How does this place get such high ratings? Truly one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had in a number of years. The only positive about this place is the very diverse crowd which was awesome. Firstly, I like diver bars a lot. But this one is kind of unkempt. The chair I was sitting in had a hidden... More

This place is your classic dive bar, except it has a great selection of beer and different whiskey. Unfortunately the service doesn't stand up that well and I've had to wait quite a long time for drinks on each of my visits.

A trip to Silver Springs to visit family was very rewarding when they recommended The Quarry House. They have been living in the Silver Spring area for many years and work in nearby DC. They are very familiar with the area establishments and always find us a fun to eat and relax.

I'm kicking myself for living in the DC area for so many years and not finding this wonderful basement tavern before now. My gluten-free wife and I were looking for a place to listen to live music on a Saturday night and have a bite. There is a huge list of craft beers of all kinds (even a couple that... More

My son recently moved to Silver Spring, so when I planned a visit to see him this past weekend, I researched a few great places to try in his new town. Well, let me tell you, this little dive was awesome! Yes, it is in a basement. Yes, you are going to drive or walk right by the entrance. Yes,... More

The Quarry House has been around forever and there are many reasons why. The subterranean location just screams dive when you walk in but the food is good, the beer good, live music and great specials make it a haunt for a diverse crew. My 24-year-old daughter began commuting here from U.Md, just like I did 38 years ago

A hidden gem, but once you find the place, you will never go to any other. The best dive bar in Silver Spring. Large collection of beer. Food is good too.

Folks. I have tats. Was a US Navy Diver and Submariner. Beer selection is excellent and food is great hot and fast. And the wings are hot if your order hot. Playlist extensive with focus on blues and old rock but you can still talk in the joint. Really fun affordable for old school or hipsters.

This is a hole in the wall bar which is all part of its charm. Most patrons seem to be regulars and sometimes the scene can get a bit weird depending on the band playing. But this place has the BEST burgers and selection of imported beer in Silver Spring. So don't be a snob, just go in and find... More

I would have never even known this place existed if someone hadn't recommended it! I definitely wouldn't have ventured down a dark stairway on a Silver Spring side street looking for delicious food! The burgers and tots are fantastic! The service is pretty good when there aren't many customers, but if you go in during peak hours, prepare for service... More
