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.
Two different dining rooms housed in a boat structured building offer an eclectic variety of food. One space features a diner atmosphere while the other requires appropriate dress and the menu items are more pricey.
"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."
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.
Affordable hot dog bar serves up the franks with all the fixings.
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.
Neighborhood joint with a selection of tavern fare like grilled seafood sandwiches and burgers.
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.

A cozy neighborhood pub behind the Can Company, Lagers serves "creations you would expect to find in any white table cloth restaurant," including salads, beef, chicken and seafood.
"Southern. Inspired." is Langermann's motto, and it shows in many of the dishes, from the biscuits and jalapeno-spiked cornbread to appetizers such as fried green tomatoes and catfish fingers. Skip the crab cakes in favor of savory shrimp grits.
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.”
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.
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?
Family-owned authentic Mexican restaurant.
