The Pub & The People: what do users think?


Ethan Z: Great Restaurant!! This Restaurant is in the city area and offers indoor and outside seating!! The menu is rather small but the food and drinks were great!! The wait staff were friendly and professional!! The restaurant was also clean and well presented. The bathrooms are coolly decorated too with people sending pictures in of there family pets in to be featured on the wall. Overall great!

Becky Gomez: Such a great spot for a lonely, taveling vegetarian! 😂 Bar service was superb and a delightful vibe. Great beer selection. Perfect shishitos 🌶️ and tempura cauliflower!

AJ Hendricks: Pub and the People is our favorite outdoor spot in Bloomingdale. The beers they have on tap are great, and the food (specifically, the Black Bean burger and "The Heidi" Fried Chicken sandwich) is very solid. The tempura cauliflower sauce is also amazing. Matt, the manager, is very friendly and just a welcoming face to see when you come in. This radiates through the whole staff. The happy hour specials are awesome, and run for most of the day on the weekends. Enjoy!

Parker Kelley: Very great experience here ! We’ve passed this place numerous times and I’ve always said I wanted to try it. So, we finally did ! I ordered the Heidi chicken sandwich which was very tasteful. It came with a side of fries which were also very good. The service was great - 3 or 4 people continuously came to check on us. I’d definitely eat here again.

Bobbi DeAnda: Such a great brunch spot! The outdoor patio is pup friendly (and the bathroom inside is a must see for dog lovers haha). The biscuits and gravy with fried chicken was TO DIE FOR. So yummy! Staff was super friendly and helpful.

Callum Wayman: A great local pub for people in Eckington and Bloomingdale. The pub offers a great selection of beers, wine, and cocktails as well as an excellent food menu (try the tempura cauliflower, chicken sandwich, and the fries). In the winter they offer group seating around large fire pits for small gatherings. I found that to be a huge boon when trying to gather friends outdoors while being mindful of COVID during the winter. The staff are nice and helpful.

Amy Burdon: Had dinner and played trivia - food menu was fairly short but with lots of tasty items - I enjoyed the curry wings and gazpacho. Staff were friendly, happy hour drinks were a good deal. All positives!

India Lindsay: Very friendly, cute neighborhood joint. Food and drinks are all pretty good. The wait staff are so friendly and laid back. It's a great spot for a casual drink after work or meeting up with a few friends in an easy-going atmosphere

Daniel Albert: Not sure what happened to this place. The drinks we got were fine, but the food was pretty subpar. Got the Cuban sandwich and the fries that came with it were way too peppered and salty. The food used to be great here. The vibe is still good - cozy and perfect for winter time.

Sanderson Tattersall: OK, I've reviewed a lot of restaurants, and this one was a chance encounter. Trip to DC, Air BNB nearby, popped in on our last night. Very cool decor, loved the shelving behind the bar with the books and booze mixed, industrial chic. Waitress was great, bartender was great, food was even better. My family of four all got different burgers and sandwiches and all were fantastic. Taps were pretty stellar and they had my favorite Great Lakes Brewing Co. beer, the Elliot Ness. My only regret is not actually living in the area so I can go back. TLDR definitely recommended. Get your A in here.

Round Robin Bar: what do users think?


Caitlin Cordova: The Round Robin Bar is the perfect place to have a cocktail during the holidays when you’re downtown to see the National Christmas Tree. Located inside the Willard Hotel, which is a work of art in itself, the circular Bar serves cocktails and a full menu of classic options. Cocktails ~$20 apiece. Happy hour is crowded, but there are plenty of standing options around the bar itself, and additional seating options in the hallway of the hotel’s lobby. Our bar table service was quick and efficient. Highly recommend checking this place out.

Ray Hendrick: Friendly service. Great drinks. Awesome history. A perfect place for after dinner drinks during your visit to DC. Try the Mint Julep or the Bee's Knees.

Annie Wilson: Attentive service, beautiful warm atmosphere and classic drinks - a delicious experience. The mint julep is spectacular, not fussy, and the staff are cheerful, knowledgeable and enjoyable to watch keeping bar. We went here to celebrate an occasion but we also went to see the national Christmas tree - great location for this. The historical aspects of the bar make a great addition to the experience.

Sue D: Every evening I've ever spent here has been epic. This past time, we got to know half the bar (as per usual here), and there was a great jazz trio playing Christmas music in the lobby. The Willard has the prettiest Christmas decorations in town every year. If you have company coming in from out of town (any time of year), be sure to bring them here. Don't miss the room at the top of the long red staircase that tells about the history of The Willard. MLK Jr finished his "I Have a Dream" speech here.

Paul Terry Services Lawn Care & Landscaping: Christina and her staff are - in a word - AMAZING. Kind, caring and beyond gracious. Special requests are a not a problem for this crew. For the most unique and special celebration, look no further. Grateful for this staff.

Hue Tran: Went to the place for a drink and dessert. Service was horrible. I was eating on my dessert and the lady walking passed my table and just grabbed my dessert plate without saying anything, none of the " are you done with this? Or can I take this? Was happened.

Alex Holston: Fantastic. In the 1800’s Henry Clay brought the Mint Julep to Washington DC featuring it at this bar. Rich in history they still make this favorite May drink the same way. Makers Mark. Rose Simple Syrup. Muddle mint. Crushed ice. Our bar tender was fantastic. One of the best. We will return.

Patsy Agpalza: The Round Robin Bar at the Willard Hotel in D.C. is quickly becoming a favorite spot to have a drink and soak up the atmosphere. The Cedar Plank Roasted Salmon is absolutely delicious. I have ordered it twice now and have been very happy each time. The Bartender, Elias has worked there for 30 years and is absolutely phenomenal. Ask him to make you any drink and you will not be disappointed.

Matthew: A classy bar in a historic hotel only steps away from where Ulysses S Grant coined the terms lobbyists. Great bartenders who know how to serve a proper glass of whiskey.

Joey Emmitte: An amazing topshelf selection! And you can't beat the amount of history in this quaint bar.

Post Pub: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: My Diplomat Bacon Cheddar burger ($12.95) with sweet potato fries ($3) was so good and very reasonably priced for so much food. A good place to enjoy a relaxed, casual lunch.
Response: Thank you for taking your time to review us, Hilda! We are really glad to hear you had such a great experience. We look forward to having you back soon.

Nikoloz Gogilidze: very friendly service and nice public. I have been there twice and enjoyed both times. Burger is really nice and they offer to prepare meat even rare which is not an option in every bar.
Response: Thank you Nikoloz :) We are happy to hear you had such a great experience at Post Pub. We look forward to hosting you many more times in the future

Kat Dean: I never write Google reviews, but I've got to give it up to Post Pub. I work nearby and pick up lunch from them occasionally. Y'all, their spicy chicken sandwich with the truffle fries is a smash. It's so good. And I've had drinks there too and their whole atmosphere is great. It's a classic, an actual dive bar in downtown. I'm just so thrilled that they're back!
Response: Thank you so much Kat! We appreciate your feedback and support- looking forward to having you back in again soon :)

Mark Orebiyi: A friend and I got a drink and some dinner at this location recently and we were very happy about the service. Unfortunately the food did not match. We both ordered a fried chicken sandwich and were extremely upset. We relayed our disappointment to the manager and he seemed receptive.

Lisa Sullivan: All the way from Vermont and am loving this outdoor patio, mixed drinks during happy hour and a really amazing bar tender!
Response: Thank you so much for the kind review Lisa :)

Emma Austin: I felt so welcomed at Post Pub. The staff was over the top and extremely friendly. They were constantly checking in on us. The drinks were great. We only got one order of fries and they were good too. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.
Response: Thank you Emma! We are so happy to hear you had a great experience with us- please come back soon!

Joe Joemer: excellent customer service and kind people. I've gone there twice and have had a good time both times. Even rare meat can be prepared, which is not always a possibility in bars, and the hamburgers are particularly good.
Response: Thank you, Joe!

kristen jones: Went here at 9pm on a Saturday night with two friends. Ordered 3 beers totaling $20.90. Paid with $30 cash and the bartender took my money and didn’t give me any change. When I asked for my $9.10 change (with full intentions of tipping on the 3 beers we ordered) the (drunk) bartender went back to the register and got a $10 bill and slammed it on the bar in front of me and yelled in front of everyone “here you go, princess!” Apparently he thought he deserved a $10 (50%) tip on a check for three beers. I’ve been in the service industry for 15 years. This place deserves 0% gratuity for customer service. Would not recommend. Take your business elsewhere.

isela martinez: Drinks were good. Food took way too long for a simple burger,fries and mozzarella sticks. There only two other customers when we got there. The cheese wasn’t even melted onthe burger,the buns were burnt and mozzarella sticks didn’t even have mozzarella in them.Only came here cause Stans was closed. Next time I’ll just wait till theyopen. Server was nice
Response: Hi Isela- I am sorry that you had a less than satisfactory experience with us. Hi Isela. We appreciate your feedback and will take it into consideration- we hope your next experience with us is better.

