Since 1911, John Steven’s Tavern has proudly delivered good eats and a big warm welcome to local Baltimore-dwellers and visitors alike. Located in historic Fells Point, John Steven’s embraces the rich history of the neighborhood, evident in their motto: “Preserving the past, one pint at a time.” They mean it, too, with a heavy antiquarian bar and dark wood appointments throughout.
Though not much has changed by way of the atmosphere here, the menu is contemporary and classically Baltimore. You’ll find staples like mussels, broiled scallops and the ubiquitous jumbo lump crab cakes. Union Wharf residents looking to snag what John Steven’s calls the best seats in town, head over to the Tavern any day of the week — they’ll be happy to see you.
