Still one of the best crab cakes in the Maryland area. Ribs are also great! I would highly recommend.

The Corner Stable is a great example of a neighborhood gem. It has a fun ambiance, the servers are very friendly and accommodating, and the food is good. They probably have some of the best ribs ever!

Needed seating to accommodate a wheelchair outdoors. Before I said a word, the staff knew who we were and what to do, even the other wait staff. Well organized, good pub food, nice atmosphere, good service.

Best crab cakes ever! The "Old Bay shrimp poppers" appetizer was also outstanding. I had green beans as one of my sides and they were cooked perfectly. Will be a repeat customer.

Food was amazing, I got the Crab Cake & Ribs and wow, just wow. The ribs were some of the best I've ever had, and the crab cake was really good, it wasn't dry and had big pieces of crab in it. I got coleslaw and baked beans as my sides and they were good as well. The only issue I had was with the service, it wasn't a busy night, and there were plenty of staff working, our waitress was nice and all, but she was working a few tables (some inside and outside), and she wasn't attentive to cleaning the table of the plates after finishing our dinner, and she wasn't making sure that our waters were kept full, what was interesting is that there were plenty of workers standing around doing nothing that could have cleared plates and checked on filling water, but they didn't seem to care.

Would 100% go back and still recommend the restaurant because the food is so good, but the service could use some improvement.

No, I wouldn't. No one at my table really liked their food. The service was excellent and the food came out quickly. The waitress kept checking on our table, and was extremely polite. I wouldn't go back because the food just wasn't good.

I went to the Corner Stable for father's day, I enjoyed the diversity of the menu. We ordered the Corn Nuggets as an appetizer which was amazing. I had their famous baby back ribs which were so moist they fell off the bone.

This was my first time going based on a recommendation and absolutely loved it. I ordered the ribs and crab cake. The rib meat just slid right off the bones. The sweet bbq sauce I choose was delicious. The crabs cake was one, if not , the best I've ever had. Large lump pieces of crab throughout. On the other hand, I tried someone else's crab dip and found that to be way over seasoned to the point of tasting too salty perhaps. The had the homemade sides of coleslaw and mac. and cheese and really like both of them. Someone else had the homemade chips which were also good. The service was fantastic and the place nicely laid out and clean. I wish there were one of these restaurants closer to my home!

The food, atmosphere and environment are always great. For a table of 12 we were taken care of pretty quickly with normal wait time for our food, drinks, etc. The experience for sure met our standards. Our party ordered ribs, fried chicken, crab cakes and steak. Everyone was pleased with the taste and amount of food.

Huge Mothers Day crowd had us waiting for one hour for our order. Food was great, but my crab cake inside the Cesepeake Club sandwich was fried... beer and wine were excellent. Nice waitresses

The crab cake in our Chesapeake Bay Club comes fried, but you can always ask to have it broiled instead, if you don't prefer a fried crab cake. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review!

Overall we like this place but would be careful about big group. We had a table of ten and it was 2 hours before food came out. It was 45 minutes after the manager apologized for the slow service and assured us she was expediting the order. The food was good, prices reasonable, and wait staff attentive but extremely slow. The smaller tables seemed to cycle through on a normal pace. I may return if I have a table if 4.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I do apologize for the wait time on your food, we were very busy all day so the food was taking a bit longer than usual. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the food once it arrived!

As usual the food was great I had the crab cake and ribs and he had a Mom’s Day Special Seafood Alfredo. We also started with the fried onion. I had a mimosa but it was warm, and our main entrees took along time to be served 1 hour after we were seated. However, it was Mother’s Day so it crowded and we didn’t order the entrees right away since we ordered an Appetizer. Will always return because we love the place.

We had reservations for 7PM for 4 people but arrived 15 in early. Seated around 7:05. Waitress came to take our drink order after about 10 minutes - we were ready to order, so we did. Drinks came after another wait of about 10 minutes. Never checked on again. It was getting close to 8PM, and we noticed that other people seated after us were already getting their food. Asked the waitress about it - received a lot of attitude, and said she would check.

When she came back, I asked if she was ok because it seemed that she was pretty unhappy. I said that we've been waiting a long time. Her response was "A lot of people are waiting. I'll get the manager." Very rude - and she was done with us - she wanted nothing to do with us.

Manager came by, and we explained that we had been waiting for a long time. She went to check and brought our food. Took 15% off of our check.

We know that it isn't easy being a server, but when you KNOW a customer has been waiting a long time whether it's your fault or not - just smile and apologize. Don't give the customer attitude. Be pleasant, and it'll be pleasant for everyone.

Our service was awful we waited for over an hour for our food and they weren’t even busy. When we asked for cocktail sauce it took us asking our server twice and then another server and she brought it. Our waitress came back to refill drinks and gave one of us something totally different. The food was good once we got it. But It was our first time being there and we won’t be in a rush to go back.

The Corner Stable hit the spot. We were looking for a casual place nearby that we could take our grandsons to for dinner and enjoy ourselves as well. Service was excellent. The crayons,wipes and little Oreos were perfect for them and kid's menu was varied enough to find something for everyone. The tater tots were especially enjoyed! Was able to get unsalted baked potato and broccoli - thanks!! The ribs were delicious and we were able to watch the Kentucky Derby from our seats. The design of the restaurant is great for noise control so we were able to have a conversation comfortably although the place was popular.

Family birthday (my son-in-law), we arrived with 4 adults and 3 children (1-8; 2-4). Seated in a nice area... Away from the main crowd - understandable. Service was slow and they were by no means crowded. Food was not what I remembered... Had signed crab cakes and ribs - ribs not very meaty, thought sauce was tasty. The crab cake was the big let down- nice size WTH good lump meaty but too much binder which was basically tasteless😢
