    Located in the Belvedere hotel, this spot is bursting with a convivial atmosphere, good beer list and solid food. Gets pretty busy but for good reason. A great spot in Mount Vernon.

    The Owl Bar is one of those local go to spots. It's only 10 minutes away from the Inner Harbor and The Charm'tastic Mile.

    Baltimore's Best Bars 2013: " The bar located on the Belvedere Hotel’s first floor retains a sense of history that’s easy to feel but difficult to accurately describe." http://bsun.md/1jEnkNx

    A fave old Bmore haunt and a great date night ambience. Best food is the steak and frites or the amazing pizzas

    Twenty beers on tap and delicious food. Be aware: Owl Bar will not split a check between more than three credit cards.

    Great, historic place. It was a surprise find, but an awesome one. Good beer selection, but atmosphere rocks.

    Now under new ownership the place is seeing a real revival in its level of service and food quality. Check out the awesome paninis and don't forget to get ice cream after dinner.

    Any of the pizzas can be made into its own thin crust version which is amazing. Also not on the menu, "Red Pizza" : pepperoni, sausage, and I believe beef.

    Be sure to have a sidecar and an Ahi Tuna BLT! You won't be disappointed.

    Try the yard of beer. Make sure not to break the glass it comes in though, unless you want an additional $125 added to your check.

    New management or not... I still refer to this place as the "Out Bar" as they run out of practically everything. Always have a back up in mind... You'll need it!

    One pizza is enough for two to share, and the blue collar chili is rather large and filling.

    Good spot for a draft beer. Food is all right, but portion sizes seem a little small.

    Walk through the lobby of the Belvedere, try to shake the feeling that you are in the Shining, the bar is at the back

    Avoid on Friday night: service drags. Bartenders seem more interested in clustering by the service window & chatting with other staff or watching the Os game. Didn't even ask if I wanted a 2nd drink.

    Classic stop for out-of-town guests. Have them guess the third line of the owl riddle that's on the front wall.

    They still are incapable of supplying everything they list on the menu - Long Live "The OUT Bar!"

    Don't come for brunch. Heavy metal music. Sour bartender. And they're out of waffles.

    This place settles the big question once and for all: the spirit of Vienna is alive in Baltimore proper.
