I am a frequent diner at The Potomac Grill. On this occasion, I went to lunch with a group from work. Making the reservation was easy, the service was great, and the food was excellent.

Well not a gala party, but a super choice for our 48th. The food, one reason for choosing the Potomac Grill, was up to expectations. My wife raved about her salmon and my prime rib was juicy, flavorful , tender, not raw and worthy of superlative ratings. The service was noteworthy and our server Joyce, was all personality and efficiency. It was a very enjoyable evening at a very good place to dine.

5 out of the 6 of us were happy
We had a very nice dinner two of us had the prime rib and it was wonderful, the seasoning was perfect! the pork chop also was the best. the sea food dishes were OK. unfortunately the person we were there celebrating didn't have such a nice experience. He ordered a seafood combo meal that was to come with crab legs and he never got them. I don't know if we will be back after that. I saw a burger that another table got and it looked amazing. The desserts were very good however again the person we were celebrating wanted a cake on the menu but they didn't have it that night. . .

The best secret
I have been a customer since they took over years ago, and have enjoyed every lunch and dinner. Most of my friends now eat there often. The food and service are consistently great.

Disappointing Compared to Past
Potomac Grill has been my favorite restaurant in Rockville, MD. Maybe it's not any more. Their prime rib was always the best in the area, until this visit. The cut seemed smaller, the taste no longer outstanding, and the texture was mushy suggesting excessive tenderizing. I'll visit Potomac Grill again; I hope this experience was a one-time anomaly.

Nice for Special Occasions
We like the Potomac Grille because the food is good, it's never been overcrowded when we've been there, the staff is friendly, and decor is very nice. There is a fireplace with a table for two right in front of it. Very cozy. :) We especially enjoy holidays at the Potomac Grille like Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc. The restaurant is fairly quiet so you don't feel like you're at the mall eatery. It may be a wee bit pricier than we would like, but it's not bad enough to scare us off.

A group of friend s and I tried Potomac Grill for the first time the other night. It was terrific! Becky was our waitress and she was personable, knowledgable and attentive. We ordered the Thai steak salad to share and it was amazing - so fresh. The special of grouper was done to perfection. This is a place I will go back to over and over! What a wonderful find.

There are some decent specials during the week, but Sundays are where the Potomac Grill is at its best. There's live jazz, the buffet features a good selection of breakfast, lunch and dessert foods, and they make great omelettes to order. The staff was also very friendly, prompt, and helpful when we had questions. Coffee's good, too.
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place is always a go-to when I have visitors. The Sunday morning brunch, with live jazz music is the perfect way to spend a leisurely morning. The food is pretty decent with my favorite being the roast beef (ask for the house-made horseradish sauce)! The best thing about this all-you-can-eat brunch buffet? It's only $16!

A group of 7
We had made reservations for 9, although only 7 showed up. The staff were great! we had a separate area, and when another large group came, the staff asked if they could be put in the adjacent area before seating them.
the food was delicious; the cook came out to ask us our opinion. The service was attentive but not over bearing. Overall, it was a delightful evening. I plan to go back with my family.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wide selection of good food at reasonable price. Very nice basic menu as well as daily specials. Service is friendly and it's a very comfortable place to dine.

Great Restaurant in Rockville
Robin was a great server. Shrimp and greens and the pork chop was delicious in every way!! We will definitely go back!!

Delicious meal - grilled salmon
Delicious meal - grilled salmon & bok choy with wasabi mashed potatoes. Yum! We each had delicious meals & all 4 of us were happy.
Well priced & nicely served

Tomato crab and dill soup!!
I would go back for this soup alone. I don't even care for tomatoes! But this tomato crab and dill soup was fantastic. The filet medallions were raved about along with the mashed potatoes. And the bread and olive oil dip was pleasant as we waited for our meals. The tuna sandwich fell short (I asked for it to be rare and it came out very well done, and was difficult to eat with the thick sliced veggies on the sandwich).
The service was very friendly. Although, our waitress became absent for long stints towards end of our meal.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. And I saw that they have comedy nights on Wednesdays and karaoke on Thursday's. Sounds like nights I'll definitely have to go back and try. Especially for the soup!

