After being seated we had to go find our waiter, who was very nice and attentive. The tenderloin appetizer had very chewy meat and the shrimp was also tough. My burger was good but not great and the seafood club had very little seafood on it.

We were disappointed. The cream of crab soup had bits of shell in every bite. The filet was too garlicky and the asparagus was over done. The salmon added to my salad was a very small portion for the cost. Overall, we got very little food for a 160$ bill, that only included 2 glasses of wine and a beer.

Noise: We were there when it opened on a Thursday. Few people but noisy--mostly due to accoustics, I think. We wouldn't want to be there on a weekend. We ate inside, outside would have been a better choice.
Food: we had four oysters 2 fried, 2 Rockefeller--for $16. The fried were small and too fried, too much batter. The Rockefeller were great.
We split a $29 grilled cheese, with bacon and crab imperial. It was delicious! It was so rich and big that even the half was hard to eat. We had been out the night before and didn't want anything but water to drink. They brought it in an ice bucket and served in red wine glasses. We enjoyed it, even though it was a step away when we wanted to refill our glasses. We would have ordered another bottle, had the waiter asked.
Would we go back? Yes? Our expectations would be more realistic. It is a bar, after all!

We dined on a late August Monday evening, kindly seated in a quiet corner outdoors (great view, cool enough even on a sweltering day). Service was prompt, friendly, and efficient. We ordered a large Cobb salad to split (it is really big!) and each off the appetizer menu, moules frit and steak lettuce wraps. I ordered 1 glass of wine, the Albarino, which was great (this with the backing of a 2000 bottle cellar at home) Before we had anything but water and wine, rain threatened and all moved inside. So much for phone app weather. The noise level was deafening. Across a small table, 1 in 3 shouted words could be understood. We ate in disappointed silence, ordering coffee to wait out the rain. Food was delicious, as good as I have eaten out in Baltimore. It is expensive but not outlandish given the service and location. However, I will never go again unless it is certain I can find a shaded table outside. The noise for me is a difference between a 2 and a 10 no matter the quality of food and wine.

The view allows a great opportunity for people watching along the harbor. Nice spot for drinks and sampling of small plates of fresh seafood. However the service failed when the sequence of drinks were off. Our oysters came out first, then our entree, finally our cocktails and our oysters Rockefeller came out with the check.

Made a special trip from Philadelphia to Baltimore after 4 years just for the crab dip! Chesapeake club was stacked high and the lobster roll was bursting with lobster. Just lobster...and butter of course! Even though we couldn't finish our sandwiches, we somehow had room to finish off the s'more blondie dessert! Outdoor seating was beautiful!

Very nice and pleasant staff. Went there to celebrate and an anniversary and they were very accommodating and acknowledged our celebration. Seafood tower and the tuna poke was great. Paired well with the “Mr. Brown”. Will definitely go back next time I’m in town.

We were looking for a seafood restaurant in Baltimore Inner Harbor, & lucky for us, most of them were not open for lunch on the day that we wanted. This restaurant is very classy, has a beautiful view of the harbor & the food is delicious. I had the sesame crusted salmon, which was so good!! My husband had the crab bisque which was good, but a little salty. He also had a delicious cobb salad that was a very good size. We will definitely go there again when we return to the Harbor.

We came from out of town to celebrate a birthday and anniversary and we're recommend to the loch bar by a friend. The service was outstanding, our waitress Kenisha could not have been more friendly and the level of hustle shown by the manager was impressive. Tunde was bussing tables, delivering food and drinks and made sure to touch base with every single customer. He was constantly scanning the room making sure everything was covered and all were happy. Now the food....holy smokes!!!! We live 4.5hrs away and I would gladly drive down just to have the crab cakes again. They were absolutely out of this world. When I tell you all crab, NO filler. They are worth every single penny. The atmosphere was very cool and casual. There was a young man singing and we asked him to play our wedding song and we danced in the restaurant! This place is an absolute must if you visit the inner harbor.

We made a reservation, walked in and were greeted with a blank stare. We asked the hostess how she was doing and didn't even get a response then. Sat at the table for 20 minutes before having to tell the hostess we needed a server. Oysters were really good quality, its a shame these Atlas restaurants have fallen off in terms of sevice.
