I visited this place for the first time in years. The decor and atmosphere were great, but the overall experience was a letdown. Three of us ordered fish and chips. We all agreed that the fish was mushy. The batter was fine, but the fish itself didn't seem right. It was disappointing for an Irish place to have average fish.... More

This was a usual stop for my family in DC. The menu was redone since the last time we were here in August '16. They have a limited number of salads and the quality of the food was fair and that is a stretch. The place was not crowded and the wait staff spent more time on their iPhones than... More

Wings, shepards pie and burgers were all delicious. Friendly staff, excellent atmosphere. Prices are reasonable for a DC establishment.

Visiting DC, my wife, daughter and I had dinner there. The shepard's pie was really good. It's hard to mess up fish and chips, and my wife had beat salad. Overall, we had a great experience.

Most of the restaurants near the capitol are too expensive or too formal. This pub is a great place for a good meal that is reasonably priced in a lively casual atmosphere. I always look forward to eating here to unwind from a visit to DC

Went with friends for lunch in the area of Union Station. Service was fine, although a bit lackadaisical. Food was average. If in the area again and nothing better presents itself, I would return unenthusiastically.

Good food, decent prices and friendly staff. We ordered the wings and burger. Both were good. For dessert, the pumpkin pecan tart is delicious!

We had dinner at the Dubliner Pub on Tues. 25 Oct. at about 6 pm. We were dining before seeing a play and were a bit late due to traffic. We informed our waiter, Patrick, of our time constraint and placed our orders for the Shepherd’s Pie and Irish Beef Stew. The platters appeared in about five minutes! Both offerings... More
