Food was decent but when it arrived, it was lukewarm. Server didn't come back around until food was cold and due to time constraints, we did not have time to send food back. Also, any modifications to our order were ignored.
Skip this place - it's a very average hotel restaurant. It's open to the lobby, so the place is loud and a bit chaotic. The servers were nice and all, but they were clearly stretched thin. It took 40 minutes to get water at 7:30 on a Saturday, and I chose not to order dessert because I was afraid I'd be waiting forever.
Though our server was nice, he was overwhelmed. It took an extensive amount of time to even order. He continued to forget things we had ordered and the amount of time it took for him to come back to us was rather horrible. The food was okay but the service was terrible. We will not be returning.
Food was decent
Lovely meal. Although the restaurants that are part of hotels always seem a bit hotel-ish to me, the atmosphere was nice and quiet. Our server was fun and friendly.
We had reservations at 8:30 PM on New Years Eve after the Baltimore Ravens game. We were seated promptly and even though it was busy, as we expected, we were treated as if we were VIPs. The entire staff especially our server were wonderful. Our courses were well spaced and not rushed. We enjoyed appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts and all of it was excellent.
We had such a good experience we decided to return for breakfast on New Years Day 2018. The buffet and omelette station were excellent and upheld the quality standard we had enjoyed just hours earlier. We intend to return.
It was Christmas and my husband and I went out for lunch since we were visiting out of town. Our waitress, Christina, was amazing. We were the only ones in our section and she turned the tv station to the game we were watching....and turned up the volume. The crab cake sandwich was so delicious that I ordered one to go! I would definitely return.
What a surprise! Cleanest meals I've ever had within a Marriott. What a delight!
Went there with a Marriott eCard. Hostess, waiter was excellent. Very friendly and attentive. I dont know if I spent the entire gift card but the service was GREAT!
Kitchen was slow despite the restaurant being empty. However, waiter was courteous.
Not a good experience
I selected this locale as it was close to the Royal Farms Arena, where we were attending a concert and it had good reviews on Open Table.
1. They could not find my reservation
2. They attempted to seat us at the front of the venue where it was noisiest
3. The menu was much more abbreviated than what is on their website
4. We were never offered a drink menu
5. The servers, while pleasant in demeanor, were overwhelmed and disorganized
Our server did show up shortly after we were seated and took our drink order. While drinks took a while to come out (as the bar was packed), we could live with that. Our server never stopped by again. After 30 minutes, we got up and left. We had fast food for dinner so we could still make the concert.
Our waitress, Steph, was fantastic! Food was great. Second time we were there. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great experience.
We were in a hurry before a concert and service, meal, timing were all perfect.
Went before the Hippodrome, have nite been 3 times. Service Has been excellent, Mike makes outstanding drinks and very reasonably priced.
Overall the experience was very good! We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated promptly. Our server appeared within moments (Kai - very upbeat and attentive) and took our drink & appetizer orders. After a few moments our dinner order was placed. Each course arrived timely, sufficiently spaced one from the other. The charcuterie platter was to our liking with sufficient portions of salami, proscuitto and various cheeses...yum! For the main course the salmon was prepared exactly as requested, sauce and veggies very good match, compliments to Chef Albert! (who also checked on us midway through our meal). Dessert and coffee to top things off....coffee could have been fresher. Again, experience was pleasant, however the volume of wall TVs and overhead music needs to be lowered so you can hear your own conversations.
We had a great time at The Yard. Everything we ordered tasted great. I had the crab cake sandwich. My husband had the rack of ribs. We're not from the area, but if we're ever in Baltimore again, we'll probably return to The Yard.
Fun Sports Bar but not a foodie venue. Food very fried and salty. Stick with crab soup and appetizer
Very good place for a lunch business meeting. Lunch special was good
Went there with friends to celebrate my birthday before going to the O's game. It was right next door to Camden Yards. Food and drink were great and the service very good. And the price represented good value as well. A win all around. Keep up the good work!!!
My friends and I attended a baseball game at Camden Yard which included having lunch prior to the game. I researched local eateries which had received great ratings and your restaurant was highly rated and very close to the game. The food was very good, but the cheese cake was a little plan. Overall the lunch was very good and we had a great time.
I've been there twice and enjoyed the lunch and atmosphere both times. Great place to take co-workers, family, and friends.
This was a Sunday lunch with the girls and and we had no complaints at all. Our server was very friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. We definitely plan on returning to The Yard.
Showed up and had to wait for receptionist to finish her chat with friends. Shown to our table which was next to one which had not been cleared, even though the restaurant was almost empty. Once cleared, there was dirt and food left on the bench seat which we shared, along with every table on the wall. The waiter was nice, but blue jeans doesn't seem to be appropriate for anything other than Applebee's. Very limited menu and prices were extremely high. My "Angus" burger reminded me of McDonalds, only the bun wasn't not quite as fresh, and only $15. Fries, however, were very good.
