Draft beer was watery. Service fine. Outdoor tables were fun. Starts to get busy after 8 or 9 pm. Quiet enough to talk business over beers.

We went for an evening, having visited for lunch a week before. This is an amazing place. Very atmospheric with a lot of history around you and on display. Brendan the owner is one of the nicest people you will meet in DC. We would...More

Great fish & chips, and a properly-pulled Guinness (at least for US standards). I've never had anything here that I didn't like. The servers are always great; I always have a great time when I come here to grab a beer after work.

This is not an Irish pub by any standard. The sheppard pie was nothing I would call Irish. Globally ridiculous food like a cheese burger or pulled pork sandwich. We had way better food in any pub in Ireland .

This place is the same as it was 20 years ago. Solid service, good beer and pub food. Not fancy, but reliably good. The portabella mushroom sandwich was not bad. A short walk from union station

Very crowded when we arrived but wait staff was fast and efficient. They have a great selection of ice cold beer. The food was good. We are never disappointed here.

Had their Cowboy burger with fries and a local IPA (draft). Beer was good, burger wasn't. The service was fast and the waitress was friendly. The place is a dive, but I kind of like it.

Thus was a late lunch after an excellent hop on hop off bus tour Big Bus. Service is quick and friendly. The food is basic but very nicely cooked. Good selection of beers. Basically a great pub

Had an hour to kill before my train at Union Station and Irish times is a 3 minute walk. It is an older bar, somewhat of a dive, but a great selection of Irish beer and whiskey.
