    I'm totally in agreement with the previous reviewer. Villa is a wonderful Italian/family restaurant/bar! I couldn't count the times we've stopped there for a relatively inexpensive dinner with drinks. The restaurant really won my heart one day when I ordered linguine with clam sauce. Divine. If you can't find your favorite Italian dish here, it probably hasn't made it's way to America yet.

    Clean, quiet, inexpensive, large rooms, great beds, nice in-room amenities, what's not to like with this Best Inn Hotel? We've stayed elsewhere on visits to Baltimore, but Best Inn remains our favorite. Located northeast of downtown and the Inner Harbor, travelers won't find nite life anywhere close, but I-895 is less than a mile away, so the hotel location is ideal for anyone traveling with family or on a limited budget. I think you get more than you pay for at this hotel.

    We didn't stay quite long enough at J. Paul's American Bar & Grill to actually see any lights go on at the Inner Harbor(but hey, that's a great idea for our return)as we were only there for lunch and some cocktails before a game at Camden Yards. Truth be told, we spied the J. Paul's Terrace Bar opening up and figured this was a great place to view the harbor, people watch, eat, drink, and enjoy ourselves being fanned by breezes and out of the sun. The food was tasty, the cocktails wonderful, and the vantage point for taking in the sights of The Inner Harbor was superb. We'll definately return here for more of the same.

    Eggs Benedict served over lump crabmeat. Decadent and delicious as a Sunday starter. My mate ordered the seafood omelette and DD the Belgium Waffle. The omelette was the fluffiest and largest I had ever seen. Wife pronounced it ""divine"". DD has experience with Mt. Vernon because it is so close to her home. I'm glad she escorted us here. Upstairs dining room is unpretentious, but inviting. Service was very friendly and efficient. Staff knows the regulars, regulars know the staff, all have a good time at this great brunch location.

    Our visit to Howe's Bayou recently was wonderful. We love cajun/creole inspired foods, and oysters, of course. Our meal here brought us back to the memories we have of Parish Louisiana cooking. We sampled as much of the menu as possible for two diners: Washington State oysters on the half shell, crawfish bisque, seared shrimp over pasta in a cajun while sauce, Mustard Shrimp deep fried, and sweet potato fries. I wish I could be there right now! Service was exemplary. Dining room/bar very comfortable. We plan on returning SOON.

    The 7PM ""dinner cruise"" is well worth it...if you avoid the meal. The Mississippi at New Orleans is approximately half a mile wide and several hundred feet deep in order to accomodate ocean vessels docking at the Port Of New Orleans. The Natchez Steamboat goes down river approximately five miles, then returns upstream. The trip is two hours elapsed time. The Boat's captain and first officer provide a running commentary of what passengers are seeing along the way. The true highlite of the trip is listening to the Dukes Of Dixieland play jazz standards from cast off to docking. The ride is pleasurable, smooth and ends too soon. Eat first on shore, and visit the bar in the main salon for liquid libation.

    What a terrific neighborhood bar. That they feature jazz performed by some of the best musicians in The Crescent City is all good. We were treated like locals when we stopped in for a drink and to catch a set by Jack Fine and the Algiers Stompers. Live jazz at 4:00 in the afternoon on a SUNDAY. The bar itself is open, airy and comfortable. You'll wind up in a lot of interesting conversations with many different folks when you stop in. Just great. Just great. Just great.

    Quarter Scene was on our ""brunch"" list. But we fell into this sweet bistro just before 11:00 PM on a Saturday night because we were famished after a liquor-induced, stupified stroll at the ""west"" end of the Quarter. We got to sit at Tennessee William's favorite table for our late night dinner. We basked in the aura of that luck throughout our meal. I had an absolutely wonderful hamburger. My mate ordered the chicken fried steak. As we munched on great foods, we watched out of our personal window(really, Tennessee's), a veritable parade of buff gays stomping their way toward Bourbon Street for the final night of Southern Decadence. Nothing more needs to be said about this great eatery.
