18th & 21st brings something fresh and classic to Columbia, Maryland. Named after the Constitutional Amendment that enacted Prohibition and then subsequent Amendment that repealed it, 18th & 21st promises to bring back a bygone era through an elevated, tailored evening experience. Our food and cocktails reflect the feel of prohibition supper clubs. This not to say we're stuck in the past, but rather that we try and emulate the style of that era. That means beautiful presentation, careful crafting, and perfect pairings to keep your night on beat. Combined with live music, this creates an unparalleled experience for the discerning and adventurous looking for a sophisticated evening. Due to the nature of the experience at 18th & 21st we request that all diners be over the age of eighteen.

  • Wild Turkey Dinner

    $135.00 per personPrepaid

    Jun 30, 2021 only

    Join us Wednesday, June 30th for an amazing evening featuring the whiskies of American Legend Wild Turkey. Going into the 4th of July weekend there are few brands that feel as All-American as Wild Turkey. Wild Turkey is a brand that everyone has had at some point in their drinking careers, but sometimes gets lost in the great pantheon of bourbon distillers. It would be a huge mistake to overlook these incredible whiskies. Join us and Gavin Kimball to drink, eat, and talk about wonderful whiskies. The whiskies will be paired with a fabulous three course menu from Chef Brian and his team. It's an evening not to be missed

There was a live cabaret band playing; which meant that it was fairly loud. However, the food was sublime and the service impeccable. I especially enjoyed the drinks.

We went at the suggestion of our son to see a Baltimore Jazz piano legend. We were fortunate to get the table directly across from the piano which was perfect for us. We've been several times as this is one of our favorite restaurants in Columbia - especially love the feel of 18th and 21st. Service was top notch as usual and the food was very good.

We had a delicious birthday dinner (included complementary dessert) with music for entertainment. Be sure to make a reservation. The restaurant was full on a weekday evening. Service was very slow. Dinner lasted 3 hours. We didn't mind too much because we were with friends and had lots to talk about. We were ready for a leisurely meal, but it took 30 minutes to get our first drink! Good food and drinks but expensive. Pleasant ambiance with music, like a NY supper club. Good choice for a special occasion.

Our experience started out well. Cocktails were very good. Special appetizer clams casino were so overcooked as to be inedible. Caesar salad was one of the worst we have ever had. Main courses, pan seared scallops and rockfish filet, were nicely plated and delicious. The live music is a nice touch, but it was so loud as to make conversation very difficult.

we rated them on the food scale...apps and desert were great but main course was underwhelming. I had blacked ribery w mashed potatoes. The steak was bland and so were the potatoes and there wasn't a lot..felt the entree was not worth the price.
