    Karaoke on Tuesdays is one of the best nights. Also checkout Friday nights for a DJ 10 to close. It is a lot less crowded than most bar in Bethesda on the weekends but still draws a lively crowd.

    Good bar and grill type food, reasonably priced beverages and a fun atmosphere. Caters to everyone but draws a younger crowd. Another great neighbor, eager to help with fundraisers.

  • Arnold K.

    Ownership is all about community. They bend over backward for fundraisers. I still go there every so often, even though I'm no longer in their demographic sweet spot - they're good neighbors.

    17$ crab cake sandwich was very very disappointing. Stick to drinks and appetizers. Service is great so at least it has that going for it.

    Don't order the sweet potato fries, they're coated in sugar and kind of gross. Also, it looks like a stripper rolled around on the table with all of the glitter on there.

    Apryl S · September 9, 2012

    Karaoke on Tuesday is a ton of fun, but be careful, they'll kick you off the stage if the song you choose has too much profanity.

    Rob Marshall · July 27, 2011
  • Alex O.

    Douche-y Bethesda post-collegiate frat scene on weekends. Not my kind of place, but honestly, the grilled wings are pretty damn good.
