Server was great, food was awesome but noise level was a little high since we were seated close to the bar area.
The shrimp and fish was overcooked/dry and made me sick later.
Portions are huge. Food was delicious. Great seafood find in Baltimore. Eclectic interiors added to the charm.
You guys were great all around. The meal was amazing. Ribs and Shrimp.... It just disappeared. Sooooo coming back!!
Perfect place to celebrate Baltimore Seafood! We always bring our families to give a true taste of Baltimore!
Food was prepared to our liking (tuna perfectly seared and lump crab meat in avocado was fresh). All three dishes were underdressed. Waitress happily brought more dressing and then food was perfect.
Excellent food, great staff, nice ambiance. The beer selection was good, but there could be more craft beers.
Love this place 2 nights in a row! Fresh seafood prepared perfectly.
Food was prepared improperly, had to ask several times for extra we ordered with meal while food got cold. One entree was very chewy and wasnt tenderloin and extremely salty. Oysters were good, maybe they should stick to seafood. Drinks were average. Prices were ok but food didnt meet our expectations. We won't return, at least for dining.
Mini crabcakes are now my "beat that crabcake" favorite. Delicious.
I’ve been there before and I took a friend so she could try the Grand Marnier French toast. She loved them and will be back.
Great love the place.
Our table was ready when we got there. Our waitress was very friendly. The food was excellent and we didn’t have to wait long. This was our second time there and we loved it both times.
Can’t think of a better place to eat, drink and be merry when we’re in Charm City!
This was pick on a humble...Best kept secret place....Awesome Goodness...The Seafood Club is amazing...We left so stuffed and pleasantly surprised...
The seafood omelet was outstanding! My family enjoyed the blue point oysters and bloody Mary's too! Great place for brunch and so glad they take reservations. There was a line out the door.
I will have full try something different next time. The fish and chips were jusy ok.
The oysters were delicious and the orange crush drinks were so good.
We tried to make it in time for brunch, but got a late start so we arrived after the menu was no longer available. Thankful for that, as I ordered the crabcake sandwich with shrimp salad on it. It was amazing!
Very good dining experience overall.
I made reservations and was seated immediately... I was seated in the 2nd floor dining area with the fireplace, which was nice and cozy with unique and aesthetically pleasing decor.
The food was pretty good; I had pecan crusted salmon served over sweet potatoes and with spinach - very food dish and great portion size... My husband had fried shrimp, mac and cheese and asparagus - his food was good but the mac was a little dry but had really good flavor.
The service was excellent - everyone that we encountered from the hostess to the waitress, to the servers were pleasant, prompt and helpful... Whenever I return to Baltimore I will definitely return!
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.
