You come to Moody’s in Edgewater for two reasons - their burgers and their fantastic patio. This spot has been around since 1959, and the atmosphere doesn’t feel like it’s changed much since then. The food menu is short, focusing on drinks and a small selection of sandwiches and burgers, all of which are solid.

But what makes Moody’s particularly special is the space. The patio is huge, with plenty of seating available, and surrounded by large trees and twinkly lights. If you’re here when it’s cold, though, the inside is cozy - it feels like a hunting lodge, with dark wood and two fireplaces. Whenever you’re here, come with a group and plan to stay a while.
