Go for the Guacamole!

Enjoyed several visits or so to National Pastime while we were at a week-long conference. Chandra was our server and she was the best! Remembered our drink and preferences, and always had a smile on her face. The guacamole is absolutely one of the best guacs I've tasted.

We stayed one night at the Gaylord Property when traveling by car to Florida. Rarely go to sports bars, but we were hungry and it was on the hotel property. Wide range of beers and typical bar food. Had chicken wings (3 heat levels) and they were quite good. My wife went for the grilled salon and it was good... More

This restaurant is located in the atrium of the National Harbor Hotel and Convention Center so you don't have to leave the hotel for a change of pace. This type of location would usually indicate that the food and service would be mediocre, but not here. this time, just stopped in for a drink and snack but worth the stop.... More

this was a decent little sports bar Gaylord Hotel and resort. I found a beer to be highly overpriced. The food seem to be fairly decent. And the waitstaff was fairly attentive. There are better places to go but if you don't wish to leave the Gaylord Hotel this is the place to stop to get a drink.

I've been to this restaurant about 4-5 times now. It's a decent place to eat when you don't want to leave the Gaylord. The food is pretty decent and they have a nice selection of drinks at the bar. It's open until 1 am on Friday and Saturday, which is great. The waitstaff and the bartenders there are all very... More

Its good food, but pricey. Good sports atmosphere, but the wifi is slow. Lots of screens to watch and good variety. Better place to go to in hotel.

Great food! We sat facing the fountain, and could watch it changing colors. The restaurant was busy, but the staff was great! Loved the fact it was right in our hotel, the Gaylord!

It was a group of 14 with young kids and adults. We did not have reservations & had no problems being seated. National Pastime Bar & Grill is located in the Gaylord Hotel. We were not staying at the hotel but was able to dine. They serve salads, hamburgers, fries & sandwiches. Perhaps they were busy as we had quite... More

The casual atmosphere was relaxing. Not a place to have a business conversation. If there is an important sports event the place gets busy very quickly so you might have to wait for a table

The food was good - probably better than your average bar food. The service was good. Overall, an enjoyable evening, but nothing special.
