Best sports bar in the DMV area! It’s classy and low key at the same time. The food is amazingly seasoned and tasty and the drinks are strong and good!

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.

Food was not bad however I don’t understand what’s the point I. Making a reservation and they want to seat you at the bar? Not a place to go if you are trying to have conversation way to laud and nosy!!

Tge hostess did not want to sit me until all my party arrived. They brought us a vase fur the flower without water.
Coffee was so cold and we were told it's because they poured it from the old cattle. We were waiting for more than 30 min to get food. Very loud, can't hear each other. The manager asked if we celebrate somethibg, we told it's a birthday. Hw asked for a bday girl name, but we didn't get anything. No desert, nothing. What was the point of asking. Very weird experience

Went to watch the cowboys vs saints game, the energy was great, service was great. Our server Arjie was extremely attentive and fulfilled all of our dining needs . I was a bit nervous due to other reviews and previous experiences but luckily me and my family decided to give it another go.

The service was very, very slow. The drinks were underpoured and tasted off. We asked for silverwear multiple times from our server and finally had to go ask a bartender for some. The food was average at best. We were charged for ice in a drink (seriously) in addition to a service fee above and beyond tax and a tip.

At the start of our meal, the background music level was so loud it was impossible to talk in a normal volume at our table. After the basketball game on the monitors, to much surprise, a DJ came and increased the music volume to rock concert level. We finally had to leave the restaurant because we could no longer have a conversation at our table without screaming. A very unpleasant dining experience.

The food was not great. The server was very nice but.. the chicken was way over cooked on my salad. We returned one of the salads and asked for a burger it took over 30 mins and we had to track someone down to bring it to us. I won’t go back.

Typical sports bar. Lots of TVs to watch pretty much any game you’re looking for, good sized bars and high ceilings. Staff was kind and attentive. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best and the selection of draft beers was small and lacking. Had high hopes for this place but most likely wouldn’t go out of my way to go back.

Finally a true Sports Bar that gets into its sports and still has good food.

Loved that they ran the light & fog machine when the Wizards won!

I enjoyed the Tuna Tatakas, the Friend Chicken Sandwich and Kung Pao Bowl were all great. The Fries were amazing. I enjoyed the Ceasar Salad (but you could skip the spinach leaves).

I will definitely be back.

Larry and I wanted to watch football, baseball and hockey at the same time . We had a reservation which I would recommend . They were very busy ; but u never felt it. Our server was delightful and I cannot say enough about Mo the manager . She came over and introduced herself . I asked the server about the carrot cake because I have an allergy to walnuts . It did so on her own the manager sent a huge bowl of ice cream , strawberries and Carmel sauce on the house . The chicken bliss , spinach dip , ahi tuna tacos were awesome . Thank you all for a great night . We will return soon .

I say try it out for yourself!

If you can, try to make a reservation before going to secure a table and be on the “safe-side” as they do get a lot of folks walking in.

While it is a sports bar, the food was actually great! I ordered the Maryland Crab cake sandwich which comes with fries and the quality was great! I mean fresh lump crab at a sports bar on a brioche bun, surprisingly soooo good! I also had the side Kale Caesar salad which was great. My bf got the shrimp po boy that also comes with fries which was tasty as well along with some wings.

As far as drinks, I had the lemonade crush cocktail which was meh, okay. Its a rather basic drink and tasted exactly like a lemonade with alcohol so no complaints here. The only “bad” thing we had was the regular lemonade. I’m not sure what was wrong since it’s a fountain drink but it was awful. Otherwise, we finished up with the Carrot cake which was great! Nice and moist, with lots of flavor!

I plan on coming back for sure!

Service was absolutely horrible. Took our drink order and never came back with our drinks. Tried to order food several times and the waitress kept saying she would come back. Then when we asked to just pay for our drinks, she insisted we just leave.

Overall, the place has a lot of potential. However, the bars were super slow and we would only get drinks like every 30 mins. Also, waiters were a bit overwhelmed so service was very slow.

Do not recommend! Food was mediocre at best. Drinks were water down and very weak. Not a lot of diversity in the games being shown. In a sports place like this, multiple games should be shown but it was the same games on the tv. The server did her best but for two appetizers it took 40 minutes to get. Would suggest finding a different place to go.

Both food and drinks menu options are limited, our waiter didn’t know anything about the beer selection and doesn’t even know what a stout is for beer. He was friendly but he was more interested in the football game than anything else. The food tasted good but $20 for 12 wings are way overpriced.

Thank you for the valued feedback. I am sorry you did not have the best experience when dining with us. Unfortunately the price of chicken has risen dramatically from where it was pre pandemic, and our menu reflects that incline in cost. We will be using your review as a teaching tool with our staff. We strive to have a diverse offering of food and beverage items but would love to hear your feedback in more detail. With kind regards, Andrew Izrael

They were not accommodating to my party of 5, tried to sit us in full sun on an 80 degree day, would not put two tables together and instead squished 5 us into a 4 top b/c " we are fully booked today" no other table was sat the entire hour. Husband's food came out incorrect, eggs were fried not over easy, he received one egg instead of 3 eggs, he received cold sausage instead of bacon, so they Brought one piece of uncooked fatty bacon on a plate, his toast was not toasted.
Other than that, I liked the patio and the avocado toast. It's probably better just to go there for drinks and watching a game..
