Fast service for good food

Although I was there at a busy time, I ordered within five minutes and it was ready in another five to ten minutes. I forget the name, but basically a Rueben with cole slaw instead of sauerkraut, good sandwich on rye. I considered a side of cole slaw, the server reminded me that it was also on my... read more

We chose Chick & Ruth's based on the " Man vs Food" TV show. The 6 lb shake was great but a lot of milkshake! Took all 4 of us to finish. I had a crab cake sandwich that absolutely one of the best I have ever had. Great Deli atmosphere and the friendly service was great. We will be... More

I have eaten in hundreds of diners in America, and this, from the 60's, old place is both authentic and a purveyor of delicious food. Everything we ordered was delivered in huge portions and was outstanding; Crab omelette, simple eggs, sausage and toast, corned beef hash, all were the definition of home cooked, and all were served by a lovely,...

C&R's is an Annapolis icon & has been around since the 60's. Whether you want an awesome breakfast or have a late night munchie this is the place to go. Their menu has such a variety of choices if you can't find something you like well than you're too picky of an eater to dine out. This is a family... More

In Annapolis for NCAA Men's Lacrosse Quarter Finals. Decided to do breakfast instead of tailgating. Great choice to stop at Chick and Ruth's. Arrived at 9:30AM on a Sunday morning. Had a 10 minute wait and then got seated at a table right inside front door. Staff was great, food was outstanding. Crab and cheese omelet is highly recommended. Whoopie... More

We were traveling back to NJ and hit Chick and Ruth's on our way out. They packed our uncooked crab cakes in ice. Two hours later we got home and cooked them in the oven. Unbelievable!! Now I understand what a real Maryland Crab Cake taste like. A must in Annapolis!

This place is loud and colorful, with lots of character. I've been here several times and all the food has been good, but the Crab Eggs Benedict is delicious! I always want to try one of their fantastic-looking homemade desserts, but am too stuffed after my scrumptious meal.

If you go only once during your visit, try it. (I went three times on a weekend trip.) For breakfast and lunch. The service is warm and efficient and the food is just what you'd expect from a old neighborhood establishment that serves a hamburger with multiple patties and a milkshake served in a glass big enough for 12! Or... More

The best crab cake in Annapolis - big chunks of meat with hardly any filler. The best corn beef hash made with the real thing - no ground meat here. And the Apple Fritter. Homemade donuts, 24 kinds of pie. A huge menu, big portions. Smiling staff and an owner that does magic tricks. Often a long line. The crab... More
