Home Plates: Duda’s Tavern

Duda’s Tavern is the kind of neighborhood bar where everybody knows everybody, a place where regulars will usually find their favorite pint poured in front of them before they can get their coats off, and a place where strangers become friends over the course of an evening.

Located on the corner of Thames & South Bond Streets in Fells Point, Duda’s Tavern is not to be missed. More of a restaurant with a bar than a “bar with a deep fryer,” the menu features something for everyone. From burgers & wings to delicious fresh seafood, the menu is diverse & quite expansive considering it comes out of what might be the smallest commercial kitchen in the city.

Try their weekly specials like their legendary crab cakes (Tuesday) or the hand cut steak (Thursday)! Other go-to’s include a raw bar, the tequila shrimp, and (Yes!) even a Poke’ Bowl.

Family owned and operated for 70 years, the decor celebrates the rich maritime history of the neighborhood, the building, and the restaurant itself. While the business lunch crowd appreciates the fast service from the friendly staff, the casual atmosphere lends itself well to a relaxing dinner as well. Dog-friendly outside dining is also offered. After dinner, slide over to the bar for a Natty Boh, Gose, or IPA from the extensive draft & bottled beer selection.
