Friday and Saturday nights are always fun. They have good, local bands with a great crowd response and energy. The food is good, moderately priced and being a small, privately held restaurant, it has a wonderful personal feel.

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.

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
