Worst place ever

Absolutely the worst customer service I have ever seen in my life. The waitress didn't bring out my order with the rest of the party. Then when she did, she only brought half of it.... 10 minutes later she brought the rest. Then she reached in front of me leaning over my shoulder while I was eating... read more

This place has been in downtown, right on Main Street for ever. I def would say Deli not a restaurant but not much of a difference. You walk in the owner, usually, yells how many and politely directs u where to go. There's two sections upstairs and downstairs. The walls are covered with hundreds of framed pictures of famous people,... More

Annapolis has certainly evolved over recent decades, but Chick & Ruth's is part of Annapolis bedrock. Something for everyone on their menu and breakfast all day! Don't miss the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. :-)

This is a real deli with a menu as extensive as it gets. The food is fresh, made on the premises and the sandwiches are fantastic. The rye bread was so good, I bought two loaves to go. I can't wait to go back.

As our schedule would have it we stopped here for breakfast on the way to Ocean City and on the way back for dinner. Breakfast was it's usual tasty experience which included chipped beef gravy and yes a colossal chocolate shake. Follow that with chocolate top cookies and a woopie pie to go. Yum. Then dinner a day later was... More

This is a local must go to place. The atmosphere is qwirky , the servers were fun and the good was exceptional. The soup is outstanding and the crab cakes were the best I've had while in Annapolis! Also try the malts, you won't be sorry!

The bowl of pickles on the table are yummy. Food is great too but don't miss the milkshakes - they are the best

We went a couple years ago. It is definitely "old schoo"-it is a little dirty, very small space and a little overwhelming with all the signs and pictures. The food was good, but not a relaxing atmosphere.

This deli in the heart of downtown has been around for years, now run by the son of the original owners. Almost every sandwich in the place is named for some political figure in Maryland and of course when there is a new Governor, he gets his named food anbd the other retires. They served the biggest milkshake in the... More

Small family deli that serves great all American food. A local landmark in Annapolis. Family owned and is worth your time.
