Authentic Irish Pub

Love this place. The food is great and the service was outstanding. There were 9 of us and the young woman waiting on our table was attentive, friendly, and efficient. The corn beef and cabbage was a hit as was the fish and chips and wings.

This place was packed. A 40 minute wait but have no fear. Plenty of Guinness and even live music to pass the time. I was alone so decided to eat at the bar to shorten the wait. The experience was even better. A good Irish pub with even better food and a lot going on.

This place is filled with layers of history. I'm fairliy certain there's plenty of politicians that can be spotted having a meal here. There's plenty of seating from small parties by the bar to big semi private rooms. My party was seated immediately upon walking in. They were very friendly. As for the service, it took them 3 tries to... More

I had a smoked Irish salmon sandwich. It was outstanding. And the bartender was excellent. Always knew when I was in need of a refill and very pleasant.

The Dubliner is a must for me when I visit DC. They have an incredible staff who treat you like a regular! The Bread Pudding and the Irish Coffee are the perfect ending to the day whether I am on business or just enjoying the area.