Dinner for 4 set us back $140, and nobody had fancy drinks or exotic food, just burger, salad, pizza and the like.
With all the options around the Inner Harbor, I don't understand how they justify their existence. If we weren't meeting people at the hotel who were attending a convention, we would have left.
The food was EXCELLENT! Crab pretzel, flatbread, and corn bread were perfect. Our waitress was awesome! Little loud because it is also a hotel bar, but overall great experience.
The food was fresh and very flavorful. My burger was decent even though it was not cooked medium rare as asked. They had a great whiskey and scotch selection!!
Very nice food and super convenient.
The Yard was very disappointing not because of the service or the food itself, but because it was not at all what was advertised on OpenTable. It is a Mariott hotel chain restaurant, without windows on the outside and a good American menu for its price. The menu is similar to a good bar menu, not the modern american and fine cuisine menu posted on OpenTable. It is a good lunch or business meal place, but definitely not for someone looking for fine cuisine, a quiet date night or a restaurant like atmosphere.
wonderful customer service and attention
with participation in the Baltimore "show your badge" program the resulting discount really made the meal value hard to pass up
particularly good value at breakfast - the buffet was excellent with cook to order eggs and omelets
This was definitely not what we expected. I never expected to pay 20 dollars to park. Or to wait 45 min for 3 kids meals(chicken and fruit) chicken wings and a hamburger. Our server was josh, he was ok just came up missing..talked to the manager Luis about the faulty menu and the wait. I only recieved an appology and the im new game. What's online is different than in the restaurant. That sucks, when your expecting something else. We expected better for 70 dollars plus parking..
We enjoyed the food and our service was great! We would go back again.
For a hotel restaurant The Yard is goid. The menu is diverse enough and the food was flavorful.
Booked this reservation thinking this was The Yardhouse chain. My bad, and not even close.
Joseph was a great waiter - very attentive and personable!
I had high hopes for The Yard given both its menu and good reviews. Service was painfully slow and I had to ask at the end of the meal that I be checked in properly for Open Table.
More disappointing was the food. This is crab country but the crab pretzels were served room temp to cold and just not very good. The Maryland Crabcake lacked flavor and freshness.
Overall, I think The Yard was a let down.
My fiance and I had an amazing dining experience here on Monday, the evening of May 1st! Our server Tyre was EXCELLENT!! I appreciated his honesty and ability to be openly candid with us when we asked his opinions of the menu. My fiance loved his crab mac and cheese (healthy portion) and I enjoyed the Falafel burger immensely, it was just simply delicious. We received a nice, half moon booth (Table 38) surrounded by tv's and we had a nice sized flat screen right next to our booth. I loved that factor! My fiance and I had a nice evening out and he was able to catch the playoff games as well. It was definitely a win-win. The food was delectable and the service was above average. Tyre checked on us often but was not over bearing, he knew just when to stop by our table. The manager that evening was also delightful! He came by our table to check on us and we exchanged humorous anecdotes about life! My fiance and I are getting married next year . He was so down to earth and genuine and gave us some sound advice for a happy marriage! I would like to thank Tyre and the manager on duty that night for a truly amazing dining experience!! These two men truly love what they do and are so personable with guests! We will back for sure.
Food was good but not great. Service was friendly but not working very well, as though things were getting out of control somewhere. This sometimes happens in restaurants in hotels, where the restaurant is sometimes like an afterthought. Best for high-spirited happy hour, which did not describe our group. We were pre-theater but had a lot of time, which was fortunate, because everything took a very long time.
We let the manager know how awesome our waitress was and come to find out she was the bartender stepping in to help. Makes how great she was even better.
The secretaries were treated for Administrative Professionals Day and this restaurant was chosen. All of them were very well pleased with the service and the food.
I can vouch for the same prior review from april 20th. When we showed up, there was no one at the hostess station. We picked through the side box and noticed that exactly like the prior review, they had printed some sort of temporary menu on one sheet of paper that only had 2 entree choices that were both seafood. The menu offered was absolutely nothing like what was advertised on the app. We were told that they offer a limited menu when busy, and we left and went to Pratt St. Ale House -- highly recommended, not so much for the yard.
We had made reservations for our pre-theater dinner after seeing their menu online. When we arrived we were given a menu with literally only two entrees on it, both seafood and neither anything I wanted. The other options were sandwiches, salads and appetizers. We would never have come had we known they had reduced their menu to only two entrees. They claimed that they use a smaller menu when they do not anticipate being busy. However, while we were there they were at least more than half full. I ordered a turkey blt. The bread was over toasted and incredibly dry as was the roasted turkey in the sandwich to the point it was hard to chew and swallow. We will not go back.
