and I don't normally like fish tacos. Cheese bread was a great app and the colonels chicken sandwich was more than expect with great fries! Great atmosphere and service was nothing to complain about. 5 stars! Thanks

Fried Green Tomatoes

Some of the best fried green tomatoes I've had in DC! They are just the right level of crispy and are perfect to enjoy with a cold beer or mimosa before your main meal.

Crispy Calamari

The first time that I tried Calamari was here during one of the Drag Show performances. I enjoyed myself and it was so entertaining! I was hooked on the Calamari, the visits started to become more frequent for me. Every dish that I have tried so far, was not a disappointment!

The Cuke

The Cuke Salad is the bizness. My taste buds are still doing their happy dance from last Thursday. I was craving something light and refreshing. My salad met and exceeded my expectations. I could not do anything but shake my head and say over and over again OH MY GOD, THIS IS SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!. Usually I don't finish all of my food so I have a meal for my dining pleasure when I get home. Not that day, as I finished my plate like it was the only meal I would ever eat again. The vinaigrette dressing was so scrumptious. I ate the second helping of the dressing like it was the nectar from the Gods. This may be my new best salad. Let me just say I have thoroughly enjoyed myself each and every time I come in to eat. I have had so many of the tantalizing entrees that they serve. Their hush puppies will have you levitating with happiness and joy. I am an old school love my nachos girl. Let me just say don't sleep on the nachos. The braised short ribs with Mac and cheese will give you an out of body experience. The Shaw Burger should have a song made to go with it. Have mercy that may be the best Burger that I ever ate. The pizza with the balsamic reduction glaze is so amazing. OK I have got to stop talking about the food because it is making me hungry just thinking about it. Can't wait until the next time I have to physically come in my office just so I can go back. When you come in please ask for Brendan who is the Director of First Impressions who I have loved from day one. He is the absolute best and he is more than a waiter. His Energy is so electric. We come as a group when we usually come in for lunch. I was so ecstatic to see him back last week after both of our enforced 3 month COVID-19 hiatus. I called just to make sure he was back so I could walk the 6 blocks to see him. The staff is the best at Shaw's Tavern. Here is what I will say, if you come in you will be sure to return over and over again. Tell Brendan his Aunt Connie sent you. That's right I have adopted him so you all be warm, welcoming and nice to my Brendan. Thanks for taking the time to live through my eating experience. YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY AND YOUR TASTE BUDS WILL THANK YOU.

Brunch Burger

Everything you want out of a really good brunch burger. One of those sandwiches that you can't just put down after one bite. Fast and hot as well.
