Halfway points - north of baltimore

Strange request, but it would be great if anyone could help.

I would like to meet my parents for Mother's Day at a nice restaurant. The type of food does not matter, but the quality definitely does.

They are coming from Reading, PA and I am coming from Washington, DC.

Does anyone know of a restaurant that fits the above description - probably about 20-30 minutes north of Baltimore?

  1. If they are coming from Reading are they taking I-83 south? Check out the website for Milton Inn in Sparks,MD. Very nice restaurant in a quaint setting. Food there is usually good although I've had some spotty meals there too.

    1. I haven't been to this place, but it's on my list of places that I want to try! I have heard very good things about Clarence's Taste of New Orleans in Edgewood.


      1. I guess he's looking for a place somewhere between Cockeysville MD and York PA. amaebi's recommendation of the Milton Inn is probably a sound suggestion. I've never personally eaten there, but it's suppose to be one of the nicest restaurants in the Baltimore area. Oregon Grille is also suppose to be a great restaurant. I've never been to either of them, but they are on my list - both are pretty pricey - in the neighborhood of $60 per person.

        I suppose Lancaster PA would be too far a drive for you. There's a place I was reading about on Zagat called Gibralter which is suppose to be outrageously good. I wonder if your parents have eaten there before.
