Sunday lunch (brunch?) in Canton/Fells Pt Baltimore

Hello Chowhounds,

I'm looking for recommendations for a group of 10 to enjoy a 1pm Sunday lunch in the Canton/Fells Pt/Harbor East area of Baltimore. Casual place, food doesn't have to be exceptional, but better-than-average, as we're celebrating a birthday. The birthday person would prefer lunch options over breakfast fare. Enough room not to feel crowded into a nook. We looked at Red Star (brunch menu is too limited) and someone suggested Miss Irene's (but I'm unclear about brunch availability and price). I feel like I'm forgetting somewhere obvious. Two of the party of ten do not eat mammals.

Thanks for your suggestions!

    Little Havana is an option you should look into. You need a reservation though.

      Yellow Dog (http://yellowdogtavern.biz/brunch.htm) is a good spot that serves brunch

        Thanks for the suggestion. Do you think that a party of 10 could fit comfortably in Yellow Dog? I couldn't find any photos of the dining room on their site.

          Yellow Dog has a big open upstairs DR with space for about 40 and is a good bet.

        If you're into ethnic, you might try the Indian lunch buffet at Mehek in Fell's Point. Good for the vegetarians, too. :)

          helen's garden should be able to accomodate a group that size and has a good brunch with plenty of options!

            Thank you for that suggestion, but their brunch menu looks like it skews *very* breakfast. It looks like an interesting place that I haven't yet been, though, so thanks for putting it my radar for another time :-)

              The Waterfront Hotel on Thames (not the Waterfront Marriott) has a great, varied breakfast/lunch menu. I'm often in the mood for lunch options when everyone else wants breakfast, and I love going there for brunch. Plus, pitchers of mimosas! Yummmm.... But while we're at it, the Waterfront Marriott has a rather pricey brunch (maybe $22 a person?) in their gorgeous, window-lined restaurant. I can't remember what the restaurant's called, but the brunch buffet is amazing. FAR from your typical hotel brunch place. And it would be good for a special occasion.
              And there's Mama's on the Half Shell in Canton. Known for their brunch and their amazing orange crush frozen cocktail. They have a very varied menu perfect for non-breakfast eaters and non-mammal eaters.
