This Resturant is in the Gaylord Washington DC and therefore is basically exclusive to people staying at the Gaylord hotel. My wife and I were attending a Conference at the Gaylord and had the pleasure of eating here over a half dozen times. The food is great and the staff is very helpful. I recommend the Bases Loaded Burger and... More

While staying at the Gaylord for a conference, we ate at National Pastime a few times! It was so good, we kept going back! They have a great bar area, good inside seating and great patio seating that looks out into the atrium of the Gaylord. The food was wonderful! Hubby loved their chicken caesar salad. He said it was... More

YOU MUST TRY THE CRAB DIP!!!! MUST!!! It was so good, we went back another night and each ordered just the crab dip for dinner! I had a burger with a side salad our first trip, and it was good. I loved sitting outside of the restaurant in the atrium of the Gaylord. Very relaxing!

My experience was not a good one... I sat at the bar for quite a while before "one of three" bartenders/waiters actually approached me... The food that I ordered (fish and chips) arrived at a descent time, but the fish was cold and the fries seemed old, (I had to send it back)

Had dinner at this restaurant while attending a trade show at the Gaylord Hotel. Although the restaurant was busy it was not a crazy night. Service was extremely slow for both food and drinks. One of our party had to ask 3 or 4 times to get his ice tea filled. Dinner took a long time and when it arrived... More

VERY COOL TV SETUP! This is an incredible place to watch games. The food is decent, nothing special, nothing bad. Prices aren't crazy and the waitstaff has always been good in my experience.

Go here for the beer and to watch sports. The food is typical and the menu is very limited. One item was marvelous... Potato corn chowder.

Had several meals and drinks here over several day meeting. Most were pretty good but basic bar food. Chicken fingers were OK as was the hamburger. Atmosphere and TV viewing is excellent.

I know, I probably shouldn't have ordered a salad at a sports bar, but I did. What a disappointment. The vibe and enormous screens were very fun and the service was good. But I don't wish to return.

This is a great Sports Bar to grab a bite and watch the game. I tried both the National Pastime Burger and the Lamb burger and both were really good. I like their sweet potato fries and the espresso brownie was awesome. The brownie was moist and the ice cream was a perfect accompaniment.

Thank Lvinstyle
