I joined a fairly large group for dinner on Friday night. They were busy and crowded but they slipped us in quickly and smoothly. Great beer, great food, great service. I don't know how long they've been here, but it feels like it pre-dates the gargantuan development that the area has recently undergone. We weren't locals, but it looked like... More

We knew they did a great job on draft beer selections, but had no idea that the food was so good or so reasonable. Six adults for dinner on a Sunday night. Dishes included pork shank confit, a roast veggie mac and cheese, blackened salmon, a tenderloin dish with chantarelles, and two really exquisite salads, one with salmon. Every dish... More

The restaurant does not take reservations. It looks like a little brick shack from the highway (Rt 355) and there is almost no parking. Inside is a surprise! Lots of local and micro-brews on tap. The menu is more than the pedestrian sandwiches and burgers. No french fries are to be found! I have been to the restaurant 2 or... More

We just tried this place for the first time without knowing a thing about it. I had bought a certificate awhile back on restaurant.com when I was just looking to try someplace new and they had a sale on the certificates. Figured why not try it. Finally went the other day and we were really pleasantly surprised. The place was... More

I've been here 3 times now. The food is very good - can't go wrong. And they have a very good selection of great beers.

This was my husband and I's first trip. Our server, which I believe was owner/manager was Excellent. He had great recommendations for both beer and food. My husband said their Roasthouse Burger was the best he ever had. I had the French Dip, very good. I love they offer different sides then just chips or fries. I have zero complaints... More

We (6 of us) ate here early on a Saturday night while traveling. I'm guessing that 40 years ago this was a roadhouse; the building is old and comes right up to the 4 lane highway. Inside is a friendly down-home kind of pub environment. We were greeted and seated quickly. It took some time to make it through the... More

First of all...our server was great - enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the menu. We did have to wait a while here and there because he was the only one there, but eventually another server showed up. You'll need to have an hour or two when coming here. It has a laid back attitude. Plenty of craft brews on tap.... More

Duck pastrami and Brie was phenomenal; delicious accompaniments. Tasty baked wings and wild boar frittata special that should be a staple on the menu. Huge donut bread pudding.. surprisingly light and so worth 5 bucks. Amazing beer and liquor selections. Super friendly staff, Will be back ASAP!!

The experience was one enjoyed by all. I ended up swapping out one of my restaurant.com certificates for this establishment after finding out we were headed out to spend weekend at family hunting retreat in Western Maryland for opening day of shotgun season - my early Christmas present :) This place was exceptional. The choices of craft beers was superior... More
