The charming downtown of Westminster, Maryland, is a great place to start your restaurant search because this is where classic stone and brick architecture meets hearty cuisine. The city center offers Irish pub food, white-linen fine dining, American grill, surf-and-turf, Thai, Italian, and Texas-style barbecue plus a few cafes. East on Railroad Avenue about half a mile from the town center, there’s an extensive shopping complex with Mexican, Japanese, and Chinese restaurants. There are also a number of casual dining and fast food chains in that area, plus a food court in the TownMall of Westminster. In the southeastern part of Westminster, you’ll find French cuisine, Italian food, bar and grill fare, and a lineup of familiar casual dining chain spots along Baltimore Boulevard.
