I have been here many many times over the last 25 years. Sometimes good sometimes not so good. I have been in here when the clientele were all young professionals , and I have been in here when it looked like they just emptied out a Mexican prison. I still continue to go, it's a nice place right on the... More

We came here for lunch as it seemed like a place where everyone could find something they wanted to eat. My husband was pleasantly surprised to find that their large size beer on tap was only $5! The smaller size was $6 so this must have been some kind of special. Not sure how big it was but we figured... More

I prefer Armadillo's to all the other harbor restaurants. It's not as historic, although it's been around a full generation to withstand the test of time. You can enjoy the shops and boats best from here, too. The food and service are always good.

We have been coming here for lunch every year for about 20 years when we go to the Boat Show. Can easily slip out the gate and grab a quick lunch. Have always enjoyed our food. Saw another reviewer comment on getting sick from undercooked burger eaten here. I personally like rare burgers and have ordered here on many occasions.... More

I had asked which was the best crab cake in town, I was on a mission, my kids wanted ice cream and they went to the oldest place in town which was right next door. I decided if I was going to have something with serious calories I would rather not have ice cream but my first Maryland crab cake.... More

Armadillo's is the perfect place for meeting friends for dinner or just cocktails. The staff are extremely friendly and the foot is excellent.

We ate outside for a late lunch with our dog. Wonderful service and had good food...an apple chicken sandwich and a burger. I asked for a well done burger (just safer) and after eating half, noticed it was rare to medium rare. Whoops. Tasted good so ate it...very hungry at that point. Forward to 1 am...very sick stomach...burger was only... More

This is more of a drinking spot and can get interesting on weekend and summer nights. The bathrooms are really bad so you need to be drinking to handle them! Stop here before you head to McGarvey's after 9 pm.
