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.

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.

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.

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.

Shenanigan’s Irish Pub: what do users think?


Gabe: The bar staff was hella nice, but this isn't a friendly venue if you're a specialty performer. I always had fun at Shenanigans as a customer. Being told to change in the bathroom, having nowhere to put your belongings, and standing outside the bathroom (in basically your underwear) with all your stuff while a line forms... is not a pleasant experience. And apparently someone yelled at the other performer to get out of the only other place we had permission to change -- and that they could change in the bathroom -- in the middle of our performance? We only needed a couple more minutes to pack up and leave. That was embarrassing. Not a great night. :(
Response: 2 days before the private event the organizer inquired via a simple one question text asking if we had another place for people to change besides the bathrooms. I replied there was not via text back. Nothing was ever further discussed or requested about a changing area besides the first text message. We provided the venue free of charge and fulfilled all that was requested of us. Which was the venue, a seating area, security and access to our sound equipment. I even provided a sound tech and DJ free of cost.

Jackie O'Shea: My bar tender was amazing ! EVA was one of the best bar tenders I’ve had (and as an Irish drinker I’ve run into many bar tenders) I would come back every night if I could but only if she’s working !

Cate Vonich: This is a really fun bar heads up it gets very crowded so be prepared for it to be shoulder to shoulder everywhere until about 2 AM. Super fun staff and you can never go wrong getting a Guinness!

Yarborough Cleland: a relaxed bar with friendly patrons. Weeknights are rather relaxed, and compared to other bars in Adams Morgan, the drink costs are reasonable.

m rivera: A low key pub with chill people. Weeknights are pretty laid back and the prices for the drinks are affordable compare to the other bars in Adams Morgan. Weeknights are more busy since they have an open bar starting at 9pm, that tends to attract more of a younger crowd. The food is decent if you want something to munch on.

Chrissie Lacy: Just wanted to take a moment to recognize good people - bartender Ross took great care of our bachelorette group, and went above and beyond to help our friend who was having a rough night. Thanks for being so caring and making sure we got her home safely!

Matthew Lawlis: Not a real irish pub. As someone who loves irish pubs (the happiness, the music, the culture) i was disappointed by this place. It seems more like a dive bar atmosphere wise as it is does not hold that Irish pub warmth. It does have a food menu but of the three times i was there only once was the kitchen open, and only some of the fair is irish pub food, there is much better around. The worst crimr however is how cold and unwelcoming they are. 2 of the times i came in and it was dead yet no one acknowledged me. I waited 10 minutes and left. The other time they looked at me weird when i asked for food. I just find the place the opposite of what is advertised. Its a cold and hard dive bar, not a lively and friendly pub. I recomend staying clear.
Response: I am very sorry for the inexcusable service. Our kitchen is open until last call so please provide me what days of the week and time you visited. There will be consequences for the bartender/server on duty during your visit. However you are very misinformed about our beer selection. We carry 16 authentic Irish Beers including 6 on tap. That is the largest selection in Washington DC. We offer standard Irish Fare Shepherd's Pie, Guinness Beef Irish stew, Bangers n Mash, Fish n Chips and Corned Beef.

Colbey Steeke: Fantastic service. The bartender Eva was excellent. And the food was outstanding

popupdon: Great selection of Irish whiskeys and beers. Hour power on Saturdays 9-11 pm. $10 open bar. Good food too. Recommend the bangers and mash.

Queen Afua: Great quite place was an unexpected visit as the place we was planning on eating at was closed for renovations and we wasn't sure about the other restaurants and place had a 25 minute wait. We spotted Shenanigans and was unsure about it as it was of course all men inside but we sat down to have our lunch meeting and surprisingly we enjoyed the drinks and the food and the staff was friendly nice place to visit

Kirwan’s on the Wharf: what do users think?


Abhinav: Food: 3/5 Ambience:4/5 Service: 3.5 /5 The patio of this place on the wharf is pretty cool. We went there just because of that. The food was very mediocre for the prices they charge. We went around 9:15am, we had to ask for the menu twice, ask the waiter to bring cutlet after food was served. We were give only one menu card for a table of three. I guess the waiter was tired for the day but nevertheless expected better than that.

Kyle D: Cool place at the Wharf. Nice atmosphere, however the food was just okay. I’ve had better fish and chips before (the breading fell off the fish and didn’t seem to be seasoned as well as it could). The crab cake appetizer was very good, however.

