About the restaurant
18th & 21st brings something fresh and classic to Columbia, Maryland. Named after the Constitutional Amendment that enacted Prohibition and then subsequent Amendment that repealed it, 18th & 21st promises to bring back a bygone era through an elevated, tailored evening experience. Our food and cocktails reflect the feel of prohibition supper clubs. This not to say we're stuck in the past, but rather that we try and emulate the style of that era. That means beautiful presentation, careful crafting, and perfect pairings to keep your night on beat. Combined with live music, this creates an unparalleled experience for the discerning and adventurous looking for a sophisticated evening. Due to the nature of the experience at 18th & 21st we request that all diners be over the age of eighteen.

Great time as usual. We were fortunate to have Angel as our server again; she wasn't supposed to be there but was covering for someone. We did not try the specials, but our starters and entrees from the regular menu were perfectly prepared. The musical guest made for the perfect accompaniment to the meal. Finally, first time coming in on a Sunday night and pleasantly surprised the place was nearly packed and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

We had a few cocktails and some food. We ordered the crab dip and had creme Brule for dessert. They were both good and would order them again. I had a southside (off drink menu item) and asked our server for a gin recommendation and he chose well. My drink had that nice mint flavor I was looking for.

Easton
About the restaurant
The Stewart is an intimate bar-and-lounge in the heart of Easton, MD, with an unparalleled focus on the very finest of single malt Scotch whiskeys and vintage Champagnes. Upon entrance, guests are transported to a sphere of sheer refinement and spirit sophistication where one of the most impressive assemblages of Scotch in America is gloriously ensconced in the eloquent Federal Street enclave. An elegant evening progresses in an atmosphere of updated and distinguished Highland splendor: gleaming dark woods, handsomely refurbished period seating, gilt-framed oil paintings of Highland scenes, an intricately pargeted plaster ceiling, and, naturally, tartans galore. A crackling fire in the cooler months provides cozy ambient undertones within an 18th century walnut and brass trumeau chimney.

This has become my favorite restaurant in Lewes over the past few years. The only thing better than the food is the service. 5 ⭐️ all the way!

We dine at Osprey Point often because of the great combination of service, ambiance and, of course, the food. The regular menu is well rounded and there's something for pretty much everybody. Weekly specials add variety and use locally available seasonal ingredients. We will be back!
