Waterfront Kitchen has a gorgeous interior, but every time we dine there we want to sit out on the back patio and take in the scenery. Watching boats, runners, and clouds all rolling along past you is a relaxing experience. If you have kids, pointing out various styles of ships is a great way to distract them while you eat Waterfront Kitchen's wonderful, locally grown fare. The Domino Sugar sign, the Under Armour sign, as well as vistas from Canton and Federal Hill, dot the landscape that you look upon. While it's not the most picture-perfect of views, it's Baltimore through and through.
