    This is a 'must' if in the Baltimore area, if you want to experience the best seafood in the city, Crab Cakes, Mac $ Cheese, Lobster Roll, Orange Crush's, Bloody Mary's, and Seafood Chowder Soup!

    Fried oyster platter is excellent. Make sure to use the unnamed hot sauce in the glass bottle… Mama's is the best seafood spot in Canton, and probably Baltimore.

    1) Don't tell the bartenders someone 'sent you'. That's ridiculous. 2) try a half grapefruit half orange crush. Amazing!! 3) blackened tuna sandwich *drools* 4) Tenderloin sandwich- wowza. 5) enjoy!!

    The salmon club with apple-wood smoked bacon is my go to here. Try an oyster shooter if you're feeling adventurous, an orange crush if you just want to drink something yummy.

    Friday night looks like a "scene" at the bar downstairs. But if you choose to stay for dinner you will be gob smacked with the quality. Best crab cakes I've ever had!

    Appetizers are huge! Beer mussels are the bomb. They have really strict rules about pulling up chairs though so it's hard to have people join your party.

    Sunday brunch is key - beer mussels, ceasar salad, grilled oysters, GM french toast, needful breakfast...all good bets. Top it all off with Blue on Blues :)
