As other reviews note, Chick and Ruth's is a long-time Annapolis institution which has been a favorite of Naval Academy midshipmen, Maryland State House politicians and the many, many tourist visitors Annapolis receives. For the most part, Chick and Ruth's deserves its high marks for its sterotypical deli foods as well as its ambience. It is a "down home" restaurant... More

I started eating at Chick and Ruth's in the 1980's as a Midshipman at the Naval Academy, and I always make it a point to eat there at least once each time I return to Crabtown. I know that most graduates of USNA feel the same way. Ted has done a great job taking over from his parents and expanding... More

I go to Chick and Ruth's once a week for a "power breakfast". You always feel like part of the family when you eat there. Doing the pledge of allegiance is also a major boost to my day (around 8:30am every day). For anyone with ANY appetite......this is the place to go. You may get dizzy with the options on... More

Breakfast at Chick and Ruth's is an experience not to be missed in Annapolis. Be there by 0800 and stop to say the Pledge of Allegince at 0830 or later on the weekend. Take home a loaf of their marvelous 7 grain bread freshly backed on premise.

If you eat anywhere in Annapolis, you must stop here! And get the crab cake! Delicious! The menu is extensive, so if you have time look online before you come. Everyone enjoyed their food and we even got a visit from the magician. He was very funny and welcoming. Typical diner atmosphere and service. Very crowded!

Super local diner. The menu is what you would expect in a diner but the food is really well prepared and delicious. The service is excellent. Near the State Capitol and the Naval Academy.

Enjoyed our crab cake wrap and rueben sandwich here recently. We also enjoyed the Arnold Palmer (half tea, half lemonade)! We were there after the standard lunch rush, so it was no problem to get a table and the service was good. Very enjoyable lunch.

Chick and Ruth's has a very extensive menu of a wide variety of sandwiches, salads and omelets. Inside is narrow and I can imagine come summer time it is very crowded. There is one page that lists their specials for deli sandwiches. I ordered a pastrami sandwich. It did not list the price but I couldn't imagine it to be... More
