I live a few blocks from Woodmont Grill and have been dining there for many years, starting when it was called Houston's. I'll just list pros and cons: PROs Free parking in their lot next door if you need to drive there. This is a very significant pro in Bethesda. Very private, comfortable booths, so it's a great place to... More

We began with an excessive wait for lunch, but the food was worth the wait. Spinach and artichoke dip and fried oysters were great, as was the grilled chicken salad (unique Asian dressing) and the ding chicken sandwich. The spicy slaw on the chicken sandwich was wonderful. Service was good. Wish the water cups were much larger because mine was... More

The word BestSteakEverInTheHistoryOfStakes comes to mind. Ok, I know I'm missing a more than a few spaces, but for this particular situation, this needs to be the word!!! Simply amazing...try it. You will not be dissapointed with any cut you choose.

This used to be Houstoun's and changed hands and menu (slightly). What I love about this restaurant is that it is consistently good. Great service, clubby atmosphere. The slads are wonderful, soups delicious and their burgers are amazing. Their lemonade is tart (my kids always add sugar to make it more kid friendly). I have never had a bad meal... More

I sometimes get cravings for their chicken salad with lime vinaigrette. The food is good and service reliable. Reservations recommended, as this is a very popular restaurant. Free parking is a great bonus for downtown Bethesda.

Great atmosphere, great food. Always consistent...year after year. Great burgers and the BEST ribs. I always love the soups, especially the baked potato. THE BEST spinach and artichoke dip. No other ever comes close. Simply a favorite since the '80's..when it was Houston's.

This was a first visit, stopping in on the way to a show at the Strathmore. With no reservation (at 5:00 on a Wed night) we were seated right away. The setting is excellent, the décor very nice. Tables are spaced nicely so things are not crowded. The place is rather quiet, so much so that you can actually hear... More

Excellent food and excellent service. Crowded but fun. Had a reservation but still had to wait. It was well worth it.
