The Tombs name was derived from noted author and poet T.S Elliot with his poem “The Cat about Town”. Located in the heart of Georgetown near the proximity of Georgetown University, The Tombs, a combination of a neighborhood restaurant and historical bar, is frequented by college students because of their affordable pricing, It’s also known as a place after mass for brunch on Sunday mornings. This local landmark has been open since 1962, and is undoubtedly the best place in Georgetown!
Eats & Drinks
Eats of this Georgetown eatery include their specialty Porterhouse Porkchop entrée that includes mashed potatoes, Swiss chard, topped with a flavorful wild mushroom sauce. For drinks, there are over 30 kinds of wine from chardonnay to sparkling wines and everything in between. The Tombs offers the best variety of flavor and taste at an affordable price. There is also a fixed price for groups that includes an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. The food is locally grown in Virginia by the Clyde’s Farm Program giving all the dishes a fresh taste.
The Tombs ambiance includes sports memorabilia such as pictures and crew paddles, baseball bats, and pennants from Georgetown University. The walls of the restaurant are surrounded in exposed brick wall to accentuate this classic but historical style. Vintage style glasses are set on tables, while antiques furnish the surrounding space and enable customers to enjoy this homey but local favorite. The tombs also keep their own history tradition by using the original wine list from 1789.
