Cute hideawayHarry Browne's is a downtown Annapolis classic. Tucked away from the classic "docks" area on State Circle is this cute / romantic restaurant with great food and an adventurous wine list that you can enjoy with a business associate or a significant other. Not overly romantic to hamper a business only dinner, but with the right person at your side, easily romantic with its lighting, intimate tables and classic design.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchThroughout the years of our son's attendance at St. John's College our family has had many occasions to eat at Harry Browne's. Whether it has been Easter brunch,lunch, or dinner with two or nine persons, the food, service, and atmosphere has always been excellent.Our most recent visit was for our son's graduation celebration; there were nine of us, and we were pleasantly seated in a raised alcove that was both open to the room, and private at the same time. A good time had by all! The only potential inconvenience: the special brunches are set upstairs; for the less able this may be a problem. Our younger guest made the trip back up to pick up desserts for their grandparents. Harry Browne's has been our favorite restaurant in Annapolis !!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHarry Browne's - An Annapolis Must!The quaintness of the circle around the old state capitol house, shady, stately trees, cobble and brick streets, tiny shops with attractive merchandise, and then,the Naval Academy just down the street so you also have the smells of the Chesapeake, the small tables with white linen cloths set on the sidewalk and the scent of good food, all these set the stage for what would have to be a delightful dining experience, and Harry Browne's does not disappoint! A recent lunch there - with a delectable fried chicken salad, a cobblestone salad with ham, turkey and bleu cheese, and a special grilled ham and cheese sandwich - what could go wrong? The spring day and the ambiance were matched by Harry Browne's chef and staff. Take me back - NOW!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe stopped off in AnnapolisWe stopped off in Annapolis for lunch en route to DC. This little restaurant was a delight. We were a little anxious when we saw the linen table cloths that we were going to pay a lot more than we wanted for a lunch. But that was not the case. the prices were very moderate. The food was excellent and the service was too. Our waitress was attentive and seemed to enjoy the banter one of the party engaged in. Definitely a great find and we will certainly return the next time we find ourselves in Annapolis. The central location was an added benefit.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHarry Browne's worth the $$$$I took a group of 6 and struggled to get reservations. The restaurant is small, sitting around 10 tables downstairs. The food and wine were excellent. This is why it was hard to find times for the reservations. It was well worth the trouble.
I would suggest getting an appetizer because the portions were smaller than many places. I ordered the pan seared scallop and shrimp, it came with 3 scallops and 3 shrimp on a polenta brick. My calamari appertizer was done perfectly and I don't think I've had better. The bill was around $350 for 6 with drinks.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHarry Browne's is a dinnerHarry Browne's is a dinner out mainstay for us. We particularly enjoy the Sunday Brunch. It's a very comfortable setting with a nice mix of buffet and menu items available. Hard to choose between the Classic Eggs Benedict and the Omelet Bar .... but we enjoyed both between us.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch menu and selection veryLunch menu and selection very nice. The service was excellent and would definitely go again.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe quiet atmosphere was greatThe quiet atmosphere was great for a lovely dinner and conversation. Upstairs in the bar area another group of people were enjoying a more boisterous evening. A place for everyone at Harry Browne's!
The wine list is extensive and someone is always ready to recommend a great wine. The salad was crisp with the right amount of salad dressing. Both the Rockfish and Pork Chop dinners we had were excellent. The wait staff was attentive and the courses came with the right timing. Great dining experience.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNice quiet spot for earlyNice quiet spot for early evening, mid week dinner with excellent food.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, atmosphereFood was excellent, atmosphere was romantic Table was ready on time3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb dining experienceWe very much enjoyed the ambience, and were grateful that you didn't seem to be too busy. It made it quieter than we anticipated, which was good for us, as one of us talked very quietly, and it would have been a strain had it been busier.
The food was great. My dessert, the bread pudding, was not that special. Should have been a sauce to pour over it...3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great meal at HarryAnother great meal at Harry Browne's!!!! We'll be back, many times.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
