While on a business trip, a colleague and I wend to the Crystal City Sports Pub for a late-night burger. To our pleasant surprise, we learned that all burgers are half-price on Mondays. There are a good number of draft beer selections as well and they are reasonably priced. I ordered their standard burger, which was excellent and included a... More

I visited this pub primarily for Happy Hour which runs from 4-7pm weekdays. Good chicken wings (half price); many TVs, many low priced appetizers to choose from. Parking across the street (free). Excellent wait staff; pleasant and prompt service. Go early during happy hour as it fills up quickly. Daily food specials are posted daily. All in all, a very... More

Very good sports bar, best in the south Arlington/Crystal City area. Almost give it 4 stars, it is about 3 1/2 in my book. 3 levels, and the top floor is the best if you want a lively/loud atmosphere for a sporting event. Average food, good sized portions. Good beer selection although I had hoped for more local brews on... More

Great restaurant/pub for business lunch in the Crystal City area of Arlington. The pub is a typical sports pub with sports decorations and a multitude of TVs showing various sports channels. Complimentary WiFi is also available. The service is great with very attentive and friendly staff. Considering the place is "just" a sports pub the food is very good -... More

We visited this Pub/Restaurant several times during our stay in DC and could not believe just how great it is. We first visited following us asking at our hotel for local places to eat and we were so impressed that we had to go back again. The place boasts some 100+ TV screens as well as pool tables, it is...

Burgers, beer, sports on the TVs and pool tables. What's not to like? All good stuff. The visit was spoilt by a waiter who developed a childish attitude to the amount we gave him for a tip.

All the food was very good and we were pleased with everything. With Heather's fantastic service, she made the evening. We were pleased with everything. Fast forward a few... More

It was a hungry Monday evening when Other Jim told Colorado Jim and me that we could get a gigantic burger for less than five bucks at one of America’s premiere sports bars. Our thrifty hearts almost skipped a beat. An early arrival at Crystal City Sports Pub enabled us to score a third floor table (hooray!), and it wasn’t... More
