Trying to find a place to get a good meal in Baltimore included a short visit to the B & O. The menu we were given had extremely limited options, and the waitress was rude.

Daniel R I would like to think that you arrived at the B&O either between lunch and dinner or after dinner hours. We do offer a full breakfast, lunch, dinner as well as a weekend brunch menu. I do appreciate your feedback.

We offer limited menus in between lunch and dinner service in order to properly prepare for dinner service. Rather than close the kitchen we offer a limited menu. I appreciate you visiting, and I hope to see you again soon.

When you inherit a space as magical as the historic former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters, you've got to do it justice. We kept our building's most stunning architectural features intact while updating the space with contemporary design elements and nostalgic touches, like chairs and table lamps from original B&O dining cars. Our practices are distinctly 21st century, though, from selecting the best local produce at the farmer's market to serving cutting-edge craft cocktails to maintaining a steadfast commitment to sustainable business practices. If only train passengers from the early 1900s had it so good!
