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

Went for lunch. Had been there years ago. Was expecting a middle of the road experience, that's exactly what we got. The food was simple and passable. The service seemed a bit too eager to "move" the table, although the place was half empty and no one was waiting. We sat near a large group and so it was difficult... More

Food is okay here, have only eaten here for lunch a few times. Service was good the few times I went. Price is as reasonable as can be expected in the DC area.

Food was okay. Beer selection was meh. Environment is boisterous and def. feels like a place locals come after their beer league softball games to yell at each other. If you're nearby then go for it, otherwise I'd look for something else.

Stopped here after a baseball game, looking for beer and some pub food. Unlike others, we had a terrific experience with our waitress, she was very helpful and the service was terrific. Food was good, we ordered the sampler appetizer platter and scarfed it down. Burgers, salads, and reubens were also tasty. My Guinness was poured perfectly and tasted great.... More

We stopped here after work for drinks and conversation! It was a festive atmosphere and there was a good beer selection. Service was good and the prices were reasonable. They also have an outdoor patio area.

As title suggests - food was really good, staff certainly weren't working for tips! This was round the corner from our hotel so convenient. Sat outside as inside was very dark and seating didn't look that comfortable plus it was a pleasant evening to eat al fresco. I had the liver and onions (my fave) hubby had a burger. Both... More

Went here for early evening drinks. Walked in to a fairly quiet bar with a fairly none descript atmosphere. Got ignored by all the bar staff so turned around and walked out again. Went next door to the Dubliner which was a blessing in disguise.
