I am a railroad buff, and writer. I was here to visit a model train display so I did the restaurant too. A sign said that it was the best restaurant in Maryland. I say that they lived up to the name.

Three out of 6 of us got the shrimp & grits from the restaurant week menu. The grits seemed considerably undercooked IMO. Our waitress, Liz, checked with the chef. She reported “that’s the way they are always prepared”. If that’s the case, an explanation of...More

Baldwin's Station is a great place to get a well prepared meal using interesting ingredients. They have preserved the atmosphere of the train station and depot that it once was. If you are seated outdoors in the summer, you may even be "treated" to a...More

This is a good place for a business lunch, you can actually have a conversation, unless you eat outside in the summer - trains go by regularly. They have lunch specials at reasonable prices and the service is very good. Deserts are excellent.

I always love coming to Baldwin’s Station. It is such a unique atmosphere. I like that there is a variety on the menu- you can get something more expensive or get a small plate (which isn’t a small portion size at all- you leave full)....More

I've been wanting to try this place for a while, but now it's off my list. Farmed salmon and shrimp meant not options for me. The brie appetizer was bland, at best. The strawberries looked liked sliced fresh, frozen and then defrosted. Blah. Mushroom bisque...More
