Great little place. Awesome crab cake sliders and I got the special $3 bbq slider as well...all excellent. The corn chowder with lump crab ranks among the top soups I have ever tasted...must order. Excellent, friendly service. I will return!

After reviewing TA, I walked here from my hotel wanting a small, local place for dinner. It is more of a bar with a very small restaurant included. Nothing fancy but I was ok with that. The menu is limited. I ordered the corn soup...More

The Corner Bistro is just a short walk from the convention center and worth every step. The service was as good as a five star restaurant and much more welcoming. The food was really good. I did the Baltimore visitor thing and had crab cakes...More

I went with no expectations-just needed a place close to my hotel. It wasn't one thing that made this place good. It was the combination of food (crab dip!), service, wine, and atmosphere. A great little neighborhood place. Thanks for taking such good care of...More

This restaurant is excellent. It is very old and rustic atmosphere. There are more quintessential places in the harbor area

They don't have a private space, they are a small intimate restaurant, run and managed by the chef. We had 4 there and loved it. Parking can be a problem...make sure there are no Orioles games when you wish to visit, they... More
