We really loved our meal at this fantastic restaurant. Friendly and attentive service; great food quality; simple but elegant setting... all the makings of a wonderful experience. We loved the oysters; frisee salad with ruby shrimp; crab cakes; great; lobster roll; fish and chips and bread pudding - all so tasty. Don't miss this restaurant but be sure to have... More

Was able to get a reservation for 8:15pm on a Thursday night - showed up a few mins early (place was packed) and was rated promptly at 8:15pm. Place is lively was a great bar and if you want a quieter setting and ambiance, definitely ask to be seated upstairs. The decor is charming and elegant but not overly stuffy.... More

My wife and I dined here recently, and have not had this good of a meal in some time. The restaurant itself is very nicely decorated, and has a very cozy feel. The staff was extremely nice and very knowledgeable about the menu. All of the seafood tasted incredibly fresh, and the menu has a nice mix of classics and... More

We didn't have a good experience at this place. We went to get some oysters and have a beer or two. The service wasn't very good and we didn't get what we ordered. There are other restaurants in the area that are much nicer! We would not recommend this as a choice for dinner or a drink.

After a lovely walk in Fell's Point, we were lucky enough to get a sidewalk table at this highly rated establishment. We had delicious dinners, with my sister in law joining my husband and me. We all like to share so we each had a taste of everything we all had ordered. There wasn't a disappointment in any dish. Our... More

We had been hear twice before a year ago and decided to return. We camped out at a bar table by the front window almost an hour before the kitchen opened at 5:00 p.m. when we found out the place was completely booked all night for dinner. Cooled our heels with a glass of wine a few large shrimp and... More

A friend recommended this to us. We didn't have a reservation, but we asked if we could sit at the bar. My wife and I actually like sitting at the bar. You meet interesting people and can chat with the bar staff. Instead of a one hour wait we were able to be seated right away. Great choice of local... More

Went with a group for dinner, and we sat upstairs. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were a handful for our talented, charming, and knowledgable (and patient!) server Kevin. He did a first rate job. From first course to last, the meal was delicious. Don't miss it while in Baltimore. Quaint Fells Point location.

Had a great meal at the bar. Very busy local place and a great staff. Started with oysters, clams, and herring and finished with mussels and a crab cake. The only disappointment was the crab cake -not awful but not great either. Would definitely go back when I return to Baltimore.
