    You have to order food on app-- and they try to get you to tip 20%? Food is mediocre. Service very slow.

    Our server was the worst. We opted for outdoor seating and she forgot we were outside and it was blazing hot. No water. When she finally did come out almost 30 minutes after seating us, we asked about the restaurant week menu and she said she had never tried it, turns out - the menu was just the food already on the original menu just packaged in a 3 course - she goes inside to ask someone about the menu and again - does not return for quite sometime. She came back and took our order and I never received my appetizer, and the fish was not good. I couldn't send my food back because the serve literally had her purse on and a cigarette in hand and she left! Realizing that no one was coming outside, I went inside to bring my food back to the kitchen and ask what is going on. The staff did not know there was a party outside, but took my food and thankfully came outside with some water and offered us a free drink. While I appreciate the comp, I will not be returning to this restaurant - the service was terrible and I did not enjoy the food.

    First time to Blue Jacket and we were very happy we discovered it. Started with tater tots that were the best we’d ever had. Following the tots, I had the fish and chips. The flaky and crunchy fish was awesome. It even came with a great tasting Cole slaw. We enjoyed the ordering system with the QR Code. Drinks were also great. Highly recommend the Spicy Bloody Mary. Price was reasonable.

    The food and drinks were great. The service wasn't great at all. The hostess was rude and not friendly at all. You are told to order using a QR code or you can wait for a waitress. We waited, but no one came so we had to flag someone down to help us. She ended up being extremely friendly and great, but just wish we didn't have to ask her to help us. The food came out quickly and the meal was great. It was just hard anytime we needed something because we continued to have to flag someone down or had to wait a long time. Not sure I'd go back even for the great food since the service wasn't the best. It was also a hot day so they said their air conditioning wasn't working well and they had to use back up air. But it was HOT. So hot that everyone was sweating and complaining.

    Bluejacket never lets me down. Our server was fantastic and she did an excellent job or regularly checking back to make sure everything was perfect. The food was delicious, we went for the fish and chips, grilled cheese, and loaded tots. IPA’s here are always on point, and so are the others. My only disappointment for the night was that they no longer carry the Mexican Radio stout. It was always one of my favorites, but luckily I still have 750 of it tucked away for a special occasion.

    Mexican Radio will be back in late August/ early September! Thank you for all the kind words!

    Hostess was extremely unfriendly but rest of staff were great and food tasted excellent. Appetizer arrived after meals which was frustrating but they proactively removed appetizer cost from our bill. Beer was tasty and my family had a nice time.

    Another great visit to Bluejacket. Visited after the Nats game on Father's Day with my wife and two boys. We all had great meals. Started with the (should be world famous) tater tots, and then I had the shrimp sandwich, wife had grilled chicken salad, one boy had the mac and cheese, and the other had the grilled cheese. All 4 meals were great and the chips were perfect too for dipping in some malt vinegar.

    Food good, beer great, staff/manager terrible. Had reservation and asked to be moved to a different table (too small). Was told all the many (at least 8-12) empty tables are “reserved”. Had drinks, apps, meal and the whole time, nobody showed up for those “reserved” tables. We had to rush to eat our food in the meantime due to the size of the tiny table. Addressed this with the manager and she could not care less. She gave a vague apology, said she “just got there” and if she was there she would have us no issue with us moving tables and that we should have put in our reservation request that we want a booth. It’s a shame I added a tip before the meal even got brought out. Suggestion: bring cash to tip after the fact instead of tipping as you digitally put your meal in (no waiters/waitresses at this place) in case your service was trash.

    The Breakfast Burrito wasn’t bad but would have ordered something else. The rice and tortilla was too much starch for me. The home fries and cocktail were both good. Nice looking place for casual dining. I didn’t try the beer but there were lots of fans ordering in and to go. The patio fills up fast on a nice day. I’ll definitely come back and try something different to eat.

    I can see why some people would be bothered by the ordering process if they weren’t aware of it before hand. We read reviews so we knew what to expect, which helped. On the whole, we liked the process. It allowed us to pace our meal. Drinks and appetizers first. Then when ready we ordered our mains. It worked really well. No searching for a server when you want something else. That said, service was still great and they checked to make sure we were doing well often. In terms of food and drink….old fashion was excellent, margarita was ok, beer was really good, food was delicious. We had the big train burger, pastrami sandwich, pub style Mac and cheese, and Bavarian roast chicken. Everyone loved the meal.
