It still amazes me how uncomfortable people get around cameras. Especially people in food service- must be the food critic‘s fault.
After Jules and I were done wandering around Privateer Day in Fells Point, we decided to meet up with a friend that actually introduced us to each other. Richard was with his girlfriend Lauren and they were also meeting a couple for dinner so we decided on Heavy Seas Alehouse for dinner. Located in the same building as Mustang Alley’s, Heavy Seas Alehouse is a very recent opening. Hugh even mentioned something about it when Jules and I took our tour way back when of Heavy Seas Brewery.
Naturally, Jules and I wanted to try the food here before we move across the country. After a sizable wait, which was made better by trying a new Heavy Seas Brew, we got a booth in the main room.
Without a doubt, the decor is very “Baltimore“. Exposed brick abounds, and dark wood accents highlights the brick’s texture. Plus, Heavy Seas is a Baltimore beer- so it’s a great representation of the charm and heritage of Baltimore.
The menu was very local, both in types of dishes and sourcing of the ingredients. While the prices were a little more than I anticipated, the quality of food made it more than worth the price.
The food was amazingly delicious! If I could move in there and eat their food all the time, I totally would. It was that good! Even the dessert was a wonderful treat.
As a going away treat, they serve cookies made with spent grain from the beer making process. Beer cookies! I’m going let that sink it for a bit… (They did not taste like beer- Oatmeal if I remember correctly). I applaud them for sourcing locally as possible and reusing products of the beer making process. I highly recommend you take a visit to Heavy Seas Alehouse– you won’t be disappointed!
