Sixty long years ago...

...our family opened The Poplar Inn with the simple goal of providing a warm, friendly restaurant that serves great food at affordable prices — and we've been doing business that way ever since. Today the Poplar Inn is still one of Eastern Baltimore's favorite family restaurants. Our menu features our famous Crabby Wings®, all-American classics as well as a few ethnic specialties from our family's recipes.

We also have an adjoining bar with live music every Friday and Saturday night, and room for catering your party or private gathering. Look around our web page to see what's going on, and be sure stop by and visit us soon!

Be sure to check out our Daily Specials, or visit our Facebook page and tell us what you think.


Come join us for our painting nights and have a bite!



All-day Saturday and every Saturday...families can enjoy ONE FREE KID’s MEAL from our kids menu, including ice cream, with each adult meal purchase (in-house special only). There will be balloons, coloring & displays of your kids' artwork!

Here's what our customers have to say!


We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of two members of The Poplar Inn family, Dee Biedenback and her boyfriend, Rick O'Hare.

Dee worked for The Poplar Inn for 16 years.  She was an incredible organizer, crafter, decorator and Ravens fan.  She was very giving.  She would buy Christmas gifts for all our employees even if they only worked here a week.

Rick worked for The Poplar Inn one day a week but his devotion to the Poplar Inn was boundless just like Dee's. 

They had been together over 16 years. Our heart goes out to their families.

We are also saddened by the passing of Carleen James, our dear friend and a loyal employee for over 53 years. Please use click here to share your memories of her.
