This place is located in the Port Covington area down below I 395/I95. Just follow your GPS and you will find it. At first you will think it’s the Sagamore Distillery, but that’s next door.

A medium sized place with seating in the bar area and in the main dining area. They have done a nice job with the decor. The bar is inviting with no TV....a welcomed change. While I was there in March, it appears there is outside seating in the warmer months. The property is right on the water and I can see it being a nice venue sitting outside.

We didn’t start off good, but the ending was very good. We showed up 8 minutes before our reservation and were told our table was not ready and to please feel free to go to the bar. We waited at the hostess station instead. We were seated in less than 5 minutes. The place was not overly busy......we were the only ones waiting for a table. But, the table service and the food was very good. Tables in the bar were a little wobbly but we made it work. While they have the Sagamore whiskey displayed everywhere, they are not part of the distillery. There was only one specialty cocktail with the Sagamore Whiskey, but it was very good.

One of the best things about this place was that it was NOT in downtown Baltimore, there was no fighting the traffic on Pratt Street and no fighting for a parking place. And ...... I felt safe. Because of the easy in and out I can see this becoming a more frequent place for me. I live in the southern suburbs and it took me only 15 minutes to get here. Overall, a great meal and friendly service. I’ll be back.

This restaurant is BEAUTIFUL. We just loved everything about the interior: the copper, natural wood, leather chairs, hardwood floors, stone fireplace, everything! As an added bonus, there is an amazing view of the water from many of the big windows in the restaurant. If you have time, be sure to go upstairs to see all the pretty rooms that they have for private parties. We cannot wait to find a good reason to have a party in this incredible space.
Our lunch was so good too. We had the Striped Bass Ceviche to start which was so good and plenty for two to share. They also brought us delicious, savory (not sweet) cornbread with an herbed (?) butter. For lunch we had a Tavern Burger which was perfectly cooked with a caramelized onion aioli and a Fried Green Tomato BLT with perfectly cooked bacon. The portions are generous and the fries are so, so good.
You'll need a reservation to be seated at one of the tables in the bar, but that really is the best space for a cozy lunch.We'll be back soon.

The food was good - not excellent, but very good - and the vibe of the restaurant was cool. Good for dates or business. There's a great view with a patio facing the harbor.

Qe were a party of four on a recent quiet Sunday night...had made reservation one month in advance, so a bit surprised to have been seated in the noisy bar area (music level too loud).....but we were comfortable, ordered our drinks and looked forward to the meal, as we enjoy A,C's NYC restaurants. Took 25 minutes to get our simple drink order (2 Moscow Mules, 2 Whisky Sours)...while waiting: our waitress noticing the 'delay', so we put in our dinner order...which arrived 10 minutes after our drinks finally had!! Much prefer to have a cocktail before the food arrives...wine with the meal...so that was disappointing. But the food quite good...all of our table agreed. The presentation of a very tiny cornbread 'to share' elicited giggles...it was really a single portion size! The desserts were good: pastry chef from Woodberry Kitchen has the kitchen here. The bill was pricey...but the food good...and a nice setting...service too slow from the bar/then too fast from the kitchen...Will plan on a return and enjoy the better weather opportunities for outside drinks before dinner: LONG before dinner!
