Absolutely, one of the most
Absolutely, one of the most consistently excellent dining experiences in greater Baltimore. Food preparation, presentation, service and atmosphere spot on. Each person in our party ordered a different entre; crab cakes,steak, pork cop, sea bass. Every one was outstanding. If you want a great meal and lovely dining experience in an atmosphere that is charmingly rustic and unpretentious, give Mountain Branch a try.

Another fine dining experience
Another fine dining experience was had by Mountain Branch.Price Fixe menu was a great value. The sword fish had a good flavor and was cooked well. The shrimp bisque was rich and tasty. The bread pudding was a generous portion and had exceptional flavor. Chase was our server and performed adequate and reliable service.

I thought the food was very good and appropriately priced. Server was sub par. Was not very familiar with the menu and had to read us the specials. She was not organized and it took too much time getting drinks. We did not get our water until half way through the meal.

Must Go To!
This is by far my favorite place in Baltimore County to go to. The bar has an awesome lunch menu and the dinner menu at the restaurant is by far one of the best I've seen. Never had a bad meal here.

Something for everyone
The menu covers a great variety so there is something for everyone. We all happened to order a fish entree and everything was delicious, Service was a little slow but we didn't mind because the view is lovely and the dining room is pleasant.

Mountain Branch Inn Brunch
We have been there before but first time for brunch. There were a lot of options for breakfast and or lunch. The food was good and hot. Service was not as usual, coffee was not refilled or were we told that for a few more dollars you could have unlimited mimosas or bloody Mary's.

Great Patio Dining
The Mountain Branch Grille & Pub is affiliated with a golf course. The patio dining overlooks the golf course for a great scenic view. The kitchen creates some memorable dishes for specials and there are some standard menu items that are great choices e.g. the Fried Oysters are not to be missed. On Wednesday the restaurant has 15 wines priced at $15 per bottle. While these are not great wines at this prie, I usually find a real gem for what is effectively retail price. Dress is casual so you can have fine dining (or pub fare if you prefer) without having to dress up.

THE DINING ROOM I FOUND TO
THE DINING ROOM I FOUND TO BE VERY NOISEY. NOT MUCH ROOM BETWEEN TABLES.COULD HEAR EVERY ONES CONVERSATION. IT WAS A FRIDAY NIGHT AND VERY BUSY. THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY INTO THE TOP DINING ROOM SO VERY BUSY WITH WAITERS AND BUS BOYS MOVING IN AND OUT. VERY DISTRACTING. I AM SURE EATING DOING THE WEEK WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER TIME.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've dined for special events, ate brunch at least 5x and always go back for their great customer service, reasonable prices and great tasting food. Highly recommend for any occasion.
Golf course is just another added convenience to an already greàt venue

Went here for the first time for Sunday brunch after being disappointed at another restaurant. Their selections of food were outstanding, the quality was wonderful and the place beautiful. Our server was a bit slow with any requests we made but at brunch they usually are. We definitely enjoyed it and will be back many times again for brunch. Can't wait to go for another meal.

best brunch around
Mountain Branch is our favorite place to have brunch. The food is great snd plentiful. The service is friendly and efficient. Snd the atmosphere is fun and attractive. We took four friends for their first time and they're already planning a trip back.

We love to sit on the deck at Mountain Branch. The view is gorgeous, the food is great, and it's entirely In the shade on a hot summer night! Their crab dip is one of the best we've had. The burger night on Monday is a great deal, but you do have to eat in the bar for that.

i had a great all around experience i WILL be back

We have always had a great dinner at Mountain Branch, and this was as good as usual. The veal Porterhouse and the pork chop were excellently grilled, and the fried oysters and the calamari were tender and naturally sweet. The service was excellent.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quality food and service in a casual and classy atmosphere. Only complaint is that it was noisy, but it could have been in part because of wedding party at bar and outside. A lightning storm rolled through and it was awesome to watch the bolts from our table through the large windows. Exceptionally good in every way! Highly recommend for any special occasion.

Best Brunch Ever!
You can't go wrong at Mountain Branch - breakfast, lunch or dinner... but they definitely have one of the best brunch buffets we've ever had. We've never been disappointed!

We visited for restaurant week, and that wound up being a great deal.
Beautiful deck, good service, and excellent food.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful experience. The pasta special included large shrimp, scallops and crab and was delightful. The house dressing was bland. We were given two loaves of bread and dipping oil all on one serving plate which we had to pass back and forth down the table. The view was wonderful and will be exceptional in the fall when the leaves turn colors. The bar scene was loud, but there was an Orioles game being broadcasted, so we understood. We will absolutely return to this restaurant again. Worth the drive.

