I have eaten here many times. Always outstanding! Their grilled artichokes are to die for, but not often available. Another great specialty is fried oysters, which they did have today. These were a little different with a spinach pate underneath and a dab of special sauce on top. For main course we had the always delicious Hawaiian Rib-Eye and Barbecue... More

I have been going to Woodmont Grill from it's inception and have witnessed it's menu iterations first hand. Prices have risen, but the food has remained consistently very good. The ribs are the best local ribs available. Salads always great. Spinach artichoke dip is a favorite. Always ask the waiter if the grilled artichokes are available. If they happen to... More

I like the food at Houstons, it is usually very consistent and tasty. However, it has become a rich man's paradise. The prices have soared to the sky. A steak is "market price" of $48. This is not a fabulous steak house, just a burger, salad, and simple entree restaurant. Crab cakes are $38 and again, thus is not a... More

I had the Artic Char as the special. Grilled and well seasoned with Cajun spices, just right. Vegetables were well prepared and the cornbread was hearty and tasty. Great atmosphere with live jazz.

I really can't put my finger on why I keep coming back to this place. The food is always great, the cocktails are always fabulous, the service is almost always spot on, and the ambiance is just so cozy. This is such a fun place for a girls lunch or a quaint dinner. Get a booth and go on a... More

Visited Woodmont Grill in Bethesda, MD on a Saturday afternoon. Found it to be a nice quiet place to have lunch, pleasant staff clean restaurant. I had a California burger with (real) french fries. The wife had a George bank fish sandwich, cod, with fries and salad. Both meals were really good and juicy. The prices are a little high... More

It's a wonderful place to go with your special person or friend. It's all good except the wait. Best to make reservations.

Keeping the menu simple with well prepared American classics-chicken fingers, bbque short ribs, ceaser salad, hamburgers, fries and cold slaw-helps maintain a very successful operation.
