    Fun atmosphere with US soccer game going on, beautiful modern look inside. The crab soup was so delicious! Loved trying different types of oysters. Entrees were wonderful (lobster roll, crab cakes). Our server was attentive and so friendly, always smiling. And the hostess was just inviting and so kind. Great experience!

    The atmosphere was good. The food was OK. In my opinion the fries would have been better if the grease was changed. They were too soggy. The music was too loud. The server was OK.

    It’s becoming a ritual my clan and I we meet there every other Friday night. This occasion was a regular dinner. The food is always magnificent and meeting the M.O.D. that night was another plus. The unfortunate part of the experience was our server (Chase) she was friendly but not very attentive if at all. I understand it being a busy Friday night (I myself waited tables and bartended) But her communication lacked as far as 2 bites two minutes,checking to see if we wanted water refills as well as the situation we received an extra order of “honey old bay wings” when trying to get her attention several times we were ignored and though we were a party of 5 she spent more time checking in with her 2 tops and a 4 top seated behind us. It was also an instance after we paid the bill (I myself requested a box) And my colleague was waiting for her change from her payment. Simply put the box took her about 15-20 minutes to bring,Mind you as she passed our table several times to attend others. Also the change was never given to my colleague; It was only $6 but it’s the principle of it wasn’t offered to you why keep it especially when a tip was given already. We love the place but unfortunately (Chase) not so much..

    Made online reservations through open table for a late(r) Sunday evening after an NFL home game. No where was there any mention that food service was limited to bar menu and despite being rather empty by the time our reservation came open, the music level was so intense that I could not hear my gentleman friend who was sitting directly beside me. As for service, the hostess directed (did not escort ) us to the stairs in the back to get to “our table” and when we went to go up them we were told the section was no longer available by another seemingly stoned fella who spent so much time criticizing the hostess as a human that we turned ourselves around and just ate at the bar. Had we not been absolutely starving and it not been rainy and cold, we would have set out searching for an alternative. The food was good, and the bartender was pleasant. But the overall experience on that particular night was neither of those. I’m sure it directly related to the home football game, but some disclosure when booking and on the actual Watershed website regarding the venue for those days would have made the experience less shocking.

    I might have rated service better except that the upstairs hostess was AWOL, they couldn't find her, and they wouldn't seat us until they did. Then she was less than friendly. Our server and the downstairs hostess were wonderful. The food was presented well, tasty, and plenty but fairly ordinary tavern recipes. I guess I was expecting something more original for the price. The noise was deafening—I'd never go there and expect to have a conversation unless I wanted to shout for an hour or more. We had asked to go upstairs due to the noise on the first level — not a great decision. If I were a millennial wanting to play corn hole, drink beer, and cheer for my team, I'd have given a better review. This is not the place to have a nice meal with friends or business associates. The menu may be heavily seafood, but the atmosphere and food preparation is sports bar.

    I’ve been several times for brunch and dinner but on this particular occasion. I was catching up with friends and it was a first time experience for them. Our server Kate was a delight very attentive. I had the oysters rockefeller and the bronzino (whole fish) everything was well beyond expectations. From the live music playing to the ambience around us everything was great. My friends really enjoyed it for their first time. They already made plans to come back again!

    Sat on rooftop on a cool but nice afternoon. Food was good. Service good & friendly. Bartender needs to be schooled on the proper way to draw a pint of Guinness…has to be allowed to sit before topping off so there are no bubbles. Take it from the Irish!

    Crab cake sandwich was filled with CRAB & no fillers. It was beyond yummy! Side salad was excellent & generous with great dressing. Our server was friendly & efficient. Hubby was able to watch football on multiple TV’s. We were pleased and would return when in Baltimore. Highly recommended for food and service. However, the indoor restaurant was extremely noisy. CAUTION: Avoid if you’re seeking a quiet dinner! Otherwise, GO FOR IT!!!

    The outdoor seating was wonderful with glimpses of the football stadium. Venue is also attached to local market to browse after eating. The server was not attentive. I was very disappointed with how the food taste, considering it’s an Atlas chain I ordered what I typically would elsewhere but the meal was disappointingly not the same. The meat tasted horribly seasoned and did not pair well with the salad.

    We loved everything but the volume of the music. We had to shout (sometimes repeating, to be understood) except when the musician was on break. He was very good, but the speakers were set way too loud.

    Sooo it was my first time at this restaurant and it was for brunch. I heard such good reviews and couldn't wait to try. I ordered the shed platter and the ONLY good thing were the eggs..... potatoes were trash and bacon was horrible, actually bad looking and tasting. I sent it back for another order and it looked the same way. Why serve a person food that even looks disgusting. Because you dont care thats why. For $68(my total check) I only enjoyed the mimosa and eggs. I wont be back.
