For more than 30 years, this downtown restaurant has been Baltimore's benchmark for upscale steakhouses. The signature dish shows why. The Prime Rib Steak is a tender 24-ounce behemoth, a full three inches thick. The rest of the offerings, including several fine seafood dishes, are just as good, if not as weighty. It's hard to believe, but the decor - black walls, gold curtains and leopard-print carpet - is somehow just right. Side dishes are a la carte, and the wine list is great.
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.
