My family and I went to Old Line on March 21, 2013 for my birthday dinner. We were a group of 10. They put together a few tables for us and we were sat right away. It was a slow night. Only 3 other tables had people eating at them.
Our server was ok. He introduced himself and said "That's about all I have to say." and did not even tell us about the special that night. Fortunately I had already read what it was on the chalkboard at the entrance. He took our drink orders and when my dad asked what kind of beer they had, he didn't know and they did not have a menu with all of the beers on it, so my dad had to get up and walk over to the entrance where they had all the beers written down.
The drinks came out in a decent amount of time. I had to ask for bread to be brought to our table and it took forever. We did not get checked on often at all.
The menu is small but interesting. Our table ordered the special which was a 10oz NY strip with asparagus and mashed potatoes, steak salads, a burger, mussels, and the steak frites. My sister does not eat meat and ordered the steak salad, minus the steak. She wanted everything the same as the regular steak salad, just no meat. They brought her out a tiny side salad, missing all the ingredients of the actual steak salad. My NY strip was ok. The asparagus and mashed potatoes were cold and blah looking. Everyone who got the steak salad said it needed more steak on it. The mussels were not very flavorful. My mom said the burger was ok.
All in all, it wasn't that great of an experience. For how long the food took to come out, it was not worth it. The place itself is nice and the atmosphere is quaint. This place has major potential. I love the whole bistro in a liquor/wine store concept, they just really need to work on their service and food prep. The menu could be a little bigger as well.
I would maybe give Old Line another try.
