Here at Mussel Bar & Grille, sustainability meets affordability.

We serve the freshest fish and seafood from around the region and the world, including the best mussels in the region — and the beauty is you don’t have to make it an occasion to dine with us!

Because our volume is so high, and because of the buying power that comes when a prominent chef owns multiple, acclaimed restaurants, we’re able to keep our prices low — making Mussel Bar Arlington a destination where you can go gourmet every day.

Join us daily for happy hour, starting at 5, with $1.25 oysters, great specials, and our selection of — count ’ em — nearly 160 beers (including the finest Belgians in the world). Check out our Facebook page for our wildly popular Oyster Fests.

Mussel Bar & Grille is a RW Group restaurant. www.rwrestaurantgroup.com

As it was a few years back when we visited during travels, very delicious dishes and fresh ingredients.

Reliably delicious (and varied options) of fresh mussels and fries. I've not explored the menu further.

Great restaurant. The food was spectacular. Service was good with a couple of small blips. Too loud for my taste, but the food was worth it. We will be going back.

The Hot Toddy cocktail was actually hot an quite tasty. We had the salmon tartar with avocado mousse appetizer and that was very good. I had a pan of the white wine mussels and they were fine. My date had the seared scallops which were quite nice -- although the hostess accidentally dumped a glass of wine on the FIRST plate of them. They were quickly replaced and the dish and glass of wine were comped. If you love mussels, this would be the place to go. The space is nice and there is parking in the building.

Although a little pricey, the food was good. Their web site advertises that they purposely do not serve PEI mussels, but that is what they, in fact, serve (this is actually a good thing).

I would return if the occasion was right.

We really liked the food, especially the salmon and the octopus appetizer. The mussels were of course really good though I don't know that I'll order the Thai seasoning next time, it mostly tasted of the usual white wine. Still tasty, and the frites were great. Service was friendly but a little spotty--a bit slow, an appetizer was forgotten. But we had a great time.

Server either ignored us for extended periods or was very anxious to clear the table every few minutes before we were finished without offering drink refills, etc. Unusual as the service is usually very good.