The Jambalaya is awesome!
Very professional wait staff, very creative kitchen -- one of my favorite restaurants!

The queen size beef prime
The queen size beef prime rib was nicely flavored and a larger portion than expected. Quick service gave us plenty of time to get to the nearby Fitzgerald Theater. Excellent specials offered, which made me think twice about ordering the prime rib I planned to order before I arrived. Reasonable prices and plenty of parking make this restaurant a neighborhood gem.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
loved the neighborhood vibe.
loved the neighborhood vibe. Karaoke with fairly decent singers. Awesome waitress-- service has always been good. I feel appreciated for bring my business to this place!

Evening with long time friends
We had a great meal,waitress was excellent and food absolutely delicious. We did not feel rushed and were able to sit and chat with our friends. We will return! I would like to be able to see a band that we could dance to after dinner.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friendly staff, tasty food,
Friendly staff, tasty food, happy we finally tried it! Well be back.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always something new to try in the daily specials! Whether you go for a scrumptious dinner or just drop by for a sandwich in the middle of the day, the food is always fresh and flavorful -- one of the best kitchens around, IMHO!
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great For Groups!
I hosted a business dinner for 12 here & they did a super job. Nice private room (I had not even requested), great service & good food. We will be back!

Nice and easy
Potomac Grill is a nice and easy place to eat a meal, not loud, fast and attentive service and decent food in my opinion. Located in a strip mall lots of parking so in and out is easy.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
My mom and I ate at the Potomac Grill last Sunday. As usual, the staff was great as well as the food.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
WE ate from the special menu.
WE ate from the special menu. Prime Rib for 15.99. Chicken barley soup was a thick stew type not really a soup. Very tasty. Service was excellent and fast. Portions very large-dinner for the next night with left the overs. Will go again
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent, as always
Rockville's best kitchen (IMHO) and most professional wait staff. It's always fun to see the specials list, and the regular menu is diverse and delicious!

The Potomac Grill is a local gem!
I dine at Potomac Grill on a monthly basis. I am a vegetarian who does eat fish. Their seafood selections are delicious and always fresh. I usually have the crab caked or one of the salmon selections. The crab cakes are pure crab and the best ever ! The plating is very nice. Appetizers and soups are wonderful. Service is very personable and outstanding. The owner is also one of the chefs and often greets the guests in the dining room. I love the Potomac Grill. Joe was our server this last time and he was superb. Well done Potomac Grill.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Comfortable and good
It is easy to talk. Service was just right - available but not fawning.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was great!
Every dish we had was delicious - well seasoned and perfectly prepared. Steaks and seafood were both done well which is rare. We'll go back!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and atmosphere were enjoyable, though not remarkable. Service was attentive without being intrusive. All in all, a pleasant place to meet an old friend for lunch, though the portions were surprisingly small (bucking the recent trend of serving more food than one person should actually eat).

I love the Potomac Grill.
I love the Potomac Grill. I dine here at least monthly. I always order from their good selection of seafood items The salmon and crab cakes are superb! I dined here on October 20, 2013 with a friend who also was very pleased with his meal. Food, service and atmosphere wonderful. Thank you, Potomac Grill for another excellent dining experience.

Excellent as always
We have been to the PG countless times. It's always great. The servers are friendly and fun and they get it right. The food portions are ample and always cooked to perfection. What more can you say? If you have a group that needs to talk get one of the high booths and you'll have lots of privacy and comfy space.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food and low noise
Eight of us met for lunch here on a Thursday. We meet every other month to catch up. This is a great restaurant for that as it is not too noisy, so you can hear each other talk ... but not deadly quiet either. The food is really good, too, with a nice variety, and good daily specials. Prices are moderate. I received several emails after the lunch, complimenting me on the excellent choice of a restaurant.

