Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

If passing through Flint Hill you must stop here and have the fish and chips! AWESOME!!!! Great bar and dining restaurant. Nice atmosphere and kind staff. We really enjoyed the lunch while visiting the local vineyards. Don't miss out on this great little find.

“Great food !”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We always enjoy a mid-day trip to Griffin Tavern. Their lunch food and daily specials have always been very good. We like their bar and outside patio.

“Hometown Place to go for fun at night”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great little Pub, good bar food, and great music. Went to Karoke on Friday nite, the people singing could all get jobs in the music business. Amazing! Also, I am part Irish, and spoke to a few people who came from Scotland and Ireland!!! Great fun!!!!

“Great bar and local foods”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The people working there couldnt be more friendly and the food specials are worthy of a 4 star DC restaurant ranking. We even tried an asian bun similar to something you would find at Honey Pig. We will return, especially when they have band night

“Great place if you enjoy Ireland, the Irish or a little blarney”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Great stop for dinner and evening entertainment. Traditional Irish fare - great live entertainment. In summer, bring your hound on a leash to join you in their outdoor seating area. Very popular - fish and chips, great burgers - along with my favorite Shepherd's Pie.
