Great food and craft beer selection. Service was outstanding. Thanks!
Service was good. Mimosa deal was 🔥. Chicken and waffles dish was a bit disappointing for $19 but mimosas deal balanced it out. Not much meat on the chicken and it was fried too hard. And waffle was just regular.
wide beer selection & food was nice with good atmosphere
The service was good, but perhaps a bit relaxed. The burger and meatloaf were excellent. My partner thought the Mac and cheese could have had more crab. Overall, an enjoyable meal.
The place was bustling. Despite that the service was quick and the food was excellent.
Food & drinks before the game. They messed up the order but quickly got it right.
3rd time here, always delicious!
I had wine and GF had the Cucumber smash that she loved.
I had the poke bowl and she had the spicy shrimp tacos.
Both dishes had amazing flavor!!!
We shared the key lime for dessert.
See ya next time!!
Went for brunch…good food…reasonable prices…friendly staff…convenient location.
We had a great brunch. The food was good. Our server was friendly and responsive. The ambiance was really good. Perfect choice for a relaxed brunch.
We were seated as soon as we entered the restaurant. Service was fast and the food was delicious . Also, very good beer selection
We were looking for a
Pre concert meal
Stopped in for dinner before an event at Capital One Arena. Great location, great food & service! Will definitely come back again!!
great time. incredible nachos
Went for a drag brunch and had a blast! The staff were awesome and helpful during the very busy service
The drag brunch here is absolutely phenomenal! The food and drinks are reasonably priced and delicious, and the performers are top notch.
Great time, great food, great service, and the drag entertainment was so fun
We went to the drag brunch and it was fantastic! The service was amazing and the food was really good.
The customer service was great. Food was tasty, appropriate serving size, and great overall value. I would go there again.
Booked reservations for the dinner. We opted to sit outside which was very enjoyable. There was a hockey game so most of the tables cleared out by 7p and it was very quiet until we left at 9:30.
Beer selection was great with varied styles and drink menu was full as well. Food came out hot and fairly quickly and there was a lot on each plate.
Server was pleasant but as the outside thinned out he managed more tables inside and didn’t pop over as often.
Very good place, enjoyed it and would absolutely dine here again.
First time returning after service and food issues some four years ago. No real improvement. Brunch included the following: not fully cooked frittata; “two eggs” entree…four bites and eggs all gone; biscuits freezer burn taste and hard post microwave. Servers try and assume okay for a beer at game time but continues to disappoint as a restaurant.
The food is so good be been twice this week
Good Bar Food
This is a convenient location when near CityCenter, The White House, Capital One Arena. Plenty of options for food and beverages and upbeat music. Can get crowded during happy hours (Renaissance Hotel is next door).
Wasn’t a huge fan of the food, but our server was very understanding of that and allowed us to order something new. She was nice and friendly, but service was slow despite the restaurant not being super busy. Wouldn’t go back, but it was worth the try.
Delicious black bean burger and a tasty Fall Pumking beer. Parking garage right around the corner. Cool vibe, will definitely be back.
Amazing drag brunch!!!! I took my mom and teenage brother with me, and we were all dancing and laughing and enjoying ourselves💕
This place was amazing. We sat outside and the atmosphere couldn’t have been better. Beautiful evening with incredible delicious food. We had the Shrimp and Grits and the Meatloaf. Both were amazing all the way down to the presentation of the meal.
A couple of misses by the server, who described himself at the end as covering outside and inside- seemingly overwhelmed. $95 lunch for a family of 2 adults and 3 kids- but would not return, nor recommend and here’s why:
Chopped tap cobb salad (with shrimp) was literally shredded iceberg, feta instead of described blue cheese, and overly salty greek style olives. Asked for ranch vs the recommended white balsamic vinaigrette- it never came despite the reminder.
Four kids meals ordered, each supposed to be accompanied with a kids drink, only got 2 of 4. Wish the kids did share, but we’ve taught them drinks shouldn’t be shared so .... server forgot those too, even when reminded.
Margarita pizza was best choice and was perfect. Good flavor, and quality of ingredients.
Sprite machine seemed to have run out of syrup, but our drinks were corrected as soon as we mentioned it.
App of Nashville cauliflower initially came out as cold- as if it was in the fridge. Weird. Was too saturated in hot sauce and oily bc of a thick batter. Would not recommend this dish.
Young server, apologetic but that doesn’t fix the food. We felt bad, he kept forgetting things even when reminded gently.
There was a good amount of patrons - don’t know why our experience was crappy.
While the food was good, the service unfortunately was not. We were not seen for 40 minutes after being seated, and we did not get our food for about 2 hours. Additionally, we never received our appetizer and were sent the wrong drinks multiple times. The waitresses were completely pleasant but the manager never came to our table until we repeatedly asked to speak to him. He also did not ever apologize.
Service and food were excellent! Our server made great recommendations and we really enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere.
Nice ambiance, great beer list, good spin on typical pub fare!
The food was great but our server was just amazing and patience with us all the time. She made our experience even better. We had a friend visiting from Peru and we were happy we selected this place.
Really disappointing meal. Mediocre food. Good beers.
My burger was good however, my appetizer wings weren’t flavored how I remember. That was disappointing.
Great food and fantastic atmosphere. We got a waitress in training that forgot about us for a while. I had to refill my water from the jugs sitting on a tray, other than this we are very happy and will return next time in DC.
We didn’t go because it didn’t seem to be open. When I went to get directions on my phone it said it was closed and I called and no one answered and their voice message was full.
Good vibe and layout inside. Food and service were both good. Only ‘complaint’ is that the outside space could use some attention to make it a little more inviting.
Service was ridiculously slow & unfriendly.
