“Want to party in the summer?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Great Sunday Brunch. Great crab cakes for the price. Great creamy crab soup, and portions are large. In the summer you will walk in before sunset and your late caz it will be packed! They might be playing Fran Sinatra and there is just something jumping about this place that makes you want to go back for that Bloody Mary at brunch or a delicious dirty martini!

“Excellent menu, tasty dishes, combined with view of downtown = very enjoyable evening for business travel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Party of four on a Wednesday night, for late dinner after a flight into BWI, this place made for very relaxing time.

The artichoke and crab dip along with the complimentary bread did the trick. I could have ate that the whole night.

The cream crab soup is delicious and filling go for the cup, and spare the bowl. It is very rich.

All plates were cleaned with no doggie bags and this was not do to just hunger, but it was just good.

It is a pricey dinner but worth it and on a weekday evening there was no wait.

Next time I'm here, that's where I'm eating!

“Overpriced and overrated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

OK - great view, but you can stand around for 2 hours for free for the same view - or better. The food and service are "hoidy-toidy" and overpriced. If you want to lpretend you are an aristocrat, go right ahead. Otherwise, try Fells Point or Phillips.

“Keeps the same quality as 20 years ago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We used to visit this place 20 years ago and came again. Service and food are actually better and the view from the windows creates the atmosphere.Inner Harbor at your feet. Nice place to have dinner with friends.

“Awesome view, very good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

We ate an early dinner here and were quite happy. While the service was a bit slow and they failed to place our appetizer order, they were very accommodating of our 16month old and her food allergies and very friendly. . The grilled rockfish was excellent as were the crab cakes. Perhaps a bit overpriced, but the view is spectacular! The bread basket and dip is incredible, too. We definitely will go back.
