Had 6:15 PM reservations arrived at 6:10 PM. We were seated at the high top as per our reservation. It took 10 minutes before we were acknowledged by a server to get our drink order. Our food took over 25 minutes to arrive at our table after giving the order to our server. The food was warm upon arrival as if it had been waiting to be served to us. My husband ordered the filet and I had the scallops. Food was tasty but I do not believe we will be returning any time soon.

Our service was friendly and prompt. EXCEPT - On Open Table I specifically noted that one person in our party was strictly gluten free. No one asked us about this - did anyone at the restaurant even see this? AND our friend's salad had bread croutons. He did not make a fuss - just took them out of the salad.

Also - My husband and our friends had wonderful dinners. Mine, however, was not hot at all. When it was taken back and "warmed" it was still was hardly warm. (Shrimp and grits). That was disappointing.

I was glad we could be in a room without TV screens.

It’s a good place for casual bar food. Think Baldwin’s had a more sophisticated menu/chef/kitchen.

For Easter
We had to ask for butter and jelly that were requested with the biscuit. My toast was not delivered with my eggs and it was cold and hard when I go it. No salt and pepper and had to ask for them.
Reserved a table outside and were originally seated on the enclosed platform but after asking we were seated out on the deck.

Brussel sprouts could be be smelled strongly throughout the dining room and that is not a smell most people enjoy. Appetizer menu was a disaster of strange and unique favors. Too much fish all through the menu.

Food and service very good, as always. Very cold in the enclosed area, staff did not think to turn on the heaters until we were about to leave. Sat at the table with our heavy coats on the whole time.
Beer menu could have more variety as well - too many "light" beers.

Enjoyed the food and drinks, but the waitress we had didn't serve us well. Not friendly or checking if we needed. But with the help of the owners we were taken care of. Management was wonderful and very friendly.

First time visiting since it became Sykesville Station. I had the scallops with sage butter and sweet potatoes as well as a salad with their homemade pomegranate vinaigrette. Literally the best meal I’ve ever had. I made sure to ask my server to please tell the chef. Incredible food and service. I can’t wait to go again.

One of our absolute favorite places in the area to dine! It was our first time dining indoors since the pandemic, so it was a tad on the loud side and we could barely hear our waitress or each other (and there were 4 of us) but, the service was good, the food was delicious and we do love it there. Can't wait for the weather to warm up a little so we can go back to outdoor dining!

It was an okay experience. We scheduled a reservation for Friday night. I was surprised, the service was very slow. When we went to investigate, our server was chatting with the bartender. It took more than an hour from the time we sat down to the time we got our meals and probably would have been longer if we didn't go ask what was going on. Not the best if you are sitting in the covered porch area and your teeth are chattering from the cold. I ordered a coffee at the end of the meal and the server forgot to bring it until they rang up the bill - coffee came with the check. The food was okay; nothing to write home about and expensive for what you get. I probably won't go back.
