    Great place to go after the game. Owner visited our table and was very nice. Service was great. Food was the right temperature. Too full for dessert. Highly recommend.

    Probably a great place for a few beers and bar food before or after a game but not otherwise. Visited a few hours after the game last Sunday. Server was uninterested, menu was uninspiring, food mediocre and bland.

    The food was pretty bad. The chicken was severely overcooked, the wrap came with two of the main ingredients missing, and the service was hard to find. The onion rings were good, but not enough ketchup.

    Great place for dinner before the Orioles game. Food is very good, service is prompt and friendly and prices are much better than Camden Yards for much better food, leisurely, fun dining and good service. Also you don't have to eat balancing your food on your knees like at the ballpark and the prices are not absolutely outrageous like Camden Yards. Great selection of both bar type food and also some upscale type things (mussels, etc.) We go here before every game now and pass up the Camden Yards prices and lousy food. I would suggest you do the same. Go early, have a good, reasonably priced dinner and then a 2 minute walk to the game!

    This place is located across from Camden Yards, making it a more 'upscale' alternative to the average bar scene after an Orioles game. My party was there for lunch after graduation from UMB, making it a good location for a reasonable and quick bite. The food was very good - I had the BLT sandwich while the rest of my family either had the crab cake sandwich, the short rib BBQ pork sandwich or the cobb salad. The people who had the crab cakes thought that the kaiser roll was stale and the french fries had been sitting out too long, but everything else was great. My one complaint is the service. Water glasses were rarely refilled and it was difficult to find our waitress, but the place was busy so that can be somewhat explained.

    Great place to eat prior to seeing a ballgame at Camden Yards. Food is delicious - - casual, but done well. The BLTs are great. Mine had perfectly cooked bacon, avocado, mozzerella, and a fried tomato - - yum!!

    The menu had a wonderful variety of different foods. Everything we ordered tasted great and was served perfectly. The service was quick and efficient. We would definitely recommend and dine at Frank and Nic's again. Also, this restaurant is in walking distance to the Hippodrome. So it would be a perfect place to eat before a show.

    This was our first visit. There is a separate dining area from the bar, but the noise definitely travels into the restaurant. As a result the noise level went up and down depending on what was going on in the bar area. They also had a large screen TV (silent) in the restaurant, which was disappointing. The bar area was lively and looked like a lot of fun for before or after a game. They did not have everything on the menu, so had to make second choices which we both liked. I had the crab cake sandwich and substituted the sauteed Spinach for the fries which was excellent. The banana nut bread pudding was delicious and too big for us to finish. They were very fast with our drinks and came by regularly to check how we were doing!

    Inexperienced, untrained wait staff. The place needs new carpet and some brightening up. Prices are not low enough to justify plastic containers for serving side dishes and condiments.

    Outstanding experience. Great food and great staff. I forget the name of our server but he was just the best. One of the owners, Frank sat with us for a while asking our opinion whether the crab dip should be a fixture on the menu. The answer is a big YES! We will be back.

    - friendly staff - prompt attentive server - limited entree selection. Good pub food selection. I used it as a pre-show dinner venue. I would have enjoyed it more meeting friends for drinks and casual dinner.

    Food was really lacking. Overpriced for the amount and type of food being served ($8 for a small bowl of below average vegetable soup) and other food was very salty and poorly presented.

    This restaurant needs to decide what it wants to be. Described as an upscale sports bar, I agree with the furnishings, design and food choices but platic cups for water does not fit in this style.Also, when charging $15-25 for an entree when one asks for extra bread for the Brushetta should you really charge an additional $.40/slice?

    Good location; next to Baltimore sports stadiums. Philly Steak was excellend. Bar was invaded by happy hour crowd turning the place into a collage bar. Fun for a while! Convenient & good food at a reasonable price. Great specials.

    We ate he before the Orioles game, the game was better than the food unfortunatly. My salad was blah, the salmon on top did not taste fresh. My bf said his was ok. It wasn't horrible but I doubt I will return.

    Though normally I prefer a bigger menu with more choices, the food was excellent. I highly recommend the crab cake (a must-have sandwich when your in Baltimore!). I'm not usually big on french fries, but these were very thinly-cut (think potato stick-thickness but longer) and cooked perfectly. Great meal!

    We made a dinner reservation here because it was close to the Hippodrome Theatre & they had a Dinner & a Show special, plus their regular menu looked interesting. Unfortunately, because the Orioles were playing that evening, they were only serving sandwiches from the menu. When we asked for the dinner menu, our waitress told us that most items were sold out (this is 5:30 on a Saturday). As the restaurant was filling up with noisy baseball fans enjoying themselves, we decided to have a quiet dinner elsewhere. It would have been nice if they let know in advance that they would not be serving the dinner menu that evening since they had our contact information through OpenTable. Perhaps we'll give them another try someday, just not on game day

    Went on the first night of Restaurant week, food was good, although the RW menu items were not available on the regular menu, service was bad. Restaurant was not busy but had to flag down a waiter to take our table. Service never really improved after that.
