Shepherds Pie and Crab Cakes

Must get the Shepherds Pie and Crabcakes. Delish!!!!! It's such a cool place. Quiet in the back and loud in the front. I will definitely return here on my next visit. Super atmosphere!

We went here after a visit to the near by Johns Hopkins center . The bartender was also the server and the bus boy yet he managed everything very well and we never had to flag him down for anything . We shared the boxty's , old bay flavored wings , and cheddar jalapeño poppers . The boxty's were very... More

Irish bars can be found everywhere around the world and they are never like the bars in Ireland. They have a smelly, dank, drunken life of their own. And in Baltimore? But the gentlemen at the hotel was sincere in his recommendation and because I didn't want to invest too much time in getting down to Fell's Point, I popped... More

This is a solid Irish pub serving all sorts of delicious bites. We are here during a Wednesday happy hour and the vibe is energetic and yet somehow laid back. The bar takes center stage with a lively group with tables for two surrounding it. (We didn't head upstairs or to the back room.) There is a huge window, perfect... More

Very good food with a nice draft beer selection. Felt much more authentic than "Irish pubs" you'll see in touristy areas.

Great local spot that seems to be a favorite with many locals. If you are visiting Baltimore make a point to stop even though it is off the main drag. Small place in a residential area. Stopped for lunch yesterday and we were very pleased. Great fries and mashed potatoes, chicken sandwich was great, salads delicious. They have a selection... More

A place you feel welcome, good food, reasonably priced. Solid Irish food with some Baltimore favorites thrown in. Excellent fish and chips. Great burger. Shepherd's Pie looked fantastic. We will definitely be going back again and again.

Very friendly neighborhood pub. The shepherd's pie is excellent! The place is small but they had no trouble seating us. Many beers to choose from.

Our innkeeper recommended this tiny little neighborhood restaurant and bar saying that their crabcakes were better than the ones at the restaurants that had been on television. And he was right! They were full of crabmeat, no fillers, prepared just right. The mashed potatoes were heavenly and the green beans crisp, but not raw. This restaurant spoiled us for crabcakes... More
