A Dining@Large reader sends news of a new venue at old scenic spot, which reopened back in March. The tip actually came my way a few weeks ago, but somehow I forgot to post it. Here's the scoop. LV
The restaurant spot on Belair Road in Kingsville at the Gunpowder Falls has opened again under new ownership. For my lady friend and I this is the fourth or fifth resurrection on this spot that we have patronized.
There was Timber Creek Tavern under three owners (including the people who used to run the old Valu Food Markets who tried to turn it into a fancy restaurant with cloth tablecloths) and Hemingways that didn't even bother to change the old Timber Creek sign and only lasted a few weeks.
I've been told The Gunpowder Lodge is run by the people who operate Dead Freddies on Harford Road and in Bel Air. It has new furniture (including a new bar) and is really sun lit. Gone are the deer heads of Timber Creek vintage, but the fireplace remains for comfort on chilly evenings.
Their initial menu is heavy on burgers, pizza, and wraps with only a half dozen entrees. (Don't miss the mac and cheese as an appetizer or side!) They have a good list of brews on tap, too.
A real attraction now that the weather has warmed is the deck and the horseshoe pits down in the hollow "out back."
I sure hope they make it because it seems they're really trying.
