We stopped here on Friday after Thanksgiving with family that included our two year old grandson. Great good, great service, great views! We throughly enjoyed the crab soup and crab cake sandwiches. The waitress was very attentive to our needs with our grandson.

You need GPS to get the Point. Never having been here we set our time machine for crabs. After missing only one turn, we meandered through the neighborhood and found the dead end that promised crab. It was early Saturday evening and with a chill in the air the garage doors were down and the heaters on. We started with... More

Their happy hour is great, they have plenty of selections on their happy hour menu that are delicious. The spot is beautiful, definitely want to catch it on a nice day so you can enjoy the weather! Don't forget to bring your shades, some spots are right in the sun!

The Point is the best in the Annapolis area. Right on the water, great drinks, music on some evenings, great happy hour deals, and the food is amazing. Everything is homemade - right down to their ice cream sandwiches. Highly recommend for date nights, celebrations, or a random week night meal!

Even though it is called a "crab house", I would not consider this one in the traditional Maryland definition. I've been here a few times and can't even recall seeing anyone order crabs, although I am sure some do. I would describe this as more of a light lunch/dinner and cocktail spot on the water. That being said, it is... More

This is a quaint setting waterfront for a delicious seafood dinner. We wound up there on a very rainy, cool Saturday afternoon. No wait...great drinks, (loved the peach house drink!!!). Crap dip is a must with pretzels!!! Loved the tomato salad with crab cake!!!! Everyone enjoyed their entrees, Mom's crab soup, crab cake sandwich, etc. Be certain to save room... More
