Dinner before the Hockey game, place was packed but they had that under control. Bartender took care of us swimmingly and we got to the game in time for the first puck drop

My wife andI love this place. She had the Rueben and I had the Black bean burger. Each was delicious and served quickly. Reservation did not disappoint. Great staff on event night (hockey game).

A special visit to Washington DC deserved a special dinner-so glad we tried this Irish pub! The shepherds pie was delightfully authentic, as was my husband's corned beef & cabbage dinner. Ambience was amazing with low lights and design/furnishings you'd find in the old country, herself! Tim, our waiter, completed a perfect night with great service. We will definitely dine here again!

This is a pub, exclusively . There's a bouncer at the door. Why they're on open table taking reservations makes no sense. Very loud, lively pub atmosphere which is great if you're looking for pints. It's not somewhere to dine.

Stopped at the pub after a busy day touring sites in D.C. We had the hamburgers and fish and chips. Everything was good including service. Would return next time in D.C.

We made a reservation but there was no one to seat us or even speak to. The servers and bartenders were overwhelmed by the pre hockey game crowd and knew nothing about reservations- nor cared. We had walked well over a mile to get there and were very disappointed. We left and went elsewhere.

Uncomplicated menu and comfortable atmosphere. There is both a bar and dining area. Our server was attentive and the food came fast. We were in the mood for fish and chips and it did not disappoint.

It was super crowded, so very happy to have made a reservation. Food and drinks were great, service was a little slow, but to be expected when the place is that busy.

The place is fun, authentic, but a bit loud. The server was nice, but rushed. The food was good, but the menu limited. I do wish they would give points for the reservations though, why bother being on Open table.
