J.A. Belt building is considered the oldest commercial property in Gaithersburg. The building has recently undergone a complete historic restoration and is listed on the National Historic Registry. The marriage of the old and new in this historic building creates a unique environment well suited for the reproduction of our turn of the century tavern. Hand-crafted beers and an excellent American menu keeps them coming back!

Expectations exceeded - Bar and Grill Food Done Right

I have heard of this restaurant but was unsure of the location or it's menu. On a whim Saturday night, I gave it a try and was impressed. Everyone of the staff members I dealt with were pleasant and attentive. There are a number of brews to sample and the menu had a nice range of offerings. We had... read more

Went to Growlers in Gaithersburg MD on Saturday night. Had a pizza that was on the appetizer menu, wasn't very hungry and the beer filled me up. I am a vegetarian and there weren't many options on the menu anyway. Beer was very good, they brew several on premises and also offer a few local beers from other local breweries.... More

I have been to Growler's on many occasions, and I keep coming back for more. Not only do I value the in-house brews, but their dishes are fantastic. The shrimp and grits are amazing, and my wife loves their salmon. Our daughters also have a great time there. Overall it is just a terrific local spot with excellent beer and... More

The wings are delicious and the pretzels were yummy too. I've been here a few times and have enjoyed my food every time. It would be great if there were more specials though, something to shake things up a bit. The beer was delicious, I especially love the Porter!

Looking for more options in Montgomery County for live music in a setting planned for live music (with a small stage for musicians and some dancing space), we believe Growler's has fulfilled this need. The music scene is on their top floor, in a warm woodsy bar setting with low tables, high tops, a u-shaped bar for 15+ people, a... More

Recently remodeled (thanks to a bursting water line), we were so happy to return to Growler's, one of our favorite local spots. Our party of five were seated quickly on a Saturday evening. We enjoyed beers and all of our entrees - they have a nice assortment of options on their menu, something for everyone. Service was a little bit... More

I've considered Growlers my hidden gem and I'm now sharing it with the world. Home of the best beer in Montgomery County and one heck of a Bloody Mary (according to my wife). Food downstairs is a 3.5 out of 5 but the bar/ grub is top notch.

A friend of ours that used to live in the area recommended Growlers to us and we were not disappointed. Our server was very attentive and did a great job in recommending beers to us to try. The beers we did have were all great and they had a nice variety to choose from. Our food was excellent and everything... More

First of all - restaurant looks good after the water leak that kept the place closed for 7 months. Great location in downtown olde Gaithersburg. We went on a Saturday afternoon. There was plenty of empty tables. The service was very slow as was the delivery of food. Was a little baffled at what was the delay. The food was... More
