This bar is in a tightly packed basement but the beer list is long and they serve tater tots. Need I say more? Trivia Night is a lot of fun.

Just north of the DC Maryland border in the city of Silver Spring, one of the areas best dive bars, the Quarry House pours it's patrons the best selection of beers and whiskeys in a modest basement style fashion. If you want to hang out with the locals and nosh on some tater tots and other bar style food, the Quarry House is your spot. The food here is typical bar style, burgers wings etc (try the hand made chips and dill dip or cheesy tots) and every night they have specials (Weds is my favorite bc it's Whiskey Night! 20% off all whiskey drinks!) Yes, you might run into a few hipsters and you might see a PBR or two, but don't let that sway you from the extensive selection of hops and barley on the menu! Lots on tap and tons of bottles from all over the world to choose from! If whiskey is your poison, they have a pretty vast selection of that as well. It is not the biggest of places and I do typically avoid this place on weekend nights as it gets packed... with the low celings and basementy smell, it's not my idea of an ideal situation unless of course you get there early and can score a seat.. then you might get a Rockabilly treat! This place is def. worth a visit!!

If you like good beer and tater tots, you'll love Quarry House. It's a dive bar. Literally. You have to go underground, under and Indian restaurant, to find it. It's worth the experience. Get the tots with cheddar and bacon and a brew off their extensive beer list. If you're looking for a romantic night out, this isn't your place. But if you want a low-key good time, this place is awesome.

Quarry House is a local dive bar with a great selection of beer and whisky, but it's simply too small and too loud for a good meal. The food in general is only so-so, but the house-made tater tots and fried oreos might just be worth slumming it!

Burgers come in 1/3 and 1/2 lb sizes. Fresh made potato chips with dill dip are crazy good, or try the tater tots with old bay seasoning. Mondays are half-priced burger nights and you should get there early because the place is small and it's self-seating so you'll have to hawk on diners' tables if you arrive after 7 or so. Draft beer selection is really nice or if you're not a brewski person, a full bar awaits your order. It can be loud in there. It is always dark. It is NOT fancy. Service can be hit or miss so don't go if you are in a hurry. the bathrooms are small and an afterthought. Food is very good. You will have to look to find the place, as there are no signs for it. It's just cellar stairs under the Bombay Gaylord. Fun place to catch up with friends.
