    Don't come for brunch. Heavy metal music. Sour bartender. And they're out of waffles.

    Good spot for a draft beer. Food is all right, but portion sizes seem a little small.

    A fave old Bmore haunt and a great date night ambience. Best food is the steak and frites or the amazing pizzas

    Avoid on Friday night: service drags. Bartenders seem more interested in clustering by the service window & chatting with other staff or watching the Os game. Didn't even ask if I wanted a 2nd drink.

    I love the sophisticated, quirky atmosphere and greasy spoon menu. The Belvedere's top floor restaurant, not so much; it attracts the club crowd.

    Walk through the lobby of the Belvedere, try to shake the feeling that you are in the Shining, the bar is at the back

    Try the yard of beer. Make sure not to break the glass it comes in though, unless you want an additional $125 added to your check.

    One pizza is enough for two to share, and the blue collar chili is rather large and filling.

    Classic stop for out-of-town guests. Have them guess the third line of the owl riddle that's on the front wall.

    This place settles the big question once and for all: the spirit of Vienna is alive in Baltimore proper.

    Any of the pizzas can be made into its own thin crust version which is amazing. Also not on the menu, "Red Pizza" : pepperoni, sausage, and I believe beef.

    New management or not... I still refer to this place as the "Out Bar" as they run out of practically everything. Always have a back up in mind... You'll need it!

    Order yourself a Knob Creek Manhattan or two and make sure to bring lube for when they bend you over to give you the bill.

    Now under new ownership the place is seeing a real revival in its level of service and food quality. Check out the awesome paninis and don't forget to get ice cream after dinner.
