Trip Advisor Crabby about the crab cakes
Nov 22, 2014 by: telemarkJane from Lake Telemark, NJ
I heard this was "the place" to get the best crab cakes anywhere! I was visiting a friend and we ventured into the inner harbor, exploring the area, you could say. We visited a lovely Milener in the Inner Harbor and had hope to visit a shop that, upon our arrival, was closed for some reason unknown. I had been ready to drop some dough there...but whatever. Saved me a bit! Anywho...we went to Bertha's. Her bar was festively lit with strains of light. If you have to pee, do it there. The dining room are through a couple of corridors. The place is ok, but the best crab cakes I have personally experienced were at a fantastic little restaurant in Jim Thorpe, PA called Moya. Eri's crab cakes are the best I've ever had. If you are there over the winter, check in as I think their hours are limited. That being said...this is a NY quality restaurant tucked away in Shan-gri-la!

Trip Advisor We had a private party on the 2nd floor

And they took very good care of us. A memorial service for a friend who played jazz there for years. The staff were super accommodating and the room was just great. Thanks Bertha's for such a wonderful memory!

Trip Advisor Not a great show of mussels
Nov 10, 2014 by: Donna H from Halethorpe, Maryland
First time and was disappointed. The mussels are steamed plain with sauces on tne side for dipping. A dozen were 17.00. The special of the day in steamed in whatever the special is. This day it was butter, ham & apples. The special was better than the plain mussels but out of the 2 dozen we order 5 did not open (dead). The waitress forgot to give us bread when the other tables got it we had to ask for some. The jalapeno crab and macaroni and cheese and the cold beer was the highlight of the lunch. If you are looking for good mussels take your chance elsewhere for a much cheaper price.

Trip Advisor Poor Customer Service
Nov 06, 2014 by: Robin C from Baltimore, Maryland
I went here last weekend for the first time and it was a horrible experience. The bartenders were unprofessional and rude. I waited at the bar for long time to order. When I finally got the attention of one. She told me to hold on. After she finished with the customer she was helping she proceeded to take the order of everyone who was standing around me and completely ignored me. I will never go here again.

Trip Advisor Bertha's Muscles are weak!

Stopped in for some muscles with my daughter. After a half hour wait our muscles were served warm, not hot, with 2 pieces of bread. Greatly disappointed.
