Everything was wonderful during our 6 course dinner with wine pairings. From our name printed on the menu to the perfect place settings and well-timed courses, we had an incredible dinner. The food was absolutely delicious and our service was top notch. Exquisite! Can't wait to return!

Taneytown’s mind-blowing sleeper of dining extravagance gave our group of 7 a world-class culinary experience for our combined birthdays—All at far less cost than a similar eatery closer to Baltimore or DC. Multiple course meal served European style complete with amuse-bouche, mains include spectacular lamb and fish dishes, all locally sourced. Selfishly, I kinda hope no one reads this review so we can keep it to ourselves.

From start to finish- excellent service, beautiful atmosphere and delicious food. Paul mixed wonderful drinks and is friendly and helpful. Sarah- a lovely server and excellent sommelier. The chef does a beautiful presentation of delicious food and always accommodates my gluten allergy and digestive issues without compromising his excellent dishes. The atmosphere- elegant. A perfect evening.

My wife and I have had dinner more than a few times at Antrim 1844. We continue to go back because we enjoy their menu, the live piano music, as well as the professionalism and knowledge of the staff. They make us feel that each and every time we have eaten here, that our experience is paramount. The courses are explained in detail. Should you want to do a wine pairing for each of your courses, they can offer their suggestions, which we have taken each time, and have not been disappointed. This place has an old classy feel to it and would be a great destination for special occasions, especially if you are trying to impress.

as a great getaway for any couple. The rooms are beautiful and relaxing, service is great in the Pub and the Smokehouse for Dinner and Breakfast. We plan to return soon.

When my husband and I arrived we were created, and brought to the pub, we both ordered a drink and the gingerbread martini I had was amazing. We were seated at a back table and it felt so private even though there were three other tables near us. The warm fireplace and the piano music made the night even better. Our server was fantastic, the first course was decadent, I wasn’t a big fan of one of them, but everything else was delicious. The chefs thank you course my husband got the seafood salad and I had the cheese, and that was magical. The bread with the truffle butter was beyond words. The French onion soup was also the best one I have ever eaten. My appetizer was the burrata and my husbands was the crab cake, both excellent. The white peach sorbet before the entree was another delicious treat, I could eat a whole bowl of that. Now the entree, my husband had the Atlantic salmon, and according to him that was the best salmon he has ever eaten, and I had the filet mignon and that was the most tender, melt in your mouth steak I have ever eaten. Finally the dessert, he had the cheese plate and I had the desserts. Everything was wonderful and I still can’t stop thinking about the food, I wished I had more.

This is the place to dine. From the warm greeting at the front door, hors d'oeuvres and champagne to start things off, to the outstanding four course meal including special Chef treats along the way and a palate cleanser before the entree, a bottle of fine wine, and fabulous deserts, all orchestrated by a wonderful waitress Sarah who is also a Sommelier. What more could you desire? Oh yes, an accomplished pianist and a beautiful anti-bellum hotel in which to enjoy this fabulous experience.

One of the fanciest places I've ever been to! Holy Cow from start to finish every part of your experience was thought of. Not to mention they were really killing it with the holiday spirit - the decoration, the live piano player, the many fireplaces avaialble. I was worried about french servings, but the dishes where the perfect amount of real hunger. They were very attentive to any sepcial requests as well. I only had to note in my OpenTable reservation that we were celebrating a birthday - I did not mention it upon arrival - and they came out at the end of the night with a birthday candle on dessert! What a great expereince!! <3

Even in the midst of a pandemic, Antrim delivered a wonderful experience. Drinks, food, service all excellent. The house is still decorated beautifully!

Our server/sommelier was excellent. We enjoyed everything!

Thank you for a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy holiday season.

Felt that our server was a tad pushy with the wine offering. We said we were not interested in the special of the eve, he then brought a bottle for our inspection. He was also rather loud and a bit too talkative with the tables. We had to pour a refill of our wine at one point. Ambiance wonderful,food excellent.
