Great food and service; I highly recommend this restaurant and absolutely will return. Went with 7 people and every one of us liked our meal. I was skeptical because the menu was so diverse -- could the kitchen make a good bulgogi *and* a good...More

After a day hanging in the more touristy environs of Inner Harbour and Fells Point, we wanted dinner with a more neighborhood-y vibe. I had read about the funky Hampden neighborhood and this diner in particular--had a good dinner: fried pickles, grilled cheese and tomato...More

The 'Rocket' is a great neighborhood bar and grill. The menu is only one page but the selections change regularly and the portions are filling while the prices are reasonable. There is a selection of craft beers on tap at fair prices too! Staff is...More

Excellent costumer service, nice portions, not too big, not to small, everything homemade including the sodas. I highly recommend all of their desserts, especially their Baltimore bomb pie (chocolate ganache with pecans).

Brunch was memorable. The place is kitschy but friendly and attracts locals and others for the excellent food and well priced quality drinks. You aren't rushed and service is pleasant. The grilled cheese with tomato bisque was a unique take on the classic. The Caesar...More

First--the food was very good and so was the service. The mushrooms and grits (or was it called polenta--I can't remember) was delicious.
