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.

    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.

    Everything was great from start to finish. The host was very friendly and our waitress was fun, very knowledgeable of the menu and made great recommendations. The food was amazing—great portion sizes and delicious flavors. We started with a few cocktails, The M&M and the Pig tail…both were just what needed after the work week. We had the deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes topped with shrimp for appetizers and for the entrees we tried the wild rabbit jambalaya and burger with the salad. Everything taste fresh and was nicely presented. I can’t wait to get back to try then for happy hour and brunch.

    I've taken different people here on 3 different occasions: old HS friend reunion, Mother's day, and anniversary. My guests and I have thoroughly enjoyed the food, service, and ambiance each time. The menu changes too, so it's exciting to try new things every visit. Easily my favorite restaurant. The chicken liver mousse is my fave.

    A goodbye dinner for a friend, and five of us gathered outdoors for drinks and then were easily ushered inside for dinner when the rain started. I love the decor and the vibe. The menu is not huge (which I liked). The cocktails were special. Our server was really spot on.

    My partner and I had a great time! The Deconstructed Pot Pie was amazing!!! If I hadn’t been told that it was vegan I would have never known. Cocktails were great too, but our server Heather was the star of the show. She was warm, welcoming and very knowledgeable about the menu. We will return to try Happy Hour and other dishes!

    We love this place. This was our second visit. The chef is not afraid to add some spice and flavor to his dishes. Chicken liver mousse was best ever. I dreamt about the accompanying grilled bread. Our grandson had the brisket Mac and cheese as take out. He’s an aficionado on Mac and cheese and said this dish was amazing. Slightly disappointed with the steak and cheese. Sub roll was too heavy and very small amount of brisket. But overall a great place that was worth the trip from Rockville.

    While the website indicated they did not open until 4pm, they actually do open earlier on most days. Additionally it is no longer required to present vax card information. My PLT sandwich with fried green tomatoes was excellent with just enough zip to make it interesting but not overpower the tomatoes. The Western potatoes were unique and tasty. Highly recommend them for a different twist on Fried potatoes. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I was there for lunch so I cannot report on the evening vibe.

    We were in town for the Coldplay concert at FedEx field and honestly this place happened to have availability. Best meal ever!!! The special was the hummus appetizer with spring veggies and this sounds crazy to say this about hummus but it was probably one of the best appetizers we have ever had. Our meals were incredible also. The service was top-notch. We live in Boston and travel constantly so no stranger to great restaurants and this place is absolutely at the very top of our list for great meals. Amazing!

    Patio was a great place to eat outside. Gazpacho was great, carnitas less so. Corn tortillas were like rubber. Rice was dry and over cooked. Not helped by our waitress who asked if we wanted the soup at the same time as the carnitas and then ignored us when we said no. So it sat there while we ate our soup. Might go back for a drink because patio is so nice.
