Great selection of beer. The menu had a variety of items, good selection. Music was a bit loud, but ok.

The service was very slow. They waited until the rest of my party's food was served to tell me that what I order was no longer available. Although, they compensated my meal and dessert; I had to take my food to go since the rest of my party had already finished their meal. The DC location is much better.

They have changed their happy menu. No longer do they have $5 appetizers as they once had. Let me share my latest experience of this happening.

I have been going there the past 10 years from time to time to take advantage of this menu. I loved the chicken wings! You would get 10 large chicken wings for $5. For me, that was a meal in itself. I would bring friends and family from out of town because I loved the location and the menu during happy hour.

This past weekend, I took my boyfriend there to get the wings. When I arrived I found that the happy hour menu and the menu itself had changed. Still my boyfriend wanted to try the wings. He ordered BBQ wings. The waiter warned us that they were smaller than what we had grown used to. I asked if it was still 10 wings, the waiter shared that it was not. That is was 6 wings. I asked the waiter how they could do that when the advertisement on the screen clearly showed 10 wings as it once was. The waiter apologized for the false advertising and said that point would be shared with management. When we got our food it was $6 for 6 smaller wings.

My point is that if you are looking for the same deal that once was at this location with the happy hour menu, you won’t get it sadly. Maybe there will be something on the new menu that you might like though!

The beer is really great. Service fantastic and management awesome. However, they recently changed the menu so the one online is not what you get at the store. Over half of the items are “new”, but not necessarily good. Would recommend for a happy hour or quick bite but disappointed for a dinner out for celebration.

Very disappointed they took Rids off the menu. Now I have to find some place else to fill my cravings

Came for a casual, business holiday lunch. Two people ordered chili, and he came out ice cold. One person ordered a Gyro, and it was filled with lettuce. I ordered the fish and chips, and it lacked flavor. The waiter was great. He mentioned they were rolling out new menus.I was disappointed with the food. We been here before and enjoyed the experience better .

The turkey burger I had was awful! Should have had the Rueben.

Appetizers were great! We had the appetizer platter. Husband had a great steak & cheese. He couldn't get over how good it was. I made the mistake of ordering a crabcake just had a taste for it but after thinking it over a crabcake should definitely be ordered from a seafood restaurant, a more upscale location or made at home. Besides the crabcake the overall experience was great. This was our first time there. We will be back.

The food was really good. The prices are reasonable. The portions are decent. I’m Beyonce is a little loud for talking.

Great looking, nice menu but food is more middle-of-the-road Food is but the beer is better. 2nd time there, thought we'd give a 2nd chance. Brought out-of-town guests. They felt the same. Would go back for the bar.

Typical price range for burgers, beer, and entrees, however the quality of the above was supbar at best. List of tap beer and bottles leaves more to be desired. Don't waste your time trying this place out, it is not worth your money. It's too bad because the venue is clean and has a lot of potential to offer the area. Hopefully they fire the chef, brewmaster, and manager and hire a team that gives a damn about quality.

Unhappy with the chili - served cold and did not like the taste. Server (Erin) was great, offered me other options but I decided not to order anything else because my husband was half finished with his meal. As I recall, I did not like what I ordered the last time I was at the restaurant either. Perhaps it's my fault but I am giving up on this restaurant and will find somewhere else to eat before the theater.

Early dinner before our party in DC. Great service, food was very good. Hummus , apple walnut salad, fish, crab cakes, wings, awesome kids menu! Clean bathrooms close garage parking. Can't complain we will be back! I got a birthday cupcake and candle for a well wish from the restaurant. Everyone left full and satisfied.
