The place is not much from outside, but once you're in it is very inviting. It is great for a young group or some business people that appreciate straight forward great and simple atmosphere, food and drinks. Sportsmen will love the large screens spread around. Service is great and food is very tasty. Not pricey at all!

Visited on New Year's Eve to grab some food and watch some sport. No frills but delivered what they advertised good food and great atmosphere. Really surprised to find such avid American premier league advocates, when we were visiting to see the Washington Redskins

Visited here for a quick afternoon drink after a busy day sightseeing. A friendly welcome, good beer, sports screens and pool tables made us stay for a couple of hours.

When we first walked in, we thought it was very small. If you go up the stairs to the back there's a much bigger room. Unfortunately the bathrooms are up a very tall stairway. They had some of the best chicken wings I have ever tasted. The burger and a Philly cheesesteak were also very, very good. If you like... More

Cool looking bar. Perhaps a little dungy- but in a fun kinda way. Servers were friendly and attentive. Typical bar food. Bar selection was limited.

Gross bar. Look at these rats. They are disgusting. Probably a health code violation. They should be shut down!!!!!!!!
