Welcome... In 1989 Pierpoint opened to immediate rave reviews with local reviewers, as well as national reviews from magazines- Zagat, Womans Day, Conde Naste Traveller, Apple Guide, Fodors, New York Times, Chicago Times, and the subject of others. Pierpoint opened with the concept of serving Modern Maryland cusine, at a time when the local cusine restaurants were dwindling, and Chef Nancy Longo wanted to offer a modern more healthy approach to Maryland cusine, as well as create new Maryland classics- such as her Smoked Maryland crab cake now known and shipped Globally. Now into our 21st year, Pierpoint offers unique catering, childrens cooking classes as well as adult classes. And as usual, we are continuing to create NEW classics in Maryland cusine for all to enjoy. So come make the trip to Fells Point, take advantage of our free parking and enjoy our creative specialties.

Excellent small restaurant with great food and fabulous desserts. Quiet when not too many tables are occupied. Several recipes are from the mothers or grandmothers of the head chef and the baker. Friendly and helpful staff.

No words. The food was EVERYTHING!!! To say it’s up there with the best soup I’ve ever had is not an exaggeration. Crab cakes...amazing. And chef Nancy was beyond cool—though it was my first visit, it felt like I’d been coming there for years. This place will DEFINITELY be added to my go to list and telling all my friends.

Very dissapointing ! 1 sever for the entire restaurant meant we didn’t get drinks for 20 minutes and didn’t even get to place an appetizer order for 30 minutes. Crab cakes were good, but not the best we had in Baltimore. The food was just mediocre; scallops had no sear whatsoever and no taste. Cioppino broth was wonderful but the seafood very bland . Not the quality of restaurant or food we expected.

I was looking forward to dining at this restaurant because of a recommendation. I ordered the recommended smoked crab cake and found it tasty and full of lump. I have tasted better however. My husband ordered the lamb chop which came out with a sauce that had an off putting flavor. Unfortunately, it was on all of the chops. What we found difficult to ignore was when the chef/owner told a couple who changed there mind about eating after looking at the menu that they had to pay for her open table fee. What??!

This is an eclectic choice. The food was also hit and miss. Soups were very good but my main dish came with uncooked rice and fish was too dry. My wife's shrimp and grits was better.

We were fortunate to arrive later in the evening when the restaurant was almost empty so we got a lot of personal attention from both the chef/owner and the server/cook. Everything was fresh, cooked to order and delicious!

I must admit, we were a bit surprised there was no one else dining at 7:30 on a Thursday night, but it was worth trying after all. That being said, it started to get busy at 8:30-9:00 while we were finishing up dinner.
The menu was very creative and everything we tried was really good. The pumpkin pierogies in a gorgonzola cream sauce was the best menu item we had. The bread was excellent and we used some of it to sop up that great gorgonzola cream sauce left over in the pieriogi dish!
We had only two things that we felt needed attention. The restaurant inside smelled of heavy grease, most likely due to not enough ventilation. And they really need to do some upgrading as far as the interior is concerned, it was a bit rough around the edges. The exterior also could use some repairs as far as the windows and exterior of the building itself.

Plan to spend a few hours here. The small kitchen located in the rear of the dining room moves slower than larger kitchens. Do not skip dessert or the smoked crab cakes.

We really liked Pierpoint - new twist on crab cakes, good scotch selection, small and intimate. Our server was a dream. A bit strange to be pointed to our table when we walked in rather than being taken to our table but no biggie. A new place on my fabulous eating places in Fells Point. Highly recommend it.

Five of us headed to Pierpoint for dinner Friday - two for the first time. It did not disappoint! The chef came to our table to visit and shared some wonderful stories. The food was all locally sourced and DELICIOUS! The price for an appetizer, wine and dessert was very, very reasonable

Once we got past the "ambiance" we were glad that we stayed to eat. Needs a decor update, brighter lighting, just a general facelift, as the environment does not do justice to the good food served here.
The crab cake (smoked) was, as promised, delicious, and worth the visit all by itself. My scallops were very nicely done, and the accompanying pasta sides were very tasty, though a bit over sauced. Still, we left somewhat amazed that a tired and unassuming restaurant could serve such good food. Owner/chef was delightful and justifiably proud of her food.

The regular crab cakes are very good, but the smoked crab cakes are beyond. Everything we had was delicious, including the mixed nut tart for dessert. The server was just the right amount of attentive. Highly recommend!

We ordered halibut fish and my husband asked if he could exchange it and the manager/chef started yelling at the waitress. All our appetizers were great. The four of us ordered main course meals as well. Out of 4 appetizers and 4 meals , we asked to exchange one meal that had no flavor and the owner went crazy. She started going on and on about how expensive that fish was. It was an embarrassing and exhausting experience. We will never return. Our server was extremely kind and kept apologizing for the owners behavior

Crab cakes were delicious and I am not a huge crab cake fan.
Felt like our own private dining room, wasn't very busy for a Saturday evening.
Decor is a little tired but a great dinner and prepared by Nancy Longo, not many owners/chefs cook the entrees anymore.

I love Pierpoint and especially Nancy. I haven't been there in a year. I live in north Baltimore, but I just love it when opportunity rises. We went to the FPCT and Pierpoint is so close by. Plus they have parking. We were early and sat at the bar and Nancy poured out the wine. I called another friend who joined us since we had to wait until the official opening at 5 to be seated. My lamb chops were mouthwatering delicious ad OMG the potatoes! One friend had the rockfish which she loved and the other, the braised short ribs with pasta. No trouble scoffing them up. I have to sign up one of these days for the cooking lessons. They also honored my $10 coupon.

Very disappointed. This used to be our go-to restaurant in Baltimore, but that was some time ago. Things just ain't what they used to be. I hope it was just an off night, otherwise what a shame.

It was a rainy night, and we used taxi service to get to the restaurant from the hotel. I had traveled from NJ to Baltimore for the crab cakes as featured in the Coastal Living Magazine.
We arrived to a dark closed restaurant. We were not notified of the closure even though we had reservations. So disappointed.

This is my third time at Pierpoint. We had our book club here after seeing the play at Fells Point Corner Theater. It never disappoints. All seven of us raved about our meals. I got the lamb chops and they were delicious--medium rare. They opened just because we had reserved 7 seats on Open Table. It was Superbowl Sunday. We had a lively discussion of our book and the play over a wonderful dinner. Couldn't ask for more.
