The Wearing (and Eating!) O' the Green in Baltimore

Carrie Murphy

Are you looking for a place to get your green on this Saturday, March 17th? Well, look no further. We here at Baltimore Eats have rounded up all the best places for eating, drinking, and celebrating St. Patrick's Day here in The Greatest City in America.

There is the always popular Belvedere Square haunt Ryan's Daughter, whose yearly St. Paddy's Day blowout is guaranteed fun. When we've attended in the past, the Guinness was flowing and everyone in attendance was enjoying themselves immensely, swaying to traditional Irish music. Ryan's Daughter serves up Irish fare all year long, so they're a good bet if you're hoping to celebrate with a traditional meal. They also have less traditional options; we highly recommend the Irish Spring Rolls as an appetizer. Get there early if you want a table, as we bet a lot of revelers will head to Ryan's Daughter.

We also recommend Irish pub, The Life of Reilly. In addition to their usual shepherd's pie and beef stew, chefs Henry Hanley and Dale Fields will offer Guinness-braised brisket, bangers n' mash, mushroom boxty, and of course, corned beef and cabbage. This off-the-beaten path Butcher's Hill bar is one of our favorites for spending an evening chatting with friends over a pint.

An Poitin Stil in Timonium is having a big celebration to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Their outdoor tent goes up on the 16th, and don't miss the 7 pm Irish toast in the evening, which is exactly when it will be St. Patrick's Day in Ireland, of course! The Stil, as it's commonly referred to, opens at 10 am on Saturday the 17th and will have live music all day beginning at noon, including a live broadcast from 100.7 The Bay. The party continues into Sunday, too, although the 18th is reserved for a more family-friendly celebration. The Stil is serving a limited menu throughout the weekend, but Jameson whiskey drinks are $5 and there are specials on Irish beer, as well.


If you want to get going even earlier, Slainte in Fells Point opens at 7 am and will be screening the Ireland vs. England Rugby finals at 10 am. Slainte will be offering their regular menu (psst! Order their hearty potato leek soup). Once you've seen the Irish win their rugby game, take the short walk over to Harbor East and head to James Joyce Irish Pub, which is having live musicians perform all day. Classic Irish fare is served, with open seating at lunch and dinner seatings at 5:30, 7:30 and 9:30. After you've eaten your fill, kick back with a Harp in their heated tent.

And if you're looking for something a little more low-key, Friendly Farm restaurant in Upperco has a full corned beef and cabbage dinner, complete with mint ice cream, for only $18.99.
