Bare Bones Grill and Brewery continues to have one of the best happy hours in the area.In house 16z brews are $4 and the food is substantial. The Patapsco Valley Gold is the lightest of the 5 in house beers and the food on this Friday night's buffet included wings,meatballs,potatoes,pasta,cheese and vegetables.Who needs a menu.

Took my wife to lunch here last week and had another great meal. We ordered an IPA, a Cheeseburger, and a California Steak Salad. We shared everything. Very tasty!
