Du Claw is a Maryland-based brewing company with four locations in the Baltimore area; the Fell’s Point outpost (in the building with “Bond Street Wharf” painted on the west side) is a big draw for its outdoor seating, which looks west toward the Domino Sugars sign and Federal Hill. Though there’s plenty of room to dine inside, it’s worth the wait to partake of the scenery.
Order up a table full of bar grub staples (like burgers and sandwiches) or entrées (like steaks and crab cakes), a few beers, and take in the sunset from the brick patio. You can get all the major beers here, but you’ll want to try the house creations—particularly the Misfit Red, an amber ale.
