Good Happy Hour

Weekday happy hour runs 4-7pm and features one-half price appetizers, and discounted draft beer (domestic). The buffalo hot wings at $5.00 for eight meaty wings are great. The service is great too. Many, many TV's located throughout the eating areas. Free parking available across the street. If... read more

There was a welcoming atmosphere right when we walked inside. Our server was fun and made recommendations on dishes. Between our group we had desserts, apptizers and entrees and all well delicious. Drinks were well mixed and the beer was cold.

We went as a couple on a Saturday night and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and awesome food. There is a huge variety on the menu. We enjoyed it so much, that the next day, we brought back our group of 30 people that we were traveling with. Everyone loved it. They have 3 stories, with bars on each floor.... More

Many of the restaurants in Crystal City are chains, and are quite pricey. If one walks down 23rd street for a few blocks you can arrive at more modestly-priced restaurants. The food at this Sports Bar is adequate and fairly priced for the quality and quantity served. The service was excellent. The local beer that I had, on draft, was... More

Ok so I'm not your garden variety snob but I do like a nice atmosphere. To me the ambiance is a big part of the restaurant experience. If you're ANYTHING like me you may want to consider a different venue, or do what we did and get the food to go. And actually that might be a challenge because like... More

There really is three floors to this sports bar. I liked the food the first night so much I came back a second night. Lots of TVs with various games on all over. Very good selection of craft draft beers especially IPAs. The menu was varied and the portions large. I had the fajita chicken salad one night and could... More

I've been to this place a couple times, both before the Marine Corps Marathon in October. It was crazy busy, but the service was great and the food was excellent. They've got pretty standard pub fare, but the portions are huge. It's really worth the price. They've got a ton of TVs in the place, so there is no problem... More

Conveniently located among a cluster of restaurants on 23rd Ave in Crystal City, there's lots of seating, many TV screens and a great bar (for those who partake). The food portions are huge so bring your appetite!

What is better than watching a game in the comfort of your own home? watching EVERY game with one of the most amazing burgers you will ever eat. Cooked to perfection, which is difficult to do. 3 floors of everything sports, but with amazing service and fabulous food. Located in Crystal City, minutes from downtown DC. I heard they have...

Went on the recommendation of the local hotel where we were staying. Pleasant surprise with a very friendly staff, diverse clientele, great food, and very good prices. The Apple and Pork sandwich is a MUST have, and it is only $4.99! I live only about one hour away, and might just make the trek again just for that sandwich...
