We had spent the day sightseeing in Baltimore and really did not give dinner much thought. Went on to Open Table looking for a reservation for 6 at 8:00 and The Outpost came up so we figured we would give it a try. Honestly expectations were not high but reviews were very good. Can Nachos, Oyster Deviled Eggs, Wings, Lamb Ragout, Burger, Pork Shoulder Pot Roast, Dessert, etc... We did not find anything on the menu that disappointed. Food was high quality and good portions. Service was great as were the drinks... Highly recommend...

The Outpost is our neighborhood place. The food is already steady. Our table of five ordered the grill cheese with brisket, fried chicken sandwich, hamburger with an egg, salad topped with mid-rare steak and ten can nachos, so we mostly had bar food. They also have more upscale options, which we had in past, which are also good. The tuna wrap is one of my wife's favorite. We will return.

Family of 5 enjoyed dinner. Older kids liked their meals. We particularly enjoyed the Pizza Burratta and the steak salad. Ambiance is casual and fun. Staff was attentive and delightful.

Went here with my friend for Restaurant Week. The food was good and the servers were really friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that the upholstery of the booth we were sitting at was very stained, which was kind of a turn off. Definitely recommend making a reservation as it was pretty packed and there isn’t really anywhere to wait for a table.

We went for restaurant week. They had a good variety of items on the menu and we each had different items. The appetizers were good, with the nachos winning that round. Every entree we had was amazing and we couldn’t pick a favorite. Dessert the clear winner was the dulce de leche cake. Service was good. It wasn’t overcrowded or too loud. Only down side is the very difficult parking in the area We would all definitely go back or recommend

We have eaten and enjoyed the Outpost before. The noise level this time was loud but it was the night of the Raven's football home playoff game. It was also restaurant week and they had a special menu to that. All our food, 6 appetizers and dinners were very good and tasty.

Had the deviled eggs topped w fried oysters app also really good, my 7 yr old gave the chicken fingers 2 thumbs up and an added bonus to our meal they poured a really good manhattan w walnut bitters!! Nice touch def recommend this place.

Best brunch food in Bmore! Also the biscuits are to die for. Whenever I have friends visit I take them to Outpost for a delish brunch prior to walking down along the harbor. Highly recommend!

Fun, high-energy Federal Hill hangout with friendly service and good food at good prices. It’s been a while since we dropped by and I’m glad we returned. I did grab a dinner reservation and it came in handy on a busy Friday evening.
