Kind of a dark dingy bar with a decent selection of beer. Food is average pub fair for the most part. I’ve had a few draft beers that didn’t taste like they normally should. Overall not a b place to get a beer.
Hadn’t been here in years - basically, having kids sort of knocked this place out of the rotation. Happy to visit again - and it really hasn’t changed any except that there isn’t any smoke anymore thanks to the new laws in Virginia. Small, dark, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Small but interesting tap selection, always a cask going (this time it was Victory Hop Wallop). Food is standard pub grub. The ribs used to be fantastic, but that was over a decade ago when they were still using the original Commercial Cafe rib recipe, so I don’t know what they are like these days. Great neighborhood bar. It doesn’t really score high here, but it is well worth a stop if you are in town.
