Soup was good. Bang bang shrimp were mediocre. Husband had delicious jambalaya. Food was good but pretty expensive for the quality.

It’s a food factory in a prime location. It’s a tourist trap. It’s not good. Those of us that live there, choose other food options. Davis Pub, Carroll’s Creek, Chick and Ruth’s, Iron Rooster, Preserve, Vin 909,Grapes, Adam’s Ribs and more are far better choices.

My wife and I were in Annapolis this past Saturday and decided to have lunch at Buddy's Crabs and Ribs. The service was slow and the Crab Cakes not so great

The lunch/dinner menu has a good selection. Prices are average but this place is good for a mid day meal. They have views of the main street, the square, and the harbor here too.
