Yes this is a local haunt, but I think it is way over rated. The food is satisfactory, prices high, atmosphere is alright. The waitstaff are usually overtired and not always on thier toes. The bar scene if you are into that is the only thing I see that this establishment has going for it. Sorry I can not give it two thumbs up!

Another Baltimore institution. A great place to meet friends for lunch---or dinner. The waiters have been there forever and do a great job. And after lunch you can stroll the streets and shop. Getting a parking place is the trick.

We made Mother's Day reservations for early afternoon, and arrived early. We were seated slightly before the appointed time, and everything went down hill from there. We ordered drinks and appetizers; drinks were fine, appetizer order went 2 correct out of three. There was a very limited selection of crackers; no bread, no rolls, however they did offer us some "Danish". We placed the main order, and my wife requested a side dish of vegetables. She was told they were not available - - even though the vegetables were on the menu with another entree. After some negotiations, the waitress finally included the vegetables.

After 25 minutes, the main course still had not arrived. I asked the waitress the cause of the delay and her response was that I ordered my steak "well done".

After 45 minutes, the main course still had not arrived. I again asked the waitress what's taking so long. Her response was that our order was competing with other orders in the restaurant.

After an hour and ten minutes, we advised another the waitress to cancel our order, give us our check, and we would go elsewhere to eat. She stated she would find out waitress and advise her. We were in the process of leaving when our waitress arrived with "cold steaks, tepid french fries, and a decent crab cake". As a member of our party was a diabetic, we finished the FIRST AND LAST MEAL EVER at Mt. Washington Tavern.

Overall, the food was poor, the service very poor, and the rude treatment was in abundance.

I have heard a lot about this place and went and met a friend for brunch on Mother's Day. I loved the look of the place and the atmosphere- mainly the main dining room where the roof opens up. However I wasn't very impressed with the food.

I got the Eggs Norfolk- Poached eggs with Smithfield ham and jumbo lumpcrab on an English muffin, topped with hollandias. The eggs could have been cooked more, the crab was very cold and the english muffin wasn't very good.

I am not sure if the the food wasn't its best because of the holiday and busyness. I guess I need to head back on a normal night and try it out.

We had a party of twelve and the staff did well accommodating us. There truly is great ambiance in the dinning room. However, we went there on a sat. night at about 7:00pm. We came in the front door and had to come through "The Tavern" section to get to the main dinning room. This caused a lot of gawking on the part of the locals who were hanging out at the bar. No big deal we knew it was a tavern. However, in order to go to the bathroom you had to go back through the tavern area through a couple different closed doors. This led to more gawking especially towards the ladies who were uncomfortable with making this trip on their own and for good reason, the bar crowd was quite sketchy. So, great ambiance in the dinning area but the entrance and the bathroom were in the Mt. Washington hood. Aside from the awkward layout the place was nice for a large group. Not quite as good as advertised. The award winning seafood crab soup tasted like they used Campbell's Vegetable beef soup as a base. Big disappointment. In fact the majority of our party thought Campbell?s soup is better. They did have good steak and killer salad entrees.

Pros: located near light rail stop

Cons: It's a tavern!! Drunken gawkers

The Mt Washington Tavern is THE place to be seen. They have the best happy hour specials, always offer good free food for grazing, mostly steamed shrimp!! The prices are good. If in the mood for dinner, they have a large dining room with ceilings. Try the soups.. I have never tried one that I do not like, especially the cream of crab when they have that!

The ambience of the main dining room is GREAT especially on a nice day when they open the up roof. Burgers are the best thing on the menu here, most everything else is less than average. Waitstaff is cordial and they try their best, but the place seems understaffed. The booths also seem a little "crumby" and sticky.
