T Bonz is a great little place with great ribs. Great selection of beers too. Portion sizes are decent, although they changed their plating and the sides seem smaller. Don't plan on going Wednesday evenings unless you get there early, it's quiz night and packed, we've made that mistake more than... read more

Typical little local restaurant with decent ribs, pit beef, turkey and ham and burgers and an extensive beer selection. They get a big crowd for quiz night on Wednesday so hard to get seated. Nothing fancy and we'll do carryout more often than eating in lately. On busy nights parking can be tough. It's located behind a corner shopping center.... More

I used to really like this place. Went there on Friday night and it was a disaster. All the artwork was gone from the walls and the AC wasn't working. It was about 90 inside. I spoke to the manager and he claimed the AC was on but just not strong. Ridiculous. I specifically asked if they were under new... More

We go to TBonz at least once a month for the beer selection. We'll go for happy hour and just order appetizers as our meal. The food is OK, not great. I've found it to be inconsistent depending on who's cooking that night. Some days we'll get a huge pile of nachos, other days the nachos will be a small... More

Will start with the positive points: The server was friendly, promptly arrived with menus and returned with a children's menu when she saw that we had a child with us. The dining area was not crowded and our food arrived in about 10 minutes from the time that we places the order. Everything arrived as ordered and described with no... More

Basically, this is bar food pushed to a very high level. We ate there on half priced appetizer day, and we were lucky that we chose that day. I had the chicken nachos and thought that I could share some with my husband. Well, I could have shared with a very hungry group of men! The cheese and chicken were... More

Been here a few times when visiting. Great selection of beers and has had live music every time I've been. Burgers are great and there's even tots instead of fries as an option. Great atmosphere and I'll come back soon!

Not much to look at from the outside, but the food is great and they have a large beer list. The staff is really friendly, and the prices reasonable for Howard County. The specials are good as well. I enjoy coming here about once a month with the family.

Did not eat at T Bonz only had a few of their great beer selections. The bar is a great hang-out for locals but everyone is included. This place is just a great stop by for a few with friends. I am sure the food is great because the tables were all full of what looked like happy customers.

Great craft beers, awesome wings, and great staff. Chris (the best bartender ever) is seriously one of the main reasons we frequent this bar. He knows are names, knows what we want, and truly goes above and beyond. If you live in Ellicott City, like craft beers and great wings, and haven't been here yet, you're seriously missing out.
