A popular place

Long around 5 PM this place gets busy with all the locals either coming home from work or waiting for the traffic to die down. They have a long list of craft beers along with the normal American standards. Food is excellent. A nice selection of tavern food that is reasonably priced. We came here... read more

It has all sorts of games like hoops, skeeball, table tennis and pool. The drink prices were reasonable and it's a young crowd. Gets pretty crowded on Fridays.

If there is such a thing. There is a bunch of games including skeeball, pool, hoops, and more. Reasonable happy hour prices, too. It has an accessible location.

Half price dinner specials each day- Salad night was the best- Chinese Chicken salad, but get mixed greens...skewered chicken, it was yummy. Great beers on happy hour, and ladies night specials for playing pool/other games too.

Continental is really the only bar bar in Rosslyn. All others are just part of a restaurant, which allows them to draw a large crowd after work. Lots of games including pool, darts, buck hunter, ping pong, etc make it a mostly male crowd but the beers are cheap and cold.

Stopped here for a quick bite and were pleasantly surprised at the great service and good food. The server/bartender was friendly and efficient. The menu is a bit limited but offers a variety if tastes at a decent price. We will be stopping there again.

It's a happenin' place on a Friday night, but the service sucks. It's right around the corner from where we live, so it's good for Friday night messy burgers and beer, but you can wait a long time for a server to notice that you're sitting there, waiting...

Went with a group after work. Basically had bar food but there were some interesting, and tasty, options. Fried Mac and Cheese was a big hit at the table. Several ordered loaded hot dogs - very good, and nice change from the typical bar food options. Happy hour offered some very good half price options for food. Drink prices OK... More

Plenty of TVs to service everyone's sports desire. Great for groups with pool, ping pong, some arcade style fun. Typical bar food, but don't miss the fried pickles!

Bar staff was friendly and accommodating and there is lots to do; skeeball, pool, games. $16 for a double Stoli selzer is pretty ridiculous especially for just a sports bar.
