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

The view of the Naval Academy is the best part of eating here. The drinks are way over priced and the meal even more so.

This place has views that can't be beat. The food is good--if you like crab! But everything in this area has crab.

We had a delicious meal. Some of the best crab cakes ever, great sushi grade tuna, wonderful surf and turf. Excellent unobtrusive service. On the Severn River with a nice view of Annapolis. Indoor or outdoor dining.

Get here once or twice a year. Very slow service. Food came lukewarm. Server not attentive. Crab cakes excellent though.

One of the best places to sit waterfront and enjoy Maryland seafood at its finest. There are no better Soft Shell Crabs to eat within 100 miles, if not farther. Cornmeal crusted over reduced onions (divine flavor also) & fresh local string beans. & you get 2. They almost as good as leftovers the next day. Thank you Severn Inn.... More

We went for a light dinner (more like hors d'ouvres) and sat outside on the deck. For a light dinner, it's great. However, for a regular dinner inside, it' just OK>

We have our regular happy hour spots, but decided to diverge and headed to the Severn Inn. We got there early, 4pm-ish, on a Friday and we were a little surprised they already weren't busier. It was one of those perfect high 70's day with the usual riverside breeze.....perfect weather. We ordered a bottle of rose and several appetizers and... More

Lovely setting, in the water. Other than that, our start was inauspicious. The lemon in my tea was mushy, and the waiter said they couldn't make substitutions. At least, they were willing to leave the feta off my salad. I thought my salmon was just too rare for me--when I offered it to my spouse, he said that part of... More
