Pool hall in Annandale, Falls Church, Fairfax?

I'm looking for a place to take my brother-in-law and family out for some beers/sodas and to shoot some pool after work this week. Someplace where a 13-year-old won't feel out of place either.

A place with more than just edible food would be a plus (for me), more than just drinkable beer a plus (for him). Hard Times Cafe and Cue in Fairfax or Springfield is a natural fit since if we eat and drink enough I think the pool is free but only until five pm. Are there other places close by that Chow can recommend? More like Fast Eddies's, and not Bridges. I drive by some Korean places with pool tables in Annandale and I think I've seen Vietnamese places as well. So good food might be available but some of them seem devoid of any women at all, which might feel sketchy to my sister. Decisions. Decisions.

  1. If you went a bit further East OR West you could hit one of the Bungalow Billiards locations. The wings are some of the best traditional wings in the area, imo. But you need to get the 3 mile island sauce.

      1. Crystal City Sports Pub, It's definitely a family restaurant, but a comfortable drinking atmosphere too, plus they have 6 pool tables. They have decent beers and decent food (if you get their specials, salads, or apps).
