I've been here a few times, given that it's right by a train stop and my buses to New York leave from 30 yards from here

A: Nothing spectacular, nothing terrible - your average bar, crowded and noisy on the weekends and during the evening happy hour, laid back after. Run of the mill.

Q: Pretty solid selection with about 20 or so taps and a ton of bottles. They get some of the routine but harder-to-find stuff, like Hopslam. Pretty impressive. They don't use a whole variety of glasses but it's still sufficient.

S: At a place as big, it's easy to get missed and the wait staff aren't super-knowledgeable either. Friendly but rushed and sometimes, terse. Not very good for a beer bar.

F: The food is good but unimaginative. They do advertise some cuisine a la biere but for the best part, it's your regular bar fare

V: Don't go in expecting a great deal, unless you restrict yourself to the happy hour specials. My 12oz pint of Hopslam cost 9$ (before tax+tip) and if I hadn't missed out on bottles, I wouldn't have sprung for it. All told, their prices make me flinch, even when I figure in the fact that this is DC.

Place probably gets busy on the weekends and game nights, kind of quiet on a Tuesday. Nice selection of cans and taps. Beer centric, pub grub. Lots of local brews

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.
