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...

Joined a bunch of friends in town for a meeting and decided to watch football and drink beers. Great selection of beers and the crab cake platter was to die for! Not the frozen kind by no means!

If you're a sports fan, this place will probably blow your mind. Three floors, 2 patios, TVs everywhere, pool tables, games, amazing food deals and some epic bartenders. Need I say more?Be sure to check out the daily specials, you can easily have a full meal for $10.

Had a nice time watching football today. Wings and Nachos were good and beer was cold. Not a perfect bar but a fun atmosphere to spend a Sunday afternoon.
