Situated in historic downtown Cambridge, Stoked offers artisanal pizza baked in a wood-fired stove, as well as other tasty fare. Owner and chef Patrick Fanning has created a comfortable setting with good food that features chalkboards on the walls with menu items. Guests can begin their dining experience with an appetizer of shrimp and grits or mozzarella sticks. Stoked offers entrées like pasta primavera, jumbo shrimp and crab cake. Paninis, chicken tenders and spaghetti are also on the menu.
Stoked has a relaxed environment that's family friendly. It has a full bar, but also offers non-alcoholic beverages like craft fair trade ginger beer, blueberry soda and several Mighty Leaf Tea options.
Food was great but service was below average. Restaurant was not overly busy. Our waitress was inattentive & incredibly slow. Food was great but lacking in attentive servers. We love this restaurant but disappointing service will make us think twice before returning.
Our nite ended on a bad note. Disappointed
Our dinner was delicious and the selection of food and drink was above average. I would recommend this restaurant because it has desirable ambiance for many casual occasions.
Great artisan pizzas. Server never asked us about desert or coffee
Overall, I really liked Stoked. It was a fun, festive environment. The food was very good. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and the bartenders were attentive as we got drinks before our table was ready. The only downer on the evening was the woman serving us. She was very slow, not very knowledgeable about the menu and repeatedly forgot about things we ordered. I do not believe she is indicative of the rest of the staff. I think it was just luck of the draw for us and would be surprised if she lasts very long there. I would definitely recommend Stoked and if I find myself in Cambridge again, I would be happy to go back.
Great food and service, but uncomfortable chairs.
One of our favorites! Great food and ambiance every time!
Lady waiting on us was really sweet and attentive.Food was delicious and fairly priced.
Good food served in a lively atmosphere by great servers
The food was very good! Our table was ready for us and the restaurant was packed with a waiting line. I think the kitchen and waitress were overwhelmed. The sauce for our wings arrived after wings had been eaten. There was a long wait- half hour plus after appetizers until entrees arrived. After we had been waiting for our entrees for 30 plus minutes our waitress informed me that stoked was out of crab cakes- what I had ordered. Disspointing but it was strange to be told that almost an hour after I had ordered. I then ordered salmon which I had to send back twice to be cooked more since it was on the raw side. Even after all these mishaps I still enjoyed the food and evening!
Absolutely enjoyed ourselves. Didn't feel rushed, the GM was amazing, our server was spectacular! Can't wait to go back!
Mixed experience. We were visiting Cambridge and had looked forward to going to Stoked again as we have done previously. But the food and wine were not as good as before. The food -- we each had the wild salmon. We were pleased that Stoked offers wild salmon, but the salmon was not prepared as well as at Stoked's affiliate restaurant, High Spot. The waitress was excellent, very helpful and very thoughtful. She even was able to have the music-speaker system turned down a couple of notches because it was very loud, right behind my wife's head. Now, about the wine ... the waitress let me sample two types of red wines. Unfortunately, both were not very good. Again, I think this also has gone downhill from our previous visits to Stoked. So, instead, I drank a beer, and that was fine. (By the way, we actually ate at Stoked on Tuesday, Nov. 14, not Monday. I made the reservation online for Monday night and received an email confirmation. But when we arrived at Stoked, we found that it was not open on Monday nights for the season. So we went to the High Spot instead.)
Terrible service. It took 30 min to get all four drinks which came one at a time ten min apart
I've been there for lunch, but this was dinner with a few friends and it's waaaaay too noisy for good conversation.
Food and presentation was great. Menu hard to understand.
Best crab dip I EVER had (and I lived in Maryland from 1992-2008!). Service was friendly and great!
We made our OT reservation for Stoked and it went through and was confirmed. However when we arrived (the restaurant looked open/busy), we were told they were actually closed for a private party. While this was a bit disappointing (because we obviously like Stoked), they did refer us to their sister-restaurant, The High Spot and told us if we dined there we would receive 10% off our bill. Since we also like THS, we went there. They did not seem aware of the private party/closure at Stoked, however they were very accommodating to us and quickly got us a table. We had a fine dinner and did receive the 10% discount (we told the hostess about it when we arrived). I would've preferred we'd been notified prior about Stoked being closed (after all, the app DID ask for my phone number), but overall we were pleased with how they responded, and enjoyed our dinner. Perhaps in the future they could find a way to notify the OT app (or keep a close eye on reservations and make sure they notify any potential diners) about the private event and closure.
Coming back from Chincoteague and we were looking for someplace to eat in Cambridge. So, so, so glad we found Stoked! The food was incredible and the vibe hip. Would seriously make the drive from Fairfax Country, VA just to eat here. Our server, Cammie, was fabulous as was their Maryland Crab Soup, Risotto Balls, Meatball Sub, you name it. Oh, and the dessert was to die for! Only reason this wasn't all 5's review was because the bar service was a little slow.
Don't be fooled by the menu on their website. Went for a specific dish still in the website we've eaten here in the past and it's no longer available. Pizza crust was soggy. Wings are expensive - 4 for $10 - and just okay.
Very enjoyable casual meal. Pizzas were fresh and terrific.
Casual pub-style restaurant with a great menu, daily specials and awesome beer selections.
