A bit hard to find... but worth it. View of sailboats, the Naval Academy... tasty food. A bit $$$, but worth it. We will be back.

The Severn Inn is hidden in a mainly residential neighborhood. You will not stumble upon it, as you can with many other restaurants in Annapolis. But, if you take the time to head away from the bevy of restaurants along Ego Alley or the surrounding bay to the Severn Inn, you will be handsomely rewarded. The view of the water... More

We turned up for a weekday lunch without a reservation and were speedily given a table on the deck right by the water. There are 2 levels of deck and many people seemed to be enjoying lunch on a not-too-hot day. Our servers were excellent, drinks were brought and we were given time to study the menu. I had the...

Restaurant is on Severn River directly across from Naval Academy and has spectacular views of the Academy as well as the river. Good food and eat to have appetizers which are large portions vs main course meals. Main course meals are pricey so you are paying for the view as much as the food.

Great views from the Severn Inn, with comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. Menu is creative, with varied options. I had the crab dip - delicious and nice size portion. Lovely iced tea. Nice service!

We took family there for belated birthday. Views were fine. Service was adequate. Food quality was below average & prices were some of the highest in Annapolis area. In no rush to return.

I ordered the tile fish. The plantains were so over cooked they were like armor. The papousas were like corn cakes. The tile fish was cooked well. Crab cakes were mostly shredded crab. Needs improvement.

Stopped for lunch; excellent crab cake, served with fried green tomatoes and an excellent grilled corn salad. The water side of the restaurant is all large windows with makes the view excellent from any seat in the dining room.

Stopped for lunch without reservations on a Saturday. Parking lot was 85% full, restaurant at about 50% seated. Lovely location, we ate out on the deck at the river's edge. There wait staff served this area, mostly solo with customers, but with a little team overlap. They spent much of their time at the wait stand, looking at their phones... More

This is a beautifully situated restaurant with a wonderful view of the water and the Naval Academy. There is plenty of outdoor seating where the view is unimpeded. The problem was the food seemed like an afterthought or a lost leader to get customers to pay for the view. The bar is well stocked and the bartender was a wonderfully... More
