Hope it's not too annoying to send out another steakhouse question, just ignore it if it is, please....

I've got some visitors coming later this month, and I'm thinking this might be a nice place to go after their tour of the Capitol. The group includes my very elderly but quite fit-for-her-age and adventurous, but hard-of-hearing, grandmother. I've never been, we're not really big steakhouse types (but everybody appreciates steak), and a main reason I'm thinking of going is because of the view (so not really considering other steakhouses). I also think a full dinner *might* be more food than this group will really want, so maybe just going for happy hour and appetizers would satisfy us.

If any of you have thoughts or advice on their happy hour, including how crowded or loud it gets (on a weekday evening), whether we'd get to see a great view of the Capitol, etc., whether we should just splurge on dinner (or not) -- much appreciated. (Note that while we would all prefer great food, in this case the overall experience is going to be more important -- and I actually probably have a good sense of many of your opinions on the food itself, already, from reading previous threads -- not that ordering suggestions wouldn't be welcome, of course.)
