My wife and I tried Dutch Courage for the first time for Sunday Night date night. The outside courtyard was gorgeous and the staff was attentive and friendly. I had a mock tail that was absolutely delicious and we are off the special Sunday menu. I had a chicken sandwich and my wife had a vegan sausage both were amazing. Would return to try their normal menu in a heartbeat.

Perfect spot for cocktails. They offer a $5 happy hour cocktail on weekdays from 4-6, which is always something completely unique, and definitely worth trying. They have a great outdoor courtyard for social distanced drinks, and the staff is very kind and attentive. Highly recommend!

Dutch courage has attentive and informed staff. The cocktails are Fun and delicious. The food is excellent. We had the Beef Dip Sandwich and the After School Snack Sandwich. The sandwiches came with a yummy slaw and were very good. The back patio is cozy. If you drive, parking is plentiful and safe.

On par with Clavel and WC Harlan as the best cocktails in Baltimore or anywhere. Stylishly muted, unpretentious atmosphere.

We love the food, drinks, service and beauty of the outdoor space at Dutch Courage. The only complaint is the noise level - which is exceptionally high for an outdoor space. Turning the music down would be helpful.

Wish there was a better menu with more options on Sundays. Staff didn’t seem too concerned that patrons were rained upon while sitting in outside areas.

Dutch Courage is my new favorite place to go! The outdoor patio area is decorated so well, it feel cozy and comfortable. We were treated well by every staff person we encountered and the food was outstanding! Particularly loved the fermented onion dip and the lamb gnocchi. I highly recommend Dutch Courage.

Awesome cocktail bar with a great outdoor patio for Covid friendly seating. Happy hour runs from 4-6 and they offer a signature gin cocktail for $5 which is a steal. Highly recommend for a low-key happy hour or night out.

This was our first experience at this restaurant and it won’t be our last. Everything was perfect from how they’re handling COVID, to the food including presentation and taste, the cocktails were phenomenal, again, both presentation and taste, and the ambience was perfect and our server, Phillip, was outstanding. 100% would recommend this place, matter of fact I was texting my friends about it while there.

Was referred by a pretty well-known local foodie and it did not disappoint! The food and ambience were great. Gin is my go-to drink, so I was hoping to really like this gin bar/restaurant and I did:)
The service was awesome and we felt safe with their social distanced dining.

We went there for happy hour on a Monday. They had a great selection of drinks at reasonable prices and we really loved the cheese plate and Japanese peanuts.

The outdoor space is great and once they open it, the indoor space will be nice, as well.
