My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. While there, we decided to try brunch at Tunnicliff's Tavern just across the street. Our visit didn't disappoint. Great food, excellent and friendly service, great atmosphere and some great beer on tap. The only complaint (and it's really not a complaint) is that there weren't many choices for local beer. Add a few more local selections and there wouldn't be a reason to eat or drink at any other pub/tavern in the neighborhood. All in all, an excellent visit and we can't wait to drop in again.

Tunnicliff's has been around for ages. A popular brunch spot directly across the street from Eastern Market, most people will visit Tunnicliff's at least once during their Washington tenure. The location, cheap drinks, and reputation must be what keep people coming back. Food is mediocre; smoked salmon is hot pink and second-tier grocery store grade, bacon and fries are over fried, and pancakes lack fluffiness. The kitchen is slammed due to its popularity; be prepared to wait for your meal. Service is friendly if overburdened. Space is typical noisy crowded pub with music playing too loud. This place is a has-been, and not what I want when I think of Sunday brunch.

I love coming here with my family, even when there is a crowd we get amazing service, we really come a lot for brunch. I would have to say that if you get the Egg's Benny get the Normal one, the crab is good too. Everybody there seems to get it and love it, make sure you specify how you want your egg poached! I always get mine Medium. The potato's are amazing and always good. I also would suggest the Burger with the Fried Egg, Chicken Sandwich, and their Simple Breakfast Platters.

After having read a few reviews I decided to stop in during one of my Eastern Market butcher trips. I'd have to say that this is one of the worst places I have ever eaten at in my entire life... I've spent a lot of time on the road and eaten at some real dives but this place takes the crown. I ordered eggs benedict and my wife ordered a southwestern omelette w/ white toast. After waiting for 20 minutes the food finally came out (even though they weren't very busy). One of the eggs was over poached and had a solid yolk and the other was undercooked with very runny whites. The canadian bacon was a thick slice of ham that looked like it was cut off a block of spam with a terrible tasting stale english muffin. To top it off the hollandaise sauce looked chunky, greasy, and not freshly made. My wife's omelette was stuffed with overcooked peppers and a gratuitous amount of low grade processed cheese. I could tell by the huge pockets of yellowish grease that were pouring out. To top it off the waitress asked my wife and confirmed on two separate occasions that she wanted "WHITE" toast but was still served Rhye toast. We asked for our check immediately after taking two bites of our food and even though our waitress noticed right away we were served the wrong toast (and none of our food was touched...) she still left the toast on the check... It was the worst $30 I've ever spent on the worst food I have ever eaten. I do not advocate fast food normally, but I would have killed for some McDonalds to leave a better taste in my mouth. $30 for such a terrible brunch is down right criminal... Eastern market is right next to this place as well so why are the ingredient so awful?
