We used to go here with frequency when we moved to this area 20 years ago. After a few kids, years pass...simply fell out of frequenting this restaurant. So, on a pretty day in Feb, as we strolled downtown, we decided to try it out...More

Ambiance was okay-warm and cozy-but the food was VERY disappointing and the service was below average. Oysters Rockefeller were absolutely the worst we've ever had. Skip this one!

Took family for lunch. Hung out in the lounge. Had crab soup that was great, sliders a little over cooked, but tasty. Would go back again, but lunch is the way to go. Was not packed and you can relax and not rush. Great service.

Enjoyed a couple of cold beers in the small room in the bar area. Fireplace was nice but the amount of noise, people rushing around and the crowd take away from the ambiance. Great location in the heart of Annapolis. Lots of shops to walk...More

We came for some casual weekday drinks with friends. The bartenders were fantastic. When I called the next day because I had accidentally left my card in the card folder, they were extremely helpful and kept it safe. We would definitely go back for their...More
