We went based on recommendations here, as we were visiting the area. Place is crazy-looking from exterior, like a Vegas Diner on steroids. It's a little over-stimulating. It's narrow and there are a lot of seats but they're small tables and they're tightly in there....More

The wait at the door was too long and the service was slow. The food was great and in the end was worth the wait. However, 2 hours from when we put in our name to when we were eating was way too long. The...More

On a recent visit to Annapolis my wife and I got up early on Sunday to watch the sun rise. After biking around we were hungry a little after 6:00am. After a quick search this was one of the few options open early (6:30) so...More

Most people don't know that Annapolis, MD was the FIRST US capital and was changed in 1790 by the Residence Act. Annapolis is loaded with US history: John Paul Jones lived here and the US Naval Academy is within walking distance to Chick and Ruth's....More
