We were waiting to do the Monuments by Moonlight tour so decided to stop in here first. Great choice. Friendly atmosphere, good food and a great bartender named Phil. We had the chicken tenders with our drinks and they were large, meaty and done well. A place we will come back to our next trip to D.C.

Stopped with pups to pick up dinner. Outside server was receptive to having dogs on the patio, but we decided to eat in hotel room instead. Food was excellent, especially the tater tots! Pricing good too. Highly recommend.

We had dinner there on Sunday night, specials because of the football games. We both had the fish & chips, very good. A little loud because of the football game, but it didn't bother us.

Nothing healthy to eat here. But there aren't many choices in the area, so we tried it. I would not return.

Stopped in in first night in DC. My husband loves Irish food so we decided to give it a go. Walking up on the place, you realize this is where many locals go to drink. The path to the door is completely blocked with people standing there drinking and vaping. We finally made it inside and after waiting days for... More

Great pub and great staff!! The walls are littered with patches and memorabilia from first ponderers who visit the pub. Can be a bit crazy during police week and we thank the locals for sharing this great place when we visit. I make a pilgrimage here every time I visit DC.

Went to Irish times on our last night in Washington DC. The food was good and the vibe was good. The wait staff recommended some good things as well. Worth the trip.

Stopped here for lunch after the duck tour and before visiting the police memorial. The service was great and the food was delicious. My husband had a burger and I had the hot pastrami sandwich. It was delicious. My daughter had the chicken finger appetizer and said they were the best chicken fingers she has ever had. The prices were... More
