Went on recommendation of hotel concierge. So glad we did! Unique menu, excellent flavors and a quick and attentive server made this lunch a pleasure. Serving sizes very large - glad I split the soft shell crab sandwich with my travelling companion. Excellent value for you money!

Waitress dribbles red wine on stem of glass and doesn't bother to do anything. I have on a white shirt! Very surly service. Took about 20 minutes to place an order. Of all the waitresses here it seems like one hates their job more than the next.

We were in Baltimore for the day and happen to crossed Regi's. The service staff was very good and the atmosphere was very nice. However, the food was less than satisfying. Some of their specials were priced higher then the value of the actual meal. For example, the pulled pork sandwich was a good size portion, however, it was a... More

This is a go to spot for 35+ crowd. The owner, Alan is usually on hand managing and greeting guests along with his wife, Sande. The bar loads up with locals daily who sip and swirl from Happy Hour thru dinner. The crab cakes are authentic and delicious Maryland Crab lump. I love the salads like Thai w peanuts and... More

We had a nice Thanksgiving dinner. Everything was very good. Peach martini was very good. It was extremely loud even in the side dining room though - that was bad. Nonetheless we had a good time. Service was good.

There are not a lot of places in Baltimore that I can say is consistently good and I always enjoy myself. Regis is one of those places. We live in northern Baltimore County but don't mind driving to federal hill for a great meal, and a friendly staff who make you feel like you're in a private home. Everything is... More

My daughter and I had brunch here before seeing "The Book of Mormon" (which was great). The restaurant is on Federal Hill in Baltimore and is a cozy two room space. The first room is a bar and the second the seating area. There is an outside patio which was enclosed but we preferred indoors. The coffee (I had decaf)... More

We sat at the bar on a Sunday afternoon after visiting Fort McHenry. Service was great, and the crab cakes were awesome - not a lot of filler. My Bloody Mary was great too. Wish I lived in the neighborhood and could visit here more often.

That is saying a lot since there aren't many places around Baltimore that can claim good food. The food was straight from the kitchen; excellent temperature. Greeting at the door and service would entice someone return. Grilled fruit could have been a little fresher; taste was good. A little loud, so one needs to speak up, but most places fall... More
