Amazing food, service and atmosphere. A terrific place for social as well as business dinners. Best crab cake in Maryland and the fish is delicious. And then, of course the namesake fish is wonderful.

Had dinner here last week with a friend and the service and food were excellent. Great selection of steaks, lamb chops and veal dishes. Also some very good seafood entrees. They are known for their Prime Rib, I did not have it but saw it on the table next to me and it was a huge portion.Ask for their Greenberg... More

Although the location of this original restaurant is a bit odd, once it the door, it is a step back in time to an era of piano bar, highballs, leather and dark wood. The service was superb. The food was amazing. It was everything we wanted it to be for our special occasion and well worth the price.

Living in NY, we KNOW steak. So we decided to see what Baltimore had to offer. While the location was not ideal and the garage entrance a bit awkward, the food was very good. The prices are what you expect from a fancy steakhouse. For 4 adults and 2 kids our bill came out to around $450 with tip so... More

We made our reservation several months ago. We were in town for the Preakness. Our large group inherited a stray person at the last minute. I called to inquire if another person could join the group. The person who answered the phone told me that only the manager could make that decision as the restaurant was full for the evening.... More

My husband and I spent our 13th anniversary at this location. I had a filet, a wedge salad, and creme brulee. My steak was OK. It was edible but just not cooked well at all. My salad was wonderful I have nothing bad to say about that as well as my creme brulee. Our waiter was very nice but not... More

We haven't been here in 16 years. We were pleasantly surprised that the same quality service, the same decor and the same premium dishes and signature steaks are still served here. This really is your father's steak house. Portions large enough for sharing, steaks cooked to perfection, just the way you like them and a nice wine list. The flounder... More

We arrived early for our reservation to enjoy a drink at the bar and enjoy the music. Drinks were served promptly and my martini perfectly prepared. We were seated at a wonderful corner banquette for two and our server Bob presented the specials in a quirky but not unpleasant manner. We had brought our own wine. We had open to... More
