We really enjoyed the friendly server. She had some good recommendations and they weren't necessarily for the most pricey item on the menu. She also made sure we were attended to, even though there were a couple larger parties (convention area) that needed her time...More

We popped into this restaurant based on reviews. It was early, we didn't want anything too heavy. Ordered some apps and a flatbread. The spinach flatbread was the best thing we ordered, everything else was forgettable and overpriced. Soo was our server, okay, not good...More

adventurerplus- Thank you for the candid feedback about your visit to B&O. I'm glad to read that you enjoyed the flatbread but I am truly sorry the rest of the meal did not meet expectations. We definitely do not wish to provide merely adequate experiences...More

Had brunch here not bad but pretty pricey for an unremarkable brunch. So I'd probably skip it, rather spend the money elsewhere.More

When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters, you've got to do it justice. We kept our building's most stunning architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches, like chairs and table lamps from original B&O dining cars. Our practices are distinctly 21st century, though, from selecting the best local produce at the farmer's market to serving cutting-edge craft cocktails to maintaining a steadfast commitment to sustainable business practices. If only train passengers from the early 1900s had it so good!
