Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The oldest continually operated Saloon in North America dating back to the late 1700s. The only Licensed alcohol establishment in Maryland to exist before, during, and after prohibition. The Horse you Came in on Saloon has been at the heart of Baltimore's local live music scene for over five decades. Hosting over one-thousand live music performances per year, you're certain to catch some great local live acoustic tunes on during your stay. Offering a full lunch and dinner menu featuring a combination of classic pub fare, south of the border favorites, and local crab-centric items such as our Crab Pretzel, and Angus Certified Philly Crab Cheesesteak. The portions are generous, so come hungry. Local legend has it that "The Horse" was a favorite drinking spot for the talented American author and Poet, Edgar Allan Poe. The facts around Mr.Poe's death remain a mystery; however it has been suggested and believed by many that The Horse You Came In On was his last stop before his passing. Through the years many employees & patrons alike have experienced what they believe paranormal activities at the hand of Mr.Poe (some employees, going as far as resigning from their duties). The Horse is the largest on premise Jack Daniel's Bar in the state of Maryland. Per square foot, the most Jack Daniel's is consumed within our four walls than any other pub, saloon, or tavern in the WORLD. Check out our Jack Daniel's Club with over Five Hundred Members and or try one of our Home-Made Jack Daniel's Infused spirits. We welcome you to check us out, grab a cold beer, try some Maryland crab dip and enjoy live local music in our homey & Historical atmosphere. Open at 11 A.M. Daily for Lunch and Live Entertainment, saddle up & stay a while.

“A must stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

This place is real cool! Right in the heart of the action at Fells Point. Bar stools are shaped like saddles, very dimly lit which adds to the ambiance. Good selection of beers and liquors, and nightly entertainment. The night I was here there was no cover charge. It's definitely worth the stop for a cold one.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Great bar to kick back and hear some great local musicians. The have music all day on the weekends and lots of Jack Daniels. They even have homemade infused flavors. Lots of activity and people frolicking to the tunes. Typical bar food available.
Ask about the ghosts.

“Fun night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Went with a group of 12 to celebrate a friend's birthday. Live music was good. It was a bit crowded and we kept getting bumped into. Food was average for bar food. Waffle fries and crab pretzel were pretty good. Overall a fun night.

“Best of Fels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is a great place to go with a group or just by yourself. Staff is awesome and friendly. Old #7 club is a great draw and fits the decor to a T. Try the infused Jack shots and atmospere.

“I Will Be Back Again & Again!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Wow! Great little place, not what I expected from the outside. My wife and I went to check it out on a co-worker's recommendation, he said "This is the best bar around, it's what I would open if I had a bar" and he was right!!!

Great Crabcake Sandwich, best one in any bar in town and at a fair price, my wife had a burger...outstanding. Grab a bite, Natty BOH & a shot of Jack, you just might get mistaken for a regular. Well, what are waiting for...GO!
