Crystal City is stands out among the restaurants around it, being that is a sport bar open early and late. The other places are diverse and not open past 10. Good for a brew or a quick bite of standard bar food. Nothing overly original on the menu, but the food is prepared quickly and good quality for the price.... More

Restaurant was very busy, they have 3 floors and most of the table were full. This is a sports bar and the fans can be verbal about their teams, not obnoxious. Food was hot and filling, large portions. Waitresses were very busy, friendly and attentive. Management is involved in the operation and are very helpful and friendly.

Had a recommendation from front desk at our hotel and She was spot on. Great food and decent selection of beers. Great street for walking and nice wait staff here. Will go back when we visit the area.

Stopped by here while staying at an airport hotel....good beers...on server recommendation I had the Crab Cake sandwich (house specialty.) It was ok but the crab had tasted a bit fishy. The $17 ticket for the sandwich was a bit too much for what I got. If you go here, stick to the beers and burgers and enjoy the games... More

We attended a 4th birthday party at CCSP and it was awesome. The party was held on the top floor which was sectioned off as private for the event. The space itself is great, complete with a wall of tv's, a large bar, ample seating and a bounce house! The kids and parents all had a great time. Breakfast gave... More

Hood place to hang out with friends, but not great food or drinks. Never had a martini in a plastic glass. Hughe place with pool tables. Lors of tv screens and very busy. Prices are reasonable. Jumbo wings were not jumbo at all.

I have been coming to CCSP for years, and had a favorable opinion of it (see my 12/2/2012 review) until a recent trip (11/20/2016) ensured I'd never go back. When I go to watch games, I order anything from a cup of coffee to a few drinks to full meals, often inviting friends and family. On this occasion, I just... More

I have been visiting this place whenever I am in the DC area since it first opened in the mid-90's and it still has what I would consider to be amongst the best hot wings in America. I have been known to sit there and knock off between 20 and 30 of them over the course of an evening, washed... More

We came here on a Tuesday evening for Happy Hour and were sure happy we did. Good appetizers and well priced drinks. Lots of monitors with every sports channel there is. Service was friendly and welcoming. We recommend this place.
