Average restaurant in a great hotel

It's okay but that's about it. The crab cake was excellent and hot wings were good. Service was acceptable. It's a sports bar (sort of). If you are hotel-bound in the National Harbor area it's an option but I wouldn't go out of my way to dine here. The hotel, but the way, is excellent, as... read more

I have not had a veggie burger of this quality anywhere in the last few years ... very good restaurant if you find place to sit. Very crowded during lunch hours!

Okay, I watched the Superbowl here, not gonna lie! And I'm from Boston. Wall-to-wall screens, fantastic! On a business trip to National Harbor just as my home team was playing but being at this place was so fun! We got the prixe-fix buffet and just dove into pub food and the game. The place was packed and everybody was friendly... More

Great service, food was good, nice atmosphere Bar was fun, and the selection of drinks and food were diverse. Ate here twice, and sat at bar several times during my recent conference. Overall a nice relaxing place to have something to eat, and throw back a couple of drinks!!

The food was ok but pricy, the beer was the most expensive. I was there during the super bowl and while their are a lot of TVs i wasn't thoroughly impressed.

This is just a fun place to be inside the Gaylord National Harbor resort. My daughter and I arrived to get a burger and watch the MSU Spartans. The large TV was changed at our request. We ordered burgers and fries with multiple requests and substitutions. Our fry order was half regular and half sweet potato, which was happily accommodated.... More

I don't usually like to write negative reviews but the service here was so bad, I just had to. It was not a busy night and our waitress just couldn't be bothered with us. We had to ask another waitress to take our order, to get us water, get us silverware... We felt like we had to keep asking everyone... More

The crab cakes were REALLY good and made the wait worth it. They were full of crab meat and not much filler. My husband had his like a burger with fries. I had salad of fresh greens, craisins, goat cheese, and small tomatoes with the crab cake added. Both priced at a reasonable $19. We enjoyed that lunch so much... More

We stayed at the Gaylord hotel overnight this past weekend and received a food credit with our reservation. Since I had my child with me, we chose National Pastime because I thought it was the best suited sit down for children in the hotel. The food in here is very expensive for a sports bar atmosphere ($16 for a cheeseburger?),... More

I had great service one day and lackluster service the next. I can say the same with the food I ordered.
