The food here is amazing. Come for brunch and you won’t be disappointed... I got the French toast and my two friends got the chicken/waffles and the breakfast tacos. I can’t decide which thing was my favorite.

Just go there. You won’t be disappointed.

Our waitress Julie was a lot of fun! We were there with old friends, and were at a great table for conversation and laughter.

Loved loved loved this place. The brunch food was delicious! Excellent variety of options and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. My only note is that I wish they had the ability to split for separate checks. We had a large party and couldn’t do that. Otherwise from the food, to the ambiance, to the service...everything was top notch!

Food was great but it took forever to get our food. It was 40 min before getting our appetizer.

While staying in Federal Hill, we decided to wander off the beaten track a bit and found The Outpost Tavern. Clearly, it was a great detour. It is a local restaurant where the diners all knew each other, children were encouraged to eat there with kid-friendly games to play, the staff was friendly and efficient, and the food was perfectly delicious. So, if you want to escape from the pace of 'lower fed hill' climb the street to the tavern.

Excellent experience! 1st time here and will be back! Had the deviled eggs with fried oysters appetizer. Was a great start! Ended with the ribeye, and it didn't disappoint! We were also celebrating a birthday and they surprised us with boozy ice cream with a candle and a card with notes from everyone working that night! As we left everyone was wishing me a happy birthday! Definitely a great experience! Will be back soon!

I had a party of 9 at noon on a Sunday. They accommodated us, took our drinks orders at once, provided extra information on the brunch meals: how they are prepared, ingredients, portion sizes. The brunch menu is large and has a lot of variety for a table of our size. The food came out in a prompt manner, they checked on us frequently, and was gracious enough to take a group photo of us. Awesome music as well, if they sold their playlist, I could buy it in a heartbeat. In all, one of the best brunch meals I have ever had; I was very impressed and full. I highly recommend it and plan to return soon.

One of the best branches around. Inventive food cooked really well. Large portions for brunch. Everything is delicious. Bottom last cuppa coffee. Terrific neighborhood place. Wonderful service

Visited on a Saturday. You must try the nachos! They were fantastic! Plus the way they are served gets toppings on most of the nachos, not just the ones on top. First time I have seen it done like that. The Turkey club sandwich is an absolute must. It has a tomato jam that adds sweetness to the saltier buttered brioche toast and thick bacon. The housemade pickles are excellent. The MaiTai was all booze but not mixed well, so stick to beers/wine as cocktails may not be a strong point. Also, the strawberry jam to go is delicious but extremely overpriced and not worth the $6 for the small container (about 3 tablespoons). Was pleasantly surprised overall. Will return to try more of the menu.

Food was once again delicious! I had the grown up grilled cheese enjoyed every bite. The ketchup was a show stopper as well - I generally don't put ketchup on my fries - but it was too good not to!

Food was great. Love the environment for a fun brunch spot. However, had two female servers, both REEKED of cigarette smoke. Clothes and BREATH. The older one was rude and loud.

We had a great time at the outpost! Our server Julie was friendly and attentive. It had a very cozy vibe and although the bar was boisterous, the dining area was quiet. The wings were perfect. I got the Cobb salad and it was amazing and my boyfriend love his grilled cheese with brisket. The wings were so good that we made a second order! Would definitely make the trek over here again.

Our server was phenomenal and raved about all of the food. We got the chicken and waffles and Outpost benedict. The chicken and waffles are the best I've had in Baltimore, and the benny was perfect. 10/10 will be back.

We came on Sunday for brunch (with a reservation of course) and were greeted warmly and seated immediately. Our table was one of the high tops (my personal favorite) by the window. It was a little noisy but we didn’t mind. Service was attentive, fun, and the food was delicious! I ordered the Johnny Ryall or something like that and it was the perfect mix of salty/sweet that I crave for brunch (and the leftovers are amazing the second day!). Will RUN, not walk, back here.
