J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse is Silver Spring’s latest popular restaurant, bar, and dining destination that food critics and local diners are raving about. The newest neighborhood restaurant from chef and restaurateur Jerry Hollinger features chophouse classics, a raw bar, fresh seafood, Chesapeake Bay oysters, and hyper-seasonal local produce. One of the best bars in downtown Silver Spring, J. Hollinger’s has the best craft cocktails, top happy hour, and an outstanding beer and wine selection. Just as a “waterman” is a skilled boatman with a wealth of knowledge and experience, the J. Hollinger’s team carries decades of expertise and a standard of culinary excellence that led to this ambitious restaurant, bar, and venue for private and semi-private events. Founder Jerry Hollinger takes pride in hand-selecting the finest produce available for all three of his restaurants, traveling each week to historic farms in Maryland and Pennsylvania to bring back seasonal fresh produce for his restaurants, J. Hollinger’s and The Daily Dish in Silver Spring and The Dish & Dram in Kensington, Maryland. Our singular goal is to procure the very best ingredients and prepare them in a way that enhances their incredible flavors for all of our top-rated Montgomery County restaurants and bustling bars.

The focus on using only the best ingredients for the Silver Spring elevated dining restaurant takes J. Hollinger’s culinary team everywhere: from the Chesapeake Bay for local seafood to cattle farms in Texas for 100% certified black Angus beef to Iceland for sustainable sea salt that is geothermally formed in the fjords. Each item on our menu has been carefully crafted and carries a unique story, with a blend of haute cuisine and playfulness.

In addition to the bold, fresh flavors on the menu, diners enjoy an inviting ambiance in the modern-rustic dining room and horseshoe-shaped bar. Whether you’re looking for an intimate evening out nestled in one of the private booths, a celebratory dinner, or festive brunch with family and friends, or one of the best happy hours in Silver Spring and Montgomery County, J. Hollinger’s has a table or a bar stool waiting for you.

J. Hollinger’s is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Silver Spring, within walking distance from the Silver Spring Metro Station (0.2 mi.), The Fillmore Silver Spring (500 ft.) and AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center (200 ft.). Free parking is available.
