Food and ambience

Carrol’s Creek Café is Annapolis’ premier waterfront seafood restaurant. We sit on the Eastport side of Spa Creek with an amazing view of the Annapolis skyline from our dining room or outside deck, in season. Ample parking is available and is validated for 2.5 hours. No pets are allowed. OUR KITCHEN IS A CERTIFIED TREE NUT AND PEANUT FREE ENVIRONMENT. UNFORTUNATELY NO OUTSIDE FOOD, INCLUDING DESSERTS, MAY BE BROUGHT INTO THE RESTAURANT.
US$15 - US$50

Great service and some of the best seafood in Annapolis. Put this on your dinner or lunch schedule. It is worth the visit.

Enjoyed the experience. Waiter was excellent. Scallop appetizer was very very good. The tuna tartare was exceptional!! Rock fish was also exceptional.

Not impressed with this restaurant that was recommended by the Marriott Waterfront. Only redeeming quality is the view and that even stunk- literally my spouse was looking at the trash bins on the side of the building if he turned his head from the marina....Our first table was in a parking lot. The food and service was average. They ran out of oysters even though we’d already placed the order and the table next to us was served. The scallop appetizer was unique looking but not delicious and the crab soup could have been called flour soup. So thick and white with no lump crab anywhere to be found on any spoonful. It was really disappointing. I definitely recommend skipping this place and trying a different option unless the view is all your looking for.More

Not impressed. This was second visit, I remember the first being much more pleasurable. This time around, food was ok at best and over priced. Also, the service was not great. Looks like they get a lot of good reviews, but wanted to share my...experience that wasn’t 5-star worthy.More

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner here. The food was excellent (loved the Brie appetizer and the rockfish dinner!). The outdoor dining and views of the harbor were perfect.

I just had my daughter's bridal shower at Carrol's Creek and they did an amazing job. From the private waterfront room, friendly staff, outstanding food, and fabulous Carrol's Creek crushes, every detail was perfect. Big shout out to Taylor and Swan our wonderful servers...thanks for...making the day everything we hoped for!More

The place is in a nice location overlooking a marina. Service was good. The problem was the food. We had cioppino, clam chowder and baked oysters. Everything was tasteless. I would say the result would have been the same if the seafood had just come...out of a Campbell soup or some frozen, supermarket package.More

Love this spot overlooking a sailboat moorage. We had a wonderful lunch outside in the sun with our Midshipman. Great view over Spa Creek and across to the Yard.
