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

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.

Service The staff here is very friendly and attentive. We were seated immediately and the service was fast. Food The menu has a good variety of food and isn't overwhelming.

We have always had good service here. The food is good to great. I like their burgers. Food is usually a little slow to come. Cozy place much seating. They have lots of beer on tap if that is your thing. I think they are priced a little high but worth it.
