Blogger Reviews of Alewife

  • Charm City Couple on Aug 01, 2013

    I strongly dislike restaurants that use fancy ingredients to charge higher prices for mediocre food. I came to Alewife on a weeknight expecting to be wowed. Boy was I wrong...

  • Baltimore Bistros & Beer on Jul 29, 2013

    We were there to eat and after looking over the menu the call for red meat overcame both of us and we decided on the Smoked Burger. My great hamburger gauge is controlled by Hamilton Tavern's burger. Happily, I can report that Alewife has a burger that gives Hamilton all they want as far as burger battles are concerned. For my money, they don't quite edge them out, but they put up one hell of a fight. This is definitely one of the top burgers in Baltimore.

  • Capital R rGood variety of beer on tap. Shrimp tacos where great, but not the fish tacos so much. They forget some of the ingredients when they made the fish tacos, but they did take a few bucks off.

  • Lisa HinchliffeDisappointing. All of the menu items people brag on are no more.

  • Gregory S.Love the craft beer selection. $15 will get you four 5oz pours. The feral pig pork sliders were really tasty!

    55555 by Gregory S.

  • Noah M.It sounds like stoner food, but the pork belly Mac & cheese fries were insanely good. Mac and cheese, collards and some old bay fries with a hint of rosemary.

    55555 by Noah M.
