We all really enjoyed our visit here. Food was great with fresh seafood. It is crowded but worth the wait. Fun friendly service and good food.

Wouldnt go back... More

We came here on Presidents Day for an early dinner. A little surprising because they were known for their crabcakes and they have a reasonably priced Monday special.

Friendly, relaxing locals mix with visitors in a great sailing pub in Eastport. Surprisingly good food for a Pub with the crab cakes and the steamed shrimp being the best I've ever tasted. This place caters to families as well as those whose want to toss back a few at the bar.

A last minute stay in Annapolis brought us with a decision of where to eat dinner, noted good reviews online and our hotel receptionist also recommended here. I came for the crab cakes which did not disappoint, it had to be 99% crab and cooked to perfection. My hubby had the scallop special and commented it was good just not... More

I meet my friends here once a week to enjoy the Boatyard's Happy Hour! The atmosphere is fun and the happy hour prices are great! For a very reasonable price you get a variety of beers to choose from and the food is very tasty! I really like the cod sliders

We always enjoy the Boatyard. The food is good, we especially enjoy trying the daily specials. On this visit my husband had the fish sandwich special. The server suggested he get it blackened which he did and said it was one of the best if not the best fish sandwich that he has had -- bar none.

Description
The Boatyard is where local sailors, fishermen and lovers of the Chesapeake enjoy pint drinks, great crab cakes and the freshest local seafood. Specialties include smoked fish of the day (on premise), cream of crab and Maryland crab soups and an extensive list of crab and seafood specialties. The First Lady came from the White House to enjoy our crab cakes. The Boatyard has the most extensive raw bar in the area including a variety of oysters, clams, shrimp and mussels. The Boatyard receives awards for being most family friendly and having the best burger on the Bay. Its weekend brunch is the best in the area. The Boatyard is located in the historic maritime district of Eastport-a short walk or water taxi from Annapolis City Docks. Its photo boat films the local sailing races and shows them nightly. Named by Coastal Living, Sailing World and Sail Magazine as one of world's top sailing/boating restaurants.