Travis Alvarado: Service was good and location wasn't bad at all with seating outside, indoors on two floors. Lighting on the inside was a little dark for my taste after the sun went down. The food was great. The Flat Bread Pizza, and Fish and Chips seemed to be what everyone was getting besides all the drinks. Overall I enjoyed it and would go back again for the food and staff.

Antoinette Levon: Service was good. Cocktails were tasty. Food was ok. The Mushroom Soup was really good. But the Caesar Salad lacked dressing and some of the lettuce was brown and old. The gnocchi and squash dish was ok as well. The Pot Pie tasted like it needed something. was a bit bland. Overall it will do if you are hungry and want a drink before our concert. Next time we will try somewhere else.

* dnainsb: Really nice Irish pub located directly on the wharf. It has covered outdoor seating that it is beautiful. The food is classic English pub food. For example Shepherd's pie, bangers and mash, fish and chips, the menu is quite large if English pub food is not what you're looking for. There's a lot of alternatives. It's a really great place right on the wharf.

Paul LaVigne: Kirwans on the wharf is located right at the waterfront and is a good place to go if you have a hankering for Irish pub food. The location is excellent, and the interior is decorated very nicely, but the back room Bar area was exceedingly warm. That would be ok on a cool evening, however it was 90+ degrees when we went in and they’re looking to get relief from the heat. The bartender/waitress who served us was very nice and did a great job of making us feel comfortable. The food was superb as well. I had the bacon and cabbage meal which consisted of pork loin, bacon, cabbage and I opted for the sweet potato fries. It was one of the best pub meals I’ve had. My wife had the lamb burger with colcannon mash. She said it was the best burger and mashed potato dish she’s ever had.

catch_hug: Great for beers and a quick bite. Waiters seem all very good trained and attentive. Food was spiced dezent and authentically, even though the tuna poke (wich btw is not what you are serving) was way too much sesame. Local craft beers on tap, try the sour.

Sam D: Stopped here to avoid the humid day. Great atmosphere and cool a/c. I grabbed a Chicken Pot Pie and it was the best crispy crust and chicken was on point. Highly recommend 10/10

Elizabeth T.: We stopped in here for a few drinks after a free concert and we’re happy with the prices considering the area. We stayed for a few appetizers and I honestly wasn’t that impressed. It did it’s job with curbing my hunger but it was enough for us to choose to go somewhere else for dinner. They sat us quickly and the waitress was very attentive to our needs and brought out the food quickly.

Thao Huynh: Great views and service! The seafood tasted fresh, but it just felt like it needed some more flavor. The drinks were honestly not that great but they look good. Bathrooms look cool but there needs to be more light. For the prices, food quality could have been better, but our server was amazing.

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

Irish Channel Restaurant & Pub: what do users think?


M Atienzasis: Across from Saint Mary Mother of God R.C. Church NW Washington DC, 15 min from Union Station. Interesting Irish stop spot with an active bar/restaurant serving lunch & dinner with attentive staff, try generous serving of ceeamy tomato soup & special grilled cheese sandwich with bacon & tomato. Authentic Irish decor sparking some nostalgia.

Ty Clement: Everything was good but it was more expensive than it deserved to be. It's connected to a hotel so I think that's why they can justify charging more. The staff, while friendly, were inattentive and I often had to walk around the bar to find someone.

Jennifer Winand: This place is a must do! We were greeted with ice cold water as soon as we walked in (we had walked a mile to get here and it was so hot out). We had the best Shepherds Pie I have ever had and a delicious creme brule for dessert. Cozy and welcoming atmosphere. The best part? The most AMAZING staff. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Dan Saunders: Great place to grab a proper breakfast and watch the football. The service was great and showed many screens for the football. As a spurs fan it was great to watch the games amongst like minded fellow fans. Also the beer price was not too expensive with an offer on when spurs were playing.

Richard Svagerko: Had the Shepards Pie, and it was good. Our group had several beers that we thought was a little expensive. The atmosphere was good because of the large friendly group of Police Officers that were there celebrating National Police Week. Service was a little slow though.

mike cook: I can't say enough about this place,awesome staff,very clean and the food was excellent. Met the owner had a great talk and he bought me a pint.my new go to irish pub in d.c.You owe it to yourself to go here first when looking for a place to watch a match,grab a bite or a pint of Guinness!!!

