Went to Mountain Branch Grill for a Christmas Eve meal. Reservations for the holidays are required. The menu is limited, but the food was great. Crab dip, crab soup, salmon all were delicious and cooked to perfection. We will being visiting again. Service is slow, but isn't that what drinking wine is for?

My girlfriend and I went today for lunch. What a disappointment – we were seated promptly and then waited longer than anyone should have to be greeted by our server, Cassidy. Not sure if the problem is that she was new and had not been properly trained. She was pleasant enough; but, did not listen. I asked for a taste... More

Your information lets us know that she needs more work to reach the standard we expect. We will share your thoughts with her to help her improve! More

We were looking for a midpoint luncheon stop on our road trip from South Jersey to central Maryland and were delighted to find this gem only 1.5 miles off 95. The view and the food were so enjoyable we came back on our return trip.

Its been a while since we dined at Mountain Branch, but it still attracts the local crowd who doesn't like the cookie cutter chain restaurant. Love walking in on a cold night and smelling the fireplace! Had late night apps and everything was well prepared. We love their Caesar salad which is made fresh, and the Soco shrimp a buttery...

I was looking for a Nice place close to Perry Hall for our special occasion. Very delighted at my choice. I wasn't expecting any cost saving opportunities, but during the week they have a 3 coarse meal for $25 and $15 bottles of wine. We choose both. A very beautiful setting and very good food.

We celebrated a friends birthday here and the menu has changed again. It is very limited and they do not allow menu change requests as it will affect the visual presentation of the dish. Phooey. Also, everything is now A La Carte. When a restaurant gets that much ego that they wont accommodate requests they are out in my book.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, I am sorry you were disappointed. We have not made any major changes to the menu over the last 18 months or so. Except for seasonal changes of course, as all of our items are fresh and never frozen. Our menu is actually more extensive than prior years, with a... More

My husband and I came here for dinner on a Monday night and we practically had the whole dining area to ourselves. I picked this place to dine at because it was fairly close to our hotel in Edgewood. We ordered two red sangrias which were delicious, but not served with fruit like we were told. The warm bread served... More
