There’s also delish brunch (Avocado Toast Benedict, S’mores Pancakes…) and great happy hour specials at The Hall, CP – but we’re getting ahead of ourselves!
If you haven’t made it yet to The Hall College Park, then let us catch you up on what to expect from this great new, family-friendly addition to our local dining scene!
Colorful Decor at The Hall CP
Set behind the Hotel UMD and in the heart of UMD’s “Discovery District,” The Hall CP is 20,000 square feet of pure funk. Colorful murals brighten the tall and airy entryway to the main dining hall and bar areas. Seating includes a mixture of booths and tables.
Scene as you enter The Hall CP. Cafe area is closed for the time being so make way towards Pizza Oven for restaurant.
Creative and Kid-Friendly Menu
While you can definitely get your nachos and hamburgers here (7 to choose from), you can also treat yourself to delights such as a Seared Tuna Poke bowl, Short Rib Tacos and Street Cauliflower (with chili lime mayo and cotija cheese). Don’t mind if I do!
They have a kids menu. We repeat, “They Have a Kids Menu.” When a restaurant does not have such and instead mumbles something about crafting a meal off of the existing menu, it just makes this family feel like their minions are not *really* welcome there. And that feeling stinks.
Instead, The Hall CP has a Kids Menu and coloring paper and crayons and chalk for the young (and not so young) to do their artistic thang on the restaurant’s outdoor area while mommy sips her Electric Lemonade slushy. $6. Nuff said.
Friendly & Safe Staff
All of the staff at The Hall CP were wearing face masks. (And wearing them fully; none of that half-mask action.) They wipe down every table and chair before you’re seated. Tables are all 6-feet apart and there are hand sanitizing stations throughout the restaurant.
Brandon, The Hall CP’s manager (and a Riverdale Park resident – yay!), gave us a lovely tour of the restaurant and event space. While there are no events going on right now due to COViD, you could spend your whole meal time daydreaming about what events, shows, productions, movies you’d like to see once we safely get through this pandemic together.
Right there, by the chalk collection, we noticed a couple of water bowls for dogs. You know we love our canines! Turns out dogs are welcome at The Hall CP’s outdoor area! Eat at one of the many lovely tables outside alongside your four-legged best friend. 🙂
Outdoor Seating Galore
TONS. TONS OF OUTDOOR SEATING AND MEANDERING SPACE!
Yes, the caps are intentional because outdoor space is a hot commodity right now and The Hall’s outdoor space is HUGE!
We’re so happy The Hall CP invited us to check out their menu and space. We’ll definitely be returning to eat at and support this fun, kid & dog-friendly spot – and highly recommend you do, too!

Safety Protocol at The Hall CP
As excited as we are to be back serving the College Park community, we are even more excited to foster a safe space for family and friends to enjoy time together, safely. We are following the below protocol and we kindly ask that our customers do the same:
- Wear a mask! Everyone greeting you, serving you and preparing your food will be wearing a mask. You are welcome to take off our mask while eating, but until then please keep it on.
- Wash your hands frequently! Our staff are continuing to wash their hands often and thoroughly. You should too!
- Table distance & capacity limitations! We are adhering to all PG County guidelines and all tables are at least 6 feet apart. No more than six people will be seated at one table.
- Table & chair sanitization! We wipe down every table and chair before a new guest is seated. Please never hesitate to ask for your table to be wiped down again! The answer will always be yes.
- Disposable menus! Not the most environmentally friendly (and we’re working on that), but for the time being we will be giving each customer a fresh, unused menu.
- Hand sanitizing stations! You can find these at the entrance and throughout the restaurant.
We can’t wait to share our delicious food with you whether you’re inside, getting takeout or enjoying the largest outdoor seating option in the College Park area. We’ve missed you!
The Hall CP is located at 4656 Hotel Dr, College Park, MD 20742.
