We came on a Sunday before the "entertainment" but will be back for the food! The appetizer that came with my daily special dinner was actually enough for small appetites. He ordered prime rib and got huge portion as well, all food well seasoned and hearty. Steak was fire grilled, even better surprise.

Adult oriented establishment pretty well sums it up. Decent lunches and drinks with a very nice view. Near metro and several Crystal City hotels.

This is a cool little pasty bar near several hotels in Crystal City. I didn't try the food but the tea I had wasn't very enjoyable for me solely because I'm not a fan of Arnold Palmer style I prefer mine to be just sweet. The dancers were fun and friendly. The music could've been a little better for them... More

There's no cover charge to get in and they have an amazing beer specials on Sunday ($3 until 6:30pm). The food is plentiful, quite tasty, and also surprisingly cheap. The main attraction, however, is a smoking allowed cigar bar that is separated from the whole establishment by a glass wall. A rarity these days. True, girls only get to dance... More

So good we went back twice. Varied menu that accommodated the vegetarians, food allergies and good beer selection!

The girls can't get within 5 feet. They can't go past pasties and G-strings. They pay for their own songs on week nights. They do not even try to smile until it's time to walk around and collect bills. Still go because it's an institution and some of them can really dance, but set your expectations low.

The food is phenomenal for this type of establishment. The prime rib is amazing and the atmosphere perfect for a bunch of guys attending Rolling Thunder!

Wife and I went in because of the food prices on the board outside. Once in, we decided to stay and try it. It's a non-nude strip club (they wear pasties). In looking at the reviews below, other visitors must have been distracted by the dancers because the food was poor. "You get what you pay for" applies. Also, the... More

I travel throughout the United States via motorcycle and have been to 49 by bike and flew to Hawaii. Have eaten in countless places primarily independent. One of my BEST meals ever was at the CCR.
