Great for lunch, happy hour, or neighborhood evening with the locals. Street parking is usually manageable.

Right down by the boat Davis Pub is an old favorite. Good bar food and great drinks. My granddaughter likes the crab pretzels. Go here for friendly folks, a great sailing flair, and just a good neighborhood pub.

Great service and excellent food! Worth the wait for a table. Super dinner specials (cajun mahi sandwich was awesome)

So we happened by Davis' only because the Boat Yard had a 2-hour wait (and was so hot and claustrophobic at the bar you could barely breathe - so we couldn't hang there until a table became available). So from the parking lot, we "Trip-Advisored" other nearby casual locations and up popped Davis'. I had read a bit about it... More

Great for an after sailing hangout. Parking is hard on the streets but you can park on Chesapeake and walk over.

Last time, we sat outside on a beautiful sunny day. I had the steamed shrimp and my wife had the crab cake sandwich. I usually get the shrimp and she tries different items. Never disappointed.

Go with friends, or make new friends there. The friendliest place in Annapolis. Not pretentious, but not slack. Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere. Outdoor dining in good weather. Brunch, lunch.

We have eaten here many times. Visited with out of town guests after a football game on 11/12/16. Gave our name to the hostess who said there were 6 or seven tables ahead of us so we ordered drinks at the bar. Over the next hour spoke with her twice asking about our table so she knew or should have... More

Crab cakes, full of crab, light on filler, heavy on... More

This is a fun place to eat or imbibe in a beverage. It was very crowded when we were there but it was also a boat show weekend. The menu is diverse and offers good choices. I had a Maryland style crab cake which was delicious. There is indoor and out door seating avaiable during warm weather. The service was... More
