Great Early Dinner

Sought this place out after seeing it featured on an episode of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives", and it totally lived up to our expectations. We made reservations because Annapolis was very busy with cadets returning to the Naval Academy, but the restaurant area stayed pretty quiet anyway (our... read more

We were ahead of the lunch hour rush and, as a result, got a comfortable booth. Our server was polite and pleasant. We got the Wexford Potato Cakes appetizer which was awesome. I ordered the Irish Reuben; my wife ordered... More

Anyone who loves the John Ford/John Wayne film THE QUIET MAN will adore Galway Bay. On a hot and humid afternoon, we stopped in for cold drinks during their Happy Hour on Thursday, August 20. This rating might be premature because we only had drinks and one appetizer, but we look forward to a full meal at GB. My GB... More

If you're looking for an authentic Irish pun feel this is the place to go. We walked in and were seated immediately by their very nice staff. Great selection of Irish inspired food and drink. Our food came out fast and tasted delicious. Great experience.

Galway Bay has good hearty food and great beer/ale choices in a traditional Irish pub atmosphere. Relaxed, comfortable and you never leave hungry! Great location, too!
