Baldwin's Station Restaurant Review

: The bone-rattling power of the freight train’s whistle is a showstopper, especially if you happen to be dining outdoors on the uncommonly pleasant deck when the train rolls on through. But that’s only one of the charms of this converted 1883 train station in the heart of old Sykesville. Inside, the main dining room envelops a lively crowd in the warmth of its high brick walls and touches of Americana. The kitchen turns out such updated classics as pan-roasted crab-stuffed flounder with roasted root vegetables and truffle risotto; Maryland crab cakes with celery root and potato mash; and Louisiana fried chicken with Cajun breading, cheddar grits and Brussels sprouts, all uniformly well prepared. There’s a prix-fixe menu and small plates on “Tapas Tuesdays” as well. Owner Stewart Dearie’s wine savvy translates into a small, well-chosen list, and his love of music means an ongoing concert series that includes folk, blues and bluegrass. The schedule also includes an interactive Twenties-theme murder mystery dinner.
