Absolute best crab cake I have ever had. Says they will charge you to have a sharing plate, but they don’t charge. No more liquor license, even though on the menu.

This was recommended by friends who live in Annapolis. Fabulous restaurant with a mind blowing extensive menu. The entire menu is available all day & evening. We passed on the SIX POUND milk shake, yes, they’re known for it!

This place has been around forever. They are close to the harbor, inexpensive and widely praised by locals. You’ll run into some people like you (tourists), sailors, naval cadets, both rich and poor locals, and maybe even the governor.

This is a must visit when in Annapolis. Looking at the menu is great. The sandwiches are named after various elected officials and Iconic Marylanders. Food is great and prices are very reasonable. A place full of history!

Don't know for sure, but I highly doubt it. It is a very small place and walking between tables seems & feels crowded. Of course, you should call them to get a definitive answer.
