“Great breakfast spot!!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We (my wife and I and our 19 year-old daughter) were in Annapolis for a weekend visit. Our Sunday morning breakfast was at Chick and Ruth's based on other tripadvisor reviews. We arrived at 9:00 and the place was packed. We didn't have to wait for a table but there didn't seem to be any other open tables when we were seated. The restaurant is very narrow and the tables are close together but this seems to add to the atmosphere. The service is very prompt and attentive and our waitress was very friendly.

My wife ordered the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict and she loved it! On the way out she picked up one of the to-go menus as she plans to order some of the crab cakes for home delivery. I ordered scrambled eggs, sausage, and home fries and it was delicious. My daughter ordered a chocolate chip waffle, and of course she loved it!

A nice surprise for us was at 9:30 when an announcement came over the speaker to ask everyone to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. This was very cool. Everyone participated and then cheered. I've never experienced that before in a restaurant. It is very unique and patriotic.

We were in and out of the restaurant in about 40 minutes. Although they were very busy we never felt rushed. The food was great and on the way out we picked up a few baked goods to take home. The prices are very reasonable.

The next time we are in Annapolis we will make it a point to get breakfast at Chick and Ruth's Delly. It is worth the trip.

“a must for a deli experieince”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

this place is a trip! The food is the real deal as far as deli food...sandwiches, cole slaw and fries that are timeless...the crab cakes are huge and have large lumps of crab throughout...it is a great experience to just go there and get crammed into a very small booth and have one of the waitresses who remind you of what a person who has been a waitress for many years at the same place is all about... the lines for breakfast are long and worth the wait.....eggs Benedict and the best pancakes ever....there is lots of food and good value so go hungry!

Went back to chick and Ruth's with friends after as long hiatus and the place was as great as ever. Had sandwiches and breakfast and all the food was fast and delicious. This is a town favorite and you have to go!

“never disappoints, forget the diet.”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We have been here every time we visit Annapolis and you will never starve. It's crowded, close, busy, and tight between the tables, with no-nonsense staff that make sure you get everything you wish, and more. Stay out of their way and enjoy a great meal any time, but we like breakfast the best.
