Lots of good Irish beer. The place is always full of customers. The food was good; however, some plates were better than others. The fish and chips were okay, but I found a little too much breading on the fish. The crabcake was much better. One of our group said the corn beef and cabbage was... read more

Good location. Very charming, cute place. Outdoor seating although I sat at the bar. John the bartender was very nice along with all wait service. I would recommend.

This restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel and was recommended by the bell staff when we asked for a good place for a late lunch and we weren't disappointed. We sat at the bar and enjoyed talking to the bartender and owner. Loved the Beet Salad and the burger was very good too. We returned later in... More

Great Irish food & drinks for dinner & hearty choice of Irish food for breakfasts. Travelled in August so to sit outside for dinner in the evening was very pleasant and relaxing.

I am having a hard time rating this restaurant because of the mixed emotions I have regarding our experience. After a long day of walking around DC my husband suggested this restaurant because he had a great meal here a couple of years ago on business and he knows I love Irish food. I am 6 months pregnant so it... More

It was crowdy, but in the dining section not to noizy. We had a very good stew and roasted chicken. The chicken had to be sent back because it was undercooked, but the second time it was prepared well.

This is an Irish pub and it delivers in the whiskey and beer categories--the lists of both are long and complete. Plus there's entertainment in the evening and lots of Irish revelry. You could have a great time drinking and celebrating with friends. Heck the Merlot is good, too, if you prefer wine. I'm Irish and was looking forward to... More

In all my years staying nearly next door, I have never eaten at the Dubliner. We had lunch outside the Pub and it was delicious. Big menu ranging from burgers to Irish favorites like stew. And of course they happen to have a large assortment of beverages to wash it down.

Visited the Dubliner restaurant and bar recently. Great selection of beers and good mixed clientele. I had the Irish stew which was excellent and my wife the roast chicken which she also enjoyed. The waitress and bar staff were attentive and helpful. Would certainly recommend this bar.

The first night of my trip, I ate here. I had the blackened mahi mahi salad. The food was great. They had 3-star IPA on tap, so it was also a great addition to the meal. The place filled up by 9:30, with lots of fun folks who sang along with the singer that entertained us. The bar staff were... More
