J. Hollinger’s Waterman’s Chophouse is Silver Spring’s latest dining destination. The latest creation from chef and restaurateur Jerry Hollinger features chophouse classics, a raw bar, fresh seafood, and hyper-seasonal local produce, using only the finest ingredients from around the globe.
Just as a “waterman” is a skilled boatsman with a wealth of knowledge and experience, the J. Hollinger’s team carries with them decades of expertise and a standard of culinary excellence. Founder Jerry Hollinger takes pride in hand-selecting the finest produce available, traveling each week to historic farms in Maryland and Pennsylvania. Our singular goal is to procure the very best ingredients and prepare them in a way that enhances their incredible flavors.
The focus on using only the best ingredients takes the J. Hollinger’s culinary team everywhere from the Chesapeake Bay for local seafood, cattle farms in Texas for 100% certified black angus beef, all the way 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 that can be found on the menu, diners enjoy an inviting ambience in the modern-rustic dining room, featuring live music each week. Whether you’re looking for an intimate evening out ensconced in one of the private booths, or a celebratory dinner with family and friends, J. Hollinger’s has a table waiting for you.
