I had planned on visiting Frisco Grille due to the information on this site. There was a concert down the road at the Merriweather that I was heading to later in the evening.

Anyhow, just of MD-175, tucked away in a strip mall is the Frisco Grille and Cantina. Upon entering, there is a hostess and a take-out counter for their tex-mex food. To the right are some tables and a small bar area. To the right of the bar, up for easy viewing is their LCD monitor that features their current tap list. The clientele are friendly and in high spirits here, great staff too.
A good selection of beers from the mid-atlantic area, as well as some other craft beers from other areas of the country. Legacy, Starr Hill, DFH, Avery, J.W. Lees, Otter Creek, and more all on draft when I went. The food looked great, but I did not have any.
If you find yourself heading to a concert, going to a business meeting, or whatever while in Columbia, MD, you have to stop here.

I love this place.
A good friend of mine works here so I'm a bit biased on the service. The food is fantastic and the beer choices are always phenomenal. If you're in Columbia for any reason you have to go here after your visit to Perfect Pour of course.

Good bar food, nice beer selection. Updated electronic draft board. Lower rating due to server inability to describe anything about the beers that our party were considering.

Good food, fifty usually well selected brews on tap. Hep even for the hop hound but a few choice selections of other styles. Good wait staff. Noise level high, poor sound system contributes to white noise effect. Parking limited compared to table/bar space.
