Coach loves to find great eats. Being born and raised around Baltimore aka “Charm City” I know all the local spots. Applebees, Outback, Red Robin are not bad spots but do not give our families a true flavor of the city or region. My recommendations will always be local haunts that have been tried and tested many times.
Sandwich Place on the Go-
Wine Merchant, 10741 Falls Rd, Lutherville, MD
Best sandwich spot in Baltimore. Close to Towson but also closed on Sundays. Go with the Ragin Cagin, The Bomber.
WAWA Multiple locations. Don’t be fooled by the gas pumps. WAWA is a great deli with a wide mix of subs, soups, breakfast items. Great spot for a quick gas stop for rental car and sub in between games or heading to airport.
Anyone coming into B’More needs to experience a crab cake. Depending on where the tournament is and where we are staying for the weekend, there are many options listed below:
G/M Lounge, 804 N Hammonds Ferry Road, Linthicum Heights, Maryland 21090
Legendary spot near the BWI airport. Easy ride to Annapolis or Towson. Big crab cakes and local B’more culture. Double down on crab and get the crab cake platter with a bowl of Maryland crab soup.
Box Hill Pizzeria, 2915 Emmortan Rd, Abingdon, MD 21009
Close to the Cedar Lane, Carsons Run Complex outside Bel Air. Great spot, super busy so carryout is the play here.
Corner Stable, 9942 York Rd, Cockeysville, MD
Close to Towson. Small hole in wall spot with great crabcakes and ribs. Go with half a rack and crab cake. Gurr still says its the best place in Baltimore.
Good people watching spot after a long day on the fields
MaGerks, Steelfish Grill, Bel Air, MD
Bel Air stalwarts. Both spots have a nice patio scene with tv’s, cold refreshments and live music. Both haunts are in Coach P’s neighborhood so be careful throwing my name around. It’s hit or miss on the reaction from the locals.
Valley Inn- 1501 Falls Rd, Lutherville, MD
The patio is the place to be seen within the lacrosse community. Go back and shower first. Bring your “A” game. Recommended more for the ITP folks. Alot of popped collars, Vineyard Vines and Peter Millar. Just tell any local you either know Hilgy, Shrives or Jenny. It’s your ticket to the cool club.
Green Turtle- Towson, MD
Great roof top deck owned by my man, Billy Packo. John Z is the play here. A true legend who has spent many hours with Billy P.
Towson Hot Bagel for a quick bagel sandwich. Two locations around Towson. Best bagel shop in Baltimore.
