We met friends on a recent Saturday night here for dinner. When we arrived their was music playing on the porch and a fair amount of diners eating outside. We opted for an inside table. Very pleasant hostess and servers were evident throughout. The food was well executed and everyone enjoyed their meals. One of our guests had a double... More

I've visited Towson a number of times but didn't know about this out of the way spot till I read about it on Tripadvisor. It's a great find! The food is very tasty and not overly pretentious. I had the grouper which was their Catch 22 special, and the preparation was great. They have a nice selection of wines by... More

As there's not a wide choice of restaurants in Towson, we decided to give Bread and Circuses a try. We opted for the Special of the day and crab cakes with 2 beers. Raw materials were fresh and tasty, but dishes missed something to justify high prices and small portions. Staff was very helpful and nice and we appreciated textile... More

Bread & Circuses happens to be my go to place during the week and on the weekend. Why you ask? Because of the people. College kids working their butts off implies cheap eats; Bread & Circuses is exactly the opposite. Great and varied food, coupled with refined drinks and a quaint bar, make this the place to gather with your... More

I would like to try other things but it's hard to resist! The shrimp comes with a garlic butter lemon sauce and baguette bread. Also try the Nantucket seafood bisque.This... More

This is one of the few restaurants I continue to frequent. I enjoy seafood, steaks, drinks, good service and a friendly atmosphere, Bread and Circuses has all of the above and very much more. When recommending this restaurant to people, I always say, "there's something for everyone." From a Baltimore Hon to a wine snob, they will find something designed... More

We have recently discovered Bread & Circuses and it has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants. We've been here twice in the past few weeks for dinner and each time the food was outstanding and the service was even better. Would highly recommend!

I recommend this restaurant if you want some great, fresh sandwiches and homemade soup for lunch. The atmosphere is great. Feels like you're in a federal hill row home restaurant- cozy and inviting. Salmon and crab cake club sandwiches were very good and it looked like everyone else was enjoying their meals. It's worth a short trip off the beaten... More
