Old Town Pour House - Gaithersburg, is now open! We landed in Downtown Crown on March 2nd, 2015.<br /><br />This Pour House continues our heavy focus on craft beer, offering 120 draft handles with 90 local and global beers, and a knowledgable and passionate staff. The menu is developed by VP Executive Chef Paul Katz and features made-from scratch American cuisine with a twist.<br /><br />The restaurant and bar has 7,966 square-feet of indoor space, with an additional 1,511 square-feet available outside on the patio.<br /><br />The Gaithersburg location showcases our popular copper-inlayed bars and tables, custom-milled dark woodwork, high ceilings, and operable windows opening up to the outdoor patio space. <br /><br />Guests are invited to enjoy any and all sports games with the expansive audio/visual system including numerous HDTVs and 3 large 110" video walls.

"We were excited for our Friday night reservation, as we love trying new places, and the website and beer list looked great for dinner after a long week. In our reservation, we noted that we preferred a booth. They even called to confirm my reservation the day of and I confirmed with them then that we had a 5 year old, and request a booth or low table. Upon arriving and being seated, we were led to a high bar table. I let the hostess know of our request, as I could see all but one booth were unoccupied. She left us there standing by the high table in a busy restaurant, feeling ridiculous, while she went back to the hostess desk to "check." She came back and let us know that was the only table available, the booths were reserved. (I'm thinking YES we're one of those!). We didn't want to be difficult so sat at the high table, not easy with a 5-year old. The hostess was very nice, apologized and even said she'd have a manager visit our table. I really appreciated this, as I hadn't asked for that. BUT, a manager never came. Our server greeted us immediately, and was very informative and friendly, he was great. He was busy, looked to be dealing with an unhappy party a few tables down, so our beers were often un-filled, and it took us a long me to get our check once finished. Food was just ok, incredibly disappointing , especially for a $120 Bill. My husband and I were excited to have another date night spot in town, and another place for family dinners, but we discovered this was not the place for us, and most likely won't go back."

'The owners of The Diamondback Tavern have partnered with new investors in a separate venture called 'Portalli's' which will be located in historic Ellicott City where Jordan's Steakhouse used to be. Portalli's will be an Italian restaurant with a good mix of unique cutting edge preparations as well as classic Italian favorites. The name 'Portalli' comes from the maternal family of Evan Brown, one of the owners who will also serve as Director of Operations. Local chef Keith Holsey will be running the kitchen, and while the menu is still being developed, we plan on incorporating everything we love about Italian cuisine from all areas of Italy including several traditional Portalli family dishes. The goal is to create an Italian dining destination that will have enough originality and creativity for foodies, but will also be approachable for the casual diner or families looking for a fun night out.'- Lee Biars (owner of Ellicott City's Diamondback Tavern)

"This was our first time here and we were more than impressed. I noted in my reservation that we'd like to be by the window and the hostess confirmed that on arrival and led us to the perfect table. Our server, Rob, was amazing. Greeted us immediately, beautiful wine presentation, and timed our food arrival along with everything else perfectly. Food was delicious, perfectly done and we just felt right at home here. Ambiance lovely. We were here to celebrate a special anniversary, and our perfect dinner at Portalli's made it even more beautiful."
