Ok so our burgers were a little undercooked but the music was loud so I assume the waiter misheard us. The beer was good and I love the decor.

I loved this place from the first time I walked in. I actually came here 3 times during my week stay in DC. The food was simple and tasty. The drinks are straight forward and strong. My kind of joint. The best part is the inviting atmosphere.

This place was recommended as a place to find a good pint of Guinness. I was not disappointed. The food is traditional pub grub, but it is worth a visit for the beer.

Had a promo of whiskey shot & beer, for eight bucks, with fish & chips and salmon bites, all tasted great. Not a place to know ppl, but nice to hang out. Reasonable cost.

Had a good beer and reuben sandwich here for lunch. Only disappointment was that I was in the mood for fish and chips but they had run out of fish. Very traditional look of an Irish Pub.

Absolutely terrible service. Do NOT GO THERE The bar lady was obnoxious, disrespectful and down right rude. As an Irish person it was by far the worst Irish I EVER went to. This does not represent Irish bars in Ireland. She was rude and did not respect Irish culture in the slightest. DO NOT GO THERE

I met some coworkers here for lunch, and we all really enjoyed it! They have an awesome shepherd's pie, but everyone seemed to like their own food, too. We were there sort of between lunch and dinner, so we were some of the only people there. Service was friendly, food was awesome. So I'd recommend it!
