A place where you always know you will get the best of everything. The Point in Towson will feature wooden fixtures, back deck and game room, a large communal dining room, comfortable furnishings and decor with soothing warm tones. It is be the perfect place to stop in for a bite to eat, for a drink, a small business meeting, an Orioles game and everything in between.

Birthday celebration for daughter and grandson. Our table was ready upon arrival and service was wonderful. We tried many dishes and everyone enjoyed their selections. Will definitely return.

There are not too many "firsts" for us anymore in the Towson area, but I had heard good things about the Point and I checked the website and found suitable gluten free options. So off we went for an early supper on Saturday night. It was the perfect evening and we were glad to find we could get in a few minutes early. The atmosphere is upscale tavern and we loved it. I know we will be back! Since it was early and we had just come from a matinee, we were not starving, so we opted to eat appetizers. And wow! I am so glad we did. All of our choices were either GF or could be made that way. We ordered the crab guacomole and trust me, that is not to be missed. We chased it down with Chesepake deviled eggs and the taste synergies were really good. We backed it all up with a lovely charcuterie tray that included spicy, crispy bacon! How original is that? I drank two glasses of wine and had a lovely time. My husband made me promise we'd be back sooner rather than later.

They were very busy - probably to be expected for a Saturday brunch time but the food took a long while and when I had to send my first sandwich back - wasn’t as cooked as I would like it - the replacement sandwich took a long time to come. BUT the food was delicious and the drinks were great and the manager checked in and made things right. So all in all I would go back again - but probably not on a Saturday morning for brunch.

The food was good but we were outside on the patio and the service was poor. The girl was nice when she was at our table but that was not often - we were searching for her when we were ready to order drinks, then dinner...then waiting for her to pick up the check.

I would recommend for lunch... we went for dinner. Kinda pricey for the quality. Went for my birthday and noted it was a birthday on Open Table with our reservation. It was never mentioned we were there for a reason... Didn’t meet my expectations.

Went here for brunch with my friend and had an amazing experience! We were able to be seated right away and our waiter was super attentive. The food was excellent. Not to mention BOTTOMLESS MIMOSAS. I had the lobster grilled cheese which was loaded with lobster and super flavorful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good brunch spot!

Me and my friends went to the bottomless brunch and the food was AWESOMEEEEE!!!! We had to flag down staff a couple of times for drink refills but other than that it was a lovely experience. Great deal for the price!

Amiable staff on the side where we dined. Food was good, with one exception - the cauliflower bites with Thai chili jelly and HEAPS of siracha. So hot it was unpalatable - and I eat siracha on scrambled eggs, and nibble wasabi for fun. Our waitress was well intentioned - but the small side of ranch dressing that we ordered to cool off the cauliflower took almost 15 minutes to arrive, and there was no crowd on the restaurant side. The protein I’d ordered for my salad wasn’t brought for another 15 after the salad arrived. I’d recommend this to friends getting together who want a cold beer plus good food - but who have time to linger over dinner.

It was a nice time. Food was good, but nothing spectacular.
I appreciated the brunch menu; the chicken wings were good, but wasn't thrilled I only had two choices in quantity: 8 or 20.
Chicken and waffles were ok, but chicken was kind of dry, no flavor.
Breakfast bowl wasn't what I expected, but good: potatoes country sausage gravy and eggs.

Our server was wonderful! She was pleasant and very helpful! We were a party of 8 and she served us well. There was one issue. One person in my group did not receive her food until the rest of us were almost done. I don’t fault our server for this but it was a disappointment. Regardless, I will definitely visit The Point again!

Went for brunch on a Sunday and incredibly expensive compared to quality. Poached eggs were cold and potatoes undercooked which were on several dishes. Nice big bar and would recommend the snacks with beer and a game but not a good dining experience given the price. Maybe the fact that the place was empty could have been a tip that this really isn't a brunch place.

The Chesapeake devil eggs was really good but the rest of our food was just okay wasn't too happy that I had to wait a extra 15 minutes after receiving my food for my sides.

This was my third visit to The Point in Towson and the most disappointing yet. The Point in Fells is an old favorite of mine, so I'm a bit bummed that the one in Towson has been a let down every visit based on its food and service. First, my crab soup arrived barely warm and thick as crab dip. The waiter took forever to come back to the table, but he was very friendly and happy to retrieve a hotter soup. I ordered the scallops app, which was pretty good, the scallops were just a bit over- seasoned, and the dish was very salty (as was the crab soup). I ordered a side of "sauteed veggies" that was forgotten, and was brought out about 30 minutes late, and comprised of half-raw Brussels sprouts, broccoli and asparagus that was so covered in rock salt it was unpalatable (my husband agreed) Our waiter was also bar-tending, so service was extra slow but it was understandable (I assumed he and the chef must have been taking shots with customers) Other than that, the live music was great, the bar is a cool-looking spot with a fun line up of events.

Unfortunately we went for a special meal after my daughters graduation from Towson and it was very disappointing. We made a reservation for 1:30 got there at 1:20 and sat til 4 waiting for our food. We were greeted by a server who “claimed “ they were swamped-which was not really the case. All of the patrons around our table were equally disappointed with the service and quite honestly we will never return.

Made a reservation well in advance to enjoy Mother's Day with my two adult children before leaving for a flight back to CA. We arrived as the first guests and 10 minutes early, but two parties came in and were seated before us, including a large party with small children. Then the host tried to seat us next to them - the end with the small kids - even though there were plenty of open available tables. The food was tasty but the egg dishes were cold. At the end of the meal I visited the ladies room and saw a flyer for the event saying each Mom could get a free class of bubbly. That was never offered, I had to ask for it and did not get to enjoy it with my meal. The restaurant shows promise but the execution was very disappointing.

The hostess and servers were great but the food and drinks left a bit to be desired. My husband had a spicy margarita that just tasted like sour mix. We had mushroom empanadas which were cooked nicely but didn’t have much filling. There was pick de Gallo on the side that was really nice. The fired Brussels app was tasty. For dinner I had salmon which was a good portion and cooked pretty well but needed salt over cauliflower rice which was a bit bland and was floating in a sea of overly sweet plum jelly. Not my cup of tea. My husband had scallops, again prepared well but the pasta they were with was bland. I’ve heard really good things about brunch here so we will probably try that and I think dinner could be better with some small tweaks:)
