We live very close to Lista's Grill and hadn't stopped in for many years. Our mistake. Ordered the cagan cream of crab soup. so good. Friendly staff. Owner stopped by our table each time we have had dinner. Everything tastes so good and the super sized bar drinks are fun. Worth the trip but get there early because came a 4 and tables were filling up fast.

Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so glad you liked our award-winning Cream of Crab Soup and hope to see you again soon!

For TripAdvisor readers, reservations are never required, but we would recommend that if you'd like to dine with us on FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS at peak dinner hours, you should make a reservation the day before to avoid having to wait. Our owner/hostess Kathy has over 30 years of experience in managing customer flow and seating parties quickly, but we do take reservations seriously and will hold tables for them. Thanks!

Consistently excellent food and service. Family owned. Used to be located in Fells Point. Make reservations. On weekends the line is out the door.

Laurie, thanks so much for your compliments and review! We're so happy to have you as our customer!

For TripAdvisor readers, yes, on Fridays and Saturdays it is a good idea to make a reservation--especially for larger parties, but reservations are never required. We'd also like to take the opportunity to point out that if there is not physically a line waiting outside, then the wait at Lista's is usually quite short! Our hostess/owner, Kathy, has been managing customer flow and table bookings for over 30 years and has an UNCANNY knack of knowing how long tables will take to become available. Even if there are people waiting in the vestibule or entrance, it's always best to check. A small line could simply be a single large party waiting to be seated. Reservations can be made by calling 410-437-8999 after 4pm or via the form on our web site.

I love the family atmosphere and the food is delicious. We've never gotten anything we didn't like. The fajitas are excellent and the homemade guacamole is so creamy and fresh.

We had a group of 8 and we had great food and service. Not the best atmosphere, but no problems. Our server was attentive and did a great job. Nice casual dining.
