Quickway Japanese Hibachi

  • 3088 Festival Way
  • Waldorf, Md

Quickway Japanese Hibachi is a DC Metro area franchise with approximately 25 locations. This will be the first location in Southern Maryland.

Located in the same building as Mission BBQ in The Shops at Waldorf shopping center, they will have “fresh, quality food, served fast, with style”. It is Teppanyaki-style cooking brought to a quick-service restaurant. In addition to protein dishes, they offer salads, sides, and sushi. All are fresh with homemade sauces. Their focus on healthy means reduced salt, no trans-fats, and no MSG.

This restaurant is not open yet. I will update when I have additional information.

Rock & Toss Crab House

  • 2928 Festival Way
  • Waldorf, MD

Rock & Toss Crab House is a local franchise opening soon in The Shops at Waldorf. Located in the former Genghis Grill space (next to Panera), they feature Cajun-style seafood and a seafood boil. The seafood boil is a popular way to cook the seafood. It is served in a big plastic bag in a metal pan. Along with the seafood the boil includes corn and potatoes. This method of preparation infuses a lot of flavor into the food.

This will be the second Waldorf restaurant offering a seafood boil. The other restaurant is the Crafty Crab in the St. Charles Towne Plaza (former Hard Times Café location).

This restaurant is not open yet. I will update when I have additional information.
