Chick & Ruth's never fails to amaze us. Where else can you go and pledge allegiance to the flag?.. For such a small restaurant they bang out the food to the masses who wait patiently for their epicurean delight. The menu covers breakfast, lunch and dinner and has something for everyone. The staff is always friendly and very attentive. Chick... More

Faced with a daunting array of eateries in this lovely city, we opted for something simple and different. This was the place. Okay, it's typical cramped diner style and lively, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Had no wait because of the mid-afternoon time - seated immediately. Menu variety is astonishing. Crab cake sandwich was the best my husband has ever... More

After visiting Chick and Ruth's for the 4th time, I noticed the total charged to my card was a little over $9 more than it should have been. I immediately called them and the head manager took all my info and said he would call me back as soon as his wife came in as she is the one who... More

We love Chick and Ruth's! Always a staple when we're in Annapolis! A friendly, eclectic eatery with the BEST crab cakes. Half a pound, all crab and all delicious! My son orders the breakfast omelet due to its generous servings.. I recommend trying my favorite soup- the Governor Hogan Bipartisan Crab Soup. It's half cream of crab soup and half... More

Nope, this may be an institution in Annapolis but it's not our style. First off you queue in the street to get in (we assumed the queue was because the restaurant was so good....) only when you finally gain entry, the space is long thin and very cramped. We had to sidle sideways into our booth setting, and then there... More

This is a very unique local sandwish shop/diner. Lots of character and lots of variety in food. One of the few places open late in Annapolis. If you like diner food, stop by!

Stopped in to this very busy eatery to get a box of muffins. Great taste, size, and reasonably priced. Staff is very friendly.

George from Urban Adventure Tours recommended Chick and Ruth's when asked where I could get the best crab cake in the Annapolis area. He was certainly correct! This is a small local restaurant with tables almost on top of each other because it is always crowded with a waiting line outside. Service was prompt and friendly. My husband had the... More

I read all the reviews about Chick and Ruth's and planned to check it out while in town for the Military Bowl. My wife said the crab cakes were the best she has every had. My son had a breakfast platter and I ended up going with Turkey and Ham Sandwich. The restaurant is not very spacious but we were... More
