The food at the bar is very good. I especially like the burgers and fries but the salads and various bites are very good. Guinness on tap and a decent selection of Scotch rounds out the Democracy Grill well. So in a hotel which is a bit out of the way it is good to know that you can eat... More

This restaurant is located within the Marriott Suites Bethesda. Atmosphere is typical of a nice Marriott restaurant. Service was good. I had the Cesar salad with grilled chicken. It was excellent. The chicken had a true grilled taste. However, the highlight of my meal was the dessert – the Bread Pudding Bites. I’m sure they were filled with calories, but... More

This is a great place meet and have a meal. The staff are always and I mean always very nice, discreet, professional and dependable. There is not a lot to impress you with the decor other than it is kept clean and it is easy in and easy out. Not fancy but very efficient. I go here more than any... More

If you are staying in Bethesda Marriott Suites, this restaurant is located on the ground floor of the hotel. In the meny there were many choices, I dined there twice during my stay and I got two different plates of pasta, and they were both very tasty. Prices were normal, not too expensive, not really cheap.

There is a good price range and variety from sliders and salads to fish and steak. The staff is always friendly and accomondating. I have found service to be very quick for breakfast and lunch -- although friendly service is considerably slower in the evenings. Nonetheless, the food is always excellent and no one goes away hungry. Over the years,... More

On a recdent trip to DC for a neighborhood reunion we stayed at the Marriott Suites and tucked off to one side of the main lobby area is the Democracy Grill. On a Sunday morning before leaving the hotel, we opted to try the breakfast buffet to tie us over for the long ride back to Long Island. Service at... More

Good service, but nothing special about it. Uncomfortable seating arrangements.

We have stayed at the Bethesda Mariott Suites many times over the past 20 years, and have come to the conclusion that the best thing about the Democracy Grill is the breakfast and brunch offerings and service. This is especially good when a visitor doesn't want room service, or having to go off premises for breakfast. Also the PRICE IS... More
