4 Seasons Grille

4seasgrill

  I had seen this restaurant from the outside but had not heard a lot about it so I never really had any interest in it until I was given a gift certificate and even then it took us months to get there. It was surprisingly nice inside, not uncomfortably nice but clean and spacious with decent decor. The kids ... Read More »

Ann’s Dari Creme

anns-1

 Ann’s Dari Creme 7918 Ritchie Hwy Glen Burnie, MD 21061 (410) 761-1231 It was a perfect day to have lunch outside so I stopped by one of my all time favorite lunch spots, Ann’s, for a footlong. Although they have come into the digital age with a brand new sign it is still the mom and pop location I always ... Read More »

Atlanta Bread

atbread1

  Grabbed a afternoon lunch at Atlanta Bread which was here for a few years gone for a few months, then returned. Today was a perfect day for an outdoor lunch which is one reason why I chose Atlanta Bread. Another is that I had only been here a couple times before. I was surprised to see there was no line, ... Read More »

Attman’s Deli

attmans-deli-1

  It is very unusual for me to do a review that is more than a 15 minute drive from Severna Park but I am compelled to give accolades to Attman’s Deli which has had a location in Baltimore since 1915 and a new location in Potomac which is where I happened to be at lunch time. I drove by ... Read More »

Beefalo Bob’s Sports Bar

beefbob1

  Tonight, we went to Beefalo Bob’s Sports Bar and Grille located at 8015 Fort Smallwood Road, Pasadena, MD 21122. We arrived before 5pm and had immediate seating (seat yourself). You walk directly into the bar and there are 6 regular tables and about 12 bistro style tables and ample bar seating. Our server, Jamie, was bright, energetic and very ... Read More »

Big Fish Grille

bigfish3

  I have been to Big Fish Grille a few times but it had been a couple of years so when the chance to get a $40 coupon for $20 on living social I jumped at the chance because I remember how good of a happy hour deal they had with all appetizers half price. We rolled in about 6pm ... Read More »

Boston Market

boston2

&bnsp; They have a combo that is almost impossible to say no to when they ask ” would you like the ribs and chicken cobo with two sides?” Ummm yeah! So I did with macaroni and cheese and creamed spinach as my sides. I also got cornbread which I honestly think gets thrown away 75% of the time. They have ... Read More »

Brian Boru

boru-1

  I had been wanting to stop by and review Boru’s for awhile but had not had the chance. It is on Rt. 2 but doesn’t really stand out as you pass by. The last time I went there I remember it having a strange layout and very closed off which made it loud. I was pleasantly surprised to see ... Read More »

Cafe Normandie

cafn1

  I have eaten here a couple of times and both times the food was absolutely phenomenal. You can actually see the look of satisfaction on people’s faces as they take their first bite. I arrived at about noon and there were plenty of tables available. Apparently at night you will most likely need a reservation. They have a bunch ... Read More »

Capri Pizza

cappizza1

  At one time or another you will find yourself on hospital drive and hungry. Capri Pizza is a small, downright out of the Bronx Italian eatery complete with the loud,to the point owner (which I like by the way.) She came to each table and asked everyone there ( in her New Yawk accent) what she could do to ... Read More »

Cheeseburger in Paradise

cheeseb-1

  I was meeting someone for a business meeting and CIP seemed like a logical place to meet. I arrived a few minutes til 11am and they had not yet opened. I checked the door again right at 11 and they were ready to go. We took a table on what is called the patio.(In the summer they open the ... Read More »

Chris’ Restaurant

chris1

  Exceeded my expectations! I went in for an early lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The reason I had never been here is because I was not impressed with Diego’s that was in it’s place years ago.There were only two other customers when we arrived and one of them came over and started a conversation because my food looked so ... Read More »

Coal Fire

coal-1

  I was heading to the Movies at Waugh Chapel and my stomach was scratching my back so I stopped at Coal Fire for a quick bite. There specialty was Pizza but I was not feeling it,so I ordered a cheese steak sub. The waiter was nice while taking my order and bringing my tea. Although someone in the back ... Read More »

Crabtowne USA

ct-5

  With the Orioles down 7-1 in the 5th we decided to head home. On the way home we had a great idea. Crabs! It was just me and the youngin so I figured he would enjoy Crabtowne USA since they have an arcade. It was about 3pm and there were only a few tables full. The size of crabs ... Read More »

Donut Shack

dshack1

  I am not a fan of donuts and probably had not had one in over 10 years but was asked to check out D shack. The awesome thing was it was exactly the same as it was last time I was there. I even think some of the same people were there reading the sports section of the Sun. ... Read More »

