We had never been to the area but were in town for the boat show. We went to another place but the line was too long. Our friends had been to Chick and Ruth's Delly and said the line moves fast. It did indeed. We had a wonderful breakfast and mimosas. The crab cake Benedict was a hit at our... More

Visited for lunch during the boat show, not too crowded, and greeted by the owner with a recommendation of a "better table" .this is a seasoned place that shows it has been serving visitors and regulars for a very long time. The menu is extensive and the food is very satisfying. Went for the crab cake Benedict, and a fried... More

Be prepared to eat and then eat some more. This is a unique diner dining experience. It is almost always packed full and often the owners are working the weekend shifts. Diners pack into small booths as servers hustle by with pates full to the brim. The atmosphere is cheerful and the food is classic diner faire with plenty of... More

So this isn't just about their crabcakes, but if you have friends or relatives in town or are visiting and have already decided you'd like crabcakes while you're in Maryland, I'd HIGHLY suggest Chick & Ruth's. My husband and I have visited and ordered from most establishments in Anne Arundel County who are well known for their crab cakes. We... More

Crowded, busy, New York style deli restaurant with as many choices and really great food. Went for breakfast and loved their potatoes made with grilled onions. My husband loved the corned beef hash, it was a huge portion-he couldn't finish it. Sat at the small counter and watched delicious food being cooked- chocolate chip pancakes, crab cakes, meatball parm sandwhiches,... More

I ate the Cheeseburger - 2/3 Pounder and I will full. Very delicious. Am glad I did not order the fries as there was no room left in my stomach. The cheeseburger was very good and also came with home made bread that was delicious. Other plates looked very good as well.

The proprietors have the morning patrons participate in the pledge of allegiance before breakfast. It is a tradition that they continue to uphold. If you visit during mid-day, be prepared to wait for a seat. They are always busy! The wait staff is very friendly. Everything on the menu is amazing!

This restaurant is down the main street from City Dock in Annapolis. Breakfast was good even though the place was very busy because of the boat show. The waitress was very kind and sweet. We will definitely return. One note: the booths in front are tiny. There are normal size tables in the back.
