My husband and I could not wait to go to Chick & Ruth's while visiting Annapolis based on reviews and their website. We actually planned on eating at least one meal a day there during our visit.

On our first and only attempt we walked into the cramped restaurant and found one booth open. We took a seat and waited to be served about 5 minutes later a rather rude woman came up and told us that two people could not sit at a booth that sat 4 and that we would have to move to a small table for two. We did as we were asked because we still had high hopes for the food. We then waited @ 3 minutes longer for anyone to come take our order only to watch a group of 4 be sat in the booth where we originally sat - and they were then waited on in seconds. At that point we got up and left - and never bothered going back.

Can't rate the food - because no ever bothered to ask what I wanted. As for the service - well there was never any of that either. We did find several other spots along the road that had fine food and were actually eager to wait on customers.

Love this place--try to eat here every time we stop in down town Annapolis. Selections galore.

Love, love, love this place. A little expensive for the service and the food but a classic, iconic, legendary deli/diner that has been downtown before anyplace else. World's best milkshakes and free pickles! Bagels hang from the ceiling, Uncle Teddy does magic and you can say the plege of allegiance from the governor's booth every morning. It will be part of Annapolis' heart forever. Just learn real quick what to and not to order!

Can't miss it. Had a most fabulous meal of a crab omelet with a vanilla malt. Kept me full the whole day.
