Used to come here for years. New owners...waitresses clear tables by pushing food on the floor. Board of health needs to see and shut down.

This was recommended by friends who live in Annapolis. Fabulous restaurant with a mind blowing extensive menu. The entire menu is available all day & evening. We passed on the SIX POUND milk shake, yes, they’re known for it!

This place has been around forever. They are close to the harbor, inexpensive and widely praised by locals. You’ll run into some people like you (tourists), sailors, naval cadets, both rich and poor locals, and maybe even the governor.

Don't know for sure, but I highly doubt it. It is a very small place and walking between tables seems & feels crowded. Of course, you should call them to get a definitive answer.
