"Food was mediocre. Serice was poor. Reservation for 6:30 - Pre-theatre. Place was jammed. Appetizers came with Entrees at 7:30. Had to dine and dash to make curtain."

"We made our reservation for 90 minutes prior to the Hippodrome curtain. We arrived on time. Waited 10 minutes to be seated and waited 60 minutes for our food to arrive. We had to wolf it down and rush to the theater. How was the food? We don't know dice we didn't really have time to enjoy it."

"We waited almost 45 minutes for our dinner.
Never were asked if we wanted another beer. I had fish tacos but had a hard time finding the fish! A lot of slaw! Not much fish! Another diner got the salad and never did find the candied cashews! Will not go back!

"We had heard about Alewife from Diners, Drive Inns and Dives with Guy Fiery. Despite Guy Fiery's obnoxious demeanor on that show, it did not deter us from trying this place out. I must say, this place was neither a diner, drive inn nor a dive. It was quite quaint. The decoration was lovely inside especially pulling from its historical foundation of being a bank. It had a little eerie feeling with it being dimly lit and still having old artifacts and remnants of the past. The food was delicious. Unfortunately they were out of the quail which i seriously wanted to try but the flank steak was nicely done. they have a good libations selection and the service was great. We went for a late dinner on Saturday and it was kinda quiet. I suppose it would be busy if there was a show at the Hippodrome that night. I was a little nervous since the neighbourhood north of the place was a little dodgy but overall it was a good experience."

"As you can see by the title, we were disappointed in our experience at Alewife. First we found that the menu was very limited. Next, when one of asked for a burger, the waitress did not ask how she would like it cooked so the customer asked for it to be cooked medium rare. The waitress said that the chef does not cook it to temperature. After some discussion, the waitress went back to the chef and when she came back, the waitress said that a burger that was not on the menu could be cooked to temperature. Well, the burger came out well done. Then this same customer asked for dijon mustard. When the waitress FINALLY came back to check up on the food, this customer had already eaten most of the burger. And by the time she finally got the mustard, she had eaten most of the burger. The restaurant was not crowded so there was no reason for the waitress to have taken so long in checking back with us. Also, one of us ordered a martini and that customer found it to be watered down. Overall, our experience was not favorable. Therefore we will not be returning to this restaurant."

"My husband and I ate here before attending a comedy show at the Hippodrome. It was closer to our style than other more formal places nearby. With 40 beers on draft and quirky comfort food, it matched our tastes well. We sat in the room next to the bar with the fireplace. You can feel the history, especially with the soaring ceilings and a small safe door on one of the walls. Service was really good given the server had the whole room, which we understand. My husband tried the daily eggroll special, which was meatballs and marinara. Good thing we didn't plan to split it because there were only 2 small rolls...for $9. He did enjoy them, though. Our entrees came out with good timing. I ordered the mac n cheese with bacon; it was filling and delicious. It had a very mild kick which enhanced the flavor. He ordered the wild boar sliders, which he never tried before. They were cooked spot on (juicy and tender), and the accompanying slaw was flavorful and added a welcomed crunch. We were full and happy. He ordered two draft beers throughout our meal and enjoyed them both. It got much louder towards the end of our meal due to no soft surfaces to absorb the sound. We would recommend this to anyone who wants a quirky place with out-of-the-box offerings and a wide variety of craft beers available."

"We were in Baltimore for the Kevin James show! So the vibe was loud and festive! The yard bird burger was my husband's favorite and I had the pork belly Mac n cheese fries which were awesome! House cola was fun since we are non drinkers! So convenient to the Hippodrome! We will be back next show!"

"My husband and I have come to Alewife many, many times. Lately it's been our go to for dinner after Orioles games or before a Hippodrome event. Our favorite meal was the smoke burger. We had been getting it for years. Sadly when we went this time they had JUST changed the menu and removed the smoke burger due to time constraints. We usually overlook the service which is lacking, not particularly for any servers fault. They seem to generally have a lot of customers and 1 server for the downstairs. I don't know how many more times we would consider going to Alewife at this point."

"An extensive list of craft beers and adequate bar food. Our waiter was not attentive and waited 30 minutes after ordering a beer to receive it."

"This was my second stop at Alewife and the food was great. We had the Mac and Cheese with Bacon, a salad and the Smoked Cheeseburger, plus an order of Nachos. Food was great and the beers were delicious. I recommend going here after a show if you want a late dinner that offers some flavorful options!"

"Busy pre-theater spot with an extensive beer list, a few craft cocktails, and a thoughtful menu of unique items utilizing some lesser known proteins. Really delicious. Just wishing they put as much thought into their dessert offerings."

"Alewife provides comfort food of good quality, with just enough of a differentiating wrinkle to make if attractive and desirable. Noise level is a little high, service is "catch as catch can," but very friendly. Portions are large; prices reasonable."
