We found this restaurant near our hotel. Everyone was very friendly and helpful with knowledge about the area. We ate there twice many items to choose from and reasonable priced. I had the pulled pork and a burger both very good. Would highly recommend it if you are in the area. Glad we found your place.

My wife and I visited the Crystal City Sports Pub for Sunday brunch today. Heard it advertised on the radio and decided to try it. What a great find. Omelets made to order, ham carving station, pancakes, french toast, cheese Blintzes, fresh fruits, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, and more. Great service. Also a great atmosphere. Three floors of seating and... More

Just a very average effort in terms of a way too complicated menu, poor service and average food. The beers on offer are pretty stock standard with nothing standing out as a must have. The service was slow and the server went missing towards the end of the meal. We declined a second round of drinks and never saw the... More

I had an hour or so before my Friday flight at DCA and this place is on 23rd in Crystal City. I stopped in and noticed a buffalo chicken salad on the specials. It turned out to be pretty large, with lots of bacon and avocado. Spicy but not too spicy. Just the thing to fuel up before getting my... More

Every time I am in DC during football season, I come here to watch the games. The 100" screens on the 3rd floor are amazing! This time, I visited DC with the family and decided to come here for breakfast. Good call. We had pancakes, French toast, eggs benedict, and steak n eggs. Everything was great!

We ordered the strawberry salad, chicken sandwich, kids chicken tenders, spaghetti and chicken dinner. I ordered a local Port City porter beer with my dinner. My salad was... More

This is a nice , friendly place with bar food. They have lots of beer on tap and others in bottles. It's just a typical type place with friendly staff. It's a little pricey on weekends with even domestic drafts at about $5.
