As I had to drive through Baltimore on recent travels, I decided that Baltimore seafood at or near their world-renowned harbour should be the focus. And wow – did I ever call the restaurant right. For starters the shellfish is on display at the bar,...More

Very popular with good cause. One of our go-to spots when visitors come to town. Lobster Roll is killer... Kind of pricy, but a nice spot.

Filled our tummy’s with Lobster rolls, swordfish, char, soft shell crab, crab cakes, and yummy Rhubarb crisp for dessert. All were excellent! Only downside is having to make reservations so far in advance. But worth the effort.

Food was delicious-somewhat limited menu and pricey. We had reservation upstairs-they really pack you in-I wouldn't consider for romantic evening-we could touch the couple beside us.

Had dined here in January 2017, and then again in May 2018. It was excellent the first time so I returned recently hoping it was as good as the first time around. But it wasn't merely "as good", it was outstanding! I arrived at the...More

Do not let the appearance of a simple laid back place fool you: These guys are masters of seafood. Every dish was fresh, delicious and delicately prepared (forget the battered and fried abominations of most other seafood places). Service was quite good. Gets very busy...More

No place better. If i start to describe i get hungry. The most knowledgeable staff at any restaurant I've ever been to. The servers know exactly where the oysters come from and which way the water flows. Have had most of the menu. Not one...More

Thames Street has the best lobster roll around! Even better than all the rolls we tried across New England. The calamari is the best I've ever had as well and you must get the bread pudding for dessert. Definitely make recommendations if you have a...More

Not sure. Call the restaurant. We decided to visit last minute and walked in. We sat at the bar, which is always fun.
