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.

Atmosphere is casual. Waitstaff is very friendly, welcoming. We walked in and got a table right away, but it's reportedly very busy at time, but worth the wait. We had crab dishes as that's their specialty. Be sure to check out the upper room with many celebrity autographs, pictures. A must do for a trip to Annapolis. I'm gluten sensitive... More

Read the reviews and did not disappoint. We went there twice and had great food both times. The donuts are out of this world. The staff is incredible.

Had been wanting to try this place for several years and finally got the chance. It's small, loud, busy and you'll need to wait for a table, but what a fun place! Great food, wine and beer. Homemade pies, donuts and breads. This is the place to go for a crabcake, 1/2 pound, all meat! If you are up for... More

I ordered the crab cake because it was deemed "the best in Annapolis" and it was pretty good. The portions are huge so go hungry. And our favorite part was the 20-something different kinds of pie! We had pecan and key lime and they were both delish...we want to go back for the breakfast next. Our other favorite was the... More
