If you're looking for ambiance or a date night - this is not the place. It was an average sports bar. The good was "ok" - not bad but nothing to write home about. The crab cakes were made with loads of lump crab and not a lot of binder. But they lacked flavor!! The cream of crab soup was not good at all - overheated maybe such that the cream and butter were separated. It was brown not white / creamy. The crab pretzel was very good - the pretzel was yeasty and fluffy and the crab dip was a good consistency. The ribs were excellent; but the shrimp they came with left a lot to be desired. Overall - it was decent "bar food" but I wouldn't put it on my list to revisit.

Tremendous service. Not many people as we went when they first opened. Tots weren't to my girlfriend's liking and the waitress took them back and took off of the bill. Her service was great throughout. Definitely will return again.

The food was good. However, the ribs tasted freezer burned. Crab cakes now have more filler than before. Drinks were not good, at all. Bartender couldn't make a proper
cosmopolitan. Given a 3:15 pm dinner reservation as the only available time on Sunday.
However, the restaurant was empty, except for one couple, even when we left around
5:00 pm.

Sat at 7:30. Food came out at 9.... no manager ever came to table to talk to us. From talking to other patrons, their experience was just as bad

No crab meat on the menu- no carrots for roast. Mashed potoroos have a weird taste. Fried chicken breasts were too large and dry. Blooming onion was good. Will never go back

We have dined here many times. The prime rib Valentine's Day special was very good. Ribs and crab cakes are always a good choice. Service is attentive. Kitchen can be slow if there are large groups ahead of you. Corner Stable is a great neighborhood option.

I always have a great time at this restaurant. It's my girlfriend and I's favorite place to go for a good night out. Our servers are friendly, thoughtful, and always do their best to ensure we're having a good time. The food is lovely, even though we always end up getting the same thing but, it's nice that the servers never judge us. It's sometimes difficult to communicate because my girlfriend and I have autism but we really appreciate their patience and non-discriminatory demeanor. Overall, my experience was amazing and I will always recommend Corner Stable - Columbia to a friend, family, or colleague.

Can't recommend them any more. My fried chicken was dry and overdone by a longshot. My wife's candied carrots were hard and dry. Both were disgusting. Didn't even want to tell the server because the wait to get them replaced would have been too long for our evening plans. Not the server's fault...but the kitchen's fault. What has happened? The Corner Stable used to take pride in the quality of the food coming out of the kitchen!

We met another couple to enjoy dinner prior to a concert. We’ve eaten at Corner Stable several times but it was the first time for our friends. We all ordered crab cakes—sandwiches for my husband and me; dinner platters for our friends. The Corner Stable really does make good crab cakes. Our server was very attentive. She honored our request for separate checks with no problem. I’m sure we will be back.

Food was excellent and so was our server. Bus person that was clearing the table stacked all the half full glasses up on the table and walked away. All the glasses fell over and splashed on our jackets and he didn’t even say I’m sorry or check what had happened. Our server came over later to help and wipe our jackets that were all wet and stained. At least he tried but the other young man could have care less what he did. Horrible attitude and should look for another job if he thinks he is being forced to work there.

The Corner Stable Columbia is a nice change from the Cockeysville location. Easy parking, always able to get a table without a wait and the same great food! I've been a Stable customer for over 20 years starting at the Cockeysville location. Columbia is much closer to my home and the food is excellent from appetizers to dessert. The ribs are the best! Service is always fast and friendly. It's very clean (even the bathrooms).

This was our first visit to Corner Stable. The food was good to great, depending upon the entree. The 1/2 rack of ribs and crab cake sandwich were excellent. The waitress was very knowledgeable regarding the menu, friendly, and very attentive!. The only criticism really is that the interior is not only very dark and dated, but really beat up. Makes me really worry about the condition of the kitchen!
