Everything was really good but our server didn’t really understand the menu and couldn’t give accurate information on certain meals in regards to allergens, preference for meatless meals, etc.. it seems like she just eliminated most of the menu without giving many options . We found d out afterwards that there were other options we could have had
Excellent food. A strong selection of beers and create your own flight option.
Great service, convenient location and nice selection of beers.
Lunch was excellent! Food served hot and fresh!
The mussels were plump and delicious. The fries were super. My husband really enjoyed the meatloaf which doesn’t seem to be on many menus. He especially liked the sauce
Had a party of 8 with a reservation. We were seated quickly, had fantastic service, and the food came remarkably quickly for a larger party. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the beer.
I had 7 girl friends visit from out of town. Booked a reservation at City Tap House for a Sunday brunch. Everyone said their dishes were delicious! We also loved that they sat us at a round table so we were all able to see each other and chat which we really appreciated.
I have no complaints with the food. I have been several times. It is usually a good place to hit up before the arena. The bar area gets a little crowded and loud, but its the bar.
They did cancel my last reservation with them. They called me the day of, about 5 hours before hand, and said the restaurant was closed. It's unfortunate but at least they called.
I will likely go back
The waiter seemed rushed or maybe he really wasn't wanting to work that night I am not sure. The hostess was wonderful! I had a surprise dinner for my husband since it was his birthday and she was great!
Great wait staff, super friendly manager. The food was amazing. We shared three different plates and each one was impressive.
Great location, Isaiah was a wonderful, attentive server, food was delicious!!
We were not aware there was trivia and the staff did not offer for us to sit elsewhere and the announcer and music were very loud. The server could have been more attentive.
Fun and great with groups!
Solid local beer selection. I liked my burger. Would go back for beer and burger.
Met friends after a CAPS game. Fun had by all.
Pretty nice restaurant - original menu. Very good service and friendly waitress.
The whole lunch experience was wonderful. The place was well lit and had enough room, our waitress was excellent and had top notch recommendations to share, and it was a great value for lunch. Definitely worth going back to.
Riesige Auswahl an Bier vom Fass und in der Flasche. Leckerer Burger. Menü hat für jeden etwas.
An der Bar kann es eventuell etwas laut sein. Im hinteren Bereich ist es aber ruhiger.
We were not told in advance that it was trivia during brunch. It would have been nice if the hostess offered us a seat in a quieter area as the noise level impeded our conversation.
Great location lots of activity. Great beer selection. The hostess at the door was funny and helpful. Got us seated quickly and served fast.
Low key, great place to hang out. Large Beer selection and the Food was Good as well...
Middle of the road for this type of place. The menu was a little different, but same prices and quality. Noisy, but not overwhelming. Food was good but nothing I'd remember in a week. Decent beer selection. Friend's Cosmo was awful.
Food and Bloody Mary bar were awesome!!!
Had lunch with an out-of-town friend whom I rarely see. Placed order with server, who asked which one of a list of sides I would like with my dish. Made my selection and did not discover until I got the bill that the side I ordered was extra. Server definitely had not mentioned that when I ordered. Pointed this out to the server when I received the bill. Instead of apologizing, she acted as if this was perfectly normal and said she had never had anyone take issue with it before. Asked her to remove the charge. She said she had to see a manager and went to an adjacent room. After 10-15 minutes of inaction, I went to the same room and found a manager, who was unaware of the issue. Took another 5-10 minutes before everything was resolved. To manager's credit, she was apologetic and gave me a gift card. I'm unlikely to use it however, as I am upset that the server ruined an otherwise joyful reunion with a dear friend, and I have no confidence in a restaurant that would employ a server who would engage in such deceptive practices with no apparent shame.
What a great way to start a meal, everyone had to be carded to be served a drink, no exceptions. I am 63 years of age and the youngest is 28. After that awkward experience with our business partner, then they ran out of the wine we had ordered. The food and service overall was good, not great. I would be hard pressed to return. Uncomfortable dining experience.
The restaurant accommodated a large group with ease.
Great brunch options for everyone. From eggs to wood-fired pizza, our whole table was happy. GREAT service!
Great service...... and would recommend to friends to try out.
A bit on the pricey side for bar food but tends to be the area
While it took a bit to get its started, the server was prompt and friendly and also accommodated the fact that we had a Caps game to go to. We were there at 6pm with reservations and seated, out by 645. Would go again, plus easy parking right across the street and 10 min walk to capital one center.
While the food was good, it would have been better if it were not cooked in old grease. CGANGE THAT VAT FRYER! I’ll be back.
Nice place so stop for a casual dinner. Would return.
Good food, great service, great location.
We went with a few of our friends (5 total) after work and had great drinks (very large beer menu) and everyone enjoyed their meals. We will be going back!
Great Food. Great Atmosphere. It was a very nice evening so we were able to eat outside. Being able to make a reservation was a definite plus!
Fantastic service. Our server was friendly, attentive, and elevated our experience. Thank you! We will be back!!
Service was good when we first arrived but slowed down when it got busy to the point we waited about 10 minutes for our check. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. Overall a great experience and I would definitely return and do recommend it!
We had brunch on a Saturday, during a lunch break at the Convention. The location is perfect. The food and service were excellent. It is a little noisy as it is a sports bar, but the four of us were able to have a nice conversation at a booth. I'll definitely come back if there is another convention in town.
This is my go to place when I have an event in the area and want a quality meal. The food here is great. Big portions and comes out relatively fast. My the crab max & cheese is to die for. The chicken sandwich and burgers are also great. The service is incredibly rude and unprofessional. I won’t be returning
Good food, casual atmosphere so good place to go for a bit after spending time on the Mall at museums. The staff was simply outstanding—friendly, helpful, and fast.
The restaurant had happy hour specials on beer. But when we sat in the dining room and ordered food, our drinks were MORE$$! We asked the server and she said, yes, the bar has different prices on drinks than the dining room!
