We stopped here based on a recommendation from our nearby hotel and found prices to be very reasonable for an urban sports bar.

Six of us stopped for brunch and were seated pretty quickly without a reservation. Meals are plentiful and good tasting. Service was okay and the price fair. Highly recommended.

We came back from Nats game Sept 27th to Embassy Suites and they told us about this place. Hubby went upstairs to room to get ready for dinner and I got two salads to go (one with shrimp the other with chicken). I ordered a beer while waiting. Not once did the bartenders attempt to talk to me. I was... More

A classy restaurant near King Street metro stop. I had a grilled pork chop with mashed potatoes, vegetables and sautéed apples. All were delicious with good presentation. My date substituted the waffle sweet potato fries which I tried and they were very good.

Theismann's Restaurant is a great place to catch a bite or a drink ... and it's right across the street from the Metro. It is especially good during happy hour (M-F 4-6pm) as there are great drink specials. We liked it so much we ate there twice during our trip to DC!

Fantastic service, get atmosphere, and delicious food. The grilled mahi-mahi with lobster risotto was amazing. I still am thinking about it after being home.

Chose this restaurant since close to our hotel, menu to my liking. Passed bar crowd to dining area with a few TVs tuned to football, baseball playoffs. Good wine selection, great menu with three specials also offered. I started with "spicy" crab gumbo which turned out to be hardly spicy at all, small amount of crab, brown sauce which was... More

You can always depend on having a delicious meal at Joe's. The service is great, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is "happening". Even though there are multiple TVs with all knds of sports events going on, the atmosphere is quiet enough to have a conversation with everyone at your table. Can't say enough good things about Joe Theismann's!
