Welcome... In 1989 Pierpoint opened to immediate rave reviews with local reviewers, as well as national reviews from magazines- Zagat, Womans Day, Conde Naste Traveller, Apple Guide, Fodors, New York Times, Chicago Times, and the subject of others. Pierpoint opened with the concept of serving Modern Maryland cusine, at a time when the local cusine restaurants were dwindling, and Chef Nancy Longo wanted to offer a modern more healthy approach to Maryland cusine, as well as create new Maryland classics- such as her Smoked Maryland crab cake now known and shipped Globally. Now into our 21st year, Pierpoint offers unique catering, childrens cooking classes as well as adult classes. And as usual, we are continuing to create NEW classics in Maryland cusine for all to enjoy. So come make the trip to Fells Point, take advantage of our free parking and enjoy our creative specialties.

    Great spot for catch up with friends- quiet, easy to have conversation. Really interesting menu- fit for a foodie! Lovely prompt, but not intrusive, friendly service. I appreciate that the chef noticed my gluten free status, and ahead of time had prepared gluten free crab cakes, just in case I desired them. Of course, that was my selection, and quite tasty!

    Even though Pierpoint has been in Historic Fell’s Point for almost 30 years now, it is still a hidden gem. The food is fresh, prepared to order, and is a wonderful modern twist on traditional Maryland fare. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Many of our fellow diners were locals, who lent a great neighborhood vibe to our experience. Highly recommend for both casual and fine dining. Don’t forget to try Chef Longo’s award-winning crab cakes - we were so fortunate to get to chat with her!

    The place was dingy and smelt stale and musty. Our crabs cakes stayed on the flat top a little too long and had a burnt crust. It seemed like you were at a friends house the way they yelled back and forth about other customers they did not want to come in... surprised it had such high reviews.

    We were very disappointed with PierPoint. The regular crab cake was good but nothing to write home about. The smoked crab cake was just overwhelmed with smoke, you couldn’t taste the crab. The Caesar salad had inedible croutons and a soggy Parmesan crisp. The waitress was very pleasant but clearly overwhelmed as she was the only server and the bartender. We do not recommend PierPoint.

    Visiting in Baltimore for the weekend. Researched local restaurants to eat at. Found Pierpoint and were intrigued by its story and the Chef/Owners Cilinary History. It did not disappoint! Located in Fells Point just up off the water in a charming row house. Small and intimate and charming with a bar/sitting area. Maybe 40 seats in the restaurant. The menu is modest but contains variety and the food is really really really good! We met up with friends from Baltimore we hadn’t seen in a long time and they didn’t know about Pierpoint but they will be back.

    When we chose the Pierpoint, we based our decision on the 5-star reviews we were seeing. For me, the menu was a winner. I started with the pumpkin pirogi. The dumplings were drowning in sauce and the flavor was lost. I followed with the lamb chops with "pan seared" vegetables and garlic potato puree. The chops were over-cooked. The veggies were straight out of the freezer bag, to include the tumbled carrot pieces. The potatoes were grainy and flavorless. Instant or frozen, I guess. My dining partner got the mixed greenhouse salad with Maytag blue cheese (that was fine), this was followed by the scallops, which were OK. The scallops were accompanied by a mushy brussell spout slaw. There was a dust up when the waitress/sous chef/bar tender apparently erred when pan frying the scallops. While the Pierpoint may have at one time been a gem of a restaurant, I suggest you look elsewhere. Baltimore has MANY restaurants superior to what we experienced at the Pierpoint.

    My husband and I were visiting from out of town and booked from a recommendation that the crabcakes were the best, but don't expect super good service and the place is a little quirky. Our experience was different. Our server was wonderful! She worked her butt off serving six tables exceptionally well. She was personable, attentive and made us feel special. Oh, and she was the bartender, hostess as well as the only server. Now for the 'to die for' crabcakes. They were good, but just o.k. Lots of crab meat, but the breading and presentation was just meh... We were finishing our meal and drinks and having a good time until the cat walked by our table. Yep. A. Cat. The chef set down in a booth and explained to all the diners how she had to bring her to work because of some anxiety issues the cat was having. This was explained in great, gross detail. Apologized that she got out of her kennel, and made no move to remove her as she was laying on the couch when we left. My husband tipped the wonderful bartender/server/hostess extra as we walked out the door. He explained it was 'battle pay'. She deserved it, for sure! I get 'quirky', but will definitely seek out other restaurants when we're back in town.

    Unfortunately, our experience was not good. Our waitress was awesome but the food was not good. Bread was frozen on the inside, fried green tomatoes were super mushy and the scallops were sandy and salty. The crab cakes were good. I don’t understand because the other reviews were great. Maybe it was an off night but I won’t go back.

    I really enjoyed the food. However, they needed additional help to make the evening flow better. We spent half our evening waiting at various times for service. Food was good but the crabcakes were charred on top, and the presentation lacking. (Sloppy. Crabcakes broken.) It was a great one time experience. But for the money, we deserved better service. Total bill for four with appetizer, entree, and bar beverages, $250+.

    As my guest wrote "So glad we could connect for dinner. Should I end up in prison on death row I definitely would like Maryland crab cakes , corn chowder and watermelon lime sorbet as my last meal. Oh , and a glass of wine. I will ask the guards to call you for the details." Lovely quiet place to enjoy friends and food.

    Amazing food! Must try the Scallops. They were delicious! Crabcakes to die for! So good, in fact, that we ordered 10 crabcakes (smoked and traditional) to take back home to our family. Nancy and Brooke did a wonderful job with packing it for us to take back NY. Couldn’t do enough to accommodate us. Great environment, like you’re sitting in someone’s living room!
