A cross between a sports bar and hip place

Interesting place. Kind of a cross between a sports bar and hip place. I had a great pizza and a couple of cold beers. Recommended for an easy meal.

Had dinner here one night in June with my wife. We had off the menu mussels, lamp chops, shrimps and chicken. Food was delicious, staff were nice. TV was playing the football (soccer) womens world cup...great atmosphere TVs were knocked out during the rain and kept freezing...but that did not spoil the experience

We stopped at Barcode because of heavy rain in Washington DC that caught us by surprise. It was the first place we found and it turned out to be a good one. Cocktais were excellent (I loved the "Punch"). The food was very good as well (try the grilled calamari, the ceviche). Excellent place to a happy hour. Maybe it... More

Nice roomy place for happy hour. Friendly crowd. Drinks during happy hour are significantly less expensive, so I recommend checking out the times. We arrived prior and noticed the difference in price was about 50% less on our bill after the happy hour began. We ordered 2 types of pizzas (just okay), the calamari appetizer (grilled, not breaded), and the... More

Went here after work while in DC on business. All beer and wine and cocktails were 50% off. Not just the house brand, but everything. It is a fun, casual yet modern environment. Good wine for $4 per glass... can't be beat. The bartender was very nice. Music is a bit loud. The maitre d was planning for a large... More

$40 for Sunday Brunch with bottomless mimosas. The food is seasoned well and of good quality (shrimp, crab legs, grits, eggs, sausage/bacon--pork and turkey). The DJ is good as well. Be warned, ordering from the bar during this time is pretty expensive, even for DC prices. Definitely a good time.

We were staying down the road from this place, so we were very glad we came upon it. Fantastic atmosphere, meals and staff. Very friendly and happening place. Regular happy hours with half price pizzas...very popular.

We went here for a casual dinner on a saturday night. It's a quite hip-looking place but the atmosphere once you are inside is really nice and casual. There are a lot of large tables perfect for a big group of friends, and there are screens showing sports spread throughout. We each made our own pizza, my husband had some... More

Had dinner and watched the Redskins game Monday night. Bar was hopping and there are plenty of TV's to watch the game. Beer was cold and enjoyed both the wing and cheeseburger specials for 5 buck. Look forward to returning.
