The prices are that of an NFL players salary. The quality of the food is average at best. The staff didn't seem concerned about my opinion and it is too much dress up for show. Nor enough effort or quality in the food or true Concern of the customers satisfaction. No Touchdown here. More like a fumble recovered by the... More

The food was consistently good and we ate here several times during our stay. Casual and family friendly with a mix of some after 5 business clientele. Great location, across from the Hilton.

They were flexible with the group as it arrived in parts over a half hour to 45 mins. span......and this was on a night when they were closing early for their employee... More

We ate at Joe Theismann's on a busy Saturday night. It was a great place to relax after sightseeing and watch college football. We had basic pub fair, but the chili special was delicious! 7 different kinds of meat--my kids are still talking about it!

A busy place. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Just across the street from our hotel so it was convenient. Reservations are recommended.

Reasonably priced, tasty food. I had the lobster bisque and caprese panini; both were good. I always get a little excited when I see halloumi on a menu so I may need to return to try the halloumi skewers.

I had the specialty margarita which was excellent. We also went their for brunch on Sunday and were not disappointed. There were several brunch specials as well as a... More

One this visit we just stopped in for dessert on the way back to our hotel after dinner out. It is right across from the Metro stop, so it is convenient no matter where you are staying in Old Town. The bartender was very friendly and helpful. She recommended the pumpkin cheesecake for cheesecake lovers and the molten cake if... More

Food sucked, over priced, not what your would think of "sports bar" food. Was told the shrimp was " right off the gulf". I should have known better. They were right out of a Gorton's box or tasted like that. Waited forever to get the check then another eternity to get the waitress to pick up the check. Not very... More
