Went here with a group of friends. It took forever to get our waiter's attention in between every order or re-order of drinks. Food came out slow. It seemed like our server was attentive to smaller tables far better that he was with us. The experience at Champps was merely okay...nothing great.

Exactly what you'd expect. Bar atmosphere, typical salads, sandwiches. Our server was good, the food fine.

I arrived at my hotel in Pentagon City very late at night and needed some dinner after a long cross-country flight. Champps still had their kitchen open at 10:30pm, so I decided to give them a shot. I ordered the bourbon salmon with a side salad. Since I'm from Seattle, I should really know better than to order salmon from... More

We ate here for a work even and I had the bourbon Wagyu burger - simply fantastic execution. The onion rings were excellent as well. Though the place was packed and the wait was a bit longer than I'd like the food was worth the wait. Highly recommended!

Good sports bar located at Pentagon City next to the fashion mall. Visited here twice during our visit to Northern Virginia, on both occasions we were seated immediately. Thursday they do $3 per small draft and have plenty to choose from. Dining tables surrounded by tv screens. Food was really good and so was the service, waitress looked tired but... More

When I first arrived, the hostess asked how many and then proceeded to grab menus and walked away. After a minute, I walked around and found a table with menus- guess that was for me. I told our server immediately that we were here for a particular item on the menu. I mentioned this SEVERAL times throughout the evening. My... More

We were surprised by the good food but a bit disappointed by the staff who were either talking between themselves, on their cell, or chatting with friends. Our server was okay though. The hostess should always acknowledge everyone in line and maybe even ask for help if the line to get in stalls due to another customer. We would give... More

Good burgers, traveling with a group of 9, visited about 5:00 pm on a Monday. No problems being seated immediately. Service was average. Located in a walk-up cul-de-sac of restaurants and shops, parking could be a problem.

Quite a nice lunch visit. Tried the wagyu burger, which was quite good and juicy. They open at 11am but the doors were actually open and they were ready for business a few minutes before. Nice staff, even sent us off with to-go drinks! A little pricey on the burgers, and the fries were below average but all said, a... More

In town to sightsee in D.C., and stopped in for dinner on our first night. Wife really enjoyed her Americana chopped salad. She found it to be fresh, tasty, and filling. Although the place was busy we were seated rather quickly and our table service was excellent.
