Good food and service. Nice place for brunch with friends. Very noisy inside making conversation difficult. Much better outside.

Walking up from the Inner Harbor early on a Wed evening, Regi's was the first place I saw on Light St in Federal Hill. The menu looked good, so I decided to try it, only to find out that they were booked solid till 8:30. I was surprised that they were that busy, but curious enough to come back and... More

Regi's American Bistro is a staple in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore City. There's a reason for that. It is a place that is welcoming to it's long time customers but also heartily embraces newcomers as well. It's a cozy spot with a bar that greets you the moment you walk in. There is seating in the bar area... More

The Baltimore area has crab cakes on all menus. Regi's crab sandwich was tasty but pricy for the small crab onon the large, roundon the large, sized crab on a large, fat (toasted) bun.

We were on a second visit to Fells Point/Canton and decided to explore Federal Hill on Labor Day. Quite a few places were closed for the Holiday but Regi's looked inviting. They had several outdoor tables and one canine guest already so we knew our miniature schnauzer would be welcome. She was presented with a bowl of water while we... More

Been there a few times. It's a local hang out spot so expect to get eyed up and down. Worth it though. I'd suggest the salmon salad. Pretty cool patio area for the week and a half that the weather is nice in B'More.

Wow! A local took us here after their favorite diner was closed. Not sure if all Baltimore food is this good, but this place is fantastic! We enjoyed a nice evening at an outdoor table. The Moscow Mule served in a unique cup was awesome. I ordered the meatloaf and it was like none other that I've ever had. Very... More

This is our neighborhood joint. You would think we would get tired of the menu or find the occasional flaw in service or taste. Not so! Regi's serves up both the traditional and the unique and they do it well -- every time at bat is a hit. Its also never too noisy -- you can actually have a conversation... More

This a good local bar and restaurant. The place has very friendly local atmosphere and upbeat tone! The food is very good and the drinks are great! It is in a very nice area, Federal Hill and is very accessible to the Inner Harbor. I have been there several times for Sunday Brunch and truly enjoy going there. If I... More
