This is an old established restaurant in old Bowie. The food and service is terrific. We usually go there to split an osso buco, which is always terrific. I know few restaurants that even have a "pot roast" like this. One night a week is...More

Good variety and preparation. Service good. A popular place with the locals; ambiance is O. K. It fits in with the local population and is an accepted eat spot within its area. Not really a gourmet place but it is satisfactory.

The food is just amazing, and the service is even better. From the ownership to the employees everyone there will become like a member of your family

We've eaten here many, many times. Food is pretty average & on the pricey side (with a few exceptions - the rib special is very good!). Probably the best thing about OBTG is that it's locally owned & operated and has a friendly atmosphere. Would...More

A little on the pricey side and options are kinda slim, but what they make and serve is really good. Some nights they have live music upstairs and a more quieter option downstairs

It's pretty far from Harvre de Grace, but I'm sure someone at the Grill would be happy to give you the best, most direct route. Their number is: 301-464-8800
