We've been to the Crystal City Sports Pub several times and LOVE it! It has something for everyone - appetizers, specials, entrees, burgers, salads, you name it. Don't let the name of the establishment deceive you. Right in the middle of the block of 23rd Street at S. Eads Street, this is a restaurant that is friendly for everyone...couples, sports... More

I walked there from the Marriott Crystal Gateway. Ordered the traditional breakfast with a side order of bacon. The meal was satisfying and filling. Bacon had a very good flavor but unevenly cooked (limp at one end). The sausage links were large links. I love sausage so wish restaurants would get a brand that used less meal and more meat....

I was with a group of five other guys. I was the last to arrive. They already had their adult beverages in hand and their food orders placed. I joined the group. The server was patient with me and gave me time to make my selections. The food came in a timely manner. I had the Fish n Chips, but... More

Walked to this location from my hotel. Started wit their crab soup which was spiced just right. Then went to the pork chops but substituted the potato with the mac & cheese. Both were great. Try the Black Ox beer (dark), which went well with the meal. Thanks for the great service!

I stopped here at 7pm on on Monday and grabbed a seat at the bar immediately. The service was good. There were dozens of tvs on multiple sports events. I ordered the twin pork chops and came with a baked potato and mixed veggies. The chops were good. The potato wasn't fully baked and was still hard. Still edible.

Crystal City is stands out among the restaurants around it, being that is a sport bar open early and late. The other places are diverse and not open past 10. Good for a brew or a quick bite of standard bar food. Nothing overly original on the menu, but the food is prepared quickly and good quality for the price.... More

Restaurant was very busy, they have 3 floors and most of the table were full. This is a sports bar and the fans can be verbal about their teams, not obnoxious. Food was hot and filling, large portions. Waitresses were very busy, friendly and attentive. Management is involved in the operation and are very helpful and friendly.

Stopped by here while staying at an airport hotel....good beers...on server recommendation I had the Crab Cake sandwich (house specialty.) It was ok but the crab had tasted a bit fishy. The $17 ticket for the sandwich was a bit too much for what I got. If you go here, stick to the beers and burgers and enjoy the games... More
