Called in here this evening on the last night of our 3 week USA holiday, looking for a classic sports bar evening to round it all off. Great choice. Friendly staff, quick service, a good selection of beers and high quality TV's everywhere - even in the rest rooms. (The gents had one over each urinal so you missed nothing sports wise! The Ladies had to share one over the sinks!)

The food did not disappoint either. We shared a delicious Mac, Cheese and Brisket appetiser. Then it was a burger with onion rings for me - the onion rings being home made, not frozen, and a lovely medium cooked burger. My wife went for the brisket with sweet potato and collared greens. Great veg, and although the brisket was nice we have had better.

Overall a good evening. Do give it a try.

Terrible service. I arrived with my friend for drinks and food, sit in the last table and asked the waiter if he can connect my phone anywhere because it was dead and I needed for Uber (I provided the charger). And he was so Rude and arrogant and said that they don’t do that and less when it was a game day. We were so disappointed at his lack of touch, empathy and willingness to serve that we leave the place. Please control your employees. There are manners even if the answer was no. It was las Sunday around 3pm.

We first came here 3 years ago...and had a great, very long lunch. 3 years later and back in Washington DC and we just had to go again. Pleased to say it lived up to expectations. Very attentive service, good choice of beers and great food. What more could you want...oh yeah the Sports bit...well we were outside (on both occasions) but enjoyed the atmosphere nonetheless. hopefully it wont be 3 years till we visit Washington DC again but whenever we'll be sure to look this bar up again.

I had a burger and some buffalo wings. Wings were good and the burger was pretty good but not the best I've ever had. It's a good spot to watch a sports game.

We enjoyed a great lunch with a nice selection of cold beer. Full bar available. We sat inside, comfortable - typical sports bar noise level. The brisket sandwich is wonderful. We went back for dinner and decided to sit outside - a mistake. Service was good but a few homeless guys wanting to watch game on TV kept hanging around---just uncomfortable for patrons.
