Solo Lunch after visiting Capital
Had a wonderful experience eating lunch with a glass of wine talking to John (general manager) about Washington, DC. Very friendly sports bar pub/restaurant with fantastic food. Burger with crumble Blue Cheese and hand made potatoe chips. NOT OUT OF A BAG. Can't say enough about food service, drinks , (wine) excellent server, delicio... read more

I flew into DC for the Big Ten Tournament and came to this bar/restaurant with the Purdue Alumni group last week and boy these guys were great!  We enjoyed it so much we went 3 days in a row.  The two bartenders (Yollie and Karli) we interacted with could've been our best friends.  Even though it was packed, I felt like they were alw... read more

As far as sports bars go, I think this one deserves 4 stars. Not because the food was amazing or anything like that, but because it was a genuinely good experience. We luckily got a table upstairs at the otherwise packed bar. There were TVs everywhere showing a variety of games. The Roast Beef sandwich was pretty darn good and my fri... read more

As I walked around multiple lunch places in D.C., I had no idea where to eat. After looking at the menu here, I decided it was the perfect spot to have lunch during my time in D.C. I sat outside and while, on March 1, the weather was warm (high 50s/low 60s) but it was extremely windy. The staff was fine with me eating outside despite... read more

Great place for lunch
Randomly found this place walking around seeing the sites. Service is quick and really friendly. The burger was excellent. There is a small bar to sit at and the patio was covered and well heated on the cold March day we were there. Would highly recommend as somewhere to stop after you're done walking around.

Eh. It's a sports bar for early 20-somethings and those who miss those days. I've seen someone vomit on themselves here and manage to order more beer. That was classy. The staff is pretty nice, though.

A good place to stop in for a breakfast or lunch. The scrambled eggs were well prepared , light and airy. The Belgian waffle was crisp yet moist on the inside. Good cooking.

Quick place to eat
We stopped in after visiting the National Archives. It is right behind the Archives and the service was efficient. We had a burger that was really good. The only down side was some inappropriate conversations behind the bar between some employees.

Great service great beer
Stopped here after a long day. Had 3 boys aged 10 and up and myself. Good comfort food. Nachos were not good as the appetizer. But I had the Ruben and home made fries and craft beer on tap and it was perfect. Sat outside in the heated enclosed patio. Was just a little chilly at the end, but the service was great!

Good food and TVs everywhere!
Went to Penn Quarter to see a BBall game and have lunch. Good food and many TVs all in one place! Two-story. We sat upstairs. This place is small but artfully arranged for a crowd. We had a Burger and a salad and beer on tap. Excellent service! They made sure the game we wanted to see was on where we could see it. Will go back!

It's a sports bar so don't expect peace and quiet. I haven't seen as many tv's in one place. Added to which each is showing a different channel. The food is large. Good selection of beers and not unreasonably priced.

One of the few bars around the archive/Chinatown area that has outdoor patio seating. And they're dog friendly which is a big plus for me!
