"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."
Pub grub, entrees, and seafood of the straight-ahead variety that always tastes best on, near, or looking at a boat.
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."
Two establishments under a single roof: Dark Horse Saloon is a Southwestern-style barbecue restaurant, and Finnegan's Wake is an Irish bar.
Della Rose's second location.

"Step inside Jack’s Bistro for a delightful “coastal” experience that is serious about taste buds, and cozy in atmosphere. Nestled in the quaint Canton neighborhood centrally located in downtown Baltimore, Jack’s Bistro boasts a unique menu including food you wont find anywhere else. Jack’s Bistro turns everyday ingredients into culinary masterpiece combinations. Sophisticated with a sense of humor, Jack’s Bistro humbly possesses a modern feel with retro tinges including earth toned painted walls, Jetson-style art, and booths made up of church pews on a brick tile platform. Chef/Owner Ted Stelzenmuller combines prime world flavors with a creative flare that ROCKS! 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. Jack’s Bistro assures passion for detail in a casual atmosphere where the food speaks for itself."
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.
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.”
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.
Family-owned authentic Mexican restaurant.
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.
