Description: When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore...
When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters, you've got to do it justice. We kept our building's most stunning architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches, like chairs and table lamps from original B&O dining cars. Our practices are distinctly 21st century, though, from selecting the best local produce at the farmer's market to serving cutting-edge craft cocktails to maintaining a steadfast commitment to sustainable business practices. If only train passengers from the early 1900s had it so good!

Nice... but overpriced. I requested a pizza and got a slice of flat bread with chorizo and some greens. Weird.

Trying to find a place to get a good meal in Baltimore included a short visit to the B & O. The menu we were given had extremely limited options, and the waitress was rude.

Daniel R I would like to think that you arrived at the B&O either between lunch and dinner or after dinner hours. We do offer a full breakfast, lunch, dinner as well as a weekend brunch menu. I do appreciate your feedback. More

Visited the hotel in the building to see the architecture and located this restaurant. I love the atmosphere. Somewhat dark but cozy. Seated quickly and the wait staff was very good. She recommended the crab cake sandwich. Good job. Not a lot of filler and very tasty. My friend had the special which was tuna salad on croissant. Looked good.... More

We were going to a concert at the Royal Farms Arena and this was the perfect location. The food was interesting and delicious. Calamari (not your typical fried) and a wonderful cheese tray were our appetizers with great wine. For entrees we had the lamb, steak, and scallops. All were praised highly by the diner and dessert was caramel popcorn... More

Had two meals, dinner and breakfast. Open/ airey eatery, most tables up one flight. Dinner dishes were above average, service both meals quite attentive.Some interesting menu choices. Nice beer and wine selection available. Breakfast was at usual overpriced rates and strangle only one slice of toast with omlete. Service attentib=ve then too.
