    The entire dining experience was very good. We were surprised even though the reviews that we read praised this restaurant. All four of us ordered different entrees and we were all pleased with our choices. The un-potted pot roast was outstanding and I would highly recommend this dish. We will definitely return to this spot if we are in the area again.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Springs Landing and had a great experience. Greated by the bartender and by the owner when we arrived via the bar. Enjoyed a cocktail at the bar before heading to the restaurant - friendly atmosphere. Dinner was phenomenal. Menu has many great options to please any foodie. I cannot compliment Kevan enough on what a fantastic job he does.

    The few Fall menu is here! Tthe Seasonal 144 salad had two types of warm beets, a generous helping, with some fancy greens, half a boiled egg with balsamic vinegar and goat cheese. Delicious! Although we absolutely love the 21 day aged NY strip, my husband got the fresh fish catch (delicious, white, firm, non-fishy) with the fresh, crunchy, roasted vegetables, and I was in food heaven with the Prime Time sandwich - tender, perfectly cooked slices of prime rib with sautéed onions on a garlic dijonaise aioli bun. The soft, not crunchy, duck fat French fries are pure bliss. We missed the dinner rush hour, so Kevan, the creative chef mastermind, was out and about talking to people and making sure everyone was taking care of.

    The food is good for the most part. Some items are over seasoned to the point of being too sweet; namely the pumpkin soup and sweet potatoes. The chicken dish was fair, and did not live up to it's description. The buffalo rib eye was well prepared and was a highlight of the evening. However, I don't understand presenting it on TOP of the mashed potatoes. The mussels were very good, the stroganoff mediocre. Mixed drinks are on the small side and way overpriced; $11.00 for a martini are prices you may expect at Capital Grille or Ruth Chris, not at a neighborhood country restaurant.

    First timers and will be back! Exec chef Kevin met us at the door and seated us - super nice! Great explanations of the specials and drinks were outstanding. Soups were out of this world. I had a pumpkin bisque which was simply amazing. My wife had a seafood chowder that was equally yummy! Bison steak was perfectly cooked and portions were good sized - not too big or small. Saved room for dessert and the creme brulee was excellent. Waitress was excellent - leaving us alone, but not forgotten - coming at just the right times while my wife and I enjoyed our evening celebrating 25 years together. Thanks Springs Landing for making this a special night!

    We really enjoyed our food. The bread with seasonal butters and crab dip was very good, the wedge salad with house made blue cheese was really tasty. The confit tomatoes were the star of the dish. I had the scallops and my husband had the filet special. Both dishes were excellent, well prepared and well seasoned. Everything was flavorful and nothing needed salt not even the vegetables. The creme brule was smooth and creamy and the lava cake mousse was not overly sweet. Overall excellent meal. We will definitely go back. The chef even came out to talk to us several times to make sure we were enjoying our courses. This was a nice personalized experience.

    This place in is a destination point. Stuck between Columbia and Mount Airy on a back road not everyone know this place but they should. The salads are complex layers or delicious and healthy. Never a dull option on their rotating menu. The chef makes visits to your table. Both inside and outside are quaint and pleasant to spend an evening with that special someone or celebrating an event. They have made their menu more inclusive for a "tavern/pub" fare and price, we stick to the fine dining menu from the original Drover's but are excited that we can return for a more casual vibe.

    My 12 oz NY Strip was rare. It was spectacular. The owner quipped he hoped I would not need the steak knife he brought to table. I almost didn't. We had a mocha chocolate ice cream desert which was outstanding. Presentation, flavor and atmosphere were all superb. I highly recommend Springs Landing Fine Country Pub.

    Love Springs Landing. The food is always amazing. Went low-key this time and tried some sandwiches - burger and bacon's rebellion, but topnotch flavors and presentation (Kevin makes his own bacon!). Noelle and Kevin are lovely hosts - always making sure everything is perfect; very friendly. Enjoyed eating outside.

    Our impression of the restaurant was mixed. 2 of the 4 meals were good. One burger seemed to be seasoned well and the other very bland without flavor and overcooked. The roll and fries were soggy. The salads were nice but not described well in the menu. Service was slow on the food and the waitress was constantly filling our waters even when they were full. The place is very nice inside but the food was not the best.

