The food was average at best, but perhaps our enjoyment was skewed by a service gaff. Our waitress brought the wrong order, barely acknowledged the mistake (except to note it was the 2nd one she did that night), promised the correct meal would come promptly (it didn't) and generally acted as if she didn't care. We had a cod special... More

I celebrated my birthday with my family and friends at this restaurant and it was a five star event. I grew up in Ireland and Kevin Duffy, their head chef gave me a meal that I could only get in Ireland- Bacon and Cabbage!! It was such a treat in North America!! The service was excellent and everyone enjoyed the... More

I have always been a fan of Galway Bay. The service is great and the food is consistently good. We always get the mussels which by the way are hands down best I have had anywhere. The Prime Rib salad is my favorite and my husband loves their burgers which are always well prepared and come with fantastic steak fries.... More

Can only recall the delicious crab cake we had, but it was sufficient to the place 5 points, together with the nice atmosphere and the correct service.

Saw it from Triple D and went to try the cabbage roll appetizer. Excellent. Also had fish sandwich with fries. Also very good. Service was excellent, place was clean, with great atmosphere. They have a great selection of Irish food with a twist. I'll go back and try some other entrees. If you are visiting Annapolis, give it a go.... More

My husband and I decided to check this place out finally (I had heard about this place on Food Network, Guy Fieri) last weekend, and we were not disappointed. Let me start out with the best thing about this place: the Bread Pudding! It was absolutely delicious! We had the Corned Beef Poppers which were really amazing, and that's coming... More

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon as our first stop in Annapolis because we saw some great reviews on other sights. The bartenders were not friendly at all and the Irish music in the background was too low. The food was mediocre at best. Pretty sure you can have a better experience somewhere else.

Only reason I gave it 3 points out of 5 was due to the fact that the inside was very dark, no windows and it made us feel 'sequestered' for jury duty.

I just spent a week in Annapolis and ate downtown almost every night. This was my best experience. I had crabcakes, which were delicious. Cocktails were good and service was fine. I liked the pub atmosphere. There were ten people in my party and everyone was pleased with their meal. I wish I had eaten here twice and skipped some... More