George Stover: The historic Pub in downtown DC is back. It was always cherished before and now with the new staff and menu, it can be cherished again. Go for the pub fare and stay for the experience.

Exiles Bar: what do users think?


Molly Crabb: Exiles has been the go-to UNC bar during the tournament (and hopefully forever?) and going to all the games has been a BLAST. The waiters were SO accommodating and pushed through a packed room to deliver food with a smile. We had tech issues with the TV and they had multiple people come and try to fix and figured it out quickly! My 64 year old mom even had a good time and said she’d go back.

Shaina Eckles: Great drinks, fantastic atmosphere & super rad bathroom art.
Response: Thanks for the kind words Shaina. We really appreciate it!

Brian Webster: Loved this DC area Buffalonian bar! Exiles is a great location with awesome service, great food, and impressive drink selection. I got the wings (crispy and great) paired with a couple of Labatts, as well as a Catalonian Spritz that was refreshing. This place would be amazing to watch the Bills this fall!
Response: Cheers Brian, fingers crossed for a big year for the Bills

Amit S: The 5th best bar on u street apparently. I still have to find the first four. The whole team is rocking. Good time guaranteed. Love you all!!!

Christopher Williams: A wonderful neighborhood bar. The owners and staff will make you feel at home. Nice outdoor patio with a “hook game.”

kareem shaban: 5 star average! 6 stars for their excellent service, fantastic vibe, outdoor space, great beer, and overall "neighborhood bar" feel! Every bartender is a gem and the owners know their clientele. 4 stars for not discounting their merchandise that says "U Street's 5th Best Bar" now that they are U Streets 3rd best bar.
Response: Kareem thank you for your comments. We are honored to welcome you and your sparkly jackets every single time. We believe in staying humble by being humble, though its sometimes difficult for us. We are working on new t-shirts, watch this space!

Shahnaz Punjani: Nice atmosphere. Friendly with great service. Just what I was looking for. A place to have a drink and chill.
Response: Thank you very much Shahnaz. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Alvin H: Visited this place on the night of my birthday Oct 24. The atmosphere was cool, it was karaoke night so people were having a good time. They had the World Series on multiple flat screens and a projector screen as well. Ordered a burger and fries, and a drink named after Bush's daughter.

Alain Parcan: As a sworn Stetsonite, I never wanted to admit I liked exiles as much as I did but if it isn’t one of the best bars in dc to get a beer and decent bar food, I dunno what is

Toby Willse: Awesome bar! Great beer selection, fun vibes, chill employees. Will be going back whenever I'm in the area.
Response: Thank you for the kind words Toby. Come back and see us next time.

The Dubliner Restaurant: what do users think?


H: I have never had a sublime turkey burger until I went here. Half a pound patties on toasted brioche buns with a side of thick cut fries. Great spot to hit a spot for pub food. The fries were a tad overly seasoned for my taste but I was thoroughly impressed by the burger of the day and the bison burger. Okay service. Restaurant is connected to a hotel in the back. Outdoor patio seating available. Nice atmosphere even though music was a bit too loud at times to converse.

Samar Al Kobrossy: Great place! The food is tasty and flavorful. The portions are big. The decoration is amazing. The waiters are attentive and can give you tips on how to navigate your way around the city. You can sit down, relax, and enjoy your food while listening to some beautiful Irish songs.

Kelly Hyer: Great local choice. Fabulous service and really great food. When in an Irish spot, must have the fish and chips. Seasoned fries- yum. Sooo good, highly recommend. Pretzel stix appetizer delish. Nice kids options too 👌 🌭 🍟

Brett Daviau: Breakfast was great. Salmon bagel with all the fixings. Poor server was trying her best to handle the whole shop by herself. Hope she can get some help. Delicious.

Thomas Suckow: The Monte Cristo sandwich was very delicious, the waitress said it was her mother's favorite and I can understand why. The meat was tender and cut easily with a fork despite the number of layers. Corn beef and hash was the best my wife ever had.

Bobbi DeAnda: AMAZING SERVICE!!! Food was ok, but the service was amazing. So friendly. So fast. So responsive. I actually left my sunglasses and someone ran them out to me!!! The French fries are AMAZINGGGGGG, but the rest of the food was just ok. Fish and chips, fish ok. Burger, ehh. I ordered the burger medium and it was well done. Probably a great spot for drinks and snacks, but wouldn’t go for lunch again. For drinks and French fries, YES!

Edward O'Beirne: Decent menu, good quality food, worth going again. Service was lackluster, possibly an element of understaffed but the place was nearly empty on a Friday afternoon 1pm. Greek salad with salmon was enjoyed. Philly cheesesteak about average. Cold beers. Nice outdoor seating view. Not first choice but would return.

Yvonne: From out of town and the Dubliner was our choice for dinner one night as it was close to our hotel. The service was meh, the place was quaint. The menu is small; however fish & chips were an option, I asked the waiter for his opinion between that and the Irish beef stew. He immediately said fish & chips. Three small strips of dry fish lightly breaded and lacking flavor, at least the fries were good, as was the pickle. I couldn't imagine what the stew was like if the fish was a better option. The salmon pastrami was said to be "ok" by my hubby. For the price of the food and the quality, it wasn't worth it to us, as we have enjoyed Irish pubs and this place doesn't hold a candle to any of them.

craig mossinger: This is an absolute must for lunch! Service is quick and friendly! Fish n chips and the Irish Rueben are phenomenal.

Steve Meier: Great place, and of course what do you order at an Irish Resturant? Fish & Chips and it was probably the best I have ever had. Some of my coworkers were Shepherd Pie fans and a couple others were more traditional and had a Chicken Sandwich. The common theme was everyone was happy with their meal. Service was great and atmosphere was pleasant.

The Crown & Crow: what do users think?


M planetmike: Decorated a bit like a bar from Harry Potter's world, this bar is both cozy and spacious. Hook and the rest of the staff were awesome. Even for a Tuesday night, it was surprisingly busy. This is a bar. Food can be brought in. There is a small stage with a large screen where events are televised or can be used for karaoke nights. Thankfully, this bar minimizes the use of televisions, which are unneeded distractions. This is conveniently located near Thomas Circle and at the Southern end of the 14th Street scene.
Response: You can always count on us for a good time. Hope to have you back for another round sometime soon! -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Christopher Yuen: I was in town for a business meeting and I took a few friends out to this bar on a whim and we had a blast! The bartenders were friendly and the drinks were unique and delicious! I had so much fun I ended up leaving my blazer at the bar. I called the manager Graham a few days later and he mailed it back to me all the way to Connecticut. He’s awesome and this place is too!!!!!
Response: Thanks Christopher, it's our pleasure to host you and your friends!

Melissa Hough: This might be my perfect bar. So warm and cozy, the staff is incredible, the drinks are good. It's never been packed (at least on a weekday night) which makes me feel better about the VID. I'd been here a few times before but last night went for the first time on my Dry January stint and they were awesome. Bartender made a tasty mocktail AND they have non-alcoholic beer! So glad I found this gem.
Response: We're thrilled to be your perfect bar, Melissa. You can always count on us for tasty drinks, even during Dry January! We hope you'll be back to see us again for round two sometime soon. -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Chablis owens: It's the best bar in the city. The owner is an incredible person and if you get the chance to be served by him your night is going to be a thousand times better than you thought it would be. It is legitimately the best experience at a bar in DC you can possibly find. And it's not even a strip club. That's rare.
Response: Thanks for coming by, you rock and were lucky to have guests like you!

Annie: Cool bar with a chill vibe. Came here on a Monday night at 630 and there were only 2 other groups. Not the typical DC bar. There are a few tables and the bar to sit at. The cucumber mule was really good!
Response: You can always count on us for good vibes and great drinks, Annie. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your cucumber mule. Come back and see us for more cocktails in the future! -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Noah Wahquahboshkuk: Aesthetically pleasing atmosphere and 2 sides to choose for your pleasure. The first side is more of an elbow-to-elbow-packed environment with loud music. The second side is a more relaxed spread out environment to hold more intimate conversations with friends. Being new to the area, ordering a beverage similar to the drink of preference (Weiser) was difficult due to the unfriendly bartenders. Kinda gave me the you-don't-belong-here vibe. The suggested brew was not the best, but the gin and tonic was great! Bathrooms clean as well as the main areas. Would come back and maybe study up on what is offered on tap.
Response: You can always expect good vibes from our place, Noah. We’d never want you to feel like you don’t belong here, and we’re sorry if that was the case. Next time you swing by, we’ll make sure to find you a brew you’ll love. Hope to see you back soon so we can impress you with our friendly service and unique tap selection. -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

David Benjamin: Booked a private event in their larger bar area and cannot say enough good things about Lindsay and the team as well as the space. The drinks were great, we received numerous compliments from our guests on the venue, and Lindsay was a huge help planning the whole thing. By far the best, most professional experience I've had booking an event space/bar in the DMV!
Response: We’re so happy you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you so much for the kind words.

