The bartenders here are friendly and the wings are awesome. My favorite are the old bay wings. Great happy hour spot and they have cool bands on the weekend.

I went here for only the second time in many years. Other reviews are pretty accurate - it's not fancy but it has a good range of food. The club sandwich was good, not fresh carved turkey but few are. The Rubin was solidly good as well. Two sandwiches and iced tea was $25 which is not a bad price.... More

We are visiting family in the area. This restaurant is always on our itinerary while here, and the local family are regulars. The food is fresh, creative and reasonably priced. There is a full bar as well and weekend music. My husband had the triple shrimp plate. Blackened, grilled and tempura shrimp filled a huge platter with 2 sides for... More

Basically located on Muncaster Mill Road near Shady grove road intersection. In a little shopping center near the Post Office. Good local place, separate bar area with plenty of tvs and keno. Better than average food, on Friday they had fish tacos, I got the chicken taco salad. Really big, fresh salad mix, great chicken and really good shell. I... More

We frequently order carry out....always delicious and ready in a timely manner. Our favorites are the buffalo wings and Dewey Beach shrimp. Dine-in or take-out the food and service is terrific, Parking is not a problem. Bar is separate from dining area, Crowd spans the ages. It's the worth the drive if you don't live in Derwood!

Found out Jack Worthington was playing. We have heard him in OC, MD and were pleased to find out he was playing here. We arrived about 7pm on a Friday and the place was full. We sat in the back which is never my 1st choice. Jack was going on at 7:30 and he noticed us immediately and said hi.... More
