We were down from NJ last weekend sightseeing in DC. It was football rivalry weekend Saturday with many great games around 3:30pm. Thankfully we found Penn Quarter. This sports bar has over 30 big screen TVs as well as in the bathrooms. It has fantastic bar food. The wait staff was great. They were very attentive while not disturbing our... More

Always interested in a convenient location either pre or post game. Bar food is better than average and for winter hockey games (don't think DC has a professional basketball team ;)), warm covered outdoor seating.

We were in Washington to watch the Packers play the Redskins and visited the Penn Quarter Sports Tavern to watch the English premier games on TV on Saturday and Sunday. They open at 11 and changed a TV over for us near where we were sitting and kept us full up with drinks and great food. Really helpful and friendly... More

Lots of TV's, small place but nice. Has good alcohol prices and many TV's to watch your favorite sports team. Finger food is good. We came late for a football game and had drinks and appetizers.

I love the environment here. The bartender is great and the drinks are reasonably priced. The food is absolutely horrible! I would recommend this place again for a fun time but make sure you eat before you go.

We visited this little pub early afternoon on a Friday while visiting DC and found the food delicious and the service outstanding. We enjoyed the steak burger, the black and blue burger, the basic cheeseburger and a Reuben sandwich with fries and/or chips. The food was hot, delicious and servings were generous. Our drinks were filled immediately and the food... More

Stopped for lunch after walking to various sites. Beer was cold. Steakhouse burger was tasty. Mrs has the blackened salmon salad. Lots of TVs for watching games. A great place for a beer and sandwich.

This place seems attractive due to the large number of TV screens, considering the small space at street level. When inside, you have very little choice of draft beers (5 including a light one), all of average industrial level. Food menu is centered on burgers. Tried also the steak. Burgers and steak were filled with extra toppings to cover the... More
