Welcome to Rye Street Tavern

Baltimore Peninsula's newest waterfront dining destination, Rye Street Tavern is the latest venture by Clyde’s Restaurant Group (CRG), renowned for its commitment to premium food, exceptional service, and unforgettable dining experiences.

At Rye Street Tavern, we blend the rich culinary traditions of the South with innovative and locally sourced ingredients. Under the expert guidance of Baltimore-native and Executive Chef John Navarria, who brings over two decades of culinary expertise, our menu offers a diverse selection that caters to every palate, including vegetarian and gluten-free options. From fresh seafood and house-made pastas to savory southern-inspired dishes, each meal is crafted to perfection. Whether you are here for a casual lunch, a business dinner, or a weekend brunch, Rye Street Tavern promises an exceptional dining experience.

Our restaurant’s design, led by GrizForm Design Architects, draws inspiration from the elemental and raw beauty of the Patapsco River waterfront and the nearby Sagamore Spirit Distillery. Our extensive renovation has created a space that is both welcoming and versatile, featuring a fully redesigned kitchen, oyster bar, and a spectacular outdoor dining venue with a 75-seat island bar as its centerpiece. The interior features a harmonious blend of historical charm and modern sophistication, with a rich palette of wood, raw steel, leather, glass, and stone. Guests can enjoy a variety of dining environments, including an open kitchen with U-shaped leather booths, a stylish bar and oyster bar with panoramic waterfront views, and a unique outdoor bar area. We proudly feature Sagamore Spirit Rye in our robust cocktail menu, celebrating our close connection to the award-winning distillery next door.

Rye Street Tavern is more than just a restaurant; it is a vibrant part of the Baltimore Peninsula community. We are committed to contributing to the local economy by creating over 150 new hospitality jobs and offering opportunities for local hiring. Our lively atmosphere is enhanced by regular live music performances on the patio, making us a hub of entertainment and social activity for both locals and visitors.

We invite you to join us at Rye Street Tavern and experience the best of Baltimore’s culinary and cultural heritage. Whether you’re enjoying a meal with family and friends, hosting a private event, or simply relaxing with a cocktail by the water, our goal is to create memories that last a lifetime.
