    Excellent bar restaurant! I’m Irish and the food is authentic Irish with an upmarket twist! Great quality and value. It’s my family’s favorite place to eat out. It’s also my favorite drinking venue with the best tasting Guinness in town!

    Very disappointed, first way too brightly lit for something that has a bar , the Caesar salad with Chicken was poorly presented the chicken slices were like out of a can , round slices , nothing like Clyde’s across the street , such a shame after such an expensive build out and such a great location

    Dined here with a couple of friends. Overall service was friendly and attentive. For starters, the Caesar salad lacked flavor. Their house made soda bread was somewhat bland and burnt crust edges. The salmon was on the dry side. Standard fish and chips were tasty. Overall, it was a pleasant but somewhat underwhelming experience.

    Went in with my mom for her 93rd. We had a great time. They make a great whiskey sour. Love the chicken Milanese. The chicken liver pate' is delish. Wings too. We had a great time.

    Another dinner experience at the Hound. This time, my wife and I put together several small plates plus drinks. We especially liked the spinach empanadas along with the hummus. We tried the Kobe pigs in a blanket but couldn't taste the sauce, but I liked the deviled eggs. In the past, we've both liked the fish and chips which are especially tasty and lightly breaded and the burger and fries are also quite good.

    A reliable pint o' the Liffey and good pub grub...almost like being on the old sod. Hunter's Hound is a reliable neighborhood place for a nice drink, good food, reasonable prices. In mid-summer it was quieter than usual which was okay. We'll return for a pint and the deviled eggs to be sure.

    One of the best burgers I e had in a very long time. A little too much “char” on the breads, lettuce etc but I understand that’s a personal preference thing!

    Restaurant smelled like fish and excuse was “we sell a lot of fish and chips.” Sushi restaurants do not smell like fish when you eat in them and they only sell fish.

    Food and service were good but not great. Roll for veggie burger was bland. Even with parking validation the parking charge was $6. Pretty noisy, especially with large children’s birthday party nearby.

    The service has worsened since the time they opened. Same is true about the food, unfortunately. Understandably there are labor shortages at the moment, but the price point hasn’t change to reflect degradation of service. I’ve asked for a larger plate and the response I got was that the restaurant has run out of those. When asked for a pepper mill the only one they had was an empty one. The manager did reduce our total check to accommodate for this, but I’m afraid the overall experience has been ruined enough for me to not come back. Very sad as it was a welcome addition to the hood

    The Sunday roast was really good. There were musicians at a table who were practicing Irish tunes, which added to the ambience. There is a little Irish store, too, which is fun (Marmite, baked beans, shandies).

    Outdoor seating has a nice breeze and a bit of traffic noise from Wisconsin Ave. Mushroom and Black Bean Veg Burger is winner - made in-house. Cobb salad was fresh and tasty. Fewer guests Sunday early evening than brunch.

    We ate dinner outside late on a humid summer evening and began with drinks. My wife had fish and chips but shared some with me. It's excellent! Lightly battered with fish that was very tasty. I had two appetizers: deviled eggs and humus, both of which were very tasty. Service was professional and prompt.

    Super bland food. Whitefish salad pate was basically what I buy at deli, but with garnishes, for 3-4 times the price. Ceaser salad dressing was super bland and watered down to the point it literally poured like water Nothing tasted remotely pub-ish or of any value I really wanted to like this place and recommend it but I’m just the opposite. Save your money

    It is OK pub food but over priced and not very exceptional. Glad to have an extra restaurant in the neighborhood but it is not exceptional. The space is nice but outdoor patio seating is noisy because of the road traffic on Wisconsin Ave! I had the fish and chips, ok. Glad we tried it but doubtful I will go back.

    In DC area, it’s common for restaurants to over crowd their space, to get as many tables as they can. But The Hunter’s Hound is one of only few places I’ve been that really care about customer experience in term of space. I don’t know if this is because of the pandemic, but the ambiance is so pleasant and like I said we were not stacked right up to other people like at other places. We came on a Saturday which means it was quite busy, but not crowded and we had a great time catching up with friends. The staff were lovely and the food was great. The HH Benedict was so delicious. Will definitely recommend and come back!

    They definitely know how to pour Guinness. We went for Iris-centric fare, and were happy. We did not like one of their signature cocktails (the Lady Lavender), but I guess that is a matter of taste. The service was very attentive and responsive.

    This is my third time eating at The Hunter's Hound. I've tried the fish and chips twice (excellent; lightly-breaded) and (this time) a hamburger (extremely good). To ask for medium-rare and get it is unusual. It was prepared properly and had a crispy outside with a nice pink tasty inside. The whole leaf lettuce was fresh and the entire burger was the kind of juicy that makes you ask for a second napkin. The server was attentive and helped answer our questions. BTW, I really liked my first time ordering Estrella lager. Oh, and the fries were tasty and also well-prepared.

    Fish and chips were delicious. Fried chicken sandwich was tasty, but nothing special. The fries that came with sandwiches were amazing. We went there on a Tuesday and there were a lot more people than we expected. Good service, but the noise level can be loud.