    This is has become my favorite restaurant. The food and service is great. I brought 7 people from my office and every meal was very good. We had a great time. Kevin, the owner and chef came out and gave a great run down of the menu and treated the group as very special guest. If Springs Landing was located anywhere else you could not get a table and the price would be twice as much

    Drover's got a new name - Spring Landing - and a new menu with sandwiches and lighter options in addition to the more gourmet choices. I love the 21 day dry aged rib eye steak - such flavor with a medley of fresh, local vegetables. My husband got the kebob special (selected chicken and steak) and thought they were the best kebobs he has ever had - great flavor, vegetables, and served over quinoa. The appetizers are bigger and better - the beet and watermelon appetizer was large, filling, and delicious for two. Fun flavor and texture combinations. The Shrimp Caprese came with three slices of tomato, fresh mozzarella, basil aioli, and a big, plump shrimp on each. The One Hope Chardonnay is perfect. Service as always was great!

    My wife and I decided to book dinner through Open Table which we have used in the past. We wanted to try something totally new and different. Drover's Grill was the place we selected to try and we're both very happy that we did! Excellent food and Chef Kevan even served our dinner at our table. I highly recommend that you try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed. We'll be back and a neighborhood gem for sure!!!!

    The first impression was that we may have found a diamond in the ruff because they had a nice little deck for outside seating, great bar area, dinning room looked tight. We sat outside on the patio and were immediately assaulted by flies. A simple fan would probably solved that problem. What was even more glaring was the lack of care given to the patio which was overrun with weeds, All the intended foliage was ridiculously overgrown as well. Now to the food. The meat was of exceptional quality and cooked properly but nothing was served hot and they were not busy at all. The oysters rocoffeller room temp., surf and turf room temp with they exception of the crab soufflé which was disgusting with a giant spoiled shrimp on top.

    This is our fourth visit to Drover's and I'm so glad they are surviving. They are not on the beaten path but well worth seeking out. Note though that the menu changes seasonally - which is very good. But you cannot expect to go back months later and get the same great dish you liked earlier - not even the same adult beverage. However, everything the Chef sends out of the kitchen is obviously well thought out, a personal creation and excellent. Portions are just right. The wait staff are very attentive with helpful suggestions.

    On the night we went the dining room was full and they were short staffed which raised the stress level within the wait staff, even with the short staff challenge our service was excellent. Noelle (owner) waited on our table and she was very patient and helpful going over the menu. Both appetizers and salad were very good, (try the grilled hearts of romaine). For the main course we had the fresh fish catch of the day and the surf and turf, both of these dishes were outstanding. I let Noelle know how much we enjoyed the food and she had her husband Kevan the chef come out and meet us to discuss his work. Both are extremely friendly and service oriented. I love supporting local business and this one is worth supporting.

    We ordered the bread with crab dip.....the dip was almost like a soup ~ very runny. My friend ordered the wellness entrée which came out in a large bowl. The entrée looked more like a bowl of soup ~ more broth than substance (clams, shrimp, pasta, crab, etc.). I ordered the chicken, duck and dumplings which was highly recommended by our server. I'm not sure where the chicken was....I think I had two bites of chicken meat and ten bites of chicken bones. The dumplings were so mushy they were more like a lumpy sauce. Our entree's came with fresh veggies which consisted of 6 small pieces. My husband ordered the Baked Alaska for desert ~ it was so frozen he could barely eat it. Very disappointing for the price we paid.

    Was sitting on an airplane looking for a decent meal on our subsequent drive between cities, and Drover's popped up. Unless you live close by, you aren't going to just drive by this place, but you should definitely make the effort to find it. The entire meal was fantastic - artisan breads with crab dip, a fantastic onion soup, a perfectly cooked filet and a grand marnier soaked chocolate cake. Great folks too, it's a somewhat upscale place, but the people are down to earth and happy to explain the menu, joke about life and give it a real "local neighborhood" feel. We will be back.

