This is my go-to place for package goods on Sunday, when most other places are not allowed to sell them (it's a weird Maryland "blue" law). They have an area that is basically a liquor store, and then there is a bar in the back where they serve drinks and you can order food. Have never sat there or tried... More

We would suggest you stay far away from this bar unless you want to be treated like a second class citizen. The moment we walked in and took our seats at the bar the regulars looked at us real hard. The food is bad and the bartenders are not friendly and will not engage you in a conversation. We were... More

We only went here to see a local band. The place is very small but we arrived early enough to get a table. There is no wait staff so you have to go to the bar to order food and drinks. I read other reviews that the crab cakes were delicious and they were. However, food and drinks were pricey... More

Very nice laid back bar. All good people there, and they make you feel at home. I had the steamed shrimp and I give it a 5 star review. If you want to go hangout at a good home town bar restaurant, check out The Town Tavern.

The decor...what decor? This place is about as plain as it gets. It's a regular's hang-out so you know it's good. Especially on Fridays and Saturdays when they do their brisket...WOW! Talk about "melt-in-your-mouth tender!" I've got to try the crab cakes because I hear they're really good too. Absolutely nutin' fancy, just really good food and drink at very... More

Cheap drinks, plenty of TV's. One thing is that all the bartenders are old men. So, I feel like i'm in my uncle's basement. Still, the prices and take out beer makes up for it. Keno seemed to be a big thing, too.