Croom: Food was good but over priced for what you got. $19 shepherds pie worth $12 max, Reuben meal for $15 with $10 and a $12 cocktail that was basically water. The environment is cool though. We went on a Thursday evening and parking was difficult.

Soren Dews: Bayron was an amazing server. He was just the right amount of attentive to take care of us but not overbearing. His personality was great, really nice and friendly. To top it off it was his first day serving! Thank you!

Diane Bencemulkerrin: I had the Spice Bag and wow it was amazing! Service was fab my husband had the Cheeseburger and said it hit all the right spots came in to get set up for the Luton v Huddersfield match and got it sorted in no time nothing is too much trouble Will definitely be coming back!!!

Nancy Ammann: The food is amazing! It was genuinely better than anything we had in Ireland! And the live music was lovely. I'm so glad we found this gem!! Guiness stew is a Must!!

C F: Yum! Food, service and prices are great. It's an older bar with plenty of seating indoors and some seating outdoors too. I tried the chicken tenders, burger, fries and tots. If you like tots, this is your place!! I've also had the fish and chips before and it's good too. Everything comes out fresh and hot!!

brandon cozad: I have attended this pub multiple times since 2006. The food and service is good. Typical Irish fare. The atmosphere during is legendary if you're a police officer and attend during National Police Week, as Kellys' is the go-to location to hangout.

Beth Diaz: Best hang out during police week- get there early if you want a table and expect to be there till closing! Great time.

blessone74: The food was very delicious 😋 I must say.

Lavender Kelley: This bar near Union Station makes for a welcoming place for travelers but it's truly a locals bar at heart. The staff are what make this place great but the beer selection is solid and the food is very good too. Also, you can spend hours looking at all the various law enforcement patches.

Craig Wasielewski: Looks are very deceiving. Inside it's rough around the edges, patrons are regulars and made me feel right at home. Try the shrimp and cod platter deep fried. The tater tots were amazing and you get so many of them. The Caesar salad with grilled chicken was a very nice portion. Drink prices also very reasonable. They do have live music.

Cheap Laugh Kennedy: This has really gone down hill. Went there for the first time after Covid hit and it just wasn't the same. I hope it improves, use to be a great place.

Buster Doney: Good service but the burger and fries leave much to be desired. I ordered my burger medium rare and it came out grey, well done. No flavor whatsoever. And the fries look like sysco fries, nothing like the skin-on potatoes in the photos for this place. Good place to grab a drink though if you're visiting from out of town and going through Union Station.

C B: The staff was very friendly and polite plus the pub food was good and tasty. The wall is decorated with police emblems from across the country and is located within walking distance from the train station. We will return!

Joice Tjen: My favourite food here is the corned beef. It's tender and tasty, served with cabbage, potato and carrot, all are tender and full of flavor. This feels like a very healthy meal!

Present Company Public House: what do users think?


Matthew Murphy: Great neighborhood pub! Very nice craft beer selection and the food is excellent - the chef comes from fine dining and is basically doing elevated casual pub food. Lots of awesome vegetarian options too and the staff is always friendly and attentive. You don't see quality neighborhood pubs like this in DC too often anymore!

Jess: My boyfriend and I stayed nearby so we literally had brunch, dinner and dessert (not all in the same day) but service was polite and speedy, wait staff checked in regularly to ensure everything was okay/refill drinks. Menu a bit smaller in selection however great quality and presentation. Really enjoyed the outdoor lighting and even inside had a cool relaxing vibe with music and comfortable seating. Would definitely come again- probably for dinner their burgers were our favorite and their drink specials looked awesome.

Natalie I: I cannot say enough amazing things about our experience here and with Lauren. We had a welcome reception the night before our wedding upstairs in the Dalmation room with about 40 attendees. Everything from beginning to end was handled wonderfully in terms of planning. We wanted something simple and just wanted to create an atmosphere that would give us more time to bond with our guests. And they delivered! The room was set up perfectly with open spaces but also seating for those that needed to sit. The food was set up in the corner, allowing photos of the awesome mural in the background. The food was also AMAZING!! We heard so many compliments from folks - especially about the mini boa w/ bacon, nashville hot chicken sliders, and tuna tartar. My personal fave is the onion tip with the inhouse made chips. We elected for an open bar with whatever guests wanted to order. I was worried this may be overwhelming to the bartender (not having any preset drinks for group this size) but he handled everything perfectly. I never waited for a drink and never saw anyone else waiting for a drink. If you are planning an event, I recommend this place! Such a unique space with a team that really cares about their business, food and giving you the experience you want and deserve.

