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!

Disappointed that over-seasoning masked flavor of lambchops and shrimp. Unfortunate.

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!

The food was exceptional. We ended up sitting at the bar even though I had reserved a table. It was a good choice because the bartender was great and very knowledgable about the beer selection.

Dining experience was good. Ambiance and food very good. However, our waitress seemed a bit confused with the billing process without cause. It was explained to our waitress that the check should have been split among 2 separate credit cards and that did not happen. It was not until my friend and I left the restaurant that the error was discovered.

The Towson Tavern is very nice. Our waitress was very good but too busy. Our drinks went dry during dinner and that’s a pet peeve of mine. I don’t feel that should ever happen in a restaurant. Food was good but prices were a bit too high.

Food was exquisite. I had one of the daily specials. The pan seared Halibut was cooked just perfectly. I’ll be going back to try other dishes soon. I have had the Filet before and it was just as good. What a treat!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Towson Tavern this past Sunday ! We got the brussel sprouts, fried green tomatoes and bacon wrapped scallops for apps which were all DELICIOUS. And then split a burger and the beet salad for entrees. The beet salad was by far the best salad I have had in a very long time. The burger was cooked perfectly and the bacon jam on top was drool worthy.
We will definitely be back!

This was my second time coming here but my fiancé’s first time. The food is always spectacular I never have any issues pertaining to that. However, this time my service was a bit Mediocre. I had two different people serving me so I’m not sure which one was our actual server . We placed our order for our meals and drinks but after receiving the food nobody came back to check for refills, if the meal was okay or anything. The manager was walking around so I able to flag him down to ask for what I needed. Great food but ok service, customer service is everything! It’s what brings the guest back every time.

Such a nice dinner! Never sat in the side dining room and really enjoyed it, especially decorated for the holidays. We enjoyed our meal from drinks, to apps, to entrees. Our server was excellent and other staff/management came by to check in on us as well, which was nice! If they have the bacon wrapped scallops available when you go, order them!
