Baltimore hasn’t been dubbed Charm City for nothing. With an exciting nightlife, expanding businesses and technology advances, there’s a lot to living here. Another solid benefit to living in the city? The access you have to all the amazing Baltimore restaurants!
Whatever you have a taste for, there’s a restaurant in town that can satisfy it. Craving a nice, juicy burger? We’ve got it. Want something light and easy to digest? We’ve got it. Want to take your beau out for fancy Italian dinner? Come on, you already know we’ve got it.
And best of all, these great restaurants also come with some equally great views. The weather’s nice, so get out there and take advantage of your city.
Here are a few of best outdoor restaurants in Baltimore:
Nick’s Fish House – 2600 Insulator Drive
Nick’s Fish House comes with great views of the water and even greater crabs. Seriously, they say they have the “best steamed crabs in town.” Crabs not your thing? Go for the shrimp and grits that are topped with spinach, sausage, tomatoes and scallions. If you’re feeling up to it, splurge on a Maine lobster steam pot, which comes with a hefty portion of lobster, corn on the cob and red potatoes.
Cosima – 3000 Falls Road, Mill No. 1
Cosima is perfect for date night or special occasions. With their outdoor seating, you’re exposed to red brick walls, warm string lights and views of the water. They serve authentic Southern Italian dishes and have something for every eater. Let them surprise you with their “special pizza of the day” or try the canneloni al fungi, which is pasta with ricotta, goat cheese, cremini mushrooms and truffled arugula.
Bond Street Social – 901 South Bond Street
Bond Street Social has a young, fresh aesthetic, and it’s great for bigger groups that don’t mind sharing. Need somewhere to meet up with friends and catch up? This is the place. Need somewhere nice to have drinks after work? This is the place. Their Happy Hour menu features shareable plates like a mushroom flatbread, cast iron nachos and $4 beers. They also offer $5 wines and $5 premium well drinks. Oh, and the views of the Inner Harbor don’t disappoint either.
Barcocina – 1629 Thames Street
Barcocina is a great because it checks off so many boxes. It’s casual and inviting, it offers relaxing views of the Harbor, and chef Marc Dixon works to bring a taste of Mexico right to Baltimore. Go for brunch on the weekend, and try dishes like huevos rancheros, spiced pork hash or ancho cinnamon French toast. They also have drink specials like bottomless bloody marias and bottomless mimosas.
Enjoy your meals, Baltimore, and while you’re at it, enjoy those sights!
