“A Step Above”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Yes, Addie's is a step above the usual mediocrity of the Rockville/Bethesda area restaurants.
The meals are fresh, and the atmosphere is homey and delightful. So nice not to be in a chain!
The only caveat is that I wish the wait staff would not grab the plates off the table after barely taking the last swallow of a meal.

“Food and Atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Always a great meal-you know it will be fresh and well prepared. Lovely house-cozy-outside is good, too-along the PIke-can be noisy but there is a tent so that helps! This is great for a celebration or special dinner for two or close friends. Love the homemade soups especially!

“Many tasty dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Limited options for outdoor seating on a beautiful night led us to Addies. Although your view isn't great (either the parking lot or the street), the restaurant itself is charming. I had the beet salad and the whole fish. Both were tasty. My colleague enjoyed his meal, as well. Oh...and Tuesday night is half price bottle of wine night. A pleasant surprise. Definitely will have to try it again.

“A Hidden Gem in Rockville, MD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Addie's doesn't look like the kind of place where you can get creative and eclectic American dishes. But it really is. Virtually everything we ordered was excellent, including beautifully prepared soft shell crabs (I'm a sucker for them). First courses that were particular good were a gazpacho made with melon (it works) and mussels. The desserts are good, but not particularly unusual. One thing I appreciated was a reasonably priced wine list (and a server who actually was knowledgeable about the list). There may be fancier restaurants, but this is the sort of place you feel comfortable returning to again and again.

“Good Food, Cramped Quarters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We dine at Addie's on average three times a year. The food is always good and well prepared. The service is well above average. A small but adequate wine list features less well known but very good wines. Because of the nature of the house, when seated indoors I always feel cramped; try to arrange for outdoor seating. The noise level depends on the luck of the draw; it can be quiet and enjoyable if the other diners are respectful of others; but because of the close quarters it can be difficult to hear your table companions if other diners are not so respectful.
