“Old Fashioned Meal”
Reviewed December 7, 2011

Snyder's serves the kind of meal that was prevalent 50 years ago--large quantities of good food without fancy ingredients.
I had the small prime rib which filled my plate and was tasty if fatty. The accompaniments were a non-descript caesar salad, a baked potato, and very good pickled beets.
The wait staff was friendly and service seemed completely adequate.

“Not worth it!”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

Went with a group of 15. From the beginning to the end, this was a disappointment. My steak was the worst I have ever had and one of the folks asked for his steak medium rare...it was so well done that he had to send it back. The service was also poor...the staff does not seem like they care...no enthusiasm...no passion. Would suggest any other place than this one.

“Avoid - better seafood restaurant 1 block away”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

Quaint old restaurant that smells old. Service was extremely slow. Crab cake was marginally acceptable. Broiled shrimp and scallops were like rubber. French fries were barely warm and soggy. Wine serving was kid size. I have to hold my nose on this one.

“avoid”
Reviewed June 12, 2011

Horrible service, mediocre food, dated decor. The last two are not that much of a problem, but wait staff that are so obviously put out by having to take your order is unacceptable. It's even worse when said staff mess up your order and then take another 20 minutes to fix it, while the rest of the table has been served.

“Fantastic Prime Rib - Friendly Service - a bit Nostalgic”
Reviewed March 5, 2011

The desk cleark at a hotel near BWI told us about Snyder's a number of years ago. We were initiailly surprised by the decor which looks like its from the 60s. Breadsticks are served with a wine cheese spread unique to Snyder's. The food was outstanding and the wait staff made us feel right at home. We go back several times a year since then for the fantastic prime rib. Its a high quality piece of beef cooked just right. Its so big that we split it and still take enough home for another meal. They pride themselves on the crab cakes as well which are excellent as are the sides.

We wish all restaurants had food of this quality.

A great place to take the family, especially your parents!
