“Very poor meal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The pastalmi on Rye was very bad. Crusty out side. Was supposed to have cole slaw, but the was may 2 shreds of slaw. My wife's chips were extremely cold. The table behind us left, cause it took more the 45 minutes ans their meal still hadn't come out. The menu is very poor.

“Good for a quick bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This is the closest dining option to the Gaylord. I ate there twice. Nothing fancy. Good salads. They serve food until midnight so we were able to eat there after returning from the night DC tour offered by the hotel.

“Extremely Dissapointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Went there to celebrate a friends 40th, wanted to have a good meal and drinks. Service was below average. Appetizer was good everything after was down hill. I ordered a $18 burger, was burnt so bad I did not eat it. When the waiter offered to get me a new one, I said no thanks. Manger did not even come by (waiter did take it off the bill) two others ordered the iron steak, bottom line: horrible! one order med-rare other ordered med both came out WELL done and a bad cut of meat. I know they had me try it. Of the five eating, three said it was terrible (the two ladies did not offer a commit). I would be surprised if the remain open based on my experiance. Would NEVER RETURN, even if it was free. Go Elesewhere

“Just what I expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Was there in March of 2013. Its a casual bar-style restaurant and well... bar. Food was pretty good, came out as described on the menu, and priced decent (especially for the area). Location is great to the hotels.

Staff was 50/50 on being knowledgable. Some were great, some kind of felt lost. Overall a B.

I would definitely return, with plenty of TVs and good selections of food/beverages.