Corey Nolan: Always have a great time in this nostalgic Bar. Brian "Bar Man" has done an outstanding job building his dream. Staff is super friendly and they have stepped up their cocktail game since I last visited. Glad I was able to ring in 2022 in such good company! Thanks C&C team! Stay safe!
Response: We're glad to hear you always have a great time with us, Corey. Our friendly staff is always here to take care of you and treat you to a cocktail. We hope you'll be back to celebrate with us sometime soon. -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Adriana Cortés-Buelvas: I absolutely love the Crown and Crow. Great cocktails and a huge offer on drinks. Great indie rock music, feels like an Irish experience.Graham is the nicest!
Response: You can always count on us to show you a good time, Adriana! We're happy to hear you enjoyed your cocktails and the music. Hope to have you back again sometime soon! -Cheers, The Crown & Crow

Adam Adam: I went there for the first time last night I had the worst bartender in town. First he didn't even greet me or anything he walked up to me and asked me very rudely what do you wanna drink didn't, but I seen him greeting other guest properly so if I had to guess it might have to do with the fact I have an accent. I wasn't very familiar with the beers so asked him what's the lighter beer you have he laughs and said Guinness. I never been treated this way in this city.
Response: Adam, very sorry you had that experience, The Crown and Crow's staff represents cultures from 3 continents. One of our core values is that "everyone is invited to the party." I'm Brian, the owner/manager and I bartend on Fridays, please come by and let me buy you a drink and show you the hospitality that we are known for.

The Lucky Bar: what do users think?


Saif Al-Alawi: This is the official supporters bar for Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United. They offer some local IPA and I recommend the 3 Stars if you love your simcoe hops. The bathroom upstairs is a work out but clean. Glad I hit it early before those United fans stunk it up.

Becky Gardiner: Watched the euro semi final here! Great sport pub... Some amazing football scarves all over. Beer flowing and plenty of TV's - staff were really friendly!

Joe Joemer: The breakfast was excellent, the staff was very nice, and the rates were fair. Fantastic collection of draft beers chosen by a beer expert.

Anna: The bold old grumpy bartender (owner?) Spoke at nausium about showing UEFA game only for us to drive 30 minutes. Once we came into the bar, he said "we didn't tell him it was a live stream" (I did twice) and that he had never heard of Paramount . He kept saying that the bar will close in an hour and he needs to have dinner with his daughter (who cares). After 12 minutes of such monologue, we left under his screaming cussing terrade

Alex McKnight: Best bar in DC for soccer fans! I'm a Manchester City fan myself, but Man United, Arsenal as well as national fandoms all congregate here on matchdays and it's always a good time. Drinks are reasonably priced, food is good, can't go wrong. My only advice is to get here early during important matches, the bar definitely has a limited capacity and may not let you in if it has filled up, especially during Covid.

Samantha Elizabeth: After being rejected by Decades nightclub, my boyfriend suggested Lucky Bar for drinks. I liked how dices of different sizes were mounted within the bar counter. When we sat at the bar, at first we had to wait to place a drink order. I asked for a drink menu and the bartender Shannon asked what kind of drinks I liked. They had three types of ciders - Magners, Woodchuck, and Angry Orchard. I ended the night with an Angry Orchard.

Geoffrey Fleming: Excellent bar, good atmosphere for sports and good on prices for both food and drink. Ordered a Philly cheese steak and it was delicious. Great selection of beers and food. Definitely recommend for anyone around the area looking for a good sports bar and excellent service. The bar staff were excellent, especially the lady Shannon who took care of us all night.

Michael Wiredu: The atmosphere is electric win lose or draw. Great place for Gunner fans. And the food is very good.

Todd Boppell: Great place to catch an Arsenal game! Staff is super friendly, breakfast was great, and prices are reasonable! Awesome draft beer selection curated by someone who knows beer.

Skanbass: Good sport bar. I went there a lot during the African soccer cup. One of the only bar that passes the games.

Lost & Found DC: what do users think?


Fred Acheampong: Good selection of beer and liquor, reasonable prices, and fast bartenders. There are several tables with high chairs and a decent bit of standing room. There's also an outdoor area in the back if you prefer the fresh air. They have a few TV's mounted behind the bar and were showing a mix of sports and news.

seanjohn Thomas: Nice Venue ... Boring atmosphere .... Boring beer ... Bartender does not even know what they are serving from craft beer menu ... COVID Claimed.anothe business ... Sad

Omar S: Stopped in on a recent Sunday... Got zero acknowledgement from bartender, nothing. Left after 10 mins. Went across the street to Tallboy's where the staff were more functional. Wasn't particularly busy nor closing time, and it's a small service area at night. Whether bartender was exhausted, bigoted, or on too many substances, they need to try harder (at all). Two stars only because it's a lovely space and convenient to metro.

Siran Skill: As Belgian road tripping through the USA, I've got to admit that the Lost and Found is (for now at least) the place I've the most enjoyed with the best beers for a good price! So thank to them to be there!

Robert Jacoby: Underwhelming bar...even though the drink list looks pretty good. Loud bar, somewhat divey. I was definitely served the wrong beer, although didn’t have time to question it because the bartenders are very inattentive. Had high hopes for this one because it looked cool from the outside, but they fell short. (Not going for lower than 3 stars because if you like the divey, loud scene, you may have a different opinion.)

Edward Grandi: I was there for professional reasons, but looks like the perfect place for an after work drink or a break from the convention center. Can't wait to go there in the future.

Denis Blondeel: Good bar, friendly people. Only bar we returned twice during our stay in DC

Dan Glish: Hey I don't see my review anymore but just want to remind everyone to go to a different business other than this one. THIS ONE REQUIRES VAXX CARDS, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE, DO NOT SUPPORT THIS UNCONSTITUTIONAL BUSINESS!!

Manuel Valverde: Great place to hang out, spacious with an outdoor area.

B Josie: My boyfriend went to Lost and Found on Saturday afternoon before I went back with him the next day. He sat out front. He was smoking a cigar while they served him a drink. If it was not allowed, he would’ve understood but clearly this was okay. So, I tagged along with him the next day. We sat out front smoking cigars as we watched several other people sit at tables smoking cigarettes. They were not patrons. Someone from the bar walked over to us 30 minutes later, letting us know we can’t smoke here. It’s not allowed. It was clearly allowed for the OTHER people that had been smoking but we were told something different I guess. I explained to him we wouldn’t even be here if my boyfriend was told the day before that it wasn’t allowed. He never did give me a response when I asked why it wasn’t a bother for the waiter the day before -_-. I wasn’t trying to step on anyone’s toes but I had to explain how there had been several people smoking here before us that have an affiliation with the art gallery next door. The security guard who works at the art gallery even told us it has NEVER been an issue. And he’s been working there long enough to know that. Clearly it just wasn’t okay for US since we weren’t white. I would never come here again and I’ll let everyone else know not too as well.
Response: Thank you for your review. We do have a non-smoking policy on our patios, but as owners we take responsibility for not communicating this effectively enough to our staff. We apologize for the inconvenience and that you had a negative experience at our bar. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future.

Doyle: what do users think?


Kathryn Corselius: My friend and I just tried this bar for the first time, and we had a great time! It's beautifully decorated and lots of windows give a great view of Dupont Circle. Service was fast, and the food and cocktails were delicious. Food + drinks are on the pricier side, but the experience was worth the splurge for us.

Taeetheproducer: First, let me start by saying WOW! When I first walked into this place, I felt as if I had stepped on a 70's film set. The decor, the music, the cutlery, AMAZING! Secondly, the service from the moment I walked in made me feel as if I was just going downstairs to my living room with some friends. The staff were all so friendly and professional, but not too uptight as to make you feel uncomfortable. I'm no white-collar professional, so it's good to get a little of both. They were very polite in asking for our vaccination cards, and even made a joke to make the request more fun. Thirdly, the general manager Hicham stopped at my table and checked on me and my guest to ensure we were having a great time. Even when he was running around doing 3 jobs at once, he never made us feel like asking a question would inconvenience him. STELLAR! Finally, my guest (who was my brother) absolutely loves bourbon. So naturally, he ordered a manhattan. His reaction was priceless. He could literally taste every ingredient, equally balanced. Needless to say he ordered a few more. I'm not a big drinker, so I naturally gravitated to the food. Good lord. The quinoa salad with feta and chicken was outstanding. So fresh and so clean! If you've gotten this far, congratulations. PLEASE pay this place a visit.

