This place is amazing! The food was fresh, hot, and delicious. Everyone at our table was pleased with their meals. Our party was large so we were at three separate tables, with three separate servers but everyone had fantastic, friendly service. I highly recommend this...More

We had a pre-tubing lunch here on a Friday around noon—no issues with seating (though it filled up right quick once the morning tubing session across the street got back). Staff was friendly, helpful and prompt with a great sense of humor. For diet soda...More

The Guide House was directly across the street from the Knights Inn in Knoxville, MD. The food was excellent, the staff very friendly. It's a local joint, and we were there toward closing on a Saturday night, so the noise level was up there. They...More

Stopped in with a large group of 9 for lunch. They were filled to capacity but made accommodations for us. Not 1 person left disappointed. From Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs to Crab Mac and Gouda Cheese everything was excellent. Must stop!

Outside looks like average fare country restaurant. Inside: tasty cocktails; spiral zucchini noodles- excellent. Steak with shrimp - delicious. Spicy shrimp appetizer- delicious. Only negative: wine list in serious need of upgrading.

Sat night about 6 pm the 15 to 20minute wait turned into thirty min. Two of us had fish and chips, fish good but eclipsed by coleslaw. Service polite but they were obviously stretch thin. Nice cozy atmosphere but call ahead for seating for evening...More

The setting is nice. We’ve had a much better experience here for Italian nite in the past. Menu is extremely limited with little healthy options. The “bruschetta” was not bruschetta and not very good. It was freezing inside. The menu says wild caught salmon, a...More
