The food's really good, so we have to account for the full bottomless package costing $55 somewhere. At that price, we'd expect options a little more exciting than a single mimosa flavor and a bellini (and a Bloody Mary, though we're not counting that).
Avoid breakfast before this one. With a full menu of all-you-can-eat options, you can treat yourself to a day's worth of meals in a single seating, and the portion sizes are large enough to make sharing painless. You can also walk up to the omelette and waffle station, though it's really not worth the effort unless you're just really curious what a bubble waffle is. (But seriously, just save the steps and order another fried chicken and waffle.)
Beyond showing an incredible patience with our menu deliberations (pro tip we did not heed: if there's a bottomless food menu, just order everything and figure it out later), our server snared us a round of blue mimosas she caught us eyeing -- turns out they were terrible, but we had to try! -- and kept supplying us with refills well past the two-hour limit.
While dining amongst decorations (including a penny-lined floor) honoring the president who won the Civil War is a very DC experience, it makes for an odd juxtaposition with a Sunday DJ. It further isn't helped by some basic design flaws, like an uneven bench that caused one bruncher to slowly drift onto another.
Boardwalk tried to win our hearts with service by the bottle and an array of mixers, but at $35 with a pretty strict (90-minute) time limit, you quickly realize you're paying for the Wharf.
We're never gonna contest a $20 bottomless setup with bottles of champagne and mixers on the side. But at Union Pub, drinking champagne's actually the healthy, sanitary choice
We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
