This place is an institution that should definitely be experienced on a visit to Annapolis. My recommendation would be breakfast. There is an extensive menu with many good choices. It will be fun and tasty but not fancy

Don't know how this became so popular, but it is a good deli/diner with loads of local folklore. Food is good.

We have been here for breakfasts and lunch. Great corn beef hash and hard to choose the sandwich you want the most!

Went to visit a friend who lives near Annapolis. She suggested we try Chick and Ruth's which I had walked by before but never been inside. The bright yellow and orange walls made the smallish restaurant stand out. The old timer style dinner had oodles of charm. A large wait staff for a small place stood out. As did the... More

Traveling from South Carolina north to New Jersey we decided to avoid the interstates. Our travels took us through Annapolis with a quick stop for eats for dinner. This place is more than an eatery....it is a landmark. The food was great and we were greated by friendly staff. We will be back!

Great NY style deli on the main drag in Annapolis. Full of returning customers and wait staff that is a combination of crusty and kind. All day breakfast with home fries that surpass expectations. Seating is tight, tho that encourages conversation. Great sandwiches with meats piled forbiddingly high. Why did we miss visiting here on our many previous outings in... More

Very good food at a reasonable price. Lots of cool pictures on the wall including Adam Richman's visit. Crab Cake is awesome, one of the best I have had if not the best. Place is also quite historic, been there since the 60's at least.

Have been to Chick and Ruth's many times over the past 20 years. If you are looking for fine dining with white table cloths look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a great, quick breakfast or lunch in one of the most quirky, popular places in Annapolis, this is the place. All the local politicians eat here when the... More

My Husband and I visited for a late lunch on a Saturday. Even though we were not at prime meal time the place was packed as usual. With hardly enough room to turn around the servers scurried about quickly and efficiently as they served the mile high stacked sandwiches - Hot Pastrami and Corned Beef a house favorite! We enjoyed... More

We ordered the 8oz jumbo lump crab cake - all crab meat no fillers - and fries. Very satisfying meal and friendly staff. We saved room for a slice of one their famous pies went with the apple. It was so tasty that we ended up ordering a whole one to take home.
