    Great beer selection, but generic atmosphere. Really good deals on wednesdays.

    For a chain microbrew they have a tasty IPA!

    Ted Trentler · October 13, 2014
  • Bruno K.

    Fish and chips and some draft beer!

    Bruno Klassmann · August 24, 2014
  • Jessica H.

    $2 beers until 9pm on Wednesdays, but get there early because it gets crowded. The food is cheap during happy hour, but it doesn't taste that great.

    Tasty wings

    Happy hour till 9pm and great variation of their own brews. Washington And White Ales are great but feel free to ask for their equivalent of your favorite for an affordable alternative.

    More like a club after 6 than a restaurant

    Great dark beer! No bitterness try the sampler.

  • Dan W.

    Food is better than all of the other local bars. Beer is way better. Someone below asked "How can they mess up chicken tenders?" I just wonder who over twelve years old orders chicken tenders?

    Dan Wendell · March 26, 2013
  • Mr. P.

    Try the Kolsh!!

    Mediocre food. First time here and was expecting great bar food but everything is bland. How do you mess up chicken tenders? Not worth the prices in my opinion.

    A cockroach just ran across the bar..... Enough said.

  • Amir Z.

    Wednesdays are $1.50 brews but it's always a sausagefest - have your beer selection ready before they ask and go to the guys in the back for fast results.

    Signature: Ballston Brown, northern-style English brown.

    Before you get on the bus, stop by and grab a pint or two! Great place to meet up with friends before heading out to Gold Cup.

    Donut holes. Do it.

    Kelly O'Keefe · April 17, 2012

    Save room for dessert. The mini donuts are amazing! Served warm with a caramel dipping sauce. Delicious!

  • Anna S.

    Great if you're looking for a good drink, appetizer or salad. Not so great if you're looking for a genuinely great steak.

    Anna Stalvey · October 2, 2011

    Get a 2 am burger and a dark beer! It's awesome!

    Best pretzels in the world.

    Elliot Guisinger · April 15, 2011
  • Rob P.

    Tip well on Wednesday nights. Servers deserve a little extra for slinging all those $1.50 pints.

    Rob Pitingolo · March 13, 2011

    Wear your Redskins Jersey on Sundays. Rumor has it on Sunday’s, purchase pint for $4.95, and receive $2.50 refills all day.

    Buck fifty drafts on Wednesday. Get there early to secure a table.

    Gets super packed but the cheap happy hour on Wednesday nights its pretty incredible; good brew for $1.50 until 9PM.
