Ate lunch here today before our visit to the Star Spangled Banner Museum. Sandwiches were outstanding! We’d definitely come back if we return to the area.

Walked over while in town for Orioles game - easy scenic walk along harbor. King Richard pizza was amazing - I don't mean really good, I mean AMAZING. Staff was friendly & fast - this will be our new "go to" when in Baltimore!

I was looking for something cheap to have lunch and this place was perfect. Really fast service with a warm and delicious sandwich. Also, If you don't want to pay an italian restaurant in this beautiful zone, this is an option for pizza.
