We have ordered from here a few times recently. They always get it right and make it fast. If you haven't tried the thin crust, you are missing out. Thin with chicken and sliced sausage...awesome. Brooklyn style crust isn't really Brooklyn style but it is much closer to Brooklyn style than regular crust...also tastes better than regular crust. Online ordering works great. Their iPad app allows you to configure the pizza, apply coupons, and pay online. Once you pay, you get a screen that progresses automatically as the pizza is prep'd, made, baked, and ready. Pretty cool. I think it works the same way even if you just order from via your web browser.

Perfect medium rare pit beef. Delicious coleslaw. Regular size fries enough for two adult. Nice ambient. Overall very satisfied. Will be back to try the other offering in the menu for sure.
After living in the area for several years, my family finally decided to try this place out. On the recommendations of others on yelp we tried the pit beef, which was good though nothing special. The ribs were drenched in an over powering sauce, but it's a darn good thing they were because the ribs themselves were dry and totally without flavor. A portion of then were so tough we were unable to eat them. The pulled pork tasted like it came out of a can. It was entirely inedible. Of the menu items we tried, the pit beef and the fries were the only things passable. But the beef is worth a return trip.
Large pit beef is one of the best that I have had. Huge pile of super tender pit beef. The regular fry is huge! Local private owners that support local sports teams.Just the kind of place that I like to support. TRY IT OUT!

Always have a good experience when I come here. Food is fast, fresh, and the staff is very nice and helpful. They have never made a mistake on an order either!
I am always a sucker for a good trip to Chic-Fil-A and have been ad avid eater there for about 3 years now. This visit, I attended this CFA on National Cow Appreciation Day and wore all black and a cow t-shirt in order to get myself a free chicken sandwich. Although the restaurant was packed and the line was almost out the door, this location did not disappoint. Servers and those working the floor were everywhere, filling up drinks and being pleasant as always. When I got to the front of the line, i was ecstatic to find out i qualified to a free meal and got a lemonade and some waffle fries. The meal was as always fabulous and I enjoyed my spicy chicken sandwich to the last bite. When my friend and I were finishing our meal, a staff came over and informed us there was a photobooth outside and that the Chic-Fil-A cow would be appearing soon. The outside was set up for the celebration and I had a great time taking a photo booth pic and getting to see the classic Chic-Fil-A cow. Overall- I am very impressed with how this restaurant handled the rush of people that came out for this day and their staff deserves so much credit for feeding so many cows! PS- love the free wifi here!
I wish i could give this negative stars. My coworkers and I decided to do carry out to celebrate a coworkers last day. We work a solid 20 minutes away without traffic, so usually 25 minutes after getting stuck behind some dump trucks on the one-laned 32. I ordered 8 things on one receipt- salad, twelve pack, twelve pack, chicken sandwich, deluxe spicy meal, deluxe spicy meal, sandwich, and another twelve pack. I waited on the side and they brought me rather quickly two large bags. I already had the drinks and I asked if it was all there- the teen assured me it was. On a time crunch, I did not double check and left. I drove back to the office only to find they had FORGOTTEN THREE MEALS. Not just perhaps one falling through the cracks, but THREE....two of the twelve pack nuggets and a sandwich. This is just poor service. I call the number listed on their google page to try and talk to someone...it RINGS AND HANGS UP on you. Ok weird....I call a different number listed on their Facebook page...SAME THING! But I am determined and now super pissed. I FINALLY get through- to a manager nonetheless- and he barely apologies for the phone issue and the food issue. He says if I come back, he'll give me the food. Nothing else. He blames the phones for not working on an employee dropping one into a bucket of water- not surprised. I drive back- another twenty-ish minutes lost. I get there and no manager will speak to me- instead, the teen who messed up my bag in the first place asks me what items were missing and then hands them to me. I asked to see the manager and he said he was busy. What a poor excuse for customer service. John the manager- I will never be using this Chick Fil A agian and I will surely be talking to corporate.

