Took a chance on this one after an Antietam Battlefield visit. Well worth the stop. Great crab cakes. Staff friendly.
My biggest complaint about Bonnie's is lack of cleanliness. I didn't see the kitchen, but the bathroom was gross, the floors and baseboards in the dining area were dirty, and there were globs of dust on the ceiling near vents and fans. Also, they appeared to be violating rules about refilling condiment containers. My other complaint is the quality of the food. The potatoes were instant potato flakes! I don't think I've had instant potatoes since the cafeteria line in elementary school. We even got real potatoes in the military! Geez. The stewed tomatoes were syrupy sweet and mostly indistinguishable from ketchup. The fried chicken was nothing special. Before we left, we tried the red velvet cake, which they are apparently "known for." The cake itself was below average - my local grocery store bakes better - and the icing was gelatinous with a whipped nothing taste rather than the rich cream cheese flavor I was hoping for.
We've been going to the Red Byrd since our girls were tiny...and they're 23 & 27 now. The Red Byrd is just a plain good local restaurant, located between Boonsboro & Antietam Battlefield, with that small town diner feel. (A lot of the same people eat here every day!!) They serve everything from a hearty stick to your ribs breakfast, to sandwiches & an AYCE special almost every night of the week. Their spaghetti & their fried chicken are super YUM!! If you enjoy hearty country good to ya food...make sure you stop here!! They also serve some dang good desserts!!
