I traveled to BWI very early on a Sunday morning and had a lot of the day to entertain myself. So I drove over to Annapolis and walked through the Naval Academy and down by the water. I stopped into this place for lunch and sat at the bar.
The grilled fish sandwich was very good; the slaw was average at best. The bartender, when he was engaged with you was very polite and nice. But for very long stretches of time he was preoccupied with family members (or regulars) who were also seated at the bar. So he was mostly interested in talking with them, and that resulted in me setting there probably 20-30 minutes longer than I needed to, while waiting to order, and then waiting to pay.
That said, I bet this place would be a blast with a bunch of people on a Saturday night or even at a happy hour during the week.
