Had a wonderful experience eating lunch with a glass of wine talking to John (general manager) about Washington, DC. Very friendly sports bar pub/restaurant with fantastic food. Burger with crumble Blue Cheese and hand made potatoe chips. NOT OUT OF A BAG. Can't say enough about food service, drinks , (wine) excellent server, delicious food. I'll definitely come here again.

Randomly found this place walking around seeing the sites. Service is quick and really friendly. The burger was excellent. There is a small bar to sit at and the patio was covered and well heated on the cold March day we were there. Would highly recommend as somewhere to stop after you're done walking around.

A good place to stop in for a breakfast or lunch. The scrambled eggs were well prepared , light and airy. The Belgian waffle was crisp yet moist on the inside. Good cooking.

We stopped in after visiting the National Archives. It is right behind the Archives and the service was efficient. We had a burger that was really good. The only down side was some inappropriate conversations behind the bar between some employees.

Stopped here after a long day. Had 3 boys aged 10 and up and myself. Good comfort food. Nachos were not good as the appetizer. But I had the Ruben and home made fries and craft beer on tap and it was perfect. Sat outside in the heated enclosed patio. Was just a little chilly at the end, but the... More

Went to Penn Quarter to see a BBall game and have lunch. Good food and many TVs all in one place! Two-story. We sat upstairs. This place is small but artfully arranged for a crowd. We had a Burger and a salad and beer on tap. Excellent service! They made sure the game we wanted to see was on where... More

It's a sports bar so don't expect peace and quiet. I haven't seen as many tv's in one place. Added to which each is showing a different channel. The food is large. Good selection of beers and not unreasonably priced.

Went to watch playoff football. Great tvs and friendly service. Food was fair but there was there was a putrid smell like a backed up toilet that kept coming on the first floor.

We were in DC for a Redskins game and spent an evening here watching college football and had great time. The bar wasn't too busy but had a nice chilled vibe of people enjoying sports. The setup is great with the number of TV's and how compact the room is, there are no bad spots to watch the game from.... More
