Great food and service; I highly recommend this restaurant and absolutely will return. Went with 7 people and every one of us liked our meal. I was skeptical because the menu was so diverse -- could the kitchen make a good bulgogi *and* a good mac & cheese or salad? Answer: yes, unequivocally. I had the macro bowl with beef... More

After a day hanging in the more touristy environs of Inner Harbour and Fells Point, we wanted dinner with a more neighborhood-y vibe. I had read about the funky Hampden neighborhood and this diner in particular--had a good dinner: fried pickles, grilled cheese and tomato soup (awesome), falafel (also great) -- laid back service, fun decor (though kind of gritty)....

The 'Rocket' is a great neighborhood bar and grill. The menu is only one page but the selections change regularly and the portions are filling while the prices are reasonable. There is a selection of craft beers on tap at fair prices too! Staff is friendly and playful.

Excellent costumer service, nice portions, not too big, not to small, everything homemade including the sodas. I highly recommend all of their desserts, especially their Baltimore bomb pie (chocolate ganache with pecans).

We came for a quick dinner and found everything exceeded our expectations. Our waitress was very helpful and pleasant; she was there when we wanted her (and only then). She had good suggestions. Interesting beers and broad range of bourbons. The food was very good. We enjoyed the shawarma and wild mushrooms with grits. Both were interesting and well prepared.... More

Rocket to Venus is a good place to come for a drink with food. The menu has some pretty diverse options -- it goes way beyond burgers to include some international foods and has options for vegetarians, plus excellent pies for dessert. Prices are low, portions are substantial, the food is pretty good, and service is friendly. The place is... More

Fried dill pickles were a hit. Mussels were about perfect, and both the wine-and-garlic and the green curry versions were worth going out of one's way, and more than worth going back for seconds. Forest mushroom risotto was quite rich but still delicious. Beer selection left nothing to be desired. Service was personable and attentive.

Rocket to Venus. I walked in from the cold December night to find a warm place full of noise and people. Right from the start, Rocket to Venus was full of energy and life. I was hungry and had great hopes. As is my custom, I shall provide a summary, bullet list of pros & cons and then a more... More

Brunch was memorable. The place is kitschy but friendly and attracts locals and others for the excellent food and well priced quality drinks. You aren't rushed and service is pleasant. The grilled cheese with tomato bisque was a unique take on the classic. The Caesar salad should not be missed. And the burger aficionado was most pleased with the blue... More

First--the food was very good and so was the service. The mushrooms and grits (or was it called polenta--I can't remember) was delicious.
