Loved the sweet potato infused waffle. Chicken had the best seasoning and fried to perfection. Shrimp n grits were amazing with bacon n sausage mixed in with grits.

Enjoyed this place a few years ago and then was disappointed to visit one day and found them closed. Has reopened under new management but with the original chef. Truffle Mac and cheese was divine and I enjoyed the ribeye dinner with cheese grits. Chef...More

Sir you are exactly right. This place is not The Corner Bistro & Wine Bar. The original operators have requested that the name be changed. The new management of this debacle are not associated with the restaurant professionals who ran a first class bistro &...More

Small restaurant, well located near the Babe Ruth museum. After a visit, why not stop at the Corner Bistro and Wine bar. The menu card is small but offers nice food for a quick delight... and maybe a longer one with a glass of wine....More

This restaurant is excellent. It is very old and rustic atmosphere. There are more quintessential places in the harbor area

They don't have a private space, they are a small intimate restaurant, run and managed by the chef. We had 4 there and loved it. Parking can be a problem...make sure there are no Orioles games when you wish to visit, they... More
