No serious complaints. Shepards pie was a bit of a let down. Fish n chips were good. Bread pudding was very good bit overall my expectations were not met. Ill give it another shot and try some other menu items next time and hope I change my mind. Cool atmosphere and kind staff.

The service can be a bit shoddy depending on your server, but the food has always been good. We have had brunch here once when iron rooster was too busy and it was surprisingly good as well. Iron rooster is better, but a great fall back.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Galway Bay. The service was excellent and the food was top notch. Our waiter Richie was so friendly and made us feel like we were back in Ireland. A must place to visit if you are in Annaoplis.

Our first visit and won't be our last. Authentic Irish cuisine, with Irish beers and whiskeys, a variety of Irish and American menu items, well decorated and the service was top notch. We enjoyed corned-beef poppers for an appetizer, fish and chips and a mixed Irish grill for dinner. Within a short walk of the state capital buildings and inns.

Delicious seafood in an historic charmed building! Started with the soup of day, kinda like a gumbo soup with crawfish, which had a little kick, very nice. Entree was a crab cake with 6 single fried oysters, homemade cole slaw and French Fries. Very good and affordable. Quality service even on a busy evening. Worth the visit!

When there is a chill in the air, I love to hit Galway Bay for a Shepards pie and Guinness. A great cozy bar in historic Annapolis.

Friendly, but poor services. Food was okay. Beer good. I would skip dinner and go for drinks and appetizers next time. This is a very popular place, but I've been to better Irish restaurants.

We went in on New Years Eve with a party of 6 and two small children. Everything was perfect. Food-Outstanding, Ambience spectacular, but our server, ABSOLUTELY PHENOMINAL!! I love Irish restaurants during my travels for work, and Galway Bay is the absolute best.
