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

We did a tour of the Naval Academy and then walked the 2.5 blocks from where the tour ended to Galways. We arrived at noon and it was very quiet but filled up around 1:00. We chose to eat in the bar side as we loved the bar itself ( brought from Ireland). We were greeted by the gentleman from... More

We were pointed towards Galway's by the barista at Starbucks. We loved the authentic Irish fare! Our table shared the corned beef poppers. I had Miss Peggy's crab cake sandwich, sampled the fish and chips. Both were delicious. My husband had the Ruben sandwich. The service was excellent! We also came here on Guy's suggestion from DDD.

We went to try the food with family. My brother mentioned this restaurant pub was a nice choice. We where happy to find they were serving at 8:30 PM since "Treaty Of Paris" restaurant stopped serving right before we got there, guess we missed some detail somewhere. That restaurant aside, we are very happy to tell you, he was right.... More
