  • The Woodstock Inn
    When the tavern opened its doors in 1831 at a depot nestled along the B&O Railroad, the owners didn't know that one day its rooms would shake to the sounds of classic rock. The Woodstock Inn bridges two worlds; though it serves as a showcase for local singer songwriters, country musicians, and classic-rock quarters, it also champions the town's and area's histories. On the dining room walls, mounted jockeys' jerseys recall decades of equestrian sport, photos depict downtown Woodstock in older times, and display cases hold pieces of Harley-Davidson memorabilia. Outside, a hitching post awaits riders bringing their horses in from surrounding riding trails, which were reportedly laid in the 1600s by local Native Americans. Chef Pedro Fajardo and his kitchen crew also draw from local heritage to create a menu filled with regional comfort food such as crab cakes, blackened tuna, and cheesesteak sandwiches. Chefs assemble their core menu and weekly specials from local ingredients, frequently using beef from an Ellicott City farm, bread from a Baltimore bakery, and tomatoes from the tavern owner's farm down the street. Servers ferry these dishes, along with local microbrews such as Flying Dog and Heavy Seas, on trips around pool tables and between rustic wood-paneled walls. The space fills with music during open-mic nights on Tuesdays; live acoustic karaoke on Wednesday; and live country, blues, and classic rock on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

  • Loafers Sports Bar and Grill
    Jovial crowds of sports fans line the wooden bars and maroon booths at both Loafers Sports Bar and Grill locations to unwind with cool brews and a tasty spread of seafood and pub eats. Flat-screen TVs broadcast football games for die-hard sports enthusiasts and Antiques Roadshow reruns for appraisal fanatics as they enjoy burgers and plates of wings, nachos, and potato skins. Chef Joe Rocco packs jumbo lumps of meat into his crab cakes and steams pots of crabs year-round to complement pints and the Big Loaf beer, a 1-liter pour of draft ale. A variety of nightly events draw in revelers with specials, karaoke, and live DJs, as opposed to old computers programmed to play "Glory Days" in binary.

  • Lansdowne Inn
    The Lansdowne Inn makes comfort food with a nautical twist its signature. Chefs fry fish and chips in a Guinness-laced batter, paint sweet chili sauce on fried coconut shrimp, and stir local crab into bowls of bisque. When it's time for dinner, entrees steal the show with well-loved, crowd-pleasing recipes that range from orange roughy to clams, but meat lovers aren't forgotten. Pork chops, liver and onions, and Maryland-style fried chicken keep guests fueled for the night's next chapter, while sandwiches and pizza address casual-fare cravings and the desire to eat all meals with your hands.

  • Diamondback Tavern
    Built by a group of friends interested in camaraderie, cold drinks, and good food, Diamondback Tavern aims to put a contemporary spin on a traditional Maryland tavern, and its pub menu has earned accolades from the Baltimore Sun and Howard Magazine. Wrangling local meats, seafood, produce, and bread, the staff builds fresh sandwiches filled with garlic-braised pulled pork and caramelized bananas, crab-cake platters loaded with two 5-ounce jumbo lump crab cakes, and veggie risotto topped with grilled portobello. Behind the bar, chilled local and domestic brews and sangria blended from a family recipe cleanse palates and put out fires after fire-eating competitions gone wrong. Diners enter under a traditional hanging tavern sign emblazoned with a brown diamondback-turtle shell before nestling into a spacious sports bar or dining room. Diamondback Tavern also hosts open-mic nights and screening events around NFL games to keep ears and eyes entertained as mouths gnaw on the minimalist, modern decor.
