From the perspective of a West Coast visitor, it's the best beer bar in town. Located right in the heart of Fell's Point, it's a large rustic beer hall with lots of great beer memorabilia. They had a fairly long bar with a well diversified inventory of taps, featuring several regional beers. The beer list just went on and on. It's impressive what they keep on hand in their huge refrigerator. Beers from everywhere, and some very good Belgians too. We didn't eat there, but in retrospect, maybe we should have. Crabby Dick's across the street was a complete disaster. I can't believe we left such great service and beer at Max's on Broadway only to walk across the street for a crab dinner and service nightmare.

We enjoyed the humor of the bartender. She was not only friendly and efficient, she was fun and loved to joke around. One of their t-shirts read, "You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning." This is a place you could spend many hours enjoying the good beer and service. The patrons were all very friendly.

Great atmosphere to have a drink and watch a game. Plenty of space which is rare for pub in Fells Point. You feel a real sense of community and belonging.

The exceptional level of beer served up cannot be denied, will not be denied. The service on the other hand does range from on point to conjuring up the scene from the Seinfeld episode "Soup Nazi". Depending on the bartender/server, just know what you want and ask no questions. Sure, you could blame this on how ridiculously busy they can get, seeing as they are in the heart of Fell's Point and are pouring the best beers town. The reality is however, after numerous visits with different groups, we still have had questionable service at times and it just is what it is. Would I go back? You betcha.

Amazing selection of beers, best place in MD imo. If possible be sure to attend the legendary Belgian beer weekend in February, one of the greatest events in the DMV area. Constantly changing beer list, never know what you may find.
