I was here for lunch and had a salad. It was a great salad and reasonably priced. They had some monstrous sandwiches that friends had. The had large balconies that would make for a fun night life

I really miss O'Donnell's. Never had the occasion to visit any of the intervening restaurants. My wife and I stopped by for a late lunch. There were few other customers so noise level was low and it was easy to carry on a conversation. It is self seating and it took a while for a waiter to show up. After... More

If your looking for a fancy restaurant, this is not the place. Tommy Joe's is a very casual bar and the perfect place to let your hair down and have a great time. Banjo and Mike are the best bartenders in the world. The food is decent and pricing is reasonable

The service was slow and the food terrible. We're locals and this is the third attempt to fill the large space since O'Donnell's left a few years ago. This is far and away the biggest miss of the three tries. Three of us had burgers - the grill was obviously dirty. The burgers tasted like char - mine burger had... More

My wife and I eaten at the Boulevard Tavern at Kentlands in Gaithersburg, MD ever since they opened. The food, atmosphere and the prices were excellent. To our dismay, Boulevard Tavern recently sold out to Tommy Joe's, which is more of a sports bar than a restaurant. We were skeptical, but gave it a shot last night. Our server was... More

Really good bar food and friendly staff. Met friends there for drinks on the rooftop, had a great time and great happy hour prices.

Disappointed from the beginning. Lower level was too noisy, you could not talk. Upper level was noisy, but minimally acceptable for noise. There were too many smokers who seemed to delight at standing on the upwind end of the restaurant so that every one could smell their smoke. One cigar smoker was particularly obnoxious. I ordered a Sangria, which tasted... More

New location at 7940 Norfolk Ave, Bethesda, in thr former Urban Heights. Not as classy as Urban Heights. Some items on menu are no longer available. Bartender said they a"re still trying to figure things out." Worst burger I've ever had ($14!!). They had cheaper bar burgers at $7 but no longer offering. Guiness was cheap ($5.50) but served warm... More

Went to this pub for lunch on a weekday. I had the chicken tenders which quite frankly were the best I have ever had! Delicious! The only constructive feedback is that they need more attentive staff.
