Changed my mind five times before ordering. Lots of local dishes with a great deli like feel. Don't miss this place when you're in Nap-town.

Had breakfast twice on a recent visit. Homemade bread for toast. Service was fast, food was hot and cooked right. Very reasonable prices. It will be my go to restaurant on my next visit to Annapolis.

What a fun world I stepped into yesterday! A wonderful world full of food and nice people = happy place. I could easily have studied the extensive menu for an hour but our very helpful and informative server helped narrow things down in far less time. Although we currently live in Maryland I am not a huge fan of crab... More

Chick and Ruth's is an Annapolis treasure. It has been here for decades for a good reason. The food is delicious (and huge) and being from New York, the pastrami on rye and chocolate egg-creams are very authentic. I you go on a Sunday, get there early. Sometimes there are lines that run down the street with hungry patrons waiting... More

A diner that is entrenched in its history and legacy. It simply does not let go. There are always things to moan about, no-one is perfect. But for a diner experience, awesome food, banter, social delight - this place is not easily beat! Just go.

Good food, friendly service and the best donuts you've ever eaten. Usually a wait for breakfast in the weekends. Enjoy the donuts while you're waiting!

The service was impeccable. Funny, friendly, fast paced people that seemed to really enjoy their jobs. Restaurant was fun. Tight, diner feel. Seemed to be fresh food. Pies and pastries looked delicious. The family who had breakfast really liked their meal. The burger was pretty good, was not impressed with the fries. Large portions. Worth visiting for the atmosphere alone.... More

Very neat place if you like old time diners. The food was great. the servings large and the price reasonable. It was lined up out the door at lunch, so we just waited in a bar till late afternoon and then we got in without a wait. You do have to enjoy being right on top of the other people... More
