Irish Whiskey Public House Ratings and Reviews

The food was absolutely terrible. The only redeeming quality was the $1 bottles of champagne, but the food was barely edible. Do not go here.
We ate outside though as it was a pleasant day. Somewhat rustic! Seems like the $1 bottle champagne is the big draw.
Great Mother's Day Brunch
Great brunch spot for our group on twelve including two kids. Noise level was perfect for a talkative group and the $1 champaign was a great treat. Menu is not extensive, but the variety was perfect for us. Have been here in the evening as well and it's a great whiskey spot!!! B
I came here for $1 bottle of champagne... we were 5 of us, we had 5 bottles! We emptied them by 3pm. We had a blast! It was a great experience. One of the best services ever!
Can't beat the champagne brunch deal
Can't beat the champagne brunch deal
garbage service-garbage time.
I originally didn't get half my meal and had to remind the waitress for the remainder of my food almost halfway done consuming the first half,due to the fact she was missing for about 90% of the meal time.( but she did remind me since i was 10 min late to the reservation that i only had a 2-hr window to eat here- twice. Mind you i was only hear for about an hour and ten minutes) Can I remind you, I was one of the three tables on the upstairs level. The person sitting near me was talking so loud i couldn't even hear the person sitting across from me and had to tell her to quiet down multiple times. I came to this place on a recommendation from a friend and do not plan on coming back for anything other to get a simple/half-assed breakfast and some 1$ champagne.

At the Public House, we were seated in the basement by ourselves, even though we had an Open Table reservation. The featured item, corned beef, was not available. The wrap and sandwich that we ordered instead did not fit the description offered on the menu. A cod fish sandwich came on a hamburger bun rather than the brioche and no tartar sauce was in sight, making for a rather dry concoction. The BLT chicken wrap had no mayo and was obviously pre-made. Overall, aside from a cold Harp beer ( the Blue Moon was tepid at best!), the Public House dining experience was not what we expected!!
Great food and good deals
I hosted my birthday brunch here and it was fantastic. Our server was helpful and quick. Not only is the food good but you cannot beat the brunch deal which is if you purchase a $10 entree you get a bottle of champagne for a $1. It is great for groups. There are three levels including a basement and they have a patio.

I always enjoy brunch at Irish Whiskey Public House. Today, the streak wasn't as flavorful as normal with fewer home fries.
Small but lively
This is a small restaurant/tavern. Few table available but food was good! Small space with lots of Irish character!!!
Can't wait to return
Very unique townhouse turned pub in DC, cool atmosphere, liked that they kept the original stonework and surroundings on the inside. Reservation making was easy and out table was ready upon arrival Good food and good prices Will was very friendly And kindly took several pictures for my friends and I Mimosa deal at brunch sealed the deal! Can't wait to come back! !!

The entire experience was great. The staff was personable and extremely attentive. The food was cook perfectly and tasted great. As for the selection of whiskey, they really stood by their reputation. It was hard to choose but the staff made a great recommendation. So good I had to go buy a bottle. We'll definitively be returning.

Thank you for accommodating our large group!
We chose this place due to the rating of Open Table. Unfortunately, the day before we dined, there was a change of ownership and nothing was reordered/stocked. The draft beer system was broken and they were out of most all bottled beers. The waiter apologized after bringing out the Potato Soup, telling us it was actually just mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese. My "Drunken Chicken" was lukewarm and mediocre at best. The hamburger was overcooked and the French Fries were greasy. Until the new owners get a handle, I would stay clear for awhile.
Great Brunch Value
I went here with a group of friends for brunch on Sunday, it exceeded my expectations. It was lively and had a great atmosphere. There are plenty of TVs to watch sports but also had good music playing in the background. Overall great experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal there. Great food. Loved the local brew. Just an overall great experience and a highlight of the trip.
Absolutely authenic pub
The absolute best bargain brunch in town with an authentic Pub atmosphere. Very friendly staff.
Great brunching as always
I've been to Irish Whiskey several times for their brunch special - a $1 bottle of champagne with a $10 food purchase - and it never disappoints. Anywhere in the restaurant is cozy, but the upper level with the couches is my favorite.

