Perfect lamb chops and James Beard award winning chef. Lovely, friendly people. The ravioli is homemade and the portions were sizable. Fun customers as well!

Stopped by the Queen Vic pub to watch the Liverpool game. Staff was friendly and the food was great. Somewhat crowded but that was for the game. A great pyb with a great menu.

Had been a long day and before I retired to my hotel room for the night I wanted a small bite to eat and a really good bourbon. But I really wanted a certain atmosphere. A local tavern type of place and oh my gosh this was the perfect place for all of the above. I can't wait to go... More

Whoever said that British food is bland and tasteless hasn't eaten here. Absolutely delicious. Excellent place for brunch (and a hangover.)

Looks like "just a pub" but the specials each time I've been there have been so delicious and very vegetarian/pescetarian friendly. Great wine selection, reasonable prices and excellent service. Tonight we shared the vegetarian gnocchi, heirloom salad with burrato and roasted brussels sprouts. They had some other delicious choices on the specials board too, remember seeing roasted oysters, swordfish, ravioli... More

This is one of my son's preferred eateries in DC. I must agree with him. Cod was not my fish to eat, but these guys make it just perfect in their fish'n chips. It is my first choice. I had once pasta, very good but a little spicy for my taste, since I do not like spicy food and it... More

The food was good but the atmosphere is even better. It feels like a traditional pub from Boston. Great selection of beers and drinks. I would return here anytime and mingle with the locals.

Just finished with a DC United match at RFK and needed a place to go for some late night chow. The Queen Vic is a great place to stop in for a burger and a beer

Another British Pub - in the best way. Even if you only visit once every couple months, Noel and Joe give you friendly greetings and tell you “of course you’ll have a Guinness!” (Yes, they pour it right). There's always something excellent on the menu chalk board...the crispy chicken BLT...the veggie gnocchi...You also expect it to be to British standards... More
