A Casual Fine Dining Experience

Our Story

The Towson Tavern, which opened in January of 2012, is a Scratch Kitchen with a globally inspired menu featuring the best locally grown & raised ingredients from the Maryland & Mid Atlantic region.

The restaurant's name pays homage to its Colonial precursor, which was a well loved watering hole for traveling farmers, run by Ezekiel Towson in the 1760s.

Our Menu

The Tavern serves a menu of ever evolving and unique American regional cuisine along side a premium line of wine, spirits, and an extensive craft beer selection. The Tavern is proud to be a locally sourced, farm to table restaurant, featuring ingredients from 20+ farms throughout Chesapeake Bay Region.

“I recently made reservations for my birthday dinner here for my family and I. We had a great experience. We all three ordered steak dishes and everything came out quickly and cooked to order. I had the filet mignon which was juicy and tender, and crab cake was sizable and perfectly seasoned. Even the roasted carrots on the side were soft and flavorful. (I actually don’t like carrots so that’s saying something.) The executive chef came out to speak with us himself and sent out complimentary champagne for my birthday. We also learned that a lot of their menu is based on local farm-to-table supply! I love that. To round out the evening we shared a dessert assortment which included a yummy red velvet cupcake, rich chocolate brownie, cheesecake, and some sort of chocolatey creamy ice cream cup. Needless to say we left the restaurant maybe a little too full. I plan to go back soon to try more items on the menu!” Food 5  ◦ Ambience 5 ◦ Service 5 ◦ Value 5
