We were looking for a place for breakfast for 12 people. My daughter reached out to Evelyn's and they were very responsive and helpful. We were able to sit outside at the large picnic tables, which made all of the guests comfortable. The selection of...food was impressive and all our guests were impressed with the food. I will absolutely be sure to visit again the next time I am in Annapolis.More

Solo breakfast visit. Plenty of convenient and free parking. Quiet location. Ample food choices. Service was efficient. I had Weems Creek Omelette, which was with crab meat and topped with cheese. Home fries accompanied the dish. Both were good and filling. I will return to...sample other selections.More

We didn't feel like battling the downtown Annapolis traffic or having to hunt for parking, so we drove through west Annapolis and stumbled on to Evelyn's. There is plenty of off-street parking and the restaurant was very roomie/comfortable. They serve breakfast and lunch all day...long - they're only open 7am to 3pm. The menu is eclectic and extensive - lots of interesting takes on traditional favorites. I have the Reuben sandwich with sweet potato fries. Great choice - the meat was pretty lean and the portion size was perfect (I don't ridiculously overstuffed deli sandwiches). The fries were perfectly cooked and were nice and hot. My wife had the Tuna Nicoise Salad. The tuna was perfectly cooked and all of the ingredients were spot on except for the green beans. The green beans were mushy and I think were just dumped from a can. Pickling or parboiling green beans is so easy and would have added a nice freshness to this dish. The green beans didn't ruing the salad, but they did get pushed to the side. Service was pretty good, but not amazing. Two other hits: 1. One of the specials was a Crab Cake Melt - open faced crab cake sandwich with a piece of melted cheese and a tomato on top. Why would you put a piece of cheese on top of a crab cake? Cheese would over power that crab taste if the crab cake is decent. 2. One of the servers was "sagging" - his pants were sagging below his bum and every time he raise his arms or bent over you got a full view of his grey boxer/briefs. He bent over twice with his bum about three feet away from my face. A manager should have either had him pull his pants up or have sent him home.More

My wife and I dine at Evelyn's frequently. Food has always been good. Breakfast available at all times. Restaurant closes at 3pm. It's a small place so at times you will have to wait for a table. The owner is very responsive to feedback. I...asked why they didn't have fresh ground pepper, I stated food this good deserve better than pre ground pepper, he agreed and the next time I stopped in for lunch, there was fresh pepperMore

First time to Evelyn’s pretty basic sat outside with company they were the one that actually recommended this restaurant. Ordered breakfast food it seemed to take a hot minute to get the food but the company I was with has a tendency to be a...little maintenance meaning taking forever to order the food but it didn’t come out correctly the service definitely not over the top maybe because when you’re sitting outside it’s more trouble to come outside and the ducks were a handful that day for the servers trying to to shoo them away. Bathroom was clean and server was attentive but she could have acted a little more pleasant but maybe she wasn’t feeling us . I left a35% tip and didn’t seem to matter to her by not saying thank you but she was young and maybe just not accustomed to how to express herself for getting more money than what she was worth especially for the service she provided!!! We could’ve went to Dennys but we were closer to Evelyn’s!!!More

The major advantage the restaurant has is the ability to sit outside. However, the chairs are cheap and very uncomfortable. Money is not being put back into the restaurant. I food and service was less than stellar. I had breakfast in which the eggs were...lacy and hard, the scrapple was sliced so thin and too crispy. The grits were tasteless. I had to ask for everything, i.e. silverware, jam, butter, water, etc. I doubt I will go back.More

We went for breakfast, and will not return. The crust less quiche was a rectangular piece of milky eggs with a few vegetables near the top, and a layer of cheddar cheese. Someone needs lessons on making a quiche! I had chosen fruit as my...side, and it was fresh and tasty. Husbands omelet was decently filled, and he ordered rye toast which cost extra. We both had coffee. Our bill for breakfast was $34.More

We found Evelyn’s on Monday and had lunch outside. It was easy to park in a town where parking can be a hassle. West Annapolis is quaint w a few locally owned restaurants to serve the local folks who don’t want to deal with tourists...in the historic downtown area. Evelyn’s is a farm to table locally grown eatery that has a nice selection. We had wonderful fresh salads with ahi tuna and salmon that were not overpriced. We appreciated the nice vibe they have going there and their vegetable sculptures out front.More

My family of five had lunch here after touring the Naval Academy. Reasonable prices and great service. When we first walked up I was concerned it might not be kid friendly (it is a lovely spot to have lunch with your girl friends), however I...was very wrong. For $5 my children got a large meal with a drink. It was enough to fill up my 9 year old who usually asks for more. The server was kind and patient with my children. They even have books and toys to entertain little ones. Plus a step stool in the bathroom. I had a delicious tuna salad sandwich for $8 and bottomless iced coffee that was only $2! So many choices on the menu that sounded wonderful. Most farm to table restaurants are not that affordable. I was very happy to have discovered Evelyn’s.More
