The food choices were good and delicious. Although the goal was to kick it up a level I was looking forward to something’s more local like crab cakes. Unfortunately we were too full at the last stop to even consider eating half of what was plated and ending up taking it home. A cup of coffee and a pastry would have been enough to finish off the tour!

This was definitely well worth it - there were five stops, each with a generous portion of food that was delicious. We got to see many different areas of Fell's Point in Baltimore and even got to learn a little history. We had hoped for a bit more historical context, but the information we got was still enjoyable. The food stops were good. Our only complaint was the first stop - there were three different charcuterie plates that were passed between tables, so by the time platter number three got to a table, it was extremely picked over so some items were not available to sample. It may be better, if the restaurant permits it, to sit at on long family-style table and pass each platter at the same time. However, when there were a few items missing, our guide did a few extras so no one was left out. For the price, you can't get a bigger bang for your buck. Definitely a tasty and fun experience.
