Towson Tavern Ratings and Reviews
We came in to celebrate my birthday, it was a table of 4. From the minute we opened the door we felt warmly welcomed. The host was polite and friendly. Sally our server was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. As far as the food goes we were all blown away. The other couple we were with are extreamly picky and they loved everything. Chef Josh is truly one of the best in the game. If you haven’t had a chance to go I highly recommend it. Why go to the city when you have Towson Tavern.
This was our second Christmas Eve there. Last year was fine. This year was the food was so bad it was sad. Steaks raw, lamb chops small and burned, potatoes not cooked, etc. The waitress knew what was going on in the kitchen and didn’t care. Shawn, the GM, did his best to recuse the situation...... but it was a joke. I hope the brothers can get it straight. Start with a new kitchen staff!!
Lots of special things on this menu; Appetizers of lamb meatballs & tuna tartare are not to be missed. Main courses of steak and cast iron chicken are amazing. Menu is seasonal and local- and really worth the trip. The chef has talent for sure; the bar needs a better program to match the food.
Had a post-Thanksgiving family get together. Group of 5. After our experience I would say that it went VERY WELL and everyone left satisfied. That is a feat considering we had couple people in our group who very rarely try anything new and are very picky. The menu was great because it had plenty of new and exciting things to try but also some simple classic dishes that made it easy to find something for everyone. In particular, the HOG WINGS were a table favorite. Scallops and Grits were another hit - the scallops were huge! I had the Pork Bolognese and loved it. The atmosphere on the dining side of the restaurant was great because it is a little more subdued than the bar side so it was perfect and had really lovely decor. I'd definitely go back again soon!
First timer to Towson Tavern. Had a business lunch interview and the experience was great. Service was fantastic, and not to invasive to allow for conversation. Noise level was appropriate for lunch conversation. Sandwiches were hearty and reasonably priced. Shrimp salad was delicious.
Only downside is parking. However, lots are ample and close by so we found a lot with an open spot with a short walk.
An upscale local find! Fresh, clean architectural style, professional servers/ support staff, valet parking: as to menu, very creative offerings, meats, pasta , salads, can be prepared gluten free . Small plates, share items, and full entrees were all quality ingredients attractively presented. Try the Duck Fat popcorn appetizer. Quality wine glasses and china for a local "pub"/ dining room a plus.
We have been long time diners at Towson Tavern and this was the first disappointing experience we had. Appetizers and salad was lovely. Both my husband and I ordered the short rib. Sadly it very dry and bland. We left most on our plates...odd that the server did not even notice...
We had a lovely meal at Towson Tavern. Our server, Sally (sp?) was terrific: attentive and helpful. We began with the French onion soup, which was very good, but just a bit on the salty side. For dinner, my husband had the chophouse salad, which he enjoyed. One of our guests had a burger, which is usually only served at lunch, but the chef made it for her anyway and she said it was very good. Our other guest had the salmon, which he ate with great relish. My dinner was the 6 oz beef tenderloin which was cooked perfectly, very well seasoned with a lovely sear on the outside. The gratin potatoes that accompanied my dinner were tasty, but the potatoes could have been just a little softer for my taste. All in all, we were very pleased with our meal choices and with Towson Tavern! We will definitely be back......
Our food was very good during this night out. I had a pasta with fresh mushrooms and it was outstanding. Great flavor and rich, but not too heavy. Everyone in our group (four of us) liked their meals....and the wine by the glass was an interesting mix. I have been there many times, but this was the best yet.
Sitting in a table near the bar during happy hour can be noisy,but it was not unreasonable.
The menu had a wide variety of wonderful choices and we were not disappointed.
Service was top notch, attentive but not obtrusive.
I highly recommend Towson Tavern.
Tried the Tavern on a recommendation from a coworker. She raved about the French Onion soup but evidently that's a seasonal offering and we didn't get to try it!! Oh, well-the rest of the food was very good and the service was great. The complimentary valet parking is a plus since there is usually none in this part of Towson! Well worth a try and the Blood Orange Margarita was a hit!!!
Definitely much more creative than "pub grub" as the name "Tavern" implies. Totally creative menu (and bar), each dish (I LOVED the "Chicketta" - unique - menu didn't mention chicken "wrapper" was initially cooked sous vide - waiter told us that) was prepared with top-notch care and ingredients AND preparation. While the entrée prices seemed steep at first for a Tavern, the carefully created/selected sides and salads that come with the entrees make them a good value.
Loved the place!!!! Loved the food. Drinks were excellent!!!
