Please note that the owners have changed the name from Eatonville to "Mulebone". The menu is essentially unchanged. The decor is also unchanged. Food has gotten even better!

This has been one of our "must have dining experiences" in DC for over 18 months. However the last two visits disappointed a little. The food was delayed (BUT DELICIOUS) and the tables and floor was dirty. After large parties, someone needs to clean the floor. Once a baby just basically through the food on the floor. The other time... More

I was disappointed to see that Eatonville has closed permanently. It was one of my "go to" places in D.C. but it looks like it no longer exists. boo-hoo

i enjoyed the atmosphere, staff, service and food equally well. The atmosphere is comfortable, especially on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The staff is very friendly. The service is very good. And the food is very tasty. Bueno!

We were recommended to go to Eatonville by a friend to try some delicious southern food. I just wish there were more surprises. Unfortunately the starters were the best thing, so mains felt a little boring. We ordered fried green tomatoes (highlight!), buttermilk fried chicken, polenta and mac and cheese. OK, the polenta was a disappointment but everything was very... More

First time going to this restaurant with some friends and will definitely be going back. The atmosphere is very cool, with a mix of trendy and classic art. I had the fired chicken with Mac and cheese and the green beans. YUM... we also had a couple pitchers of the Georgia Peach which was equally yum!

Friends took us one night for dinner. I ordered the fried chicken. It was pretty good but nothing to write home about, however the corm muffins served with dinner were outstanding. I would have bought them to take home if they sold them to go. Most everyone seemed to enjoy their meals, On the negative side, we had to wait... More

This is a book lover's restaurant, named after a famous author and across the street from an homage to another. The reason they are across the street instead of right next door is due to a fissure in their friendship. Part of the fun is learning about the authors so I'm keeping it intentionally out of this review. The food... More

I do believe that you would be hard pressed to find anything on the menu that would be anything other than delicious and filling. We were a party of seven who all had different choices, and eah of us was more than pleased with our selections. Among our hits were the fried catfish, the shrimp and grits, and the barbecued...
