Came for lunch on recommendation. Small old Irish bar. Great character. Crab cake sandwich was fantastic. 2 small tables outside. Wish they had more. A little hidden not as touristy.

This very ambient restaurant has been an Annapolis institution for decades. Long, beautiful antique wood bar. Brass and wood decorations. Great food and ambience.
