Our server was a rock star. We had a table of 8 with 4 kids and she took care of every one of us like we were the only ones there. She had great recommendations on food and drinks and could not have been friendlier.

This was our first visit back to this restaurant after about a year and it is quite different than it was when it originally opened. The menus are much smaller now, including the drink menus. Prices were a bit high (we felt, at least) for what we had. Everything was cooked well though but portions were smaller than we remembered.

Fried oysters were OK - good crispiness, but the slaw was basically flavorless, and did nothing for the subtle oysters. Chicken parmigiana was meh, with no side pasta, but the pork chop was excellent, the side order of parsnip and bacon hash a great flavor and textural accompaniment to the sweetly finished, tender chop. Creamed spinach also very good. Apple tart was mushy, with mediocre flavor, and the parmigiana crisp added nothing but salt.

The kitchen was having problems. The pizza oven was broken, they were unable to prepare a standard hamburger, and salads all used kale even though I saw Romaine lettuce in multiple groceries the same day. My steak was good but my wife’s crab cake was fried rather than broiled. I requested a wedge salad without bacon. I was brought one with bacon which I sent back for replacement. There was far too much blue cheese dressing on the salad which caused me GI problems later that night. At least the chocolate cake was good.

We had a very nice time at Cunningham’s. The food was excellent, it was not busy at all, and the service was really good. The waiter got the kids food they liked. The cake we ordered earlier was brought to the table and cut into pieces. It was absolutely beautiful and delicious!

While my wife and I have eaten at Cunningham's a number of times in the past, this was the least enjoyable of our experiences there. The food was satisfactory, but not much more than that. Our server was attentive but spoke quickly and with an indistinct voice that was difficult to understand, especially given the noise level. We had requested a quiet table, but were ushered to one next to a very noisy bar/cocktail area. When we asked if there were quieter tables in the rear dining area where we have dined before, we were told that there was a large party there that was quite noisy, so we took the table offered as being the best available under the circumstances. It is difficult to believe that the rear area could have been much noisier than where we were seated, however. The lighting and overall comfort of the table and seats were also much less desirable than the rear area. If and when we return, we will insist on better seating where we can at least carry on a conversation. Based on this experience, I would recommend this restaurant to others only with reservations.

I was not aware that Cunningham’s had downgraded their menu options and service. Great disappointment because I brought 5 Bishops there in an effort to treat them royally. The service provided by the waiter was mediocre, and at times, quite embarrassing when he was rubbing his nose just before placing our dinner before us. I could say more but I choose not to.

My wife and I had dinner there this past Sunday evening (11/25/18) and it was outstanding. Service and food were excellent!! I ordered the 20 ounce Rib Eye Steak and my wife ordered the Beef Tenderloins, which were both cooked to our perfection. We finished our meal by splitting a Chocolate Cake and then taking a piece to go. We would definitely recommend as a go to restaurant for Special Occasions.

Birthday Dinner. Food was good, but our adorable waitress Amanda made the night. I would suggest that they offer a vegetarian option besides gnocchi. Or, having a variety of vegetable sides or a vegetable appetizer would be ideal. This place is a great Towson option with consistently good food. I think a few creative menu tweaks would make this restaurant more memorable and a “go to” place in Towson. We will definitely be back.

I had the seared ahi with blanched spinach not the creamed version on the menu. My daughter had the crab cake, which is hard to eval in MD but they are really good. Service, wine list and ambiance set this place apart. In the winter months no one compares to their self parking garage a savior in inclement weather. Love this place on Thursday when it’s live jazz.

Honestly food was above average and the decor was cool. This place really needs to up its service. It was lifeless and stale at best. We barely saw our waiter. The manager was helping out (not that busy) and didn’t take drinks appropriately. Someone asked for pepper and a grinder was brought to the table but not actually served. So weird. No one checked on us until right before the bill came. 9/10
Won’t be back.

I have dined at Cunningham's on a number occasions. I brought a friend it was her first time and who is very particular about restaurants. She needs a gluten free diet while there was not a lot of choices our wait staff check with the kitchen staff to see what choices she did have. She said she was impressed.

Jay, the Executive Chef, bounds around the restaurant with so much enthusiasm, you just want to hug him! He had just opened the private wine room for a young couple, then took a photo on their cell phone as he gave them a special key card. I asked the couple later about the scene , and they said it was their 3rd Anniversary. Awwwh. The young man told me how he had recently taken a cooking class with Jay and it sounded awesome (and a bargain for $35).

Our waitress Samantha, was very pleasant, and our appetizers, cornmeal encrusted oysters (my favorite),and Caesar salad, came out so quickly - great for me as I was starved. Oysters were perfectly crisp with a luscious soft center. Drinks and entrees were just as fast and delicious.

Our server, though very attentive, sounded disappointed that we were just ordering entrees and not appetizers. She also seemed disappointed that I didn't want a second drink (I believe she asked three times). I had a proseco, and the glass was ridiculously awkward for drinking (Should a glass have to rest on my nose just to enjoy contents?) The ziti bolognese seemed very bland. Very. Bland. It tasted like sloppy joes over pasta, and the pasta tasted wet, wimpy and did not resemble ziti. At least not ziti that I've dined with previously. However, my wife really enjoyed her chicken parmesan. The bread, which I assumed was made in-house, felt almost refrigerator cold. The devil's in the details.


Having said that, we were a party of four and our server (we were all the way in the back area) gave us constant attention, and this was much appreciated.

Because there was a large concert crowd outside , our experience was not typical in any way. The menu was very abbreviated due to the nature of the crowd (college) but was still tempting and had good choices. Our server was a doll , and never was a more than a minute away.
