This place is very deceiving on the outside. It's in a rundown looking shopping center to the point I said I'm only having one drink and not eating in there. But, to my surprise, once inside, the place was packed with people (who, btw, all seemed to know each other and totally all "regulars" ) watching the game. Inside was... More

Wherever I go.....I aim to FIND where the locals go. THIS PLACE HERE....is one of those places! During our visit, we had a couple drinks, wings, and the karaoke started as we were prepping to roll out, but opted to stay for a few classic songs. We were told about the live band that plays on Thur nites. Overall, not... More

Its localoit's place - we're regular customer - visit at least every week. Unbelievable Happy Hours (4-7 M-F) and Crazy hour (8-9 everyday). Draft beer pitcher (3.5 glass) prices are between $5.50 to $8.75. Can't beat the price. The food is also good (typical pub food) and definitely worth trying as a local favorite. To be noted, its a great... More

Been here a few times while visiting buddies in Fairfax. It's a pretty fun place, they have karaoke which seems to be pretty popular. The bar is semi-closed off from the tables and karaoke, which does an ok job at keeping the smoke out. Not sure why this is listed as a coffee shop/café on TripAdvisor, but it was fun... More

Okay, straight up, this is a bar. Some might consider it a dive bar. However, I loved it! The waitress was so nice & friendly. The food was really good. I had a Club Sandwich w fries & Hubby had the steak & cheese. Fries were great! So crispy. Steak & cheese is a little greasy, but what steak &... More

Great and friendly service, good food, great atmosphere. There is a separate non-smoking section to enjoy dinner. My husband goes for karaoke on weekends, and we have gotten in the habit of having dinner there on Friday nights. Inexpensive and fun night out.

It was a lively bar/restaurant and a bit noisy. The waitresses on the two occasions we were there were attentive and friendly. The food was quite good.

I have been visiting this place for years. For the most part the staff is the same group of fast and friendly ladies that have been there the whole time. The food is great for the most part and the atmosphere is a blast.

If you are heading to the Patriot's cafe, you will find a good crowd having fun, but, I am certain 90% are smokers. The lack of ventilation here makes this the smokiest place I have been to in at least 10 years. I normally don't mind the smoke, but it is thick in this place. The stench came home with... More
