The Oregon Grille Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: The horsy set of Baltimore County travels over hill and dale to dine at these tables. Yes, it’s the luxe surroundings, all dark-wood paneling, fireplaces and intimate booths with a pianist jazzing around the standards. A collection of equine memorabilia, including vintage posters and colorful jockeys’ silks, graces the walls. But it’s also the kitchen, which turns out straightforward, but not necessarily straitlaced, renditions of regional favorites.

Food: On the grill side of the menu is a seared, dry-aged sirloin strip that’ll pluck the heartstrings of any beef lover. More contemporary fare, such as lobster corn cakes with corn and whole-grain mustard beurre blanc, can be found on the appetizer menu, and the entrée list includes such temptations as porterhouse lamb chops with Maytag mashed potatoes and pan-fried rockfish with crab hash and Delmarva salsa. Sliders, sandwiches and small plates are served at the bar. A notable wine list complements the menu.
