We highly recommend these restaurants and things to do:


Phillips Seafood
Maryland is famous for its crabs, and Phillips Seafood is Baltimore's premiere restaurant for award-winning crab cakes! Beneath the lights of the massive 17-foot tall Phillips letters, now part of the iconic Baltimore skyline, you’ll find a casual, polished restaurant with a revitalized feel. We serve an extensive menu of classic seafood dishes along with lots of dining choices for non-seafood lovers.

Enjoy the music from the famous piano that has been rolled across the harbor. The open kitchen is a model of clean efficiency and provides a birds-eye view of the chefs in action. Come Taste the Tradition of Maryland and try our signature Maryland-style crab cakes, famous since 1914 at Phillips Seafood Baltimore! Click here to view the menu. 

B & O American Brasserie

B&O occupies the original Baltimore & Ohio Railway headquarters, a stunning structure that epitomizes the Beaux-Arts School of architecture. Inside, you'll find a bustling atmosphere of staff and patrons surrounding the lively exhibition kitchen, sharing laughs while enjoying robust American dishes that change with the seasons and feature local Baltimore ingredients. Equally popular are the charcuterie, artisan cheeses and brick-oven-fired pizzas, and at the bar, we're mixing handcrafted cocktails, topping off ales, pouring delectable wines while filling small plates with all manner of special creations. It's a spirited place, one that welcomes all aboard. Click here to view the menu.  A short cab ride from the Four Seasons.
