There's a varied menu with many unique dishes. Everything our group tried was delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. The place has several rooms which makes for a more intimate atmosphere.

This is a family-oriented restaurant. Pretty good taps in the separate bar; there's also bands upstairs that play on the weekends. The food is rather good. I think the sesame soy wings are the best just about anywhere; the roast "the Big B" is crazy good. It's not fancy, and it's far better than pub grub, and people of all... More

Good food combined with musical bands coming from across the country to play here live tops it all! The owners are extremely friendly folks and the bartenders are great to have a chat with. You sure are destined to see familiar faces each time you visit there. Food is lovely and the service is extremely warm! Enjoy it!

Living in Bowie, OBTG is convenient. But what makes it special are the owners and the food. The owners are very friendly and greet us each time we visit. The food - what can I say: The homemade soups are delicious, the burgers are the best in the area, and the specials are amazing for a locally-owned establishment - better... More

I have a soft spot for the OBTG. It is unique, serves a varied menu, and has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. Service is not perfect,but you won't mind when you see how nice and accommodating the staff is. The food is usually good- love the blackened salmon and cream of crab soup. They have live entertainment upstairs, which tends to... More

We stopped in for lunch on two occasions, and both times had different items. All in the party were very happy with the food prep. The service was very good both times. Definitely recommend.

We live close-by and frequent the Old Bowie Town Grille. The cream of crab soup and the sandwiches are our favorites. There are rotating specials, a separate bar area and it is kid friendly.

OBTG is a neighborhood gem. The food is always top shelf and it reminds you of going into Cheers. Everyone of the management staff knows your name, your food, and your drink. It is truly a fun place to go.

We stopped by for a late dinner on a Friday. The bar was pretty loud and the noise definitely spilled over into the dining room. Our server Kevin was very attentive, but could use a bit of polish. We started with the Cream of Crab soup. It was pretty good. Not as thick as I have had in other places,... More

We've eaten at many of the restaurants in the Bowie area, and consistently return to the Grille. The food's quality is the best around (favorites are the wings, cream of crab soup, and salmon from the Get Fit menu), the staff is friendly and efficient, and the entertainment is always a treat. The owners, Bob and Theresa Thompson, are well-known... More
