For the hungry Nats fan, there are plenty of reasons to leave your seat and grab a bite to eat.
There’s more to Nationals Park than cheering on the talented ballplayers and hoping to catch a fly ball, although these are great reasons to catch a game. Compared to other parks, this one puts food high up on the priority list: easy-to-read digital menu boards illuminate crave-worthy items at each concession stand and there's an emphasis placed on locally sourced food made from high-quality ingredients. Make sure to check out the full concessions guide before you go.
Thirsty? Try libations, adult juice boxes and brews
Nationals Park is full of options for craft beers and inspired cocktails. Venture to District of Cocktails in section 111, where you can enjoy a signature crafted creation. District Coolers serves refreshing adult-style juice boxes in section 109 and you can choose from a large selection of craft beers at multiple District Drafts locations around the ballpark. Also, make sure to sip the Earned Run Ale from popular Virginia-based brewery Devil's Backbone at the rustic Left Field Lodge, complete with craft brews and picnic tables located at the Section 301 lookout. Devil's Backbone also has its own concession stand in section 240.
Sample some only-in-DC favorites
Naturally, Nats Park offerings aren’t complete without the fare that made DC famous – crab cakes and half-smokes, DC's take on a hot dog. Get yours by way of three on-site Ben’s Chili Bowl locations (sections 109, 141 and 318). As the tater tots craze continues to take over the nation’s capital, See. You. Tater. is here to fill up hungry Nats fans with plenty of gourmet tots, including backyard barbecue and Chesapeake crab-inspired options. The tots-focused concession stand located near section 106 also serves up five different types of chicken wings. Additional local purveyors at the park include Rocklands BBQ (section 243), Dolci Gelati (sections 113, 235 and 309) and Jimmy's Famous Seafood (sections 114, 140 and 307).
Budweiser Brew House
Situated smack dab in centerfield, this popular hangout is open to all fans — no reservation required! Above the restaurant is a bar featuring premium drinks and local brews, as well as a view that can’t be beat.
Haute Dogs & Fries
A fan favorite that debuted at Nats Park in 2016, Haute Dogs & Fries are purveyors of gourmet hot dogs and sausages with creative toppings. Head to section 105 or 233 for creative sausages and sandwiches made with local ingredients and hand-cut Idaho fries with seven different dipping sauces.
Burger lovers keen on Shake Shack can get their fix outside section 240. The outfit's signature Angus beef patties and special Shack sauce attract legions of fans, and for good reason, so get there early.

You can have a helping of steak from a local fave.
Locals go crazy for Medium Rare, which will be doling out delicious steak sandwiches in section 105. Their fries and signature sauce are also an essential part of the meal.