This place is awesome... The food is yummy and the atmosphere is very inviting. It doesn't seem like there is a diversity of customers but I've only been once and stayed for about 7hours. Anyway I like it and even the takeout staff is friendly. Going again? Hummm! Yup Reviewer
YES! This place is so cool! Yesterday was our first time being here after finding it on YELP of course. seriously had a great time and with great FOOD most importantly. Brittany took good care of us. We had shots, beer and food and most importantly CRABS. Everything is so yummy. If in the area again I would definitely return. This place has lots of options of seating so we sat on the deck and just had a great time.
Great specials throughout the week so check their website for deals AND coupons! Crabs are usually part of specials. Dine in and carryout specials available. Crab pretzel is highly recommended and their wings are good!!

Today's brunch was OK, good/OK even, but not as great as I had hoped. Got the fried green tomato eggs Benedict. I was really excited about this veg option, so perhaps that's why I wasn't as impressed with the food as I hoped to be. The FGTs were kind of flavorless. It needed salt, which did bring out a bit more flavor in the tomato crust, but the tomato itself might as well have not been there at all. So, without that, it was just a poached egg and English muffin. The hollandaise was not a rich/thick as I like, but the egg was cooked beautifully. The home fries were ok as well, but there's something about them (can't quite put my finger on it) that kept them from being amazing. Maybe it's that they were very soft and not at all crispy/crunchy and I missed that texture you want from home fries? My friend enjoyed her meal, especially the bloody Mary's!! Lol
Mother's Day Brunch 2015 - disappointing..... Food quality/taste slipping badly. While the service is still quality, the food was disappointing and while I may not have read the advertisements, thought this was their regular Jazz Brunch weekend, so was expecting that and it was not to be. My wife had the fried green tomato benedict and the fried green tomatoes were surely not made fresh, rather looked like frozen or certainly from a box and tasted similarly. The normally great home fries were off putting as well with a strange taste. We have had them before and loved them, but the batch we had was not eaten by 4 of the 5 of us. I had the Irish Trucker (corned beef/home fries in a bowl with your choice of egg on top) breakfast. Ordered my eggs over easy so you get that nice runny yolk to blend in while eating... Eggs arrived over hard and looked that way upon arrival. The corned beef hash was very dry and the poor taste of the home fries mixed in, also dry, was not palatable. I did get replacement eggs that were over easy, but had already suffered through half the bowl and while they helped, it was too little too late. My daughter ordered a fruit bowl side and it consisted of 80% Granny Smith apple that was browning, along with a very few raspberries and two strawberries. Pretty sad fruit bowl. Unfortunately, this is the second meal in a row that was disappointing, so not sure what has changed in the kitchen over the past couple of months, but they need to get the food quality back quickly or I'll not be returning there anytime soon.
I have been yesterday with my boy-friend and it was an amazing experience. Polite waiters, very cozy and beautiful environment with different assortment of wines and delicious food. We will go there again! And to mention they have live music on saturdays!!!!

I doubt anyone will ever read this, because I don't think half the people in Carroll County use computers, but.... I have yet to eat at a bad Panera, and this place is no exception. They are all very clean, quick, and very tasty. Last night, I had their new salad, the Thai Chopped Chicken Salad. It has a beastly Chili Vinaigrette that came to party with your taste buds whether you like it or not. Very spicy! It has some delicious edamame and carrots on it that were really good.
You can pretty much expect the same thing at each Panera which is good if you don't like surprises and you are craving a specific menu item. This Panera is good. It is laid out nicely with a combination of booths, tables and high tops. The restaurant is clean and quick. By the time I placed my order and made it back towards the pickup, it was ready. Service was pleasant. The food was consistent and tasty. It's a great place to stop in for a coffee, breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, etc. It's also a great place for road warriors looking to grab a bite to eat and catch up on some work. BTW, I had to laugh at John S' review that no one would read his review. People from other places may end up in Carroll County and want a clean place with free WIFI.
Not normally a person who dines at Panera, but I was visiting a friend and it was his call. We grabbed breakfast sandwiches and a dozen bagels. The place was clean, the workers were prompt and friendly, and bagels went down easy. I'd go back.