Aaron Schinstock: We have lived in the area for about two years and eat out regularly. Lots of places have great service. There are tons of places with great food. Some even have sublime drinks. This is the first place where we had all 3 effortlessly. Plus, the ambiance is superb. If you’re looking for an ideal dining experience, this is your spot. If you want it at a reasonable price, this is your lucky day. If you’re willing to “pay for quality”, I’d still recommend this restaurant. There are places where you can pay more, but nowhere where you can get better food AND service. We are particular about our BBQ. When we were considering the burnt ends, the chef sent out a sample of their sauce (amazing). We hadn’t eaten here before and our server suggested one of us should sub the tots for our fries. Excellent suggestion. Our server was the head bartender and yet the other restaurant staff ensured we were never even remotely neglected when our server was busy. I can’t think of a single thing they could’ve done better. If I could give them a million stars, I would. If you’re still reading this review, STOP READING AND JUST EAT HERE.

Imdancer D: All star. The brunch and bottomless mimosas were incredible. Really though, our server Bianca was so awesome. She helped us out finding things around the city and was just an overall warm, sunny person. Great food, great service!

Arik D. Brown: The food we tried was very good. I really enjoyed the wings and Vegan Curry Bowl. My wife also enjoyed the Ahi Tuna Burger.. Service was very friendly as well. The only thing that was not optimal was the wait for the food. There were very few customers and it took awhile for our food to be served. For most of our time my wife and I were the only ones dining inside. I would definitely recommend this place!

Julia Xia: Booked Present Company for 2 private work events - beautiful, intimate venue with red brick walls and a mural upstairs. Food was yummy and Lauren is so kind and a joy to work with! She answered all my questions in a timely way, gave thoughtful recommendations about our food orders, and made everyone feel welcome. The bartenders were great too and served a hot bourbon cider that i drank way too much of!

Lyndsey Clos: I came here for my graduation brunch with a party of 12 and this was the best experience I’ve ever had at brunch in DC. I brunch a LOT and Lauren is by far the best, most shining personality I’ve had. She made our experience so fun and pleasant, and I cannot recommend this enough! I can’t wait to go back. PS - the orange crush and avocado Benedict are to die for.

Jay Bauer: I love this place! Great vibe, awesome service / people, and insanely good food for a neighborhood pub/restaurant. DO NOT sleep on the tuna burger! Upon first bite it instantly became my go-to favorite. Don’t be fooled by the description, like I was initially. Typically I prefer a filet cut if ordering a fish sandwich - so when I saw that the tuna was ground, I shied away. Eventually I got talked into it by a former bartender, Patrick, who said it was hands down his favorite thing on the menu. Well, I did and now it’s mine as well. I’ve literally ordered it for lunch and then gone back and had it again for dinner on multiple occasions. So, to sum up…get yourself to Present Company and if you’re hungry, grab the tuna burger - you’ll thank me later. If you see a ꓭ. sticker behind the bar, that’s me! Be present. Be company. Just BE. Love this place, you will too…but try and keep it our little secret! Enjoy!

Chris Taylor: Big, interesting space with a cool history. The space had fast service, interesting drinks, and a standard dare menu that was nevertheless very tasty. Great spot if you're looking for a simple crowd pleaser.

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. 😉)

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.

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.

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!!

The Game Sports Pub: what do users think?


Patrick Poculan: Must try dinuguan! Crispy pork belly was perfect and the noodles. They have great cocktails too. Nice patio location and great service

Jay Vizcarra: Sports bar with Filipino food and Tiki drinks? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat! Nicely tucked on 18th street with phenomenal food and plenty of TVs to catch any game (F1 included). Upstairs hip Tiki restaurant. Food is to die for! Pancit topped with Lechon? Halo Halo, Ube Cheesecake!!!

Lauren Toms: Had the best time here watching our team in March Madness! Tristian was a saint and went out of her way to make our experience fun and memorable. We’re so grateful!

