Description: The Boatyard is where local sailors, fishermen and lovers of the Chesapeake enjoy pint drinks, great crab cakes and the freshest local seafood. Specialties include smoked fish of the day (on premise), cream of crab and Maryland crab soups and an extensive list of crab and seafood specialties. The First Lady came from the White House to enjoy our crab cakes. The Boatyard has the most extensive raw bar in the area including a variety of oysters, clams, shrimp and mussels. The Boatyard receives awards for being most family friendly and having the best burger on the Bay. Its weekend brunch is the best in the area. The Boatyard is located in the historic maritime district of Eastport-a short walk or water taxi from Annapolis City Docks. Its photo boat films the local sailing races and shows them nightly. Named by Coastal Living, Sailing World and Sail Magazine as one of world's top sailing/boating restaurants.

This is an active place with a locals and visitors alike. The food was solid and enjoyable but not outstanding. The crowd made it fun.

This place is becoming a MUST SEE and DO with each visit to Annapolis. Such fun, and if you like oysters and are game, they have great oyster shooters! Fun, fun, fun. Always hopping with lots of people.

When we got there the place was hopping, but we were able to get a seat outside. We both had the fish and chips. It was strange. The fish was nicely battered, fresh and hot but the fries were cold, and looked old like they had been sitting at room temp for ages. Really disappointing!!

Enjoyed the lobster roll and crab cake sandwiches but loved the Smith island pumpkin spice cake. The atmosphere was casual and relaxed. A nice place to come after a day on the water.

Visited this place on a Sunday morning with my son. Our meals were served, his an omelet and mine corned beef hash and eggs. His hash browns were stone cold, the omelet Luke warm and cheese not melted. The only thing warm on my plate was my two burned "over medium" eggs. While they did not charge us, I would... More

There is nothing special about this place. The food was OK, the service was OK, the atmosphere was OK. Be prepared for a kinda bland experience at a not so cheap price.

Love this place. Great food and great variety, both eat in and take out. Dining in can be a bit noisy, particularly in the larger part of the restaurant. Quieter tables are sometimes found in the back.

Comfort food for seafood lovers. No fancy preparation or plating, just super fresh and abundant seafood. Their crab cakes are among the best (tied with the Marion Cricket Club for best ever). No filler just killer crab. We shared a plate and were grateful as the two 6 oz. cakes would have been too much for us. Parking is tough... More
