About Trademark Drink + Eat
Trademark is the neighborhood bar for a remarkable neighborhood. With a nod to our close friends at the U.S. Patent and Trade Office, we take our inspiration from the innovators whose once daring ideas set the standard.
Then knowing exactly what the standard is, Trademark enjoys nothing better than tweaking it. Someone else had the brilliant idea to combine pork with beans, macaroni with cheese and gin with vermouth. We simply came up with a way to make you think you’re tasting them for the first time.
The mixologists behind our bar program understand that some drinks are made to forget a hard day, others to foster inspiration, and still others to toast old friends and instant acquaintances. We also noticed that good things happen when the atmosphere is properly stimulating. You’ll find the mood at Trademark as comfortable as it is inventive.

Trademark Drink + Eat Ratings and Reviews
For a hotel restaurant, I am consistently pleasantly surprised by how good the Jamieson Grille is. Too many times, hotel restaurants are overpriced, but this is not the case here. On our most recent visit, we had brunch with friends, and the service was stellar; the food very good. We'll be returning.
Senait is one of the best servers in Old Town. She always has a friendly smile and is very willing to make your dining experience perfect. The chef is very underrated and the three course meal is fabulous for the price...have to go Monday-Thursday for this special. Food is always on target and consistent. A hidden jewel.
the service was excellent - the menu is limited. it's not clear that the $27 3 course dinner can be ordered a la carte, though i could have asked. too much sauce on everything. i had an heirloom tomato salad that included the bitterest greens i've ever taste (not sure what it was). my husband had the pasta with lentils, and he said it was fine. the dinner came with a bread pudding dessert was great. probably would not go back.
We dine at Jamieson Grille frequently and usually the food is good to very good. But on this date both of us were very disappointed. We ordered a fish dish and a pork chop dish. The sauce on the fish was not good. The pork chop was thin and tough. The service started poorly with only cocktail napkins available but linen napkins arrived before our plates. The Grille is usually not crowded for dinner and generally all goes well but things seem to be slipping a bit lately. Hope the tide turns as we have enjoyed our many times there.

A hidden jewel.
Service was attentive, food overall was tasty and well presented. Prix-fixe menu was a good value, at $27 for three courses. My dining companion had the roast chicken and I had the halibut. The chicken was definitely the better choice. The halibut itself was tasty but the sauce was somewhat watery and the fingerling potatoes were boiled, and less flavorful than the roasted fingerling potatoes that came with the chicken. Both of us had the organic green salad to start, the tomatoes in the salad were locally grown and very juicy. The apple pie for dessert was good, although it could have been served warm to have been even better.
Although most hotel restaurants are lackluster, unless it is one owned or operated by a cause-celebre chef, this property is always consistent and the service is always spot-on.
The menu changes fairly regularly and is limited on choices. However, the portions are large and you will not leave hungry. The dinner is much better than the breakfast location.
They have a three-course prix-fixe menu Monday-Thursday that is a bargain. It's worth a visit.
The food was pretty good. We ordered the crab cake sliders and while the crabcake itself was swallowed up by the bun, it was still delicious. I just ate it without the bread. I ordered the pork chop with fruit compote and grits and it was wonderful. My fiance had the ribeye and said it was good. We would like to try it for brunch as I heard the reviews for brunch were fantastic.
We chose this restaurant to take my husband to for Father's Day. We were impressed when we walked in as the hostess & ambiance definitely met our expectations. The restaurant was only 1/3 full. Initially our waitress seemed attentive & professional but after our food arrived she became lackluster at best. We never received beverage refills although they were over 1/2 empty when our main course arrived. She placed the check on our table 1/2 way through our main course and never asked us/checked back to see if we wanted dessert, coffee, or anything else although we did. She never cleared our plates but was eager to take our payment. Since it was obvious she was done w/us, we decided we were done w/Jamieson's.
My friend and I had the most enjoyable experience at Jamieson Grille. The staff was friendly and welcoming, the food was healthy and very enjoyable, it's 2 blocks from the King Street metro, and the ambiance was truly relaxing.
For brunch, the egg white omelet with local brie and sun-ripened tomatoes was hands-down the best summer brunch I've had in a very long time!
I will be going back, and bringing the whole town with me!
I made a reservation for my wife & I and unexpectantly ended up with our infant grandchild in tow. When I called the restaurant to see if this would be ok, they were extremely nice and our table was waiting with a high chair upon our arrival. The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. A totally enjoyable experience and we'll be back. Thanks!
The Turkey sweet potato hash should be just sweet potato hash. Microscopic pieces of turkey in dish were an embarrassment to the out of town guest I brought to your restaurant. We were the only ones in the restaurant and one dish was brought with sauce on it when asked for no sauce. Will not recommend this restaurant.
The Mother's Day buffet was fine. We were surprised that a 20% gratuity was added to our bill for our party of three. The drink service was slow and unremarkable, barely deserving
the customary 15%. With the many restaurants we have here in Old Town, I will think long
and hard before dining there again. A mandatory service fee is unacceptable!
Mother's Day brunch was great! The staff was attentive, the food good and ambiance superb. It was strange to see the executive chef hands-on in the dining room. She was really involved and was out to make sure that all went well, in spite of very competent staff. Kudos!
My wife and I live across the street from the Jamieson Grille and have eaten at least two dinners there every week since they opened. We also take our family there for dinner whenever they come for a visit. And we take frequent lunch guests there every month. The Jamieson Grille is indeed a Neighborhood Gem. The food is excellent and the presentations are very attractive and unique. We love it!
The service was horrible. We had reservations, but waited 10 minutes to get seated when there were very few people in the dining area. Additionally, once we were seated in a secluded area, no waiter or server came by to take our order. In fact 3-4 walked by and didn't say a word.
The only saving grace was the cuisine for the Easter buffet. It was delightful, but the service was terrible.
Dined here for brunch w/ two children & two adults. Nice variety of brunch items, most quite tasty and a separate area for children-friendly items was a pleasant surprise. Service was just OK and although brunch for children under six years was supposed to be free w/ the purchase of an adult brunch we were originally charged for childern's meals and had to point this out to be corrected. Beverages were over priced and brunch didn't even include one mimosa or drink for adults, which you can find at many other places for brunch.
