Visited this sports bar while visiting family. The service was extremely slow and the food disappointing. I had what was supposed to be fish and chips. The tiny pieces of fish were rolled in something that resembled thick dough. Just bloody awful! My family members were equally disappointed except my daughter who had the cowboy burger. I am crossing this... More

Finally finished eating after an hour and half and tried to order two more drinks but after waiting another 10/15 minutes we gave up... More

I like the fact that this restaurant manages being family friendly yet also has a great bar scene. I enjoy the outdoor dining option as this area has few options for outdoor dining. However, the food is just okay. I have never been overly impressed with the menu/food.

Went to watch the game and when they turned on the sound it was crazy loud. Just to give some reference I was out with the owner of music store who hosts live bands. Even he agreed we could never back for games because of the sound level. Food and drinks were good.

We stopped for lunch here on the way through town and were very glad we did. The restaurant looks new -- very clean and offers seating inside, outside or in the spacious bar. The crab soup and the other entrees we had for lunch were very good, and they had a selection of local craft beers.

We dined here later in the evening, and there were only a few tables in the restaurant; so we expected service to be fast. We were wrong. After ordering a Beer, it took 15 minutes for our Waitress to bring in to the table. The food, however, was very good. I had the Tomato-based crab soup, and a crab cake... More

In a nice area just a block off of the main road (301) through that part of MD. Menu has variety but I love a good burger and it jumped out to me, I wasn't disappointed with my choice. Superb and good fries too! There's a lot of 'chain' restaurants around there and while technically this is a chain, it... More
