“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

First, my rating is relative to "burger and beer" places, not all restaurants. We have lived in Baltimore for 15 years and I must have driven by Swallow a thousand times. It is pretty scary looking from the outside and not in a great location. We were pleasantly surprised when we had dinner there the other night. We went for Philly Cheesesteak Night (Thursdays) and found the food very good, the atmosphere warm and pleasant, and the service very attentive. For a reasonably-priced burger-and-beer meal, I highly recommend Swallow at the Hollow.

“Laid Back Hole in the Wall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2011

Here's a long running corner bar in Govanstown. Burgers are good and 1/2 price on Wednesdays (at time of post). A popular local spot for those who want to get away for a few pints. The crowd here is older than the collegetown kids and pretty laid back. Drinks are nice an cheap. Nothing fancy here. It is what it is. Relax.
