The Harbor Cafe and Coffee

150 American Way

Reviews:
Bad, bad espresso. Bad steamed milk. Bad latte.
Fantastic service! I was staying at the Gaylord hotel for a conference. A group of us dropped into Harbor Cafe to get coffee for our team of 15. The owners were extremely helpful, accommodated our needs, then drove is to back to the hotel. We will spend a lot of time and money at Harbor Cafe this week. Thank you for delighting us! OH - the coffee was fantastic!
I really enjoyed the hospitality of the owners (Kim & Vijay). They were really family oriented and even assisted their employees in the day to day operations of the cafe. Nicole was so friendly she talked me into trying an avocado smoothie. I have to admit my first thought was "ewwwww". That was until I tried it. The mixture she used was very delightful and it had an almost honeydew melon flavor to it. It was very delicious and creamy. Not icy and extremely cold like most smoothies. I also tried a few other items on the menu. Hot chocolate with chili spice. Very rewarding with just a hint of heat. Thanks to DJ for the hot chocolate. I seen a black bean burger on the menu and was skeptic because I am a "meatatarian" but nonetheless decided to partake. I don't know what Kim did to make it taste so good but I would definitely order it again when in the area. Thank you to the Harbor Cafe owners and employees for such a joyful 1st experience at your establishment. Paul

Crab Cake Cafe

140 National Plz
Oxon Hill, 20745
Reviews:
Absolutely horrible. Fast food seafood. Worse than long John silvers. I can't believe I paid for this sh×t!. No flavor, limp fries, very disappointed. STAY AWAY!
I found this place while walking around National Harbor. I had the Crab and Shrimp Cake Sandwich with Old Bay Fries. It was very good. This is the first time I have been to a Crab Cake themed restaurant. They also have soups, salads, regular fries and other items but the main thing on the menu is Crab cake sandwiches. The prices are reasonable. Great place for Crab cake lovers.
The absolute best crab cake sandwich I ever had,the cake actually had real crab and lots of it. Not one anywhere in the country can compare so far in my experience Yes, this is a chain restaurant, but they sure do make a good crab cake. Good size, and will fill you up. That's was all I tried, though I wish I tried more.

Beijing Hunan Restaurant

6049 Oxon Hill Rd
Oxon Hill, 20745
Reviews:
I like this place they serve wine and beer a must on my list of places to eat at and they have liquor
A few peeps I know have mentioned to me that this Chinese spot in Rivertowne Shopping Center has super-fresh food, cheap drinks and is a good place to eat-in or carry-out. Not feeling cooking Thursday night, I stopped in and ordered some carryout. Honestly, the place looks like an old-school Chinese restaurant that you would see in a movie. Haha! I walk in and man is behind the counter taking orders--but the cashier space also doubles as the BAR! I mean, there are no bar stools or anything or anyplace to sit at said bar. But it is well stocked with everything from beer, to top shelf vodka, cognac and scotch. And each and erry drink on the menu is: $3.75. Needless to say, while I sat and waited for my order I slurped down a Stoli and Tonic with a lemon slice because they didn't have lime. The drink was quite heavy on the Stoli, and that was all good with me as I chilled and reveled on my $3.75 cocktail:) There were about 20 guests in the dining room having dinner and there was table service/ a waiter. I thought to myself that this would def be a place I would bring the hubs and kiddies for a casual meal--basically so I could take advantage of the drinks! :) So on to the food. Basically, it was just OK. Not bad. Just OK. We had the double-cooked pork, general tso shrimp, pork fried rice, egg rolls and barbecue spare ribs. The shrimp were probably the best item, but the portion was quite small. For Chinese in my 'hood I still much prefer Good East Carryout ( yelp.com/biz/good-east-c… ). But again, because of the deal on cocktails (which bumped this to 3 stars) I will likely give this place another shot for sit-down service.
My co-workers and I love this place, and it's a regular on the lunch rotation schedule. It's fast, the food is fresh, and there is no place that can beat its prices for the quality it provides.

Honestly, best Chinese food out here. The only reason they don't get a 5 is because they don't deliver. However, they are fast, and the food is great. A plus is, the lady in the front is very nice!

Potbelly Sandwich Shop

146 National Plz
Oxon Hill, 20745
Reviews:
We picked potbelly to grab a soft drink. When we noticed they offered milk shakes we were excited. The shakes were ok, nothing special. It was "cute" for them to put 2 tiny cookies over the straw, too bad the cookies were not fresh, very mushy. The menu wasn't exciting either. We grabbed our shakes and moved on.
Your typical Potbelly. I dropped by for lunch and found a longish wait but a worker with an iPad taking orders in the line. It seemed to worked and sped folks through the line. The crew behind the counter were luke warm at best. Probably jaded by the crush of rude convention attendees they must see on a regular basis. I was out in good time though with my sandwich. There are plenty of spots outside to eat if so inclined. Since it was a beautiful day, I scored an adirondack chair in the nearby main square overlooking the river.
Food was really good. I didn't care for the ordering process it is confusing for people who haven't ever been there. The shakes are really really good.

