This restaurant is larger than it's competitors. There's a dining area along with a bar area. Nothing special about the food. It's the same bar food you can get at any of the Annapolis restaurants. We were in there late evening on a Sunday night...More

I came here twice last weekend(both lunches). The server recommended the fish and chips and did not steer me wrong! The Hogans sandwich was also amazing!

Friday night. What a great experience. With USNA graduation over and it being Memorial Day weekend, the place was not crowded. The crab cake, the salmon, and the fish & chips were all super. Service was very attentive. Definitely would return.

We had a family dinner here and the service was excellent and the drinks and food were great. Highly recommend the cheese bruschetta and the Crabby Patty - you won't be disappointed.

Had a great meal here. Fresh crisp Caesar salad, crab cake platter and fish and chips. I liked that they give you an option of 1 or 2 crabcakes. 1 was plenty. All crabmeat and no filler. The fish and chips were crisp and delicious....More

if not readily available on street you can check the dock area. If none there, right on main st is the hillman parking garage, a 3 minute walk and most restaurants validate.
