About Mountain Branch Grille & Pub
One of the best restaurants in Maryland is located just two miles from I-95 exit 74 at Mountain Branch Golf Course - 20 minutes from Baltimore.
Constructed out of three acres of Oregon’s finest Douglas Fir, the historic-looking timber-pegged post and beam structure has high ceilings, multilevel architecture and a magnificent view. The Grille & Pub at Mountain Branch is a favorite for relaxing after a round of golf and is an ever-popular destination for lunch, dinner and late night. Spacious patios afford dining al fresco when the weather is mild. And when winter winds are blowing, a large fireplace keeps the inside warm and cozy. The American-classic menu offers a diverse mix of tastes, including soups, salads, and sandwiches as well as fresh fish, crab cakes and Angus beef. Our chefs take pride in keeping the offerings creative and interesting - taking full advantage of fresh seasonal ingredients.

Mountain Branch Grille & Pub Ratings and Reviews
We were in town for a jr baseball tournament up the road and finally had to have something besides "bar food". Even though it did take a while for our food to come out, everything else was really great. They did have a small wedding going on so that might have been some of the delay.
Would most certainly go back if we were in the area!
My wife I had dinner on Thursday evening (7/13/17) at 5 p.m. to celebrate my wife's birthday and the food and service was excellent!! Our only complaint was the noise from the bar adjacent to the dining area. I would recommend the Bartender remind patrons the inside dining area is very close to the bar and if they wish to be boisterous then take the conversation to the outdoor patio. We will definitely return again and see if the noise level is any different.
We went to Mountain Branch with my adult son and his girlfriend. Got a table by the window which was great. Ordered drinks and waited, and waited, and waited. Finally came and they were fine. Then ordered an appetizer which was a cheese plate, consisting of two, maybe three kinds of cheeses, some grainy mustard and some soft red peppers. And guess what...we waited and waited, and waited and waited, and waited,and waited, and waited....to the point the waitress was even aware and checked on the progress twice, kept us informed and even agreed we'd waited way too long with no prompting from us. As the waitress placed the cheese plate on the table, she said "I'm taking this off the check, you shouldn't have had to wait this long." The waitress left and said I'm checking on the entrees to make sure they're not late. Our food came in normal time and was fine. We got desert, coffee, then the check without incident. I paid the check with a gift certificate and a gift card. Honest mistake occurred on the restaurants part and I walked out still owing a little over $100 and was unaware of it. I got a call at home that night, and agreed to stop in the next day and pay my debt.
I know some of you are saying "I wouldn't have paid that", but I legitimately owed it to them and they were going to make the waitress pay it if I didn't. Mistakes happen to us all.
This was a Thursday night, and they have a deck party every Thursday, however the restaurant wasn't crowded at all. Would I go back.....probably, but not if I wanted to impress someone or it was a special occasion.
High school group of friends had lunch here. We have been here before and love it. Was quite surprised when they offered to give us separate checks.
We ARE GOING TO RESERVE THIS PLACE FOR A HS REUNION NEXT YEAR!
We love it. Choices are fantastic! More than you can eat and the onion soup is fantastic!!!
Second time here. The food was delicious as always, but the service was a little slow. We were seated between two large parties at a four-top, at which my elbow leaned against the post the whole time. Would have preferred sitting by the window with a view of the breathtaking vista!
Excellent Father's Day Brunch! The omelet station and beef carving station is a nice addition to the regular self serve brunch food that people can find at other restaurants. Our favorite items at the pastry station included the warm bread pudding with sauce and the warm cinnamon rolls. The servers were friendly and efficient. No wonder Mountain Branch gets top ratings year after year for their Sunday brunch.
The food as always was good. The band on the back porch was so loud, combined with the noise from the bar it was hard to have a conversation. Service was very slow and at times rude. We sat there nearly 30 minutes before our waitress even took our order. We've eaten there many times and this has to be the worst we have experienced.
Four of us went to celebrate a birthday. Margaret, our waitress, was excellent as always!
All four of us ordered the Queen Cut Prime Rib. It was mouth watering and could be easily cut with a butter knife.
All were served at the proper temperature.
Fantastic night celebrating a wonderful man's birthday that was made even better with the fine food and excellent service.
Restaurant connected to a golf course but that does not distract from the dining area. always consistently very good. The Blackened tuna sandwich is a 1" thick piece of tuna with sautéed onions and peppers, excellent. This time it was just a little off so I rated 4 stars vs 5. the Maryland crab soup is the traditional style that I love.
The service was great and the atmosphere was cozy. We enjoyed the cabin feel and the view of the golf course.
It is disappointing that you can not substitute items on the menu but we were a group and made that inconvenience work with food trading haha. Trading, because food "sharing" does have a fee here.
We went to an event that had three meal options, so not a wide selection. It took 2 hours to have dinner. We overheard the hostess complaining that our tables hadn't "turned over" yet, but we hadn't gotten our dinner! Seemed when service lagged, or food was affected. I got steak, it was COLD when I received it. But, I didn't return it because I didn't want to wait 2 more hours.
Iv'e been here many times, this was by far our worst experience. I would highly recommend the sunday brunch, runs smoothly, plenty of options, and its a buffet, so you don't have to wait for the kitchen!
We went for the Sunday brunch and found some of the hot food to be cold at 10:00 am. Wonderful deserts. The staff was attentive and courteous. The restaurant has a great view of the golf course. The furniture, fixtures, carpeting and decor is dated and could use refreshing. At $25 per person, there could have been a better selection of foods. The bagels were stale and no other breads were available
The prime rib special was outstanding--it included a Caesar salad, prime rib done to perfection, green beans and mashed potatoes. Our server, Justin, was attentive and knowledgeable--he even went back into the kitchen and found anchovies for our Caesar salad! We will definitely return!
Mountain Branch Grill is located in a beautiful stone building overlooking the 18th hole of a golf course. We went there with friends to celebrate a birthday. The menu had many fine choices plus several specials that night. The rockfish and salmon dishes were excellent. I had a seafood stew that was outstanding. Even though it was very crowded that night the service was unbelievable. Our waitress (Brieanna) was one of the best waitress that we have ever had. What more could you ask for great friends, great food, great service and a Happy Birthday.
We had lunch upstairs as there was an "event" booked for the first floor. Space is not as attractive or bright as downstairs but that did not affect our lunch with friends. 2 of us had Reuben's, one a cheesesteak and the other chicken salad. Everyone enjoyed their lunch. For dessert, the bread pudding is delicious! And one in our party enjoyed a pumpkin martini! Yum!🍸
Ordered the crab cakes, over cooked on bottom, med inside. Cesar salad good, wife had seared rock fish, had better at other seafood places. My French fries were cold inside. Waiter covering other tables, couple entered at sat next to us after we were seated served before we were.
All the food was very good except the Filet Mignon. The steak was chewy and the texture was stringy. It tasted more like pot roast or a cheaper cut of meat. We have had Filet Mignon steak there before and they were excellent. So not sure why these two steaks were not very good. We did let the management know about the steaks. The service was very good, but the restaurant was not busy at all. This was on a Monday evening. My wife and I were celebrating our 46th Wedding Anniversary and we did enjoy being the only couple there for about a half hour. A few other couples did come in for dinner around 7:30pm but it was very nice to have the attention of the two servers. One was in training and both were very attentive and engaging. We both had a very nice romantic evening.
