Great stop on York Rd for a quick bite and a beer (or wine or cocktail). Fun atmosphere and super staff!

On our last visit to Maryland my fiancé and I drove to Hightopps to meet 4 friends for a few drinks. When we are in town we often visit Hightopps for drinks with local friends (I have never been impressed with the food), especially in the summer when we can enjoy the outside bars. We are from out of state... More

Had dinner, lunch and drinks at 3 different times while spending time North of Baltimore. The food was very good pub food and the drinks were reasonably priced. Friday and Saturday's they have live music in a few different venues. Service is good and friendly. Location with plenty of parking is a plus.

There was a Ravens game the day we visited this sports restaurant. Service was very poor mostly because our server was overwhelmed by the huge number of tables she had. She was friendly. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for the young hostess who showed us to are table. She was completely disinterested and I am sure she hates her... More

It was a very nice day so we choose to sit outside for lunch. The service was very slow as the waitress was stressed because she had to cover so many tables. She kept apologizing. They really need to address the service issue. The food was good.

We've driven by here more times than I can count. It's right on York Rd next door to the fairgrounds. We would drive by here and scoff, because it lacks strong curb appeal. I should not have been so quick to judge. We went here tonight for the first time, and this is a very good place. It has bar... More

Came to eat dinner real late (10PM) on a Saturday. The outside stage and bar area are clearly the place to go and I'll return. Mediocre beer selection (if you don't like the usual) but nice varied menu with decent prices. Our server Beth was attentive and very responsive. The kitchen made some excellent food albeit very slow. If you... More

We've been to Hightops many times. We've gone for dinner, drinks, parties, a reunion and just to hang out on the back deck. The atmosphere is loud and there are always nice people to meet.
