The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the country’s first railroad, was established in 1830 and secured Baltimore’s place as a key transportation hub by providing access to the city’s port for producers from the Midwest and Appalachia. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was formerly the country’s second busiest point of entry for immigrants. Baltimore was also a major manufacturing center. Baltimore has moved to a service-oriented economy following a collapse in large manufacturing, heavy industry, and rail industry restructuring. The city’s two largest employers are Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins University.
Many of Baltimore’s neighborhoods have a long and illustrious history. Fell’s Point, Federal Hill, and Mount Vernon are just a few of the city’s historic districts on the National Register of Historic Places. Between 1969 and 1971, these were added on the National Register of Historic Places, shortly after historic preservation legislation was approved. More public statues and monuments are found in Baltimore than in any other city in the country. More over a third of the city’s structures (over 65,000) are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, making it the most historic city in the United States.

10/10. Our food, waiter, and the ambiance were all AMAZING. They were flexible and accommodating in combining dishes to create the most amazing, flavorful seafood dish. The highlight of our evening was our server – Lindsey…. She was attentive, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. Will definitely return!
Very beautiful place to fine dine in on a special occasion. The ambiance and atmosphere here is amazing. We had a round table slightly in the middle with an option to close the curtain which made it that much more better. The waitress was really nice and brought out an amazing desert.
Exceptional dining experience! The wait staff was so attentive, as soon as you took the last bite of your course, they appeared out of nowhere to clear your table for the next course. The dishes themselves were like works of art, so expertly arranged. This is my favorite restaurant in Baltimore!

Great vibe, good food, good drinks. I really enjoyed the setting and ambiance of the place. It has a long wait but is worth it. The food and drinks are pricey but to be expected for a place like this! Would definitely recommend for a date or celebration.
Possibly the best experience I’ve ever had at a bar. The drinks are great and reasonably priced, the food is excellent (I highly recommend the brunch), and the owners and bartenders could not have been friendlier. My friends and I all agreed that we’ve never felt so welcome in a bar/restaurant. We will definitely be going back!