Paul Delagrange: We went the Game on a Saturday to watch football and grab a couple of beers. Plenty of TVs, good seating, super friendly staff!! Their selection of bourbons is fantastic. One of the owners told us he sells the bourbon he has at his own house. We only had the Lumpia but man was it good!! Authentic and fresh!

jemmairose eddy: I would have given this bar a 3 star if my Sisig dish was good and also I ordered a Martini and it was served in a tiny margarita glass. My hubby was happy with his spicy chicken sandwich. The egg rolls and shrimps appetizers were good too. Then the bill was over $90 for the 4 dishes and 1 drink.

AJMDF LOCA: Fabulous! The food is divine. The cocktails are addictive. Atmosphere is chill!
Response: Thanks for the kind words. Please join us soon!!!

Sally Xmd: The only reason it isn’t 1 star is because the wait staff are amazing and attentive. Review is purely based on food, no drinks ordered at this location. First off, holy fry oil Batman- this fry oil is older than my cat. Fries so dark they look like they deserve reparations. The chicken skins are questionable at best. Weird texture and off flavor. Got the Nashville chicken sandwich and same issue. I don’t know what they coat their chicken skin in but this black woman from Kentucky does NOT approve. The final straw was they serve burgers, but have no gluten free buns. Unacceptable as they are literally 25 ft (or less) from the best gluten free bakery in the whole state. *bonus points that they partner with tiki on 18

Punk Pagong: Awesome food and drinks, great atmosphere and pleasant staff. IG@punk_pagong

Yohannes Tafesse: The food was great. However, our bartender Shaena was terrible. Our food took forever and when we asked how much longer, she yelled at us, I can get you to go boxes if you like. She even did get us to go boxes as soon as our food arrived. It was a very disappointing and disrespectful experience.
Response: Yohannes, Sorry for your experience with us. We have addressed these issues and it took longer than anticipated. We would appreciate you giving us another opportunity. Hope you will. Cheers,

William Schuster: I mistakenly placed this review for Tiki on 18th prior and realized that this bar is a separate entity entirely but located below. TLDR: Visited this place Saturday night. This place had mediocre service and was overpriced, expect to wait a long time for warm drinks. Last night we visited a couple of bars on 18th street in celebration for my friend and unfortunately this was our first stop of the night. We got there around 10:30 and the place wasn’t too packed. There was immediate seating available for all 6 of us. That was nice. The management must be unaware that there’s limited phone service in there because it took a while for the menu to load from scanning the QR. I don’t know whether there is or isn’t any physical beer menus. I waited after ordering 2 beers for myself and 2 beers for my friend over 25 minutes from when we were seated until when the beers were brought to the table. I say this because around 10 minutes into waiting I looked over and saw the four beers were sitting in cans, opened, on the bar counter. I kept my eye on those until we got them and yes they literally let our drinks sit out and get warm before serving them. Keep in mind the bar was not in any way overrun during this time. It seemed like a Wednesday night in the place. We received the drinks and they were absolutely warm but our mixed drinks that my friend ordered didn’t come for another ten minutes. I had to ask and wait again for a glass just to put my warm beer into. You would think for $8 a single can of beer could be poured into a glass first, right? As we tried to split the table into two bills the bald bartender came over and got angry. This starts the verbal altercation! (Is the customer not always right?) He kept saying and raising his voice “it’s house rules we can only accept two cards and can only do 50/50”. We were only requesting to use two cards but have our bills split differently because there were two subgroups to our outing. We weren’t at any point asking for every single one of us to be charged separately. While I realize that’s complete BS I wanted nothing more than to leave after being there so long for warm beers and terrible service. So I said “take my money I want to leave and I will not be back” about three times. He kept arguing and yelling “It’s house rules!” In response even though I was agreeing and knew I was about to be changed $58 for 4 warm canned beers. I still tipped our waitress even though she didn’t seem to care about the terrible service or the fact her manager was being a child. The unfortunate reality is that this is what most bars are like in this area. Incredibly over priced, terrible service, and the customer is never right. It was two minutes later he swiped my card and I was able to leave. The bottom line is the staff here are either rude, not trained enough to do their job, or too busy dancing to the music to provide you with service. It was funny hearing him say he wasn’t arguing with me after raising his voice. “ITS HOUSE RULES!” Will now be used by my friends and I every time we have terrible service. Note to management: I have used that exact point of sale / merchant services software I saw on your tablet. I know it’s absolutely possible to fix the error of our waitress for not splitting the tab. Which we initially asked for. I wanted to like the place but in reality everything about our experience sucked. If you want to have a better bar get better employees or train them better on the software. If you just want to keep partying behind the counter and serving guests overpriced warm beer then so be it, but there’s totally more people like me who LOVE to leave honest reviews. I have no regrets about causing a little scene because this place really did let me down! I am anticipating a response to this review in which you paint me as the bad guy in order to cover your own, however if you apologize and promise to improve that would look much more professional. Let’s see how the management reacts to this honest review, shall we?
Response: William, We apologize about your lengthy time on waiting for beers. Completely agree - regardless of how busy or not busy you shouldn’t wait that long for beers. I do understand your frustration with the QR Codes. It’s pretty much a standard everywhere nowadays after COVID. The efficiency with them is great. As for the issue with service we are aware and offer WIFi throughout the building. No password is required. As for splitting checks - yes it’s possible and yes the server should have been more accommodating and it will be addressed. Guest service should be still a priority and that is not the right way to handle on our part. In our defense we clearly state on all menus at the top that we boy split checks on two cards. This is obviously to be more effective on our part. Still not an excuse on the additude given to you. Lastly as you highlighted we are priced competitively to our neighbors. So realistically we are not over priced. Sorry you felt that we are. Please let us know if you choose to give us another opportunity. Email us so we can ensure you have a great experience. contact@thegamedc.com Cheers, Management lol

