This Restaurant, located on Market Street, and very close to the Dock in historical Annapolis, was very easy to find. Surprisingly, the four of us were able to find a table right away here. All the neighboring places had about 45 minutes to an hour of waiting. We were greeted and welcomed very warmly at the door. Our server, Michelle,... More

Looking for lunch spot near the US Naval Academy. After kids turned down a couple of places and wife turned down hotdogs, we found this place while walking down this neat little town. Got a seat pretty quickly and food was very good. Son and I each had the Crabby Patty, which is a burger with onion ring and great... More

Here for a football game. Parking is tough but the food was great. Family had variations of burgers, crab cake sandwich, and other food. All GREAT. The "hangover" and the "academy grilled cheese" were very tasty. Highly recommend!!

Although I'm sure this isn't a surprise for most locals, as I usually visit other restaurants about City Dock, I was very pleased with the quality and service I received here. They had a great Happy Hour special for all Appetizers at $6.99 and most drinks at half price (A dozen raw oysters were included in this price.) Riley, the... More

Went here for the first time and sat at the bar. Good service, good beer, and loved the historic feel and atmosphere. However, I ordered sea bass on a bed of rice with some stuff on top of it. The fish had no flavor at all. I was disappointed. I'd go back but would order something different or just have... More
