About This Place

Other Details
In 1979 an entrepreneurial group of friends set out to create Baltimore’s best original restaurant. The Mt. Washington Tavern quickly became a comfortable neighborhood eatery – a common ground for debate and chatter after a long day and a perfect establishment for those special lunches, dinners and late night dining.Now in our 30th year, we are known for great homemade food, inventive chefs, bartenders who enjoy a heavy pour, and an atmosphere that makes patrons happy to be in Baltimore.Our establishment is unique to Baltimore: the prints, paintings, and engravings on our walls were carefully selected to honor our local heritage. Painted by Carol Offutt, the mural on the West wall of the Tavern depicts the old clubhouse that stood at Pimlico Race Course – before it was destroyed by fire in 1966. The chandeliers that hang over the bar date back to 1889; they originally adorned the lobby of the old Gayiety Theatre on East Baltimore St. Even our antique wooden telephone booth is a relic from a famous downtown drugstore. The etched windows between the Front and Raw Bars feature scenes particularly relevant to Baltimore’s rich history.

Its okay. I've been here 5 or 6 times since it was rebuilt and it feels like a Republican's take on Woodberry Kitchen. Except, without a chef. The beer is good, and I love having this place as...

Poor execution on part of staff. Had a holiday lunch for 16 people with all meals preordered. Food came out sporadically - more than 20 minutes between when the first people received their entree...

So we decided to try the Tavern for brunch after an incredibly fun Saturday night. One of my brunch requirements is the Bloody Mary. I have yet to find a Bloody Mary that tops Mamas on the Half...

Came back after 3 years, almost exactly, and my first impression was that this place looked absolutely gorgeous. The front bar is much, much nicer than before and the former garden room is now a...
