    The food was pretty good and the drinks were as well. The service was lacking. It took 25 minutes for our waitress to come to our table to introduce themselves and bring water. Another 20 minutes to bring the drinks we ordered. The place wasn’t that crowded for the service to be so slow. Probably wouldn’t return unless we had over 2 hours to spend at dinner.

    We thought we’d try this spot since we often pass it. Nothing about it makes me want to return. The server was unfriendly and didn’t even bother to tell us her name. It was difficult to get her attention though we realized that asking her for things was probably not in our best interest. She seemed to have warmed up as we were preparing to leave. Given that it wasn’t busy, I decided to still give her a decent tip, though she didn’t deserve it at all. The food was ok. We ordered the avocado dip, turkey salad and short rib tacos. The drinks were just ok. It was extremely hot today and we asked for extra ice for our water since what we had melted. The server only brought enough for one person and quickly left before we could ask for more. Do note that when we asked for the check, this was the time that she became somewhat friendly.

    The food was bland and tasteless. The best thing was the nachos. The artichoke dip was stiff and flavorless. The Nashville hot chicken sandwich was tough and flavorless with cold fries. This place is definitely just for drinks and to watch games not to enjoy food.

    Large portions - a few games to play. Many large screens with various sports action . Some menu items not available.

    Sports & Social - North BethesdaResponded on June 20, 2022Mrhistory- Thank you so much for the review. I am glad you enjoyed our portion sizes and the game atmosphere we work hard to provide. I am truly sorry that we were out of some items, unfortunately we are still dealing with issues getting inventory from our distributors and it causes us to on occasion remove some items from our menu temporarily. We looking forward to having you back in soon. With kind regards, Andrew Izrael - General Manager

    Incredible large screen. But not a great place to watch sports because you can barely hear each other over the extremely loud music. At 8-9 pm during a game 7 playoff game. They laughably turned off the music for 1 final minute of the game 7. One minute. Food was decent. Beer list could be better but not bad.

    We sat for 30 mins with no server coming to the table until I flagged one down. Once we started ordering, server said drinks and food we wanted were not available, the kitchen and bar were "out". Took forever for food and drink to come to the table, food was alright but not hot. Got served nachos and had no plates to eat off of, then were given 3 plates for a party of 4. The air wasn't on and temperature/humidity was over 85 degrees so we were sweating. Not a good experience.

    Seems like a good sports bar. Maybe not quite a brunch place. Two of our entrees were missing about half of their ingredients (avocado, feta, green onion, hollandaise sauce, and tomatoes), and the 3rd entree was almost correct, but missing the hot sauce (key for a spicy chicken sandwich). Staff was very nice, the kitchen fixed our meals. I will give it another try, but probably get something like chicken wings.

    Our server was really nice and attentive. The host that sat me down was really kind. However, the ambiance was terrible. There were a few games playing and somehow whoever is in charge of playing the music, does a really poor job because the noise level was unnecessarily loud and off beat. The music would go up so loud and come back down numerous times. The food was SO bland and the drinks were pretty watered down. My chicken was so unseasoned. I ate less than half and did not take home my leftovers. I wouldn’t go back here again. Honestly. I could overlook the noise and how disorganized their music was but I can’t look past the unseasoned food. The drink was pretty. But that’s about all it had going for it.

    Good food and friendly staff. My only complaint is the music. 1p on a Sunday and you are blaring "club" music? I asked to have the F1 race commentary turned on and y'all said no because of the music. Sports>DJ!

    Went to watch March Madness and have lunch with friends. Overall good experience for watching sports and having drinks and apps. Waitress, Bethany, and bartender, Kevin, were outstanding given they were the only two on at the time. Apps were surprisingly good for bar food. DJ was accommodating and turned on game volume. Only drawback was beer selection was not great.

    We were there to watch Coach K’s final home game. Great space, good was solid. Nothing special, but def enjoyable given the atmosphere. TVs are everywhere, which is a plus and you can hear the sound for the main game…BIG PLUS! Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and will be back! Kids menu is lacking; no hard cider…those are my only complaints.

    My boyfriend and I went to have lunch after a movie. We were unaware of the 11-3 brunch and requested a normal menu. Our waitress was super accommodating and ensured we could see that menu before 3 and have our selections picked before 3 when we could order them. It was all in all a great experience. We will return.

    I had to send back my drinks on several occasions. The bartenders were horrible. I ordered a margarita and tasted nothing but lemon juice. The waitress had to keep replacing my drinks because it was terrible. Not only was the service slow, because they ran out of glasses but I was irritated that they kept messing up my drinks.

    First, the food was pretty good. Our server was a nice guy and helpful. But the restaurant was frigid. I mean, we put on our stocking caps for awhile we were so cold. I am not sure why, but on an absolutely frigid night, someone kept opening a door or two to the outside patio. No one was sitting out there. That made no sense. You could also tell the restaurant was understaffed. Our food took a little too long to get out there. Again, I do not put all that on the server. I suspect they were short on staff in the kitchen and on the floor. The place is cool in a lot of ways. The layout is very modern and clean. The big-screen televisions are very nice. If you want to watch a game, I can't imagine a much better spot. The food was pretty good. But it needs to pick up its game a little bit, especially in a competitive D.C. restaurant market. I recommend it but it is not a strong recommendation. We will go back but likely will wait until the weather is warmer. There was no excuse for it to be that cold.

    We made a reservation yet were seated all the way in the back of the restaurant near the windows. It was very hard to see the games. The food was okay. The drinks were better. We decided to leave and went to Owen’s Ordinary where we could sit at a high top and see the games.

    I know all our restaurants are struggling with service levels but the team here needs significant training. We were sat (my family of 4) by a hostess and waited 15 minutes u til I had to get up and go to the bar to ask the bartender for service. We ordered appetizers and entrees, which came out al at the same time, with cold fries. It was SO loud it felt like a night club at 7pm. The bathrooms were in need of serious attention.

    Let’s start by we are in a pandemic still and servers and bartenders weren’t wearing their masks properly (nose and mouths weren’t covered) only noticed one person who was picking up plates was wearing his mask as you should — drinks were not worth the money at all. Margaritas didn’t taste like margaritas. Jager bombs weren’t made properly. I was very disappointed due to it being open only for short time and having a bad first impression. I don’t believe I’ll be coming back again.

    The chicken sandwich with avocado was very tasty and plentiful. Fries were good too. Television site lines we excellent as was the picture quality. Kind of surprised that it wasn’t more crowded for 7:30 on a Sunday with big games on. Maybe that’s why my daughter and I got so much attention from Bethany. She provided excellent service and was friendly.
