We were at the bar twice during our stay. Once evening before, for a beer with friends--beer good, but service quite slow. However, it was Christmas Eve, so allowances necessary.

Couldn't think of a better place to go to celebrate becoming a US citizen! Really close to the Federal Court House and the timing was perfect, they had a table for 4 and awesome food and service.
