The crabcakes might be the best in town but we will never know! We stopped by Dock Street for lunch on a Friday and it was half full. There were no clean tables so we sat at the bar. The bartender brought us an iced tea and then she was apparently finished with us because she never returned. There were... More

To set the stage: I had been awake since 7am the previous day, flown across the country, missed breakfast, and was ravenous. Based on Trip Advisor, while wandering Annapolis, I settled on Dock Street for lunch on Sunday. No reservations, at noon, probably a bad idea, etc. I was able to sit immediately at the bar. The staff were uber-casual... More

Today was my first visit to Dock Street Bar and Grill and it exceeded my high expectations for their crab cakes. We went during lunch and while it was busy, it was not crowded. There were four wait staff and they were all courteous, helpful, and attentive. They all refilled drinks and provided assistance as they saw a need promptly... More

We went here for lunch on a beautiful day in Annapolis. There are a handful of tables outside on the street . Inside is small but cozy. Service was really good. I got a cup of soup which was really good. My wife got crabcakes which were also good. the only letdown was that my sandwich, which was good, was... More

This little place doesn't look like much from the outside, but they have the most wonderful crab cakes in Annapolis. In fact there was so little filling I'm not sure how they held together. YUMMY!

This place, during the day and evening is a great place to sit down, have a drink and meal while watching the people walk by. By far, some of the best crab cakes we had while in Annapolis. The wait staff was on top of their game while we were there. The beer cold, the food hot and plentiful.

We went to Annapolis for a quick weekend trip. We asked the valet in town for a place with good crabcakes and his suggestion was Dock Street. Well, they were indeed some of the best jumbo lump crab cakes we've had.. Wings were good too..

Read many reviews of the best crab cakes in Annapolis. Had the opportunity to dine at two of the other nicely review restaurants and have to say this was the best tasting of all. All lump crab and no filling, but additionally, very good flavor and fried perfectly.

We arrived in town too late for most of the restaurants that close at ten, but Dock Street was open and serving until 1am! We have tried to get in on a couple occasions when they were just too crowded (a good sign) but later on a Tuesday evening was perfect. All of the staff was friendly and welcoming, and... More

Warm cozy bar with hands down the best crab anywhere's. Dockstreet has spoiled us and don't eat crabcakes, chowder, crab balls any where else because they fall so short of Dockstreets. Service always warm and attentive. Great place to host a private party upstair, fabulous food and very affordable.
