Over priced, but to be expected at the location

I was staying at the Gaylord for a conference and my coworker and I ended up here twice for a dinner and lunch. Each time out of convenience and each time we had decent food and average service. It's over priced for the quality but in the isolated location of the hotel it's to be expected and could... read more

It's survival code for us in National Harbor. Good ambiance and good beers! The wait staff is cordial and helpful.

I'me vegetarian, so the options were obviously limited but they ahd a great veggie burger. They're open till midnight. The nagatives are that the crowd does get noisy and boisterous, and the service is very slow.

It is a mix between a sports bar and a classy bar... you may enjoy the middle ground or be uncomfortable depending on your tastes.

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 chronicled in my review... 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.
