This place was awesome, great food and the gentleman who played guitar and sung Irish songs was great. He made the place very lively as he took request and got everybody to participate in the songs. I would definitely come back here again when I am in town.

The music is loud, the bar menu fulfills your drinking and eating needs, the waitresses are prompt and the place is filled with good-looking young men and women who all look like they are having a fabulous time. It sure looks like a place to meet the someone 'special' you've been waiting for all your life - if you're in your 20's or 30's.

We just stopped by for a couple of beers and some appetizers and I like the bar scene. They have two bars one down and the other upstairs. Appetizers were decent and we had the potato skins and Irish spring rolls which were quite good. Bar tender was a little surly but he may have been having an off day.

We were visiting with friends in the DC area, and they took us to Olde Towne. What a neat area! Decided to stop by for drinks and appetizers. Arrived early afternoon, but by the time we left around 4:30, the place was filling up fast!!! Beers were cold and they poured a good head on them. Decided on onion rings for appetizer, and ordered 2 orders for 4 people. Hot and tasty. Would love to have stayed for dinner, but needed to move on. If ever in the area again, I know my husband and I would love to come back here again.
