After passing three places that offered "healthy wraps" a Chipolte and two "upscale restaurants" I saw the words Post Pub on the side of the building. So glad I did, because I just wanted a good burger and cold beer. What I found was a perfect old-school bar with friendly people, a good beer selection and a great blue-cheese burger.... More

Too full to eat. So now we are in happy hour mode and not appetizer safar-ing. This is a great neighborhood bar. Reminds us of places we know home. The bar maid is helpful and informative and offered to charge our phones when she heard us lamenting if the low charge. My college son soon to be local was very... More

We visited the Post Pub on our 40th wedding anniversary trip to the U.S. Capital as it happened to be around the corner from where we were staying at the Loews Madison hotel. Ironically the pub was celebrating a 40th anniversary too! Kathy, the very friendly barmaid, made us feel so welcome we revisited a few times and enjoyed some... More

We happened upon the Post Pub by accident recently, and what a great little find it was. Closest thing we found to a real pub while in DC. Lively crowd at the bar, good selection of beers, priced really well by DC standards. Had a burger with the onion rings which was good and hit the spot, washed down with... More

Not much to look at from the outside, or the inside to be honest but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit! The staff were really friendly and helpful and the food was lush! Great burgers and beers on tap! A real find :-)

We wandered into this time capsule of a pub after several hours outside at the National Christmas Tree lighting. We were frozen and wanted comfort food and warmth. Post Pub was vintage perfect - weathered and worn with just the right amount of dusty and polish to the bar. Great old beer signs cluttering the walls and a straight-forward server... More

This is a great place to get a good home cooked meal in the heart of DC. Not much to look at from the outside but the food is well worth it. My family had the steak sandwich, open faced turkey sandwich, bbq sandwich and a burger. Good beer and food.

My wife and I met several different friends, 5 of us, for drinks and dinner here on a Wednesday night. Don't be pushed away when you open the door to some pretty nondescript booths. Walk thru into the bar and you'll see this is a real place. Small but good enough taps, several TV's with great real atmosphere. is it... More
