Pandora Seafood House & Bar opens in Rockville (Menu+Photos)

Pandora Seafood House & Bar opened yesterday at Rockville Town Square. The construction took a long time, but once you step inside, you'll understand why. The interior is very impressive, with great detail and lighting accents. They did not simply refresh the old American Tap Room design.

Starters include selections from their raw bar, and appetizers like Lobster Foie Gras Ravioli and spiced prawns. The menu centers on specialties of the house like Cioppino, a classic Italian fisherman's stew featuring King Crab, mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari, and octopus in a spicy tomato broth, served with sourdough bread; and whole lobster. Cioppino will cost you $44, but serves two.
Entree choices range from several fresh fish selections, to land-lover's options like Mahogany Butter-Glazed Strip Loin and Honey Lavender Duck Breast. A wild mushroom risotto may fit the bill for vegetarian diners.
Pandora will be open Monday-Sunday from 11:30 AM to 5:00 PM for lunch, and from 5:00-10:30 PM for dinner. On Friday and Saturday nights, they will stay open until 1:00 AM. Pandora is located at 36-A Maryland Avenue, an easy walk from the Town Square parking garage on Maryland Avenue.


  1. If you're going to take five pictures of the menu, why not take them head-on such that your readers can actually read them? Better idea would be to just link to the menu page on the restaurant's website. Or put it in a PDF viewer here?

  2. Easy walk from the Town Square parking Garage? How lazy do you have to be? The garage parking is all around you. If you wanted to refer to walking distance, try an easy walk from Metro.

  3. Boom! New restaurant in Town Square.