Elevation Burger

eleburger-1

  Anything with the word “burger” in it is worth a try. Parking in front is almost impossible so you will need to park in back and walk around (why they don’t have another door that faces the parking lot,who knows?) The place is new so it is clean. I missed the lunch rush so the line was short. The ... Read More »

Elks Lodge of Severna Park

elks-2

  I never realized what great deals were to be had at the Elks Club in Severna Park. They have Friday Night Dinners and I will get the specifics when I can. You do not need to be a member to attend.This is a great place for a inexpensive family dinner and goes to a good cause. The Elks are ... Read More »

Ellie’s Place/Wings to Go

ellie1

  In the mood for wings so we stopped by “Ellie’s Place”, formally “The Pub” on Veterans Highway. Skipping breakfast we arrived early at about 11:20 and found out they do not open until 11:30 so we waited until someone opened the doors a little past 11:30. We were told to grab any seat we want. I am not sure ... Read More »

Fifer’s Seafood

fife1

  I stopped into Fifer’s Seafood because it was recommended to me for their crabs. I was in for lunch so I got a crab cake instead. There was a party of about 20 that required most of their attention. We were taken care of and the server was very nice but they were a little on the slow side ... Read More »

Five Guys Burgers and Fries

5guys2

  Five Guys Burgers and Fries should add hot dogs in the name because they have some of the best tasting dogs in town. Although $4.50 for a bacon cheese dog is a bit high if you want a good dog you should splurge once in awhile. You can also get hand cut fries and a small is enough for ... Read More »

Founders Tavern and Grille

founders5

  Word of mouth led me to the new restaurant “Founders” in Pasadena where “The Canopy” and ” Jumpers Grille ” once occupied. The new Grille has been completely gutted and renovated and is far superior to the former businesses. They have made the entire place much more open and welcoming than the tight, cut up, pieced together take-out,restaurant,bar that ... Read More »

Garrys Grill

garys-1

  Sunday morning breakfast is the best. I had a Groupon for Garry’s Grill so that pretty much made my decision on where to go, however smart people would read the coupon before ordering. It was only good for dinner but at that point I was stuck so I decided just to suck it up and enjoy it. We arrived ... Read More »

Gina’s Cantina

gina1

  Gina’s has always been an every now and then brunch spot, not because it wasn’t great but brunch just doesn’t happen all the time. They have a excellent brunch menu and I have never had anything there that I disliked. It was nice to show up and the place not be packed. We had a party of 11 and ... Read More »

Grump’s Cafe

grumps1

  A little drive to Bay Ridge is worth it for a very different small town,laid bay cafe. It has signs in the bathroom such as “Pay Toilet, Drop dime in toilet and flush.” The waitresses also use their pajamas as their uniforms. They offer a full bar and serve breakfast menu all day. The first time I went in ... Read More »

Hella’s

hellas2

  I went to lunch to check out the crabcakes and was not disappointed. Two giant crabcakes with hardly any filler. These are some of the best in the area similar to Romano’s, Timbuktu, and G&M. This was enough for me and my son to split and we were both full and satisfied. That is until it was time to ... Read More »

Honey Bee Diner

honeybee-1

  25 years ago I was a night owl and there was nowhere to eat late at night except for Denny’s and Honey Bee unless I stayed awake until 5am when The Breakfast Shoppe opened. I usually ended up at the Honey Bee because of the food and service around 2 or 3am. I have only been there a handful ... Read More »

Houlihan’s

houli-1

  I was in the Waugh Chapel Shopping Center and was going to hit up Red Robin for lunch. Yuuuummmmm. At the last minute I changed my mind and went to Houlihan’s and had mixed feelings about the whole thing. It started out good enough, a little before 1 pm and only about 10 customers which usually means fantastic service. ... Read More »

House of Hunan II

hunan-1

  I have probably driven by here many times without giving this place a second thought. Not being in the mood for Subway or Pizza Hut and not having the time for Broadneck Grill (which I love) we decided to check out the takeout/restaurant Chinese place for lunch. It was noon and there was only one other table of people ... Read More »

Jeno’s Steaks

jenos1

  Cheesesteaks are my all time favorite lunch sandwich and Jenos has been a favorite of mine since the first time I went. The walls are plastered with local sports pictures and memorabilia and the staff is always friendly. I see the same people there over the years and Rudy (found his name out today) always makes time to strike ... Read More »

Johnny’s Family restaurant

johnny3

&bnsp; When you head down mountain road in Pasadena it is one business after the other. Everything from car dealerships to ice cream parlors, restaurants and bars. A nice little restaurant on the corners called Johnny’s Family restaurant. When You enter it has the feel of a restaurant on a long stretch of highway with nothing around. Everyone knows everyone ... Read More »

