Baltimoreans and visitors to the city’s Inner Harbor no longer have to venture to the counties for a taste of Pappas’ crab cakes.
Pappas Sports Bar opened at the Holiday Inn Inner Harbor at 301 W. Lombard St. as part of the hotel’s $4 million renovation. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner daily with menu items including burgers, salads, steaks and, of course, its signature crab cakes.
Pappas has restaurants and a seafood market in Parkville, Cockeysville and Glen Burnie. The company’s crab cakes have been listed among Oprah Winfrey’s annual “Favorite Things” lists, and she’s a loyal customer. Last fall, Winfrey ordered 175 crab cakes for the cast and crew of “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” when they were filming in Baltimore.
In addition to the new restaurant, the Holiday Inn’s renovation included updates to all 365 guest rooms and an overhaul of its public spaces — the lobby, coffee and gift shops, business center, indoor pool and events spaces.
“The renovations are extensive — it looks and feels like a brand new property and we couldn’t be happier,” general manager Adam Novotny said in a statement.
