My sister and I went for lunch on St. Patrick's day and we're not disappointed. We had some Irish whiskey and a rueben sandwich. Which were delish! Our server Kat was pleasant also and the atmosphere was very relaxed. We enjoyed everything about our afternoon. I would definitely go again.

Went here for a Valentine's dinner with my girlfriend and was not disappointed! The food was so good and a great selection of craft beer! Will definitely go back again!

We had a getaway and needed a place for dinner. Dan's was recommended to us. Great atmosphere and the food was delicious. We had two of the nights specials: lamb chops and flounder w/crabmeat. Definitely making a return trip!

This was not our first visit to Dan's. We always get a good food experience and there are many beers available, on tap and bottled. I had the blackened Ahi Tuna sandwich, which was delicious and an ample portion of tuna. My wife had the fish and chips, which was great. Friends ordered 2 versions of risotto, one with chicken,...

Dan's is a comfortable place to go to in Boonsboro, owned by the son of the author Nora Roberts. It is a friendly place that seems to draw both locals and people from out of the area who like a good place to eat and have something to drink while enjoying a relaxing atmosphere. The Caesar salads are delicious and... More

I think I would give higher marks to the tap house side than the restaurant, but the food was fine (not "OMG Great" - but fine). I had a grilled chicken burger, which was very nicely done. One of our diners was underwhelmed by the crab dip and the veggie wrap was only ok.

We stayed at InnBoonsBoro across the street, and were told that dinner here would be good. No question. It was a Saturday evening (you MUST have reservations or be prepared to wait a LONG time). It was very noisy, so be ware. My wife had scallops and I had Ahi tuna. The scallops were excellent, and the tuna was among... More

We were in a large group and got 3 appetizers and they were fabulous. The asparagus, the fried zucchini and the calamari. The cocktails and beer selection are fantastic. We had a wonderful time and great dinner. Our server was not as great as some and after we drank 2 of the fabulous cocktails we were finished and she was... More

Took my father to lunch for his birthday on 12/21, it was his first time there. I have eaten here many times with family and friends and have always been satisfied with the quality of the food as well as the service. My father is still talking about how much he enjoyed the food and the overall experience. They have... More
