Good service. Food was ok. Fish and chips a bit soggy. Calamari was delicious
Great Irish classics.
This was a great place for traditional Irish food. Would go back when in DC
Great food. Huge portions. Great service.
Staff were extremely accommodating, food was excellent, outdoor seating noise level was tolerable considering the location. We were treated very well.
James Hoban's never disappoints. Consistently good food and a nice atmosphere. Service can be a bit spotty, especially when sitting outside. Overall a great place!
Good service. Food nowhere near what was shown in pictures. Had Irish stew, very thin gravy almost like soup, about 1/3 the amount of meat and 1/4th the amt of vegetables and no potato on top like picture. Rather disappointing. More like Irish stew soup. Music not Irish but modern and rap
Nice neighborhood pub. Good casual pub food. Service as expected with no complaints.
The service, ambience and food was great. Please turn down the tv since it was annoying loud. I don't go out to eat to hear the sports announcers at ear defying volumes.
Shut front doors so smoke doesn't come into main restaurant. Good was excellent and service was great.
Good. Table service okay, bar service better....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................O
The food was good but a few things were a miss. One how do you serve cheeseburgers and not have pickles? Upon our arrival we were told the kitchen was backed up the restaurant was half empty. Also our waitress was not very friendly
A really busy day to try James Hoban's .. and a big mistake. Arrived for our reservation at 1:00. Didn't get waited on until 1:30, got food at 2:30. A long wait! Very disappointed that they had run out of corned beef and cabbage too. The shepherd's pie was ok. Probaby won't go back here.
Staff was very helpful, set expectations, willing to move us at a moments notice (we were outside- and it looked like rain)- all on St Patrick's Day.
The grub was good too-!!
standard fare- if you're Irish.
Fabulous spot to meet family from out of town. Server was outstanding. Many food choices without being overwhelming. Everyone enjoyed their food. Will eat there again and will recommend to friends going to D.C.
James Hoban's is always a fun spot for a casual bite - great service and fun atmosphere. It can get a little loud in the bar area, but there's seating in the back that mitigates that issue. The patio area is one of the best in DC - a great venue to while a way a few hours on a spring evening.
We came to James Hoban's for Saturday brunch when we saw that the Mad Hatter had no reservations. What a nice suprise! There was hardly anyone there and we really enjoyed the $2 mimosas, music, service, and food. Although the brunch menu is short, everyone liked their food. (Party of 4)
The look of the bar is good, the service was excellent, however, the food we had was terrible. My husband had the chicken pot pie, which had little flavor. I had the shepherds pie, it was terrible! This place is good for the bar scene, but I wouldn't recommend the food.
Disappointing experience on St. Patrick's Day. I could have predicted it I suppose, but was hoping for better since Hoban's portrays itself as slightly classier than your average "Irish" bar. Too much I suppose. Terrible! I never even got to sit down.
Our server was horrible and told us an Irish restaurant had no drink menu. Also would not recognize our friend's birthday when we'd asked the restaurant to when we made the reservation. Disappointed to say the least.
