Been there a few times, usually in evening. Evenings are packed, usually by college aged folk (George Mason is just down the street). Loud, busy, and frantic - people are packed like sardines over in the bar area, tables almost always full in restaurant portion (with people flying around like vultures waiting for an empty table to show up). Beer selection is decent - nothing overly special. I remember enjoying the food, and while the sun is still up, itís a quiet, nice place to go and relax. Thereís a downstairs that doesnít bother with the pretense of the "Irish Pub" look and feel.
