    Probably one of the best Irish restaurants I've been to. The Irish Breakfast is little in the expensive side, but it's worth it.

    I have never had dinner here. However, the two times that I've been there for happy hour and hors d'oeuvres have been really nice the food was very good as are the beer selection on the drinks.

    Crappy service & waitress had a personality of a gnat. The female manager was useless & knows nothing about satisfying a dissatisfied customer. Food was below average in my opinion. Never going back!

    Waaay overpriced for a pint but I guess that's DC.

    Good Irish/English food but atmosphere is just your typical restaurant. Don't expect an Irish Pub.

    Cheap bottomless mimosas, if you can suffer through the horrible service. We sat for 2.5 hours before getting a side of bacon.

    Named after the White House architect -- an Irish immigrant who planned the first White House design AND the second after it was burned down in 1813 during the War of 1812.

    Disappointed in the service -- waitress that refuses to provide good service, but placed 20% gratuity on the bill.

    Its a fun place at the bar for sure.... just don't ever go to sit down dinner. The food was horribly bland and disappointing.

    This I must declare: the ham and pickle sandwich is quite possibly the best sandwich at Hoban's.

    Fitz is the cute, nice Irish bartender. He says the accent is real. That said, I have a friend with food allergies who had troubles here. A mixed bag.

    I ordered shepherds pie, but received some type of beef stew. Also, they did't have any "James Hoban Ale". My wife's meal was perfect (pot pie.)
