Anyplace you can order a double or triple pastrami sandwich on housemade bread must be great. So great that I had to take an extra pound home. Perfect place for a meat lover on Ketogenic diet. Unless you turn your head and see the 24 types of pies, yummy looking cookies and donuts. We also ordered the shrimp and crabcake... More

If you're craving a good filling meal after a night out in Annapolis or want to try a local eatery that's way different from the rest, then go here! They have the biggest menu I have ever seen! The place is super tiny, but that's the best part! The atmosphere is welcoming and there is a ton of memorabilia on... More

Like the title states, you would be foolish not to make a visit to Chick and Ruth's! We ALWAYS make at least one trip when we are in town to this outstanding establishment. The food is amazing, the service is great and the experience is memorable. What else could you want?

Let me start by saying the service was very good. Atmosphere and food were ok. We started with the crab dip, which was nothing special. I then ordered an open faced tuna melt and my husband had the crab cake/shrimp salad sandwich. My tuna melt was on a bagel, which was over-toasted to the point it was difficult to cut... More

Recommended as I walked in town as a good restaurant for Breakfast and that they were. You can tell when a restaurant is good when they are filled early in the morning but was able to secure a seat for two without a wait. I had the French Toast and it was very good, you get 6 slices of bread... More

This is one of my all time favorite delis. It's a little tight quarters, but have the best sandwiches and crab cakes. It's located in the center of Main Street with a beautiful view of the water

I wandered into this establishment for breakfast not knowing what to expect. Wow, it was fun throwback atmosphere to the diners of old. The staff was friendly and helpful. They kept my coffee hot and full. I had the egg platter which were perfectly prepared and an apple fritter. The history of the people who have been to this place... More

This small diner was packed full of people and that's because of how great the food is. They offer a wide variety of dishes and even have colossal food challenges (such as downing a 3 pound cheeseburger or meat sandwich, and a 6 pound milkshake) THAT'S RIGHT A 6 POUND MILKSHAKE. Also, fresh made donuts.
