Although Camden Yards is most commonly known for its groundbreaking design, you’ll be impressed with the selection and quality of food that is available to fans, too. Food choices at the ballpark begin with Boog’s BBQ, a concession stand found outside the park’s gates on Eutaw Street. Named after longtime Oriole slugger and 1970 American League MVP Boog Powell, this stand serves top-notch pork and pit beef sandwiches, as well as sides such as coleslaw and baked beans. Powell himself is a fixture during most games, and you can easily get his autograph and grab a photo with him while you wait in line.

Maryland is known for its crab, and this local favorite is reflected in the menu at Camden Yards. Look for the Old Bay Seafood concessions at sections 43 and 334, where you’ll face the task of choosing from such varied options as crab cakes, softshell crab sandwiches, crab soup, crab waffle fries and more. These stands have self-serve tins of Old Bay, so if you love this flavor of seasoning, you can top up your food. The Chipper stand at Section 65 offers kettle chips topped with all sorts of tasty toppings, including crab, pork rinds, bacon and more.

If you’re looking for a meal in a sit-down environment, look for Dempsey’s Brew Pub & Restaurant on Eutaw Street. It has an extensive menu of salads, burgers, sandwiches and more. Local favorites include the crab cakes and buffalo crab mac and cheese. Also on Eutaw Street is the Esskay Gourmet Hot Dogs stand, where you’ll find tantalizing hot dog varieties including franks topped with burnt ends, crab mac and cheese, bacon/chili/cheese, crab dip and more. If you’re in the mood for Mexican-inspired food, look for the Ole Mole stand at Section 31. Its menu features a wide selection of tacos and nachos.

Other notable choices throughout the park include the Flying Fruit Fantasy stand at Section 24, which sells a variety of fruit smoothies, the Kosher stand at Section 78, hand-rolled pretzels at Section 15, pizzas, cheese-stuffed breadsticks and meatballs Pizza Boli’s at sections 37, 270 and 366 and Asian-inspired food, including Bao buns, at the Tako: Asian Bistro stand at sections 49 and 53.