Libations-Modern American Tavern

lib-1

  By request I checked out the new “tavern” on Veterans highway for lunch. When entering the lobby area it was not what I expected. This did not seem like a tavern at all. I felt like I was entering a hotel which you would never guess from the outside. Everything was very upscale and nicely done even the bathrooms ... Read More »

Life Pho

lpho1

  It had been years since I had Vietnamese food and since Mi Pueblo II does not open until the 21st we decided to check out the new restaurant Life Pho that opened in the beginning of July. As far as restaurants go it is fairly small but plenty of room for the dinner crowd they had.(9 of the 12 ... Read More »

Lures

lures-1

  I never had any reason to go to Crownsville until recently which is why I had only been to Lures once before. I passed by it around lunch time and made a U turn to grab a sammie. It seemed very busy for lunch as the parking lot was pretty full. In the few times I have driven by ... Read More »

McDonald’s

mcds3

  I very rarely go to McDonalds but had a weird craving for a filet o fish so I stopped by the McDonalds I had been going to since they opened in 1976. It was very disappointing to see a local business operating this way even if it is a fast food place. We went in around 11:30 and there ... Read More »

Mexican Cafe

mexcafe2

  Located across from the Navy stadium, Mexican Cafe replaces Northwoods, one of my favorite local restaurants. With another great Groupon deal I had in my repertoire we headed back to Annapolis for a taste of Mexican delight. If you are on Groupon you cannot beat the deal. For $20 you get $40 worth of food. We arrived around 7pm ... Read More »

Mi Pueblo

mp-1

  I was stuck in Glen Burnie while my car was being worked on so I walked to the bank then to Mi Pueblo for a lunch fiesta. I love the one in SP but had never been to the original. I thought it was great and liked it even better than the one in SP. Same food, same price ... Read More »

Mi Pueblo II

pueblo-1

  There are no words to decribe how excited I was to have this place open after the incredible feedback I had gotten from the Glen Burnie location. After much anticipation and continued delays on the opening it was finally here. I had the genuis idea to go to a new restaurant on a Friday night. When I arrived there ... Read More »

Mother’s Peninsula Grill

mothers2

  After asking on this page about a good place for breakfast in Arnold and driving around around a half hour with no luck and breakfast hours gone I ended up at Mother’s right at 11am. I did get a lot of feedback for breakfast and although I love The Breakfast Shoppe and Garry’s Grill, I was specifically looking for ... Read More »

Mr. Rob’s Snowballs

snball1

  If you have kids and live in Severna Park you know Mr. Rob. Serving snowballs in the area since his college days over 30 years ago, Mr. Rob is the epitome of a small, local business. Sure he sells snowballs and candy which all the kids love but the kids don’t say “the snowball guy is here”, they scream ... Read More »

Nando’s Peri-Peri

nando-1

  I had never heard of Nando’s before I saw them on Groupon but I was going to Waugh Chapel anyway so I took a shot. Arriving right around 6pm we missed the dinner rush by about 15 minutes. You go in and are seated with menus, when you are ready you go to one of the registers and give ... Read More »

Noodles & Company

noodco1

  After hearing mixed opinions on Noodles I was a little reluctant to try it out so soon after opening but having been to a few other locations I figured how bad could it be? Being a franchise they all have the same menu, however, the seating area in SP was the smallest of the locations I have visited. We ... Read More »

Outback Steakhouse

outback2

  I would love to see Outback move into the SP area (Replace Bateman’s) but for now I will have to settle for a short trip to Glen Burnie or Annapolis. I had not been to Outback Annapolis in a few years and they must have new management because someone grew a brain. They have added tables outside and got ... Read More »

Pat’s Select Pizza Grill

pats1

  Grabbing a coupon from the paper we went to grab a bite from a new pizza place I had not heard much about. Pat’s Select Pizza is on Ritchie Highway but you can also get in from the back from Jumpers so the location is great,however the parking lot was packed. We walked in and there were three girls ... Read More »

PF Changs

changs-1

  I passed by PF Changs on my way to an appointment and had it on my mind for an hour so I decided to stop on my way back. Usually I need to park in the garage but in the middle of lunch hour I was able to park in the small lot behind the restaurant. When they first ... Read More »

Rams Head Roadhouse

RHRH-Menu-Cover-2012

  Riding down Generals Highway with my boss and decided to buy him lunch since he buys for me almost every day. We almost passed right by but at the last second told him to turn in. I had only been here once before a long time ago and remember having a pretty decent cheesesteak. A modest lunch crowd when ... Read More »

Romilo’s

romilos1

  I have visited Romilo’s several times over the years and have never had a problem with the food but never had anything so good I remembered it and wanted to return. Nothing was different this time. Seemed very average. I waited about 10 minutes for someone to take our order I ordered the drinks and meal at the same ... Read More »

