This place is amazing. The food and staff are both Stella. Do yourself a favor and try this food. Brunch is a winner as well as the burger, the nachos, the bubbles and buckets. Hell everything is great.

We really love this place but find the steaks are consistently over salted. This meal every thing was over salted! Also steak frites came rare when medi was requested. I think a little tune-up is required.

Went with my two kids for brunch and was surprised at how family friendly it is — they had games and toys all over the place (probably for the young at heart, but we enjoyed it!!). The menu was inventive while still offering the breakfast staples the kids could enjoy. Good portion sizes, too. The table next to us got a Bloody Mary that looked AMAZING!

It delivers what it promises on the surface, a great little pub/hang-out spot in Fed. Hill. But for me, there was nothing above and beyond that set it apart.

This is a superb restaurant. The baked goods are mostly made in house, as well as the chorizo, the cheese whiz (yes, cheese whiz), etc. The chef, Jamie, is incredibly creative, the food insanely delicious, the service more than friendly and accommodating, portions at the brunch quite substantial. The Tavern is situated in an historical neighborhood house, and is lovely in its funkiness....but.....the food, the food!

Julie did a great job as our server. The food was very good if a little pricey for a neighborhood pub. The menu was creative but limited and some of the items shown on-line were not offered when we were there (I'm talking to you, DBFPC Bratwurst sandwich). I recommend the #10 can nachos for an entree or the entire table but there is a smaller "can" option which is not shown. Julie was savvy enough to make us aware of it and that's what we had. Very good! I would pass on the wings which were rather small in both size and portion. Our drinks were simple and well made. Be prepared to search a long time for a parking spot. Without Julie to guide us, I would have given this a lower rating. She was the difference.

We went on the last day of Restaurant Week. Normally, I don’t think restaurant week menus are that good. However, everything we had was truly excellent! Our waitress was charming and helpful. This is a wonderful neighborhood place.
The only problem I see is that parking is difficult, so it may not be the easiest place to come if you are driving. However, if you brave it, the food is worth the trip.

The place is small and cozy. Décor was unique. Servers were friendly and attentive.

We were visiting Baltimore from out of state and were lucky enough to find this gem! We didn’t realize it was Restaurant Week but that gave us and opportunity to try three courses - all delicious! And my vanilla peach mule was amazing.

Other than the salmon being a little raw in the middle all of the food we tried was fantastic. Be careful of parking in this area around dinner. I got a parking ticket. It was quiet when we arrived at 6p on a Wednesday night but it did get crowded by 7:30p.

Didn’t get seated even after having a reservation on open table. The hostess informed us that they didn’t have any tables available, I booked one on open table walked back in and they still told me that they didn’t have any tables open. We ended up waiting for an open spot at the bar and other parties walked right in without a reservation, because there were open tables even though they told us they were booked.

I love the restaurant, the bar staff, and the food, just disappointed about not getting seated and having to sit at the bar with a group and available tables.

I wouldn’t recommend this place ever again. Went twice and loved it but this time I took my family and it was just plain terrible. The food was oily. The cannelloni was the highest rated dish from the server and my sister filled a whole bowl of oil from the dish. It was disgusting. I had lamb and it was all fat. I was so so disappointed, especially having vouched for this restaurant to my family.

Loved the games and various table settings (we had bear salt and pepper shakers). The food is reasonably priced, and chilled roasted red pepper soup and #10 can nachos were great! The nachos were such a large portion that we decided to get sandwiches instead of entrees, but the sandwiches were delicious, so we didn't feel like we missed out! A great time and great food!

My boyfriend had never had bone marrow and he loved it! The chef knows what he’s doing.
Also, coming from a very Italian family, I can honestly say the spaghetti and meatballs is amazing. It has to be some of the best sauce I’ve ever had.

I eat out no less than twice a week and I’m constantly looking for a new spot for great cocktails, creative food, and good service in an inclusive space. This was by far my favorite restaurant visit this year, as all the boxes got checked and then some.

The fried chicken was the best I’ve had in Baltimore. Right down to the homemade condiments, (jam and hot sauce) my friend and I were smitten by everything we ordered. The service was Devine. I could go on about him for a while, but will keep it short by saying he’s a remarkable man doing what he loves and it infeciously comes through with every table.

I will be back by my self, with friends, with my girlfriend, and even with strangers. Thank you for an incredible evening.
