Stopped in for lunch while attending a conference in Baltimore. The crab cake on the sandwich was solid crab meat and probably the best I have ever had. No filler here. The Manor Hill amber beer on tap was also excellent.More

Maybe we ordered the wrong things, but everything was extremely rich. The roasted turnips were swimming in butter. Too bad, because otherwise they could have been delicious. The chowder was basicly cream with lots of pumpkin pie spices, which I happen to really not care...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!