Brenna Holmes: Nice chill vibe, with a decently curated spirits menu. Wine list leaves something to be desired and the service could have been better. But overall it's always a reliable and relaxing choice to grab a nice drink.

Michael Corey: Nice bar and outdoor patio next to Dupont Circle. Interesting historical lecture series hosted by Prof. Smith & Doyle's.
Response: Thank you for the 5-star review. We're pleased to learn you enjoyed your evening at Doyle. We hope to welcome you again soon. Regards, Julian Enright Senior Bar Manager

Sarah Abay: I have been going to Doyle bar for a quite a while more than 10 years. Very classy and pleasant place. Service is the best but lately I don't know who is in charge the music is so loud and the choice of music is more like a club and doesn't go with the bar style. I have known this place perfect for meeting and working very chill gathering the music is changing the mood.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to share feedback on your recent visit to Doyle. The guest experience is of the utmost importance to us, thus feedback like yours is greatly appreciated as our team strives to deliver a memorable experience. As a valued guest, I would welcome the chance to speak with you further and invite you back to allow us the opportunity to make amends for your recent experience. We hope to see you again soon. Regards, Julian Enright Senior Bar Manager

Justin Leach: The servers were very friendly but 4-5 different people visited my table through the night, I wasn’t sure who my server was and who was just there to refill waters because everyone seemed to be switching roles. Even the host refilled my wine. They weren’t even too busy. I never got my salad, which in my situation was fine because I wasn’t too hungry anyway and really just wanted a couple drinks but normally would not be okay, and when I asked for the desert menu it took 20 minutes because they apparently only had one copy and all the tables were sharing it. Again, very friendly but confusing service. Can’t speak to the food because I never ended up getting mine.
Response: Thank you for sharing feedback on your recent experience at Doyle. While we're pleased to learn you found our staff to be friendly, we are disappointed to learn we felt short on delivering a memorable experience. Please know I have shared your comments with our team to ensure the high service standards we have set for our team are consistently upheld. Should your travels bring you back to Doyle, please let me know so I can personally ensure we have the opportunity to make amends for your recent experience. Regards, Julian Enright Senior Bar Manager

Alyssa Miller: I usually love the Doyle however - after over a month of not setting foot in the establishment I was charged over $85.00. Let me be clear - I have not lost my card, it has been in my possession the entire time. It has been impossible to get this resolved and incredibly disappointing in that the likely cause of this was a staff member running my card information and pocketing the money. My goal has been reversed and that has been not only incredibly difficult to do - I have been promised call backs from the manager that have never materialized. At this point I don’t see myself ever going back to what was one of my favorite places to enjoy a drink and wonderful atmosphere and I cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone because they might be stolen from.
Response: Good Afternoon, Alyssa. We are deeply concerned to learn of this issue. After further review, it appears there was a delay of charge from the credit card processing company from your original visit. A member of our team would like to be in touch to provide additional details surrounding this charge. Please be assured that credit card details are never stored in our systems. When convenient, please send us an email with your contact information so we have the opportunity to make amends for this inconvenience. Regards, Julian Enright Bar Manager Hello@doyle.bar

Lina G: The best spot to kill your vibes. I felt disrespected. My taste buds felt disrespected. The three days old burger buns were offensive to my very culinary enthusiastic existence. The pickle wouldn’t take in the knife or teeth. The cocktail tastes like slushy. The bartender attends to customers not in the order of first come first serve, but in the order of shades - of course white to black. The manager looks like he hit the loto making management in the midst of lack of labor in covid era. If you came in ravenous, you’ll leave mortified or else you’ve simply lost your taste. What a shame it’s in the heart of DC. Sat June 25th, 2022. 11pm
Response: Thank you for your review. We are extremely concerned to learn of your recent experience at Doyle. We would like the opportunity to speak with you further to learn more about your visit, address any shortcomings, and see how we can make amends for your experience. When convenient, please send us an email with your best contact information so we can be in touch. I look forward to speaking with you. Regards, Julian Enright Senior Bar Manager Hello@doyle.bar

Hailey Alemán: The food is great, but considering the prices and the automatic 20% gratuity that's added (which is not mentioned on the menu and apparently applies even to parties of 1 or 2), the service needs to be way better. Ordered a glass of wine and finished it, along with my water, before my server ever came back. Someone else's server came back and filled my water glass and brought the check because my original server just walked right by me for literally 40 minutes, and literally never came back to my table despite stopping several times by other tables. Couldn't even catch her eye to get the check. I've worked in food service as well and can't imagine how you justify charging an automatic 20%, a tip for excellent service, when the service is so lacking even when there were two other servers and the place wasn't completely full. Come on guys. Again, the food is great. Maybe the service was terrible because it was an off day. Who knows.

M Whittaker: Fun office happy hour in a perfectly air-conditioned environment! Tasty drinks and snacks for all co-workers!!

Froggy Bottom Pub: what do users think?


Ann Faust: We came here during a quick visit to DC on a Saturday afternoon. The pub food I ordered (Fish & chips) was very nice. Proper fish pieces were hand-battered and fried crisp. One of my kids had the PHÒ and it was unexpectedly wonderful. Simple noodles and meat but the broth were exceptionally good. Moses was the gentleman who served our food. I say he was also a 5-star server, quick, witty and nice. I would definitely like to come back when we are around.
Response: Thank you so much for the great review . We are so glad you had a nice lunch served by Moses . I make sure to let Moses and kitchen staff know about your comment . Hope to see you again in the near future . Best . Hien

M planetmike: At first glance, this looks like any bar/ restaurant in DC. The selections of fried edibles like hot wings, burgers, etc... seems to confirm this. And there is the long bar with Guinness on tap which are also familiar sights in so many other bars. Before you turn to exit to look for a more unique place, or take comfort with it's familiarity, look more closely at their menu. There is a section dedicated to Vietnamese dishes. We tried some and found them delicious! Vietnamese food at Froggy Bottom Pub? These words shouldn't be in the same sentence let alone in the same place. Located at the corner of K Street an 21st Street, this is worth the walk from either GW Metro or Farragut North Metro.

Jessica Martin: Got Pho Froggy to go (go in and ask to order takeout) and it was delicious and fresh. Best part was the kind and considerate service, though. I’d like to go back during their happy hour, since it looks like they have really cool cocktails and I felt a comfortable vibe the time I spent there. Also they clearly mark gluten free (and other allergen) items on their menu, which is always very much appreciated.
Response: Hello Jessica. Thank you so much for great review . I am so glad you enjoyed the Pho and will let my staffs know about your review. Please come for happy hour and I like to meet you. Best. Hien.

Daniel Ruiz-Rossi: Excellent. Really good Chicken Pho. The búfalo wings were fantastic too. It was my first time there. I didn’t feel like drinking tonight but it seems they have really good beers as well. Just give it a try! It’s good.

Cliff Stone: Owners are Vietnamese - two of the nicest and sweetest people you'll ever find. Their little pug was cute too! Traditional food was outstanding. 5-STARS

Cindy Thompson: Variety and quality of food was incredible! We had a great time visiting with the owners while we waited for our food. Service was kind of slow, but they were brand new and she was trying hard! Overall a great experience and we'll be back.

Tina: Unexpected and great place, an odd combination of Vietnamese fair and pub food...everything was delicious. They had a private event when we went but we were able to sit outside, we got Cobb salad, pho and butter pasta (for our little guy). Service was awesome and food was good and reasonably priced. Will definitely go back.
Response: Good afternoon , thank you so much for the great review . We are appreciated your support and understanding . We are glad you had a pleasant time with us and I will certainly let my staff know about your compliment , Hope to see you again . Best . Hien

Joe Weaver: I had the Pho Froggy and it was excellent. Some other members of my party tried traditional tavern fare like cheesesteaks, and it was also great. The place has a nice vibe. The service was fast, friendly, and they got everything right even with a couple of us showing up late. Decent beer selection and good prices for the area. Only minor complaints I would register, and not enough to knock off a star, but I do perceive these reviews as an opportunity to give the owner feedback if they read it, so here goes... 1) the place was slightly warmer than my preference, not egregiously so, but just slightly. We were sitting in the front on a 90 degree day. 2) again, just my preference, but the stools at the high-top tables in the front do not have seat backs. I prefer seat backs for comfort. I would absolutely stop here again if I am in the area.
Response: Thank you for the great review . I’m glad everyone had a good experience with us . I will fix the chair and in-house temperature when you are here . Best . Hien

Francisco Lavorre: Ducked in with the wife for a quick drink and bite as it was the closest place to our hotel that wasn't five-star expensive. Reasonable prices and surprisingly good house beer, wife got a key lime martini that knocked our socks off. Ordered a pizza with low expectations but, again, pleasantly surprised with the depth of flavor. Could've found the same pie for twice the price at a high-end pizzeria. Only thing keeping this hidden gem from five stars was the atmosphere. I don't right much care what music you play in your place of business, as long as it's not blasting; and this was DEAFENING. Not even dancing music, which would've been strange enough in a bar that's obviously not a club, but some kind of electronic alt-folk hybrid. The seconds we had between songs were bliss, and an overworked yet unshakably pleasant server gave us much more time than we needed (outing less than thirty minutes turned into over an hour). If the owners read this, your food and drinks are spot on. Please make it so people dining don't have to yell their conversations.

