HOMEMADE DESSERTS‎
Bertha’s was once proud to supply all our own homemade dessert selections. But with the recent retirement of our long tenure, in house baker, we have decided it’s time to include our own tradition with another local favorite. Bertha’s is proud to feature “Dangerously Delicious Pies”. Providing fresh baked seasonal desserts, as well as classic mainstays like the “Baltimore Bomb”. Created especially for Baltimore, it’s loaded with Berger Cookies, a local specialty that melt down and swirl into a sweet vanilla chesse filling. This pie could be the ultimate of decadence.
Please ask your server for nightly pie selections.

Most recent trip had to sit in bar because of private party event, and was if anything even more fun. Food (mussels!) as good as ever and best service we have had in years. Wonderful evening at a very fair price.

This place is very small in the bar area. We were a little cramped but it is an old school bar. We ordered the white wine mussels, hot steamed shrimp and brussel sprouts. Everything was very delicious and the service was great.

Ordered the garlic and butter mussels and they didn't disappoint. The location in Fells Point is a bonus too. The restaurant ambience felt very local and the restaurant has been around for many years. We were glad we stopped in for dinner. You should too.
