Place is a little busy and crowded all the time, but the food is great. May be time to expand and get a bigger place. I came here with a girlfriend and it was a place she wanted to try.. The chicken and vegetables were great. Home style meal. I will definitely be returning.

In the off-season the "pub" keeps everyone in the bar area so you have a choice of bar stools or high pub tables (a nightmare for short or old people). Food is pseudo irish pub fare. The potato leek soup was excellent. We received the food incorrectly cooked per our request (and we ate it anyway). Server was attentive. I think it is more a drinking establishment?

This is the stereotypical USA Irish pub. Far away from the burning peat open fires that make a true Irish pub. That being said the beer & cider were good. The food was also of good quality, the staff were very accommodating. Prices were okay throughout. Yes we would go back as the atmosphere was very welcoming.

I've eaten here a couple of times over the past two years while attending a conference. I have no specific complaints, but the place is a little hard to rate simply.

For an irish pub, the draft beer list is pretty poor. Stay away from their in-house beers - neither are very good. The beer attraction here is in their bottle list - which is extensive and has some great beers on it. Their best beers are really pricey, however, compared to other places I've been.

The menu is pretty spare, but the food is good. A must-order is the pub fries appetizer - smothered in chees and bacon bits. Yum. The lamb french dip came very soggy this time. The two pot pies (lamb and chicken) are the highlights of the menu. Both are pretty good, though neither are what most people would recognize as pot pies. They are more stew with a big biscuit on top. That's OK, just fair warning they don't actually come in a full pie crust.

Desserts are nothing to write home about, but not bad.

Service has always been pretty good. Cheerful, attentive, quick, and accurate. The bar area has several TVs, often turned to soccer when nothing else is on (Irish bar, after all).

I'd come here again, if only because it is largely predictable.

Food was Ok as was atmosphere. Service was pretty good. Kind of an average place even for National Harbor which is a very bland, corporate area.