Katie: My son and I were on a quick trip to DC, and our last meal before leaving the next day was at Froggy Bottom. It was hands down, BY FAR the best meal we had our entire trip in DC. If we had discovered Froggy Bottom when we'd first arrived, we would have visited several times. The first thing my son told my other kids when we got home was about how much we enjoyed our dinner at FB. The owner was there during our dinner, and she was so incredibly sweet. My son is a pretty picky eater, but I convinced him to try my spring roll. He loved it so much that he refused to give the rest of it back. Our server was excellent. We are already planning another trip to DC, and we will certainly be visiting Froggy Bottom when we return!

Union Pub: what do users think?


Jameelah Lewis: So I came all the way from Vegas to have a great time with friends, and we made plans to eat at union pub. The atmosphere was nice, but unfortunately the dining experience differed. We had a party of 8 and they couldn't get anyone's order to the right place and they forgot to bring out requested items. This is not a fan fave and I recommend that you save your coins if you can or try something else!!!

Nickie Bishop: It’s a nice place to stop as there a great patio area and it’s close to activities. We got there on a Saturday when it opened so the service was fine. The food was disappointing. Ordered from the brunch menu - the cheesy French toast was terrible! Flavorless, crusty, cold and barely any cheese. Otherwise the menu was the usual bar food which seemed fine. Hubby had the burger and said it was “OK”. We were here a few years ago on a week day and it had a great lunchtime vibe!

Alexis Green: I ordered buffalo wings and sweet potato fries for pickup. It took about 15-20 minutes. I get there, and they tell me they're out of sweet potatoe fries. So they gave me regular fries instead. I was okay with that. However, when I checked my food, I saw they gave me barbecue wings. They took the food back to the kitchen, came back 2 minutes later and said my order was fixed. I check the food, and the "buffalo" wings looked really dark. The chicken looked different from before, but lighting made it hard to really tell. After coming home to better lighting, and taking a bite, I realized they really did toss the barbecue wings in buffalo sauce. Even the fries still had barbecue residue on them. I may have gotten my money back, but that was a lot time wasted on disappointment.

Richard Mahaffey: Another very nice venue and very popular happy hour gathering place. Patriots are very friendly and happy. Also employees appear to be happy and seem to love their job and the people that come there...

Alex Lafond: Came here alone one night after work for a beer and food, entered through the patio where the was a sign that said "wait here to be seated". So I did. I sat there for 10 minutes while the bartender walked past me 5 or 6 times before acknowledging I was there. When he did, his first words to me were "Can I help you?" in a snotty tone. I replied yeah sign says wait to be sat, and he rolled his eyes and said "Sit wherever you want". Waitress only came over after 10 minutes to take food and drink order. After everything came out, only saw her again when she said, "Would you like the check?". Only reason this review is getting a 2 star and not 1 is because the food was actually ok and not absolute trash. During my time, the bartender just openly complained about anything and everything and was just not an over all pleasant person. I have been back one time since, didn't get any attitude, but service was slow as hell. Likely won't be coming back unless I have no other option or am really hungry and dont want to wait.

Ren Jax: Any place with sweet potato fries is already thumbs up for me. Aside from that, the staff was present, and friendly. The food was seasoned just right, and I loved the portions served. We sat on the patio around lunchtime, which looked like it was used for extra storage space in some sections. A little crowded, the tables and chairs could probably be arranged to better utilize the space, or just use less of them in the space.

Gus Nordhielm: Unbelievably aggressive and condescending manager. She spoke to my partner in an incredibly demeaning manner and refused us service when I asked her not to speak to us that way.

Xenon Booth: Great outdoor space for those not ready for indoor mingling yet. Remember to pack your proof of vaccination and photo ID (not on phone). Drinks are reasonably priced though service was a little slow.

Emily Smith: Definitely check out Union Pub! The bartenders were so sweet and the food was just awesome. Really great atmosphere both outside and in the back at the bar. Check it out asap!

Jason Dubar: We were in the area and needed to escape the heat and find a nice drink to cool off with. So, finding good reviews for Union Pub, we decided to give it a try. I ordered a local beer and my fiance wanted one of their mixed drinks they offer - they were out of the ingredients. Ok, no problem. She ordered a different mixed drink - nope, out of those too. Feeling defeated, she ordered a beer, which the bartender said was good...it was not, but it helped beat the heat. We did not try their food, which must be good, as there was a good sized crowd seated outside.

Morris American Bar: what do users think?


Martin Schmidt: nice atmosphere, slightly too much air-con , or we as European are not use it ?.. We ordered 2 espresso martini, they were average, So much vodka , and coffee was not strong enough. For my taste But their original cocktail were Bom !!! Jamaican twist on Manhattan super tasty . La Reina was soooo good , if you live tequila try this . Overall i would definitely go back
Response: Hi Martin! We are ecstatic to hear you found us all the way from Europe-- it was our pleasure having you! Thank you for taking the time to try our selection of cocktails and for this detailed review (we know a cocktail connoisseur when we meet one)! Looking forward to seeing you in the future !

Bradley Popkin: Swanky and cozy bar with two floors. Spent some time here with family and friends. Great cocktail selection and service. We were greeted quickly and everyone was friendly. I really appreciated the full-size Johnnie Walker figure outside lol.

Neil Patel: The staff are super friendly and accommodating. We ordered off the menu and were pleasantly surprised at how much we liked our drinks. The mocktails and zero proof drinks were great too!
Response: Neil, thank you for your review! We're glad to hear that you had a great experience and we hope to see you again soon!

Andrea Martin: Good drinks, good service. It’s across the street from where Google currently shows. Has an outdoor patio that feels much different than the indoor vibe
Response: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with Morris! Thank you for this great review!

Nirupa P: Good experience. We did the Halloween special & the drinks were good. We both got 3 drinks each & they were great. Our favorite was Noche de sueno & dia de muertos. Food menu were also limited. We got the devil eggs & they were good.

Jeff Wilson: All of the staff (especially Rhine and Rita) are absolutely amazing. I'd previously rated Morris 4 stars several years ago but they've definitely earned all 5. Fabulous cocktails, they can make anything you're feeling in the mood for. Always be on the look out for their special events, especially when they do Filipino food.
Response: Thank you for your kind words and 5-star review, Jeff! Looking forward to seeing you back with us in the future!

Rachel Lipton: The space was thoughtfully designed with a great bar but the drinks were a bit of a letdown - certainly not bad but I was expecting something a touch more exciting (I know they rotate monthly so I’ll be back to try some new ones soon) The vibe was also a touch quiet/empty which was a bit of a bummer since we were celebrating but perhaps it would have been better if we were there earlier or later

Adam Pusateri: Morris is without a doubt an absolute gem of a cocktail bar and my personal favorite. The bartenders are not only inventive but also thoroughly well-versed in classics and contemporary drinks. You can tell the whole team is proud of their bar, and it really shows. The seasonal menu is their own impressive creation, but make no mistake, they gladly take requests and offer new suggestions. Inside is a time capsule of a classic bar. The colors, décor, lighting, music – it is the perfect place for relaxing drinks. Outside is shaded and casual, exactly what you want for a group of friends. Other bars even the often lauded “Bests in DC” have fallen short of what Morris is consistently doing here in terms of quality, knowledge, skill, and service. You get way more than what you pay for here. As amazing as it all is, it is not at all stuffy. Everybody is friendly, easygoing, and enjoys what they are doing. This review is long overdue and could not be more well deserved. Morris often surprises, never disappoints, and after all their extra hard work during the pandemic, I cannot wait to sit at the actual bar again. Until then, cheers!
Response: Thank you so much Adam! So glad you enjoyed your experience.

byron subero: ..... my friends are the worst. They keep sending me places to go to. This was a nice spot. Drinks and the bartender was on point. Ask for Rita. She's a mixologist
Response: Hi Byron, sorry about your friends, but glad you discovered Morris!

