Other than that, very good.

Stumbled upon this little pub during one of my lunch excursions and couldn't be happier. Sat outside and enjoyed the pedestrians and water view. Service and food were very good. Definitely will become a frequent diner.

We were seated on the enclosed patio and was greeted by a very friendly and knowledgeable waitress. Very good food. Amazing crab dip, lobster mac & cheese and the lobster sandwich were spectacular! Large portions at an affordable price. Would highly recommend.

Really great place!
I dined here last night with my husband and another couple (visiting from Portland) plus their 6-month old baby. It was fantastic! The service was good, the food was delicious, and the ambience was just right. It was pretty quiet and we had an entire dining room to ourselves, but that was likely due to it being a Tuesday evening. Also, most people were seated outside, which we probably would have done if it hadn't been so hot out there. I ordered the Scallop Trio (appetizer) and a cup of the Cream of Crab soup, both which were absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the chicken, which was a tad overcooked but still really good. Our friends got the Cobb salad and the crab cakes, which they were very happy about!

My husband and I did enjoy our meal and the location. We sat outside and had a great view of the harbor. We ordered steamed shrimp which were pretty good. The shells were hard to peel on some shrimp but overall had great flavor. The entrees were good as well. Nice portion size but I do feel a bit overpriced. The one plus is that the lemonade appeared to be fresh. Our waitress was not too energetic but the service wasn't bad. I would try this place again.

Father's day dinner
We love Fells Point. We ate outside, loved the view, the evening weather was beautiful, ambience was nice. Feel safe and comfortable in the area. Service was quick. One steak was very underdone. Otherwise, food was lovely. My husband enjoyed his Father's day with his family, very much!

Food was very good, service was very good. The bar area was a nice area to eat lunch and have a few drinks. There were nice options for different areas to eat such as the bar area, a dining area, and a back court outside area.

Perfect Fells Bar/Restaurant
This was our first visit and we will definitely return. We ate in the courtyard which was very quant and away from the bar where TVs blasted an O's game. We ate late and were offered a choice on where we wanted to sit, which was really nice. The menu contains a lot of fish which agreed with the varying food preferences in our group. Lots of crab options including crab nachos which were exceptionally tasty. The soft shell crab was excellent: lightly floured & fried and exceptionally meaty.

D-lish Food and Beer
Love the selection of ultra local craft beers. The lunch was very good, had the Lobster Roll, could've used drawn butter, but I opted for mayo.

Enjoyed a pleasant dinner - lucked out and got a quiet courtyard table on a busy Friday night. Crab cakes were excellent , scallops well prepared but the brown butter sauce was too salty and tasted slightly burned. The wedge salad was well endowed with blue cheese sauce, the roasted red pepper and fat salad was pleasant. We enjoyed our craft beer choices. We would return or the crab cakes.

Get ready for a perfect evening
Great seafood offerings. We had the crab nachos which were innovative and yummy. Fried calamari included a sweet Asian twist that set it apart from the usual dish. Soft shell crabs were fried crisply but not greasy, on a bed of saffron risotto. We keep ordering that as long as the crabs are in season.
John Stevens has a nice indoor seating area but a spectacular outdoor patio that's shaded and cool during the Summer months. It's off of the street so it's also pretty quiet and definitely separate from the active bar scene. Amazing that one restaurant can have so many spaces to satisfy our varied needs and cravings.

Fab crab cakes
Went to John Steven with my business associates to give them a "typical" Baltimore experience. And we were not disappointed - the menu offered something for everybody, and included lots of crab dishes - the crab cakes were out of this world, loaded with crab. The lobster mac n' cheese was also very good. Essentially everything we ordered was tasty, served hot and presented very nicely. The place also has an excellent beer selection. Service was great too - fast, friendly and they were very accommodating.

Tony the bartender
This was my first time at the restaurant. I live in Balto County but my friends from NJ gave me recommendation.
It was a great experience and the food was very good.
Tony is the best. He made me feel as though I was a guest in his own home. Kudos on the service with a big smile.

I dined at John Steven for a first date and was very happy with the place; perfect setting for a first date, fancy enough to be romantic, yet not stuffy, perfect for a relaxing night out.
