Went for brunch on a Saturday. Service was attentive and friendly. Food was fine but nothing special. Bloody Mary was fine but nothing special. Seems like a decent neighborhood joint but there are a lot of brunch options in DC and this wasn't one of my favorites.
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 $1 champaign was a great treat. Menu is not extensive, but the variety was perfect for us. Have been here in the evening as well and it's a great whiskey spot!!! B
garbage service-garbage time.
I originally didn't get half my meal and had to remind the waitress for the remainder of my food almost halfway done consuming the first half,due to the fact she was missing for about 90% of the meal time.( but she did remind me since i was 10 min late to the reservation that i only had a 2-hr window to eat here- twice. Mind you i was only hear for about an hour and ten minutes) Can I remind you, I was one of the three tables on the upstairs level. The person sitting near me was talking so loud i couldn't even hear the person sitting across from me and had to tell her to quiet down multiple times.
I came to this place on a recommendation from a friend and do not plan on coming back for anything other to get a simple/half-assed breakfast and some 1$ 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
