Came here around midnight on a Satuday to watch basketball and snack on some bar food. Ambience-wise, it fit the bill - tons of TV's and a great food and drink selection. The only place this bar fell short was the service. We arrived and grabbed seats, then our waitress approached us with menus and water, so overall it was a good start. Then 5 minutes later, after we barely had any time to glance over the menu, she re-visits our table and asks us if we are ready. Her demeanor and the way she asked made me feel rushed, as if she was trying to get our orders out of the way. I asked her to come back in 5 more minutes to look over the menu and after waiting over 15 minutes without a waitress, we left. Wanted to give this place a chance but wished there was a Buffalo Wild Wings in the area.

Good pub grub, a decent selection of beers on tap when combined with a relaxed atmosphere and a genial bar staff = win.

If you need a place to gather with a small group of friends this is the place. Karaoke night is a big hit. A good bar with good bar food.

Great dive to stop and get a few cheap beers, watch a game, and catch up with friends without having to get dressed up. We got a few appetizers which weren't impressive, I wouldn't eat there again.

Went with a groups of buddies before a Nats game. The free shuttle was cool to the game.

Laid back atmosphere, beers were $5-6 and had a special for $6 Jack n Cokes. The restroom had a broken toilet so the place kind of stunk and they have a wall by the door that is just unfinished drywall which is kind of sketch but otherwise it was a decent place to grab a few.

Right across the street from the Marine Barracks.
