O'Learys Seafood Restaurant
Too TightThe service is excellent and the food is very good, however the dining area is too small. Six people sitting in a booth was not comfortable to say the least. Beside that, it's very nice.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat scallop appetizer andGreat scallop appetizer and loved the fried grouper!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTuesday evening dinnerThis past Tuesday we took our guests (another couple) to dinner at O'Learys. The service and food could not have been better. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and quiet enough for good conversation.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Meal!!O'Learys remains in my mind the best seafood restaurant in Annapolis. The Starters menu was so enticing that both my wife and I eschewed the entre selections and just went for appetizers. I started with tomatoe soup, then my wife and I each had the beet salad. For my main course I had the Oysters Italienne and the Fried Oysters. My wife had the Tuna Shashimi. Both of us really enjoyed our meals. In my opinion they prepare the best oyster based dishes in town. This is not the first time we ordered just from the Starters menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMour go to place for specialour go to place for special occasions. have never had a bad meal here. Everything is always done really well. The only downside, is that it is pricey, hence the wait for special occasions only. If you love seafood, you will enjoy O'Leary's.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable & a smidgen of elegancePerfect dinner for 2. Warm & quaint atmosphere. Easy-going with a comfortable touch of elegance, lively & friendly but not overly-energetic. Inviting decor with an eclectic mix of Mediterranean-esque & nostalgic Annapolis nautical charm. Friendly, Knowledgable and attentive staff. A bit off the beaten path, but includes a somewhat-obstructed view of downtown. The harbour area is steps away, providing for a nice after-dinner stroll. If interested in the beaten path, downtown is a short walk away. A large parking lot is a bonus! Our meals were excellent & the presentation was pretty without being pretentious. True foodies might crave more zing. Portions are generous. The wine was perfect. We would recommend to friends & visitors. Cheers!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food in Annapolis/Eastport!Great Food and dining experience...wine list is not great.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great!Been going to O'learys for years.

Our forst choice for seafood.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service very good.asFood and service very good.as usual- only a few minutes wait for a table -usually noisy but on a Saturday night VERY noisy.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Well Timed Service!The food is excellent, it is our favorite restaurant in Annapolis where we go for occassional dining and special events. The service is also well timed, unobstrusive, and not rushed if you want to take your time.
The restaurant is cozy and has a good feel although it can feel crowded at times but it was very noisy on our last visit and we do not like to use the front left dining space as it can be especially noisy.
I have to say that they have some very amateurish art work that I always find disturbing because it is of such uneven quality and too bold for the space. I am a big fan of modern art so the issue is not style, rather quality of the pieces selected.
This does not stop us from going as we think the food is always wonder4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening. Pat was ourGreat evening. Pat was our server.

They were exceptional, as was the tuna. The grouper however, which is one of their signature dishes, was a little disappointing. To our taste, it was too heavily breaded and there were too many competing flavors and spices overwhelming the fish. Chris was terrific - he didn't over wait or rush us but was there instantly when we needed him. All in all, a great success. We will go back for sure.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDonna JenkinsThe atmosphere was wonderful, service was superb and we will definitely be back!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe experience was exceptional,The experience was exceptional, we come here for special occasions or to simpley dine.
