    Are you looking to eat at the airport? Or taking a cab somewhere? There isn't much at the airport.

      In and around BWI is a wasteland. You're only 15 mins from downtown Baltimore.

        I'll recommend a couple of places in Locust Point, just south of downtown Baltimore off I-95 (and about 15 minutes from BWI): The Wine Market and Pazza Luna. Both open for lunch, with decent menus.

        Unless you get a rental car, you're limited to dining at airport hotels with shuttles. Getting a cab back from any other restaurant will be difficult.

          If you factor in the time spent waiting for whichever hotel shuttle (round-trip), you could hop in a cab and be in Locust Point in less than 15 minutes. You'd just need to be able to call a cab from whichever restaurant to take you back to BWI.

            Getting a cab back from a restaurant is as easy as asking the restaurant to call you a cab or calling one yourself.....pretty simple.

              Cabs in Baltimore are not so easy or dependable, especially if it rains and especially outside of downtown. If money is not a factor, car service is an idea.

                I beg to differ...I use cabs every single night on the weekends and have had very few problems. I take cabs from Catonsville --> Downtown and back all of the time. I live in the city and use Raven cabs most of the time....I even have some drivers cell phone numbers to call.

                Raining?? Cabs run in the rain too. Hilarious!!

                Friday and Saturday
