My first time to order Shepherd's pie and it was delicious. The gravy was so good and the entire thing was delicious. It was hot out of the oven and oh so good. The fish and chips were excellent as well. I had a drink, The Irish Woo Woo, which was so good!!

I love Irish food and enjoy this restaurant. I now tend to go there for their Sunday brunch. They have the best Irish Breads and Butter -- as good as in Ireland.

Love Galway Bay, they have very good food and a really fun staff. The other patrons are also friendly and helpful. Their burgers are fantastic and their Shepard's Pie is one of the best that I have had in the States. I highly recommend it!

As a local, I have been to this restaurant many times in the past with ever getting a bad meal. Last Saturday was the exception. I ordered a Ruben sandwich, something I have done in the past but not lately. It arrived with the corned beef chopped into little cubes making it very difficult to eat. When picked up, the... More

We had a late dinner after arriving in Annapolis after our wedding reception. The owner of 201 bed and breakfast recommended this place to us. The food was awesome!

My daughter's fave place to eat when she comes in from out of town. The owners and staff are always kind and gracious (I have been a patron for 7 years). The food is very good. Nice atmosphere. I've also been here on trivia night, which was a lot of fun.

Very good Restaurant. Trying to make up my mind what to order. I decided on the Chicken Macaroni and Cheese. Very good with lots of creamy cheese and bread crumbs on top. Large serving. Couldn't finish it all.

I had lunch and the shepards pie was great. The place is a lot bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside.

Stopped in for a quick bite before heading to Colonial Players. We had one lamb stew and one crab cake sandwich. Always satisfied with the food and the prices. And the Bloody Mary was really good. Don't miss the chocolate cake with Guinness.
