Well when I sat down and the bartender told me i couldn't get a tiny taste of their brand of Gin she straightened me right out. It wasn't until dozens of regulars came in and were treated exactly the same that I realized I was welcome there. All joking aside Cindy made my co-worker and I very much at home... More

The menu is great. The staff are really friendly. It is located in the cool part of Virginia near the airport. Plenty of TVs to watch sports and news at the same time. And the food selection is fantastic!

Had I finished this review last night, this place would have received 5 stars and a rave review. I ordered the Steamed Shrimp with a side of fries and my daughter ordered a burger and fries. The food was more than excellent, just perfect. The service was spot on, the waiter had our drinks refilled and did an amazing job.... More

Staying one night in Crystal City, wandered south to 23rd and the row of restaurants. Easy walk from most hotels. Chicken kebab and black&bleu burger were both good. Food came out quickly, and waitress had good beer recommendations.

Good sports bar right up from the Hilton in Crystal City. Wish I had known of it before. Nice sized beer list. Not overwhelming and a good variety. I had the Batters Up pizza. Very thin crust, Lloyd of cheese, very good--would have been 5 stars but the crust was a little burnt on the edged. Nice waitress, but she... More

I had the ultimate smokehouse burger and it was very good. All TVS were ready for the basketball tournament and the wait staff was efficient in taking care of us. Will definitely come back next time I'm in the area.