I really love this neighborhood
I really love this neighborhood restaurant. I have taken a number of my friends to the restaurant for different occasions although this was the first time that I had eaten at the restaurant at night. I took a friend to the restaurant for an early birthday dinner celebration. The food was great. He loved the lamb chops and I enjoyed the mahi mahi dinner. The prices are competitive with Montgomery County restaurants. The plates are a good size and the bread and olive oil dip are very tasty. We sat in front of the fireplace - great spot to be. Everyone was so friendly. The waitstaff are great, especially the sons of the owner. This time Joe served us. The most recent last time it was Dan. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I made a reservation for six people. The restaurant was VERY accommodating when we arrived and put the group in a "booth." Initially, we thought that a table would be better and the restaurant staff was willing to make the change. The service was outstanding and everyone enjoyed the food that each of us ordered. Everyone in the group was impressed with every aspect of the restaurant and we all commented that we should return.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed her Birthday dinner at the Potomac Grill. Highly recommend the Monday Prime Rib Special! Good drinks, good menu and great service.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Relaxing atmosphere, great service
A friend and I had a late lunch there recently and had a lovely time. The food and service were very good and the price was very reasonable. Most of all we appreciated the fact that we could easily converse. The waitress even succeeded in having the music stopped for awhile. The pumpkin ice cream and coconut sorbet were fantastic.

We love The Potomac Grill.
We love The Potomac Grill. Usually we order (1) Grilled Caesar, (2) Prime Rib, and (3) Garden Vegetable Pasta. Especially we love their bread with our favorite pesto.

Outstanding food and superb service
I love the Potomac Grill and eat here on a monthly basis. This time, I had the crab cakes which were absolutely wonderful. The crab cakes served here are pure crab meat and the best ever! Our server was Joe who was an extraordinary server. Thank you, Potomac Grill for a superb dinner with outstanding service.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had not been to the Grill in about two months and had forgotten how much we have enjoyed the atmosphere, servers and THE FOOD! I ordered the prime rib asking for an end cut and my wife ordered the salmon with crab. We first enjoyed a marvelous artichoke dip and then the food arrived. I was first amazed at the portion size as it resembled a small roast. Melt in your mouth tender and flavorful. The salmon as well was very well prepared and loaded with cram meat piled the entire length of the large fillet. I took a goodly sized chunk of the prime home and found it as tender and enjoyable for lunch. Bravo to the kitchen, Bravo! Our server was attentive and full of personality. Out return will be much sooner.

Uneven food and service
My guest's mixed grill was excellent, but my ahi tuna was good at best. The tuna lacked the firmness that rare tuna should have.
The server was friendly, but brought cabernet sauvjgnon instead of the sauvignon blanc that was ordered; and brought a baked potato rather than the broccoli that was ordered. I would recommend to a friend only if he/she preferred meat over fish.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was pricy but delicious. Tomato crab soup, harvest salad and grilled portabello stuffed with crab were all great. The music was exceptional. A fun night all around.

Potomoc Grill - Easy and Simple
Had dinner during business trip and was very pleased with the menu and service. I had their prime rib, which was very tender and more than enough. My associate had the mixed grill which looked great (he said it was as well). Service was great. If you're looking for a romantic hot spot...this is not really it...if you want to bring your family...it works. Overall, great food..easy access..friendly atmosphere.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was a little worried, BUT
We turned out to have a great meal. When we walked in there was just a feel of . . . I can't explain. All I can say is that they did not seem to be serious restauranteurs. They are serious about their food. I was disappointed to not see one of their artichoke dips on the menu but I ordered a grilled caesar (one of the best I've ever had) and a Monte Cristo sandwich (which you can't find many places anymore). It was very good. My wife ordered the crab soup, the blackened scallops and the tornadoes of beef with crab souffle. She loved all of it. We are going back.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
The great service makes for a fantastic evening and the attention you get is real and means so much. The food never disappoints and you have great specials and options. The only draw back is the use of coupons and would love to see them expand their dining area.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Server was attentive and friendly. Suggestions were good. House wine was fine and fairly priced. Calamari was wonderful. Cream of tomato soup with crab and dill was scrumptious. All-you-can-eat shrimp was a good price for great food. On and on. We were very happy to have found the place for our short trip to the area.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We got there early on a Saturday night. The place was empty and the food was wonderful.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
A very good place to meet
The kitchen is reliable, the service is as well most of the time, and the prices are reasonable. This is not a restaurant where one would take a guest in order to impress, but it is a very good choice for meeting a friend.