Mohan Sun: Our favorite cocktail joint in town! The drinks are top-notch and reasonably-priced. We’ve been to other “good” places that charged $16 for a to-go cup. Morris beats that in so many aspects and it never disappoints. Everyone works there are super nice and knowledgeable. Doug, Ian and Rhine are skillful bartenders who can fix you up with almost any requests. They usually have seasonal cocktail menus and recently added low & non-alcohol drinks which is perfect for a person like me who can’t drink too much. I got Strawberry Kitty last time and it’s sooo good! If you want something refreshing, you NEED to get it! Please support their business. They work hard to stay afloat while continue to innovate great drinks during this difficult time.
Response: Thank you for your review and your support Mohan!

Solly's: what do users think?


Aubri O'Connor: Hands down my all time favorite dive-bar in DC, and I say that with tons of love and respect. There is no pretension here, and all are welcome, you won’t go broke drinking, you can bring your to-go food, and there’s always something fun to do! Aside from their massive, excellent cover patio that lets you watch all the fun of U St, there are also two bars inside. Downstairs is where all the regulars begin and end their night, where the owners are just as likely to be behind the bar as the employees. Upstairs they hold events almost every night of the week - from comedy, to trivia, to bands, to plays. And of course Kostume Karaoke every Thursday, which is a crazy night of doing shots with the KJs on your birthday, and meeting crazy strangers wearing tiaras or judo gis (provided by the karaoke hosts) to sing! The walls tell the history of the bar, especially behind the bar and in the bathrooms. But the bartenders and regulars will tell you just as easily themselves - and what a long crazy history it’s been! Ask them about when the car crashed through the window, or the Caps won the Cup, or the neighbors almost sent it all crashing down during an ill-fated renovation. This is no a fancy dress up joint - although no one thinks twice if you walk in looking your best. You come here to be comfortable, to have well poured, affordable drinks, to have the bartenders become your besties, to meet your new best friends just chilling at the bar.

Quinten Goovaerts: Exceptionally good! Best bar and bartender in town! Lots of different drinks: many beers (local and international) and a lot of really good whiskey's We came there for a quick drink but it was so nice we stayed really long! Super friendly owner and always up for nice chat! I recommend this bar to everyone!!!

Scott Hughes: Solly’s is a perfect two-story dive bar. Memorabilia galore, cheap whiskey, and great service. There’s an ATM inside, Big Buck Hunter arcade game in the corner, and always amazing music playing. Ask for Antoine when you arrive.

Brittany Jeffries: I had a wonderful time at Sollys. I love to karaoke and have been bar hopping around the city trying to find a place. This one is pretty cool. I went in Thursday around 8pm and the bar is upstairs. There is a stage, costumes, and 3 mics available. Sound quality is dope, nice song selection. People actually participated in dressing up as well. I sang about 4 songs and had like 6 drinks LOL. Bartender was amazeballs. I had a fantastic night and can't wait to return.

Edward Kennedy: Went here before a show at the 930 club. Matt the bartender was great. He really knows his stuff. Def will stop by here again.

Richard Derrico: Good local working class bar. Friendly quick. staff. A bit grungy, but that's the character. Good place if your tired of the bling.

Anthony Oakes Comedian: They have great drinks upstairs. I think Quinton is the bar tender. Awesome Starr Struck Comedy shows. Good times were had.

Jessica Williams: If you're looking to tour the real of D.C. and U street, Solly's is definitely a stop you need to make. Real, unique, and a hidden gem that let's you escape the world but still watch it through a windowed nook with beer

Igor at skvltd.media: Fantastic and consistent U st bar with awesome staff, drink specials, and food!

Harriet M: A great dive bar! Friendly bartender, good prices and most importantly ice cold beer! Stayed in the neighbourhood during a recent trip to DC and come to Solly’s twice. Would recommend!

Rocket Bar: what do users think?


Shelley: Cheap drinks and lots of fun and games in this basement dive bar. Pool, shuffleboard, darts, and loud hip hop music. Was packed for a Wednesday night, with mostly hipsters on their 20's and 30's. Our grouchy bartender added to the underground ambiance.

Melinda Nguyen: Very cool place with lots of pool, darts, and games. It was obviously packed on a Saturday night after the Caps game, but still able to squeeze around if needed. There weren't any pool tables or other games available unfortunately. They had 3 bars which was nice so it wasn't difficult to get a drink. I imagine it's much better when it's less crowded. Seems like a fun place.

Nate B: We enjoyed this place. This is hidden gem in the basement. Drinks were good. Service was great. Prices were reasonable. Free popcorn. I would definitely recommend this place.

Baynard Marcus (RUDY): great atmosphere, music, selection of games, darts is so hard to find but they have it here, lounge area is nice, multiple bars and experienced bar tenders, floors were ridiculously sticky, bathrooms seem to not have been cleaned often enough, security was great and overall had a great time and will be back asap🤝

QDotDizzle: One of the highlights of my DC experience... right in Chinatown in the City Center, cheap drinks, friendly welcoming locals, pool, darts, shuffle board, video games, your pickiest friend would be ok wandering around this basement level bar! Must come to if you're in DC

Snigdha Agarwal: Pros: Lots of pool tables. I like that we can bring outside food here. The beer is really nice. Cons: Arcade games are few and they are also quite expensive. The joysticks in pacman didn't work properly. Card payment did not work at the game card recharge kiosk. Overall decent experience and a nice place to hangout with friends.

Gregg Cambareri: Stopped by after a Caps game with some friends. We had a few beers during the game and were very sober yet one of the bouncers escorted my friend out for being "over served" which was completely absurd. A half hour later, I got the same treatment and was also forced to leave for being "too intoxicated." I've never been treated in such a way in any bar, any state. Our group was respectful, well behaved and polite throughout the entirety of the night yet forced to leave for no real reason. I'm not sure what kind of agenda the security staff have going but I would not recommend anyone else go and find out.

J J: Rocket Bar is always a vibe no matter the day of the week. The bouncers are friendly, the drinks are reasonable and the happy hour last until 8! They have games you can play and good music to dance too.

Shannon A. McGhee: It was a rainy afternoon and it was pretty dry inside the establishment. However it not being any patronage in the joint, it was a very n ice establishment to come and get some drinks and get involved playing pool, board games, darts, and dancing. Nice lil get away spot downtown. Check them out and let's help the place get jumping.

Thoff: This place is terrible. Atmosphere was fine felt like a frat party honestly. Me and my friends were having a decent time until one of them got kicked out for absolutely no reason. The bouncer claimed he was far too intoxicated, but we were simply playing shuffleboard. After that, another friend got kicked out! And I saw others being kicked out for the worst reasons. I wouldn’t go here if you don’t plan on your night being ruined.

Lou's City Bar: what do users think?


k J: I ordered the fish and chips and was given the equivalent of 3 fish sticks and some greasy fries. (See pic and pls note pic was taken after one fish stick was eaten. Fries were untouched) After taxes and some ridiculous service fee my total came to $18 and some change. I would have been better off going across the street to Giant supermarket's frozen section and getting some Gordon's fish filets and frozen fries. The only plus was the guy who took my order was was extremely nice and personable. Definitely will not be back and do not recommend
Response: Hello KJ. We're sorry to hear about your experience. Please reach out to us at your convenience (max@leadingdc.com)

E Mack: The good: lots of TVs so you’re guaranteed to see the game. The bad: terrible food, brutal service, high prices, and hidden service fees tacked onto your order. The food I ordered looked like someone had already started eating it, it was all picked apart, and the server acted confused about why I sent it back.
Response: Hello E Mack. Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the environment. As for the bad, we take providing great service very seriously and if there was a lapse, we want to fix it. Please reach out to us at your convenience (max@leadingdc.com)

James Arrington: The food was okay . Little over price for the quality of the food it was loud but it is a sports bar but still there should be area where one can sit down and feel like they don't have to yell to be heard.Service was slow. Appetizer came out with the food . And did I mention that they added a 18% gratuity on a Party of Five. My Party of Five

LuJack Martinez: Lou’s treats you like family—good family, good fun, great service, superb sports environment; AND THEY WILL EVEN LET YOU HAVE A SECTION FOR A BOOK CLUB OR OTHER TYPE OF IN-PERSON MEETING (6 max right now; but max will increase soon).

Rachel Shade: Fun atmosphere, fair drink list. Their soft pretzel left much to be desired and was a little stale. Otherwise it's a nice spot for a bite and a drink if you're in the area.
Response: Hey Rachel. Thank you for your review and positive feedback regarding Lou's City Bar! Please let us know what we can do to gain those extra two two stars!

