Excellent food without driving in to Baltimore

We live in Clarksville and Howard County has limited choices for fine dining so it is nice to have Baldwins Station about 15 minutes away. The setting is nice, the food is very good though not exceptional and the servers are friendly so I wonder why I do not consider Baldwins Station a true special... read more

I'll preface this review with the knowledge that I have very high expectations when it comes to dining. We left Baltimore and wanted to get a different experience. It's in a cute little town if you're looking for an experience than give them a try. Don't sit outside though when it's hot (although the view is tempting), because that tin... More

The food was very good. The crab cakes were delicious. However the service was terrible. The evening started out great. At first our waiter was very attentive. But after our entrees were served it went down hill. We actually thought our waiter left for the evening. We had to ask the bus boy for a dessert menu and coffee. Once... More

We had a Groupon for the restaurant. I had the Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Chicken Breast ($28). The chicken (one breast) was tasteless; it could have been boiled. The ricotta and spinach stuffing was also tasteless. It came with rice. It was supposed to be scallion rice but I didn't see any scallions. The asparagus was okay; it was grilled... More

We went to Baldwin Station for Sunday dinner. We arrived just after 2 PM, according to the sign out front "brunch" should have been over. But when we asked for the dinner menu we were told the kitchen wasn't set up for dinner yet. So back to the Brunch menu. There was plenty to chose from. But I can only... More

Had a very nice dinner on the porch. I asked for filet and crab cake. Both were great. We had figs, empanadas and scallops as appetizers. All were delicious. Dessert was flourless chocolate cake and special apple crumb ala mode. Both were good but not great

We visited Baldwins for lunch on a Saturday and had a wonderful meal. We started with the mushroom and wild rice soup which was delightful and then had the crab cake sandwiches. Both were excellent. The setting next to the river is so lovely and a train came by during the meal. Very quiet and romantic. I would highly recommend... More

Baldwin's Station is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in quite a while. The train station atmosphere make it so unique as trains go by frequently. Sit on the deck for the full experience. The servers are exceptional and offered suggestions for our dinner and wine which turned out very well. The menu is extensive and everything... More

I especially love eating out on the deck along the Patapsaco River. It is beautiful and peaceful. The food is excellent and they always have a seasonal variety. Downtown Sykesville is also lovely to stroll around after your meal. Very nice setting.

We decided to treat ourselves to dinner at Baldwins Station, not having been there for several months. We walked in and the staff remembered us and greeted us like family. The explained the menu changes since we were there last and gave us our choice of indoor or outdoor seating. We opted for outside. The service is always exceptional and... More
