Chick and Ruth's has been a staple of Main St in Annapolis for decade (and so has the owner Uncle Teddy). Excellent diner food, especially the pastrami (and other meats), that can definitely rival those of NYC. Note, even if there is a long line outside, you will usually never have to wait longer than 30 minutes....5-stars!

This Delly is a long-time Annapolis food establishment. It is named after the current owner's mother and father. Sandwiches are named after elected officials in the State Legislature. Excellent deli-style food; served anytime day and night.

If you spend any time in Annapolis, you will walk past Chick and Ruth's. You can't go wrong with any meal, but breakfasts are classically diner-great. You might have a short wait, but that's because everyone knows how good they are, particularly the locals (like me). Great food, fun atmosphere, great wait and counter staff, great location.

Great location - downtown Annapolis. Sandwiches named after political people! Hustle bustle atmosphere but service is prompt. Delicious food.

Great local spot in the middle of Annapolis where locals and tourists sit shoulder to shoulder. The food is very good and priced right. Excellent crab cakes!

If you've come to Annapolis, then you must visit Chick & Ruth's -- either for breakfast (replete with a join-in Pledge of Allegience) or lunch (with sandwiches named after local politicians). A real bit of "local flavor"....

There is no reason to visit Chick & Ruth's. It is jammed with tourists and the food is not good. Ted is a charming host but otherwise, a much better choice for breakfast is 49 West.

Over the top cramped and crowded but the food is good. C and R is a great place to people watch...and the food is decent. All visitors should go once.

This is a small establishment but the food is good and comes to you hot and just as ordered. The service is excellent and they treat you like you have been coming there for years. Ted is awesome and the kids look forward to his magic tricks. This is one of our regular stops for family breakfast.
