IMPORTANT: If you want to reserve an OUTDOOR table, you MUST select the "Outdoor" seating option in Open Table. If Open Table does not offer that option, then that means they are all reserved. ("Standard" means an indoor table.)

To our Indoor Diners: we are fortunate to have a very sophisticated small particle air filtration system in our dining room, thanks to the museum.

We have implemented many safety precautions during this current time, including reducing the number of tables available indoors; and requiring all guests who are indoors to wear masks when not seated at a table.

If you encounter any problems with booking online, please do not hesitate call us at 410-889-3399 so we can personally assist you. Thank you!

The food was very good and the 1/2 price promotion for wine which is given on Wednesday evenings was perfect. I also would like to applaud our waiter who helped make the evening so very pleasant.

Our server forgot the drinks but that’s not a huge deal. Once I reminded him, he brought them over right away. Soups were good. Kale salad dressing had zero flavor. Shrimp salad was the same. Standout was probably Caesar salad. I’d go back and see if the lackluster food was just a fluke. The ambiance is elegant and feels special.

Both were terrific! We had made reservations and were promptly seated. Our waitperson was friendly and quick to bring water and take our drink and food orders. My Crab Quiche was sumptuous! Paired with a garden salad, it was delicious and filling. My husband enjoyed his Mock Crab Cakes as well.

The food was good. The favorite dish at the table was from the seasonal menu, a salmon pastrami grilled cheese sandwich. The staff were friendly and attentive if slightly harried. We very much appreciated the ability to make a reservation as it enabled us to sit under cover but outdoors, important for our immunocompromised family member.

Crab quiche was crustless and closer to the heralded Maryland crab cake. Fabulous. Salads fresh. Highly recommend the crab soup with sherry -- very rich so order a cup.. Service efficient and we are able to continue our tour of BAM without great interruption for eating. A little breezy outdoors in Sculpture Garden. Inside has a super air exchanger for safty. Would go again for sure.

The vibe was great. Our server Azak (apologies i can’t remember exactly) was great. Was nervous when it said outdoor seating but it’s even better than inside. Already have another reservation booked! Well worth it and my new favorite spot.

Great service. The food was cooked perfectly and arrived promptly. The crab cake was broiled to perfection with big pieces of lump crab. The coleslaw was amazing. I want the recipe. I love coming here. Highly recommend.
