Living in Waldorf

  • Restaurants

    Waldorf may be a little off the map from the nation's capital and moderately diverse, but all kinds of cuisine is available. Peruse the local places off of the 301 Freeway for anything that suits your mood. Craving perfectly seasoned chicken? Waku Chicken serves that and more with a Peruvian kick. Order a quarter of a bird with tasty sides and complementary sauces while the owner chats you up about anything and everything. Make sure to try the gyros and other Peruvian specialities — they're just as good as the chicken.

    Don't let Simply Good's modest decor and menu full of variety (from grilled cheese to kimchi, and much more) throw you. The owner attentively helps you decide between American, Korean or a mix of both. Locals rave over this establishment's simple fried chicken but come here for the bulgogi and spring rolls.

    Pick up Middle Eastern kabobs at Silver Skewers, try an Italian/Greek flavor-fused pie at Napoli Pizzeria, or opt for classic Southern barbecue at Lefty's Barbecue Unlimited. Waldorf does casual dining well, especially when you drop in to the Silver Diner for unexpected treats, such as alcoholic milkshakes, bison burgers and stuffed banana French toast. A health-conscious vibe brings many vegetarian choices to the menu, as well as nitrate-free bacon and grass-fed beef.

    Nightlife in Waldorf doesn't run too wild; think casual pubs and taverns, with the occasional ruckus on the weekends. Grille No. 13 serves as the Irish homestead of the area. Come for strong drinks, classic Irish pub food and surprisingly tasty cake balls for dessert. Bartenders love to get to know patrons and mix up a special cocktail per each individual's request. Frequent Babes Boys Tavern just a few times, and expect everyone to know your name and the wings you want to order. This is the place to go when you want to throw back a few beers and procure random conversation. Locals come to Kobe Bar and Grill for great rolls, but the secret draw lies in the cocktail special. Just $5 gets you any of the classics that sound like a match for your sashimi — any day of the week. Kobe makes a great place to start the night. Relaxed and simple joints like these characterize Waldorf, so if you're looking to dance or see live music, head to nearby West Plains or north towards the capital.

  • History

    The area of Waldorf was settled by European immigrants before 1900. It developed into a rural crossroads with a train station and farms, known as Beantown. In 1880, a government official named the town after William Astor Waldorf. It moved to become a tobacco market village in the early 1900s, turning into a gambling destination in the 1950s. Although its been through many stages of development, Waldorf is rapidly growing and gentrifying, but still has the cozy reputation for being a stop-off location for commuters.

    Waldorf may be an updated city, but it provides a glance into the past with Dr. Samuel A Mudd House Museum. Visit to learn about the man who allegedly aided John Wilkes Booth in the assassination of President Lincoln. The neighborhood doesn't host any of its own events, but head north for several, especially during the summer months.

  • Transportation

    The neighborhood benefits from being flanked by business-lined Route 301, which connects to Virginia and elsewhere, as well as Route 5 and others. Although convenient, traffic abounds the roadways. Parking isn't too difficult, and the bus system Van-Go serves the area, connecting commuters to St. Mary’s County transit system and MTA Maryland. Waldorf isn't very walkable and transit is scarce, making it a car-reliant city in general. Uber ride sharing and cabs are common options as well.

  • Cost

    Waldorf is generally a middle-class settlement, featuring affordable housing and amenities, especially in comparison to the Washington D.C. and coastal areas. On average, residents pay $1,000 per month to rent an apartment. Beer runs at about $6, while public transportation is very affordable, setting you back only $2 for an all-day pass. Gas sit around 5 percent below the national average.

  • Shopping

    St. Charles Towne Center provides residents with favorites such as Macy’s and Express as well as a well-stocked food court. If you’re looking for something out of the norm, there are a few shops worth stopping by. Gallo Clothing has a wide range of items, from kid’s clothes to work attire. Country Florist provides a wide range of arrangements residents use for small-scale birthday celebrations as well as large events such as weddings. Overall, Waldorf’s storefronts hit all of the necessities, but for high-end shopping, head out toward the capital.

    For groceries, Safeway is always a good bet, but the neighborhood holds a few markets well worth the trip. Mom’s Organic Market covers all the healthy bases, while Nick’s of Clinton specializes in wine and spirits as well as deli items. Although Waldorf doesn't hold a farmer’s market, you can pick your own juicy strawberries at Shlagel Farms every year.

  • Parks

    Waldorf isn’t known for its great outdoors, but plenty of options for exercise are available. There are several gyms, a martial arts studio, yoga studios and a skating rink. Residents love Capital Clubhouse for the full recreational experience, including basketball courts, hockey, soccer and a rock wall. Key Bridge Boathouse is only a short drive away for kayaking and paddling. Take the entire family and enjoy a day on the water.
