    I've driven by at all hours of the day and night on any day of the week in all types of weather and this spot always seemed busy. I thought it was just because of the location. Now I know it's that plus really good pub food. The wings and the fish and chips are highly recommended. Service is friendly and efficient. We now have a hang out for any event near the Inner Harbor.

    We enjoyed a great meal on a weeknight here. Our server (Jaimie I think) was great. Wine prices were reasonable. I ordered a crab mac-and-cheese pasta entree that was delicious. They have more healthy alternatives. Menu has everything from sandwiches, burgers, to nicer entrees and good salads.

    Offer more clear specials during football games or other events. It'll bring more people. Also, offer parking spots because we didn't know we had to pay parking fees. Inform customers or offer a validation for parking. It'll be a lot easier and let customers know they can come back. It took me 20 minutes to find a parking and had to pay a lot just to sit for two hours.

    We had reservations for a group of 7 on the 4th and it was great! The beer list is everything you'd expect from an Ale House with plenty of local brews on tap. Our waiter engaged the kids and was very careful of my food allergy. This is the second time we have been there and will will be back!!

    Made reservation for lunch right before and O's game and the food and service were excellent. Place was busy but no issues with getting our table or fast service. Good selection of beers. Definitely make reservations especially for 5 or more. The place is very close to Camden Yards and the Harbor so it's quite popular. Worth the visit.

  • Do not outside on the side patio

    Dined on 5/24/2014
    2nd time here. 1st was good. Weather was nice so we decided to sit outside.Asked to be seated in the outside area in front.Was told reservations were held on the side patio. DONOT sit on the side patio. The service in this location was terrible. Ordered drinks. Watched other tables in the area sit and get drinks. I had to go find my waiter "Clarence" after 25 mins. He told me bar was backed up and out of BloodyMary ingredients. Finally drink came after the food and a poor drink at best. Spoke to Manager "Mr Quinn", he was a matter of fact and said it was because we asked for a BloodyMary with horseradish and they did not carry that so he had to go get some - "Wow". Overall the food was good but the service very poor. Won't go again.

    Attended the Michael Jackson Immortal Tour Concert in Baltimore...the show was absolutely awesome. Chose this restaurant because of the proximity to the Baltimore Arena. Service was outstanding. Our waiter was very attentive. The french fries and coleslaw were great.. a little disappointed with the crab cake...but all in all a good experience.

    Beer selection is the best part of this experience - it runs the gamut from Pilsner to Stout and all over the hops scale. Something for everyone. Food is good but not great - it's a bar that has food - no real problem here. The space varies - the bar area is great and comfortable, the downstairs seating also nice, but upstairs is a little uninspired. By far the biggest problem was getting service from our waiter, coincidentally named "Oliver". He seemed much more interested in watching television than earning a tip. So be it.

    We came here before a show at the Hippodrome (quick walk) and service was quick yet didn't feel intrusive and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We did the 2 flights of beer and the Cream stout was our favorite. We also ordered their Thai chili wings and the pretzel with crab dip. The wings were excellent while the crab dip on the pretzel was a big disappointment, it was really lacking crab, old bay, and had way too much mayonnaise. Our server was excellent. We told her we had a showtime and never once did we feel rushed or felt like we had to wait to get her attention.

    A group of us were in town for a conference. We have eaten at the Pratt Street Ale House in the past. Always good. Our meal was good but service was lousy. Must not have had enough wait staff on. We received our meal but no check backs for water, drinks or even dessert. Had to flag her down for the bill. I was embarrassed & disappointed to have brought my team there. Especially because we had reservations. I will try again next year.

    We went here before going to a concert. Had reservations, place was packed! Service was terrible.. We ordered an appetizer and wine, We got our appetizer (no plates or anything) and waited another 10 minutes before the waiter brought us our wine, and then offered to bring us plates. Crab dip was good but really needed old bay. Food followed shortly after, asked for old bay (for the Chicken Chesapeake sandwich, which had none on it) and asked for Avocado (for the turkey sandwich that appeared to have avocado on it, but it was actually an avocado mayo).it took atleast another 10 minutes for the waiter to bring it out. We were charged 1.00 for the avocado. Food was good/hot but terrible service!!

    We visited Pratt Street House on a Sunday night, during the football playoffs. It was rather loud in the bar. Luckily the food was very good. We would recommend the crab dip. Also the crab mac and cheese, and burgers were very good. Nice change of pace. The hostess was very accommodating as we were with two children and didn't want to be too close the loud bar.

    We chose the Ale House for the location and TVs - it was football playoff time. It is a nice place with a wide selection of beers. The food was good and the service was good...until about 10:00. It got very crowded, very quickly, and our server got slammed. Overall, a nice place.

    Our party of six chose the Pratt Street Ale House before a show at the Hippdrome on a Friday night. Our waiter was great -- attentive and very knowledgeable about the beer selections. However, he failed to mention the spiceness of a particular dish and those who ordered it didn't enjoy their meal. It was a little noisy, so it made conversation around the table hard to hear. But it was a Friday night, so that was not unexpected. The bill was very reasonable for the type of food and drinks we consumed. I recommend the Pratt Street Ale House if you're looking for a casual dinner.

    The food was overall good. We ordered appetizers which came out and then our food right on top. We were in no rush but felt like they wanted us out. I did feel bad for our server, she had our table of 7, then they sat her a table of 12 and the 3 mins later a table if 10. As a for more server that's overload, and I get she wanted to get our order in, but that bugs me when I'm spending good money and my food comes out on top of each other. The beer was good and they had many different kinds. The room we ate in was big, which was good, I didn't feel on top of another table. If I go back to Baltimore it would not be where I would eat.

    Conveniently located to convention center. Books up for lunch if you do not have reservations you will get turned away. Not enough wait staff to cover all the tables. Took a long time to locate waiter for refills of drinks. Food was ok, but mine was not cooked the way I like, but since locating wait staff was so hard, just ate around my "not so well done" burger. Others said that theirs was good. Prices are a little high for "Bar food" but given the location, expected.

  • Not the best
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 7/10/2013
    We basically went for burgers and beer. The beer is decent and brewed in house. Not the best in the city (that would be either Heavy Seas or Brewer's Art), but certainly creditable. The burgers were just average. The fries were a bit overdone. So, overall decent, but not good enough to come back. Ambience is that of a sports bar, which is not for me.

    The food wad okay, but everything else was not so good.It was 95 degrees outside and they had the front doors hanging open. It was too hot to even sit inside. Party of 7- one person did not get their meal until everyone else was finished with theirs. Appetizers came out at the same time as meal. Waitress was no where to be found and we waited a long time to get water refills. One guest from the party waited 25 minutes after everyone else received their drink from the bar.

    We walked to Pratt Street from our hotel for dinner right after arriving in town. Had some great beverages, and the varied menu was perfect for our group of 5 which included 2 teenagers. Everyone found something they really liked. Good food at a good price. We sat outside and although the traffic was kinda noisy, we really enjoyed the evening.

    Things started off on a very positive note - even though we were 15 minutes late and the place was packed, our reservation was honored and we were seated immediately upon arrival. This was good news because we didn't want to be late for an event at 1st Mariner Arena. Beers were very good - we especially enjoyed the Cream Ale and the Blonde Ale. Food was as expected: the burger was good (even though overcooked), the steak salad was good even though the steak was cold (pre-cooked maybe?), the crab cake sandwich was nice size and not too much filler. The location was perfect for us - only a block from the Arena - and service was fast. We'll definitely go back.
