We had a nice quiet table until another party arrived that was very loud, and unfortunately it ruined our experience. The food was OK but expensive. $19 for a hamburger. The one dollar oysters on Tuesday night were just OK. They were small and not so tasty. I probably will not be back soon.
It’s a hidden gem,
If you want to enjoy a relaxing Sunday, this is the perfect place to have a good scenic view, good drinks and food.
We had the WORST server EVER in our life. He was so rude, lacked customer service skills and soft tone interaction skills. He argued with us when we brought it to his attention that he had not attended to us for about 45 mins to an hour, hence we never got to order our main entree after eating our appetizers. He never came to check on us, and had to call him loudly when he was passing our table. He was horrible in making any recommendations and didn't have any knowledge on beverages. He never brought spoons for plating our appetizers. He spoke to us in such a commanding tone and attitude that me and my guest thought we were in a Military camp. Overall, GET RID OF HIM and hire somebody who wants to genuinely do this type of job. Not once did he even smile! WHAT AN ODIOUS attitude and truly spoilt the ambience yet my friend drove all the way from Richmond, VA. That is not our Howard community culture!
Nice well spaces outdoor tables with space heaters. Food is always good!
So glad that we found this hidden gem! Absolutely stunning views especially during the evening hours. Service was stellar and the food was delicious, served piping hot and exceeded my expectations. Fresh and packed with flavor! Must try’s are the salmon, tuna tartare, and the burrata! I promise they won’t disappoint! Thanks
Excellent food! Ate outdoors on the heated patio - nice ambiance! Service was a bit slow.
wine was very under poored!
so we had to order another glass.
Hasan is amazing !! Really enjoyed my time and experience at the restaurant. Will be returning over and over again! Delicious food but even better staff.
Great evening with friends eating dinner on the patio. Space heaters were well placed for a chilly night. Food was good but one of us ordered a well done hamburger and received one dripping with blood. They were gracious about making a new one but overall service was less than enthusiastic.
The Patio view was awesome, right at sunset, the leaves in full color Blume, Their were some loud tables around us to make conversation not the best. We were greeted by our server and the staff forgot to bring out our appetizer. Food was great, wine selections were good but short for by the glass order. Worth the drive from PA for a place out of the way road trip destination..
Superb....as always....never disappoint
We had a great Saturday lunch on the Turn House Patio on a beautiful sunny day. Service was exceptional, setting was just great. Food continues to be very flavorful and attractively presented.
Asked for outside seating... construction kept us inside...a call would have been nice
Service quite slow considering not many other guests were there!
Food as always .... very good!!!
Such a great place. Nice and warm! Lol I loved the fireplaces! Drinks and food was great!
My girlfriend and I dined here for her birthday and the service and food were superb! We will definitely be visiting again soon.
Beautiful restaurant with great atmosphere. Food and drinks were delicious. Great views of the golf course.
Everything was great except the hostess when you first get there. She needs to be friendly and smile.
The food is exquisite and the service was enjoyable. Will definitely go again!!
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful, warm Wednesday evening dining outside at the Turn House. Social distancing and health safety observed and practiced here. We enjoyed the weekday special of 50% off select bottles of wine. Our appy's of Sour Dough Bread and Crispy Brussel Sprouts were very tasty. My warm Lobster Rolll was delicious and I substituted the chips for a small side salad. My wife enjoyed her Baby Lettuce Salad with chicken. Our table on the terrace and facing the golf course was very nice. We'd love to come back soon and hope the weather stays warm! Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. Lots of free parking for the club house/restaurant.
I would best describe this restaurant as one level above bar food. Not much imagination goes into the menu. Everything is pretty much meh.
Service was pretty good, however, they are in no rush to clear the table of plates after you a finished eating your starter plate.
Pretty View and nice brunch. Bloody Mary not worth 11 dollars
We went for a place with a view where we could at (safely from COVID) outside to meet friends midway between our respective homes in Chevy Chase and Baltimore.
We asked a nephew who lives in Columbia to recommend a place that would fit that bill.
It did, plus the food and service both were very good.
Second time dining at the Turn House, dinner the first time, now I've enjoyed the brunch. My companions all loved the atmospher, service and food.
We met friends for dinner and found Turn House bc it had a patio with outdoor heaters. It was very comfortable and nice to be able to sit outside.
The food was good but we all agreed it was a bit pricey for what you got. The scallop meal should have come with a salad - it was pretty small portion and pretty much void of a side.
The crab cakes were wonderful and instead of fries I did get a very nice side salad.
The food and service was amazing, there was an event happening which was loud at times but overall we had a great time.
This was my first time dining at the Turn House. I sat outside. There was a heating lamp and a beautiful view of the golf course. Everything was delicious and the service good.
Fantastic food and drinks, as always! The weather was perfect for patio dining and the service was great. I was only disappointed that it took an hour for us to get our food. Luckily we filled up on drinks while we waited.
I found the website for this restaurant in a google search for options in Columbia, MD. I didn't realize that it sits alongside a golf course, nestled in a residential neighborhood. Pulling into the parking lot, I didn't know what to expect - but I was more than pleasantly surprised! The setting is beautiful and the restaurant has made great efforts in incorporating social distancing. My friends and I primarily sat on the covered terrace, overlooking the course. The terrace has multiple outdoor heaters, ample seating (well spread out), as well as an available fire pit. The fall foliage and evening sunset was a gorgeous view of the course. The cocktails and food were delicious. And the servers were all very friendly, welcoming, and attentive. Definitely worth 5 stars and I hope to be back soon! We had a wonderful time.
Lovely patio especially in these Covid times. Great food
It is a great place for wine lovers. I highly recommend.
Very nice outdoor place!
Food was excellent. Timing of service and food delivery could be improved.
There was a backup in the kitchen the caused a delay during service. The waiter kept us updated which I appreciated but dampered the mood of dinner. I imagine that is a rare occurrence otherwise the atmosphere was delightful..
The food was good overall but not quite what we expected. Tomato bisque was very rich. Lobster roll had too many shallots for me, not being an onion person. Buratta was very non-traditional and not our thing.
The service and ambience was great. Would definitely return to dine here again.
We had a wonderful experience at Turn House, with a huge amount of seating outside, our table was in a great spot with fantastic views, very attentive service, and a delicious meal. Looking forward to returning. A perfect location any time.
It was amazing seating outdoors
Our raw oysters were perfectly shucked, cleaned and tasty. I had the beef with carrot pasta special. While it was very good, I think the addition of perhaps small cooked carrots would make it even better. As prepared, it was mainly a beef stew taste. My wife had the crab cake platter. She said the veggies & fries were perfect. Her preference is for broiled rather than fried crab cakes. Our desserts were great. The cheesecake with blueberries rated an A+. The warm chocolate chip cookie with toast & jam ice cream rated an A, mainly due to the cheesecake.
The food was great! The service was not good at all.
First, no one greated us at the host stand. After 5 minutes, the bartender says “ I will be right over twice “. He never made it. Another tall gentleman sat us.
Now to the table service:
My mother asked for app, a beverage and a specific condiment.
The app took forever, the drink came right before her meal and the condiment didn’t come at all. She had to ask again.
I asked for cheddar cheese on my chicken sandwich and the bun on the side. The server said “we don’t have cheddar and I will come back tell you what we have”. He never came back, my sandwich arrived with American cheese and on the bun.
I won’t go back, I can find other places to nearly $100 for much with no alcohol.
Beautiful view very nice menu and the service was great