Neil Cowie: Went to watch the Scotland v Ukraine world cup playoff match, 2.45pm on June 1. Three TV's showing football, all Italy v Argentina, and about ten total customers. I asked if one TV could show the Scotland v Ukraine match, was told no. Makes no sense to me, I won't be back.

Alex Banks: Staff: combative, curt and disrespectful.Food: edible, expensive, ordinary.Overall: Do NOT come here.
Response: Good Evening We are very sorry you had this experience. Could you let us know when you came in feel free to email louscitybar@gmail.com we would be happy to discuss what you experienced today.

Kendra: Go anywhere else instead. The reviews below talking about poor service and combative staff are veeery accurate. The very short man with the dark hair and the mustache is perhaps the worst person I’ve dealt with in the restaurant industry ANYWHERE and I was a server and host for years. I don’t know if it’s a race thing, a woman thing, or my existence just offended him so much that he didn’t think I was worth serving, looking at, or talking to but it was objectively the worst I’ve been or ever seen someone been treated in a restaurant. I can’t even give you a review of the actual food or drinks because I never got any after being there over an hour. The only reason I was there so long was because we were celebrating a really special day for a friend. I tried ordering through the QR code, the item never came, so I tried ordering at the bar to save the hassle for the staff and was ignored and then told he was too busy. When I tried to tell him, in a normal tone, that I had ordered already through app he cut me off told me don’t get angry and sneered at me that he was busy. In an establishment that had about 30 people in it… my party being 10 out of the 30. When we first arrived he misdelivered drinks to our tables (that no one ended up drinking) and things are downhill from there. The whole story is long and no one is going to read past the first line so this summary is the best way for me to emphasis DO NOT COME HERE.

Zachary Reshovsky: Mixed bag on this Lou's Bar. Really wonderful service, but food is somewhat overpriced and isn't always as good as I'd like it to be. I've come here about 9-10 times to watch NCAAF games. Atmosphere is great: TVs/screens are large to gigantic & there is a wide diversity of games available . I've usually ordered a drink or two, a salad, and wings. While food is ok, it isn't on the level of other bars in the locale and is bit over priced. If you're looking for a good place to watch your favorite game and are not overly concerned with quality of food, this place is fine.
Response: Thank you for your review Zachary. We value the feedback of all of our customers and appreciate the positive feedback about Lou's. Your concerns will be shared with staff in order to provide much future experiences.Thanks again for taking the time to write this review.

Rodney Griffin: This is my filth time here and this has to be the best bar in Columbia Heights. I just moved down the street and I love walking down here to get a drink or to watch a game. Joey makes the best drinks and if they don’t have something he makes it work. Krystle is a great host she knows the menu and helps me found something every time. The whole staff is just great.

The Fox and Hounds Lounge: what do users think?


Brian Redder: I confirmed with the waitress before ordering that the online menu was valid, then when she brought the check all the prices were 3-8 dollars more. She said the website was old and it didn’t work that way anymore. She refused to correct it even after i pointed out she said at the beginning the website was fine. Very disappointed as the food was not worth the price. My dish went from $10 to $18. Cannot recommend this place.

Nazanin Eshan: The owner was probably the best part of this restaurant's experience. He was so funny, we almost peed our pants. Food wise, we liked the Philly cheese steak.

Jordan Wolfe: Racist. The bartenders did not believe a friend when asking for their card back, even after multiple white people in the group easily got their cards. Didn’t even apologize after realizing they did in fact have the card. Will not be returning.

M Ramachandran: Great very satisfying and fresh American eats. Like a Midwest diner with fresh veggies and simple, pure ingredients. Incredible staff and patio!

dipika: F&H is a model neighborhood bar. Spacious patio, well priced drinks, friendly owners & service, all around perfect for a no-frills outing. No notes.

Walter Bayer: Cool spot for Monday night beers after a rec league game. Staff is super friendly and drinks are well priced.
Response: Thanks for visiting & sharing your experience with us , it will help us serve you better in your next visit…see you soon!

Candace Walls: Terrible wait staff, random “bar charge on bill” not honoring happy hour when it clearly says on the site happy hour. Too much stuff to list. I will def not be going back

Betty Gonzalez: Terrible service! Bartender was racist toward my friend and tried to gaslight him into thinking he gave my friend his card back, when the card was on the floor behind the bar. Once they found it, they gave it back to him without an apology of how rude he was acting.

Chris Boosalis: verry friendly, owner great personality glad to serve you good food verry reasonable prices plenty choices can't go wrong

soupergrover: I really like this sports bar - usually pretty chill, lots of TVs, good bartenders, and reliable food - with some nice veg options, if you're into that. I'm new to the neighborhood, and have probably gone to watch games about 7-8 times. Bartenders Simon and Alex are friendly and have always changed the channel to watch different games when asked. (I find it odd that some places with TVs look at you like you have 3 heads when you ask to change the channel, and you're the only person in the joint....but not here.) I love the impossible burger and grilled cheese. Very very solid spot, and now my neighborhood go-to when I want to watch a game.

ChurchKey: what do users think?


C Yager: Great craft beer bar, knowledgeable bar staff, 50 beers on tap, wish they had less national/big craft beers on tap and more local. Extensive beer bottle list with hard to find beers, especially good Belgium beer selection. Fast friendly service, hard to notice from the street. Definitely recommend a visit if you love beer.

Jonathan Isett: Top notch selection of craft beers in DC. Also one of the most extensive whiskey/ bourbon catalogs around. Atmosphere is good, and the food comes through. The homemade tots are a must have. Great location on 14th st close to Logan circle. Stop and have a beer or two.

Rossukon Jandech: Beer Brunch Event on June 25th, 2022Great event, great employee, great service.Meet famous brewers there as well, so awesome.

Jeremy Krantz: During a week-long trip in DC, I spent most, if not all of my evenings at ChurchKey. As a craft beer aficionado, this is pretty much a mecca when it comes to beer and their selection is hard to match. You may wonder what's so special about this place and let me tell you straight up that it is their beer. There's little point is coming for wine, or cocktails (although they're not bad at all!) but really what sticks out is their craft beer. They have 50 taps and 500+ of bottles available as well as 5 rotating casks. It's hard to beat. My wife and I got to know the staff really well after a few trips there and they were all super friendly, knowledgeable and they made our experiences there very memorable. I cannot wait to return for many more trips when in town. One pro tip I recommend to everyone is to ask for their master beer list known as "The Bible" which is frequently updated and will allow you to figure out what's available since their selection is so extensive.

Taylor Friedman: I love churchkey but the service here needs improvement. I’ve been twice since they reopened with the latest being a Saturday night around 11:30. Busy but not crazy. Was able to find a seat at the bar. After I sat down it took at least 5 minutes just to get a bartender to acknowledge me. Was handed food and drink menus. After that probably another 5 minutes to get my order in. I thought it was weird that the bartender didn’t provide water when I sat down. I feel that it’s customary to do so at a bar as so not to make people drunk quickly. After I ordered my second drink I placed an order for food as well and was told the kitchen closed at midnight. That would have been helpful to know as I got there at almost quarter til so that was annoying. Shortly before I left there was also a guy at the bar who was passed out and one of the bartenders slammed a bottle really hard on the counter to wake him up and I thought that was kind of unnecessary. All in all, definitely a craft beer Mecca but just keep in mind service can be kinda spotty. (P.S.- they made the place brighter after they reopened so you can actually see going up that long flight of stairs and the menu once you’re inside!)

Levi Wasmundt: It's easy to get overwhelmed by the vast selection of beers on tap, but their menu organizes them well and the bartenders are very helpful in pointing you in the right direction. Ours also offered us samples before we ordered full pours. Good job ChurchKey. Cheers!

Tom W: Great list of beers. Nothing I was too interested in and I love me some craft beers. But that’s not their fault, that’s my palate. The issue was the service being absolute trash when the bar wasn’t even busy and they had ample staff. Drinks took about a half hour to come out so we ended it early and just left.
Response: Hello Tom, I am very sorry to hear about your experience. Thank you for your feed back. We appreciate any kind of feed back that can help us improve. I would love to hear more about your time here. If you would be able to email me at dpitcher@neighborhoodrestaurantgroup.com. Best regards, Dylan

Joe Perretta: Unfortunately, churchkey is the best beer bar for 100 miles. The beer is exceptional and it has reopened without missing a beat in terms of selection. The service is some of the worst for 1000 miles. And let's not blame a worker shortage, it's bad training. Nobody really knows the bottle list, most servers don't know an ale from a lager. I'm glad I had my wine key on me after my own bartending shift elsewhere because my server, who was very kind and affable, couldn't open the bottle I ordered. One of the worst staff training programs in town. I also had to convince another server that I didn't want a taster or full pour, because I had ordered a bottle. Fortunately, the clientele is, mostly, as ambivalent as management so there's no real impact to any of this. But it's just the most amateurish beer institution on the east coast. I'll continue to begrudgingly give NRG my money, but man oh man does it make you hateful to have to open your own bottles after a long shift. I really so hate churchkey.

