    Still one of the best bars in Silver Spring. Great bar food and beer & whiskey selection. Just be aware they are only willing to split a check with two cards.

    Come here every time I'm in town and find the beer selection impressive and bartenders chill AF.

    This is truly the gem of silver spring. In a sea of easily forgotten bars this one stands out with its energetic bartenders and eclectic atmosphere. I recommend taking your brew outside.

    The food is great but the service is slow, forgets about orders easily, and is easily "swamped".
