Galway Bay has been an important part of the Annapolis restaurant and pub scene for years. It's two parts - very cool Irish pub on left and restaurant on right. The owners are Irish and they really did a great job making the whole place feel like you're in Ireland! My favorite time to visit is when they have street... More

This pub/restaurant feels authentically Irish. Whether you eat at the bar or the dining room you will have friendly service and very good food. Delicious shepherds pie and corned beef separate this restaurant from typical lunch places in Annapolis

Being a local, I can say that GB is definitely worth a visit. Love the bangers and mash, but that's just me.

My hubby and I stopped in for a drink and lunch. We sat at the bar. Enjoyed Irish Soda bread, Whiskey and Tomato Soup, plus the Murphy Pot Roast. I didn't want it to end! Gary and Shawn, who work there, chatted with us while we finished our drinks. I wish this pub was in my neighborhood. We would be... More

Great fish and chips, corned beef sandwich, and even cabbage sampler.. all delicious! My daughter had been to Ireland and our evening transported her back to the Galway Bay, even.the decor added a touch special too. Our server was fantastic. Will definitely return and bring our friends and family.

After a long absence, I recently had lunch with friends at Galway Bay, I can usually count on getting a nice fresh salad with fish or chicken. This time, I ordered the spinach salad with salmon and was greatly disappointed. The salmon pieces were severely overcooked and therefore dried out...and tasted fishy. The cucumber slices were translucent and inedible. Except... More

Galway Bay is always west of Dublin and this one is no exception. VERY west of Dublin it has the charm and distinctive atmosphere of a pub in Ireland. The food is as good and in at least one case better than I've had in Ireland. The MUST TRY is the Corned Beef Poppers!! OH MY! I could make a... More

This is an Irish restaurant and bar. Apparently the owners have several other similar restaurants in the area. Good Guinness and Smitty's on draft. Not pub food -- rather high quality choices. My friend did rave about the lamb stew

Enjoyed our drinks and met some very nice people. The staff was friendly and helped with beer choices. The pub was decorated well. My husband was looking to watch a football game and there was no tv so we didn't stay long. Would visit again.

Thank Mrssdon
