Seafood around Hyatt Regency Baltimore?

Where is a MUST TRY place in the inner harbour? We're only there for the weekend. Any place we have to try before we head out? Thanks!!

  1. The Inner Harbor is chain central. Steer clear of Phillips. On the far east side of the Inner Harbor is the Black Olive. Haven't been in a long while but search this board for current comments. Also Charleston has some pretty decent seafood dishes on their build-your-own-tasting menu.

    1. if you're in town during the market hours, you MUST try FAIDLEY's in the Lexington Market for lump crabcakes. Order the lump crabcakes, and you won't disappointed. I agree with the other reply, the IH is full of tasteless chain restaurants that deliver a view (maybe) but not much in the way of good eats. If forced to make a decision, I would reluctantly recommend Rusty Scupper or Bo Brooks (Canton).

      Federal Hill has a number of very good restaurants -- away from the tourist traps.

      Bon appetit!

        I had some of the best cream of crab soup at the Rusty Scupper that I've ever had. WOW. The oysters on the other hand were very disappointing. I actually like the Rusty Scupper. I"ve always had good service there, and the food doesn't suck at all. Sal
