Woodside Deli in Rockville Has Closed Permanently

by MCS Staff

Woodside Deli, located at 4 N Washington Street in Rockville, has closed permanently after nearly 12 years in Rockville. The restaurant closed late last week, with signage removed from the building over the weekend. The Silver Spring location closed in 2019 after operating for more than 70 years. While there is a Woodside Deli in Germantown, we have been told that the location is no longer connected to the original Woodside Deli. Full statement from the owners available below:

“Dear Woodside Deli Rockville family and friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce closing our doors for the final time. This was not an easy decision, especially after closing our flagship location in Silver Spring in Oct. 2019, a staple in the community for over 70 years.

We opened our doors here on North Washington Street in Dec. 2010, and in that time you have welcomed us with open arms. We are proud to have become a staple here too.

When the pandemic began, Woodside like many other restaurants, was hit hard with countless obstacles. Although the pandemic is no longer what it once was, many of the impacts have since lingered. Such as supply chain related issues, drastic price increases for goods, rent increases, and staffing shortages, to name a few.

We fought hard to stay open for our community, to remain a place you could rely on for great food and superior service. But unfortunately, we could not overcome the impacts.

To the all the loyal Woodside Deli customers over the years, we appreciate your patronage and support. You are the reason for our success over many years. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We will be holding a yard sale for anyone who may be interested in any of the memorabilia and photos we have collected over the years. We will be posting further details and dates on our Facebook.

With ❤️ and best wishes,
The Woodside Deli Family”

So sad to hear this. The staff was always wonderful to my parents, and so supportive when my mom passed and handling my Dad, knowing what he could and couldn’t eat (he had Alzheimer’s). They were faces he remembered as they had dined there weekly if not more, for the many years the Rockville location was open. I know Harry and Barbara loved you all!

Hey Michelle, Harry and Barbara were my regulars, and your family was an absolute pleasure to serve. Unfortunately, Woodside closed without giving any notice to the staff who worked so hard to create family-friendly atmosphere for our customers.

A lot of bad stuff was going on behind the scenes, and we are encouraging people to please donate to the GoFundMe for the now unemployed staff.

I’m not sure if Harry would remember me, but he is always in my thoughts and in my prayers. I consider myself so lucky to be able to call him one of my regulars.
