The temperture of the food needs to be consistent, my starch and vegetables were hot but the meat was barely warm

Service was ok, not as bad as some of the reviews I read on yelp, and the food was just ok too. Not the kind of dining experience I'd like to repeat. Plus, I got the impression that they aren't too fond of customers who come in with a Groupon - it was just the way the guy behind the counter sighed and rolled his eyes when I told him I had a Groupon. I wouldn't really recommend this place or go back.

I do not need or want to know how busy you were prior to my being there. I did not get the impression that my business was important. The owner(?) is not professional.

I could only order the whiting or trout, chicken or meatloaf. All the other items were either unavailable, such as the liver, or not useable on Groupon. I became very sick and could not drive home without stopping to go to the bathroom. Also, there was no toilet paper, sugar substitute, or towels in the women's bathroom. This place is a mess. I became

The fish was overcooked, too crispy and dried out to eat. We chose not to ask for a new batch because the wait staff had a bad attitude already and seemed overwhelmed.

I've been to the other two Levi's locations many times and loved the food and the staff was excellent. Not so at the 8th Street location. The serving staff was excellent, but the food was over-salted, and the older gentleman who seemed to be the manager was rude and dismissive. After receiving my food, I waited 10 minutes for him to appear to cash me out, though the staff went to the back 3 times to get him. He was unapologetic for the wait and displayed annoyance toward me.

Chow down on ribs, slaw and more at Levis Port Cafe, a down-home barbecue joint in Washington. Diners who avoid fat need to be careful, though, because Levis Port Cafe's menu does not offer low-fat options. Eat out with the little ones at Levis Port Cafe, and don't waste time scurrying for a sitter. Heading out with a larger party? There's plenty of space for big groups at Levis Port Cafe.

The restaurant also offers catering if you want to bring the flavors of Levis Port Cafe to your next party or event. Carry-out is also available for those who prefer to enjoy Levis Port Cafe's cooking from the comfort of their own home.

If public transportation is preferable, ditch the car and board the nearby stop at Eastern Market Metro (Blue, Orange). Drivers can find a space for their wheels on the street when dining at the restaurant's 8th St SE business.

Typical diners should plan to spend about $30 per person on Levis Port Cafe's moderately priced fare.
