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, starting at 5, with $1.25 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.
