Great service, atmosphere and amazing food

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.

I had the pleasure of dining at Woodmont grill with my boyfriend last week, It was amazing. We had the fried oysters appetizer & Hawaiian rib eye's as our main course. IT was amazing! Our server was extremely accommodating. The live jazz and diverse crowd was wonderful as well. I will be back!

The exterior of the restaurant doesnt give any clues to the restaurant itself. It is well set up for couples or groups Menu is good, very reasonably priced,and more expensive options.

Great food and service as usual even on a very busy holiday night (Christmas Eve). I was pleased to see that they still had the full menu instead of a limited menu like some restaurants do on holidays

We used to really enjoy the Woodmont Grill but the prices are ridiculous now. The food is good - but they have a lot of restrictions now - but mostly it is over-priced. There is a great deal of competition in Bethesda and therefore we do not go there any more.

I have been going to Houston's (now Woodmont Grill) for over 20 years. The quality of the food is superb as well as the staff and service. Great ambiance too! I miss the location in Rockville.

This is one of family's favorite restaurants. It is very popular so you will need a reservation or you will have to wait. The atmosphere is comfortable and clubby with lots of leather booths and dark wood. They have special baffling to reduce the noise of everyone talking. Most evenings they have live jazz playing on the bar side of... More

Great restaurant. Formerly Houstons. Love to listen to live jazz from the bar and have their decadent veggie burger that can't be low calorie as it is far too tasty with a soy glaze. Great hang out spot where one can often meet interesting people. Bar staff is especially friendly and they remember their many repeat customers who often eat... More
