Just went out with my 11 year old son to eat and parked next to Majestic at the farmers market. Bar was full so we walked in and out. We ate next door at Haven. My car was towed away from Farmers Market lot whcih was half full with minimal signage. The tow truck driver was in the lot towing another car when i confronted him about the situation and he asked for $160 cash to make it all go away. i paid him $160 cash and he brought my car back minutes later. There was a spotter sitting in the lot watching people. When i asked the manager at Majestic if he knew this was happening he said no. The tow truck driver informed me Majectic requests this to happen........ITS A SCAM AND I AM SURE MAJESTIC IS IN ON IT.

Found this place on a Sunday afternoon while in the area and had a fun experience: five good-sized HDTV's featuring multiple football games, pub food, and (pricey) craft beers on tap. This spot had a friendly, neighborhood sports bar feel to it that can get quite vocal at times so if your interests fall outside the Redskins, this might not be the place for you. And despite the beer prices, the food - all your standard burgers, fish and chips, fajitas, etc. - was quite good and offered a pretty decent value. Service was also very friendly and welcoming. Overall: a very nice find.

This used to Gaffney's, and before that a Middle Eastern place. We went to the Majestic about 9 on a Thursday evening and sat in the patio out back. Only two other tables were occupied, so it was really pleasant and quiet. We had the apple manchego salad (excellent), a duck/bacon burger and the crab cake sandwich. The two sandwiches came with a mountain of french fries. Personally, I don't it's possible for a chef to show his stuff with a sandwich, so these were quite acceptable but not memorable. They have a good list of both bottled and draft beers. We walked through the front restaurant, which looks mostly like a sports bar.

We'll return if the weather allows us to sit in the peaceful patio.

The patio borders a county parking lot, which requires the meters to be fed until 10 p.m.---yes, 10 p.m., even on a Thursday night when the lot is nearly empty. It's a dollar an hour so bring plenty of quarters. The restaurant is accessible in the rear from the parking lot.

We've been here two times in the restaurant's first 6 weeks. The servers are friendly and efficient, and the menu has a good number of options for how you might construct a meal from the salads, appetizers, small plates, and large plates. Some of the best items are the least healthy options -- pork belly, poutine (french fries with gravy and cheese), burgers. Not every menu item is a "winner." It may take a while before all the kinks are out. But we do plan to go back, because the place does have potential.
