Great seafood place. In my opinion, the only good lobster roll in town. I suggest going for it. The rest is good too.

If you want to visit this restaurant, you must make reservations as this is one of the hottest restaurants in Baltimore. We tried 4x before we were able to get in. Thames has excellent oysters, albeit pricey. We enjoyed Battle Creek, Cape May Salts, Moonrise,...More

There are plenty of great restaurants in Baltimore but this one remains among the top 3. Great for lunch or dinner. Plan in advance or go put your name in and walk across to the Pendry for a drink while you wait.

Had lunch here. It was busy, but waited only 10 min. Service was very good. The food was wonderful. Best lobster roll I’ve ever had. The rest of the food was amazing. Well worth the visit.
