We stopped at the Dock Street Bar and Grill in Annapolis for lunch after a harbor cruise. We loved the stone walls and intimate, casual atmosphere. I had the grilled tuna salad washed down with an ice cold Flying Dog IPA. The tuna was seared to perfection and served on a very generous bed of fresh, clean, baby spinach. My... More

I asked the locals where I should go for good crab cakes and was told Dock Street. They were right...the crab cakes are delicious. Staff is friendly and the place is full of locals. Nice bar. Not a meat market and the the patrons are just having clean fun.

Delightful little place right on Dock St with very yummy cream of crab (with corn bits) chowder that wasn't overly rich but certainly creamy...also a really good size crabmeat sandwich on roll with coleslaw and fries.

Quaint Annapolis pub right on the docks. Yummy fish and fries, crab cakes and onion soup. Superb service. We will come back.

Came in on a Saturday afternoon looking to grab lunch and watch college football - for some reason every TV in the place had on the exact same game (no, it wasn't involving any teams associated with Maryland) and our waitress gave us the distinct impression that she was trying to get us to eat and leave so she could...

After doing touristy stuff in Annapolis, I was looking for a good burger and got it here. The food was good. It was a Wednesday afternoon on a beautiful mid September day and there were very few people in the bar at almost 5PM. My burger was good, and the other two plates pictured were fish and chips and crab... More

Go here for crab cakes and if it nice weather, sit outside and people watch while you eat your giant mound of crab. This is a bar and can be loud.

Cool place to hang during the daylight hours but after 10:00 it turns into a super crowded nightclub. It was recommended for crab cakes, but with bouncers blocking the door, it was hard to get a take out order in this very pint-size venue on the main avenue.

I visited here with family for lunch. We all had the crab cake sandwiches. They were wonderful. Maryland crab has such a sweet taste that us like no other. Great spot to come inside have a beer and cool off. Service was very good. Will visit again next time I'm in town.
