What a pleasant getaway. An absolute gem with very good food and excellent service. I had no expectation of the menu, thinking it might just be like an english country inn but the food was well presented and the menu offered many options.

Old Anglers Inn is the closest real food to the Great Falls Park. It is also on the upscale side, but they did not turn me away despite my sweaty and dirty hiking apparel, and there appeared to be other hikers there, too. If it...More

Going to Old Anglers Inn on a Monday night to celebrate college graduation with a party of 8 was just okay. It did make a difference when the manager was not there. Food was okay and service was slow considering there were few diners.

A most charming dining spot, the Old Angler's Inn has been immortalized in countless Washington D.C. novels as a romantic winter getaway, sitting before the fireplace and perusing the menu. It is equally glorious in the summer when the main action moves to the incomparable terrace.
