Total Rating: 3.85
Food: 4, Price: 4, Service: 3, Ambience: 3, Accessibility: 5

Summary: Known as the “ Gathering Place on the Hill”, Tunnicliff’s is a neighborhood favorite pub-style restaurant conveniently located across the street from Eastern Market. With an outdoor patio that is shaded for summer and has gas-heated lamps for winter, this restaurant is always packed with people. The service is friendly but don’t expect a fine dining experience at this local joint. Menu includes comfort favorites like burgers, sandwiches, and pizza. Breakfast is also great here and check out the weekly specials. Closest Metro is Eastern Market.
This is a trusty go-to spot for me when I feel like doing a Happy Hour – but with better than the average “bar food”. The Super Grilled Cheese is one of my favorites, but can be on the greasy side. The pancakes are better than any other diner I’ve been to and are quite filling.

Seasonal Fruit Pancakes with Maple Syrup
