To be honest we are not quite sure how Burke's has remained in operation since 1934. The food is hard-core old school--meat and potatoes with gravy and fried seafood baskets--while the quality is simply OK. But we like that Burke's lost-in-time menu shows Baltimore's German roots; it's one of the last places in town you can still find sour beef or calves liver, plus what's not to love about a place where potato pancakes are offered as a vegetable. It's also a reasonably priced and locally owned eatery amid the downtown sea of corporate chain restaurants, and serves a full menu until 2 a.m. OK, now we get it.
Eastern House is thoroughly and enjoyably old school in the sadly fading tradition of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink restaurants, with broad menus encompassing everything from steaks to seafood to pasta to baked ham with pineapple rings. As a bonus, Greek dishes like pastitsio and moussaka are available and worthy. However, classic taste treats like mushroom caps stuffed with crab imperial, oyster stew, and prime rib of beef au jus are not just best bets but get-'em-while-you-can artifacts of American cuisine. Eastern House offers an unbeatable special theme menu each weeknight (our favorite is Thursday, International Night, featuring sour beef with dumplings) where entrées with veggies and salad are $8.95.
For a city heavily settled by German immigrants, Baltimore has few German restaurants. Eichenkranz is the last outpost of hasenpfeffer and schweinkoteletten mit apfeln, not to mention four kinds of schnitzel. There's also the wurst platte with knockwurst, bratwurst, and baurenwurst. If you have a yen for such a sausagefest but your dining companions shy away from sauerbraten, Eichenkranz also serves up old-school items like lumpy crab cakes and fried soft-shell crabs, as well as steaks and chops, chicken, and pasta. The black forest cake and apple strudel are worth saving room for.
