The Black Eyed Susan authentic Mississippi river boat hosts a murder mystery and dinner cruise, with a different mystery with each cruise.
It's quite simple: Steamed crabs taste better when eaten while looking at the water, Bo Brooks offers reliably large, meaty (and, alas, pricey) crustaceans at a primo waterfront location with stellar harbor views in both summer (on the spacious outdoor deck) and winter (from the comfortable heated dining room). The crabs are always excellent here. The only other menu items you need concern yourself with are the crab soups--Maryland is spicy and veggie-laden, the cream of crab thick and lumpy with back fin--and the house special gargantuan onion rings. OK, you can also have the soft-shell crab sandwich.
"Super cool coffee shop in the old firehouse on O'Donnell Sq in Canton. Great cozy ambiance, unbelieveable gourmet desserts, pies, cakes, ice cream. Homemade breakfast and lunch sandwiches & salads. Free wi-fi."
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.
"FIELD HOUSE, located in the heart of Canton, offers a combination of an energetic, state of the art atmosphere of a sports bar, with the uniqueness of a classic American pub feel, making it the best place in the city to watch your favorite team!"
A little bit of Margaritaville in Canton, this tropical-themed bar and grill serves up pub grub with a special bent toward seafood.
Dance to Top 40 or head on downstairs to shoot a game of pool.
Trendy restaurants are popping up all over East Baltimore, but oblivious Ikaros just keeps on doing what it has done so well for so long: classic Greek fare served in a simple whitewashed dining room. Home to Baltimore's best moussaka, Ikaros also serves a standout taramasalata and gargantuan kebabs. And we are reasonably sure that this is the only restaurant in town that serves flaming cheese.

We are sure you will find the staff warm and welcoming as they help guide you through the tempting menu items, rousing wine list, and innovative cocktails.

Just outside of Canton this bar offers parking, dance floor, live entertainment, friendly staff, and food that is reasoably priced.
Homey Looney's Pub is one of our favorite chill out spots. It's relatively cheap, it has good food and beer, and you can catch a baseball game, a football game, or whatever sport is in season on one of the TVs. The crab cakes outstrip the usual pub-grub versions, and there's a scrumptious wing and shrimp special on Saturday afternoons and Sunday and Monday nights that goes down good with a bottle of beer. We have just one request--bring back the Thursday night lobster and mussels special for under $20.
It's hard to imagine life before this locally owned, moderately priced casual seafood restaurant. The dark and woody place looks like a real oyster house, one that's been around a half-century, and the menu sticks wisely to mostly standard seafood applications. (There's even a section titled Connelly's Classics, devoted to fried specialties.) Naturally, oysters are served in myriad ways--grilled, fried, on the half-shell, on horseback, and, best of all, in a made-to-order peppercorn-flecked oyster stew. The restaurant always seems crowded as the upstairs fireplace tempts folks away from the lively bar scene below.
This Highlandtown institution, conveniently across the street from the Creative Alliance, has been offering up the thickest, most tempting pizza in town since before we were born. Matthew's offers thin-crust pizza as well, but the deep-dish pies are the way to go. Show up early; they tend to run out of ingredients later in the evening.
A handsome bar/restaurant offering an ambitious menu of pubby staples and big-deal entrees (rack of lamb) with a beguiling Greek influence throughout. Lunch served Saturdays only.
This double-duty restaurant serves both Thai and Japanese cuisine (including sushi), which is great if you're open to inspiration but a bit of a chore if you're trying to make up your mind. Located in a Canton strip mall, the restaurant does most things passably well--Thai food feels freshly spiced (if a bit sugary and short on chile fire), and the sushi combinations display some obvious skill--but it's hard to find one thing that it does with excellence. Photos of grateful, smiling regulars testify that persistent diners find their way, but newcomers will have to grasp around a little. Low prices and the free-and-ready parking help tip the scales in its favor.
If Claddagh's owners are sentimentally Gaelic about the bar, they're less so about the menu, which is free of cabbage and lamb stew but delivers terrific crab cakes and steaks. The kitchen is capable of some clunkers, but who could ever hold a grudge when everyone's this nice?
"Walt's Inn in the Canton neighborhood not only has some of the best drink prices and specials in town, but features 7-Day a week Karaoke from 9pm until closing!"
The perfect place to meet up and party with your friends tonight!
