On November 8th I am going to turn this into The Howard County Maryland Restaurant Blog.
I hope to gain 50 lbs and free meals at some of Howard County’s best restaurants.
Seriously, I expect a slow day today, but I have been wondering where are some of the best places to hang out in Howard County for food or beverages.
Drop a comment and include a URL. Tell us what they serve, what the atmosphere is like, and why you go there.
For example, when I lived in Baltimore City my favorite place was The Brewers Art. It is in an old townhouse on Charles Street that is almost practically original and beautiful. They are a brew pub and have great beers of their own as well as a beer menu to die for. The dinner and bar menus are great too. An awesome place to hit before heading to the Meyerhoff. They have a basement bar that is like a catacomb. Low ceilings, brick walls, and it is all cut up into private spots. Warning: They don’t serve Guinness.
I liked these places a lot too
The Cats Eye Pub – great music in a friendly dive on Thames Street in Fells Point. Guinness on tap.
J. Patrick’s – Andre Street in Locust Point. A true neighborhood dive popular with the Irish Community for their Thursday evening Irish dancing. Sit down for a pint and some live Irish music might break out. This place won’t last much longer as the owner is getting pretty old. Don’t expect a fancy pub. Expect really friendly people.
The Daily Grind on Thames Street in Fells point until they renovated it.
