About Ampersea

Ampersea is a waterside dining venue in Baltimore, Maryland. The goal of this venue is to always bring modern and authentic Maryland food to the table. This venue works closely with local farms, craft brewers, and winemakers. Ampersea wants an atmosphere that brings together community members and allows them to share locally grown foods.

Facilties And Capacity

The maximum number of guests Ampersea can accommodate is 150. All weddings over 35 guests require tables and chair to be rented from Select Event Group. The Frederick Douglass - Isaac Myers Maritime Park is an incredible spot to hold your wedding reception. It is one of Baltimore’s oldest waterfront buildings and will make some beautiful wedding photo backdrops. Events can be held inside, outside, or a hybrid of both. The Founders Room is a space reminiscent of an older Baltimore, with exposed brick and industrial wood beams. Another inside space is the Bearman Gallery, with floor to ceiling windows and balconies that overlook the Baltimore harbour. An outside event would be held on the Cardin Pier and the brick courtyard. This is another space where you can take in the breathtaking views of the harbour.

Services Offered

The reception site fee includes China, flatware, linens, and tables. The rehearsal dinner catering fee includes China, dessert, linens, set up, clean up, glassware, tastings, servers, tables, and chairs. The maximum capacity for rehearsal dinners is 95 guests. Rehearsal dinners receive exclusive venue access and private rooms or private sections. Bridal showers, engagements, elopements, rehearsal dinner, ceremonies, and receptions can all be celebrated at Ampersea. In addition to set up, clean up, in-house catering and an in-house bar, you will receive assistance in planning the event. The in-house bar serves house beer, wine, and liquor as well as specialty beer, wine, and liquor.

Cuisine

Catering services can be buffet style, family style, stations, or plated service. An outside cake is required. As for dinner, how about beef short rib dish or maybe a pan roasted salmon? The choices are endless, modern, and authentic.

    Amazing Views Amazing Service Amazing Food

    We just celebrated our daughter's wedding this past weekend at Ampersea. Here's the scoop: Randee - the wedding coordinator - was fantastic. She worked with us over the past several months on all the details. This made it so easy for us - we did the ceremony and the reception at their venue. The views are breathtaking and because its on the boardwalk, the space seems huge. Our guests loved that they could be inside with the food - or they could take it out onto the dock (and the 2nd bar!) to enjoy their food. My daughter arrived on the water taxi (aka - hired for 'pre-gaming') and that was the start of a fantastic night. The place was set up when we got there - and then the Ampersea team moved things around depending on the activities - a circle of chairs on the dock for family for the ceremony - then tables later to sit and eat. Everything is right here. There is no venue charge since they do the catering. And the food was fantastic! We had a raw bar, charcutier boards, chicken n waffles bites, chicken sliders and mini crab cakes. Dinner was sliced to order turkey breast and beef - with sides of potatoes and crispy bacon brussel sprouts. Then dessert - a Smith Island cake, chocolate mousse shooters and chocolate covered strawberries. Champagne toast - and oh yeh - late night truffle parmesan fries! The serving crew was so attentive and fast. The costs included gratuity, and all taxes - no hidden stuff. My daughter's first rule when selecting the venue was 'no carpeting - and must have a cool vibe' - Ampersea hit it out of the park. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    Ampersea was the PERFECT wedding venue!

    My new husband and I couldn’t be happier with our experience at Ampersea :) Randee was super friendly & professional, & made the wedding planning experience & day of so easy for us! Everyone LOVED the food, and the ambiance of the outdoor ceremony & indoor/outdoor reception were exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend having your wedding here!

    Great Food, Great Catering Service!

    Food was delicious and Randee was a joy to work with! She helped us plan a menu that fit our budget and also coordinated rentals with Select Event Group.
