Everyone knows Wolfgang’s Steakhouse as the place to go for high-quality meat and all the traditional steak house fixings. But what you might not know is that it’s also a place to indulge in everyone’s favorite pastime: weekend brunch.

Brunch is available Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Among the selections are Chicken and Waffles ($14.95), which features house-made waffles topped with powdered sugar and fresh berries, alongside generous heaps of chicken.

“The chicken is marinated in buttermilk, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper,” explains general manager Bill Nick-erson. “The savoriness of the chicken pairs amazingly with the sugar and saltiness of the waffle.”

There’s good news for night owls, too: Wolfgang’s is now open until midnight daily. And here’s good news for everyone: Happy hour runs from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., daily. The long happy hour, Nickerson says, makes for “a lot of happy people.”


The brunch menu also has a selection of specialty Eggs Benedicts, including Maryland Crab Cake Benedict ($29.95). The dish offers two poached eggs with a Maryland Crab Cake on an English muffin. It’s served with crisp German potatoes — boiled, fried and baked — and hollandaise sauce.
