Great sports bar just to watch games but expensive beer and not impressed at all by their food. Small portions and poorly made. Not going back.

I stopped here with my daughters while staying in Arlington. The food was good, the service was quick and friendly. There was something for everyone on the menu. Even though it was a big game night the crowd was nice and family friendly. Would definitely eat here again during another stay.

Reasonably priced, great service and great breakfast! I was surprised at the menu and selection. I didn't expect it to be this good!

We were staying a few blocks down at the hampton inn so this was very convenient. It was a nice walk and the weather was good. Our entire family, about 20 people, sat our on the patio out front. Good service considering the entire place was PACKED (aside from my family) otherwise I probably wouldn't have been very happy. I... More

My husband and I joined our son at his college (ours too) football game watch party. Had fun watching our team play, enjoyed delicious lunches, and met other alumni in the area. We drove over, and easily found parking in the neighborhood only a block away. This sports pub has so many designated areas for watching games on numerous tv's.... More

This place was awesome! We actually ended up going twice in our three days in the DC area. The first was when we first got there. The servers were friendly and the place was pretty empty. I got the Chicken Marsala which was on special and it hit the spot after a long drive. The next day we went back... More

Stopped in to watch the game and grab a bite to eat. The place wasn't full being Thursday and easily found a place to sit. The service wasn't the greatest but the food was delicious and pricing reasonable. If they pick up their service this place would be five stars.

Was looking for a place to watch the game and this fit the bill!!!! Tons of TVs and they had signs on them so you knew what games would be on when! Friendly folks, nice crowd and good food. Big selection of drinks too!! All in all...fun place

Last Friday while on a family trip to Washington DC we came upon this restaurant. The outside of the restaurant looks great - nice lighting and it seemed to have a lively atmosphere. But once my party and I (5 of us) got inside things took a strange turn. No one came to seat us even after waiting several minutes.... More
