Best pub atmosphere in Annapolis! Killer corned beef and cabbage, Reuben and cream of crab!! Right off of Main Street. Being a local, it's always a stop when going Downtown.

Castlebay is the kind of place you won't want to leave. The food is good and the Guinness is great but it's the people that make the difference. The bartenders know their craft and you'll get to know them quickly. Come a second time and...More
