Box Hill Pizzeria, a Harford County favorite for crab cakes, is getting a makeover, both inside and out.
The Abingdon restaurant opened 35 years ago when Box Hill Square shopping center on MD-924 was new. Over the years, business boomed. Now, the owner said, it’s time for “the place to match the food.”
The restaurant is extending the front of the building with a pergola that opens to the outdoors. In the winter, heaters will be used to keep diners in the fresh air.
“It seems to be the trend that everybody wants to eat outside,” said Tom Kanaras, who co-owns the restaurant with his brother.
On the inside, reclaimed brick will give the pizzeria a rustic feel. A new, exterior sign will read “Box Hill Pizzeria and Crabcakes” to keep the restaurant’s signature dish in the forefront.
Except for one day, the restaurant has remained open and busy through the renovations which started in February. Kanaras thanked his loyal customers and employees for being excited and invested in the changes.
