Can't comment on the food because we typically come here for a drink before calling it a night. The place seems to be open late and it's convenient to the Residents Inn a half block away. The bartenders I've met were friendly. The drinks are reasonably priced - especially during the day - 2 cocktails for $9. I paid that... More

Atmosphere is pretty basic bar but I love that their kitchen is open late. The food is very good bar food. I've been there twice with a large-ish group and had a great time getting a late dinner and drinks.

Went to the trivia on weds night. good times with a Scottish MC. Free shots for correct answers. I was told by several people that the brisket is fantastic though I did not try it myself. The prices were good and the location was nice too.

We were staying at the Residence Inn and went to this place just because it was literally around the corner and a 2 minute walk. When we walked in we were a little suspect because it was about 9:30 on a Saturday night and the place was nearly empty. But Walter the bartender was super friendly and attentive and steered...

We stopped in for lunch and the burgers are delicious! Service was great and plenty of tables. Next door to Marriott Residence Inn. Also got 2x AmEx Rewards for using AmEx card at the Water Street Tavern in December! (You need to register credit card in Small Business program).

Went there for drinks on 11/4/16. Drinks and food were ok. The waitress asked us if she could smoke next to use to which we said no, but she did anyways. It was not very busy at all and other than the waitress, not many (if anyone else) was close to our table. My wife wanted to use my phone... More

This is a fun place to have a few drinks at night, but we went back for lunch, and it was just ok. Ordered the wings, and they took a really long time, and one of the things on my plate was not a wing.

Only spent one night here, but the Crab Cake and drinks here were 1/2 the price of the more "upscale" restaurants, yet twice as good. Other food looked good too. Next time I'm in town, I'll be eating here again.

We stopped here before we were leaving Baltimore and did not realise what the time was and pretty much had half hour before we needed to get in a taxi and head off for our next destination. Service was amazing and she made sure our meals were out so we did not miss our cab. Food was good but service... More

A large group of us stayed at a nearby hotel for work and went here almost every night to drink and eat. Becca was the best bartender! She was super friendly and made some pretty great drinks and the prices were right! David was also very kind to us while we stayed. The bar itself was never busy while we... More
