Love the Towson Tavern-the food is fantastic-definitely get their tater-tots with three delicious dipping sauces. Their crab cakes are great!

Lunch prices are great here and you get big portions. The outside seating is really nice in summer and good for parties

Based upon other reviews, we chose this place for a special night out. We spared no expense when ordering. Ceviche, Israeli salad and chicken nachos for appetizers. Nachos were tasty, but ceviche had some kind of tomato base vs citrus and the flavor was just...More
