I went here for the highly-recommended Olivers line of beers, brewed at The Wharf Rat. I asked the bartender for the best of the 10-12 choices of Olivers on draft. He recommended the Vanilla Ice and the Blonde Ale. Both were nauseating. The service was worse. It’s a sad commentary when the food (which is pub grub) far outshines the beer. The service by the hostess was atrocious. If the owner had been on-site the night I was there, he/she would have fired her on the spot.
Nice, old-fashioned brick place with a very American feel to it. Nice, friendly service, and decent food. The beers are all excellent examples of British beers. Spent most evenings here for a whole week while at a conference in 2002.
A pretty decent selection of taps. There’s no table service, so I sat like a dummy for a while while the barmaid ignored me. English style brews. I had the crabcakes and they were pretty tasty. Barmaid was very prompt and polite. Prices were good. Very much of a waterfront pub feel to the place.
Great place - really authentic sailors bar close to the harbour. Dark room, low cealing, lots of sailor relics - just great atmosphere. And when I visited they had 15 beers available - though I only managed to sample 12. I’m definately coming back some day. The prices are decent and the service friendly
Just a stone’s throw from Camden Yards. I always hit the place before an Orioles game. Very decent food. Lots of their own brews on tap (12ish). Most of them tend to be bland, boring English styles. Most are very well-done however. Inside and outside seating. Not smoky. No reason not to stop by when at or near the Inner Harbor.
Has the feel of a British pub, with mixed locals, ballgame fans and tourists. The beer here was terrible, from what I tried, which included the abbey dubbel, the porter and one other. Really terrible, like infection terrible. Otherwise it was somewhat of a normal pub, nothing too great about the style or the crowd to make me excited.
Went here after finding the Fells Point location closed! The only part open was the bar. Two bartenders for the 8 folks in the place. Sampled several of their beers and I think they need to rethink the recipes on a few, especially the Biere de Garde. Service was great, though and really made up for it. Would hit this place up again to try more of the Oliver beers but I wish it were more lively of a location.
Was there a little over a year ago and forgot to throw in my two cents. Nice location if you are down toward the harbor. Atmosphere was welcoming especially on a cold and windy day. They had a real expanded selection of their brews to choose from including some cask ales hand pumped. The food I had was excellent, especially since I was recovering from a night before bender. Folks were nice and courteous. Overall I’d recommend a stop by this locale.
A very authentic british style pub and restaurant. They menu also has real english pub style food (not the americanized food), but I have never eaten here. That type of fare is too filling when drinking beer. There is a good selection of beers, and most are british style ales. I have been to England three times, so I can say that this place does a very good job of replicating the characteristics of the draft ales over there.Out of my four visits, I have yet to find a sociable bartender, but the service was adequate. Definitely worth a visit.
Nice little joint on Pratt street. Great place to sit outside in the summer at night. Grab a bite to eat and a beer after an O’s game. Chili was a little too salty but everyone else’s food was great, and they have all the Oliver beers of course.
