Had the mussels special and the crab cakes. All were VG. Good line of beer taps. Sit at the bar or grab a seat in one of the vintage rooms. Cool atmosphere. We sat at the bar. Live music as well, depending on the evening.

A friend and I went for a Friday night out. We had their special fall bisque soup and split the mussels with assorted sauce. The Garlic/Capers and Anchovy sauces were our favorite sauces. We had a nice quiet booth to sit it which made the experience fun and cozy, kind of like the Medieval English Pub atmosphere. Food was delicious... More

Explored Baltimore's unique town, Fells Point with friends. Was hungry and found impulsively restaurant Bertha's. Despite the very late hour in the evening, were both waiters and the kitchen going strong. I chose the Fisherman's salad - seafood when in Baltimore. The taste was not surprising fish, but be aware that it was significantly. Honestly, so I was a bit... More

Took eight people to Bertha's last night. Been there several times and it's mostly outstanding. Service took forever. In fact, over an hour wait between appetizers and entrees. They ran out of a few dishes after we ordered. We were not happy. There apparently were two large private parties going on in the restaurant. When food finally came, the manager... More

The mussels are the best I ever had. They were huge and you could select from so many combinations of butter, garlic, capers, . . .

I warn you that as a pretentious gourmet, I am not going to wax lyrical about this place, but I want to convey straight away that I enjoyed it. Our original destination had been the much praised Thames Street Oyster place, but they don't take bookings on the day, we were going to have to wait an hour for a... More

I've eaten consistently at Bertha's over 45 years, and while the mussels where big, tasty and plump, the sauce was watery and tasteless (no more bread dipping!) the oyster stew was also more watery than creamy, and the bread was just stale! The servers... Really good! It's Bertha's, a Baltimore institution... But frankly, I wasn't impressed like previous visits!

A great little place in Fells Point. Recommended by a friend who was a local in Baltimore for a long time. Mussels, crab cakes, chicken livers... all winners. Great cocktails and beers too. Will be going again if I am back in Baltimore.

Thank Tansy C
