The restaurant offers a crabcake as their signature dish, but at 38 dollars, I passed on that opportunity. I don't know whether it's local crab. I do know that the restaurant sells a lot of non-local crab.
My wife had their catfish, which had a slightly off flavor and was overcooked.
The wine list is short and fairly ordinary, but not unusually expensive. The food was more expensive than it should be, especially given the quality. 20 bucks for the catfish, 22 for the rockfish. A glass of house wine is 8 bucks.
Service was OK, although the waiter was unable to answer even basic questions about the menu items. In one move that I found annoying, the restaurant adds a 15% gratuity automatically. I can understand this for large parties, but for a table of two? I voiced my annoyance to the manager, but got little response.
If you're really looking for seafood, there are certainly better choices in Baltimore. Next week when I'm back I'll look a little harder for something better.

My mom used to like to go to Mo's Fisherman's Exchange on Joppa Road in Parkville. The prices are probably better than the ones downtown and the portions are always generous. Honestly, I've never had a bad meal there.
My MIL loved Mo's Fisherman's Exchange, and took us there for lunch frequently when we visted her. I thought the food was fine, but now that I follow a strict gluten-free diet I don't think there's much there that is safe for me to eat. My MIL made the best crabcakes on the planet, but I thought Mo's compared favorably when she wasn't able to make hers.
