The place was pretty crowded, but the service was not too bad. The wings, even though well done was specified, were like rubber. An another night out we had apps at the bar and everything was great and the Bartenders were very good

I love to sit out on the back deck in the warmer months and by the fireplace when it is cold outside.

This is a pretty good restaurant. On pleasant days, it could be hard to get onto the deck. Unfortunately for everyone, if you arrive + or - a half hour from shift change service is terrible.

Less crowded on Sunday. Sat on the covered deck, took advantage of the burger and Bloody Mary specials, and had the best Key Lime pie ever. (Don't tell anyone from FL I said that) Would love to see the human Foosball game in action!More

Great service by Katie. Food was a little bland. Wish the fireplace was working - instead there was a draft from it.

Description
"McFaul's" provides an Irish undertone and a subtle insight into the atmosphere and cuisine we will provide. "IRONHORSE" was a term used by Native Americans to describe locomotives and will emphasize the Ma & Pa Railroad heritage. "IRONHORSE" is also a reference to Maryland's sports legends; dedicated men who worked hard and gave all that they had for the success of our local teams. These iron horses include Johnny Unitas, Art Donavan, Bill Pellington, Brook Robinson, Cal Ripken, Eddie Murray and Ernie Tyler. The word "Tavern" fits the setting quite well and describes a comfortable place with time-honored recipes, friendly service and a unique selection of spirits. The decor throughout the entire restaurant is of Irish and Old English influence. Unique themes and motifs are used in each designated area. The first, or front, dining room has a fireplace and serves as a tribute to Baltimore County and the location's rich past. Vintage pictures and interesting local art provide a bit of history and traditional warmth for our main IRONHORSE dining room. The second, or side, dining room will is named the "Baltimore" room. This area showcases photographs by Aubrey Bodine, Baltimore's famous pictorialist. It will also serve as our "Media" and "Event" room. The Baltimore room can be rented for corporate meetings and wedding rehearsal dinners. This area naturally flows into the deck area and when combined with our deck bar, will serve as a great place to have a "private" event. The third, or back, dining area is called the the Loch "Raven" Room. This bar area has an adequate dining space as well as a eighteen person bar that houses four large HD televisions. This room specifically showcases Loch Raven history and the Baltimore Ravens. The Loch "Raven" Bar has autographed Ravens photos and unique memorabilia that makes it the best place to watch Baltimore's favorite pastime. The outside deck area, when weather permits, is primarily used for outdoor dining. It can be used as a secondary bar and as an optional "private" bar area for events and rental parties. All of these rooms tie into each other and juxtaposed accordingly showcase Maryland's rich history as well as the location's unique attributes. I feel McFaul's IRONHORSE Tavern at Sander's Corner will become a place to relax and enjoy great food and spirits."
