Picked up crab cakes for a birthday dinner. First time ever purchasing from this restaurant. The crab cakes were very pale and bland. Had a lot of filler. Mashed potatoes were most likely instant and the green beans reminded me of undercooked catered food. Definitely not worth the price. Would not go back.

We loved this place. We went twice during a May 2015 stay in town. The mixed reviews here and elsewhere don't do this establishment justice. The service was outstanding both times! I liked that they were professional and competent - friendly without being overly

Had lunch there. The setting is cool, very historic building as are many buildings in old town sykesville. The food was good, the wait staff above average. A good value for the price paid.

Four of us went for an early dinner and wanted to sit outside for the atmosphere. The best tables were reserved for a large party so my view was a cloudy, stained piece of plastic that blocked the view of the creek. The other sections of plastic were rolled up but our server said that one couldn't be. So much... More

A great evening on a converted train station platform. The friendly staff had a nice selection of wine and beer to offer. Tapas, small plates, and delicious meals covering most palates. The chef pairs the sides with your selections, that enhances the flavors to the max.

What should be great atmosphere is ruined by overly bright lighting. The main dining room is so loud if there was any music playing you couldn't hear it. The outdoor patio is the best place to be if the weather is good. If you have any coupons or Groupons make sure you read all the fine print, they will go... More

Been here many times both with small and large groups. Food is always great: service always very good. Converted train station has interesting décor. Two dining rooms, neither very large. Plus an outdoor dining area. Small bar right at the entrance is a throwback for those with memories of neat local taverns. Menu varies but the filet is always near... More
