Reviews

Stopped for an early dinner because it was close to all of the museums and it was pretty good. Server didn't come around too much to check on us but he was pleasant. Burgers could be considered a bit pricey but they were good enough to be worth it. Definitely would stop in again if I come back to D.C.

Not too bad for a tourist trap, but not memorable either. Service was all over the place, like we received 2 sets of waters, and we never had a waitress to ourselves. Just random people helping. Kinda confusing. Just got a burger and fries, and it tasted as generic as Fridays. Nothing really stood out in terms of food. But fair price ... read more

Good food and good drinks. Nothing overly done here but that's what we wanted and we had a satisfying meal with good service and it was not too expensive.

Great pub food
The place is small overall but there are literally tVs line in the entire restaurant. The service was great and the place seemed really popular. The food was nicer than you would expect for a pub/bar. If you're looking for a restaurant with a sports or bar atmosphere, I highly recommend this place.

After seeing the museums, we went there for lunch. Great outdoor seating.  Food was pretty good, little bland - onion rings were really really greasy.  I'm big on service and not having to ask for water - so it needs a little work. Little pricey - typical for DC area.

Marinated sliced steak sandwich was great. The horseradish mayo makes the sandwich. They have good happy hour specials after 7. The old bay wings were amazing. Good selection of beer too.

We went here for dinner and my husband wanted to watch the hockey game. There was covered outdoor seating. Service was great, food was great and they didn't rush us out.

Great place and ambience. Superb service at the bar, even late at night. They had a huge wedding party going on upstairs, but it seemed well staffed and prepared for it. The mac and cheese balls were to die for. A great place with a fun and happy staff, even after a long shift for our bartender. He deserves a raise!

Good atmosphere with plenty of outside seating and tv's. Service was fine. Steak salad was good. Steakhouse burger medium well was a low-grade very greasy patty. Even with the cheese, onions, and mushrooms it had no flavor. The tots were also super greasy. Wish I had gotten the salmon salad. It looked good. Overall, the food was like ... read more

Great happy hour drinks and finger foods
Went here on a Friday evening. Very popular place with great drink & happy hour food prices. We had a few drinks and the hot wings, which were delicioius. Buku TV's around the room so you can see a few from every seat.

We stopped in for lunch and a cold beverage. The chicken cheesesteak was tasty and served with chips and a pickle. My son had the steakhouse burger cooked medium with A1 on the side. The burger was perfectly prepared and the seasoned fries were great. The beer on tap was cold and they have pints and larger 22oz glasses. The waitress ... read more

Sure, music could be louder (a little since I can't really hear it inside with the kitchen clanging); however, I give it a 5 stars because the rating seemed quite low for what this bar offers.

We tried the Penn Quarter Sports Bar for lunch on a Wednesday morning in March. It was a nice day and the outside seating area actually had a few patrons on the patio.

We were halfway through a day of sightseeing in DC and decided we were starving. We stumbled on this place by accident and decided to try it. Their wings were big, crispy and flavorful.

Walking by on the way to the museum, and had to stop. We were excited to try the yuengling lager since we don't have it in Nebraska.

Randomly found this place walking around seeing the sites. Service is quick and really friendly. The burger was excellent.

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.
