“Great wings and crab soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Great location and the food is always good. The price is also right. The happy hour prices are reasonable 4 - 7 M- F. They also offer a great variety of beer and you can get food after midnight. In the summer you can sit outside but tables are very limited (like 2 or 3) Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the area.

“Local Pub with Great Oysters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

On a Wednesday night, this sure seemed like a local joint. $6.00 oysters, happy hour drinks and lots of energy and lots of locals. The bartender seemed to know everyone at the bar. So, stop in at Happy Hour and enjoy.

“Average food and somewhat dirty behind the scenes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

We stopped in here in a wet day in Annapolis for lunch - we chose this place because it was busy which we took as a good sign. The food was OK, but nothing special - we had fish and chips, burger and soup. It was disappointing that they didn't have chowder.

We would not go back due to cleanliness - we used the bathrooms which were located up a smelly staircase... It was revolting and if that reflects the standards back of house, then we were very put off...

Stopped in for some oysters and clams while enjoying a glass of wine. Sat at the bar, enjoyed great service from the bartender. Saloon atmosphere.
