Walk-in Guests:

If you want to hang out with us on a whim, come on in! If we can’t get you a table in the dining room, which is often the case in prime time, we serve the full menu at the bar and Kitchen Counter. You might have to wait for some seats to open up, but the turn time is normally not all that long.


Our online reservation system is Seat Me, or call us at 703-539-8400. We use a Talk to Text response system which is actually more efficient than being put on hold. Please don’t hang up – listen to our entire 20 second message, then leave a voice message with your reservation request or question. We see all messages as texts in real time and will respond within 10 minutes. If you are calling from a cell, expect a quick text back and a continuing text dialog. If you are calling from a landline, expect a return call. We monitor messages between the hours of 10am – 9:00pm Monday through Friday and 11am – 900pm Saturday and Sunday. Thank you!

Dinner:  reservations recommended, but walking in works too (see info above).

Mon- Thurs: 5pm – 10pm
Fri – Sat: 5pm – 11pm
Sun: 5pm – 9pm

Lunch:  reservations recommended, but walking in is welcome and accommodated

Wednesday, Thursday & Friday: 11:30am – 2pm, remaining open throughout the afternoon for open seating with a snack menu.

A note on parking….

Parking in front of Clarity fills up fast, but we have another parking lot just steps away. Take a left from East St onto Church St and take another quick left (200 ft) at the Clarity sign into the lot. Park, walk across the bridge straight into the building lobby door and into Clarity.
