It all began with a love story and a dream. Linwood, a chef, and Ellen, a reporter, met 36 years ago in a restaurant of course! They married and began to envision that someday they would open a restaurant of their own. The restaurant’s first business plan was written at their dining room table on an electric typewriter. In 1988 Linwoods opened its doors, and it has been a labour of love for more than thirty years.

Linwoods’ cuisine consists of the freshest ingredients, and inventive preparation. Our service is warm and attentive. We have developed a reputation for consistency an attention to detail. These qualities are key to our catering business as well. Our team has worked hard to connect to our community, and we value our customers. These values have been central to Ellen and Linwood’s vision, and we hope are felt by our customers each day.

    It was my daughter’s 54th birthday, and her gift was Linwoods. She told me, several times, it was the best meal she’d ever eaten. AM

    I always enjoy the food and the service at Linwoods. My only complaint is that my family and I felt extremely cramped at our table. The seating is way too close together. Unfortunately, we had to sit and listen to the entire conversation of the group that was seated next to us. The woman was very loud, and her conversation was not appropriate when seated in a public place. It was very frustrating for us, and we couldn't wait to leave!

    I don’t live in Maryland but visit from time to time. Linwoods is the definitive fine dining experience in the Baltimore suburbs of Owings Mills/Randallstown/McDonough and Pikesville. The service is old school and exceptional. The bar is lively with mature and friendly patrons. There is a “neighborhood professional” feel to the crowd around the bar. If you are in the area and want excellent cuisine with first class service then Linwoods should be among the top choices you consider.

    We went to Linwood's for our anniversary dinner. Hubby had the Maryland crab soup and the crab cake with handmade Old Bay chips. I had the salmon dukkah with pistachios, wild mushrooms and red wine reduction. I was pleasantly surprised and he was as well. There was nothing missing nor did the meals need anything added. We asked for the dessert menu, and then, to our surprise! the waitress brought us a lovely plate with a mini s'mores, adorned with a lit candle. The Platte also had the words "Happy Anniversary" written with chocolate over the wide rim. This was such a lovely and thoughtful gesture! We will gladly recommend Linwood's Owings Mills to anyone who is considering dining there. You won't be disappointed! Also a thank you to our wonderful waitress Megan, who was attentive without being annoying. Thanks again!

    Fabulous service and delicious food. The wait staff is very attentive and the chef/owner will visit your table to thank you for coming. The French onion soup is amazing. We had the halibut and salmon entrees and both meals were scrumptious. One person in our party had the scallops and she said they were the best she ever had. Linwoods never disappoints.

    The food was outstanding. I had the bronzino and it was excellently prepared. The service was wonderful. We got a visit from the chef/owner which was very nice. Our only problem, and we should have said something, was that our table was too close to another table and one of my guests could not sit comfortably due to the oversize of the person behind him. I should have asked to be seated at another table. Otherwise, it was a fantastic meal in a classy setting. The wait staff was very professional and well trained.

    It’s always great to see a local restaurant busy on a weekday! Kudos to the staff and management for another good experience. We had our 1 yr old with us (happens sometimes lol). Although we like to think she is a well-behaved foodie: does not change that she still is only 1! Staff sat us in a corner and were very attentive. Food was as always great. For anyone who has not been to this restaurant expect an upscale, open kitchen, white table cloth, business casual environment. It’s just great to know that the staff is also very accommodating, even to the occasional toddler.

    We visited Linwoods to celebrate my husband's 79th birthday and it was one of the best dining experiences we've had in quite some time. From the accommodating booking (they got us in at exactly the time we wanted) to the server's excellent suggestions, we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Our meals were superb, both the Halibut and the Salmon were perfectly prepared. Our only small complaint was that the martini he ordered was a little too strong - apparently they use little to no vermouth! The server was knowledgeable and suggested excellent main dishes. We'll look forward to the next special event there!
