Find your merry merry in creative cocktails and delicious holiday dishes. Howard County's culinary scene pulls out all the stops for the holidays serving up sips and bites that you won’t want to miss.

Indulge your sweet tooth

You'll find festive finishes on the dessert menus at many Howard County restaurants this season. From a Scoop and Paddle Pumpkin Roll at Iron Bridge Wine Company to a vegan Salted Caramel Pudding at Great Sage, there's no reason not to leave room for dessert!

Enjoy some of Maryland's best

You've heard that line about crabcakes and football? It's pretty true, at least when it comes to seafood. Marylanders take a lot of pride in the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay and the holidays are the perfect time to enjoy it. Sip on some Maryland Crab Soup at The Kings Contrivance or dig into a seafood burger at Hudson Coastal. You also can't go wrong with a crab cake, many Howard County restaurants feature them as a specialty.
