This place is iconic and once you step inside, you'll understand why. The sandwiches are huge and amazing, but they come at a steep price. Also, they don't allow you to split or share a sandwich if you are eating inside the restaurant. That was strange. Go once so you can check it off your bucket list

This has been a favorite place for years. A wee bit out /off the main stream as far as restaurants go but if you want to step back a couple decades this is the place. Small old style diner with cramped booths but all in the feeling. Food is always good with corn beef hash a must

I was skeptical about 'crab omeletts' but it was dog-gone good! The service in this 'greasy spoon diner' was impeccable both times I was there (breakfast in a group, supper with a colleague). Of note: each morning at 8:30, they have everyone stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance--so, SO cool!!

Stopped on for a late lunch. It's very cramped but that's part of the fun. The staff knows the regulars by name. Enjoyed delicious corned beef on homemade Rye & the best pickles we've ever had! Crab cake (a whopping 1/2 lb of back fin lump crabmeat was delicious. Had light filler, could have been cooked a bit longer but... More

If you haven't visted Chick and Ruth's Delly, this is a must stop and eat place. Their breakfast is out of this world. They make their bread in house. One of their best items is their chicken and waffles. Go hungry though, it's huge.

A institution in Annapolis! Stop for breakfast, lunch, quick dinner..anytime! Soak up the local legislative vibe and funky interior. Food is good, simple, ample and reasonable.

My first deli experience in the US. A very crowded and busy place with an authentic feel to it, popular with tourists and locals alike. Staff ere very friendly and attentive despite being so busy. My crab and prawn club sandwich was full of both seafoods and was nicely seasoned and made. Tight fit in the booths made it necessary... More

We ate here for breakfast. I had crab cakes benedict which was a really good amount of crab that I couldn't eat it all. I'm from the South so the crab cakes weren't what I was use to - good but different. My husband had a Spanish omelet which was also very large and good. The staff was very friendly... More
