One of the best local places to eat, enjoy oysters and friends. It's actually in Eastport just over the bridge from Annapolis. One of our favorite places to go! Excellent Brunch and dinner.

I live in town and don’t think to come here much but every time I go, I enjoy it. They claim to have the best crab cake in town but after ordering theirs, I still vote Dockstreet as the best crab cake.

Sunday morning brunch at the Boatyard. “Hey, can we get crab cakes?” Of course! So it was a typical brunch menu for us - with crab cakes. They were excellent. 1000 was a great time to go. Not crowded and, of course, the food was...More

What a great biz lunch! Service was quick and friendly. We came here on a recommendation and was not disappointed. We shared the calamari app, it was a solid A. I had the seafood quesadilla, it was the best I've ever had. I"LL BE BACK!

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.
