Great place. Great staff. Great food. Ate at the bar here last Saturday night while watching a myriad of sport on TV. Perfect place to chill after a busy week. Will definitely visit again next in I'm Georgetown. Thanks!

After a nice long walk, we jumped into this pub to rest and have a drink. Our Waitress, Olive, was a breath of fresh air. Speaking in her Irish brogue, she treated us with stories of her home and country.

In the heart of Georgetown it's pretty good. Brunch: Bottle of champagne with three juices for mimosas- now that was great. Food- 2 eggs, potatoes were ok- multi color were unique and tasty Atmosphere - typical Irish pub

Neat pub with a decent brew selection and some tasty well prepared food. Our server, Ashleigh, was friendly and attentive. The fish and chips were outstanding. An enormous haddock fillet perfectly fried. Enough for two really. Recommended.

We arrived near midnight on a Monday and the band was going (very) loud and strong. We enjoyed good draft beer and split a tasty turkey Ruben sandwich. Great service.

Went for a couple of drinks here on first night in Washington DC. Was very busy as sports were on. Made it a bit of a struggle to get drinks. Found a quieter area to the back of the pub.

Awesome spot for a quick dinner in Georgetown. The atmosphere was great and so was the food. We had chopped Cobb and crab cake sandwich. Molly was an attentive server and the prices were reasonable.

Beautiful Irish pub...with Irish staff! The entire experience was perfect: from the fast and friendly service, to the extensive beer selection, the huge menu, the incredible food, and the fair prices. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and would love to come back!
