Went there for a brunch on a Saturday. Was busy and the unlimited drinks has its appeal. The food was good. The only down side was the noise (music plus people).

What a great hang out spot with friends and family! The Staff was very nice during my visit. The prices are reasonable in which you have the choice of a la carte or the bottomless option with unlimited drinks. The restaurant is for adults only...More

Great place for brunch! Went here earlier this year for a friends birthday and it was great. The service was wonderful and accommodating to our large party. Overall a MUST go to place while in DC

Came here for a friend's bachelorette brunch and despite the unlimited drinks for $27, I wasn't utterly impressed with this place. This is how they lure you in: $27 for unlimited mimosas, bellinis, bloody marys, and sangrias and one entree. All of this has to...More

I went here for brunch. First thing is first, they need to figure out their hours. Online it says they open at 11am on weekends, but the posted hours on the front door say they open at 10:30am. The place was packed, given its location....More

I've always been to Local 16 for the bar scene, but was surprised at how nice the place is for brunch. During the day you can really enjoy the murals, wildflowers, and decor. Plus its one of the best value for unlimited mimosas/ bloody marys....More

I had heard that Local 16 was a great brunch spot as you really get bang for your buck - $23 brunch for one entree and bottomless drinks. Since it's a great price, I wasn't expecting the best brunch food I'd ever had but a...More
