Dark pub visited on a sunny and hot saturday afternoon. Cozy atmosphere, typical pub fare, their own brewed Oliver Ales are worth the try if in the area. was happy to see three beers on cask that day. Rest of the beer menu is a little thin but interesting (some specialty Heavy seas beers). Staff was professional and kind.

Odd little place with a stuffy, greasy feel. A bizarre fry-o-lator device sees a great deal of use and is right behind the bar operated by the bartender. Has a menu that reminds me of a bowling alley cafe. Beers were actually pretty decent with goo d variety, and the availability of half pints was a nice touch. Strangely, it was exactly what I expected.

I love this place. One of my first brew-pubs experiences back in the early 90’s. I love the large fireplace in the winter.

Very authentic english style pub. 4 beer engines serving beer at the appropriate british temp. - room. Very good house beers all english styles. Prices are good given the high quality of the brews. did not try the food. Worth a stop if in fells point.

I suppose you can call this place homey, it is a relaxed atmosphere, better than the touristy stuff. The times I’ve been there they always have a good selection on tap...although I tend to walk away craving my daily dose of vitamin C to combat the scurvy.

Remember the show Homicide:Life in the STreet? This was one of the bars they used as a set. I have been going here for years. The selection of beers is always changing, I always end up with a heaping plate of steamed mussels that satisfies, and the 3 for 3 specials are killer. Yeas, it is divey, like it should be. The staff can be a little rough around the edges, but in a place like this, you aren’t there for the staff, you are there to pound beers and enjoy the company of your friends. This is the location you go to if you want to get away from the touristy crap in downtown. A lot of stuff in Fell’s Point has changed in the last 15 years, but it seems the Wharf Rat never will....and that is a good thing to be able to count on.

We ended up here after a confusing and underwhelming evening in Baltimore, never really find a place to settle in and appreciate the scene. This was the stop that put us over the edge, demanding a cab out of town. It attracted me with cask beer and wore me out with red lights and too much pirate decor. I think in a some way I might appreciate this place if I was in a more succumbing mood, but this place just felt ugly and worn, over-decorated and un-inviting. The service was curt. The beer fine. The atmosphere coarse. Meh.

A satellite location, with a good selection of Oliver’s amazing English style ales. This place has a jukebox, is close to all the other great Fells Point bars, and has that dive bar vibe that some of us love. However, if you’re looking for a meal and trying every beer they make, I would suggest going to the main location near Camden Yards, especially if you’re with the wife and kids. Then again, they’re close enough together to hit ’em both with the #10 bus!

Comfortable, grungy english pub atmosphere, complete with vague urinal scent, wood and bricks, and fry grease on the floor. Good bar service. Wide selection of english style nitro drafts and handpulls, for the most part well put together and interesting. Food is typical english pub offerings tending toward seafood. Freshly prepared grease bomb. Altogether this place is a really unique stop amongst american brewpubs, and they pull off what they’re going for pretty well a homey, authentic pub experience with some solid, unassuming interpretations of english styles to drink. Really glad I was able to visit.
