Good food, place was very busy on a Thursday night, service was very good. Prices are mid range, but you definitely get what you pay for....I'd go there again. Right next to Embassy Suites Old Town Alexandria.

Food was ok. Nothing special. There was a problem with the printer, so it took about an hour to get our food after we ordered. We were offered one free dessert for the four of us to split.

We were a group of 10, and the restaurant was very accommodating. Somehow the modification from 8 to 10 diners didn't work on Open Table, but they quickly added room for the other two. Service was very good and attentive. Meals were quite good, including...More

Good food. Sports bar atmosphere you'd expect from the name. Service was a bit slow, but we weren't in a hurry and maybe it showed. Varied menu. Something for everyone with large portions.
