Cheese tray is quite large and they don't skimp on the cheese or bread. I like how they don't serve the same beer twice once the tap runs out. Every time we go in there are new beers and great cocktails. We love the little shop also with specialty foods!

Really enjoyed a quick stop here for a bite to eat. The menu is definitely limited, but the food was delicious. The tavern has a good casual vibe. Window table seating is a must for a good view of Main St. There were a few small tables on the sidewalk as well as some bar seats inside. Very pleasant wait staff!

MT has moved to a new location on main street. The layout is perfect for both the tavern and market. It's better than ever and it was great to begin with. The food choices are unique and delicious. The beer selection is very good and covers a lot of ground, especially for a place of it's size. A lot of thought has gone into making this a must try and worth the trip to charming Sykesville, MD. Parking is very convenient throughout the town to MT.

Every time I'm in town, I make it a point to stop here. Their tapas are outstanding, the wine is top notch (with a great selection to choose from) and the atmosphere is festive. They even have mixed drinks now.

The folks who work here clearly enjoy what they're doing and this makes the service outstanding and friendly. This is one of the best places around for good drinks and food. They also have an area that sells homemade chocolates, cheeses, snacks and wine. Love, love, love this place!!

Stopped in for some wine during the ice fest. It was very busy but we got served right away. Our party was lucky enough to get seating and sat there until we were ready to leave. MT is moving to a larger new location down the street about February 11. My only (minor) complaint is them charging $25 for a $14 bottle of wine that they just took off the sales shelf. At least take the price off the bottle before setting it on the table. While MT does serve food, it's more sandwiches.

Hey! Thanks for the note. Sorry for the miscommunication on the wine. As you know, we are a market and a tavern - and for the most part our bottled wine sales are to-go. So, the listed price on the bottles is the "to-go" price. If a customer wants to dine-in with a bottle, there is a $10 corkage; which is where your price came from.

That said, it should have been communicated to you and then you could have decided whether or not you wanted the bottle with corkage. Again, sorry about that - I spoke with the staff.

Despite the fact that we are small and specialty, we try to hard to remain competitive with large retailers on our to-go prices and with restaurants on our dine-in bottle prices. I think you'd find that even with a corkage our prices are much less then a bottle ordered at a standard restaurant.

Best Regards, Pete
