A Casual Over 45 Birthday Venue.... Decent Food and Near the Water ?????

I'm celebrating a birthday and want to have non rushed drinks and light fare for about 25 - 30 people. Can anyone suggest a nice venue in DC, preferrably near the water. Parking would be a cherry on top. I'd like more than just "bar" food. An outside patio would be terrific.

  1. What about the tower deck at Cantina Marina? It's not generally a place that I'd recommend for "over 45" but I think you could have that open air deck all to yourself, the food is respectable (as in I wouldn't go for the food, but I think it's probably better than most bar food), it's on the water and parking isn't too bad.

      Another vote for Cantina Marina.

    2. I've heard mixed reviews on the food, but if you are willing to venture to Virginia, Indigo Landing is on the water - ON the water, really - with great views and parking.