A small cat (cat): We sat upstairs and it had a better vibe. It does have the same menu as downstairs. There were regular booths, high booths, and bar, tables. Good water. Nice decor. Great atmosphere. We ordered the tator tots - good flavor, wish more crispy on the outside like a thicker layer of it, more like mashed potato inside, salty but not too salty. The chicken and waffles were good but not my favorite. They probably just weren't my flavor profile I like. My husband loved them. The music was loud but not too loud. There were TV's at the bar. A great place to go hang out and have some grub.

Robert Last: Loved this place. Lot's of good beers. Great bartenders and service. I didn't get to try the food this trip.

Duffy's Irish Pub (Dupont Circle NW): what do users think?


M.: Great place to watch a rugby match. Wish they had more than 1 TV outside but whatever, you get to make friends. Local teams also hang out here, and it was fun to meet some other players. Would recommend. Food was also well beyond typical pub food and was in fact quite good.

SM Smith: Eli was hospitable the other night, but his “boss” or manager so hyperactive tonight. Yelled at an older man who mistakenly lit a cigarette. When I asked about the whereabouts of Eli, got angry and ego-centric that he was Eli’s boss, and that he had sent him home earlier, blah blah. Who cares dude? Just be a top notch friendly bartender, not a rude dude. You need to seriously chill. This place could be great, but needs some ego check. Was fine earlier in the week food-wise and service-wise before anti-customer service reps came in to swing their experience and ego against easy customers. Hire new people to make your vibe right.

John Evans: Great experience at a long time DC restaurant relocated to my neighborhood. Loved the fish and chips recommended. This is the new West End spot for casual dining, beers, drinks and sports TV everywhere. Happy Hour prices for food and drinks. Wings!!

BigMaMaSaiyan: I LOVE the Buffalo wings. The bleu cheese dressing is fresh and full of cheese. These alone are worth the trip. Good service and even better drinks make it a fabulous date night.

bigman250: I went to this place on the recommendation of my friends for their good food.. I got an attitude from the guy taking order. I asked him he was having a bad night. he said no. I am a black American, the only one in the restaurant, he was not accommodating at all. I ordered a ruben and fries and a Guinness while I waited he acted like I was bothering him with my request. I told him if he did not want my business I would go else where. I know when I am disrespected after my order was filled. If you are a POC, do not go to this place unless you want to be disrespected. The Rueben was not that good too.

john hammond: The menu was pretty much what you would expect --- basically fried. But, suprisingly, it includes a number of Central American dishes. The deal breaker was the insouciance of the management and server. Never again.

April Thomas: This Pub is exactly what you want to fall into whether you have been here before. Great atmosphere and you can't get better "family ' feel. Love you guys~when you come to Phoenix, let us know!

Parker Kelley: We googled this place and saw it was noted for the best wings in DC! We had to try it ! I got the fried chicken burger which was good, but wasn’t the best I’ve ever had. My fiancé got the wings with hot barbecue & Buffalo hot - he says they were 10/10. We were expecting the wings to be tossed in the sauce instead the sauce was poured on top, however, it didn’t take away from the flavor ! The atmosphere was great & we came on Tuesday trivia night. Would definitely recommend it to others for the wings !

Martin Brennan: Great little bar excellent food and service.Richard and his Staff are amazing and the bar captures a great friendly atmosphere. Well worth a visit. Definitely will visit again in the future.

Jen Putnam: I LOVE DUFFY'S!!!!! Great rugby bar! Fantastic atmosphere and Ruchard is the best bar tender! (Nolan is ok too. 😉)

Across the Pond: what do users think?


Mark Darwin: Low key bar with a great selection of beers on tap. Didn’t try the food, but the options looked good.

Gina Elliott: I had my fathers 60th birthday here. The booking of the event was easy and the menu that was provided was great. The waiters and bartenders were quick and friendly. We had a chance to meet the owner while we were there and he was friendly and appreciative. I Love to support local business and I’m glad to have them in the city.

Amanda Casillas-Gallegos: Delicious Fish and Chips. Thick and great tasting!! Also tried the Cornish beef and macaroni w/cheese. Tried their Mango Beer, my son tried a Guinness and we LOVED IT!! Be careful menu does not show pricing!!

Jessica Flowers: Nice place for a drink in the late afternoon/early evening. I was easily able to get a seat at the bar for a couple of drinks and listen to the guys behind the bar talk about Derry Girls. Still couldn't find anything about season 4, but nice place. I can't believe I never tried it when I lived on Connecticut Ave a few years ago.

Jasmine Kaidbey: Watched the caps game here and will definitely be back. Very friendly and welcoming staff, prompt service, nice game atmosphere. Menu offers lots of options beyond the quality of your average sports bar. Glad to have tried it out!

Joshua Worthey: Great bar with great atmosphere and great food. We descended upon this place this last weekend. They didn't realize the convention was happening but overcame the issues as they piled on. This will be my go to when in DC from now on. Smaller place so not too crazy or loud.

Peter Pellegrino: Across the Pond is an awesome place! Service was spectacular and the food was authentic and out of this world. They always have so many options for sporting events on the tv’s. Their live music is always good and the speaker system sounds amazing.

Patrick Savoia: Came here for F1. Had no race specials and their brunch specials ended at 1pm. The food itself was passable at best and my cheese fries were clearly sitting under a heat lamp for quite some time. A table next to us never even get their food after waiting nearly 90 minutes.
Response: Patrick, Thank you for your feedback. You happened to come into Across the Pond under irregular circumstances. We had cook no-show yesterday and by the time we were able to get another cook to come into work, the kitchen already had 25-30 tickets of food orders. Unfortunately, it took most of race for the kitchen to get caught up with orders. We have over 4.5 stars for our food and I’m happy to offer you a discount on your next meal to show you why we have such great reviews for our food. Thank you, ATP managment

Jim Laurenson: An oasis in the storm! Literally, it was storming and I was on my bike, so I Googled the nearest pub and found this excellent pub. Didn't look like much from the outside, but I persevered, found lots of nice people -- both guests and employees -- had a couple of excellent brews, and onion rings to die for!

Rita S: Drinks were inexpensive, fills up quickly when games are on so get there early

Board Room: what do users think?


Emilie Buck: This was such a great find! My girlfriend and I were walking around DuPont Circle and stepped in to Board Room. There are two floors inside with ample seating. They don't serve food, but they have a discount with the pizza company nearby or you can bring in food from outside. There were a bunch of games to choose from, covering all genres, amount of players, and skill level. The bar also seemed well stocked, and the bartender on duty seemed nice. I'd definitely go again.

Abdul Kader Surti: I absolutely love board games and this place has an amazing collection of games. The drinks are great and they make a mean spiked hot cocoa! I wish there were some snacks to munch on, other great place to hang with friends

Ciara B: Margarita pizza was disgusting. Came out lukewarm (barely that). No taste and just a real disappointment. Do not order. Atmosphere is nice and they have a large selection of board games

Samantha: So much fun to grab a few friends and shake off the workday here. Their happy hour deals are insanely good, especially for DC. $4 rail drinks & $4 drafts. Games are free to rent during happy hour, too! Loved the bartender.

Kyle Goodman: An amazing place to hang out! Board game selection is excellent, drinks are tasty and the atmosphere is just what you're looking for. We have visited DC twice in the last couple months and this has become our go to spot. You know you're in the right place when they play Jeopardy! on the TV.

Helen Michie: Attractively decorated Dupont Circle bar and young adult hang out spot in a very trendy DC neighborhood. Great place to have a party. Has unisex bathrooms.

Jeff Corcelius: Good drinks, awesome courteous staff! Go play, drink, and have fun!

Cimmanon K: Went here right after going to a sushi bar, and boy did it scratch the right itch for game night lol. I wasnt told about this place, as bringing me there was a surprise, but the miniature golf, the drinks, and the company were all wonderful. Great staff there too!

Andriana Genualdi: Great bar for chill hanging out with friends. I went there recently in the late afternoon to play some board games with a couple of friends and we had a great time. We ended up sitting at the small round high top tables that’re near the bar, there was enough room for card games and battleship but I suggest if you have more than 2 people you pick a larger table so you don’t have to worry about losing pieces onto the floor. My friends seemed to enjoy the beer selection and I opted for a glass of house wine on happy hour

Lucius Domitius Aurelianus (Augustus): Good selection of drinks and games to play, its also possibleto hear each other in most parts of the time. Only problem you'll run into is the lack of seating!
