The Birchmere is a great spot for seeing some of your favorite musicians and singers at a very reasonable cost. It is quaint and comfortable setting that allows you to feel upfront and comfortable with the artists. The drinks are plentiful, the food is ok, and the staff are courteous and accommodating. No need to dress up or down, wear your best jean's or your favorite sun dress. High heels are not recommended due to the graveled parking lot- of course that is your call. The restrooms are much to be desired but you can take care of those matters before you go. Have a great time!

This is one of the top music venues in the DC area and much more intimate than most. Seating is at tables only, usually general admission. There is a decent menu with several vegetarian options, excellent selection of beer and wine. Prices are moderate. The only annoying thing is they charge for water. We've seen many extraordinary performances there. The place seems to inspire artists.

Very cozy place. There are no bad seats. Arrive early so you can eat and pay your check before the show begins as they turn off the lights when the show starts. Very good venue for concerts. Ticket purchase does not include food. Food is moderately priced. Very diverse food selection. Great customer service.

I’ve only been here once to see a band that I adore. The acoustics are some of the best in the area and it’s a really intimate sound space. Sound wise I would give them five stars, but most shows also include dinner. Dinner is a little pricey and lacks finesse. I asked to make some substitutions on my dish and I was told no. Overall it’s a great place to see a concert, but I would maybe eat before hand.

I've seen 4 shows here and I love this place, there's barely a bad seat in the house and I like the bands they get. I look forward to my next time there. Some reviews speak to how great the food is, but personally, I think the food is mediocre at best and this is why I give them 4 stars instead of a full 5. On the positive side though, they are generous with their wine pours.
