Dinner recommendation for new year's eve?

My husband and I made a last minute decision to go to Annapolis for new year's eve so are looking for recommendations for a restaurant for dinner (seafood or contemporary American). Not sure how hard it would be to get a reservation at that time so want to make sure we have one before getting there. We'll be staying at a downtown B&B so any recommendation for somewhere within walking distance would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

Specific recommendations unfortunately don't mean much now as most of the restaurants are booked. If you go to www.opentable.com and search under Annapolis, you will see some eateries pop up but for very limited times. Out of the ones with availability, you can try Rams Head. Nothing fancy here or out of the ordinary but they have a good selection and the atmosphere is decent.

Vin 909 is the best restaurant in town (some say the only good restaurant in town). But they don't take reservations. Get there 20-30 minutes before they open and stand in line is your best bet. It's not too far a walk from downtown.

There really are no good places to eat in downtown Annapolis...lots of very expensive places with so-so food that cater to tourists or the weekend bar crowd.

For Seafood:

O'leary's

Chart House

For Con American:

Level

Went to Level last year, and it was great, but may be tough getting tickets. Also for both seafood places you can walk to the City Dock then take a water taxi over if it's not too cold!

Also to add to the first post, don't always believe Open Table. If you find a place you like always call and double check. This has worked for me numerous times in the past... That being said, IT IS NYE!

Thanks all for the recommendations! We were able to get the last available reservation at O'Leary's on Opentable for 5:30 - quite early but worked out well to finish in time to see the 7:30 fireworks!
