Blues Jam

I haven't had a bunch of their food, but the Wednesday night Blues Jam is nice. It's had to find live music in he suburbs so this was a good find.

We had their hamburger special, cook just right. It was serve just right. The service was very good and attentive. The beers were cold. Their was a country band playing upstairs. The music was really good and very entertaining. We had a really good time. We are going back for a CD release party the end of February.

Whether it be to have a great meal (steaks and burgers are the best) or happy hour with great apps and cocktails, OBTG is always our favorite!

We go nearly every week or maybe every two weeks. We find the food is good, the servers are friendly, the owners are personable. The food is American. But if you are looking for something substantial and like a good old fashioned cooked home meal, then you will enjoy the Old Bowie Town Grille. They have the best deep friend... More

I have always heard good things so my wife and I decided to try it. They had live music on Friday night so we decided to go upstairs in the bar. We could have stayed in the downstairs, but we wanted to hear the music. The food was very good. Service was really average at best. You have to ask... More

We bought tickets to a live musical performance at The Old Bowie Town Grill. We were seated and ordered a bottle of wine. The owner came by our table to say they didn't have the wine we ordered but she suggested another one that was perfect. The staff was very friendly and the food was good. We enjoyed our evening...

You can't please all the people all the time, but Old Town Bowie Grill ALWAYS pleases us. We eat there the night (somewhat chaotic) the Grill opened, and we probably eat there at least 4 times a month if not more often. The Grill offers what I call "comfort food" for my wife & I. Great burgers, steaks, seafood, and... More

The local beer flight sampler was great. Our server was attentive, friendly, and had great recommendations. They have an extensive menu (which does make me nervous with some restaurants), but what we ordered was excellent. The burger was juicy, cooked to my liking, and seasoned well. The fries were hot (I hate cold fries). the only criticism involved our app.... More

Went for business lunch. Service was great but food was just average. Had the crab cake sandwich. Nothing to write home about. Was a bit disappointed as I'd heard food was good.
