McHenry's, Sheraton Inner Harbor, 347-1818. Whether for an early business meeting, a be-nice-to-yourself way to ease into the workday or a leisurely weekend meal, the Sheraton offers a steal of a breakfast. The buffet, for $4.95 ($5.95 on weekends), is a tasteful way to start the day without committing great amounts of time or money. Those preferring a lean, nutritious breakfast can choose from fruit, yogurt and hot and cold cereals. But the buffet has more: very good scrambled eggs, bacon, waffles, potatoes and slightly dry biscuits. $inexpensive. (Last visited 5/91.) Pizzeria Uno, Pratt Street Pavilion, Harborplace, 625-5900. Not even a super harbor view and an amusing, stylishly retro decorating job can rescue this casual eatery from the doldrums. We found its popularity inexplicable in view of zipless nachos, depressingly gringo-ized fajitas, salty soup and a deep-dish pizza crust sodden with sausage grease. The ice cream desserts are good messy fun, though (and impossible to oversalt). But numero uno? No way. $ 1/2 inexpensive to moderate. (Last visited 6/91.)

LYNN WILLIAMS Fells Point Cafe, 723 Broadway, 327-8800. Though the Cafe is part of a cafe, theater and nightclub combination, all that activity doesn't disturb the progress of dinner. The place looks modest and, so far as we could tell, doesn't have serious culinary ambitions. The menu focus is on fish -- crab cakes, shrimp and scallops, Cajun-style blackened swordfish. The meal's best feature was orzo mixed with particles of broccoli. $$$expensive. (Last visited 5/91.)
