The food selections at Fells point had a more casual vibe than the dining selections at Kali’s court. However, the creativity of the meals and quality of ingredients was on the same level as the former restaurant. Like many other places, the menu was seasonal with selections such as fried calamari served with apple fennel slaw, grilled swordfish sandwich served on a brioche bun, mahi-mahi tacos, pear gorgonzola flatbread, arugula salad served with citrus vinaigrette, as well as different sliders. Fells Point Tavern’s operating working hours were from 5 pm to 1 am Monday through Friday, and 11:30 am to 1:30 am on Saturday and Sunday. The joint also featured a “Happy Hour” Monday through Friday from 5 pm to 7 pm, where special drinks were served, and various meals sold at half the normal price (which is a nice break for your credit card, and credit in general!)
