Here at Mussel Bar & Grille, sustainability meets affordability.
We serve incomparably fresh 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 Bethesda a destination where you can go gourmet every day.
Join us daily for happy hour, oysters, great specials, and our selection of — count ’ em — nearly 160 beers (including the fineest Belgians in the world). Check out our Facebook page for our wildly popular Oyster Fests and pig roasts.
Mussel Bar & Grille is a RW Group restaurant. www.rwrestaurantgroup.com

    Mussels were steamed perfectly but the crab dip was all cream cheese. French onion soup was so-so. Our waitress tried to shotgun our dinner orders to the point we had to ask her to send our food back to the kitchen. Also, coffee was served tepid and old. But our waitress had the good grace to take it off our tab without having to ask. Staff also did not appear to be trained on their considerable beer selections. I found this odd for a Belgian style restaurant. Overall experience was okay but not great.

    The Thai mussels were excellent, but you have to love spicy. We had margarita flatbread also, which was terrific. Others in our party had the Hamburger, which they said was perfect. This is a great place for a casual dinner with friends. If you are into beer, they have hundreds of choices.

    Disappointed. I indicated that it was my husband’s birthday when I made the reservations and then after a while we ordered deserts and indicated it was his birthday. When the desserts came there was NO candle. I asked the person who brought it how come there was no candle and he either didn’t know anything about it or didn’t care. The waiter was very nice and polite but it did not extend to the service. He came constantly to get our order as soon as we sat down but once we had the order getting water refilled, clearing the shell buckets were not priorities. Most disappointing was the candle.

    Waited over 15 min w no service. When I flagged someone and asked for our waiter, she came. No smile. No greeting. No Happy Valentine's Day to my date. First sentence she said was "what order can I put in for you". Really!! Flagged the manager and asked to have my wait staff changed. Replacement was v nice and courteous. There are too many choices for good food. Go someplace else.