City Tap House Penn Quarter: what do users think?


Juice: Went for lunch after being told it was a great place to eat... I was very disappointed! While the food as you can see presents well the taste on the other hand is nothing special. The Ahi I felt was cut a bit thick and the sauce tasted like jar buffalo sauce, the mussels smelled when brought to the table, I tried a few but they tasted dirty, and the margarita I ordered had the most tart(est) mix I've ever had, I needed to add pineapple juice to cut the tartness. A plus is the atmosphere and our waitress was cool, and the location is close to shopping, however I do not think I will be returning at least no time soon.
Response: Sorry to hear things weren't up to your expectations Juice! Pineapple juice in a margarita? Hmmmmm.

Stephen R Roderick (Thae): I was disappointed after reading good review on this place. Next time, I would go to Yard House over here. The beers were great! The pretzel app was really good, but the Brussels sprouts were actually good and the fried cauliflower Buffalo overpowered the overall dish and it wasn’t good. The margherita pizza was the worst- it was like someone who never made it before made it. Like I said the beer was great and the service was good. The food was just ok.

Mikaila L: We came in late in the night around 10:30pm after not being able to find any available or open restaurants on a Friday night and we were able to be seated right away! We are so glad we found this place. The music was great & we had fast service. I ordered the Caesar salad with added avocado. The crostini with it was such good addition and the salad was honestly perfect. It was so delicious, it was one of the best Caesar salads I’ve had. I could eat that all the time lol. The only thing I didn’t like was the added cost of the avocado was $2 and they gave us maybe 1/8th of an avocado but other than that it was great. We also shared a dessert, we had the skillet cookie with vanilla ice cream and it was amazing! The prices were great as well and very affordable. I would highly recommend it here!

Steven Hernandez: The server was nice and we didn't have to wait too long for our orders. These are pictures of the Cuban. It was pretty bad... The pork tasted and looked like it had been in the fridge for a week. But we were starving and didn't want to wait 45 mins for the yardhouse. I would wait and save your money. Sad though, because this place could be AMAZING! such a great spot in the corner and it's huge inside...

Winnie Winnie: Really cool vibe inside and friendly staff. We went at 8 on a Saturday night and it wasn't crowded at all. I had a flight of beer and the veggie burger, I loved it. Husband had the Nashville chicken sandwich and said it was great (he's very picky about eating out). Brother had the fried chicken sandwich and gave it a thumbs up. We all agreed that the fries were awesome. Presentation was nice too. The negative reviews here seem to be for the more "fancy" dinner entrees so I might suggest going for the more casual options (sandwiches, burgers, etc.). After eating we went outside to have more drinks. The prices were reasonable, especially for the location and the service. I would go again.
Response: Thanks for the feedback Winnie! Glad to hear that we were able to please some picky palates! We do try to keep our prices reasonable, even during this time of inflated costs, so thanks for recognizing that!

