Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great birthday brunch for my niece. Come hungry!"

  • "We have been to Mrs. K's many times over the years. We were disappointed today. Food was not that good and service was just OK."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I do suggest that when seating a party of 4 near the window, space alotted for each person's comfort should be considered."

  • "Good Morning, I was looking forward to brunch on Sunday, 6/29, but did not enjoy at all, the bacon was greasy, omelettes were overcooked,grits were too buttery and the bread was hard since it is open with no cover on it. I understand drinks such as Mimosas, Bellini are not included however to charge $3 for lemonade was a bit much. The service was great very friendly and the atmosphere extremely beautiful, but as far as Sunday brunch I was not happy and spent way too much and I was hungry when I left."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "This is a lovely neighborhood restaurant that is world class. The menu selections are varied and robust; delicately flavored and perfectly balanced. The staff are quite accommodating, well-versed, and quite helpful. I cannot possibly recommend this enough."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "My husband and I went to Mrs. K's Tollhouse for brunch. Our reservation was at 10:30, and once we were seated, there was only one other couple in the room, which made for a quiet atmosphere. The food was quite good, with a nice variety of breakfast and lunch items, and the service was excellent. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with gardens outside and unique, antique-like decor inside. I highly recommend Mrs. K's for brunch!"

  • "We ate here for our first date 41 years ago. My husband surprised me with a return visit on the eve of our 40th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful meal. The food was exceptional as well as the service. Alex was our server and he could not have been nicer. He was so friendly and gracious."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "It's been 9 months since we held our wedding reception at Mrs K's. It was so good to return there for an evening getaway dinner while Nana was in town watching the kids. Service is always amazing and the gardens were just the view we needed to relax and enjoy the beautiful Washington weather."

  • "Fantastic; fantastic; fantastic; fantastic; fantastic; fantastic; fantastic."

  • "I chose Mrs K's for my last dining experience because it was a special occasion and I wanted ambiance. Hands down this is the most charming place in Silver Spring. I dined with two others and everything on the table was delicious! The tuna taco appetizer was most amazing. The truffle fries, ribs, oysters, fish of the day, steak...all served to perfection! A+ on service from the waitress and special treatment by the manager of the barrel bar. The reason I gave it only 4 stars out of five is because the jazzy music playing was absolutely awful. I noticed it when I first sat down and tried to block it out but it never got better. If they switched it up a bit (or even turned it down) they would get 5 stars from me. Would definitely go again!"

  • "I love pretty much everything about the place. It was a cozy, romantic, ambient place depending upon which area you were seated in. The food was amazing especially the waffles (I am not usually a fan of waffles). The brunch books up quick so you usually want to make a reservation a week ahead, if possible."

  • "Overall, we like this restaurant, but ONLY for dinner. We will avoid their Sunday brunch from now on. The last time we went to the brunch (5 years ago), they kept us waiting for 45 minutes after we'd checked in. Apparently, the person who took our names forgot to note that we were indeed present. Decided to give the brunch another chance, and were disappointed again. The main difficulties seem to be poor logistical planning/preparation on their part. Rookie mistakes, such as serving room temperature mimosas, and the cold eggs on top of the Eggs Benedict (due to no heat source underneath the trays on the buffet table) support my "unacceptable" rating of the Sunday brunch."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I really want to thank Mrs. K's for accommodating our friend, Prof Dato, who is 89 years young and has to use a walker. I did not know this when I made the reservation, as I hadn't seen him for several months. But I did ask for a table which didn't require stair climbing, and when we arrived I was directed to a room with a ramp from the parking lot and no stairs. The food was excellent, and he shared lamb chops with his girl friend. My daughter enjoyed a Caesar salad and I, a chicken cordon bleu. The waitress was very patient while our guest made up his mind. Thanks again for a pleasant visit."

  • "I am from the area and as a child this place was a special treat. It maintained its charm and service. Took my 7 yr old great niece for a "ladies lunch" and the server was delightful in keeping her amused and happy, though she was being very shy. Food was good and the garden view we asked for is beautiful."

  • "While entertaining a Canadian visitor, I wanted a special restaurant for lunch--always Mrs K's in the past. (I remember the 4-course lunch/dinner that was remarkable.) We both ordered crab cake served with French fries & cole slaw. The latter was not freshly made & very salty so neither of us finished it. The rolls, as always, were delicious. Service from Christian was impeccable. Prices are high for the limited menu. The gardens are usually gorgeous but the roses had passed & petunias were the predominant flower. The experience was not as I hoped & remembered from the past so I don't know if I will return to Mrs. K's in the future."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "When I say "scenic view" in my recommendations above, I refer principally to the lovely garden, which the restaurant overlooks. Parking may require a short walk to the entrance. I have not had dinner there since 1975 when it was the original Mrs. K's. I have had lunch recently on two occasions, both enjoyable experiences. I must say that the noise level in the main dining area is not conducive to conversation. There are other quieter dining rooms, which are not always open. The menu is sufficiently varied and the food is very good. I say it is a "neighborhood gem" because it is a one-of-a-kind restaurant in Silver Spring, MD with an interesting history. A nice place to take visitors to the area for lunch! Has colonial/New England charm!"

