A casually upscale restaurant isn't just the perfect place to practice close-up magic on unsuspecting patrons; it's also a great spot to meet friends and share Burton Gilliam gossip. Fuel up on conversations and cuisine with today's Groupon, offering $30 worth of salads, sandwiches, starters, and drinks for $15 at The Row House Grille.
The recently renovated space boasts glossy cherry-wood floors, a new oak bar, and an upstairs lounge complete with hearth and high ceiling. Gastrominds Patrick Dahlgren and Joseph Flynn opened the eatery intending to create a place one step up from the basic corner bar. The minimal menu favors quality versus quantity, serving up a skull-splitting selection of starters, salads, and sandwiches. Tongue-puckering Granny Smith gazpacho crested with chive sour cream and crusty bread for dipping ($7), crispy bruschetta ($7.50), and smoked salmon studded with capers ($11) round out the appetizer options. Salads include a kicky tequila-lime Caesar ($8) and petite mixed greens ($4). Side suds with a heartier helping like the barbecue Buffalo-chicken panini ($11) or chicken salad with red grapes on a panini ($9). The seasonal menu is subject to change but will always feature standard bar grub.
Late hours (until 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday) encourage strays to stick around to take advantage of nightly food and drink specials. Brew enthusiasts will be pleased to discover a teeming selection of Clipper City beers. Post up at the first floor for a more-casual ambience (HDTV and bar), or stroll upstairs and casually dine in the glow of a gas fireplace.
- I stopped by the new Rowhouse Grille...for a couple beers, and was pleasantly surprised at how great it looks...I had no complaints with the service at the Rowhouse. The bar area was comfortably full, but I never had a problem getting a drink. I also liked the tunes, which weren't your average pub fare. Instead of Journey and such, we got A Tribe Called Quest. – Sam Sessa, Baltimore Sun
- Federal Hill loves its converted rowhouse bars, and recently gained another— called, not coincidentally— The Rowhouse Grille. The new owners gave the space a thorough renovation, and the result features blue-gray walls, glowing cherry floors and a polished oak bar and woodwork...the upstairs holds another larger dining room, along with a smaller bar area complete with roaring fireplace and windows overlooking the street. Craft beer fans will delight in eight flowing taps (three of those dispensing Clipper City ales). – Baltimore Style

- Inside, the place looks amazing, and the food and service are just as good. The food is phenomenal!!! They also have a great selection of beers (they have local beer Clipper City on tap, which is always good). – nick-rouhana
The RowHouse Grille
Nestled on a street corner in the Federal Hill neighborhood, The RowHouse Grille beckons to passersby with homey feasts of freshly caught seafood, crispy fried chicken, and burgers. A misty, old-timey charm pervades the welcoming tavern, with wooden rafter beams overhead, dark varnished hardwood floors underfoot, and a silent 'e' defiantly hanging off the end of the word "Grill." Friendly tenders at two different bars pour out frosty glasses of beer from 16 taps, perfect for pairing with a plate of P.E.I. mussels or New England lobster rolls. Servers bear gifts of jerk chicken, gator po' boys, and English pea risotto, or cart out five-course sampler feasts of smoked cheese, seared scallops, bacon-wrapped steaks, and pear tartes.
