It is a busy place, but it was entertaining to watch all the bustle. The staff is attentive and friendly - and the crab cakes are DELICIOUS!!!!

This is a place where both locals and visitors can get a good, diner-style meal fresh and fast. Their menu is vast and features tons of sandwiches, seafood, pizza, burgers, salads, and local specialties. And be sure to leave room for dessert. It's crazy small and always packed, but it's an Annapolis experience you'll love!

delicious and tasty crab cakes, great atmosphere and humongous portions of speciality sandwiches. Do not miss the Reubens or the 3 pounds burgers

Chick & Ruth's Delly does an amazing job of delivering good food fast to locals and tourists alike. It's small and seems to have almost as many wait staff as guests, but the result is they turn the tables fast. Lots of good food for reasonable prices and it's entertaining to watch the ballet of wait staff avoiding collisions with... More

Get the Lump Crabcake Eggs Benedict; delicious! The seating is in close quarters, and you may have to wait, but you will never have better crab cakes (get some to go too)!

Having one of those cheese omelette and vanilla milkshake mornings? This is your place. The milkshake is made with milk and ice cream and comes with the extra in the metal cup - YUM. Everything there is delicious. Breakfast, lunch, dinner - try it all. Take in the local flavor - it is one of our city favorites. Try one... More

Lots of history but the food was a bit pricey for what you get. But it was fun to eat there. Fries and sides are extra. Reuben was not that great. Shrimp club looked good. Fun to sit at window and watch Main Street.

This Deli is in down town Annapolis and it is always packed with people. The menu has something for everyone. The fried potatoes are great. Coffee is excellent. Be prepared to wait in line but it's well worth the wait.

The restaurant is ridiculously small and a little off putting when your first walk in but trust me, the food is worth it! Everything from the free pickles to the witty waitstaff made this diner great. The Reuben was delicious and the rye bread was so good I bought a loaf to take home.
