THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Addie's Restaurant Review

: Addie's contemporary American cooking starts with lunchtime buttermilk batter-fried calamari or a grilled quesadilla as a prelude to a hefty salad, one of a trio of entrées, or a casual sandwich. At dinner, choose from seafood mains, such as hardwood-grilled swordfish, or consider the grilled rib-eye, a house special. And you can't go wrong with the locally raised pork chop with bacon-braised cabbage. Desserts may include crème brûlée or a rich chocolate toffee pecan cake.

no concern from the chef

My friend and I met up for dinner the other night at Addie’s, a small but comfortable restaurant on Rockville Pike in Rockville, Maryland. We both grew up in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area and we both have worked in nice to fine restaurants at various points in our lives. Knowing the restaurant and that the owner is also the owner of 3 other successful restaurants in the area, we never expected to have such a distasteful and negative dining experience as we did at Addie’s.
After ordering a bottle of Pinot Gris to have with dinner and with our appetizer plates cleared, our main dishes promptly arrived. My friend had ordered the scallops and with his first bite of the vegetable stew that came with it, his face went a bit odd as he tried to discretely pull something that was obviously distasteful out of his mouth. We quickly brought this to the attention of our waitress, Brooke, who apologized and took the plate away. A few minutes later the chef came out and said, “I heard what happened, sorry about that” and asked my friend what he would like instead. The steak he ordered came out quickly and we finished our meal.
When we had finished, the waitress brought the check out. As mentioned, both my friend and I have extensive work experience in restaurants; still, we could never have anticipated what the waitress told us when she gave us the check. She apologized again and said the chef had told her because of what had happened not to charge us the difference between the first entrée (the scallops, which costs $27.00) and the replacement entrée (the steak which costs $29.00). We were both stunned that his response to his kitchen having cooked dirty rag into a customer’s dish would be to take $2 off the bill.
