This place probably has the best steaks in Annapolis. A cozy atmosphere with friendly servers at your beckoned call. Looking for a place to entertain that special person or for a very special occasion, look no further.

This family run steakhouse combines great food, great service with a fantastic wine list. It's like if Smith and Wollensky was run by people who really cared rather than by corporate types. No offense to corporate types but there is an intimacy that a family...More

I didn't take notice to be honest as we went to just have steak. I'm sure they have non meat items on the menu. I would not recommend their sides though as they were greasy and over cooked.
