Update on Bassett’s, Which Closed in June Due to a Fire

Bassett’s Restaurant at 19950 Fisher Ave in Poolesville plans to reopen next month. The restaurant closed due to a fire on June 5. Owner Erika Myers tells us repairs are taking longer than anticipated due to the wait for construction permits. The fire was located in a small building in the back, with no extension to the main building/restaurant.

Bassett’s, which opened in 1993, closed its doors on December 31, 2021. Myers, who worked at Bassett’s for over 15 years before leaving to open Rio Grande Grill in Germantown in 2020, purchased the restaurant and reopened it in May, 2022. Menu items include fried chicken, burgers, salads, and home-style entree’s such as meatloaf, chicken pot pie, and grilled calves liver.

“At Bassett’s Restaurant we’re known for our country hospitality and friendly faces; we strive to make you feel like you’re one of our family! Located in the heart of Poolesville, a quaint community nestled in the northwest corner of the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve, Bassett’s is just minutes from Sugarloaf Mountain and historic White’s Ferry. Our 125-seat restaurant has three seating areas, including a three-season covered and heated patio.” Featured image courtesy of Google Maps.
