The quality and diversity of the area’s restaurant scene continues to garner attention and accolades from local and national media.
Quarry House Tavern in downtown Silver Spring has been named by Eater as one of its “15 Most Lovable Dive Bars Around D.C.“
Silver Spring’s basement bar stays grounded with plenty of whiskey and graffiti-laced bathrooms. The food menu tries hard to please with elote nachos; burgers topped with everything from fig jam and prosciutto to egg, jalapeño cream cheese, and maple mayo; and beer floats for dessert.
“Thanks @eater_dc for the mention ❤️,” the tavern posted on Instagram this afternoon.
Quarry House Tavern, along with fellow Silver Spring restaurants Crisfield Seafood and Samantha’s Restaurant, was featured last year in Washingtonian’s article 61 Neighborhood Restaurants That Make the DC Area a Better Place to Eat—and Live: “Since 1917, iterations of the dimly lit tavern have survived Prohibition, two world wars, a fire, a flood, and most recently, the pandemic (behold: Quarry 7.0, a beer garden and takeout joint from modern-day owners Jackie Greenbaum and Gordon Banks). What keeps the Quarry—and its fleet of longtime customers—coming back is an unflappable spirit and offerings that range from cheap beers and no-frills booze to high-flying whiskeys, hefty burgers, and a jukebox that, like its surroundings, never seems to quit.”
Earlier this month, Quarry House announced that it would bring back live music, with the first show scheduled for this Saturday, Feb. 19.
