It was only so-so and the food was basic pub food and not that great. I'd say go to brickskellar, but I heard it was closinng.
Mcmalty also right about Baltimore. I actually took the train to and from baltimore when I went to D.c.- my uncle lives there and i visited him on way back Hit up max's that was a blast and bertas mussels has awesome cask beer on tap. Baltimore is fun and u can meet new people- people in d.c (even @ brewpubs) seem a little self righteous.
Bertha's, the best mussels. If you want an old historic place with some character, try the Wharf Rat in Fells Point, Baltimore. They make their own beer, the brand name is Oliver. The bar is like 315 yrs old and used to be a bar, a brothel, a court house, and a prison all at the same time........i'm sure there was some natural progression.....pretty convenient really.
Oh and beesy is right about me being right, thanks for the back up beesy.
