We had a family gathering for my fathers 90th birthday and he likes Bare Bones.
We worked with them in advance and used their banquet room for our 30 people. They suggested a buffet so we went with that. Food selections were made ahead of time. Two main meats, two veggies and a salad and not alcohol drinks. It was $20 a person including an up charge for ribs and something else.

The food was good, hot and plentiful. No one went hungry and we didn't have any complaints about the quantity or quality of food. Salad was nice and crisp, ribs were cooked well with sauce mostly on the side and the chicken was.... well chicken!

We had one dedicated server and she handled things really well. Any alcohol was served and billed individually and we had 1 vegetarian and one child and we just ordered off the menu for them with no hassle.

All in all a really good night. I would recommend Bare Bones.

PS..... we have gone here just as a couple and their food is consistently good as is their service.

Happy hour in the bar provides free barfood (e.g. wings). The pork BBQ sandwiches are great, the ribs are good and the Maryland crab soup is excellent. Frequent live music geared to adults.

The Bare Bones Chicken Salad is to write home about. It is large so I take out half right away (before dressing) to take home. Their fish tacos are also good. Wait staff is good - seem to be mostly college aged, friendly and knowledgeable. We go about once a month and have not been disap0ointed.

stopped in for lunch while on a motorcycle ride with friends. There were 10 of us and they were able to seat us right away. The waitress did an excellent job keeping everyone happy. The group ordered a wide range of food items and everyone was pleased. I had the red chili, very good but could use a bit more spice. Also had one of the burgers which was cooked perfectly. Had a great time. Highly recommend, will return.

Food was average, but the beers were below average. We had a very kind waiter, but the place could definitely do with an update... or a location that is not in a strip mall. It seems that it once was a popular hangout, but it's lost some of its magic. The booths were cozy and we had a nice time, but we probably won't go back because it was nothing special.
