Before sports bars, the only place to view eight games simultaneously was inside the brain of a spider. Achieve octovision with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale pub grub and drinks at Don’t Know Tavern, a sports bar and grill in Federal Hill.
Founded in 2007 by bartender Jason Zink, Don’t Know Tavern prides itself on being a superb spot to watch the Patriots, Red Sox, WVU football, and post-collegiate bear hockey. As your favored hometown squadrons sport lightly on their fields of play, satisfy hunger with a menu selection such as the tomato bruschetta platter or the hummus platter ($8 each). Don’t Know Tavern's strapping sandwich selection includes the cheese steak—a stack of grilled, shaved fillet with onion, mushroom, roasted red pepper, and provolone ($11)—along with the broiled crab cake ($15) and Italian panini ($10), all available with fries or field greens. Think inside the bun with a Kobe ($12) or buffalo bison burger ($11), or go with an entree such as the bacon-friendly chicken alfredo ($13) or the creamy, crabby lobster ravioli ($16). Save room for sippable sustenance, as this deal is also good for beer, wine, and mixed drinks from the bar menu.
Don’t Know Tavern has hordes of televisions beaming beatifically at diners while they chow down, so you'll never miss a moment of the game. Although it oozes a sports-centric vibe, the spot's prominent bar, handsome décor, and downright delicious eats make it equal parts night-owl nook and family eatery. There's something for everyone, so bring a date or long-lost sibling. Call ahead to make a reservation.
- Don't Know Tavern in Federal Hill is aptly named. It doesn't seem to know if it's a neighborhood bar, a swanky lounge, a sports bar, or a restaurant. Trying to be all of these simultaneously gives the bar a disjointed identity, but does provide a little bit of something for everyone. – Ashley Sarantinos, Baltimore City Paper
