My friend and I headed down to Baltimore one lovely Summer weekend to watch the Yankees take on the Orioles. I’ve never been to the largest city in Maryland and was looking forward to it. We headed down after work and arrived fairly late. After a quick bite to eat, we decided to rest up for tomorrow’s game.
The following afternoon, we walked around the harbor for a bit before heading to Pratt Street Ale House for lunch.
The casual old brick taproom houses Oliver Breweries and serves British-style ales and pub fare. After a couple beers at the bar, we were seated at a table upstairs. We ordered a couple cocktails including a refreshing vodka drink and red sangria.
The menu features salads, flatbreads, quesadillas, sandwiches, and burgers.
When in Baltimore, you gotta have crabs! I decided to try one of their specials, a soft shell crab sandwich made with a local eastern shore soft shell crab pan fried in Old Bay batter and served on buttery Brioche roll with lettuce, tomato, and sriracha aioli and a side of housemade chips. The coating was crispy and the crab was a good size. It was a good sandwich.
The Chicken Chesapeake sandwich was pretty good too. It had lump crab meat folded with homemade imperial sauce that’s baked golden brown on placed on top a free range 8oz. chicken breast, served open faced on a toasted telera roll with a side of pub fries.
The Pratt Street Ale House is near the ballpark and serves as a solid choice for food and drinks before or after a game.
