Rated one of the top restaurants in Baltimore, Peter's Inn is located in the historic waterfront neighborhood of Fells Point. The decidedly American menu changes almost nightly due to the kitchens use of the freshest ingredients possible. Locals know to arrive early to grab seats since they don't accept reservations, and that the best ones are outside. Their half price wine Wednesday nights are a huge hit.
This small, somewhat eccentric café is a local favorite. The décor is certainly part of the café's charm- bright primary colors abound, the thrift store furniture is mismatched; mannequins, dolls and other toys decorate the window sills, walls and even the ceiling. But it's the food that keeps the locals coming back. It's a terrific blend of traditional home cooking and lighter vegetarian fare. The French toast (served all day) is one of the city's treasures.
Searching for a great seafood joint in Baltimore was a hard feat before 2003. Since then, Mama's On the Half Shell has risen to be the city's all-time favorite restaurant for those seafood delicacies everyone loves. Located in the Canton area of Baltimore, this crustacean focused establishment is perfect for dining out with the family, friends or that special someone. Their raw bar selection changes daily, but their crab cakes with mustard are almost always available.
There is an informal tradition among Baltimore waitresses to address customers as 'Hon' (pronounced to rhyme with 'bun.') Over the years, the term has come to symbolize the town's casual hospitality' and as such, it suits this friendly café perfectly. Located in Hampden, it has the ambiance of a suburban kitchen circa 1955, and the menu fits the décor just right. Dishes like Four Cheese Lasagna and 'Much Better Than Mom's' Meatloaf are guaranteed to stick to your ribs, and the Crab cake Platter does Baltimore proud.
While the pub offers a relaxed and informal atmosphere, reservations are suggested due to the extreme popularity! Located in the Beverly Hills area of Baltimore, Koco's Pub is known for their mouth-watering crab cakes, which can even be ordered in bulk and shipped overnight! The rest of their menu is comprised of various seafood options and a few land-lover dishes as well. The patrons are usually a mix of locals and well-informed tourists vying for the crabmeat laden, cakes in this hole-in-the-wall Baltimore establishment.
