“Happened upon a little gem,,.,”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

Happened upon this place during a recent stay in DC and liked it so much we went back the second night as well! Food is fantastic bar fare. Chef happened to come out to the bar while we were there and he obviously pours his heart into his food. Everything we had was just fantastic from the sliders on down the menu. Bar staff was fun, prices were reasonable. If you are there during college foot ball season, be prepared for a loud fun night!!!

“Best Sliders Anywhere”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

Went for beer week will come back for the sliders. The best anywhere! Warm, buttery and who cares what's inside, they tasted so good.

Cozy, fun, engaging staff and great atmosphere. Selection of beers very good and inexpensive, perhaps they sell alot, ha!

Will go back another time to check out a larger menu. Heard the pub quiz was good as well. Plenty of opportunities for fun.

“Great food and relaxing atmosphere!”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

My wife and I stumbled upon this little gem on our recent stay in DC. The food and service were both great! You get pretty good sized portions too so if you are on a strict budget, you could easily split one of the sandwich meals.

“Great place for bar food and beers!”
Reviewed July 14, 2010

Friendly bar staff, interesting and friendly clientele. The food hit the spot and was served quickly. Also very reasonably priced.

In general, a great place to chill out on a hot and sticky DC summer's afternoon.
