If you’re looking for pub food in Baltimore, pub food is what you’ll find at The Wharf Rat. This 28-year-old establishment serves dishes that pair perfectly with ice cold draft beers to longtime regulars and newcomers alike.
For beer lovers, be sure to try the signature beer tasting option and select three different half-pints for $8. It’s a daily deal until 7 p.m., but it runs all-day on Thursdays. Want some greasy goodness? Opt for the English beer-battered fish and chips or the house crab dip to go along with your brew. Hand-pulled, cask conditioned ales are what The Wharf Rat is best known for, while salty oatmeal stouts with hints of chocolate and licorice make up the unique Oliver Bishop’s Breakfast. Heavy Seas Loose Cannon even swirls floral, spicy and citrusy aromas with three different hops for a uniquely different twist.
Like many bars, the weekends can get a little loud once the jukebox gets pumped full of quarters and the pool table is surrounded by players. During the week, however, the atmosphere at The Wharf Rat is much more laid-back.
