The Lure Restaurant has some great appetizers on their menu, oh and you should definitely try the beet salad. I added some chicken to mine and was in heaven. It didn't look like much at first; however, it was absolutely enough with the chicken and was quite delicious.

I had a wonderful fish dish - cooked to perfection, with delicious brussel sprouts (that I normally dislike!), my husband had an excellent burger. The restaurant has a lovely view and is a relaxing place to eat.

Amazing setting (a seat by the window is a real treat) and the food and service are top notch. Lots of classic and creative breakfast choices. And an excellent latte.

We had lunch and dinner at the Lure restaurant. The food was tasty and a good value. Our server Patrick was attentive and helpful. The beer selection at this site were great. The Lure has windows on 3 sides and offers a remarkable view of the harbor lights.

This spot was cozy. I would have like to be on the deck but it was too cool in Feb. the crab cakes were yummy and not over cooked (my fear when ordering crab cakes is that they will come out like crunchy hockey pucks) but these were delicious. Crunch on the outside but with lots of soft crab inside.... More

Lovely place with good food....however the background music was intolerable. You cannot hear yourself think. Is this place supposed to be a sports bar or a high end restaurant? If I wanted an upbeat pub I would have sought one out. Management has obviously never tried to have a conversation here during the dinner hour. It was a turn off.

The meal, the space and the view - wonderful. An ideal setting for a romantic evening in a beautifully lit space with a stunning view of the Inner Harbour. BUT -- a very big BUT - the management apparently thinks that this is a night club for 20-somethings, so the whole mood was ruined by LOUD, strident Muzak. A request... More
