Love their choices of beers. Always get a lovely welcome from the staff. Never had a meal that wasn't excellent. I I I would love to say the dessert s are good but I have always been too full to enjoy one.

Really fun local watering hole to hang out at! Excellent beers brewed on-site! Their service can be spotty...someday they are real friendly and other days.... The outside deck is very nice, but most days the outside bar is closed. The only negative is that they permit smoking on the outside deck and the entire smoking crowd goes there. So, if... More

We go here about once per month for trivia and I've noticed a decline over the last year or so. Positives: The food is good to very good depending on what you order, and that has held up. Alison the bartender is great. Negatives: I think the beer has slipped a little. I'm an IPA drinker, and I don't particularly... More

Went here after dogfish had over 1 hour wait. Pretty good compared to it. We had loaded tots appetizer and pretzels both good. Burger and their Reuben version very good and beer is good too. Affordable and service was fine for decent gastropub. Will be back.

Growlers is a Gaithersburg institution featuring micro beer and American fare. The bar is a hangout for locals. It's necessary to enter via the bar so Saturday night crowds make the place less family friendly for me anyways. The burger and beer we had were very gooD and service was also good. For a sample of olde Townes Gaithersburg, this... More

My family and friends have been visiting this place for years. We like their hamburger specials and a drink at the bar. The Menu is not very exciting but it tries to be different. Stick with the old favorites and you'll do fine. Their burgers, calamari, cobb salad are all good bets. The potato chips as nocho's not so much.... More

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!
