I was looking for somewhere new to eat, when I stumbled upon this little gem. We walked in and it was a very "homie" place. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. I've visited this place several times and it was just as good as the first time.

We had about 25 people and the service for a group that size was as good as I have ever seen. The wait staff was organized and efficient.The food arrived promptly and orders were correct. The food is typical of a suburban bar and grill. Everyone in our group was pleased with their meals My fish tacos were excellent!

We just visited for the first time and will definitely be back. We were greeted by an extremely friendly hostess. We had no idea what to try so our friendly waitress gave us some great suggestions. We tried a steak and spicy dip entree and the thai chicken salad---both were delicious. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Every worker we... More

We stopped here for a quick bite and drink. Gabby our bartender/server was so friendly and engaging. We ordered salad, soup, and fries and had a few beers. Everything was very good. The other customers at the bar were locals and very friendly. We would definitely stop back if we were in Old Bowie.

Arrived a few minutes late and were promptly shown to our table. Our server was there within seconds!! We ordered drinks while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. We were seated downstairs as there was live music upstairs and this was a business dinner so be able to talk and hear made this location perfect. The server... More

One of my closest friends lives nearby so I passed this cool establishment often without going in. Finally, last Saturday, I was in the area and had nothing pressing to do so... It was so good! And it wasn't merely that the food was good or the PumpkinAle really tasted like pumpkin, it was that everyone, from the bar staff... More

We live in Bowie and moved here about the time the OBTG (as it's known) opened. The owner is very friendly and looks out for her guests. The staff is attentive and makes sure the guests are taken care of properly. The menu is diverse with something for everyone. The menu is primarily American style but they do offer some... More

My wife and I have been customers for years and really appreciate the atmosphere, the family who runs the place and of course the food. They have two bars (one downstairs and one upstairs), an outside roof deck and live music at night. Lots of regulars and repeat customers plus they are open for lunch.
