Stine  (160) Minneapolis, Minnesota | June 1, 2008
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 theyíre 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.

Relaxed atmosphere, great ambiance, and a little less hurried than many of the busier Fells Point bars. Beers, for the most part, are English styles, including an ESB and best bitter that I crave as I type, but the brewer is doing other things as well. Nitros and cask conditioned selections also available. The 3 fer special is usually available, so you can get a good sampling on the cheap. Decent food, including a tasty oyster poboy. If you are in the area or doing a pub crawl, this one should be included.

Itís a quiet little place nestled in Fells Point Baltimore. So far I have been there twice and itís been relatively quiet with not many people, though both times were in the afternoon. Pretty laid back staff and we could sit were ever we wanted. Food was bar fare and not a huge selection but good. Beer very well crafted and all there own. Iím sure this place gets packed at night on the weekends for the beer and atmosphere alone. Reminds me of an old sea side chanty home.

Elbow bumping tables but great cask conditioned ale. Food takes some time but is decently priced. A Fells point must. Tip well up front and you wont be forgotten.

A bar atmosphere - hardwood tables, not a lot of ambiance. Bartender friendly enough. All their own beers, but a nice diversity of syles. Unfortunately they were out of several I wanted to try. Food selection heavy on fried seafood. Took over an hour to get our food, but what we got was good.

Just a stoneís throw from several other beer bars and brewpubs. I sometimes hit the place after an Orioles game. Decent food. Lots of their own brews on tap (12 or so). Most of them tend to be bland, boring English styles. Most are very well-done however. Inside seating only. Not smoky. No reason not to stop by when in Fells Point.

Wow, this place was interesting. If I were a sailor coming back to port to slam a dozen pints and talk about me lass back home, this be the place Iíd come. Woody, antique stuffs cover the walls. Limey scallywags fill the place. Tons of their own beers on tap. Nice sampler thing. Came here in a rush and left in a rush, but I still got a pretty good feel here. Nice.

A Baltimore Tradition...One of my favorite places to grab a beer on a nice Saturday Afternoon in Baltimore city. Bartenders always make you feel welcome there. Food menu is limited, but the food is very tasty. Have an impressive selection of their own microbrews on tap, and the 3 beers for $4 deals canít be beat. It has a very old school, port bar feel, but thatís what gives it its ambience. Check it out!

This is my favorite Fells Point bar. Yes, itís a dive and the bathroom is all kinds of beat up. They have a stupendous selection of brews from the downtown brewpub, great jukebox, and a broken pool table that allows free play. Scrappy service is hit or miss. Food is n/a since you really should eat somewhere else.

This site does not brew its own beer, it gets it from the main Wharf Rat a couple of miles away. Located one block from Maxís on Broadway. Itís a dive, which to me improves the ambiance significantly. Food is limited, as the "kitchen" is almost non existent. Still, itís adequate. Service is limited at times too, but friendly nonetheless. And the beer is reliably Oliverís, which is a good thing.
