A fantastic bartender whose always got a smile. Good basic bar food and reasonable prices. Great atmosphere. There is a quieter room in the back that can be used for small events. Quiet enough to have a conversation. All age groups feel comfortable.

Slow night, staff not super responsive. I like bisques and cream soups so I tried the Award Winning Cream of Crab soup. It was overly salty, beyond seafood salty. Not impressed at all.

Being from Towson MD, I love The Raven on tap. I was pleasantly surprised to see it here. Good sandwiches with large portions and great service. I had the shrimp salad and my hubby had the reuben.

The crab cake, crab soup, salmon sandwiches, chicken and dumplings are all amazing. Great service, wonderful atmosphere. I eat here every time I'm in town and take all of my visitors and guests here because they demand the soup.
