Davis' was recommended by someone so perhaps my expectations were too high. We We enjoyed the crab pretzel appetizer but crab cakes were just OK. Not very tasty as another reviewer noted. My husband enjoyed the habanero chipotle pork sandwich.

Worst crab-cake I have had in years. Less meat than a Florida-style cake. Almost no crab and the pan-searing basically just burns all the filler around a couple small shreds of crab claw. Dip tasted like warm cream-cheese, and only cream cheese. I can authoritatively say there was almost no crab in the dishes since I am allergic to shellfish... More

I used to go here after practice sailing or a regatta as our IMX 40 was docked across the street. Returned last Friday hopping off another boat after EYC's Friday night race. Unexpected gazpacho was nice n chunky like I like it and delicious, amd my Reuben was spot on as well. The crab pretzels are great too!

Had a late lunch over the weekend. Parking is a challenge, so you just need to find something on the street. While the some of the streets are 2-way traffic, only 1 car can fit. Seemed odd. We had 4 people in the group and all ordered a crab cake something (sandwich - $14 or platter - $18). They were... More

Very good seafood, including steamed shrimp, Maryland crab cakes, of course, Alaskan cod and more- with many items served as a main course or a sandwich, all tasty and well prepared. Lots of craft beers. More locals than tourists, and plenty of the boating crowd.

We had a party of 14. wait was 1-1/2hr...they sat us outside in 30 min. which was great considering how small the place is. Everyone enjoyed there meals. I had the chicken/sausage gumbo over rice. Done well. The pretzels w/ crab dip, melted cheese & bacon was crazy good. Others had the pulled pork, burgers, crab cakes, French dip, Reuben... More

...very welcoming staff and locals. Got stuck in Annapolis when the Chesapeake Bay Bridge was closed due to an accident. Stumbled across this bar and stayed for a few very welcome cold beers. Will go back for the crab pretzel's next time!

Fun atmosphere any time. Very good specials, great value. Crab pretzel is delicious. Fish sandwich is also always fresh. Very good beer selection on tap.

Saw this on food network decided to try it out. Food was ok. The service just OK. No a friendly warm feeling for outsiders. More of a neighborhood bar scene. They need to be more accommodating and friendly to strangers. Young man taking reservations for outside seating was very condescending. Not recommended will not go back. Go to the Boatyard... More
