AOL Travel Editor’s Review

You'll find the Old Ebbitt Grill on every list of the best D.C. restaurants, and for good reason—the establishment, which bills itself as the "oldest saloon in Washington", has been a staple of the D.C. political scene since it opened in 1856. The interior has lots of character, with a heavy mahogany bar, stately oil paintings and taxidermy-laden walls. The main points to be aware of at Old Ebbitt: It's only a few blocks from the White House; you'll need to elbow your way past hoards of tourists and politicos to get to the bar (worth it); and you can't leave until you've tried the oysters (what they're famous for).

  I visited for the oyster happy hour, a really good deal in a classy bar. By all means, go. A quintessential D.C. experience!
