Really Good Food

We were looking for a breakfast restaurant, the clerk at the hotel gave 2, next each other, a diner named Bob & Edith's and the CCSP. B&E is your typical diner. CCSP is not! We went to CCSP for dinner that night. The décor is as expected, sports, the wait staff is very good and friendly, the food... read more

Just a short walk from the hotel I was staying at, looking for someplace to grab a bite to eat. Stopped in here, and had a BatterChoice pizza and a few cold beers. Overall nice place. The pizza was served hot, and very tasty. The draft beer was cold and refreshing. There is no shortage of TV's all around to... More

We walk a lot and had this restaurant in mind to eat lunch at after our two mile walk. You know sometimes you don't know what type of food you want but you want to eat out? That's what is nice here because the menu is large just like the portions and outside seating enhances, we believe, digestion. There isn't... More

Went for lunch, had a few beers and had some fun. Staff is very very friendly and food is very good. Beer is cold and great. I'd come back, without a doubt.

I've gone to The Sports Pub for years and have always found their food to be good.... service to be great.... you can't beat the 3rd floor for watching football... and The Crystal City Sports Pub Challenge is a lot of fun (one of these years I'll manage to win :) )!

I did not intend to dine here this evening, but the Thai place that I had hoped to go to nearby had nearly an hour wait. This sports pub was pretty crowded and the menu posted outside had a lot of variety. Their Sunday special is crab cakes. I am a sucker for crab cakes and from the description I... More

We went there for a quick bite mid-afternoon and really felt at home there. So much so, we returned the next night to watch the hockey playoffs and have supper! Highly recommend going there to eat & watch sports - go to the 3rd floor if it's open as it's the most

We stopped in here for a nightcap as they are open until 2 am. It's a fun sports bar with plenty of TV's and pool tables. We enjoyed our beer, had a few laughs and made our way home. The staff was friendly, especially given we were between them and going home.

Went here for Breakfast Saturday morning before heading to DC. Was a good choice. We were a party of eight, were seated promptly by a very attentive waitress. Had a very good breakfast, nice portions for a fair price. Not one complaint from anyone in our party. Also a nice clean, relaxing atmosphere.

We recently visited the Crystal City sports pub while staying in Crystal City on a family trip. They sat us on the 3 rd floor and I really liked the atmosphere. They have plenty of tvs and a giant scoreboard that displays scores for all of the leagues as well as sports trivia. Food was good and prices and service... More
