We were staying at the Washington Duke Hotel for our our visit to watch the Duke Blue Devils play Syracuse at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

After the game we were hungry and wanted a meal and some drinks.

We had read that the Bull Durham Bar was just the place for our purposes. We got back from the game and grabbed the last table for 2. Our server was very attentive. My son and I both ordered beer, I had the Torch, it was very good, it would have been nice if the glass had been chilled before they poured my pint, small details. My son is 25 but he was asked for ID, we got a kick out of that.

We both had the caesar salad to start, it was great. I then had the turkey sandwich with fries. I loved the sandwich and the fries came out nice and crispy.

My son had the burger and fries. He enjoyed it too.

On our second round of drinks they made a mistake and brought me the wrong beer. They actually left the mistaken beer with us for no charge and brought me another Torch. Had to say that made my evening.

Our server kept our glasses full for the evening, and there was no rush on us even though the bar was packed and there appeared to be people waiting for tables.

When we were ready to leave the bill was in our hands in a minute.

Service was great, atmosphere was great, we had a good time and at the end of the evening all we had to do was take the elevator up to our room.

We will definitely be back for our next Duke visit.

We went to the bar before a basketball game. Great bar, it was packed but the great staff, Tim and Bianca, were awesome. We came back for dinner after the game. Food was reasonable for the location. I had the shrimp and grits were was a very novel interpretation, but great. My son had the chicken breast with a great review.

Started with a shrimp cocktail, shrimp and corn chowder and finished the evening off with their two fisted burger cooked perfectly. Service staff world class. High energy environment the night of a Duke game. Go there...and have an awesome dining and service experience!
