Recently my husband and I along with another couple traveled to Annapolis, Md. for a few days of relaxation. Our intent was to feast on seafood but to our surprise and delight, we stumbled upon Galway Bay. The staff was so nice and attentive to our every need. The food was outstanding!! My corned beef was fork tender, the best... More

We stumbled on Galway Bay while exploring Annapolis and were very pleased by what we found. A menu with something for everyone, a lineup of taps with traditional Irish favorites and a variety of other decent brews and just as important as everything else, friendly service. My only complaint is that I have had all the great things I found... More

The Irish music in the background welcomes you in and makes you want to stick around. This great little spot has an extensive menu of not only Irish favorites (think lamb stew and sheperd's pie), but some that will surely be new favorites like corned beef poppers and lamb sliders. Couple any of those with a pint of your favorite... More

There are so many restaurants next to the harbor in Annapolis , but there is no one similar to this one. It's 5 minutes walk from the harbor and its worth it! The place is authentic Irish, the food is great, the service was welcoming and fun and the beer was good. We enjoyed every minute.

Great comfort food and no one does it better. Fish & chips and corn beef poppers were great too. This is definite favorite- nice location too.

I love corn beef. I always order it when I dine here. It is slow-cooked for a long time and tastes heavenly. I also love Galway Bay. It is the quintessential Irish Pub, the distressed walls....located in the Heart of Annapolis In the Historic District on Maryland Ave. I'm lucky that I can walk here. The atmosphere is great, service... More

First you definitely need reservations on weekends, good food, prices are very reasonable and a good choice of Irish Beers and liquors and the staff is very nice, what more can you ask for..

We stopped here for lunch and boy were we glad we did! The restaurant is rather small and the seats are not the most comfortable but the food was wonderful. We had an Irish Ruben which contained the most tender and flavorful corned beef I have ever eaten and a crab cake sandwich which was as good as any I... More

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
