The food was great and reasonably priced. If you like draught beer there were many choices. We enjoyed the Maryland crab cakes and the drinks were delicious.

While the service was good and the food was decent, the cost was a bit high for American fare. The location was convenient to the convention center, but came with a price.

The food sounds good in theory, but it's not. Cheeseburger egg rolls sounded great. They were dry and tasteless. The spicy ketchup added nothing. The sliders were also dry, though the pickle helped. The menu said they came with a boutique mayo...maybe, but there was a minuscule amount. Those two plates, one an appetizer, and four drinks cost $100. Seriously??

Came in late for one final drink after dinner, and despite not being busy and having at least three bartenders, we were continuously overlooked for service. Prices were steep for the average selection of drinks. If you're in the area late, it's an ok choice, but maybe consider other options first.

Service and food were...meh. If you're looking to avoid the crowds of the National Harbor and have a quiet conversation, this is the right restaurant. Otherwise it reminded me of an overpriced Applebee's. Really wish I could give a better review. But it doesn’t live up to it's potential.

We were staying a couple of nights at a nearby hotel and walked out to find a place for dinner. There are many restaurants at National Harbor but several had music playing and we didn't want to have to talk over music. The Public House also had music but we stayed anyway. The acoustics inside are terrible because it's a... More

What a great place for Sunday morning brunch. We were lucky and found meter parking right in front of the restaurant. Perfectly located near the National Harbor attractions. Everything we ordered was excellent. Prices were not bad. We ordered the crab and artichoke dip- this was by far the best we ever had. My daughter had the apple French toast... More

Went here for a birthday dinner with 19 other ppl thinking this would be a nice environment but it wasn't. The bartender barely acknowledge me and when he did he was rude wouldn't even place my change in my hands. Waited over a hr to be seated but never got seated, ask for the manager to help resolve these issues... More

The food is amazing. Three of group had a cold cut and I had a burger. It was very busy with a 15 minute wait but once we sat down we were greeted with friendly service. The food took awhile to prepare but with it raining outside the presentation and quality was worth the wait. Not only was the burger... More
