We have eaten here many times. Visited with out of town guests after a football game on 11/12/16. Gave our name to the hostess who said there were 6 or seven tables ahead of us so we ordered drinks at the bar. Over the next hour spoke with her twice asking about our table so she knew or should have... More

I would like to apologize that your visit on November 12, 2016 did not meet your expectations. Our staff takes great pride in the level of customer service they provide our guests. I believe that is what separates us from other establishments and makes Davis' the unique place it is. I have communicated with both your server and the manager... More

This is a fun place to eat or imbibe in a beverage. It was very crowded when we were there but it was also a boat show weekend. The menu is diverse and offers good choices. I had a Maryland style crab cake which was delicious. There is indoor and out door seating avaiable during warm weather. The service was... More

Loved, loved, loved the Crab Pretzel here! It was the BOMB. We met some local folks and they steered us to this place for some local fare and drinks. We liked it so much we stopped in both days we were there!

We were directed to this area Pub by a local., on our first day in Annapolis. This quickly became our "Go To" place. Food was well prepared and all the servers and bartenders we came into contact with were extremely friendly. The bartender here makes the best "Dark And Stormy" drinks my wife has ever had. Wish we had a... More

We went here for a late lunch on Saturday and had a great meal! I had the cream of crab soup and the crab dip pretzel with bacon. When in Maryland, eat crab! Both were delicious, but very rich. If I am ever back in the area I would definitely go back!

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.
