Food was good but priced a little high for the quality. Our waiter was wasted drunk. At one point he needed to sit down and other patrons were attending him. He was good but certainly too drunk to be waiting on us.

This was our first visit and the food was delicious and great portions, especially for a brunch. I was, however disappointed that the waiter did not share with us the available specials. Instead we had to overhead them being offered to the adjoining table. In his defense. It was his first week on the job

Was expecting better. The price is reasonable but the quality of the food was below average. I had the pork chop which was ok but the sides were awful. The fried brussels were over cooked and very greasy. The autumn vegetable hash, though a great idea, came up well short of the mark as it appeared to be from the day before. My wife had the pan seared halibut which was good but when accompanied by the overcooked Jasmine rice the entire plate was rather uninspiring. I find it disappointing going to dinner and being served food that I could prepare better myself.

My husband ordered pan roasted chicken and I ordered short ribs.In 7 years we have been together this was the first time I’ve seen my husband return his food. His chicken was dried and ice cold. Even the casting iron pan was cold. We were chocked they tried to serve that. My food was okay, also cold and obviously not fresh. We went there to celebrate his birthday.

The draft beer system was not working, several items on the menu were not available. The server was overworked but honest about his recommendations of what not to order. I now know why it has been 3+ years since I was last here.

The food was great. We did sit for over 15 minutes before seeing a server. I had to go to the host station and ask them to find us someone. Once we finally ordered drinks and apps, no one checked back into refresh beverages for quite some time. The server that ended up taking care of us was lovely and apologized for the lack of attention. We know help is extremely hard to find at the moment, so please accept this as constructive criticism. We will be back!

The braised short rib was not tender, it seemed like it had been overcooked then reheated. This is the first time I've had a bad meal there though, so hopefully it was just a one time occurrence.

Tori (not sure of spelling) was our main waitress and she was great. Very friendly, good sense of humor, efficient, patient, accommodating. She had her work cut out for her, waiting on 5 senior women of varying moods and cognition. Kudos to her.

Also like the roomy booth, comfy booths.

Love Towson Tavern! Always have a great time there - amazing cocktails, great food at a good value too.

Hope they are able to revamp the restaurant in the future though, because it’s starting to feel a bit dated inside.

We tried to be supportive of our server (she was newish). Unfortunately, our appetizers came out with the entrees (the servers, not our primary, were apologetic). Server never checked in from the time we ordered until after we were finished eating. No drink refills. No how is your food. Sean, mgr, came to check in us finally. Overall disappointing experience. The only saving grace was the food was very good. We thought that Sean offered us a round of drinks to compensate—but no, they appeared on the bill.

The food was memorable and the service was friendly and welcoming. Took my wife and Mother in law here for Mother’s Day and they really enjoyed the fried green Tom with Lump crab! My favorite turned out to be the braised short ribs! Super Tender!

Ordered both the Cod and Scallops, but the Scallops were a bit on the salty side for my tastes.
