Try the fish tacos, which they have on the menu as "perfect to share." You can share, but I liked eating them all. Otherwise, the service was OK, not too peppy, but good. I'd go back to give it another go since the menu has enough attractive options.

Nice selection of bar food - served promptly and tasty. I had the shaved primed rub sandwich that was their version of a cheese steak. Their old fashion was excellent.

We were staying at the hotel and this was an easy dinner option for us. Nice little sports bar and the food was very good. Nothing special but a solid option for sure.

Excellent setting with an entrance inside the Renaissance Hotel and an outside entrance. The menu selection was great and the variety of wings, made them hard to resist. The entrance from within the hotel is directly right of the hotel bar and can be easily missed.

Great atmosphere and with a full bar. Decided to have lunch. Ordered the Crab cake burger. It was a giant crab cake. For $21.00 is was worth it. Delicious:) please see photos.

It's hard to distinguish between all of the sports bars in DC, but if you're around the Renaissance on 9th Street then you might want to give this one a try. It has a limited menu, but what they have they do well. The "drummies" their Buffalo Wings are especially good. A decent mix of craft, draft and bottle beers... More

Great place to grab a bite to eat. Menu options vary from light to hearty. Food served quickly. Recommend the Walnut Berry Salad. Yummy.
