Black Olive

814 South Bond Street Baltimore, MD 21231

After a renovation of the Fells Point General Store in 1997, The Black Olive sits in quaint elegance on the cobblestone section of Bond Street in old Fells Point, Baltimore’s waterfront Jewel. Though the restaurant itself is twenty years old, the spirit from which it springs holds a story that stretches through multiple generations.
