“Call before you go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

I was visiting a friend in the area on Sunday, May 11, and we went to Gunning's only to find the parking lot empty and the restaurant closed. There was an ominous handwritten sign on the front door saying they were closed owing to "a family situation" and would be closed until further notice. We went up the street to Timbucktoo.

“Lost in Hanover Maryland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Driving from West Virginia to BWI for a 6pm flight we found Gunning's Seafood Restaurant. Stop in for a late lunch at around 2pm. We both order the flounder fish sandwich which was way to big and we could have just split it. The value was great as well as the service and not to mention the French fryers. Being from Boston we can say that the Flounder was really good.

“Best crab cakes, the real deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Our family had lunch here after flying into baltimore airport. This restaurant is a casual family restaurant but the food was fabulous. The crab cakes had a lot of really good crab (not all that breading) and we had fresh green beans and spinach and homemade tasting cream potatoes. The server couldn't have been nicer and our overall experience was outstanding. Yummy, what a great way to start our visit in Maryland.

“Very good food---poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We got to the restaurant a little before it opened. First we were surprised it was closed, because there were so many cars parked up front....we realized that the employees had taken all the front parking spots...very tacky. They did open the doors a little early and we were the first ones in. Despite that service was very slow. Not sure what else our waitress was doing, but focusing on her customers was not it. We ordered the crab pretzel (very good) and we both had the seafood club sandwiches-----they were outstanding. We did not get our full order and had no pickles as described in the menu and our waitress never came back to see how things were going. The bill took forever to get. Basically a great meal spoiled by poor service.
