“The real seafood restaurant in Baltimore”

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, our favorite pastime is to dine out, but we struggled to find the real taste of Baltimore seafood. We missed the classics, the ones that we could count on as kids, such as Connely’s & Hausner’s, the one we would visit with friends from out of town who say “take us to a real Baltimore seafood house.” We missed that and wanted to bring it back. That’s why we created Mama’s on the Half Shell. Our menu is the most important part of our restaurant, but we also want our guests to come in and feel comfortable for any occasion: bringing in a client, Sunday football, a birthday, anniversary or just some time out. It’s a great place to visit after a day on the water and it’s also remembered by some as the place where they got engaged. Our restaurant is a place that you could “bring it or bring it down.” There is really no average age at Mama’s on the Half Shell which leads us to believe this truly is a Baltimore classic for food and celebration. For a good start to a classic Baltimore meal at Mama’s, order a fried crab cake with mustard and our famous Orange Crush. Have a seat at the raw bar and just drift back into your best Baltimore memory, hon! It is our hope that when you are with us you feel you are welcomed into our home with open arms.

Baltimore is synonymous with fresh seafood and you'll find it here! The mac and cheese is a perfect side, and of course you have to get an Orange Crush (vodka, OJ and Sprite)!
