This was a short distance from the Gaylord. The menu was simple but had a good variety that would be fine for a couple or a family. I wouldn't really rate it as anything extraordinary but it was good.

Went for breakfast. Service was slow and prices were highly inflated. I don't mind paying for good food. That wasn't the case. Eggs and hash browns were under cooked. Toast was like a rock. I wouldn't return.

Within a block of the Gaylord, this place has a happy hour for post-conference drinks. Prices on non-happy hour drinks are a bit high, but on par with the National Harbor price bracket. The food served here is standard pub-style food. Nothing overly good, and almost nothing healthy. The bartenders are social and will take care of you. Recommended for... More

I went in for lunch around 12:45. The hostess was quite frazzled and I waited almost 10 minutes to be seated outdoors (the restaurant wasn't crowded). After sitting for another 10 minutes with no waiter in site, I got up and moved indoors to the bar. Service there was fine, but food was just ok - had a pretty soggy... More

Stopped for dinner while here with family for a conference. The staff were very polite and accommodating. I found the Kids Menu to be the best fit so far for our picky daughter. The prices are higher, but probably on-par with every other place in National Harbor.

Visited here for lunch with my wife while staying at Gaylord for a conference. I was very impressed with salad I had, and all of the other food looked very good also. When we walked by on Friday night, it looked like this places takes on a welcoming bar atmosphere.

The service was pretty good. When it comes to drinking, I'm a lightweight. I told the bartender this, but my drink was still too strong and had to be remade. The shrimp and grits were to die for! My niece had the steak and it looked terrific.
