Went in for a quick dinner and it wasn't overly packed - we were seated immediately. The taste of the food and the wait time for the food was decent. Open concept floor plan, made noise a bit loud. Service was poor, we watched staff stand and chat when there was obvious work that could be done. Wait staff was... More

What I love best here is the food and the patio during the nice weather. The atmosphere is always great. Been there a few times and I and my friends had never been disappointed!!! Love the grilled calamari and the sweet potato fries. Great drinks and plenty of tv's to watch a game. Give it a try!

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.
