Our group of six went here for dinner and found a packed house. The atmosphere was nice but very busy and crowded. The food was very good but one disappointment was that they were out of one dish desired by two of us.

This bar and restaurant was located right around the corner from our B&B, so we thought we'd give it a try for lunch. If you like oysters, the baked oyster appetizer was absolutely delicious. We also had the fried clam strip appetizer, which was great too.

Service was a bit slow, even though the restaurant was not full. But I would definitely eat here again.

Outstanding experience for the family at Galway Bay for New years Eve. Excellent Irish heritage atmosphere with phenomenal staff that truly appreciated customers with children. Food was excellently prepared and the Cabbage Rolls, and Corned Beef Poppers were exquisite. The Beef and the lamb Stew were as perfect as usual, Salmon was very excellent, and the chicken strips rapidly disappeared on the 2 and four year old's plate, and Richard made sure their ice cream had Chocolate syrup as promised.

How could I almost forget the outstanding Nogs that they have this time of the year!

Richard also made sure to get the children's orders very quickly and their meals were being delivered very quickly which is always a plus.

Thank You Galway Bay and Thank You to our Server, Richard who was phenomenal as he always is.

Happy New Year to the Staff of Galway Bay. See You again soon!

Stopped here around mid-afternoon for a late lunch. The food wasn't bad, but we were seated at a very odd little table. It's main view was into the kitchen, literally looking at the kitchen sink. The other main decor around the table was the server's workstation where they put in the orders to the kitchen. The servers also congregated around our table to discuss their schedules, gossip, etc. As the restaurant was 90% empty, find it hard to believe that this was the best table available. Frankly, in a town with a lot of great restaurants, why should anyone put up with a place like this? We won't be coming back - from this experience, suspect the staff here won't be too broken up about it....

I stopped in for a bite and some drinks on Christmas Eve while waiting on my husband to get off work. My bartender, Christine(a?), was absolutely wonderful and made me feel right at home in Annapolis. An added surprise was the egg nog cocktail menu! Everyone was super friendly, and the food was great! The corned beef hash could have used some more corned beef, but it was still very good. The atmosphere was inviting and fun as well.
