Eight Sports Bars Where Eater Readers Get Decent Food
Redline Sports Lounge
Redline's fare is certainly atypical for sports bars. Menu items include tuna tartare spring rolls, gator three ways and kobe "haute" dogs.
Cleveland Park Bar And Grill
Cleveland Park Bar & Grill's specialties include Italian dishes and pizza.
Nellie's Sports Bar
The gay-friendly Nellie's delivers solid burgers, salads and some less traditional items like arepas and empanadas.
Justin's is one of the only options in town near Nationals Ballpark. Sample pizzas, soups and bison burgers there.
Have a hefty plate of nachos, or even some oysters on the half shell at Falls Church's Dogwood Tavern.
Shelly's Back Room
Eater readers swear by the wings at Shelly's Back Room.
Duffy's Irish Pub
Duffy's is another solid option when it comes to wings.
Cheesy potato chips and seared scallops are found on the same menu at Glover Park's Town Hall.
