Enjoy your meal in the rustic dining room or on the patio offering street views. In the kitchen, the chefs create flavorful dishes from scratch. The ingredients are never frozen, and many are locally sourced. Don’t miss sampling the juicy burgers. In 2014, they made it onto Zagat’s list of “must-try burgers across the country.”

Pickles Pub

As seen on the Travel Channel, Pickles Pub knows how to draw a crowd. It’s always packed on game day, especially when the Ravens and Orioles play at home. Diners come from near and far, and the wait staff always offers fast, friendly service. Menu items include crab ball sandwiches, bacon cheddar burgers, and BLTs. Finish your meal with one of the pub’s creamy milkshakes. Pickles Pub begins serving lunch at 11:00 a.m.

Swallow at the Hollow

It boasts a dive bar feel and is where you’ll find some of the friendliest servers and bartenders in town. Offerings include French onion soup, sliders, and grilled cheese sandwiches.
