"The Annabel Lee Tavern is a neighborhood bar, a tribute to one of Baltimore's most famous residents, Edgar Allen Poe. At Annabel Lee Tavern you can enjoy food, micro brews, conversations with friends, a game of darts, or watch the Ravens or Orioles game by candle light."
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.
"Wine shop where you can enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail at the bar or outside. In addition to wine, choose from a unique selection of gourmet artisan cheeses, savory snacks, specialty brews, spirits and accessories. In Store Tastings every Tuesday $25 per person."
Happy hour Thursdays and Fridays from 7-9 p.m., and DJ dance parties several nights a week.
"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."
Della Rose's second location.
"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!"
On the outskirts of Canton, Geckos' serves surprisingly good Southwestern cuisine in cheerful Santa Fe-influenced surroundings. The food tastes fresh and wholesome (a dandy mango-chipotle sauce shows up several times on the menu), and there are good selections for vegetarians, like the wild-mushroom-and-cheese enchilada packed with shiitake, cremini, and portobello mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, and feta and goat cheese. Seek out the chilaquiles, a “poor-man's lasagna,” and the persuasive Key lime pie. The multilevel dining areas help diners avoid the college-crowd ambiance packed into the bar and around the pool tables.
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.
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.
In addition to the expected wings, coconut shrimp, and variously outfitted burgers (served on good corn-dusted rolls), this eager Canton tavern trots out an ambitious roster of food--pecan-encrusted grouper, and a sesame-encrusted tuna tower. The results have been uneven, especially the sometimes funny-tasting sauces, but soups and the toothsome steak sandwich are safe bets. Warm service, spiffy presentations, and the finished look of the dining room--dark blue paint and starchy white tablecloths--compensate for a lot. Dine early--the place clubs it up around 9 p.m. Brunch on Sunday and Saturday features creamed chipped beef, a breakfast lasagna, and a Bloody Mary “smorgasbord.”
This charming Canton lunch spot offers familiar-sounding sandwiches - from the smoked turkey to the tuna melt - dressed in fancier duds. Jarlesberg cheese and basil pesto mayo on focaccia for the turkey, artichoke hearts and oregano on wheat roll for the tuna.
Sometimes, usually in the wee hours before dawn, you just gotta have a chicken liver omelet. Or a fried-egg sandwich made with burger, ham, and cheese. Or cinnamon raisin French toast. Or all three, to really bring on the food coma. If that's the case, strap on the feed bag at Sip and Bite, a 24-hour diner that has been a local institution for nearly three generations. The daily specials can sate more refined appetites, too.
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!
This entertaining spot does its best work with meat: a perfect espresso-rubbed flatiron steak, braised short ribs. The bar downstairs offers hamburgers, beer-battered onion rings, and sports on TV.
