This is a pretty solid place. Went here over Thanksgiving weekend. It's pretty much your typical sports bar with TVs and BMC signs and everything, except they actually have a very good beer selection. Ambiance is average - could be good if a game is on. Selection is good. They have a nice list of taps, probably 25 or so, with some interesting stuff. They have "tasters" available for a reasonable price where you can get approximately 5oz of a beer. Being the ticker that I am, I was all over this like a hound dog on a pack of Snausages. I got Southern Tier Raspberry Porter, Avery DuganA, Flying Dog Horn Dog, Weyerbacher Golf, and a couple others. Think they had a couple hundred bottles available too. Prices aren't bad for the area. Food is your typical bar food, but from what I remember, it was pretty good. Like the governator says, "I'll be back."

Went to RFD after visiting DC Chophouse on a Friday night around 10pm and scored 4 seats at the bar. It was actually kind of dead. However, I was able to get Hopslam and DirtWolf so I was pleased. Prices were fine, especially for being so close to the Verizon Center.

Average place with a friendly staff. The go-to place before Caps games as it is large and accommodating while being one block from the Verizon Center. Usually have decent specials and an above average beer selection for a bar of this style.
After a Caps game or on a Friday/Saturday night this place is packed with the bar being 2-4 deep.

I visited on a Sat night during the early dinner hours prior to a home Capitals game. There were a fair number of hockey and college football fans, about 2-3 deep at the bar. I met a friend there for an early dinner.
Food was fairly pedestrian with some (unfortunately) cold vegetarian nachos to start. The burgers were hot with good fries.
THe beer quality was excellent, especially the happy hour specials of $4 Two Hearted and Bells Brown. The tap selection was pretty good but really not all that special -- a lot of grocery store beers, although I was able to given Otter Creek Kind Rider Rye IPA a try. Not anything too out there though.
Service was very attentive and quite good, although things were not too busy at 6-8pm as it was in the midst of the Capitals game. Our server was inobtrusive, there everytime we needed him, and pretty knowledgeable about the beer list.
Prices off the happy hour menu were not bad at all, regular pints were $6-7 for the most part. Food prices were pretty reasonable -- I think burgers were $9-10.
RFD is a no-nonsense bar with a pretty good selection of taps and bottles and pub food. Decent but nothing too earth-shaking. Solid.
