Where else can you go for a great diner breakfast and start out your day by saying the Pledge of Allegiance? That's what is done at Chick & Ruth's and I think it's a wonderful start to the day. As for the food - always...More

Yes, it's a tradition, and yes, it's in the middle of everything, right in the heart of downtown Annapolis. It's worth at least one experience there, and you have to determine whether it's your kind of thing or not. We've eaten there twice now, once...More

My crab cake on lettuce with tomato slices was the perfect lunch. A cheese steak sandwich with onion rings was my boyfriend's choice and he said it was delicious. He is ready to return for a slice of pie with ice cream.

We can't go to Annapolis and not stop here! We usually prefer to have breakfast at this charming little hole in the wall but they do serve all day long. This is the BEST crab cake!!!! We've had the sandwich and this time we had...More

This place is great and they make their own rye bread! I am somewhat addicted to it. At least once a week I need to get a ruben or other sandwich, or have some eggs with rye toast.

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.
