About Us

Welcome to BOLDER food/drink! We are tucked away in Western Howard County, located off Route 144 in Mt. airy, Maryland. Here at BOLDER, our menu is created with local flavors and innovative seasonal ideas emerging from the collision of ingredients and cultures to create BOLD flavors and new-American dishes.

Opening in 2016, BOLDER quickly became the newest hot spot in Western HoCo. We have been awarded many recognitions in the food industry including:
2017 Best In Dining by Howard Magazine (2nd Place for Best New Restaurant)
2018 Gold Daisy Award for Best Date Night Spot
2018 Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor
(Listed as #1 Restaurant in Mt. Airy, Md)
2019 Best Romantic Restaurant by Restaurant Guru
Listed as one of the Top 10 Cocktail Bars in Maryland by Best Things Maryland
Listed as Best Bourbon Bar by Great Bourbon Bars of America

When visiting BOLDER, please note the “flame” next to our signature entrees. These entrees have been given the flame because of their popularity with our patrons. We hand-cut every steak in house, purchased locally from Maryland’s own J.W. Treuth. Our seafood is delivered fresh daily like our wild Atlantic Salmon, tuna filets and large day boat scallops.

We hope that you will join us in our dining room for a romantic dinner for two by our fireplace, or laughs with girlfriends on our patio in the summer months. However you choose to dine, our Bolder family is ready to serve you!

Hours of Operation:
Tuesday-Thursday, 4pm-9pm; Friday-Saturday, 11am-10pm; Sunday, 11am-8pm with brunch from 11am-2pm
