Arundel Mills is a big place but we found parking right near the restaurant. The eatery is located near an outside door so we didn’t have to traverse through the mall. It was lunch time, on the Friday after Christmas, and though the restaurant was fairly busy but we had no wait for a table. The server was prompt to take our drink and food orders. The non-smoking restaurant was a nice place to enjoy lunch and some good local beer.
Nice enough craft beer restaurant offshoot of a pretty decent Maryland brewery. Of course good luck finding parking at Arundel Mills! They seem to have most of the regular as well as specialty beers you’d find at the brewery. The food is decent enough (only had the appy’s). Nice outside courtyard...for a mall of course...lol! Nice stop if at the mall or close by...but not for a special trip...save that for the brewery.
Back for the first time in a while, and fairly disappointing. No tap list provided, had to rely on a waitress who was supposed to tell me what beer I wanted based on what style I like. And then she didn’t know what was on tap and came back twice with regrets about not having a beer I requested. The beer I got was fine, but based on the receipt one time it wasn’t even what I ordered. Given the prices not providing much value, mall ambiance, and now this, I don’t expect to return.
Been here a few times to meet up with friends in the area. Decent sized bar area with a dining area separated in the next room. Service was friendly enough on my visits. Good selection of DuClaw’s beers on draft. Food is mostly pub fare, kind of hit or miss. Kinda pricey. Don’t know if I’d go out of my way fighting through mall traffic but an okay stop if you’re meeting friends or need something else in the mall.
Been here a few times over the years. Decent place to get a DuClaw brew and your standard chain restaurant style food (burgers, fries, Caesar salad, etc.) Staff has always been friendly and accommodating. Down side is Arundel Mills, unless you are Walter White you are going to want to park close and have your wits about you when traversing the parking lot and mall.
Sports barrish atmosphere with very friendly service. Nice 5 oz option for the tickers...no guest beers but lots of Duclaw options. Didn’t eat but the menu looked like it offered lots of tasty sandwiches.
