Nice big busy restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff. I really liked our waiter Dana. Harpoon IPA was satisfactory for being on the east coast. Portions were very generous so come hungry. I had the Fried deep sea scallops and they were very fresh and sweet. No room for dessert probably because of the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer that was big enough... More

Had to visit for one of Maryland's best crab cakes. I also enjoyed my steak as well. The sides weren't that good

My wife and I were driving home from Dunn NC and we were looking for a restaurant near Baltimore off of 95. My wife found Timbuktu and it is number 1 in Hanover so she checked the menu link in TripAdvisor and thought the prices were good for us to do a quick meal in a casual environment. We were... More

Excellent food. I was turned on some years by my wife, who is originally from Maryland. I find myself in the area for business on occasion and I always find time to dine.

This place has huge portions but nothing tastes good. My medium rare steak was cooked almost well done. The crab cakes are massive but mostly filler. Service is just okay, and decor is outdated.

Food was wonderful. Wait staff was helpful, but not overbearing. Have never had a bad meal here (lunch or dinner). Definitely recommend it to all my friends.

We stopped on the way to BWI as we have heard along the way how great the crab cakes are. The decor has a 50s or 60s look and has not been updated. The reason we were there was for the crab cakes. They are certainly large and while there is not a lot of filler you can tell it's... More
