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 a nice seat right away and it was pretty quiet considering the crowd. The perfect pub background noise! 2) the food menu is decent and the food was even better that expected. Shephard’s pie, standard dish and hard to mess up but it was really good! Bacon chocolate chip banana pancakes! Shut. Right. Up. They were outstanding. I wanted desperately to finish them all but I just couldn’t. 3) really nice drink menu, old fashioned was delicious. Minor misses for us: mimosa was a little weak, and the shepherds pie comes with a quinoa kale salad in a little jar it looks like overnight oats. It’s beautiful but didn’t really accompany the shepherds or well, could just be me. :)

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 was pretty full but the noise level was really good. We sat & talked a while without straining to hear each other.
Can’t wait to return to try more menu choices.

We had a super meal before going to a concert -- the service was good. The place is a wee bit noisy, but it is an Irish pub! Lots of atmosphere, and the pints were perfect! Great location!

It's right off the speed line and a great place to stop for a great Guinness and some yummy food. Feels like you are walking into a pub in Ireland and there's always a soccer game to catch on tv!
