Such nice people, but...

I wanted to eat here just to say I had been. The people working there were very friendly and accommodating, really the highlight of the visit. Pancakes were huge and very good. Be aware that a side of scrapple consists of exactly one slice. The milk never arrived and was cheerfully removed from the... read more

They have the best Jumbo Lump Crab Cake anywhere. And the Reuben's are great. The Handmade Pies are the best I've had

Challenge: Man vs Food was taped here. And when you visit, you'll understand why. They have a 20oz milkshake, triple sized Reubens, and triple sized burgers. I think you can even get a huge crab sandwich/ crab cake. I had the regular pastrami and corn beef sandwich, which is at least a double portion of meat everywhere else. It was... More

This has been there since I moved here in the late 60s. It astounds me how people line up to get in and how the guide books rate it. In my opinion it is generally awful. They use the cheapest ingredients for everything and this is over 40 years of off and on experience. My office used to be right... More

This place looked from the outside like some old-time diner. So we had to check it out. We had omelets, which were okay, nothing special. We also got a couple of donuts to go, which were pretty good.

Very typical but very high quality deli fare with fast & helpful service. It is obviously a favorite among the Midshipmen and the legislators (for whom most of the sandwiches are named). The best dill pickles are served to everyone as soon as you sit down; they are the best. Don't go here if you like a lot of sitting... More

My wife and I were just wandering up the street around dinner time and the lengthy list of fresh baked pies caught our attention so we decided to stop in for a 'snack'. Turned out to be a shared cheese steak wrap followed by a piece of pecan pie a la mode - with a grapefruit sized mound of vanilla... More

An iconic Annapolis destination - fun, lively atmosphere, solid food, quirky traditions and characters. Long lines at times on weekends and downtown events, and cramped seating, but always a hit with the family and out of town guests, and service is fast and efficient. Awesome for late night shakes and burgers. Often see mids popping in a meal. Love the... More

Its like a little town "greasy spoon" without the grease! Food is always delicious and abundant; staff is friendly and accommodating and prices are very reasonable. The best place for a "treat" I won't disclose...other places sell the same thing for way too much and its not nearly as good!! Anything I've ever ordered here has been great. Fun place... More

The atmosphere is great fun, the food was delicious and the prices weren't bad either! A lot of fun! And they were grateful for our visit. Donuts and backed goods looked like to die for!
