We came from out of town late and the place was packed. But, the bartender made sure we had the right game on to watch and even let is taste beers before ordering. The veggie burger was homemade and the Irish platter was savory.

McGinty's is a fun spot to grab a bite with a beer and watch the game. We've been here when it was packed and when it was fairly quiet. The consistency lies in the good burgers.

As I did not want to drive the congestion of Silver Spring I began walking around close to the Doubletree looking for a place that appealed. I wanted Indian food and so I googled and ended up walking a half mile to places that were...More

My friends and I ate here for dinner. The atmosphere was great for a group hanging out, and our server was friendly and did an awesome job.
