A favorite place to eat after Wednesday Night Racing. Food is always good and a great atmosphere - it looks like it's been there for a 100 years, but actually it's only been about 30. Only downside is that there are longish lines to get a table on summer evenings

When we arrived in Annapolis via boat, cleaned up and got out it was already past 10. Davis' was the only place open. It was a welcoming place to be after a long 4 day trip from Stamford Ct. I had the Tuna over a salad and was very happy. My girlfriend had the crapcake sandwich and my brother had... More

Went because of the great reviews with my husband a another couple. We all left very disappointed. Tried the pretzel with crab--it was primarily dough with lots of cream cheese and very little crab. Tried their crab soup--nothing to rave about. Tried their crab cakes--they were burnt and tasted like they were prepared on old oil. The fries (just normal... More

Our guide from Kayak Annapolis recommended we try this for lunch. The food was very good and moderately priced. I had the fish sandwich which was excellent.

Walk here when visiting friends in Eastport. The crab pretzel is a must. It's not fancy and mostly local hangout but it's wonderful. Packed on a fri night. I got steamed shrimp and crab balls to go. They were yummy

We came in on a Friday night, and while it was clear that we weren't regulars, we got the same prompt and welcoming service. We ate at the bar, and the food was awesome: tuna sandwich special and Reuben sandwich with crab balls as the starter. Definitely worth the walk from downtown slightly off the beaten path.

I have been going to Davis Pub since the late eighties and as always been consistently good. A terrific small local Hangout that has cold beer and good food. I have never failed to get into a good conversation with some of the locals who frequent this wonderful Pub.

We went here for lunch, an easy walk across the bridge from the central area and the docks. The crab cakes were so good that we returned the next night for dinner. Great ambience, full of locals, very friendly. Down home feel.
