Great for large parties, but make a reservation. I take a lot of my out of town guests there for a local Maryland experience. Excellent crab cakes (large with minimal fillers), and great seafood. Great for sit down or take away. Could use an update in terms of decor and lighting, but we go... read more

While visiting the Baltimore area for the first time, we obtained a list of convenient restaurants at our hotel and selected Timbuktu at random. But what a lucky and terrific choice! Exceptional service and more-than-you-can-eat delicious seafood; try the crab cakes. Will definitely visit again when returning to Baltimore, and recommend to friends.

I joined about 15 other people for a reunion dinner at Timbuktu on the 21st of June. I cannot say too much in praise of this fine establishment. They were packed on that Saturday evening, but the service was prompt, efficient and courteous. The fare was incredible. l had Chicken Cordon Blue, which was outstanding. Based on the comments of...

We stumbled upon Timbuktu by accident. It's a strange looking place from the outside - No windows. When you walk in, it may still strike you as some what of an oddity. You'll find yourself in a small holding area. Do not be put off by this. Once you get into the place, you will not be disappointed. Large helpings... More

We brought an out-of-town business client for dinner, on the back end of major rainstorm earlier that evening. Consequently, the restaurant was about one-third full, which is in stark contrast to the regular patron load, most evenings. As it was not as busy as normal, we were seated immediately in the main dining room, at a nice table. The restaurant... More

We arrived last Saturday night at 7:55pm for our 8pm reservation. We had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. Kathleen was our Waitress. Very friendly, efficient, a pleasure. Excellent Customer Service. We ordered the crab dip and Clams Casino for our appetizer. Clams were very good. Crab dip--skip this appetizer, nothing impressive about it. We ordered the crab... More

Tuesday is bar b q night. Brisket, pulled pork and chicken. Plus corn bread , baked beans and slaw. Decor is a bit dark and plain. Service was good. Seems like they have a lot of steady regulars there which is a good sign. Overall good food not special.

This was a great dining location for seafood pasta - which included a generous portion of crab meat, shrimp, scallops and mussels in a rich and creamy white pasta sauce, over a bed of perfectly cooked linguini. It comes in a really large portion, so it's a good sharing dish. The service was great as well.

This place is great. I'd heard a lot about this restaurant before I actually visited, and I have to say that I was not disappointed. The food was good, our service was great, and I'll be returning again soon. Our server, Ashley, made us feel at home... In fact, Ashley is one of the main reasons why we will be... More

Family traveling from Detroit to New Hampshire had a 3 hour lay over in Baltimore and asked if we couldn't have dinner with them at the airport. Well, there are some nice eateries in the secured part of the airport, but not such a great selection in the unsecured area we would be limited to. So I found reviews on... More
