It was like eating in New Orleans. The menu was quite varied and there were selections that were not outstanding. The crab cakes which were starters were perhaps the best we had ever eaten. The shrimp jambalaya was also a real winner, along with the...More

I found Ethel's during one of my eastcoast trek's three years ago. It is outside of Baltimore proper but very accessible. I ditched renting a car years ago and one of the great things about Ethel's is it is right on the MARC light rail...More

Great atmosphere and amazing food. Tastes fresh and extremely flavorful. I had a pasta dish with a cream sauce that was so good I couldn't stop moaning. My husband had the jumbalaya and was in love with it. The portions are huge.

Went here based on a recommendation from a coworker. I was told it was excellent, but was skeptical. It was a quaint little restaurant in Mt. Washington. We tried two of the specials: soft shell crab and the short ribs. Both were absolutely amazing. Food...More

I can't say enough good about the meal I had there. Guess I got lucky, because they were doing a crawfish boil while I was there! The crawfish were cooked just right so I could pinch the meat out of the tails, and the maque...More

We serve an innovative mix of Cajun / Creole cuisine and local Maryland fare that utilizes both Chesapeake Bay and New Orleans flavors. From sweet corn to blue crabs, rockfish, shrimp, crawdads and more, the delights of these two regions abound and the heritage of preparing the local fare runs deep in the culture of both regions. Just as summer in Baltimore would not be complete without a crab cake or picnic of steamed crabs smothered in Old Bay, neither would any trip to New Orleans be complete without a sampling of Gumbo, Jambalaya, or a Po'Boy. We have dubbed our food Maryland Creole Cuisine. Items such as Crab and Shrimp Gumbo, Blackened Rockfish, and Pan Fried Oysters with Remoulade are just a few samplings of how wonderfully the flavors of Maryland and Louisiana blend.
