A friend visited from out of town on a business trip and I joined him and his coworkers for dinner here. It's not what you might first expect, given its name. While it is a Lord of the Rings-themed restaurant, it looks mostly like a traditional DC-area pub, but with LOTR decor and LOTR-named dishes.
The food was VERY good and surprising. Certainly not your traditional pub fare! I had the weiner schnitzel, but others had bolognese and some other stuff I can't remember. We ordered the calamari, which was some of the best I've ever had. It was a really great experience.
Also of note, there's a small pay parking directly across the street, which is really nice.
