“Delicious Food, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We ended up here while visiting Washington D.C. on the recommendation of the front desk staff at our hotel. Needless to say we weren't disappointed. Even for a Sunday night dinner there was awesome live music (playing traditional Irish music) and the service/food were great! We had the shepherd's pie, fish & chips, crab-cake sandwich, and meatloaf. Everything was full of flavor and wonderful. The beer was also great! I highly recommend.

“Good Irish Pub”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We arrived near the end of the England World Cup match and the place was packed, yet they were able to seat us within 10 minutes. The food was your typical Irish pub fare. I had the corned beef and my wife had the fish and chips. The highlight of the meal was my son's kids mac and cheese though. It was delicious.

“Grand indeed!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Stopped in for a couple of drinks and stayed for hours. Thank goodness for the free trolley! The Guinness is perfect as well as the atmosphere and company. If you like anything about an Irish pub you'll want to be stopping by.

We went in Murphy's for an afternoon drink during Happy Hour. Cute pub with very good service. Didn't try any food but the menu looked good.
