Our server, Chris, was excellence. Very friendly, personable, and attentive. Our drinks were also excellent. The food was fine - not spectacular, but not bad. It was a Monday night and the restaurant was almost empty, but the bar was still lively. We would definitely go back for late night drinks and would try some different items from the menu. More

I took my mom and sister here for Mother's Day, the restaurant was empty for the most part-we were the lone table. Our person was Jessica, she was the host, the server, and the bartender. She was lovely and queen of the up sell. All of her suggestions were spot on and delicious. She was very friendly but not invasive. Jessica was also very knowledgeable about the cocktails. We are definitely going back- it was good vibes and good food. More

Barbecue | Federal Hill, Baltimore

We love the ambiance of this place and have come back many times. The moonshine mules are a treat. However, I come for the brisket... and mine was like, as my daughter called it, slices of beef jerky. Dry, tough, and not hot. I don't see how someone in the kitchen could have put that on my plate. I should have sent it back but we didn't want to delay the other diners with us. I asked for some bbq sauce which made it palatable. I was very disappointed though. My daughter had brisket on her sandwich and it was fine.. .but my biscuit only, which needed to be excellent since it had not bread and other things, was unacceptable. Maybe it was a fluke. More

The food in general was excellent. Had a large group and the servers were polite and responsive. The only down side was the 28 hour brisket was a little tough and fatty. Side from that, had an excellent experience. More

Discover Federal Hill

Baltimore's brick-laden Federal Hill neighborhood contains its share of history. Naturally, the hometown of John Waters also offers a few quirks. When eating out in Federal Hill, you'll find classic regional dishes as well as multicultural flavors. Looking for a must-try? Have some authentic crab cakes with Old Bay seasoning. Ever since Crosby Gaige made the term "crab cake" popular in the 1930s, natives have flipped for these savory patties. Maryland even recognizes the blue crab as a state symbol! Next, you can sample locally caught oysters or po'boy sandwiches. For the less seafood-inclined, American restaurants provide juicy burgers and mac n' cheese. Thirsty? Federal Hill hosts plenty of watering holes from sports bars where you can munch on bar food to swanky cocktail spots.
