We used to LOVE this place. Cool, funky atmosphere and excellent food was the norm, but not this time. The food was just BAD. 4 people in our party and not one of us liked our food - and we aren't picky eaters. The quality...More

My girlfriend and I went here because it seemed like a cool place from the website and other reviews. Boy were we in for a disappointment. The food was alright but certainly not worth the trip. There were a bunch of drunken morons screaming at...More

We stopped in for lunch. The decor was neat and the staff friendly. The food was ok but had relatively large portions.

This is the closest I've ever come to a Cheers experience. I have been a patron of this bar for years, and I keep coming back for the excellent food and wonderful service. The bartenders are very knowledgeable when it comes to their beer and...More

We had delicious scallops here! The on tap beer selection was pretty small, but we found something we liked. Servers gave helpful recommendations. It was kind of loud, but it is a bar, so to be expected. Nice booths to block some of the noise.

The place is decorated in great history photos. Had braised short rib and was cooked well and the mashed potatoes were well made. Bartender appeared to be covering the tables and was on top of getting us what we needed.

Went to Dead Presidents with friends who were visiting from out of town. While it was loud, the service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Had the soup special (crab corn chowder) and the crab cake. Both very yummy. Prices were extremely fair.

Walking distance from house we rented and great spot to watch the Nats beat the Dodgers. Food is typical pub fare and the drinks are very good. Not a spot for small kids but for adults looking for decent food and a causal friendly atmosphere...More

This is a pretty good, quiet place for brunch. Reasonably priced, too. Unique and classic choices for brunch (things like scrapple, for example). The atmosphere is pretty neat, too. As the name would imply, lots of emphasis on presidents in the decor. It's classy without...More