Beautiful day so a great view. Food was tasty and service was on point/

My husband and I took an out-of-state visitor to this restaurant for dinner during Restaurant Week. The food choice was wide and offered wine pairings at a reasonable addition. Food was plentiful (two crab cakes, not just one) and delicious. Service was very good despite it being a busy time. This was a great out-of-downtown choice for a visitor - it was super for my husband and me, also.

Went Away Happy
Our attentive waitress made us feel comfortable. If not for the humid weather, we would have sat outside,but they gave us a great indoor spot where we had a view of the golf course. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced for restaurant week.
Neither of us likes bread pudding, but their's is so different, it was delicious.

Good food, ambiance eh?
Decided on Mountain Branch because of the beautiful views from the patio. Of course, it rained. Looked forward to dining in the big open area but we were seated in a side room with little ambiance. We (all 4 of us) enjoyed our meals. Wait staff was good. Our seating (and the weather) was less than perfect but I guess someone has to sit there.....
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful meal and atmosphere!
A local favorite with great food, service and view.

excellent customer service
Margaret is the best waitress she is right on the mark the food is great we will continue to dine here...
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for any occassion
We've been to Mountain Branch numerous times. We live about 10 minutes away which makes it easy for us to get to, but we'd go anyway. We've never had a bad meal and service is always excellent. We love to sit on the deck in the summer. I've been to several large gatherings here which were handled by the staff very easily.

Always love brunch at Mountain Branch...Love that unlimited Bloody Mary's are now available too!

Accommodating for a large family
I recommend the Mountain Branch Grille & Pub for a large group at brunch. Good food and good service.

The food is consistently good and the service is top notch. They cater to the customer. This is one of my favorite spots.

Another Fine Steak
We go to Mountain Branch whenever I am in the mood and allowed a Great NY Strip Steak.
Good service and a reasonable price.

Came back to Mountain Branch after my recent Restaurant Week experience. My first visit was extraordinary...great service, excellent menu (especially their famous house-made bread pudding) and extensive wine offerings (I recommend the Sangria). My second visit was unbelievably better than the first...outstanding service (our waitress was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and efficient), outstanding menu selections (better than those offered on the Restaurant Week menu) and the still great Sangria. This was the first time I returned to a Restaurant Week participant. I plan on returning often. It's really worth the long drive to Joppa from Catonsville.

22nd Wedding Anniversary
Food was great, did not take long to come out of the kitchen and was reasonably priced.

Love it and Keep Going Back
Go here for a wonderful night out. Pleasant, wonderful service and well prepared food. The wine list has plenty of options at many price points. We did not sit outside this time but look forward to it soon.

We go to Mountain Branch for special occasions. The food is delicious and service is fantastic! We've been going for years and will continue for years to come!

Love the new menu!
The new menu was fantastic! Great casual place to gather with friends, but also classy enough for a business dinner. The food was terrific. And they have good wines at reasonable rates. It made for a great evening!

1000 points not updated?
This is not a review - but I have a concern about how my points were updated though...and, I do not know how to contact someone to address. This restaurant is a 1000 pt -- and only 100 pts were updated on my account. Can you tell me why?
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have taken my parents here last year for the first time and this place is there choice every time I vist them from VA
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. They sat us in an awkward table where our 2 guest would not be able to get to us due to the other table blocking us in. Plus they had the leftover trays right next to our table. Not a good practice for an upscale restaurant. They were very accommodating when we asked to be moved. They put us by the fireplace...much better.
The evening ran us $98.00. But I don't mind paying that when the food and service were excellent...which they were.

Munching at Mountain Branch
This is one of my favs. It has a cozy lodge feel, beautifully laid out in a circular shape, with a wonderful stone fireplace. The entire room overlooks the stunning golf grounds. On top of the ambiance, the food is delicious; lots of yummy things to choose from. The staff are all polite and attentive. I think it's a winner!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
The seafood entrees we enjoyed were prepared well and served in an attractive setting. This includes the scallops and Chilean Sea Bass. Service was excellent including wine service. Excellent pace to the meal which included soup, too. Overall a nice evening, maybe a little more expensive than it has to be but I we were pleased with the evening.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
They have a new menu and akk the entres we had were excellent especially the Veal Chop. Prices are very reasonable too!!
