This is where you want to go to get a sandwich when you're downtown. Order from a huge sandwich menu that includes something for everyone...then take your lunch to the city dock and enjoy the water.

This place is owned by some awesome folks. No matter how busy they are, they always find time to talk with each customer. Nearly every time I visit Annapolis, I stop by to pick up a sandwich or two. On my most recent trip (last Friday), I bought two sandwiches, one for my son and one for me). I ate... More

When we visited, the owner seemed to think I had the intelligence that God gave gravel (while that may be true, it is not what a business owner should convey to a customer). Due to it being my first and only visit I had difficulty deciphering their very busy wall menu, describing 40 - 50 deli sandwiches with their several... More

Big Cheese never disappoints. This family run business is conveniently located, just off the inner end of the Annapolis main harbor and close to the Naval,Academy and the Haley memorial. The sandwiches are always excellent...best bread, ingredients and fixings, freshly made. A great place to pick up a sandwich for lunch, then stroll over to the harbor area and the... More

Boy, have I missed French Baguette. The Big Cheese has excellent service and excellent sandwiches. I had the Brie & Prosciutto with dijon mustard. What a sandwich!

As I said in the title. She is a very angry cheese lady. NO QUESTION. If you can get past that. The sandwiches are REALLY good. I have to be in the mood to deal with her. When I am there I make sure I say just about nothing to the staff. Just point, grunt, and give them money. I... More

We got a sandwich and chips here to enjoy by the water. The sandwiches are varied, delicious and reasonable, so this is a great way to get an inexpensive lunch in a pricey area. Place was relatively crowded but we still got our sandwich in short order. Lots of midshipmen here gave us a clue that this would be good.
