my friends raved about the md crab soup so i went in. the decor really adds ambiance and i really enjoyed it. we had a great waitress(i think her name was erica), she never let our glasses get empty. they served tasty bread immediately, not sure if it was sourdough or ciabatta. i was so enthralled with the menu, it...

So-so atmosphere. Same hole in floor for years now. Food was very good but not excellent. Had bouillabaisse. Fish and shellfish were fresh and properly cooked. Sauce was bland. Vanilla cake desert with amaretto and raspberries was good but not excellent. Wife had excellent sandwich with shrimp, crab, and crispy bacon.

We went to this restaurant on a date night and had a pleasant time. The atmosphere is kind of a twist between casual and elegant where you feel ok wearing jeans, but you are in a nicer place. The food was good. I had scallops in the bacon cheddar grits and my boyfriend had the steak and lobster tail. The... More

First time here and very pleased. A bit pricey but very good. We used a groupon which made it a little more affordable. We were a little worried about the groupon after reading a negative review on tripadvisor, but our waiter, Tom, mentioned to us immed. that if we had a groupon the only stipulation was one person had to...

Fried oysters are top notch this time of year. Crab cakes are well prepared and for libation just walk across the street at the local store for a couple wines. Great atmosphere and bay window booths onto Main Street. Deserts look amazing but never get that far.

We had a very nice dinner at Catonsville Gourmet recently, but do not like their wait-list process. We called ahead for a 30 minute wait and it was more like 60 to 70 minutes. The process is confusing to first-timers and we were not really certain where we were on the list. Brunch was not as tasty, but the wait... More

It had been four years since I'd visited this venue on the edge of " The Village" section of Catonsville. I'd heard it had undergone a change of ownership. It had always been excellent, now it was even beyond that. We both had the "Flounder San Martin." It proved incredibly delicious, done to perfection , with asparagus and sliced baked... More

After trying and failing to get soft crabs the last time we visited, I'm happy to report that we were finally able to indulge in a Maryland summer classic. I don't think you can find a better soft crab anywhere. The tempura batter is thin and crisp as it should be. It sets off the soft crabs just perfectly. The... More
