If you're out to find the best reuben sandwich in the Annapolis area, stop right here. It is a slow-cooked, stick-to-your-ribs kind of sandwich that melts in your mouth. Top it off with a tall Guiness and you're done for the night. Whether seated in the pub area or in the restaurant, the atmosphere is fun, not too loud, and... More

Galway Bay is a great off-the-main-drag location in Downtown Annapolis serving Irish drinks and cuisine. I go there with my co-workers for happy hour (3:00-6:30) during which they have about 10 offerings, each for $5. You have all the popular drinks on tap like Guiness, Harp, Magner's, etc. which are always tasty, but the prices could be a bit more... More

My wife and I started with the clam chowder which we greatly enjoyed. I ordered the seafood grill for my meal and the food was fine: not great and not bad. The service was very good.

We stopped on our way to the game for a bloody mary and screwdriver. The owner was there helping everything run smooth. After the game we stopped back and although it was a different shift the owner was still there. He was very cordial. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and one of them we didn't like and they immediately... More

We ate here just the other night based off the reviews I read. My wife's madden name is McNally, so we had to give it a try. Let me say the reviews were not wrong at all. The food was great, authentic and very reasonably priced. The service was friendly, attentive and quick. The craft beers are wonderful and the... More

Great Irish pub in downtown Annapolis on Maryland Ave. parking is a pain but worth the hunt. He runs sliders and spring roll app where great start along with pint of Guinness followed by a pint of ying ling! Always filled with Naval Academy Mids grubbing on great burgers!

This Pub on Maryland Ave. in downtown Annapolis near the Capitol was recommended to us by someone sitting next to us when we were at another pub..."where the locals go." Went for lunch and sat at the bar. Lots of beer selections, but I had a nice glass of Chardonnay. My husband tried a few of the craft beers. The... More

Shared a delicious dinner here....corned beef and cabbage and a Ruben sandwich, on a great gluten free roll! Drinks were great as well! Well priced and great service! We especially loved the delicious egg nog samples! Highly recommend.

This is a very nice restaurant that is both upscale yet casual. Located in an older historic building in downtown Annapolis, it features USNA memorabilia on the walls. It has an extensive menu with some unique things including boxty and potato pancakes and an appetizer. I enjoyed a crab cake sandwich that was all crab meat with little to no... More
