Happy Hour Food in Baltimore

Hubby and I are looking for new happy hour hot spots where we can get great food at an even better price. Any suggestions other than Nasu Blanca and Pazza Luna which we already frequent?

  1. If you like oysters, Ryleighs has them for $1 each at happy hour.

        I wish I could have joined you all but I already had plans!

          Me, crackers, baltoellen, mr. baltoellen, ko1, and mr. and mrs. baltimorejim showed up for some great oysters. They had several west coast varieties, which I was very impressed with. We also ordered several small plates which have a special happy hour price, but I'm not sure what we ordered. Everything I tried was pretty tasty though.

          Following that the baltoellens, ko1 and I walked up the street to Magerk's for Thursday half price cheese steaks. Good food, good beer, and I was about half drunk when I got home. Thank goodness it's a short walk for me.

            Oysters, small plates and cheesesteaks, wow!

            1. re: JonParker

              I only ate half the cheesteak. Very good, though!

                I had a veggie sub and felt way too gross about the amount of food eaten to ever, ever do it again. But, fun night with fantastic oysters and equally a fantastic company!

                1. re: baltoellen

                  My wife and I followed up the great oysters with a whole fried fish at Thai Arroy. We enjoyed Ryleigh's and will return.

                  By the way I went to Schechuan House tonight and started with their ginger oyster soup (slivers of ginger in a clear broth with 2 plump oysters. It's never happy hour there but with the price versus quality ratio I think it's always a bargain.

                  1. re: JonParker

                    I paid for that sub in other ways as well....mostly in terms of remorse! ;-p

          2. Jack's has $2 off apps from 5-7 (and 11pm-1am if you're out late) Tues-Thurs.

            1. McCormicks has a good little happy hour menu til 7

                For an upscale option, Oceanaire has great HH deals. For more down home, try One Eyed Mikes or Waterfront hotel in Fells Point. Also Regi's in Fed Hill recently got their best chef back. Worth a try.

                1. re: kelarry

                  Have always wanted to eat at Regi's. Hear they have some killer tater tots.

              2. Another happy hour fave of mine is the Wine Market in Locust Point. I'm not sure I'd choose it as a place for dinner, but the happy hour is a great deal. They have a changing list of small plates for $3 each, and several wine selections for $3 a glass.

                The last time I went I had two orderes of cornmeal crusted oysters in bacon buerre blanc, marinated potatoes and olives, and aged cheddar mac and cheese with two glasses of wine for $18 before tax and tip. It's a hell of a deal.

                  Thanks Jon. What are the dates and times is it available?

                  1. re: rudmansjmu

                    According to their web site it's Mon-Thurs from 5-7 p.m., and they also have premium beers for $2.

                    1. re: JonParker

                      Thanks a lot for the recommendation Jon! Had an awesome time. Wine selections were very nice and they offered a 15% discount if you ate there. Tried the oysters thank to you. Found them to be fresh and tasty. Ordered the cheese plate which feature sage cheddar, a wonderful creamy blue, quince paste, and cardamom almonds. Wonderful!
