Best pub experience in Fells Point?

steveb Mar 22, 2010 07:42 AM

We are staying at the Henderson Wharf Inn this Sunday evening and would like to hang a little in Fells Point (I know, Sunday night). Which pub or bar would you recommend? We will probably catch dinner at the pub we land in, so a good crabcake or burger would be a plus. Thanks.

      We like Slainte. Good food, good beer on tap, and a nice view. The fish and chips are especially good. And hard to beat Henderson Wharf Inn. They have an especially good breakfast buffet.

        Forgot that Duda's is closed on Sundays!
        Kislings has good pub grub and a good beer selection.

          The Kisling's rec made me think of two others. (Although, you'll have to check out whether or not open on Sunday.) Just east of Kisling's is Tyson's Tavern, which always has live music (of varying quality). I'd also look into One Eyed Mike's in Fells.

          What about the Red Star, which is less than a block from the Inn. It's a really neat space, has good food, and a great drink selection.

              Red Star is good, but it's a very noisy room if that's something that would bother you.

              I really like Dead End Saloon. It is off the beaten path and friendly to locals/tourists.

                Duda's is not open on Sundays.

                Wherever you go to eat, you can always go to the Cat's Eye Pub afterwards for live music. The have live music 365 days a year.

                  Amen. Dinner at the Sip 'n Bite in Canton, followed by a night at the Cat's Eye, lodging at the Admiral Fell, breakfast at Jimmy's. That's how you do Fells Point.

                  Only one real choice -- Duda's.

                  Great crab cake and burger, Resurrection and Loose Cannon on tap, great vibe. One of my favorite places.

                    Definately Duda's, great food, great beer selection!

                      Third for Duda's. Runner's up: Henningers and Peter's Pub. However, I don't really know if any are open on Sunday night.

                        Oh crap, I missed the Sunday part. Duda's is out -- they're closed that day.

                      I can never understand why people recommend Duda's. Every time I've had burgers there they have been horribly overcooked and dry, and the crab cakes are nothing to write home about. And every time, the service is deplorable. But they still get business because people keep recommending them....

                          i LOVE the beer selection at Max's, but the one time I ate there it was nothing memorable.
