Good steakhouse in Baltimore?

PB3nola Dec 8, 2010 08:21 AM

We are taking a guy's trip up to Baltimore from New Orleans for the Saints/Ravens game next weekend and we want to find a great spot for dinner on saturday night. There will be six us and price isnt really an issue.

We would most likely want to do a good steakhouse or a really good Italian place. Any suggestions?

Thank you very much, in advance.

    I will assume that you are staying downtown since you are going to game. The best steakhouse is The Prime Rib, which has more of a NYC dinner club vibe and requires jacket for dinner. It is a short cab ride from Inner Harbor. The downtown area has many steakhouses with all part of a national or smaller regional chain. My favorite of the bunch is Capitol Grill which is smack in the middle of Inner Harbor. Good food and probably a better atmosphere for a bunch of guys than the Prime Rib, which is more of a special occasion place.

      Prime Rib no longer requires jackets (sadly) although they are "recommended" on Saturday nights. Agree that it is the best though.

        Definitely go with The Prime Rib. Great old Baltimore feel with fantastic food and drinks.

          Piling on: Prime Rib. Especially coming from NOLA.

          I agree that Prime Rib has the best food, but I don't think it's the best choice. It would be a little stuffy for a group of guys who are coming to see a football game. It's a quiet, low-light, piano player type place. The clientele are generally the older / retired types and have probably been eating there and staring at the same decor since it opened. Not the type of place I would bring my football fan friends if they came to town.

          Other than that, it's just the chains which are pretty much indistinguishable. I haven't been to all of them, but I have had a couple of good experiences at Fleming's and that might be a more appropriate setting.

            The Prime Rib is great. Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Flemmings, Capital Grille all have downtown baltimore locations
