Comfortable, authentic atmosphere with quite a few taps and very good food. I had a couple of pints from DC Brau and thought they were good. For food, I had the Nachos and the tofu sandwich. The nachos were very tasty as was the salsa that comes with it. The tofu sandwich, which I picked on a whim, was very interesting. It was surprisingly spicy with fresh jalapeno pepper. The bar downstairs has several tables with taps at the table. Meridian Pint is a great choice for atmosphere, beer and food.

Meridian Pint is an okay place. A group of friends and I went out to celebrate a friend's 21st birthday. When we got there, around 6 PM, the place was already crowded, but some friends had gotten there before us, so we already had a booth. (We sat in the basement area as opposed to the upstairs bar level).
Soon after we got there, the number of people had grown and so did the noise level.
The bar was full of younger people who were in their early twenties to mid thirties. This place seemed to fill up pretty quickly, so you'd be hard pressed to get anything at the bar or the various tables/stools that they have in the place. The place gets really noisy, really fast.
The wait staff was pretty nice. Sometimes, you get some real jerks, but this placed had nice and knowledgeable wait staff. My friend, who turned 21, ended up mixing so much beer and liqueur that the inevitable happened. Yup, you guessed it, he was in the bathroom, passed out on the floor, making out with the toilet bowl. After about 15 minutes, one of the staff members came over and helped us get him up. Normally, the staff would be, understandably, pissed off, but they were actually cool about it and let it slide because it was his 21st. Otherwise, they probably would have been pissed that they had to deal with the situation.
At some point, by the bathroom, someone had knocked over and broken a glass. I reported it to the staff and they had it cleaned up quickly.
The bartenders were more of what I expected, super busy and rude. Mainly be cause of their attitudes and the way they treated the customers.
There was a bottle of fireball whiskey sitting on the counter with the with all the other Liqueurs. My friends and I wanted to do a shot of the fireball whiskey, which there was about half of the bottle left. Instead of serving us what we wanted/ordered, they said that they were saving it for themselves and continued to leave it there on the counter. This really turned me off to the place. It wasn't so much the fact that I really wanted the whiskey, but that they refused to serve it and left it sitting with all of the other bottles of Liqueur. Eventually, they moved it and then, later, at some point, the bartenders, all took shots of it.
The food was a little pricey, but at this point I hadn't eaten much that day and was pretty hungry. I got a steak burger, which was actually pretty tasty and came with fries.
They had a decent assortment of Draft beers. They had about 20 beers on tap and a large selection of beers in the bottle. I stuck with the draft beers and was happy with the selection.
Decent wait staff, rude bartenders, and a noisy and crowded atmosphere with a large number of younger people. It's a little bit of a walk from the metro, which was kind of a pain. Obviously, nothing they can do about being far from the metro, but just wanted to mention that aspect of it, if you are planning on visiting this place. It might be a little easier to drive there, but then again, it's hard to find parking around the bar.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Crowded and hard to park. We were seated quickly, after 15 minutes we found the hostess who sent a waitress over. The beer menu was wide, deep, and nicely described. We had appetizers, they were good. The customers tended towards loud upper middle class late 20s who's parents were paying for their apartments, and were shrill.

We spent a long weekend bar hopping the Baltimore & DC areas and this spot was one of our faves. The bartenders knew their stuff and turned me on to some other great spots to check out, specifically their sister bar Smoke & Barrel. The calamari was good, not overly fried, the dipping sauce was unique. The beer list was damn good, lots of local brews and some Firestone Walker brews I'd only read about (being a Charlotte, NC boy - the only FW's I've had were picked up in trades). The weather was right around 70 and the entire bar opens up to allow a breeze to come through. The staff were great, Luke was our bartender and he seriously hooked us up. The area can be a little rough so I wouldn't walk it at night. Great pub. Wish I was there now.

Stopped in on a recent trip through Dc. Very nice neighborhood pub. Upstairs bar with more of a dining area feel. I settled in the downstairs. The beer selection was good and prices were reasonable for the DC area. I tried the pulled prok since others had suggested it and found that it was very tasty. This is definately somewhere I will frequent when I come back into town
