Great atmosphere, cozy, a little better than what you’d expect from a typical cookie-cutter Irish pub. The things that kicked it up to excellent are: 1) we went for lunch on a game day when several soccer games were going on but we still got...More

Was in town for Army-Navy weekend. Had a private party of 150 people here. Staff was excellent, food was phenomenal and the atmosphere great. Walking distance to many hotels, subway and sights. Highly recommend when you are in town.

Stopped for dinner tonight, what a treat. We were seated right away, a cordial server, Jill, greeted us. After taking drink orders we finally decided what to eat. Our dinners were delicious! Portions were plentiful, & I could substitute a salad for fries. The pub...More
