Back in time the Dock Street Bar was the Annapolis City Jail. No prisoners anymore though just happy fun- loving and food & drinks enjoying customers. All new menu in September and it’s a grand slam. Great bar - Great service and very reasonable prices.

Had lunch today. First time visiting. Had chicken tenders with curly fries. Very good all white meat tenders. Perfectly fried. Curly fries were crisp and delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. My diet coke was refilled without me asking. Enjoyable place with nice friendly atmosphere.

We come to Annapolis once a year for work and were looking for a good place for lunch, looked on your site,TA, and found this place! We started with some crab dip, DELICIOUS! Lumps of crab meat galore! My husband ordered one of CIp’s Specials-...the grilled steak sandwich and I ordered a crab cake sandwich! Let me just say this...I bit into the sandwich and lumps of crab meat came out the side! Now that is a crushin’ crab cake sandwich! The same thing happened to my husband with his steak sandwich! Outstanding! Thank you! We will be back!More

We stopped in because the reviews are good. They have a nice selection of beer but nothing on tap, bottles and cans only. It felt very rushed and there was no rush. We had burgers, the chili and the quesadilla. Overall it was not bad...they just could have been friendlier. We just felt like we were an inconvenience. A smile wouldn't hurt.More

Without fail I will visit Dock’s at least once when I’m in Annapolis on business to get the crab chowder. It’s a neat little place that is clean and has that friendly vibe. If you haven’t been at least once, go.

This is an unknown secret in Annapolis. Incredible crab cakes and everything else is fantastic too. Delicious food in s dive bar environment. Perfect combo! Only downside is no draft beer.

I would not suggest dock street for a group of 40. The Federal House or McGarveys would be able to handle a group of that size. Both of these places have a larger seating areas and the food, at both places, was very good... More
