Pennyroyal Station debuted in the Mount Rainier neighborhood of Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC, in December 2020. The community gathering place, housed in the early 1900s-era First National Bank of Maryland building, serves comfort food as imagined by Chef Jesse Miller. The menu is complemented by classic cocktails delivering a dose of nostalgia and plenty of fun as well as a list of local and import beer and wines. The restaurant, brought to you by an ownership team made up of area industry vets Erin Edwards, Garrick Lumsden, and Chef Jesse Miller serves all-day menus in a come-as-you-are, laid-back atmosphere.

    PRS has become a staple. The service is conscientious, the food is always good and innovative and the ambiance casual and inviting. I’ve now had all their services: brunch, dinner and now lunch..all stellar.

    This was my third time at Pennyroyal Station and it never disappoints. The fried green tomatoes are great and the Pennyroyal salad is delicious. I got a scoop of ice cream for my birthday and it was so good. I will definitely go back!

    The menu at Pennyroyal is relatively small, and there are a number of dishes that are always on the menu, complemented by rotating seasonal specials. These are all consistently delicious. The same is true of the cocktails: there are a core set (highly recommend the Green Goddess!), complemented by seasonal rotation. And their cocktail game is as strong as their food menu! My only complaint is that they can be short-staffed on busy days, so you'll need to be patient getting your table and placing your order. But it's worth the wait!

    Pennroyal quickly became my favorite place to dine and enjoy cocktails with friends and family, and it has maintained that spot. I enjoyed the tofu scramble for breakfast. The menu is only improved by the addition of vegan cheese as an option as well as vegan sausage (with the tofu scramble). But that is certainly not enough to keep me from returning. And the service is spectacular, to boot!

    The venue is BEAUTIFUL! We loved the decor and the vibe. The food was decent and the mimosas were bottomless so you really can't go wrong with that lol! We did wish that there was some music playing being that it is Sunday Brunch. It would randomly get really quiet and it was a bit weird. Our server was so nice and attentive so shoutout to her!!!

    The restaurant is a gem... they need to sort out some staffing issues as we waited for 10-15 mins to be seated, and there was no crowd. On our way to the table, we were told they were putting out some personnel fires. As a manager, I empathize; I don't want to know this as a guest. Just get it right. They lost business that night as people who came behind us were also ignored. The food and craft cocktails were great... they get one more chance to solve the staffing issue.

    What an excellent experience. Tried this restaurant for the first time and could not be more impressed! The food was phenomenal- you must try the mushroom pate - and the service was top notch. I’ll definitely go again. Great place for vegans and right outside of DC. Highly recommend.

    I love PennyRoyal in general. The food is fairly tasty (most times). My main gripe however is the service. Sometimes the service is great, other times, not so much. Yesterday my service was not so good. Rebecca was my server. She wasn’t at all attentive and just a bit aloof. No sense of urgency but maybe she was preoccupied with other things. Also, the black man that’s the host - his attitude sucks. Very unwelcoming and cold. Just no good vibes. The food is always the redeeming factor but yesterday it was just okay. I’m glad my date paid and not me, but i would’ve been rolling my eyes the whole time otherwise.

    We sat outside on the patio which was less crowded and quieter than the lawn area. The waitress explained how to combine the small plates to make a dinner. The drinks were unusual and delicious. The food was amazing, especially the gazpacho with tomatoes and watermelon. Desserts were tasty, especially the chocolate bar. Check out the happy hour. Highly recommend.

    We wanted to visit someplace a step up from normal to celebrate an anniversary. Pennyroyal Station had a fantastic patio, on what must've been the nicest evening of the summer, with outstanding service and delightful food and drink options. We'd gone in originally intending to stick with a burger and a chicken sandwich but were tempted by some of the entree selections instead; we left full, happy, and content. Be aware that dessert portions are large enough to split and the bacon jam served with the rolls will become your new favorite spread. The gnats tried to share our meal, so if that would bug you maybe consider visiting on a breezier evening or heading inside. We had a great time!

    Best restaurant within the orbit of College Park/Hyattsville, hands down. Consistently good food, fairly priced, great ambiance. Service is always impeccable and strikes exactly the right balance between professional without being stiff or snobbish, and friendly without being obsequious or cloying.
