Food is always delicious even if it is pricey. GO FOR LUNCH! It's more affordable & you can enjoy the view of the stream & trains more. VERY quaint. Very nice inside. Everyone always wants to see the train come by - - yes, it really does come by - - but after 2 or 3 minutes they all do... More

My daughter lives in Maryland-Dad & Mom in California. Our daughter wanted us to experience a restaurant that was very special for my birthday visit. WOW!!!! AMAZING!! I ordered a special 3 course dinner that had a wine pairing with each course. My salad was perfect, my glazed salmon was even more perfect, ending with creme brûlée. This was truly... More

Ephrem Francis Baldwin designed railway stations for the B&O Railroad throughout the Upper South in the XIXth Century. Sadly, many have disappeared over the decades. The one in Sykesville, Maryland has experienced a wonderful make-over into a first-class restaurant. I've visited several times for lunch and the food is always well-prepared and attractive. Service is not great but the surroundings... More

We decided to host my 50th birthday party for family and close friends at Baldwin’s Station. I’ve reviewed Baldwin’s before. Suffice to say, the dinner was cooked perfectly and the birthday cake was fantastic. The process of reserving the room and finding an acceptable menu was simple and straight forward. We did most of the communication via email and the... More

Went here on date night with hubby and restaurant.com certificate. The atmosphere is quaint and intimate. Our service was exceptional, we were attended to constantly. I got a California blend that I thought was just ok and smallish for the price. The beet and goat cheese salad was good but a little oily and lacked flavor. Dinners (short ribs and... More

Located in a converted railway station in quaint, historic Sykesville, Baldwin Station has a lot to offer. A varied menu with local farm to table elements, a young, energetic and helpful wait staff, an interesting venue, good wine list, a fine selection of craft beers, special dinners, entertainment and excellent food are the attractions. It is worth the drive and... More

Beautiful restaurant in a quaint, historic setting. I want to love this restaurant, but sometimes I don't even like it. It just shouldn't take 45 minutes or longer to receive your meal, especially if you're not having any appetizers. If the hostess or server knows there's a large party that hasn't been served and it's a possibility that you will... More

Quaint restaurant right next to a train that enhances, rather than deters, from the excellent dining and specialty beverages.

My Husband booked the Chef's tasting dinner, a 6 course dining experience with paired wines. We had the most romantic date. The restaurant is set in an old train station right on the train tracks overlooking the Patapsco river. The atmosphere is warm and charming. You can sit either inside or outside, as it was a lovely evening, we dined... More

Took my husband there for his birthday. Very disappointed. The hostess took us outside, placed the menus on the table and left. Sat there for about 15 minutes before some guy appears and asks us for our drink order (never introduced himself or who he was). Waited another good 10 minutes before he returns to take our order. In the... More
