Interesting atmosphere, but disappointing

I really wanted to like the Piratz Tavern - who wouldn't love a (non-chain, non-Disney type) pirate-themed bar and restaurant in the middle of downtown Silver Spring? it seemed delightfully random, and I had been wanting to check it out for a while. Finally gathered a small group of friends and... read more

Let me begin by saying I lived in downtown Silver Spring for decades and knew every restaurant that opened and closed. The Metro opened downtown from a depressed area in the 80's to the bustling headquarters for Discovery Channel (Communications), numerous federal buildings, and tourists. Piratz had a prime location at Georgia and Bonifant, an easy walk from anywhere in... More

To revert to the old way when you had been saved and shown how to be successfull is total madness!! You deserve the situation you are in. total madness!!

Stopped in on vacation, the pirate theme is stupid, the way they dress and try to talk like pirates is embarassing, it's plain stupid, I watched the show that saved them, and thought it would be a great place to stop, it was not, found out they dumped all the great ideas John gave them, you must be ignorant to...

Recent trip to locally owned destination restaurant, Piratz Tavern, in downtown Silver Spring, inspired a short, fictional story poem. With a charming new crew member and great food, this quaint pirate ship decor is a fantasy. Its seats are for bar and/or dinner inside and outside for those who want a quieter dinner or prefer a more engaging crowd. My... More

After seeing the bar on Bar Rescue, I was curious. The pirate theme was stupid as hell. Corporate Bar and Grill is a place I'd revisit for a bite and a drink. I've never seen an owner and staff so ungrateful. I hope they fall on their faces.

Let's just be honest, you're not going to a pirate theme'd restaurant/bar to eat gourmet food, you're going for the atmosphere and to have a good time. This is a super fun place to go, the food is decent, the servers are awesome, the clientel is a mix. If you go on a Thurs-Sat night usually the place is packed... More

What are the owners thinking? What was I thinking in going in there. You feel dirty the moment you walk in which was when I should have walked out. You cannot tell the staff from the customers. Service is more than horrible. The food and drinks when we finally got them was subpar. Infact, the whole place is a little... More