    Our Friday evening experience at Drovers was perfect! We enjoyed the scenic trip from Hampstead, MD and were delightfully surprised at the reception as well as the quality and presentation of food. One of our party was on a special diet and with help from our waiter the Chef accommodated her every request. After entrees and before dessert (including chocolate martinis) we were serenaded with a special 101 Dalmatian version of Happy Birthday by the chef. The entire evening was memorable and relaxing. The atmosphere and waiter service was second to none. This is a "Diamond in the Rough". Perfect

    Drovers is a homey place. The restaurant was understaffed on the night we visited so service was less than optimal. The staff was very pleasant and apologetic for the delays we encountered. The food was very good and reasonably priced for what we ordered. The restaurant's decor could use an update. The entry way is tight for the restaurant side. We came in and weren't sure which way to go to the restaurant side of the establishment, they also have a bar side. There were lots of cars in the parking lot but the dining room was only about 50% full. Overall we had a nice experience, there is room for improvement.

    This was my third time eating at Drovers and the food was wonderful unfortunately it seemed that they were grossly understaffed. I was glad that our party was in no hurry and [n a way enjoyed the very sparse service. I think that shortly after we arrived that there was only one waitress for the whole dinning room. I hope they are able to fix this staffing problem I. I will certainly return.

    Drovers has been a favorite place of mine for the past 3 years. You can't fine an upscale eatery in the town where your experience from making a reservation, to being greeted, seated and served absolutely the best food is exceptional. This past week I took friends who had not visited there before and they had rave reviews. Meeting the owner/operator/chef who vicits all his customers sealed the deal. They will definitely return, taking their friends and family too.

    This was our second visit to Drovers and it was great again. The five course meal was both Imaginative and beautiful. we started with the appetizer which was a selection of meats and cheeses beautifully displayed. The second course was Lobster Bisque which was very flavorful followed by a leafy salad. The entrees were equally delicious,ampule and beautiful. For the last course we had the Creme Brulee with a mango strawberry sauce, all the while we were being serenaded by a young lady with a beautiful soprano voice accompanied by an acoustic guitar.

    we made the mistake of not realizing that there was a limited menu for Valentines Day. We were not impressed with our choices and did not like the way the food was paired with other. Some of the dishes were tasty and others not good at all. The duck was so salty that it was hard to eat., The "ganache cake" was nothing more than an betty crocker type cake with icing. Was not a fan of the pate and it ruined the flavor of the stuffed pheasant. Maybe our tastes weren't sophisticated enough for this restaurant, so we will definitely not be back.

    We ate here for valentines day. We only go out about once a month so this was supposed to be a real treat. We were very upset and disappointed. We were lead through the very crowded dining room to a table with paper over it and an unlit candle. We found out after we were seated that the menu was price fixe at an outrageous $69/person. We figured that the food must be great to charge this much in this area so we stayed against our better judgement. Most of what we were served was inedible. The appetizer, soup, and salad tasted terrible. We were served the wrong thing twice and had three different servers over the course of dinner. If you like your food to taste good, save yourself the disappointment and go somewhere else.

    This is a good restaurant for that special occasion. Being Valentine's Day the menu, as well as the wine list, was very limited. The food was good and the service as well. They tried to crowd a few to many tables into the restaurant, which made a "Romantic" dinner impossible. The servers worked hard, but were obviously overwhelmed by the crowd. This to the extend that some tables got up and left for not being waited on efficiently. The restaurant definitely deserves another try, when it is a normal day.

    Drover's had a fixed price 5 course menu for Valentine's Day. Most of the selections were very good, but I shouldn't have ordered the seafood entree because the seafood (especially the lobster tail) was not that fresh.

    I found this on OT and figured we would give it a try. the staff was very friendly, offered suggestions for our meal. decent wine list and reasonably priced at ten dollars a glass. the dinning area is small and separate from the bar. there is a small patio that was not being used due to weather. Drinks arrived within 10 minutes, appetizers took a half hour and entree about 45 minutes. crowd was thirty something up to geriatric. decor was dated, seats not so comfortable. seating was crowded but not overwhelmingly so. the Drover is located far from any town so it looked mostly a local crowd. My wife and I had a pleasant evening. check was $120+tip for two. Music was age appropriate and not too loud.
