This is a cozy spot located in the heart of Silver Spring. There are so many eateries in the area that it could be missed. Quick food review: I came before club hours to enjoy a family style dinner. The happy hour menu is limited and the portions small but tasty. The Society wings are baked like a jerk wing... More

Ok, this place looks like it could be fun but not 2day. I called to make a reservation, I was told only until 6:45pm. I get there at 8pm with my friends, there is no table for us even though I see empty tables in the back. I ask what is going on, we are told those tables are reserved... More

We enjoyed the meat selection sampler platters and the Ahi tuna ceviche which was very fresh and tasty. We should have stopped there, but were talked into the roast beef. I guess I'd had a few beers and missed the part where the cost was $96.00/pound, but it was very good anyway. The waiter was very good and attentive.

Out for a drive last Sunday and stopped off at the silver tankard for a spot of lunch on way past. It's called the Martry restaurant . It was quiet enough when we entered , but the waitress said they had been very busy earlier and there was also a private function on in the main room . Their lunch... More

BEWARE, Whatever you do, DO NOT visit this restaurant. I have lived in the DMV area for 30 years and I have never experienced customer service this terrible in my life. I visited this lounge with some friends on a Saturday night and started a tab at the bar. At the end of the evening, I paid my bar tab... More

I think its mainly for the locals. Our server seem to have to warm up to us. Very relaxed atmosphere, nice place to come and relax after work. Not an extensive menu, but the food was good. A little put off be the hostess, that just could have been me. Seem to have limited seating time for certain nights base... More

I love this place. I have been many times for different occasions. I went to a daytime brunch on the roof top once. I went Saturday night to shake my groove thang. Most recently I went around 9pm Friday and I was pleased to see they had the Wizards game on the roof. It was at the bar and playing... More

I met a date at The Society on Thursday evening for drinks and dinner. We sat at the bar and the atmosphere was great. While enjoying our drinks, we noticed the stage area and learned there was going to be live music. Around 8:30 or 9 pm, the place started to fill up and the band arrived. I had a... More
