Excellent food but expensive

Everything we ordered was above and behind fresh and delicious. Menu is expensive but worth every penny. The view is amazing and the restaurant is very convenient to Inner Harbor

There isn't a bad seat in the house!!! You can see the harbor from anywhere in the place & it's even better if you go right before the sunset & see if fall behind the city of Baltimore. I had the crab soup to start with & it was absolutely creamy delicious greatness!!! The bread they serve comes with a... More

This restaurant sits on the harbor which adds to the ambiance. The food was very tasty and prices fairly normal for the location. However, a bottle of wine is unbelievable. We selected a bottle of Louis Martini Sonoma Cabernet - $50! We routinely buy this bottle in grocery stores for less than $13 and can get it on sale for... More

I went here on recommendation of my colleague of mine who sees the ad for this place all the time while exiting the terminal at BWI. He never went here, but he wanted me to try it. I was glad he told me about this place. I was well treated by all staff, from the front of the house to... More

We had great food. Looking out at the inlet was very peaceful. Make reservations because we were there on a Wednesday and it was packed. A must stop in Baltimore.

We had a group of 8 during the first night of a convention. My boss wanted a "a good crab cake place", so I asked around and this place was top of mind with the locals. In everyone's opinion, the food was outstanding! But the service was underwhelming. We had to servers, plus a trainee. But it took quite some... More

My first visit for the Sunday brunch. Nice variety. I really liked the shrimp mac and cheese but the bread pudding with rum raisin sauce was soooo good.

What a great waterfront restaurant. The fresh food is as good as the beautiful view. The menu has a large variety of items. The waiter recommended the freshest of the fish of the day. I had some oysters that were perfectly to my taste. The Asian salmon was perfectly cooked and I cleaned my plate. This is not a cheap... More

Beautiful restaurant and nice menu. Not really overpriced for the location, view, and portion size. I'm just sorry that I couldn't go to their famous Sunday brunch. They even have live music for that. Would I go back? Absolutely! It rates up there with the one of the best restaurants in Inner Harbor.

Great view and the food was amazing. We had the cream of crab soup-- there weren't many lumps of crab, but the flavor was perfect. Ordered the surf and turf and holy cow- the crab cake was to die for! Steak was cooked perfectly and totally melted in your mouth. Highly recommend
