“Best food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Great atmosphere and great options for food. Reasonable prices for seafood and other options for those who do not like seafood. This was the best place we ate at while there!

“Inexperienced service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This super dog friendly spot took care of our 5 person party very effectively. We requested outdoor seating. The server however was below standard. He didn't even know what rye bread was! The grapefruit crush was mediocre and the shrimp salad was average.I do love that the hostess got our dog water and the fact that they had a dog menu. We got the dog a peanut butter tournover. She loved it!

“Great lunch spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We enjoyed a great lunch at the Federal House today. I enjoyed the Cuban sandwich and she enjoyed an amazing Rueben (which I should have ordered). The fries are deliciously crispy as they’re battered in flour and wheat before being fried. Amazing! The beer selection is fantastic but by lunchtime Saturday, as we discovered, most of it is consumed the night prior so there didn’t seem to be much (if any) of their better beers left (like the sought after seasonal brews). Nevertheless, our waiter was prompt and courteous and the food was served quickly. As we ate outside I can’t comment on the interior of the place but I’m comfortable recommending it based on our experience today.

“Our new favorite place in Annapolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

We ate there three times during the boat weeks. My husband loved the the Old Bay wings, asked for them extra crispy and was always pleased. I tried the crab dip, loved it. On our last visit, I requested a few changes to what was on the menu, no problem. They also offered a 15 % discount on a return visit during a very busy week. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.
