Food was great. Crabby Patty, Cream of Crab Soup and Quiche were the best. Our waiter was awesome. I will be recommending this place to everyone. I'm looking forward to my next trip to Annapolis for another wonderful dining experience.

Would not allow seating in the outdoor area for only drinks without ordering food. Not sure, but I think this was an establishment rule rather than a local law.More

if not readily available on street you can check the dock area. If none there, right on main st is the hillman parking garage, a 3 minute walk and most restaurants validate.
