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). Oh, and full of Brooklyn-esque hipsters. Just wish we had had more time to explore the neighborhood, which is fantastic.

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. Chocolate desert was a great way to the end the meal. We look forward to returning.

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 unpretentious, but it has a lot of nicely spaced tables, including some outdoor tables for use in warmer weather.
