    This restaurant was recommended by a couple of people so we thought we would try it out the crab cakes were good and the ribs were certainly done very well but myself and partner each tried the different barbeque sauces that were available and both of us did not care for it. I understand taste is something personal. We both got the stable fried because we thought that they were going to be something special –they weren’t. The beer selections were fair to poor. The service was good.

    I've been living in Columbia for several years, and never knew that the Corner Stable existed. the food was reasonably priced, and portions were appropriate. It was a little louder than I imagined, but that may be due to the fact that we were seated next to a child's birthday party. In the end, I think that we all had fun, and I would go back again.

    Not sure who rated this place the best ribs and crabcakes in Baltimore. Ribs were microwaved and drenched in bland sauce. Crabcake was dry and tasteless. Nothing really had any flavor.

    We had reservations for 11:30 but did not need them. As we sat longer, however, the restaurant did fill up rather quickly. We chose this place for a dad's day treat due to its claim to have the best runs in Baltimore. Now, I'm not a regular rib eater, but, I could see that happening if I frequented this place! The ribs were truly fall off the bone delicious. Best of all, I'm gluten free so the fact that I could partake in the restaurant's specialty was special to me. It's so hard to find good food sometimes when you are limited by allergens. Give the place a try, see for yourself. We certainly enjoyed it!! Oh yeah, and so did dad!

    Eight of us went here for Mother's Day. All 8 ordered the ribs and fries, 4 of us ordered them with the crabcake. We had the warm wonderful corn bread for the table, which was gone in about 2 minutes. The fries were hot and crispy, the ribs were juicy and tender and messy and the crabcakes were big and flavorful. What more could you ask for! Our waitress was always right on time- with the drinks, the food and checking up on us. I can't complain about one thing, it was a perfect meal. And there were many big tables that day so all kinds of things could have gone wrong.

    I am very picky when it comes to restaurants and I could not find a thing to complain about!! Great service and food. The atmosphere was great for either a romantic night out or for girls out for lunch. Very accessible for handicapped. There were both booths and tables. Easy parking and flat access to restaurant. I will be going back.

    Dined on 4/18/2014
    Food was OK, but was really disappointed when 3 of 4 meals were served to our table. The last person sat with no dinner for 20 minutes. As that person ended up eating alone, absolutely no compensation was offered to our table. No one at our table wanted to make a fuss, but I don't think that should have been necessary. After our server apologized for making an error, she should have at least offered a free dessert or something. Overall, between the noise level, food and service, we would not recommend Corner Stable in Columbia.

    We always love the relaxed, comfortable feel of The Corner Stable. Our favorites are the ribs and crab cakes. The ribs literally fall off the bones and the crab cakes are not full of fillers! We've never had an issue with service until this visit......we had to wait a good 10-15 minutes before our server took our drink order, when he came back with the drinks he put them on the table and was gone! Not even bothering to see if we wanted appetizers etc.. It was at least another 15-20 minutes before he came back to see if we were ready to order anything. Yes, they were a little busy, but I have seen them busier and it had no affect on the service, not sure what the issue was. It took 2 hours from the time we walked in until the time we left.

    Dined on 3/15/2014
    I had never eaten ribs with a fork until Saturday night. The ribs at Corner Stable are so tender that they literally fall off the bone - I am not joking that I ate them with a fork. No messy fingers! The crab cake was huge, though it needs a little extra Old Bay, which was easily requested and provided. The baked potato was also huge - I guess you could say they don't skimp on portions. The only disappointment was the price of the beers - $7 seems a little high for such an establishment. But if you're in the mood for ribs, don't hesitate to go.

    Amazon Local put up the picture of a crab cake and baby back ribs. I've never had crab and ribs same time, but I had to try them both. They were both excellent! Practically no filler in the crab cake and ribs fell off the bone! Oh, I specifically tried the Texas flavor which had a little kick to it! The combo was a tad too much food. So, I'll probably just have one or the other in the future. But, I will go back.

    Very fresh and delicious crab cakes. Beat I've ever had! I asked for extra crispy fries and they turned out to taste a little soggy (how they turn out when you reheat fries in the microwave). The other sides that I tried (coleslaw, mac and cheese) were mediocre. The ribs I tasted were pretty good. Not a huge fan of ribs but from what I can tell it was good. The best part about our night was the fantastic service. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgable of the menu. She made ordering for our picky 18month old easy. She made sure we were taken care of (refilled our glasses, and provided us with extra napkins, and hand wipes without being asked). Sometimes it's the little things that make a huge difference.

    $100 dinner for two served on plastic plates with paper napkins is a little steep. The food was pretty good, the service was a little slow but overall an ok experience. I'm not in a hurry to go back, but I wouldn't avoid the place either. If I were to go back it would probably be just for lunch at the bar...

    Overall, food was good. We ordered sandwiches and an appetizer. I was a little disappointed we made a reservation which didn't seem to matter. We came in a few minutes before our reserved time and were told it would be three minutes. We waited 15 minutes and watched everyone waiting when we came and others who came in after us be seated. So our reservation was not worth anything.
