Boh. Cheerwine. Crab cakes. Fries with Old Bay. Smith Island cake. What do these things have in common? They are distinctive, unpretentious, and undeniably "Maryland." Another culinary tradition of the Old Line State? Tommy Joe’s restaurant in Bethesda!
Whether you’re enjoying a few happy hour beers and some waffle fries after work, looking for a sports bar to watch the game on the big screen, or meeting some friends for karaoke or pub trivia, Tommy Joe’s is a reliable casual bar near The Whitney (just a stone's throw from the Bethesda metro station). Yelp reviewers praise the happy hour specials (4-7p.m. weekdays), the crispy golden fries, and the POHO wings.
Insider's tip: Be sure to check out the restaurant's events page to see what's happening before heading over. A different special is offered every day, from half-price burgers on Mondays to all-day happy hour on Sundays!
