The original three locations of Quincy’s Bar & Grille (in Rockville, Damascus and Gaithersburg) are beloved sports bars but the newest location at 1093 Seven Locks Road, in Potomac might be the best yet.

Open since January, the Potomac location includes features already proving very popular, beginning with the menu. “You think of Quincy’s, you think of wings, drinks and appetizers,” says General Manager Eric Rose, referring to the original three locations. “In Potomac,” he adds, “We wanted families to be able to sit and have dinner. Potomac is family-oriented, so this menu is more extensive than in our other locations.”

Indeed, the menu includes hand-cut sirloins, fried chicken, beef stew, chicken pot pie, baby back ribs, shrimp, calamari, sandwiches, wraps, flatbread, soups, salads and much more. There are vegetarian and keto-friendly options, and the menu changes seasonally. For instance, the beef stew and other heartier fare have since made way for lighter selections. There are also 20 beers on tap. The kids’ menu includes grilled cheese, sliders and other favorites. Between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, come for brunch and enjoy a special menu of classics plus some surprises, including sunny side avocado toast and breakfast beignets.

Sports fans always appreciate the TVs at all the Quincy’s locations. The Potomac location features 35, including three outdoors on the large front patio.

“We removed the original store front,” Eric explains. “We put in sliding, accordion- style glass doors. We can open the whole front to be wide open. Also, on the far wall where there were no windows we cut out a 16-foot opening and that opens accordion-style too.”

Jeff Greenberg, one of the Quincy’s partners says, “When it’s nice outside, we open up the side and front. It has a Florida feel with lots of fresh air.” By April, the outdoor spaces had already passed their first test on a couple of warm spring days. The spacious patio includes 15 tables (spaced to meet Covid-19 guidelines), each with a retractable umbrella, plus a couple of first-come, first-served couches, plenty of lights and, of course the TVs.

“On nights with especially big games, we’re going to be packed,” Jeff says happily, thinking of the Nat’s World Series and the Cap’s Stanley Cup. “It comes with the territory,” he adds. 

“Here, you also get pay-per-view UFC fights,” says Eric.

“Come here and watch the fights for free while enjoying cocktails and great food,” Jeff adds.

In addition to happy hour each weekday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Quincy’s in Potomac has bingo on Wednesdays and Family Feud on Thursdays. “All the games are family-friendly,” says Eric, who adds, “The games are no cost to play, and you can win Quincy’s gift cards.” Watch for trivia coming soon on Mondays, karaoke on Tuesdays, and the return of live music, as Covid-19 restrictions continue to be lifted.

Opening a new restaurant during a pandemic turned out to be a win-win for Quincy’s and the Potomac community. “We really liked the location, and we thought the area was very under-served. There was no real sports bar in this general area,” says Jeff, who adds that there is also ample parking at the new location. With their customers’ happiness in mind, they paid attention to every detail, including outlets with USB ports around the bar and at every booth. It is no wonder then, that Eric says, “We have gotten off to a great start.”
