The best crabcakes in Baltimore. I could end my review there and you would know everything you need to know.
But I also had the chili bake - which was a very mild chili baked with plenty of cheddar cheese topping. I could have done without the almost too big croutons on top but it was a cold day and it tasted really good.
We came in on a Tuesday and it was half price crab cake day! Yeah! $8.99 for one cake either with crackers or on bread. The waiter/barkeep said we should go with the cracker one and we did.
Holy crab cakes, Spongebob! These consisted of almost 100% flaky, tender, sweet crab meat the size of a tennis ball. The others we had tried around Baltimore had much more filler and smaller crab pieces. These were browned perfectly and needed nothing but a fork to enjoy. We ordered another because they were so good. Honestly had we not wanted to try the sausage platter they had on the Oktoberfest menu we would have ordered two more.
The sausage platter had a choice of two sausages served with German potato salad and kraut. Bratwurst, Knackwurst, all the wursts which were delish! Honestly, I could have eaten a big ol' bowl of the German potato salad. At $13 it seemed a bit steep for bar grub. But we had time to waste and bellies to fill before a really long trip home on a non stop late flight.
The locals eat here. About every other person who came in was greeted by name, knew the bartender and ordered "the usual" or "you know what I want". Gotta love that!
If you like a clean, simple beer ask for a glass of Nutty Boh. It seems to be the cheap beer of choice around here but it really is refreshing.
Honestly, I'm not sure I've ever had better, more friendly service at a tavern eatery.