Bojangles

6135 Oxon Hill Rd
Oxon Hill, 20745
Reviews:
With a name like Bojangles I figured this place must have some kick'n chicken. Arrived after dark so couldn't really survey the surrounding area & layout, but it wasn't too hard to find with the trusty phone map. As I walked in the front door, by the looks of the place, my expectations started to waver slightly Completely empty save for a lone couple eyeing me between drumstick and biscuit bites. Didn't seem to be anybody behind the counter but I could hear them off to the side taking drive-thru orders. That's okay, I needed time to check out the menu board anyway. Standard fried chicken fare was the order of the day. An employee came to take my request with a glum look on her face. But she was friendly enough, took my order & money and I waited. I chose to dine in since the drive back was a long one. I found a place to sit, giving the shifty couple plenty of personal space to enjoy what was left of their meal. The tables, chairs and floor were clean which was a good sign. Within a couple of minutes my order was ready. Chicken breast and wing with mashed potatoes and corn. The chicken was good but not as flavorful as the golden crust might lead you to believe. The potatoes were bland even by fast food mashed potato standards. Should have tried the fries. For me this was a one time visit because of the name. Why? Because I'm not out this way often enough and just because.
I like the food! I prevent going in so I won't be upset with customer service!:)
I'm a fan of bojangles, I like the food and eat it from time to time, not too often since I don't usually do fast food. The food is what you would expect from a bojangles, it's the staff that never seems like they want to be there, have attitudes with customers and screw up orders because they don't listen and are too busy trying to get you to leave. Customer service doesn't exist here.

Rita’s Italian Ice

6243 Livingston Road
Oxon Hill, 20745
Reviews:
I love Rita's!!! This particular location is great. ALWAYS great customer service, ALL the staff are pleasant & cordial. I'm a tough customer to please, yet they never "bat an eye" PLUS they have Alex's Lemonade 95% of the time, which is by far the best flavor, but don't take my word for it because I'm bias towards lemonade flavors, just go and try yourself. You won't be disappointed!! They deserve your business.
Normally Rita's is a big treat. My grade is for No custard due to egg shortage. Serving ice cream instead! In the meantime, the company announced on signs in store they replacing their custard with soft-serve ice cream temporarily. A big disappointment.
I wasn't particularly happy the fact that this location.does not except Rita's gift cards, and they seem not to care to incorporate this

Flaming Grill Buffet

6051 Oxon Hill Rd
Oxon Hill, 20745
Reviews:
I don't have high expectations when it comes to buffets. They all pretty much serve around the same kind of cuisine, so I'm not even going to talk about food (which was good). I gave this place four stars because it's so cheap! Less than 8 bucks per head for lunch. Dinner and weekend prices are different of course, but the buffet selection is accordingly better. Nothing crazily spectacular, but an inexpensive buffet is always good to me.
Ok, where do I start? If I was to rate the restaurant on living up to its advertisement, I would give it four stars.. It is a Chinese buffet place with an astounding variety of food including a Hibachi grill that will cook to order. There is a large selection of desserts that your kids will thoroughly enjoy. The restaurant is clean with a pleasant neon ambiance. It is located in Rivertowne Commons shopping center perpendicular to the old Rivertowne Movie Theaters complex. I visited the restaurant on a Sunday at 12:00 pm to attend a family event. The place was packed! Large family groups and the after church crowd flooded the place. There were African-American, Latino, and Asian families in the crowd and they seemed to enjoy the food. The staff was friendly and provided a reasonable level of service considering the size of the crowd. If you are a fan of quantity over quality, this is your place. The price is reasonable $11.00 and $7.00 for adults and kids respectively for dinner You can sample food from every genre of American style food. However, on the quality side , you get what you pay for in quality. I would rate the food quality at 2 stars. It is equivalent to your neighborhood Chinese carryout fare. If you are a young family and looking to feed the family in a bright pleasant environment, I would you encourage you to go and enjoy yourself. My final rating is 2 stars for food and one additional star for their variety, neon ambiance and cleanliness.
Food is great for me. As it was same with Hibachi waldorf. But the only thing embarrased me is the way the chinese shift manager treated us. He asked us to transfer to another table in the middle of our eating time. The way he talked, very unprofessional. If i will be asked, i decided not to comeback to that place unless they fire out that guy.

Mid-Atlantic Seafood

6045 Oxon Hill Rd
Oxon Hill, 20745
Reviews:
This place use to be my spot! This is until a few days ago when I got food poisoning! and the time before that the food just tasted a little off. I don't know what's going on with them but they need to get it together. A few days ago I ordered the fried chicken, greens and macaroni and cheese dinner. The night I was eating on it I felt a little sick. I just thought me being pregnant and all I took too long to eat. But the next day when I ate the rest I threw it up, and kept throwing up and having stomach pains and diarrhea. And as I said earlier this was my spot but the past few times I've been they weren't tasting the same.
So, I had a taste for some soul food, and decided to check out Mid-Atlantic Seafood...how bad could it be? I got a veggie plate, with massive portions of collards, mushrooms, and mac & cheese. The only good thing was the mushrooms, which were very well seasoned and tasty. The collards didn't seem fresh, but were average for collards...I've had better, but definitely worse. The mac & cheese was horrid, and tasted like nothing more than watered down kraft mac & cheese. If it's not baked, it's not official mac & cheese, but could they at least use real cheese? SMH...I will not be spending any money here again.
Not feeling this location. I ordered a salmon dinner with cabbage and macaroni and cheese and the whole thing tasted bland... The salmon has too many peppers on top and and once again tasted bland... I usually go to the Tacoma park location, I might give this location a second try
