The Hunter's Inn opened its doors in the heart of Potomac Village in 1977. An Instant success, local papers named Hunter's "The best place to meet", "The best place to make a deal" and "The most romantic restaurant". Washingtonian Magazine described the burger as one of Washington's best. The Hunter's Inn has been reborn through the efforts of Washington natives Fred and Murray Berman. The two brothers combined have more than 50 years of restaurant experience. Since they've taken control over the restaurant's operations, immediate improvements have been made to the quality of food and service. Concentrating on fresh fish, quality meats and innovative menu selections as well as large entree salads, pasta, ribs, and chops. To compliment the menu, Fred and Murray have expanded and enhanced the wine list, making it one the most extensive in the Potomac area. Hunter's Inn is considered the "Cheers of Potomac".

With the look and feel of one of the "Great Camps" of the Adirondacks, Tower Oaks Lodge serves an American-style saloon menu. Adjacent to a 21-acre nature preserve, Tower Oaks Lodge is located just off I-270. The raw bar features oysters from both coasts.

The newest Chef Geoff's restaurant is the go-to destination on the Pike. Located across from Montrose Crossing, Chef Geoff's Rockville is the perfect spot for a business lunch or family dinner in a friendly and energetic atmosphere. Only minutes from the Strathmore, we're the perfect location for pre-theater dining. A three course Sunset Special is offered daily from 4:30-6 pm for $19.95. Need a break from work? There is no better place than our newly renovated bar for all-day happy hour Monday and Tuesday. Or join us for our ever-growing Bacon Bar on Wednesday and Thursday where we truly believe bacon goes great with everything. Have a case of the Mondays? We have the solution with ½ price bottles of wine every Monday. We are excited to finally be a part of your neighborhood and hope that you will come join us soon. Cheers! Chef Geoff
