Awesome shakes and deli sandwich fare. Not fancy venue but good sandwiches in a family owned landmark on Main Street. Good food, average service and basic deli restaurant Open all hours and always busy. Local joint fun for all ages.

This place is an institution. Lots of history in the food and on the walls. Great Jewish deli menu with local favorites added in. I had the corned beef and thought it was great. I would love to be able to eat here on a regular basis. I wish I could have had the breakfast options too. Down side: The... More

This was my first trip to an Annapolis landmark and I loved it. It's certainly not for the fancy diner. It's old and the booths are small and the whole area is tight. It's also the place where the Governors of Maryland have their own booth and their own item on the menu. The crab cake was awesome and every... More

The food's good not great, the service's good not great, but you enter a world of great americana in the heart of Annapolis. Big menu, lots of choice. Join in the pledge of allegiance, it's cool and everyone is into it. We had a ball and totally enjoyed the atmosphere.

Dining at Chick and Ruth's is more of an experience than just getting good food. The ambiance is energetic and fun, and if you make it at 8AM, you get reminded of how we used to start our day in school. Let me warn you, however, only go if you are really hungry because their servings are enormous. You will... More

Fun place with a fun menu. Reasonable Prices. Not meant to be a steak House or Fine Dinning. It's where you go for Great Burgers and Milk Shakes! Fun place for Breakfast and almost always will catch a Senator or Congress men there! Especially while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag every morning!

This place is a must if you're visiting Annapolis. We had to wait outside for a table, but the owner was so entertaining while we waited, it didn't matter. They have a very extensive menu of typical diner food, and more. The crab cake sandwich was the best I ever had, and the milkshakes were also amazing. Just be prepared... More

I have been going to C&R since my early bar hopping years. This time came with my family, and boy was it packed for New Years Day, but the food was good and the entertainment of watching the owner, Ted sit customers was fun. Amazed how people come in and out and don't complain even if seated next to the... More

Good restaurant with plenty of selection. Tight fit with tables close together. Nicely located in downtown Annapolis with plenty of night life.

I live near Annapolis and used to live in Annapolis, so I have been to Chick and Ruth's many times. Most recently I was here two days ago with my brother. The atmosphere is funky. It is painted a fairly deep orange which isn't really my thing, but it isn't too bad. This is a deli in the middle of... More
