The service was outstanding and Eric took great care of us throughout our dining experience. Food was very very good, everything from raw oysters to crab cakes to a fixed price four course special. A very nice dining experience.More

It does not look like much on the outside, but the service is great, the steak is why you go, and the wine list is the best in Annapolis outside of Winecellars.

There is street parking only available. I'm not sure if there are designated handicap spots or not. You may want to contact the restaurant for assistance.

I didn't take notice to be honest as we went to just have steak. I'm sure they have non meat items on the menu. I would not recommend their sides though as they were greasy and over cooked.
