Federal Hill is best known for its bar scene, and there's no denying on a Friday or Saturday night that the streets are filled with young adults trying to get their 'drink on.' And it's not uncommon to see people waiting in line for around 20 minutes to get into one of the more popular bars, Stalking Horse. While I'm... More

Excellent food and excellent service. We were in Baltimore from Philadelphia for a follow-up appt at Johns Hopkins Hospital. After being restricted to certain locations following a double-lung transplant, my wife was given the ok to go out to eat. After cruising Federal Hil and reading many posted menus at front doors, Stalking Horse kept my wifes interest for a... More

During a recent visit to Baltimore we stopped into this bar a few times for one reason - to get a Red Bull Slushie. This to me is the only thing this bar has to offer differently than any other federal hill bar. The slushies are great for a summer afternoon.

We visited on two prior occasions before Ravens game and had a very good service and food experience. We visited before today's Ravens game for their wings which we enjoy more than other neighboring restaurants. Despite good service from bartender, bus boy, and door man we were very disappointed about the very slow food service. It took 40 minutes to... More

The place it is located right in the heart of Federal Hill, it is a good place to go dancing hip-hip or the latest pop hits. Drinks are not cheap but not over the top (beer is your best choice if you are in a budget) It has several floors, the 2nd one has a small patio and it is... More

I've met friends at the Stalking Horse a few times before Orioles games and always enjoyed the burgers, fried pickles and friendly pub atmosphere. Hadn't been there in a year when I went there today. I don't think I was asking a whole lot, but the tables were dirty (at 11:45 AM!), the place smelled bad, and the menus were... More

Had lite fare....veggie pizza and crabcake sandwich. Both were typical bar food...not too bad; but certainly not four stars. It was early in the evening; so the place was only about a third full. Bartender was friendly and made a good drink. Looked like it would be fun later on; but we had other places to go, so will try... More

After this pas weekend, I will never be returning here until they do something about their roided-out bouncers, who apparently love to throw and hit girls and truly nice guys instead of restraining and keeping the peace. Check your bouncers or you will lose your business and have a ton of battery and assault lawsuits on your hands. Completely unacceptable.... More

My wife and I used a Living Social coupon with a friend here early on a Wednesday evening. Part of the popular bar scene on Federal Hill's Cross Street, it has large windows that open directly onto the sidewalk making for an interesting and inviting space. We were disappointed to see that the only seating options were at the bar... More