A Z: I’m giving a low rating because there was a fly in my drink. Either the liquor is not properly stored or the ice is dirty. The server immediately corrected the mistake & her service was great that’s why I’m giving a couple of stars. I didn’t like how we were seated though. We we’re placed very closely in between 2 parties. We realized there were plenty of open tables in the restaurant & yes maybe we should of said something but at this point we ordered a couple of drinks and didn’t want to be a pain. It was super uncomfortable though & the whole time the party next to us didn’t talk and just listened into our conversation & starred. The bathrooms were atrocious. Lastly, before we were seated at the table we had a couple of drinks at the bar. The guy cleaning off the table behind us reached over the seat next to me with dirty glasses to hand to the bartender & whatever was on the glass dropped onto my bag. This guy should not be reaching over the bar top while people are trying to enjoy their space & drinks. Why couldn’t he go to the end of the bar or go around. It just seemed like an odd thing to do in the middle of the bar where people are trying to enjoy their time there.

Paul Phan: The food was delicious, but my service was awful. I didn’t get checked on once and didn’t have utensils or napkins. I was just handed the check at the end after I asked someone else to get our waiter. I won’t let one bad experience ruin the rating since the food was excellent.

Drew: I agree with other reviewers- BEST wings I’ve ever had in my entire life. We also got the greens and grains salad and the tandoori chicken and all 3 were absolutely fantastic. Beer selection is phenomenal. If I could rate this place higher I would. Could not recommend it more.

Chalsie Baker: We had a great time at City Tap House tonight. From the chill vibe, awesome food, and the best service from Isaac, we have nothing but great things to say about this place. If you are out and about in DC, it needs to be on your list!
Response: Thanks for the five star Chalsie! We are working hard to get back to the old days!

Pierre Gomez: This place has an excellent selection of beer and cocktails but generally bad food and service. On a recent visit I got the meatloaf sandwich -- the fries were cold, the meatloaf was dry and bland, and the portion was smaller than expected. The chicken and waffles was fine. We also waited a long time to order, to get our beers, and then to pay. The place wasn't all that full. The back of the restaurant is also very cold.
Response: Sorry to hear about this experience Pierre. Can you contact me at fherrmann@table95.com? Thanks!

O'Sullivan's Irish Pub: what do users think?


Emily Deanne: I really like this pub. It has a wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. The brunch has decent food and the drinks are tasty. My friend is British, and he said the fish and chips here are the best he has had in the area. The closest to what he is used to having at home. I love the decorations inside because it makes you feel like you are in Ireland, not in Virginia. Check it out if you are a fan of pub food!

Ben Gump: This place will always have my favorite Irish Breakfast. Parking can be tricky because of the location so I recommend you bike or metro in. Beer is good and the staff are friendly. It's a pub so don't think you'll find overpriced excessively fancy food here but I assure you, you'll never be disappointed here. If you like a full Irish Breakfast then you'll love it here!

Mitt Hugo: Went there on a Wednesday and didn't know it was trivia night. Good thing my party was there before me or else I want getting a table. Fortunately a table of 2 left when I arrived and the waitress scalped those chairs for myself and another person. Was an overall great experience and the wait staff made it so!

Nate B: We went there on St. Patrick's Day. It was busy. Food was good. We had the potato pancakes, salad with grilled chicken, and Shepherd's Pie. Service was good. Drinks were cold. I would definitely recommend this place.

Amol Soman: Great place to kick back and have a few beers. Reasonably priced. Located in an amazing area so you'll typically see a good crowd. Food is ok.

Ashley Anne Hamby: Best Fish and Chips in the DMV area. Also, try the crab and corn chowder!! It’s hearty and so delicious!! Great warm drink options. Service is always fantastic!

Martin Clock: Great service, really attentive. Good food (the potato leek soup was delicious!), and the ambience was perfect. I enjoyed having different rooms - bar, dining & music. Decor felt authentic. Price was moderate.

Neil Greene: On a busy Friday night, I was able to find a cozy corner in the whiskey bar. Bartenders were attentive, and enjoyed the evening.

David Hudson: Irish pub: great food, always great events, fun staff, and character. A crowd when you want it and spacious when you need it.

Marina: Visited while waiting for a table to be ready at a restaurant nearby. Ordered a tequila shot at the upstairs bar. Nothing really too special about the place. The shot was $14.
Response: We do not have an upstairs bar. I think you may have reviewed the wrong restaurant.
