This one is unique from the others that it has a very large area for pool, along with a large bar, that's separated from the rest of the restaurant. I assume that's what gives them most of their business because I haven't been here when it's been busy in the dining area. In fact it's usually quite dead, even on a weekend evening. There are TVs throughout in both the pool/bar area and the dining area. The beer selection is okay, with quite a few craft beers on tap but nothing extensive. The chili here is fantastic though.

The service at this particular location has been okay, but not the best out of the other locations. Service seems slow although the place is usually nearly empty.

Plenty of parking as it's in a shopping center. It's located with other restaurants and shops, with an Ikea nearby as well as the Potomac Mills Mall, so some shopping can be done before or after a meal and a beer.

Just across the street from Potomac Mills Mall, in the left corner of a strip mall, and just off of I-95, the Hard Luck Cafe is easy to find. The name above the place in big, neon red letters doesn’t hurt.

Parking abounds because of the strip mall and the place is pretty big, so getting in and out isn’t a problem. Inside there’s ample seating, a bar and quite a few pool tables.

(The eating area is separate from the pool area so neither would bother the other.)

There were quite a few goodies on tap… SN Bigfoot, Weeping Radish HefeWeizen to name a few. (I had more but can’t remember them all.)

Prices were in the moderate range and the bar staff was friendly… even to the point of bringing us samples of things they *saw* us looking at.

I will definitely go back.
