This is a decent place to go to if you are going to the Verizon Center for something and don't want to walk to one of the better bars further away. This is what I did recently since I was with my parents for a concert.
Food: I got the burger, which was large and pretty good. Parents got steaks which were OK as well. Nothing spectacular foodwise but still very good. The cornbread is definitely the best part. Price is reasonable for area.
Beer: I got the 9 beer sampler. 4oz of each for around $8.50 is a good deal for a ticker like me. None of their beers are amazing, but most are decent. The bourbon was just awful, and I usually like bourbon beers.
We were seated at a table and had excellent service. Atmosphere a little uppity and a little too loud for a fancy steak place.
My dumbass father told the waiter I was a beer snob. Two minutes later the head brewer was over talking to us, which was a nice touch. He seems like a good guy and knows that he is making beers more for the masses (he used to brew at Pratt Street Ale house) than the hardcore beer fans.
Probably wouldn't go back, but it was nice to try.
