Heavy Seas Alehouse is a place where sailors tell stories but pyrates make legends! It is high time fans of Heavy Seas Beer are able to experience Baltimore’s best and locally owned craft brewery in its own ship. Our menu features fresh and seasonal ingredients that we source locally whenever possible. The dishes are simple in appearance with bold and assertive flavors that stand up to the intense beers we are known for…ARRRRGGGHHHH! The Alehouse is located in the Tack Factory building and combines the charm and character of the historic space with the bold industrial elements reminiscent of the Holland Tack Factory that occupied the building for more than 90 years.

Kevin and his team did a great job making my husband's birthday special! Our server was phenomenal and accommodated our somewhat needy bunch. I was worried about bringing a large group here, but giving them notice proved to make the experience super enjoyable. Everyone had a great timed and seemed to enjoy their food. The menu is your classic American bar fare. We loved the tots (we had the cheese &bacon and crab dip ones). The fish and chips were fried perfectly and the Jalepeno bacon is Really special!

The food wasn't that great-- pretty basic and not very tasty... but the service was good and we loved the beer. They have a huge selection of unique beers, so if you're a beer person-- you'll love it. I'd recommend Heavy Seas for the beer over the food definitely.

small dinner plates left on the table for our use were all dirty. Restaurant was at best 25% full and service was so slow. In fact we believe one of the servers on duty (female) was actually drunk or intoxicated.

Too many items listed on the menu that were not available.

Went for Mother's Day and it was pretty disappointing. Food was regular menu ( lunch/brunch) and had hoped for something a little more than everyday fare. Nothing on the menu was remarkable. It reminded me of an Applebees. Service was challenging at best. The restaurant was pretty empty and we struggled to get beverages. They were also in the process of switching distributors and had no beer. That is a complete failure in management. Not sure I will return based off of this.

Great beers and good fish tacos. They also have a nice outdoor courtyard with TV's, tables and smoking area.

We've been here twice and had a great time each time! The service staff is wonderful, the beer is good, and the food is a perfect accompaniment.

Food was good, though burgers and salmon were both a bit smaller than expected. We liked the location and the decor. Service was good as well.

Glad we came Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The food as good, the beer was great, and the service was excellent. I'm looking forward to coming back in the warmer weather to enjoy the outdoor seating.

Our waiter, TJ, was informative and attentive. Food was delicious. Had their year-round selection as well as some that you could only get there, so that was nice.

Beer was good. Service was not great. Had a private party in the front bar area that seemed to affect service and the food for the rest of the restaurant.

My husband and I love this place. The food is always good and the beer is great. I saw they were offering a deal on brunch and jumped at the chance to go, inviting some friends to join. We had a great, relaxing time with a small but tasty brunch buffet. The chicken in particular was really tasty- well seasoned and still juicy inside.

Very disappointing meal at Heavy Seas. First they were out of olives for the one of the two people who wanted a cocktail. Then they were out of the non-alcoholic beer that they advertised. The alcoholic beers were good however. Dinner was barely passable - heavy and greasy. There were oysters in the heavily coated oyster poor boys? Finally, the bills for the two cocktail orders did not add up. They had added two dollars for good liquor but did not show it as an item, only in the totals. So the tab total did not match the itemized total. Would recommend Heavy Seas only for a beer with friends.
