Flanagan's is always great. The fries with curry sauce are as delicious as I remembered!

Was there on March 16th for dinner so the craziness of the 17th was just starting. Food was great and server was very attentive and helpful even though it was crowded. Overall a great place and will be back again!

Flanagan's does not use OPEN Table for reservations. When we arrived the bartender rudely informed me I should have called a week in advance for a table. Why are you listed if you don't use it & learn to be nice to people.

If you want to have a good time, listen to the consistently best live local bands in Bethesda and dance the night away, you'll do no better than Flanagan's Harp & Fiddle.

The food was mediocre, the service was horrible, and the entire place was so hot that it was almost entirely unbearable! We waited for over 35 minutes for food we ordered. The waitress never offered water refills or checked on us at all. I was hoping for more.

I enjoyed seeing Sanford and Lena Markley perform, but in the future will grab a bit to eat elsewhere. I don't mind waiting a long time when a kitchen is slammed. My complaint is not about the wait. It has to do with my Reuben. Where's the beef?? It "featured" two little slices of what I think was corned beef. Everything else was fine and luckily I'm packing enough extra weight that the lack of substance between the bread won't affect my survival. Plenty of other good food options a short walk from this great music venue.

I really enjoyed the experience at Flanagan's Harp and Fiddle. We had reserved for 3 as we wanted to listen to Lena and Sandford Markley. We had a surprise extra and the restaurant made room for us. There was one main waitress who did an outstanding job and made us feel welcome. The restaurant is clean, the food is good, and the people were friendly.

Fun bar/ restaurant that usually has great music. Sunday nights Mary Ann Redmond and a great group of musicians usually play. It’s a show that should cost a great deal more but cover is only 5 dollars and they start early(7-7:30). So, you can eat hear some great music and be home for a good nights sleep before the start of the week!

It was packed for a Sunday night so the seemingly only server was quite busy. The food we had was delicious!!! But, a couple of minor items listed on the menu weren’t as advertised on the plate...thousand island dipping sauce seemed more like honey mustard and the brisket sandwich was on Texas toast instead of cornbread. Overall, yummy and I’d try it again!

Looking for Breakfast options on Open Table and I booked breakfast reservations at 10:15 am. We get there and it was closed and they told us it didn't open until 11am. Not a big a big deal, however, why would the establishment say they were open when it wasn't?

A really nice venue in a great restaurant/club scene area of Bethesda. Good Irish pub ambience with a solid Irish pub menu. Sunday night music was an outstanding blues/indie-style foursome - each a great musician in their own right.

Early Friday dinner. Large group of 20ish male/females near by. Loud and using not for public language excessively and aggressively. Brought atmosphere down. Ate and left quickly.

Four of us went to dance and listen to a new band LeftoversDc. The music was fanstastic. for such young men their Genre was all over the place. It suited young and us oldies as well. Our server Fatima was the best. She suggested the beef turnovers as an appetizer and even the pickiest eater of our group loved them. The Fish Tacos I had were made to perfection. My husband had the Chicken over orzo/spinach salad that was very tasty. We have been here in the past and will return again, especially if the "LeftoversDC" are playing. Thank you Harp & Fiddle for an enjoyable evening.

Had a great lunch on a Sunday. The place was quiet and we watched soccer on the tele. I had a Guinness and my wife had a Strongbow - the food, a burger and a reuben, were good.