The service was horrible. We waited 15 mins before a server came by after we were seated and that was only after I asked her if she was our server. After she finally took our order, we got 1 of 2 of our appetizers, she never brought our second round of drinks, our other appetizer, or our entrees. None of these were put in the system. We cancelled our order and left. We were there for 1 1/2 hours without our meal. And had we not asked her about our many dishes and drinks that never came we would have continued to sit there. There is absolutely no checking in with the guests to see if anything else was needed. We had to come back to our hotel and order room service.
My husband and I dine st Stoked every summer while staying at The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay. We are always pleased with the food and service. Prices are good and the desserts are a must have. Great place to dine in downtown Cambridge.
Stoked is so much more than a pizza place but that's why we keep going back every time we visit the Cambridge area. They have a great beer selection and the best pizza in the area. Smells a little smokey when you first walk in but then you realize that's the wood burning brick pizza oven. Real wood fired ovens are the only way a true pizza dough should be baked and the taste will prove it. Service is usually as great as the food. Our server was training a new server and was a little slow as a result.
Wonderful place with amazing food and service. This place reminds me of what I love about the culinary arts industry.
Service and Staff were amazing, Pizza was good crust was a little soft and the wings needed a little longer cook. For the price and being in Cambridge are the reason for my review
Cute, casual restaurant with fun, personalized service.
A great neighborhood spot for great tasting Brick oven pizza and other fun casual fare. The crab cake is as good as you'll find anywhere. A good specials board every night.
I have had the Pizza and the Crab Dip and both of them are very good!
Great family friendly spot - menu is ambitious and varied - evry thg delicious - we went for dinner two nights in a row while on a mini-vacation in Cambridge . Try their sister restaurants too - Highspot and Blackwater Bakery - this restaurant group shld put Cambridge on the map for foodies.
Stoked is always a family favorite in Cambridge, Maryland. Their wood fired pizza is excellent, the kids meals are awesome (yes you will be impressed - not something frozen thrown into the deep fryer). Great beer. Good drinks.
Good kids menu! My kids asked to come back the next day. Nice atmosphere where we could sit and enjoy a meal and the kids were happy too. Wish there were more things to do in downtown Cambridge.
We went to Stocked on a very busy Saturday night. Our waitress seemed to be annoyed that she was working. Just miserable. Then she took our order without writing it down (a pet peeve of mine). Guess what happened next? Our order came out wrong. That was after waiting for over an hour. Then our waitress blamed the kitchen for the wrong food. Incredible. Overall, I thought the place has potential. The food was great. We loved the calamari and fried brussel sprouts. Maybe our waitress was just having a bad night.
Went there for dinner before the 70.3. As you would expect the place was packed with people in town for the race. After almost an hour of waiting for our food the server brought the (fantastic) food and before we had a chance to say anything (we were planning on complaining about the wait) she told us they were comp'ing part of our meal since it was so long. Can't blame them for not being ready for a huge influx of people but can compliment them on how well they handled potentially upset customers. definitely will go back next race!
Our previous visits have been great, but it had been a while since our last visit. Our appetizer (crab dip) was very tepid. The waitress took it back only to return literally 2 minutes later with the same bowl (microwave much?) with the promise of more bread since our bread had the tepid dip spread on it (the bread didn't come until after we received our entrees). The pasta was extremely salty and dessert never arrived. We did enjoy the comedy show.
Let me start by saying that yelp has rarely ever steered me wrong...until now. I should have turned around when I walked in at 6:45pm on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, and the place was fairly empty. The waitress sat us, and when we asked for kids' menus, she disappeared, and came back and said they were out of them...ummm... A few minutes later another group was seated at the table right next to us, and when they asked a different server for a kids' menu, she managed to find one immediately! If you have kids, the kids' menu is one of the worst I have seen. For $10, my kids got a small portion of parboiled reheated penne swimming in a lake of butter (the waitress had told us spaghetti since she had to recite the kids menu for us), a single orange wedge, some unsalted French fries, and a few thin churros. For what it's worth, we went to this restaurant's sister establishment the night before, and nearly everything there was underseasoned too. When we asked the waitress if they had chocolate milk for the kids, the waitress said yes but that it wouldn't be counted as the included beverage with the kids' menu. What?! I've never been someplace where they don't offer chocolate milk or milk for kids as part of the menu.
My husband had the meat lover's pizza, which was quite good (though just a touch undercooked) with plenty of toppings, and I had the flatiron steak, which was actually cooked to a perfect medium rare exactly as I ordered. Our food came out well after our kids had already finished their meals (we place their order about 4 minutes before ours). While we were waiting our waitress came out twice to say "Sorry, your food will be out soon - there were a lot of orders ahead of yours..." My husband and I looked at each other and almost laughed as the restaurant was not that crowded! Another couple that came in and was seated as we were finishing eating actually got up and left after they were sitting for 10 minutes with no service.
Wonderful experience at Stokes this evening!
Great experience and great service.
The food is outstanding, but the service what we would expect from a cool place like Stoked. Food: We had the excellent ribs and shrimp, the black and bleu pizza was crazy good - we also highly recommend the kale Caesar salad. Sadly the waitress seemed cranky and wasn't quite up to speed on their menu.
You have to like LOUD restaurants where everyone is having a great time. The pizza and appetizers are really good. The restaurant makes a blackened wedge salad that is delicious. The drinks are innovative. People of all ages, with kids, having fun.
We were in Cambridge to visit the new Harriet Tubman underground RR center. Read about Stoked in Back Roads & Byways of Chesapeake Bay by Leslie Atkins. Loved the Wing, kale salad and chocolate Guinness cupcakes and green beer for Saint Patrick Day!🍀Great find.
