A BALTIMORE OYSTER HOUSE

DINING CASUAL AND EATING FINE

Whatever the celebration, whatever the mood, Mama’s does not disappoint

OUR STORY

In 2003, we opened Mama’s on the Half Shell. Our opening day was the realization of five years of dreaming, discussing and collecting. As native “Baltimoreans,” we felt Baltimore lacked a real seafood restaurant. Because of our love for the restaurant business…

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

I love this place! Whether it’s for lunch dinner or happy hour. I wish I could make brunch more often! Mamas is right down the street from my office and a favorite place to frequent. Always met by the bar staff with a cold drink and awesome crushes. Matt always takes great care of making sure I always have a great experience.

WOOOOOOOOOW. I’m in love. 
Love how this place is late night also! I stopped by on my first night in Baltimore.

–Julie T

Probably the best meal we’ve had in awhile. We had Salmon special and the sauce was an absolute masterpiece. Dark woodwork adds to the old Baltimore charm. The place is truly a Baltimorean must.

Best selection of fresh oysters plus a wide variety of high quality items on the menu. My go to is the open faced tenderloin sandwich. The ultimate Saturday morning cure-all. Definitely one of the higher end spots on the square. Great date spot – the perfect blend of fine dining and gastro pub. Plenty of outdoor seating as well.

-Daniel Dotter

One of my favorite places. Large selection on the raw bar and some of the best cream of crab soup I’ve ever had. Bartenders are great.

Mama’s on the Half Shell was truly an experience. Seeing that I am not someone from the east coast states where fresh seafood is available at all times, this restaurant was truly a treat. The architecture of the building inside and out was gorgeous, but this two story hot spot had a lot more to offer. To finish it all off, Bread Pudding featuring a Kentucky Bourbon sauce. From the friendly staff to the amazing food, nothing could have been better about tonight’s meal.
