If you're easily offended or a heckler....stay home! It's a comedy club...they make fun of serious issues, people, events, and situations. The comedians were mostly entertaining. The chicken wings were great and drinks ok. In all a good experience.

Pretty decent bar. Enjoyed the booth-style seating suitable for a handful of friends for an intimate conversation. Prompt service. A decent selection of beers on tap.

...Because you get kicked out as soon as you walk through the door. The place was suggested as a good restaurant with reasonable prices and a great beer selection, but as soon as we walked in a bouncer looking guy rudely yelled no kids allowed. If kids aren't allowed, at least out it on your website or the door.

Near the metro station in Dupont Circle, the Big Hunt surprised with really good food. They have an excellent Black Bean Chili and the burgers were juicy. They have many types of craft beer. The beer isn't cheap but the food was very good. It was quiet when we were there which was perfect after a long day of site-seeing.

The Big Hunt does not appear impressive from the outside or the inside but it has some great food and a wonderful selection of craft beers. I had a burger that was delicious. Even though it was large and thick they managed to grill it crispy on the outside with a nice sear and yet have it juicy and slightly... More

For my sister in laws birthday we traveled down to the DC area. After walking and coming across bars with long lines and loud music we stumbled on this little gem. The drinks were a little pricey however it was a nice relaxing atmosphere. A much welcomed oasis.

Ok it looks a bit down at heel inside and out but this is a really nice place, especially early in the week when it's not too noisy. Great choice of beer and good service. Sports on TV's at the back of the bar. You'll need ID to get in at all times.

We host an annual party in the back room and it is always a huge success. Everyone loves The Big Hunt for the food, service and fun atmosphere. Places like this are priceless!! My favorite food here are the nachos! I'm a bar food fan and their nachos are as good as it gets. In a town full of stuffy... More

Walked past many bars with long lines and boring patrons. Then found this place without long lines and rustic feel. Perfect bar in this area!
