Quick lunch (and the service was superb). Loved the food and the atmosphere and I'm not even a sports fan. If you are in the Gaylord resort is definitely worth a visit.

My burger was good and the salad fine. I appreciated that they had local beer and our party of 4 was seated immediately even though they seemed full.

Nice atmosphere. Lots of big screen TVs. Good liquor choices. Basic bar food. Slightly pricey but in line with the rest of the DC area.

I ate here because it was snowing and I was over walking across the street. I was not disappointed. The crab cake was a huge surprise. I was expecting a frozen cake not a thoughtfully prepared fresh handmade crab cake. I like it so much I ate there twice. It also looks like a great place to watch a game... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. I am so glad you were able to enjoy the crab cake, as it is one of our specialities here at the hotel. We probably go through close to 1,000lbs of crab cakes on a busy day in National Pastime. Please come back and enjoy them again with... More

Average rating because I had one of the top 5 best crab cake sandwiches ever here and probably the worst pulled pork sandwich in the history of pigs walking the earth. Crab cake was all fresh crab meat and I was shocked at how good it was in general, much less at a sports bar. I'm 100% sure the pulled... More

This is a sports bar that serves food. There are no tables away from the loud noise. The food is sub-par, most servers are awful (we had one very nice lady who was the exception to this rule), the bathrooms unclean (use the hotel's outside the restaurant). They will allow take out though, so get your food to go and... More

I went to National Pastime on a Saturday night because every other restaurant in the National Harbor area was packed. I guess that should have been my warning sign. First of all, a tall Miller Lite was $8. I then ordered a pulled pork sandwich, which tasted like the horrible stuff that comes in a tub that you buy at... More

Terrific huge TV screens all around the place. There is a great round screen in the middle of the bar. I've not seen one like this. Not a whole lot to choose on the lunch menu, but what they have is good. I had the potato soup with fresh corn bread which was great. Not too salty and piping hot.... More

Delicious cob and ceasar salads. The salads are so big you could actually split one for the two of you. They also knew how to grill salmon to perfection.
