Step into our historic building, and you will immediately be greeted by its red-brick walls, exposed beams, and intimate bar space leading to an open and airy dining room and our fantastic back patio set for outdoor dining and conversations around our fire pit (weather permitting!).

Sit at the bar to enjoy an artisanal beer or oak-aged bourbon alongside a quick bite of charcuterie meats and cheeses, crispy brussels sprouts, or shark fries. Or venture into the heart of Copper Shark for a leisurely chef-inspired meal created by Chef Matthew Audette.

In addition to seasonal masterpieces, you can always count on classic cuisine like our petite filet, soup du jour and pot du creme. Weather permitting, we encourage you to cozy up next to our courtyard fire pit.

Sundays we only have Brucnh service

    Great space to dine if you are looking for ambiance. The food was okay considering the price ($$$). However, the service was top tier, the place was decorated smartly, the cocktails were yummy and therefore, would dine again at this location. *I ordered the pan seared scallops, and my guest ordered the short rib.

    Server was lovely and made the dinner really nice for me and my daughter. I was disappointed in the consistently of the steaks. When you pay $65 for a filet, it should be dialed. My daughter’s filet had a nice sear and was perfect medium rare. My filet was gray and medium pink throughout, just didn’t have the appropriate sear and was obviously cooked differently. If I paid $30 for the steak I wouldn’t mind. The pot de creme dessert was really tasty:)

    We arrived on time for our 7p reservation for a table for 6. We were told we might have to wait up to an hour for our table because the current occupants weren’t finished. Since we didn’t want to wait an hour, they sat us at a booth that fits 4 to 5 comfortably. We were definitely cramped in this space which somewhat diminished the overall experience. That said, the food was good and the service from our waiter Claire was lovely.

    We really like Copper Shark and visit regularly. It has a warm, casual, cool ambiance that is very comfortable. The food is usually very good, though it is not always consistent in our experience, but the staff is very friendly, and the service is always good. I do wish they had some healthier menu selections, but this is a good choice for brunch with friends or a casual business lunch.

    Leisurely dinner with local friends was made brilliant by a visit to Copper Shark. From the special crafted Old Fashions to the charcuterie and Brussels, to the Steaks and deserts, they knocked it out of the park on all notes. Well done! Highly recommend.

    I’ve never rated a restaurant 10/10, but this place is my new favorite. Every recommendation our server made was perfect. Every single minute I spent in there was worth more than every penny I spent on the bill. The food was great, drinks were phenomenal and the service was excellent. I am bringing everyone I know here.

    Brussels sprouts appetizer and blueberry ice cream dessert were amazing. Scallops ($41) unfortunately had no sear; mushy consistency. Salmon was OK but unremarkable. Sadly, we had the worst service, such a bummer! It was a slow night, but our waitress seemingly forgot about us several times. As in, took our drink order and literally didn’t return for 25 minutes. (And one of the four drinks was wrong.) Bottle of wine took 30 minutes to arrive. Maybe our server had a bad night and it was an anomaly. The manager was apologetic and stepped in before dessert, which we appreciated. I advise sitting at a high-top in the bar and ordering from the bar menu. (You can’t order from the bar menu in the dining room.) The grilled cheese was tasty. I would go back for that! I am not one to write negative reviews but this really ruined our night.

    Espresso martinis are delicious! We had a drink at bar and then sat in dining room for dinner. The food was excellent. We ordered Ploughmans Platter (charcuterie) and crispy Brussels. Portions were larger than expected and everything was delicious. Also had the roasted duck with pasta. So tasty! Service was great and wine pours were a good size. Will definitely go back!

    They've done a wonderful job in re-inventing the space that used to be The Wine Market in Federal Hill. With a menu that delivers what it promises, there is something for everyone. Appetizers are big enough for sharing (we were 3)- and the Caesar Salad with the whole white anchovies is the bomb. The wine list also provides a good selection at a reasonable dollar value (a young Barolo @ $80). Deserts selection is good, but my olive oil cake was dry and somewhat overcompensated by the accompaniments. Service was spot on, too. The ambience is great, with a lively bar area (where the bottle shop used to be!) and the big room now offers a quite rescue conducive to a business or romantics dinner. We certainly plan to return and look forward to when outside dining returns.

    Wonderful new addition (new to me) to the Baltimore dining scene. Service was excellent on both visits (shout out to Claire (Clare?) who served us on our second visit. I thought they had too heavy a hand with the salt shaker on the Coq au vin but otherwise, it's an excellent dish; it just doesn't need so much salt.

    Our first trip was for Saturday Brunch before a show. We were not disappointed. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals and what little we did not finish came home for later. Serving sizes were generous and service was cheerful, professional, and attentive. The steak was cooked perfectly as was the shrimp & grits. The breakfast burger (8oz) was filling, well seasoned, and topped with a smoky and slightly sweet bacon jam. The drinks were also top notch, making us wish we had more time to try some others. We will be back!!

    We love this restaurant in many ways: Interior, food, service and location. What we struggled with was the unnecessary loud music. We felt like we were at a club at 6:30 in the evening! Even our young waiter brought it up before we had to ask to turn it down! The manager did bring the volume down slightly… it was still too loud!

    Our meal started well with appetizers and very attentive wait staff by the time we were received our meals the restaurant was significantly more busy. 2 or our 3 entrees needed salt and we were not able to find our waiter again for over 45 mins. We finally gave up on desert and asked for our check.

    I’ve now visited this restaurant three times for dinner, brunch, and bar menu, and I’ve been very impressed each time. I love the ambience here and the service is exceptional. I also love that they have parking. But the food and drinks are consistently good. Everyone in my party each time we’ve eaten here has also always enjoyed their food so I definitely will put this in my rotation moving forward, I recommend!
