Great Sports Bar!!!! Have been here a few times, they have an outside deck with two TV's and atleast 20 more inside. Beers are cold and can enjoy a cigar outside. Late night food is also available.

Was informed of this establishment by the front desk staff of a nearby hotel and was not disappointed. I order wings, which happened to be 1/2 off this night, and found them to be well flavored. The bar also offered a nice selection of draft and bottled beers. The service was also spot on. Would definitely stop back if I... More

Two adults and 3 grandkids. 4 meals were only half ate. Granddaughter did say the chicken fingers were good though. It had decent reviews in yelp, but I wouldnt go back. The positive though, great service, friendly & happy servers. I would go back for a drink, but not food.

Got a bunch of crazy looks from the employees. Made sure to tip (as I usually do)...I feel in these situations people assume I won't tip. The dips were alright, buffalo dip and crab dip. I thought they tasted like straight up cream cheese but my friends liked them. Didn't like them too much because there was plenty left over.... More

Great brunch menu with excellent service. The staff is very friendly so I was in the area for 4 days and ate here twice. I will be back the next time I am in the area.

We booked a shuttle to the Redskins game on Sept. 22 with Crystal City Sports Bar (we're from Canada), got a hotel close by, and showed up on Sunday morning to a bar just buzzing with patrons already. Got street parking close by, easy access. We found out we got a great, hearty brunch as part of our shuttle package,... More

Typical Bar Foods, Burgers, Wings, Fries, Onion Rings and other items such as Pork, Steak, Chicken Plates with the fixings. 3rd floor is full of TV Screens that can confuse anyone as many games playing at same time and scores...

In some ways a typical sports pub - except the staff and the food pricing/portions are better than average. Every time I visit here I am always surprised. The staff works hard to hospitable, and the service is good without being pushy.Take some friends and have a great evening!

I sometimes come here to watch the NFL games because the prices are great, and food is reasonably priced. The pub is about three levels so it's completely capable of handling large crowds. Parking is easily available across the street, but plan accordingly since it gets busy. I would also suggest you make a reservation or come early if you... More

We went here 3 times on this trip and each time was very good: all food was well-prepared (the "best deal in town" which is a filet with potato and veg was delicious, cooked perfectly and so tender. The servers were attentive and friendly, and had a good handle on the menu. Jocelyn was superb ...take note, Mr Manager! The... More
