I prefer the old spot, but this one works well.

I visited the Quarry House in it's new spot across the street the other day. It's not bad, really. I just like getting drunk and going to trivia night, really. And I happened to be in the neighborhood. I mean, it's a good spot. The space is well used, can fit a load of people, and the back patio... read more

I liked their large choice of Whiskeys and busy feel. I didn't like the small seats. Too bad the old place burned down, hopefully they will reopen soon with updated AC. It is one of those iconic places that you have to visit, after all, it used to be a Speakeasy at one point.

We walked in, seated ourselves and waited for about 10 minutes for someone to give us menus, though several members of the staff walked by while we waited. But I'm so glad we stayed. The beer selection is incredible, and the food is insane. Once our server started talking to us, he was super friendly too. The beer menu had... More

I'm not even sure why I'm bothering to review QH because we all know how amazing this place is. I love a great dive bar and this one takes the cake. I never even liked tater tots until I went here and fell in love. The last time I ate here I was on medication that made me lose my... More

I wish I had found this place in my 20s. A dive bar with Tater Tots, bar food, and a cool outside area in the back? I'll be back.

It's hard to find a better dive bar than the Quarry House. The beer menu is absolutely amazing--a huge variety. Burgers are consistently good, and this is one of the few places that always cooks to order. I'm a fan of rare burgers, and they understand the concept. Toppings are good; I particularly like the Black & Bleu and the... More

As the result of a fire in the original location, the quarry is now located in a building across the stree, but more imporatany, they are streetside. It does lend itself to a change in atmosphere, it now even boasts an outdoor seating area. Don't get too comfortable though, staff says that the basement is home and they will move... More

Great place for good beers and good food. The atmosphere is very laid back and easy to enjoy. I went twice in a 48 hour period.

Classic dive situated in the basement of one of the buildings in Silver Springs. The place is packed every evening and for a very good reason. Decent prices on drafts and delicious burgers are always a hit with a local crowd. Interior pretty much corresponds to the name in a true dive bar fashion. I just wish they had a... More

First the bad news: it's not open for lunch. Their tag line, "beer, burgers, basement," says it all: a beer list that rivals most pubs in the DC area, the best mouth-watering burgers, and it is 13 steps below street level. A dive, in every sense of the word, unless you're wearing Speedos. Don’t expect white linen tablecloths because what... More
