Lansdowne/Halethorpe Area

  • 8

Fellow Hounds,

You haven't steered me wrong yet!

Here's a tough one.

I've got another business lunch (price is not an issue) that needs to be in the Lansdowne/Halethorpe area.

I'll be treating the presidents of large contracting companies to lunch.

Whatcha got for me?

  1. The Furnace Inn in Elkridge is not that far away, just down Rte 1

        Thanks meimei, I should have been more specific. Lansdowne MD.

      2. Not much in Lansdowne to impress anyone!.....Your only 15 minutes from downtown

        1. G&M restaurant is a low-key, family style restaurant that serves the most amazing crab cakes -the size of your fist and all lump crab! The atmosphere is casual, but the food comes in huge portions and is quite memorable. It is only a few miles out of Halethorpe off 695.

            I would not recommend G&M for a business lunch. Actually, I wouldn't recommend it for anything, but aside from the terrible food, it's dingy. I have nothing against a hole-in-the-wall, but it's in no way appropriate for business entertaining.

          2. If you're near 95 you're not that far from the Inner Harbor. The Capital Grille on E. Pratt Street has become the new (but pricey) "power lunch" spot in Baltimore.

            1. Thanks guys. I took Hue's suggestion and will make it the Elkridge Furnace. I eat at the cap grille about once a week (they know me by name now). I wanted to keep it a little more old school, blue collar, yet good enough to conduct some business. I have an unlimited expense account so I can eat anywhere I like (nice perk, eh?). One of my favorites is Mama's on the 1/2 shell (gotta get there at 11:30 for parking/seating though).