Safeway at Benfield Deli

safewaydeli

  I have grabbed a sandwich from this deli 8-10 times and although I have never received my food in under 3 minutes (which supposedly makes it free) it was never as bad as this time. It took me 15 minutes to get my sandwich and there was no one else in line. Unfortunately there was one elderly lady working ... Read More »

Severna Park Taphouse

sptap4

  Earleigh Heights Tavern, Snyder’s of Severna Park, Rodz and Rydz ( jeez), and finally Severna Park Taphouse. I have been to them all and until recently was a dive that most Severna Park residents would not frequent. I would say 80% of customers came from other towns. This has all changed because of the complete changeover in ownership,environment, food, ... Read More »

Simple Sands Deli

simp-1

  Had Simple Sands subs delivered to my pool today and was pleased once again. The sandwiches were delivered within a half an hour and once again were ridiculously good. Don’t miss this place you will regret it. Right past the rt 10 exit on rt 2 next to the lowest price gas place. 10/10 for sandwiches. I have not ... Read More »

Sofi’s Crepes

sofi-5

  I had never had a Crepe (really thin pancake) before today. Not a big fan of pancakes I was pleasantly surprised that it tasted very little like a pancake but more of a sandwich with really good,soft,fresh bread. I ordered ” The Godfather” just because it sounded cool and the “Kevin Bacon” had salad dressing on it which was ... Read More »

Sonic

sonic-2

  This is one fast food place I wish we had in the Park. This is like having 25 drive thrus available at all times. I was in a hurry and only had about 10 minutes to eat so it had to be fast food. Although Chic Fil A is usually my go to spot I figured something different was ... Read More »

Squisito

sqiz1

  We all know Squisitos has phenomenal pizza but I had a different mission today. I had a cheese steak craving, so taking the advice of a friend I tried Squisitos in Odenton. The building had been redone so it looks a lot nicer then it used to. The service was okay and the cheese steak was very good (not ... Read More »

Sunset Restaurant

sunset3

  Due to an online poll of looking for the ultimate local cream of crab soup I was led to Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie which I had been to many times but not in a few years due to an over cooked filet mignon I had gotten the last time. I had guessed that staff or management changed and ... Read More »

Szechuan Inn-REOPENED

sezch1

  I will be the first to admit I have a hard time telling the difference in Chinese food from place to place but I do know a good deal when I get one. For lunch there is about 20 different meals to choose from for $7.50. This includes chips,soup,spring roll,fried rice and meal. Sommai is always very nice and ... Read More »

The Big Owl

bigowl-4

  It is a rare treat when I am able to get to the Eastern Shore for a day out. A beautiful 78 degree day on the deck overlooking the Narrows is just what I needed. We drove over to The Big Owl around 2:45 and it was already packed with people sitting back and enjoying the ambiance. They had ... Read More »

The Big Pig- CLOSED

pig1

  Dropped by for a quick lunch around noon out of curiosity. The parking lot was empty (luckily because there is hardly any parking.) I was the only customer and there was one guy working behind the counter. He was friendly enough but I could tell he did not want to be there. I ordered the beef brisket, cole slaw, ... Read More »

The Breakfast Shoppe

bshoppe1

  If you have lived in the area for any amount of time you have heard about The Breakfast Shoppe. One of the few very good places to get a good breakfast in Severna Park. I was seated immediately, however, do not count on this on weekends. There will be a wait. I was waited on by Kimmie and she ... Read More »

The Grill at Quarterfield Station

grill1

  In 2002 Severna Park resident Bill Chalmers took his 20+ years of experience in the restaurant industry as the regional manager at The Chart House to open his own place. I had heard people mention “The Grill” from time to time but never made it there until today. I rarely eat breakfast during the week so this was a ... Read More »

The Point Crabhouse and Grill

point1

  What a perfect day for lunch outside on the water! I had been to Magothy seafood many times before just because I love the water but was never impressed with the service or the food. What an upgrade! The place has been fixed up,tables added,new deck on the outside,better service,better food and a nice experience. Arrived at 11:30ish and ... Read More »

The Szechuan Inn (new owners)

si-1

  Interested in how much the new owners had done to change the Szechuan Inn, I stopped in for a lunch meeting. The tranformation was amazing. If you were blindfolded and went in you would never realize this was the same place. Everything brand new including fish tanks and sushi bars. It is all much more open and inviting. We ... Read More »

Zandi’s Grill

zandis-1

  Tucked away in the back of a small business building on Veterans Highway is the hidden gem “Zandi’s Grill”. This small but comfortable restaurant had a complete makeover by the Food Network’s “Restaurant impossible”. The episode can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFvj2kSm_bE I had been there before the change and what a difference! I arrived around 11:45am so I missed ... Read More »