Had a great brunch with friends here. The only issue was that we were seated by the downstairs door, so we got a draft as each person went in and out.
Great brunch place
Friendly staff, great value, great atmosphere - a real Irish pub.

Found this hidden place on a recent trip to DC! So great, excellent pretzel bites, fantastic bartender. Great cocktails. can't wait to go back next time in in DC!
great all around
I have been to Irish Whiskey for brunch a number of times now and it's always a great experience. The food prices are reasonable (well, comparatively) and the $1 bottles of champagne make it a great deal. This most recent visit was the first time I heard about their 2-hour seating limit for brunch, which is perfectly understandable. My husband and I were eating with friends from out of town and did end up lingering. We didn't feel rushed at all (the waiter pointedly drop the bill or hover) but very politely did inform us when the two hours was up and we happily paid quickly and left. Great service.
Came for a birthday brunch. Easy to reserve. Had to change time due to a glitch, but Stacy was sure to rectify it gracefully the night before. Day of, hostess was nice, wait staff was attentive. Definitely a poppin' place for brunch for the younger crowd. Overall, pleasant experience and good food - would return.
Bottomless Brunch, Endless Service
I often go to Irish Whiskey in large groups. The staff is very accommodating. Our party was larger than expected, but they made the necessary arrangements. Also, Adrii the bartender downstairs is excellent. The staff walks around an engages with guest. You will never have to ask where your server is. And its $1 bottle of champagne.

The food was delicious. Our group had a good experience and our server was very good. The noise level was a little loud for our group, but the server did his best to quiet down a loud group at the bar.
Irish Whiskey Public House is my own version of Cheers, but in DC. The staff is exceptionally spectacular week in and week out.
We had dinner outside and the food and drinks were great. Attentive staff, able to answer questions about the food and offer suggestions. The whiskey list is impressive and the pour a perfect Guinness as well.
Best boozy brunch in town
Irish Whiskey Public House offers $1 bottles of champagne when you spend $10 on food. Spending $10 is not difficult seeing as the entrees are around $12. Additionally, if you really want a mimosa, they will bring your table carafe of orange juice for $4.95. And you are not limited to one bottle of champagne if you and your friends are feeling particularly boozy that brunch! I believe the deal is per $10 spent. The food on the brunch menu is a little limited, but tastes good. All in all, good find. It is also accessible from the Dupont Circle Metro or from Farragut West, which helps if you and your friend(s) are coming from different parts of town.
Great brunch spot
Always lively and fun and the waiters and staff are incredibly nice and tolerant even when you are on your 7th bottle of champagne. Food is delicious and never had a bad experience.

The food was AMAZING. I WOULD EAT HERE EVERY DAY. All around great place. Its now a must go to whenever my family is in town.
Great brunch spot!
I come every Sunday and I am never let down. I have been to several brunches in the city and this place has emerged as the frontrunner. Reasonably priced and good food.
Great for a social atmosphere!
Would come back again for brunch! $1 champagne is hard to beat! Service could be a little better but as long as the champagne is flowing you will have a good time!
Great atmosphere and consistently good service! I like this for just drinks, brunch, and dinner. Food is standard Irish pub dishes but drinks list is more creative. Easy going and great place for catching up with friends and watching a game.

Wonderful atmosphere, the best brunch deal on mimosas, delicious food.
Where the waiters at??
Literally everything was more than satisfactory but the service. It took a good 15-20 minutes just to order because one man was covering the waiter and bartender job.
A Very Poor Pub
Very disappointed by the service at Irish Whiskey Public House. Everyone in our group of four had something wrong with our order - in three instances, the burgers that were ordered didn't come with any of the sauce listed on the menu. We also received our appetizer with the entrees (not before) and the waiter charged us for a beer we didn't order. This was my first time coming to the restaurant, and based on the service, it was also my last.
