We went for brunch on Sunday. Food portions are generous, but not too much. Taste: DELICIOUS!!! Everyone will find something to enjoy, fresh ingredients, friendly service.

Very nice ambience in a small town street in Towson. Good parking which is free after 6 pm and the adjacent parking lot. Just across the street from the County Courts and close to the Library. Just a 5 min stroll from the Towson Mall and a local Hotel. Good selection of hors D' Oeuvres, main courses and specials. A... More

Went here last saturday night because of trip advisor reviews. Was not disappointed. Located about 1 block off york road in the middle of towson this little establishment puts out some great food. We started with the onion soup (soup of the day) which was the only disappointment, too salty and served to cold, the seafood bisque which was rich... More

Hidden gem in Towson. Cozy and romantic, great food, especially the fish choices.Tucked into a quiet side street, great but small bar with excellent cocktails. Reservations needed for the weekend but usually able to get a table without wait on weekdays.

Remarkably, there may be no better place in Towson for lunch. Classy menu. Quality food. Pleasant service. Reasonable prices in context. The parking may be on street or in library parking garage. Try it out.

Enjoyed our meal of French toast and salmon sandwich on a muffin. Takes at least 15-20 minutes from ordering to get food. Order of scrambled eggs too greasy and sent back. Never asked to refill my empty coffee. Good value. Probably should not have brought our young grandchildren but they found enough to eat.

We visited this restaurant with friends on a recent Saturday night. Everyone's meals were very good, but we had difficulty in obtaining a bottle wine that was on the wine list, but no in their wine cellar. We had selected three wines, which were all out of stock and then we asked the waitress to tell us what she had... More

Whenever we are in the area this place is a must. We have eaten lunch here and last night we experienced dinner. It was amazing. The crab cakes are some of the best we've had and the mushroom ravioli was fantastic. Can't wait for our next trip to Towson to tryout more of the menu
