    This is the only place in DC I have found good boxty at! Seriously, get yourself a Magners (over ice), a whiskey steak boxty and watch some football. Thank me later.

    Awesome atmosphere, defiantly authentic Irish pub experience! Get the fish and chips, they were the best I have ever had and portion sizes are generous with a low cost:-)

    Ask for Amanda, and mention any ties to American University. If none, just be pleasant--she's an awesome bartender and a fantastic friend. The beef & potatoes pies are fantastic.

  • Steve M.

    $25 brunch is actually a really good deal when it's a $13 entree (like lamb hash) plus bottomless bloody marys for a big-time morning soccer game. Would have drank $25 in beer anyway.

    Steve M. · February 16
  • Val H.

    Go when "That Guy Mike" and his band are playing! It's like a reunion of all your favorite songs from college in a big dance party! Drinks wise, it's your typical Irish pub.

  • Angela Z.

    You must try the 'Fado Jameson and Ginger.' It's delicious! Has a kick from the spice of the ginger beer and if you're a whiskey fan- it's the perfect combo.

    Angela Z. · October 5, 2013

    Cheese dip & wedges are delicious!
