I loved this restaurant for the casual ambience, good and affordable food and attentive waitstaff---what more can I say. It contrasted so much w/less than stellar experience at O'Leary's where waiter was indifferent and food was ok but so much more expensive.

The thing I like most about the Boatyard is the clientele. Annapolis prides itself in being the "sail boat capital of the world" and here you can get a glimpse of that boastful claim. Besides being a warm and friendly place, the bar is host...More

The Boatyard is where local sailors, fishermen and lovers of the Chesapeake enjoy pint drinks, great crab cakes and the freshest local seafood. Specialties include smoked fish of the day (on premise), cream of crab and Maryland crab soups and an extensive list of crab and seafood specialties. The First Lady came from the White House to enjoy our crab cakes. The Boatyard has the most extensive raw bar in the area including a variety of oysters, clams, shrimp and mussels. The Boatyard receives awards for being most family friendly and having the best burger on the Bay. Its weekend brunch is the best in the area. The Boatyard is located in the historic maritime district of Eastport-a short walk or water taxi from Annapolis City Docks. Its photo boat films the local sailing races and shows them nightly. Named by Coastal Living, Sailing World and Sail Magazine as one of world's top sailing/boating restaurants.
