Loved this restaurant! At the Annapolis power boat show Oct '18 and found the best for service, crab cakes and clams. Oysters are great. Really enjoyed the seafood sampler with chorizo - highly recommend this. Will return for next year's boat show!! Very noisy; acoustics are only drawback.

Boat Show weekend so this place was packed. Service was fine and the seafood was terrific. Yellowfin Flounder, crab, Oysters, halibut, shrimp, lobster rolls, scallops, steamers, and flounder. You want seafood they have seafood. Rockfish, calamari, salmon, filet, fish and chips are all very tasty. You can even get fish tacos, she-crab soup and lots of choices for salads. Very loud, noisy place. If you want a quiet romantic dinner, Fuggettaboutit. Enjoy

My meal here was just fine...nothing great...but certainly not bad. It is quite a popular place, although it seems more of a bar atmosphere with food. It probably won't be a regular stop for me, but it certainly has its place in Eastport/Annapolis.

We absolutely loved the atmosphere and the service was outstanding. The house salad was great & the Regatta Nachos were delicious and a very generous portion. The crabcakes were the best we've ever had. We topped off our meal with our first ever Smith Island Cake....beyond divine! It inspired my daughter and I to make one from scratch when we went back home to California. Boatyard would be my local favorite if I were to relocate back in Annapolis for good :).
