After attending mass at the Basilica we were looking for a restaurant within walking distance and arrived here. The dining area is upstairs in a very nice setting in the hotel that was originally the headquarters of the B & O Railroad.

My husband and I ate here one day for breakfast while staying at the attached Monaco Baltimore. The food was plentiful and hot but seriously overpriced and tended toward the heavy side for me (e.g, 2 eggs in the fried egg sandwich instead of just one). Other people who were seated after us got served before we did, and we... More

CatControlled- I'm very sorry to read that you were disappointed with your breakfast experience here at B&O. Being adjacent to the Hotel Monaco we know that most of our guests are on a time crunch in the morning so we aim to get orders out as quickly as we're able without sacrificing quality. My hope is that we may have... More

Read about B&O on a 2015 list of Baltimore's best restaurants and we were not disappointed. The first impression was a little off putting, a large 2-level room with a lively bar and not many people dining. The menu itself is a little odd, but I suggest being adventurous and trying combinations that may not sound like they would work,... More

The restaurant is great for lunch on business or pleasure. The decor is laid back and modern where you can be on a romantic date or watch the game after work. The strawberry pancakes were great.

Another large business dinner of about 40 people. The service didn't miss a beat. Great ambiance. Nice upstairs seating for small or large groups. Downstairs had a great bar and great space.

Description
When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters, you've got to do it justice. We kept our building's most stunning architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches, like chairs and table lamps from original B&O dining cars. Our practices are distinctly 21st century, though, from selecting the best local produce at the farmer's market to serving cutting-edge craft cocktails to maintaining a steadfast commitment to sustainable business practices. If only train passengers from the early 1900s had it so good!
