Linwoods is our favorite restaurant, always with classy outstanding service and food.
It is pricey, but worth it for an occasional relaxed experience, and not pretentious.

The service was excellent and food great! We are thankful our friends moved to that area and we decided to check this out. We always try to have a special event for the holidays with these friends whom we have known for almost 30 years. This was upon there with one of the best. May need to repeat it sooner than the holidays!!

Our daughter was visiting from Chicago and we were looking to treat her to a “Chicago” dining experience in Balltimore. Linwoods delivered in every way. The atmosphere, the food and the service were all fantastic. We could not have been more pleased.

We picked out and engagement ring today and Linwood helped make the day that much more special. Our waiter was friendly and showed up at just the right times. He helped with the desert selection and he was spot on. Sincerely enjoyed our lunch and will always remember this special day and the wonderful service we received. The food was phenomenal and the Last Word was perfection.

This was our 23 or 24th dinner at Linwoods this year so I guess you could say that we are very much regulars. We love Linwoods. The food is always perfect. Our regular server, Annie always takes great care of us. Sunday was Christmas eve and the restaurant was packed. No other restaurant in Baltimore County comes close to Linwoods for great food and great service. Getting there is easy and parking is a snap.

Even on a busy night Linwoods excels at food and service. It is always a total package. The crispy oysters are just that, crispy but not overwhelmed in breading so you can still taste the oysters. The special white bean soup on the menu that night was thick with beans and bacon flavor; for a winter's night. The eggplant salad wth the French feta was excellent as usual. My godson had the steak with pepper sauce and pronounced it perfect and he is picky. The tuna with the citrus spread was so gorgeous that it looked like a filet. Of course, the crab cake was perfect as usual, fresh, full of lump crab, complimented by great crunchy fries

We have dined at Linwoods many times and it is one of the best!. Food is always perfectly prepared. The seasonal menu is outstanding. Linwood likes to circulate among the diners to insure everything is right. Definitely our "go to" place for a great meal.

We ordered the three course lunch. My friend ordered the wedge salad, which ended up being a flower, not a wedge. Not nearly as good as when we dined there previously. Salmon had a really heavy glaze, not light as previously. Vegetables were too hard and cabbage was added which was bitter. Waiter was efficient, but did not ask us about ice cream flavors we preferred. By the time we could contact him, someone had already brought our desserts

Linwood’s has a peerless quality to dining outside of downtown Baltimore. Food is consistently inventive and satisfying, service is superb and you’re always better off for choosing it over lower priced alternatives. Parking was at a premium there 2 weeks before Christmas, so my lunch companion drove around and around until finding a space. Party spaces were full of guests but it was worth it for such divine dining. You truly feel welcome and catered to by the wait staff too.
