    Doesn't hurt to grab an UrbanSpoon reservation if you want to get in quickly.

    The apple pie is really darn good

  • Melinda J.

    Great beer selection. Full bar. Didn't try the food. 45 min wait on a Friday night. No room at the bar.

    Melinda Jackson · July 14
  • Ashley H.

    Happy hour is 4-7 and means all appetizers are half price and beers are 3.50

    The turkey burger is pretty exquisite. If you're on the fence, contemplate no more.

    Great pre-game spot

    Great late night spot

  • Kevin K.

    Nice selection of beers. Very noisy when crowded. Best for large groups, not couples. Can get very tourist-y.

    Kevin Kissinger · April 26
  • Matthew S.

    The beers are delicious. Start dark, finish light.

  • Katarina K.

    Fantastic! Their beer is amazing and reasonably priced. And you get pretzels with your beer, too!

    Katarina Katsma · April 11
  • Mike P.

    Beer is good. Food is not. No better than Chili's or Applebee's, which is not good. Everything seems like it was pre-made and reheated. Between 6 of us not one meal was any good. Even my kids disliked

    Mike Philip · April 9
  • Gretchen

    Get the fish and chips! (And don't miss the mustard horseradish dipping sauce served with free pretzels)

    Gretchen · April 1
  • Rob C.

    Old Bay Wings are very good. This martini is so good.

    Rob Campbell · March 29
  • Teresa M.

    I love the pretzels they serve while you wait with the horseradish mustard sauce.

    Teresa Marte · March 21
  • DoubleDeuce

    To be honest, this place bores me. The huge ceilings just make white noise. But if you want a brewery, they have plenty of capacity. In the winter though, it's an awful climate.

  • Liz C.

    Soft pretzels are delicious and perfect with your drink

    Liz Caselli-Mechael · February 23

    The Atlantic Cod used for the Fish and Chips is tender and juicy.

    The meatloaf was amazing!

    Be careful, there is a cowboy fan lurking here

    I know I'm tipping a fair bit here , bit we are doing some leisurely tapas thing. So, to the tip... Try the Southwest Keg Rolls. They will not disappoint. You could pair them with the Pale Rider.

    Debz Taylor · October 13, 2014
  • Debz T.

    Try the Calamari. It is by far the greatest calamari I have ever had.

    Debz Taylor · October 13, 2014
  • Matt B.

    I got the bratwurst. It's nothing special. The beer was good though.

    Matt Bernstein · August 22, 2014
  • Molly C.

    Good beer and food, can be a bit overwhelming when busy.

    Molly Cushing · August 16, 2014
  • Andrew K.

    free soft pretzels are awesome and the wave red and prohibition Porter are the best brews.

    Andrew Kruley · August 13, 2014
  • Nicole F.

    If you think you want a steak from here..don't do it. From out of town and I thought it sounded good, but being the type of restaurant it is, I probably should've had a burger.

    This D.C. Brewpub chain offers $3.50 beers and half-priced appetizers from 4-7PM!

  • Brett W.

    Pretzels are free in my experience.

    Brett W. · July 10, 2014
  • Bridget G.

    Happening place! Service was great along with the beer. And they give@you pretzels like some restaurants do bread. An added plus!

    Bridget Griffin · June 25, 2014
  • kristindownie

    if it's on tap, the mesquite rye is campfire in a cup, and quite brilliant

    kristindownie · June 22, 2014
  • Mikael W.

    This is a great place for a group of friends to chill, hang and have great times. Peachy peach martini is delish and a. Amber beer. Shared corned dogs, wings, tuna, nachos and quesadilla. 💖 service

    Mikael Wagner · April 27, 2014
  • Ashley M.

    Not an amazing place. Everything is generic except the beer.

    Ashley Mackinnon · April 6, 2014
  • Dunja L.

    Their starters are huge and still so cheap. I'd recommend the nachos, big enough to feed two.

    Dunja Lazic · March 30, 2014
  • Nicole W.

    Best fish tacos I've had

    Nicole Weller · February 7, 2014
  • Polo O.

    Jalapeño martini it's a bar secret; ask Benny ; porter it's the best on beers

    The Bitches Say: C-. With a lack of gourmet food, Capitol City Sports Bar is average with plenty of tvs to watch the game - awarded with the Worst Sanitation Standards award for 2013 by the Bitches.

    Get the onion rings and the beer flight!

    Beer is good. Food is not. Recommend the porter.

    Lindsay Stark · November 27, 2013
  • Keri

    Free pretzels with delicious dipping sauce! Score! Beer is actually really good. I got a flight and liked them all. Steak & eggs from brunch menu really hit the spot! Def will be back when in the area