Reviews:
I have only eaten here for breakfast but my kids say the burgers are good also. I have never been disappointed in their breakfast. Usually get the scrapple and eggs platter but I have also enjoyed the western omelette. Normally I eat at the counter and service is great. When it is busy on a weekend you may have to wait a bit as there is usually only one cook (Mo).
The food is pretty basic, diner-type food, with no really special stand-out dishes, but very good all the same. Breakfast seems to be the best and can be ordered any time, though lunch is good too. The atmosphere is pretty relaxed and informal. The servers are friendly to the point of recognizing and welcoming us even though we eat there maybe once every couple of months or so. The wait time is usually very short, though it can be a bit longer when they're busy. Prices are reasonable. Seating arrangements are fairly comfortable for parties of 4. Larger groups may be able to join tables if they happen to arrive during a slightly slower time. This has become our go-to place for those weekend breakfasts when nobody feels like cooking.
Stopped in for breakfast. Service was very friendly, and the waitress seemed to know many of the customers by name. Food came out quick, and was well made with real ingredients. Price was a little above average compared to the Denny's up the street, but the food made the difference worth it. Real selling point for me, the only place in town with scrapple, and it's cooked properly. Plan to stop back next time I am in this town.

Grilled cheese is always the classic comfort food. The tomato soup is too chunky for my taste but also very delicious. There are few vegetarian options.
Great, quick place to grab grilled cheese. I love the crab and cheese sandwich! The portions are large and the staff its friendly. We will be coming back
Great grilled cheese sandwiches. Limited menu, but good fast casual eatery.

Captain Dan’s Crabhouse

2021 Liberty Road
Eldersburg, 21784
Reviews:
This has become our favorite place to go enjoy crabs. Ordered a dozen mediums and they threw in 4 more. They steam them when you order, so the crabs are always served hot. Have gone here 3 times this summer and the crabs were always full and very tasty. Have not gotten a bad one or an empty one yet. Had to knock off a star due to one visit when we had an awkward server who came to our table way too often and then said the exact same thing every time. It was ... strange. Despite that, we really like this place and plan to return regularly.
It was a little hard to find, mostly because the signage wasn't very clear or obvious. Once inside, there was further confusion, because the takeout counter service portion of the restaurant was separated from the dining room by a closed door. So we thought this was takeout only. Finally, once we were seated, we ordered a dozen of large crabs to split, a mountain of fried seafoods, and the crab chowder that did not disappoint. In fact, I think the crab chowder was the standout of the meal. With that said, the crabs were not bad either. Very fresh, large, and meaty. They even threw in a few extra ones for us as well. Atmosphere could have been better - I felt like i was at a school cafeteria - but I'd still recommend this place, especially if you live in the area.
Visited last night with Mrs. P and was disappointed. We had two soft drinks, a cup of chowder, and two platters (captains catch and 1/2 crab cake, 1/2 shrimp). While the $45 total isn't terribly unrealistic for seafood for two, the serving size and quality didn't quite match up. The seafood chowder was good and worth getting. The crab cakes, which were fried rather than broiled, were significantly smaller and of far less quality than a number of other central Maryland places such as G&M, etc. (less crab, more filler). The fried shrimp were fine as were the clams. The fried oysters weren't fresh. Overall, quality and quantity really need to improve for the cost. Would've been an a three star (just 'meh') but only for the bill.

Qdoba Mexican Grill

Reviews:
Four stars as a fast food Mexican food joint, not a four start sit down restaurant. The service is fast and helpful, the food hot and good for what it is. The restaurant is clean with a well stocked supply of hot sauces. The portions are pretty good, don't go here if you are on a diet, but the prices are commiserate with the portions.
I like the naked-carne-asada-burritos w/extra pico-de-gallo and extra guacamole. Lines can be long at lunch/dinner hours, but it does move quick. Prices are typical of fast food mexican-fusion. The staff was always friendly and happy.
Very good alternative to Chipotle, since there is none in the area. A little blander than Chipotle, but I've never disliked the food. Add a little Chipotle hot sauce and you're good to go!
