I went here on my short stay in Baltimore. Best place I ate at the whole 5 days. Roasted chicken with stuffing and mashed potatoes were to die for. Waitress was very nice and service was great. 5 stars from me!
great place. place is classic baltimore. been on food network recently for there crabcakes and spinach pie. prices are great too. always know that i can get a good filling meal. not fancy shmancy but its ok. real food for normal people.
I just dont get it.. Ive been coming to sip n bite for years and years. Its my go to spot after bar hoping or early morning breakfast. As I look through the facebook pictures all I see it Sophia on the show and there are way better people from sip n bite that should have been on the show. Sophia is not the face of sip n bite and i think its ridiculous that that is what they are presenting. Maybe your trying to spiffy up the place but i like that little bit of old baltimore grime that comes with sitting down and eating here. You will never get a clean fork at sip n bite ( so bring your own) but you will know the people who are serving you and you'll know the crab cakes are awesome.
Avoid this Restaurant.

your much better off eating across the street at Captain
James ...you have been WARNED..avoid this place
Skip & Run From This Horrible Place.
My brother & I decided to walk down to the sip & bite for lunch after hearing so much hype from our friends. I think we need new friends. We settled in a booth after first walking past 5 dirty tables in an empty restaurant. Ten minutes later, the waitress greeted us with "I'm sorry, didn't see you sitting there" in an empty restaurant, mind you. We both quickly decided on the turkey reuben with cole slaw and fries. Again, 15 minutes later, the waitress returned to tell us they were out of sauerkraut. Our food should have been ready by then!!!!! My brother then ordered a turkey club with NO bacon, and I got a BLT. Another 15 minutes later, a dry turkey club WITH bacon arrived. Five minutes later, the BLT. The waitresses are either too old to remember the order or the proper way to wait tables or they just don't care. I think its a combination of both. One sandwich came with fries as the menu promised and for some reason the other didn't.
If you are looking to spend average diner prices for poor service and dry food, Sip & Bite is the place for you. We will never return.
Sip & Bite Baltimore - Unappreciative staff with 50% Tip - CRAZY??. 12/30/2008 - Food was ok and staff was initially courteous during busy time, after hours. We were very understanding, communicating no problem for delay in service...wait staff seemed to be working hard. When presented with bill, wait staff was given $40 on $20 bill, and actually asked if change was needed...100% tip, are you NUTS? This was not a 5 Star restaurant....however, I did have empathy and said only $10 change was needed, which was a 50% tip - she provided me change with No thank you, and Attitude...I will never go back....a simple thank is all that was needed!!

Best Home cooked meals.. I've been eating at Sip +bite since 1980.I love the service here.Its nice to be treated good and the food is just like home cooking.From the Roast Beef to the Crab Cakes.
The best crabcakes on Earth, and open all night!.
I started coming to this place when I was thirteen, back in 1995, and I have been coming ever since. I've since moved away from Baltimore, having lived in Los Angeles and Raleigh, NC, and I have to say that this is still my favorite greasy spoon. I mean, it's a diner that serves beer, first of all. And the crowning jewel is the crabcake.
I grew up in Baltimore. I grew up eating delicious crabcakes at street fairs, carnivals, slapped off a spatula onto a plate in my grandmother's kitchen, and all over the city. Since leaving B-more, I've ordered crabcakes in various establishments in all levels of restaurants across the nation, which have never equaled the quality of the humble Baltimore crabcake. And Sip & Bite's version is by far and away the best of the bunch.
Lots of crabmeat, tender and unobtrusive breading, a delicate flavor and fork-tender consistency make this crabcake the staple of my visits to the old hometown. The fries are crispy and not too salty, the pickled beets are tangy and just right, and the waitstaff is competent and not annoying.
One can smoke in this restaurant, the bathrooms are small, but seem clean, and it is open all night. I can't think of a bad thing to say about this place -- I am a devout foodie, and I still prefer the grimy-diner ambiance and delicious greasy food of Sip & Bite to pretty much anywhere in the city.
Go, and enjoy!
