Classis and simple. Server Mark was very nice and always checked on us. Had the Guiness Mussels special. Loved the sauce but too many closed mussels. The sauteed spinach was too salty for me. However, I would recommend tjis place as they have an exciting not too over the top menu. Will try to return and try the coconut spicy... More

I was there here for dinner with a group of 8; service was slow but friendly; they were out of their most popular beer and also some of the plates on the menu !? I went for mussel but was disappointed by the fact that very little "sauce" was included in the plate (same for the other colleagues who also... More

Unbelievable crab cakes...I ate myself into a stupor. Rich and filled with lump crab. I went on a quiet night but the service was fast and personable. Rustic sea decor. My waitress left me with two bumper stickers--cute!

Had the pleasure of finding Bertha's this weekend and totally enjoyed the dinner. We shared the mussels with assorted sauces and I wish I had my own order. All the sauces are tasty, I liked the mustard blend and basil and spinach varieties best. For dinner my husband had a special that night, cod stuffed with seafood Newburgh, it was... More

My wife and I stopped for a Thursday afternoon beverage and came back for Friday evening for some live blues and rhythm and blues. Crab cakes and jalapeño mac and cheese were very good. Good local beer.

I was referred to come here by a friend whole down looking at colleges. The waitress must have been new. I asked about mussel recommendations and she had to ask someone. I am use to having mussels in a broth with seasoning and when I got them the seasoning I requested was on the side in a small cup. One... More

Ate here over the weekend and usually every time I'm in town. I love mussels and they have the best. A little pricey for such a cheap seafood. But they do have them prepared differently (with different flavors). Small bar but gets a lot of people. If you like mussels you need to try it.

this is a great little place. I saw little because we only went to the bar but I think it has a pretty big dinning room. The staff is cool. They were friendly and funny. If you go, make sure you do get the mussels...they were delicious.

We came to Baltimore for a wedding and walked over to Fells Point for lunch and enjoyed our beer choices and lunch specials at Berthas. Crab cake sandwich was solid and the turkey Rachel was perfect for a rainy day. Nice and warm.
