I have visited Boatyard 3 times this summer, and have never been disappointed. The food, service, and atmosphere are all absolutely fantastic. I wanted to say a special word about their breakfast: YUM! Crab cake eggs Benedict, shrimp and grits, breakfast pizza, and they open...More

Lots of good choices. Fish Tacos were excellent. Fish and chips were also a good choice although it was served with fries and not chips. Can be an energetic noise level that makes hearing sometimes hard. Wonderful staff.

What a great experience! Excellent quality of food and certainly represents well the local fare. Service was excellent. The only negative was the parking and the wait to be seated, but I would definitely wait again. The crab cakes are outstanding!

Good bang for the buck. Parking can be a hassle so just park on the adjacent road. We like the crab cakes and they have a decent brunch.

Always a great time and great food! They offer daily specials and food is reasonably priced if not a special. I always enjoy going here when in Annapolis. It's where the locals go if that tells you anything!

The Boatyard is where local sailors, fishermen and lovers of the Chesapeake enjoy pint drinks, great crab cakes and the freshest local seafood. Specialties include smoked fish of the day (on premise), cream of crab and Maryland crab soups and an extensive list of crab and seafood specialties. The First Lady came from the White House to enjoy our crab cakes. The Boatyard has the most extensive raw bar in the area including a variety of oysters, clams, shrimp and mussels. The Boatyard receives awards for being most family friendly and having the best burger on the Bay. Its weekend brunch is the best in the area. The Boatyard is located in the historic maritime district of Eastport-a short walk or water taxi from Annapolis City Docks. Its photo boat films the local sailing races and shows them nightly. Named by Coastal Living, Sailing World and Sail Magazine as one of world's top sailing/boating restaurants.
