This restaurant is closed as of January 2017. Drove by this place en route to our favorite area barbeque place and the restaurant was shuttered with a for rent sign in the main window. A shame as several years ago this was a nice place to go for a few drinks and some low key, non-fast food eats.

You have thought I would have learned my lesson a couple of years ago, but apparently I didn't. I went to this particular Bill Batemans with my husband and a friend. When we walked in there was no one there to greet us. Someone from the bar came out and seated us. After waiting several minutes our waitress finally came... More

The draft beer was on the warm side. Draft beer is basic. Keep it at temperature. I worked the food service industry and have seen terrible things. Warm beer is my window into the soul of a bar as well as the kitchen. If the beer can't be served at the correct temp, I worry how the kitchen is being... More

My husband and I went there one day for lunch! I got a crab cake, which was awesome. Hubby got hot wings and really enjoyed them.

Our 1st restaurant choice on a Saturday night was so crowded we decided not to wait. We saw the Bill Bateman's sign and having been about 15 years since our last trip to a Bateman's we decided to give this Glen Burnie location a try.Probably never again. We walked in and saw the restaurant about 50% full and thought we... More

Since I have been up until very recently playing trivia games here on a weekly basis, I have eaten here dozens of times. There are really only a handful of items on the menu that I order. Most new things I try are not worth ordering again. The crab cake, the Maryland crab soup, and the chili are pretty good.... More

We have lived in the area for almost 2 years. The appearance of the place from the outside really does not, at least to me, look like a restaurant. However that being said the inside was a pleasant surprise. It was kind of like a hard rock cafe and the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants blended together. Overall the meal (crab... More

Had drinks and apps there - chicken wings - pretty good - I had the spicy ones. Would definitely go back to try more. Atmosphere is typical sportsbar, but comfortable.
