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.

Relaxing and good meal

I went here with two friends on a Friday night. Arrived around 7:00 and there was a 25 minute wait. This restaurant, at least on a weekend night, is very loud. Go elsewhere if you are hoping for a quiet meal. My friend ordered French Onion soup and a chicken pot pie. He said his soup was... read more

When Marmaduke's was replaced by Ruth Chris Steakhouse and the ads on three by five cards for sailing berths by the internet, The Boatyard picked up the slack as the sailor's choice for food and drink. Some of best crab cakes in Annapolis and the best pours are available here. Really, all you need to know is that the best... More

We popped in for a quick lunch. Busy atmosphere with lots of energy in the room. Kittchy decor. The food was good not great. The service was slow but the waitress was so sweet that we didn't mind. I would go back but there are probably other places I would go first.

Love this unstuffy place for some decent oysters, bloody mary, and a relaxed meal.. Kind of loud when crowded though. Have been many times for brunch, lunch, and dinner...it's always been consistently good.

BB&G is warm and welcoming. One of Annapolis' favorite neighborhood spots, visitors will feel like they are among friends. The casual food is always good and the staff seems genuinely happy to be there. We had excellent chicken wings and phenomenal coconut shrimp. The bar area has a great vibe and the restaurant side is family-friendly. When in Annapolis, do... More

We started the meal with the crab and artichoke dip and not a morsel was left. The blue crab open face sandwich was outstanding, too. I actually saved half of my sandwich so I could enjoy the food two days in a row. Imagine my shock when I realized I left my to go container behind. I'm still angry at... More
