Seating is at a minimum but the food is good, prices are reasonable for the area, and service is pretty fast. Nice lunch spot.

This is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is always great! This is the old Houstons that was in Georgetown...Rockville Pike...NOW Woodmont! Unassuming and personable! Restaurants of days gone by, this place reminds me of. It's like your first experience eating out every time. The atmosphere is great!

I haven't ordered rib roast for a long time until I decided to go for it here. I liked it better than what I remember at the Prime Rib. Speaking of ribs--fabulous-- as is the fish sandwich and all of the salads. Nice booths so you can have some semblance of privacy even if restaurant is full which it usually... More

We wanted to share our impressions after two recent lunches at our favorite Bethesda shangri-la, The Woodmont Grill. The restaurant was busy both times, and the popularity of this dining spot is undeniable. And each time the food was quite good, but that's not why I am writing. My husband and I feel that there was something indefinable that was... More

We were a group of four. One couple arrived 15 minutes early and requested to be seated. They were told that they had to wait for the whole group. There was not bar area in which to get a drink so they were left to wait until we arrived. The manager was attentive to the complaint but not accommodating. It... More

I've been here quite a few times. Whenever I am in Bethesda 9 out of 10 you will find me at the bar. I love the bartenders they have gotten to know through my best friend Gerald who frequent this establishment. The food & drinks are made to perfection. I still refer to this restaurant as Houston's same menu. The... More

Quite a hot spot with great service, food and musics. Bar was happening as well. Had a bit of a wait even with reservation. Highly recommend reservations.

I had a poor first impression when I entered the Woodmont Grill. The decor was not particularly appealing, and the folks at the desk would not seat me until my guest arrived, despite the fact that I was on time for my reservation and the restaurant was busy but not full. Also, the menu of choices seemed ordinary but pricey.... More

The meal was pricey but good. Excellent service. Busy and bustling. Free parking in a parking deprived area added to convenience.

Enjoyed a lovely business lunch today. The restaurant is a perfect setting for a business meal. Great American food. I enjoyed the Pan Seared Salmon with a side of broccoli. The Salmon was cooked to perfection, with a delicious subtle flavor. Incredible lunch!
