Looking for a jeans and t-shirt kind of place with good food that isn't super expensive.

    Ryleighs in Federal Hill. Good specials throughout the week (can't go wrong with $1 oysters at happy hour); it's consistently good food at bar prices.

      Where at in Baltimore? Highly recommend Hamilton Tavern on Harford Road.

      King's Kabob on 36th Street (The Avenue) in Hampden serves excellent freshly-baked pita, fantastic baba ganouj, and delicious kabos ( I like the chicken kabobs the best, but the lamb and kofta are also very good).

        Waterstone is a friendly, casual restaurant. The menu leans towards the Mediterranean side. The atmosphere is calming and welcoming. A wine -price friendly menu. Baby lambchops were grilled to the exquisite taste of "grilled>' They were accommpanied with jullienned vegetables and roasted fingerling potatoes.

        My husband's veal chop was quite delicious. Not the size and/or quality of the Prime Rib Restaurant, Fleming's Steakhouse or Da Mimmo's--but delicious and a third of the price.

        The Caesar salad was standard. On our first visit I ordered the beet salad which was exceptionally good. Lots of beets, blue cheese dressing and a tangy/somewhat spicey dressing. Worth ordering and not the average or typical offering of salad.

        Once again, I emphasize that this restaurant needs some love and attention. The atmosphere, service and food are quite worthwhile. I wouldn't categorize it with the top local restaurants. We found it to be one of our early weekday pleasures and save the high end frou frou places for the weekends. FoiGras
