Great place for a visit while in Baltimore. Crab cake platter was fantastic!
Best crab cakes ive ever had! Very cute restaurant. The wine was great, the mac and cheese was insane, and the vegetables were amazing (cooked and seasoned just right/not overcooked). The wine was also fantastic. The dessert is the only thing that was just okay. We ordered the coconut cheesecake.
Excellent ambience and service. Limited beer selection. Have had a lot better shrimp and grits at home! I found this a little too smoky and homogenous. Salads look good but shellfish prices are a bit high aren’t they?
Absolutely loved every dish we had here! I will definitely be back when I visit Baltimore again!
Only thing i didn't like i was unaware of kitchen closing at 12 other than that i love it
Very nice place for Breakfast, we dont eat sea food. So would not come for lunch or dinner but the breakfast Awesome
Crab cake and spinach were fantastic! My friend had the oysters and was very pleased.
The meal was good. I had crab cake and a salad
Stumbled upon this gem! Great hospitality. Excellent mussels, crab cake, oysters...and the Bloody Mary and mimosa were a great addition! We’ll be back!
Our server was extremely attentive when we were trying to decide what to eat. She provided excellent service which made our experience great.
Great HH oysters and seafood options. Steak was perfect!
The staff was superb from start to finish. The food was astounding, as per usual. I wish I could remember the young lady's name...(topside, glasses and dark hair in a ponytail). She was fantastic and very accommodating. I had a bad short rib, so she replaced my dish and was too apologetic, if anything.
Absolutey great. Great food. Great service. Cool vibe.
Great service & nice table upstairs in the window gave us the opportunity to have our meeting w/out it being too loud. Food was delicious♥️
Service was spotty. Ordered oysters on half shell came after reminding that it was order.
We had great service and the food was magnificent!
I’ve been to Mamas twice now and both times it was phenomenal! This time my boyfriend and I split the (small) crab dip and French onion soup for starters. The crab dip is huge, even for a small, and also sooo delicious. Comes with veggies, crackers, and bread which I was a huge fan of for the sake of variety. The soup was savory with a nice layer of cheese. I ordered the scallops entree with the Mac and cheese and seasonal veggies (roasted carrots) as my 2 sides. The scallops were perfectly cooked and seasoned, my bf said they were the best scallops he’s ever had. He ordered the single crab cake platter with spinach and potatoes. Again the crab cake was one of the best we’ve ever had. We were there during happy hour when they had $5 crushes which were also amazing, especially for that price! My one and only complaint would be the noise level and the tables seemed a bit crowded but with how amazing this place is, it is no surprise how busy it was! Definitely recommend for any occasion and can’t wait to return!
What happened to this restaurant? The food was so bad, we left what we hadn't finished (except the wings)to be tossed away. When the wings are the best items served, a seafood restaurant might want to rethink things. The service was on the same level.
Fabulous food—best crab cake E-V-E-R. Great location. Great environs. Will plan to return.
I love this place! The tables are very close together and crammed that’s my only complaint. Great food, friendly service. Just uncomfortable.
This is our favorite place to eat. My husband & I drive a hour & a half atleast 5 times a year to eat at Momma's. Everything they offer is very fresh & delicious. We love oysters on the half shell & Momma's has the best prices in the area & a good selection to pick from. My favorite thing there is their seafood chowder. The best I've ever had & I'm not a big soup/ chowder person. My husband loves the pasta & seafood dish. Everyone who works there is very nice & knowledgeable about their menu. If you've never been you must try it!
We had our Christmas lunch there. The service was excellent and friendly. The food was delicious and filling. I will return.
Excellent service, delicious food and Bloody Mary!
Had late lunch/early dinner. We had iceberg lettuce salads with seafood and the salmon sandwich. Also had the mussels as an appetizer.For dessert we shared the warm chocolate chip cookie with whipped cream. All very good. Waitress very attentive. Only thing I would say that is not positive is that it was cold in the restaurant. We wore our coats most of the meal. Would definitely return.
This my second visit to Mama's the first was a few years ago and nothing has changed, the food the service and the ambience is the same Great! One of the best restaurants in Baltimore.
Despite all of the great reviews on Trip Advisor, we found the food to be average overall. Our party of six had a Sunday Brunch and I will offer comments/ratings (stars) on a select number of edibles. Oysters on halfshell: 4 - no complaints. Beignet appetizer: 1 - The dough was dense and not fluffy and light - possibly over fried. Scallops appetizer: 5 - delicious, though for $10 we thought we'd get more than three. Shrimp and Grits entree: 4 - spicy and flavorful. Crab Bennie entree: 3 - mixed bag - crab cake with poached egg and Hollandaise was delicious (although I prefer a broiled cake as opposed to fried) but the hash browns were awful. Sandwiches were a 3-4. Drinks were tasty but heavy on the ice. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was nice and the location is wonderful in Canton. Mama's may be worth a try, but there are alternatives all over. Not sure we would be back.
Had a nice time with friends. The food and drinks were good. Abundant food. We
shared apps. The service was good. The only prob was too noisy. Hard to have a conversation.
Excellent crab cakes and mac and cheese! Ambiance was great, service was great. Food was so good we gorged ourselves. Clams casino were the bomb!
Food was great !! crab mac is all that! Can’t wait to go bac!
Food was fresh and tasty. The french onion was cold, but all other food was hot and great! I will be back!
Food was perfect!
Fantastic service and attention for our special celebration. Can’t wait to visit again.
Our waiter and other servers were attentive. The crab cakes were outstanding. We really liked the tavern ambiance which was full of energy but it was hard to hear each other.
Good neighborhood restaurant close to harbor area with tasty food and fast efficient service.
The seafood chowder is one of the best that I have ever had!!!!
Love Mama's, best Old Bay wings in the city. Awesome brunch menu and drink specials!
Mama’s menu and service are great. Fro
The hostess, to the server, to the food runner, we were well taken care of.
Very nice outdoor service. Seafood chowder was delicious.
We had a great time and a wonderful meal. Six friends enjoyed every item: crab cakes were great, so was shrimp and grits and the Benny crab cakes. Virgin and Bloody Mary’s were delicious, chocked full of veggies and slicey. Noise level made conversation among six people difficult but we enjoyed the ambiance, anyway.
