Selected this place on family recommendation. We enjoyed ourselves. Great food and attentive staff. Can be very noisy when crowded.

We had great plump mussels and excellent fries at the bar. The beer selection was expansive and the bartender knowledgable and funny.

After reading reviews on Tripadvisor I should have known better. The soft shelled crabs I ordered had virtually no meat and were close to being something that should be thrown out. But the beer selection was good a little pricey no a lot pricey......$3.50 for a PBR draft??? Outside seating was very nice.

I came here on a business dinner with some coworkers and wasn't really sure what to expect. We expected seafood, and there were several dishes like it, but I was pleasantly surprised by the number of mussel and frites dinners they offered. They prepare the mussels in 5 or 6 different broths. I had the Mediterranean and it was delicious! What a nice surprise with the sausage in the broth. The dipping sauces for the fries is also a nice touch.

Wine and beer selection was good too. Only other comment I would make is that the dining area is very open with wooden tables and chairs, so it can get a little noisy if you are trying to have a lot of conversations.

Nice restaurant and bar in Bethesda, with seats outside. Had mussels with fries and a beer, seating on the tables outside. Very relaxing, great food, good service. Highly recommend for a happy hour, or end of day light dinner.
