The atmosphere and service was good but the food is really not worth the money! My teriyaki salmon tasted burnt but the mashed potatoes and asparagus was good. We were a party of 12 and everyone had something negative to say about their food. I would recommend this place for just the atmosphere and some cocktails.

I made Reservations for poolside and was told the pool Doesn’t open until seven yet other customers were allowed to sit poolside before seven. Very disappointed.

Thanks for leaving a review. We are working to improve our operations in order to accommodate both our Day Club guests and dinner crowd, new to us admittedly! We make sure that dinner guests have a clean environment and sometimes it takes a little longer to seat early tables. We are working to improve our operations. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy our crab cakes. Our kitchen prepares them fresh every day with fresh crab meat. When you visit again hopefully you see improvements in your experience!

It was my first time here and my experience wasn’t that great the place is nice but everything else seemed off this day our food was cold we sent it back the rice was over cooked the salmon was ok and we also ordered a pitcher which was another mistake it was watered down and had no taste at all and the waiter seem to have an attitude with us because we complained.

The restaurant leaves much to be desired. Online , it looks like an oasis . In person it looks like a run down backyard !!!
We sat poolside, the cabanas or rooms off to the side of the pool look like they were at least maintained . The bathrooms were atrocious - dirty , no toilet paper . Etc!!!! The manager said they “will try” to get someone to clean them - totally unacceptable. I understand the prices based on location , but NO thank you!!

I've been to Germantown Gardens and had a really good experience but our visit yesterday was very disappointing.

Our waitress told us they didn't have any of the frozen drinks but as we were leave we saw a table who had a bunch of them.

Our bill was wrong and we were charged double for 3 or 4 items. Even after she fixed it there was still an extra shot listed.

The consistency was very off. The chicken fingers came out two very different colors, the same drinks came out very different and my friend had a piece of egg on one of her mini cheeseburgers.

Food was mediocre...nothing to rave about. Some of the food came out cold and we have to send it back. This is more a place to catch up with family/friends and drink. Not a place for a foodie like myself.

It was really nice! The ambiance was amazing and the food was great! Only thing I disliked was how long they took to serve the food. We actually never received one of our entrees because it took so long. Besides that it was pretty nice.

Waiter was friendly however disappeared throughout the dinner did not offer to refill drinks, checked in to make sure everything came out right, or cleared done appetizers for entrées. Appetizer-mussels were not cleaned properly. Ordered med rare for surf and turf got charred well done steak instead. Price is comparable to restaurants like Capital Grille however germatown garden grill's food and service were not up to par.

Ordered a $30 salmon dinner that arrived at the table 10 minutes from ordering it with cold asparagus and rice. It was ultimately rectified with a discount taken off, but it was a hassle trying to do that. The manager was very nice and reassured if we came back we would have a better experience. Ehh would not recommend if you’re looking for a “perfect” night out. Just go to try first and draw your own conclusions!

The service was poor from the beginning. I booked outside pool side. Asked for an igloo. All of them were not occupied at all my entire stay. It started to rain while I was eating. They wouldn’t even given a dry place to sit. I was standing in the door way for 15 min and had 40 min left of my reservation when it started to rain in the first place. The food wasn’t seasoned. I was celebrating my daughters achievements, 1st year of college completed. Over priced food for the taste. Terrible service. Nice atmosphere we shouldn’t have to pay gratuity up front. Allows ppl to treat u bad and still get paid. Party of four no one was satisfied

I reserved online thinking i was going to have dinner in an igloo online pic looked really cool once i got to the restaurant i was tould i needed to specifically request it also the pic was deceiving the igloos was not in good condition very old and worn down. $285 for dinner for 2 people was not worth it however the waitress was very nice & pleasant
