Barbecue
Supporting the Odenton community for forty years, Jim’s Hideaway has drawn eager diners from Annapolis to Baltimore, delivering a great time and good food. Fast-forwarding to the present (and under new ownership), the fully-renovated Hideaway is delivering some of the best creative barbeque you will ever eat, served in a fun, relaxed atmosphere… with low-and-slow pecan-smoked “Q”, two bars, three dining rooms (one “family-friendly”), alcoholic milkshakes (from our home-made ice cream), karaoke and live music. Everything is fresh, sometimes including our waitstaff!​

Very good BBQ. 1st time there, I intend to return. The pit master came out to ask about the meal. Very nice. The wings were excellent, enjoyed the beef brisket.

Not impressed. Layout seems an after thought. Tables and booths uncomfortable. Service was ok, but the place is loud (bar area). Our menu item's, beef and chicken were not bad, however, they were a bit dry. Sides were small and lacked flavor. Parking can be an issue, so be prepared.

If you're in the mood for some good barbeque, this is the place. When trying to decide where to go on Valentine, I chose a spot that didn't appear romantic BUT my wife & I really wanted ribs. Our visit was the day after Valentine and it was messy outside from an snow/ice storm. A perfect time to visit. Our waitress, Madison, was awesome. She was friendly, attentive & informative.
My wife ordered a 1/2 rack of ribs and that was the biggest 1/2 rack I'd seen. She said it was good but wasn't "fall-off-the-bone" type. I had a NY strip which was good but not outstanding. The prices weren't bad (moderate).
As for the restaurant, it is country rustic and warm. Plenty of space so you're not too close to other patrons. The most interesting thing is the name fits the place. It's slightly off the beaten pathway. You almost feel like you're in the backwoods and away from the hustle & bustle.

Made reservation for February 13 for 4 people for 6:00 pm. Once we got there at 6 the front lady told me my reservation was for 6:30, so I check my reservation time on my phone and I was right it was for 6. Well she took us to a table in a creepy room at the end of the restaurant, ugly room. I wasnt impressed with the food at all. The only good thing was the service, the waitress was very nice and that creepy room was crowded and she gave us a good service despite she was by herself serving the bar and the people on the tables.

very nice dinning establishment tucked away in a back street neighborhood in Odenton. I was pleasantly surprise at the innovative menu selection. very nice variety of items with good selections to chose from. Drink menu was very affordable and priced appropriately. Food was fantastic.

The Hideaway has been discovered! Busy place but you wouldn't know it from the quality, attentive service we received. The food was incredible from appetizers, to dinner to dessert! We love this restaurant and will remain loyal customers!

The best pulled pork I've had ... EVER!
Lauren, our waitress, was a gem. So welcoming and warm. She mentioned that the owner is Bob.
Bob, great food, great service - congratulations!

The food was cold. I got the pulled pork sandwich (the ultimate I believe they call it) and it had pieces of hard pork chunks. Not exactly pulled pork like I was expecting. The fries were below average. Service was slow and they weren't even busy. Prices were okay. The place needs updating inside. The bar does not match the rest of the restaurant. Highly disappointed.

Accurately named, the Hideway is tucked away in Odenton. but man what a find.. first visit.. Went with wife and 4 kids, we all had something different and all the food was terrific. Get the Old Bay wings.. could make a meal of it, they are that good. Karaoke night on Friday.. Everyone wants to know when we are going back.

Best Bar-B-Q in town. Ribs are fantastic, and the smoked chicken wings are sublime.

Wings are fantastic. Great variety of deserts. Brussel sprouts and collard greens are always our go-to. Bar service is great but dining room staff could use little training. You can tell owner is passionate and attentive to diners during his rounds

Third time here and we will keep coming back. Best brisket in the area, bar none. Excellent pulled pork. Owner comes to each table to make sure everything is okay. Not easy to find, but well worth the effort.

Best BBQ in DMV area. Owner very friendly and came out to ask about our food. He was trained with pitmaster in South Carolina for over ten years. Great food and generous portions. Wanted to try the dessert but was too full. Next time!

We shared the sampler thinking we would try it all to see what we liked best. I am thankful that we did that because we did not like any of it. They did not serve bread with the meal so we ordered bread (.99) it was small as a small roll and hard as a brick. It did not come with butter so we asked for butter and got it after the waitress said she had to go all over to find any. I guess they must use that hard bread for their crab dip. I can not imagine their serving it with a meal. Really bad experience. I rated the noise level energetic since there was no other rating but it was really very noisy in the eating area as well as the bar.

The only pleasant spot was the baked beans. Not worth the price of dinner.

This was our 2nd visit to the recently opened Hideway. The food was good - a bit over-priced (especially compared to Red Hot & Blue, Smokey Bones, etc.) Atmosphere is nothing special. Service was very good - server Lorenzo was very attentive.
