After our quick window shopping at Chartreuse & Co., we went to Downtown Crown in Gaithersburg, Maryland for some food. It was already 2:30pm at the time and I haven’t eaten anything since breakfast in the plane at 6am that day. Downtown Crown reminded me somehow of Washington DC’s National Harbor, with streets lined up with restaurants and bars. It was a beautiful day but we were too hungry to walk around so we immediately went on a hunt for a good restaurant. :p
We checked out the map nearest to where we parked and we saw a steakhouse which sounded promising but on the way there, we saw the very inviting Old Town Pour House and it’s screaming “get in!” for us. So we did.
The restaurant/sports bar is huge! They have a small and cozy outdoor seating and a huge indoor seating area. The high ceiling made the whole place airy and bigger than it already is. I also love the huge windows that they have which opens out to the street outside. Seeing the people sitting inside from the street makes you want to join the fun.
Food menu was pretty straightforward while the drinks menu was extremely extensive. Specializing in craft beers, I think they have the most number of drinks I’ve ever seen on a menu. As earlier said, we were extremely hungry so we ordered a couple of appetizers to enjoy before our main course. We had pretzel bites, calamari, breaded pickles and a clam chowder soup for me. For the main course, we had fish tacos, ipswich clam and steak salad.
Food took forever to be delivered on our table but this I tell you, it was well worth the wait! Everything was incredible and very tasty. I can’t possibly pick a favorite since all the dishes served to us were yummy!
My ipswich clam was great too, it was the first time I’ve tried it and I’m glad I had it at the Old Town Pour House. It did raise the bar though for the next ipswich clams that I’m going to try in the future somewhere else.
Service was great too! Our server was very patient and helped us really well with my 6-year old nephew’s food allergies and made sure that everything they served my nephew was according to his allergy diet.
Old Town Pour House just made it to be my favorite restaurant in Maryland, it’s now going to be a must for me to visit it whenever I’m going to have my vacation here. 🙂
