Drinking crowd

I guess the place is good mainly for the drinking crowd. I usually go for the food, which is nothing to write home about. The waiter was very friendly; I was happy with the service.

Popped into here on an early Saturday afternoon as it was near where I needed to be for an appt. I am from Northern Virginia and not used to Bethesda...thank goodness for GPS. There is no parking, but we found a garage space a block away. Should note that on Saturday's parking is free. Tommy Joe's is within walking distance... More

The food here was okay but the service was excellent. It might have been because the place was almost empty on a Saturday night.

Food is ok, more if a drinking place with a wild crowd. Had a few beers and the chicken quesadilla. Stop in for a decent happy hour and check it out. Place is kind if old and musty.

Popped in for quick dinner. The staff were very friendly and I was looked after by several staff in a team like environment. Had the fried crab cake sandwich which I really enjoyed. This is a bar/restaurant so if your looking for fine dining move on but if your looking for a nice casual friendly bar/restaurant with great friendly service... More

There are so few friendly non-chain restaurants out there that Tommy Joe's simply stands out. Super staff, great food, raw backyard feel which is so comforting in the midst of a metropolis. I will keep coming back for more and more...

This was a nice indoor/outdoor bar. Their crab dip was just Ok but the motserella sticks were huge. They were biggest mozzarella sticks I have ever had. I would defiantly go back if I was in the area.

Nice ambience. Can sit inside or out. Good service. Amazingly great food for a Sports Bar. Try the mahi tuna or crab cake.

I had the crab dip and mozz sticks. The crab dip was decent and the mozz sticks were amazing and HUGE! I had a restaurant.com. The bartender, Mike, was great, the 2 that came in after his shift were ok. Drinks were good. I would go back.
