The Potomac Grill
Relaxing Brunch SpotThe food was good, atmosphere good and the live Jazz was a nice touch. Reasonable spot for lunch.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Delish Food and Live Music!Dan, our waiter was very outgoing and pleasant. Upon request he made many suggestions of food choices, and all our entree's were delish! The decor was very warm and inviting -- so nice! We were not aware of the live music on the weekends, and will most definitely be back to enjoy the live music and have dinner again soon!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food Excellent ServiceMy husband and I were looking for a place to go on our first date since bringing our son home. We had been there for happy hour and had a wonderful time, so we decided to try them for dinner. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. My husband had the Tournedos of Beef which were full of flavor and very tender. I had the Crab Cake which was one of the best I have ever had. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. We were unaware that they had a live band scheduled to perform, which was a nice surprise but did prevent holding a conversation due to the noise level. This however will not detract us from going again...we just now know to bring along a song list of what we would like to hear.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall Good TimeThere were 8 of us- reservation was ready which was a great start. Our server was excellent - it is tight quarters & she never missed a beat running around. Only thing I would change was it was loud- we thought there was a band at 9 but there was music (karaoke) while we were eating too, which made it hard to hear, plus tables were so close together. Food was good- creme brûlée delectable, only complaint is w shrimp special I didn't know they were served cold, & couldn't taste the Old Bay.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOur entrees have always beenOur entrees have always been first-rate at the restaurant and is the reason we keep coming back. Servers are very friendly and attentive5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local restaurantThis restaurant is one of those neighborhood finds that serves great food, even better service and a quiet restaurant. Although if you stay long enough, you will enjoy karaoke or a comedy night, but well worth the visit.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerWe had heard about the Grill from some locals but had never been before. It's not in the greatest location, but it really is a diamond in the rough.
We were a large party (13) on Mother's Day evening and were put in a separate dining area with a wonderful waitress. Food was delicious and there was none of the long waits one expects on Mother's Day.
I would definitely go back again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a reliable choice.This was the first time we went for a meal other than brunch, so this review is just to confirm my opinion the The Potomac Grill consistently offers excellent food at a good value and very friendly service. It also doesn't hurt that although the location is anything but prestigious, there is always ample parking.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy Potomac Grill.We always enjoy Potomac Grill. Clearly understated, the food is consistently good, the service always friendly and attentive, and the music an added bonus! We are sorry we hadn't discovered it long ago!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DineI found this restaurant on OpenTable and suggested it for my birthday. Had a great time. The food was great. No disappointment here. And our waiter was so energetic. He was a gem.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for a quick bite. TakesNice for a quick bite. Takes standard fair and uses new twists for interest.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyableEverything we ate was wonderful, had to stop ourselves from filling up on the crab dip appetizer, and the jambalya and crab-stuffed salmon we had for entrees were delicous. We're going back soon for the prime rib special on Monday night. The choice of large or smaller portions was also a nice surprise.
The waitress was very pleasant, attentive when we wanted something but not invasive, a perfect blend.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time we go here, weEvery time we go here, we love it! We had a group of 5, & we were so happy to be seated in sort of a private dining area so we could easily hear the conversation (which is not so easy in most restaurants). The food was simply phenomenal -- fresh seafood, great Italian & just delicious. We will continue to go back. Like the fact that the chef or owner (we're not sure which) comes out to check on how we like the food, etc. One of our favorite places!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best part about the SundayThe best part about the Sunday brunch is that kids eat free on Sundays all day!!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AM27th AnniversaryFantastic food, service and atmosphere. Great neighborhood dining for any occasion.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently a good meal andConsistently a good meal and a great value with friendly service! Can't wait to go back!!!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ribeye was so tender,The ribeye was so tender, it was mushy and lacked the usual texture of a steak. Service as usual was outstanding.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic Anniversary - Five StarsThe wait staff was attentive.. The food out of this world. My wife's Prime Rib was cooked to perfection. My Sirloin steak was superb.
Some places can't seem to get the two done correctly at the same time (hear that Outback?)
-NOT HERE-PERFECT THE FIRST TIME!!
Check out the soup - a free taste - I understand why!!! HAD to get one! It was a Turkey w/Rice.
Now in some places, the vegetables are second cousins to the meal. In other words they are an afterthought.
AGAIN - NOT HERE - The sauteed mushrooms - were to die for. The mixed vegetables, cooked to perfection... The grilled red Onion... AHHHHH.
The desert was great too.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and weThe food was great and we had a wonderful evening. Our waiter was probably new, he seemed to be unfamiliar with some of the item menus. The desserts were out of this world.
The owner, Scott, was friendly and seemed very interested in making sure all went well. We definitely plan to return.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTry it!A very friendly spot for an excellent Sunday brunch at a very reasonable price. An easy place to drive by because of it's inauspicious location in a run-down strip mall, but get over that! It's a nice place and the people are lovely.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe experience was nice atThe experience was nice at Potomac Grill. We were there celebrating my mom's birthday/easter. The service and food was really great. I will defintely return on a Friday or Saturday evening/night for the jazz, with my husband he enjoyed everything as well.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lamb stew special wasThe lamb stew special was really special, indeed! Hard to find authentic lamb stew in the States, so this was a great surprise! Also some really nice wines on the list, and the two in our group who did fish were very pleased with their choices. We will be back.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAll 4 of us had a fabulousAll 4 of us had a fabulous meal with very different entrees - stuffed salmon, grilled salmon, and jambalaya. Perfectly made! Prices are reasonable, made more so by offering petite portions (which were still generous). The live music that night was a singer and guitarist who were wonderful without being too loud or interefering with our conversation. Our first time and we will definitely be back again!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food-Great ExperienceThe only reason I didn't give the restaurant an outstanding score is because they had run out of the dish that my daughter wanted. (Corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day.) Understandable, really. We were seated by the fireplace and it was really relaxing. I could see having a romantic dinner with my hubby there. Our server was wonderful. He was friendly without seeming fake. We were checked on at regular intervals. The food was amazing. My daughter loved the steak salad. She said it was the best thing she ever ate. We both LOVED the portobella mushrooms stuffed with crab imperial. YUMMY! We definitely will be visiting The Potomac Grill again.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI stop by once a week andI stop by once a week and have never been dissappointed.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Neighborhood SpotPotomac Grill always delivers and is the perfect spot for either a quiet dinner for 2 or a group meeting in their small private dining rooms. We keep coming back month after month and have never been disappointed. I recommend it to friends, family and co workers often.1/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for a nice evening outThe food was good and the service excellent. If you go on a weekend, beware of the noise level from the band. Plan to be finished with your meal by 8:30, if you want to eat without the distraction of music and noisy patrons. :)1/26/2013 12:00:00 AMComfortable & cozyOur group of 10 had a very satisfactory and unhurried dining experience. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the small room separated from the main area.9/13/2012 12:00:00 AM