  • "This place was very good. We arrived before it go crowded (5:15 Sunday afternoon) and were promptly seated. Food was very good and service was excellent. Bacon Mac and cheese and creamed spinach were my favorites."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Mrs. K's was a great find - seemed very homely and quiet looking from the outside, but is beautiful on the inside. Almost has a 'speak easy' ambience to it in the basement. Definitely recommend."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The service was so-so (our Waitress spent too much time telling us what she liked & didn't like on the menu); my wife's fish dish came too dry (which is hard to do with rockfish) and had sauce on it, which she asked to have put on the side; her follow-up order came out as requested and was good. We ate outside; the grounds and patio were pleasant (it was a bright & sunny Saturday). BTW, there is no separate brunch menu; it's the dinner menu or nothing."

  • "Bruch is always Great food is hot, fresh and made to order."

  • "There were four if us for dinner and we had mixed reviews. One person ordered the ribs and said they were so tough he couldn't eat them. The fried oyster appetizer was very good but the potato spinach croquette lacked flavor. A good dipping sauce would have corrected this. I have been here several times and honestly believe the food is hit or miss. The waitress also was not really on the ball. She sold three of us on cream if crab soup only to find out they actually were serving Maryland crab soup. I did have the petite filet which was good although a little over cooked for medium but my baked potato was not thoroughly cooked."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The steak was good and correctly cooked to my preference. The waiter was attentive but not pestering. The dining room and outside are very attractive."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We needed a place for a dinner meeting for 7 people and Mrs. K's accommodated us. Everything was great."

  • "Our family was treated to a memorable experience on Sunday morning. The beautiful weather showcased the amazing gardens, and brunch on the terrace was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful time."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We've eaten at Mrs. K's Toll House a few times over the years. Some of our past experiences were better than this one, some were worse. Fortunately, the place was almost empty when we were there this time around, so it was nice and quiet. The meal was good (filet mignon for me, salmon for my partner) but not spectacular, as was the service. For one-third the price, this experience would have been three times better than it was. But for the amount charged, it is questionable whether or not Mrs. K's is really worth the visit."

  • "The ambiance was terrific, however, the food was just OK. The service was excellent and everyone made our evening very special."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We brought out-of-town guests on our first visit to this charmingly historic restaurant. Our table was near a large and noisy party in an adjacent room; the temporary partitions did not stop the noise. We had a nice view of the garden, including of empty tables there. We probably should have asked to be moved. We were short two menus; ten minutes later, a different server said that they had run out of menus, though two more appeared moments later. We all enjoyed our dishes - a generous rack of baby back ribs, crab cakes, and the halibut special. The servers were pleasant enough, but the haphazard service left a bad taste. We'll probably give the ambience and the food one more try, in the hope that service was just having an off night."

  • "I have been to Mrs. K's Toll House several times for brunch and each time I have enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and dining experience. But this time, it seems as if the food was not up to par as the previous times I have dined. The eggs benedict were overcooked, the spring mix greek salad was wilted, there were chicken nuggets and French fries on the buffet, and the selection of food was not of the same quality as in the past. To my dismay, I was very disappointed with my dining experience. I will not be visiting there for brunch for awhile."

  • "This is a great spot for a family celebration, with friendly, accommodating staff, interesting food and beautiful setting. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The absence of the owner is evidenced by a number of minor annoyances experienced by the customers. Recommendation: the owner and managers obtain brunch and see what it is like to go through the process. For example, determine if tongs or spoons are better for serving sausages. Inspect the water glasses. Determine how to open closed doors if both hands are carrying items. Decide if it is better to serve new silverware between trips to the buffet line or have the guests re-use soiled silverware. Assess if the food temperature meets standards. "

  • "Mrs K's Toll House will always have a special place in my heart as it is the scene of my wife and my first date some 32 years ago. It is now my go-to place for special occasions. Our latest trip marked our youngest daughter's high school graduation."

    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Unfortunately, it was not the great experience I had remembered; while the decatence was good, the food lacked the vibrant palate rendering from the past, and the service lacked the pace and attention that this restaurant has strived for. The baked potato was served with toppings that were not requested; the wine glasses had residue that was obvious to the attentive server. The prime rib was over-done, and the request not made to the patron for its likeness. For the expectation and associated cost, I would have to say that we left with a sense of disappointment. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the atmosphere, we were disappointed that there really was not much of a menu to choose from, mainly wines. Everyone found their food delectable. We had a reservation and our seating was SUPERB! along with the general atmosphere. Again, there really was not much of a choice on the menu, so if I definitely wanted a salad only, then I would still come back. But just the scenery was awesome. the second stair on the second stair case was a bit worn and I kinda slipped, so I would recommend that the stairs be looked at and adjusted as necessary. Again very beautiful, but really wanted a bit more as far as the menu. I would definitely come back."
