Addie's- Rockville

I have a reservation at Addie's in Rockville for Friday night. I'm bringing the in-laws and am a bit nervous about how it'll go, I've never been there. They're pretty much meat and potatos types and not very formal, so it seemed like a good place to take them from the reviews. Any thoughts on the food or atmosphere or suggestions on what to order?

  1. If they are 'meat and potatoes types then they should order the ribeye. Last time I had it there I thought it was awesome. However, regardless of what they order, I can't imagine them getting a 'bad' meal at Addies. Oh - and I always order the PEI mussels when I go to Addies - they are fresh, grit-free, and cooked perfectly. I don't know about others on the list, but I don't think of Addie's as formal - it's great food in a slightly funky location ... but I don't consider it a formal restaurant.

    1. I have to second the choice of the ribeye... some of the best meat I've eaten. I love Addies... you're parents will too. What a great choice, I think I'm going to have visit soon!

      1. If you arrive early and want cheap pre-dinner drinks (beer and most likely wine you would never order in a restaurant), you can go to Hank Dietel's Tavern next door first. :)
