    Great pizza! Had one night in Baltimore and I'm glad I came here. Good beers on tap as well.

    Great, historic place. It was a surprise find, but an awesome one. Good beer selection, but atmosphere rocks.

    Be sure to have a sidecar and an Ahi Tuna BLT! You won't be disappointed.

    Twenty beers on tap and delicious food. Be aware: Owl Bar will not split a check between more than three credit cards.

    Gross food. Love the atmosphere, but gross, gross food. Cool bar to have a couple of drinks. That's about it.

    Try the Bloody Mary Bar - Really cool concept and spicy options are good

    Baltimore's Best Bars 2013: " The bar located on the Belvedere Hotel’s first floor retains a sense of history that’s easy to feel but difficult to accurately describe."

    The Baltimore Sun · December 9, 2013
  • Janet H.

    Friendly staff, nice to tourist

    Janet Height · November 3, 2013

    Don't look for it by the address's located inside the Belvedere hotel , try the Sweet baby Jesus on's amazing !

    Shmupi Koto · September 13, 2013

    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.

    Caitlin McAteer · June 15, 2013
  • Greg J.

    Hang at the bar, one of the longest in town.

    Greg Jarmiolowski · June 11, 2013
  • William C.

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

    William Candrick · June 1, 2013
  • Rebecca S.

    Always rude staff. Really.

    Rebecca Shillenn · May 19, 2013

    Its a great bar, but service is a little slow!!!

    Happy Valentine's day

    Get a yard beer, 4 beers for the price of 3. Food is sub par however.

    Baltimore's Best Bars 2012: "We love the pizza and affordable happy hour prices, but this is a place to savor the rich history and atmosphere."

    The portobello fries are incredible. Order extra sauce.

    Eric Schell · December 7, 2012
  • Carolyn J.

    Ask for Jess and Rachael - they are the best and the cutest!

    Carolyn J. · August 12, 2012
  • Brian M.

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

    Brian Mitchell · July 8, 2012
  • Sean C.

    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.

    Sean Connors · July 6, 2012
  • Rene K.

    Could be a good place except for that tall meat head type bartender--- see below tip

    Rene Kessler · June 13, 2012
  • Steven M.

    Loved everything about it! A must see, but don't try the wings

    Steven Miller · May 25, 2012
  • Steve S.

    They need to get whole wheat dough for the pizza.

    Steve Speicher · May 13, 2012
  • Steve S.

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

    Steve Speicher · May 13, 2012
  • Ann Marie B.

    Awesome history, great vibe, good food & drink (when they're all stocked up).

    Ann Marie B · March 16, 2012
  • Ali K.

    Get the Greek pizza. You won't be disappointed.

    Count the owls! See if you can find them all.

    Great draft selection! Local and original brews.

    Steve Speicher · December 9, 2011
  • Greg P.

    I know you're thinking, "This place looks good". It's not. Just turn around and leave.

    Greg Pollack · December 3, 2011
  • Cracken ..

    Great historic bar with a terrific "Prohibition" back story.

    Cracken . · November 30, 2011
  • Danielle D.

    Worst service ever. After an hour, we had to go find a waiter to order food.

    Danielle Disney · November 6, 2011
  • Mary H. N.

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

    Mary H. Nahorniak · September 30, 2011
  • Amit M.

    Asked if they have Strongbow - bartender asked what that was.

    Amit Mistry · September 4, 2011
  • Mike M.

    They still are incapable of supplying everything they list on the menu - Long Live "The OUT Bar!"

    Mike McCarthy · September 1, 2011
  • Rene K.

    Bartender kicked me out!

    Rene Kessler · August 15, 2011
  • Robert K.

    Whine to the bartenders about paying $14 for 12 oz of top shelf bourbon! If you can't afford it you shouldn't shouldn't ask for it! Don't be cheap Foursquare nation!

    Robert Kudirka · March 10, 2011
  • Gary S.

    Get a Maker's Mark Manhattan ... it will be half vermouth and cost you $14!

    Gary Smith · February 12, 2011
  • Amar W.

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