Great little place. Awesome crab cake sliders and I got the special $3 bbq slider as well...all excellent. The corn chowder with lump crab ranks among the top soups I have ever tasted...must order. Excellent, friendly service. I will return!

We will be in Baltimore for the DC march in January. There will be 8 women looking for a restaurant that is truly quintessential Baltimore in the NW part of the city. Any suggestions for dinner would be welcomed

Response from Anna K | Reviewed this property |
This restaurant is excellent. It is very old and rustic atmosphere. There are more quintessential places in the harbor area
Do they take reservations?

Yes, very small place so I would suggest it.
Do you have space for private dining for 6-8 people?
