    Exceptional waterfront views. Indoor or outdoor tables. Clean, service good for a weekday lunch. Only complaint is the food. I had the crab cake platter and it was great. I grew up in MD, live on the shore where they catch crabs, and know a good crabcake. This one was pretty good. Vegetables were hot and crunchy, cooked perfectly. My friend had a stir fry which was not very good. I highly recommend a weekday because they are not crowded. Hope you find this helpful. Enjoy!

    The bar tenders were not very friendly. they seemed stressed and accused us of not being nice to them. We are the customer and we spent a lot of money that night. we were having a fun time and their reaction to us shed a bad light on the bar. the dinner made up for it.

    I had the Crab Cakes, for a Maryland waterfront restaurant they were terrible by far the worst I ever had. I tried both cakes thinking perhaps I got some bad crab meat, it happens but both were terrible. Perhaps a bad night for the Chef, but there is no excuse to put out Crab Cakes in August that were horrible. Being a Maryland resident all my life, I know a fair to good to great Crab Cake these don't even rank.

    Drinks were very delicious, and the appetizer we had was small but good. All of our entrees were good-- tropical salad was a little overdressed , but otherwise good. The problem was that all of the desserts were supposedly accompanied by whipped cream, but it turned out that it was cool whip-- ugh. So we spent all that money for desserts that were bad. Service was spotty at best-/ certainly not very professional- and indifferent.

    Great food, great view, & great friends. We have been to Annapolis before, but had not eaten at Pusser's - a mistake we will not make again. Oh by the way, you have to get the 15 year rum. The food: we had the Grouper-Oscar dish and the Tuna dish - so fresh it was beautiful.

    Great view. Food is just ok, nothing special. There is a noisy bar that is part of the Marriott that can be annoying. The Marriott controls the edge of the water. We sat down to a great view and quiet only to be annoyed by a drunken guy from the bar who wanted his friends to tie up their boat right in front of us. The Marriott dock guy didn't give a dang about diners and we had to deal with this drunken guy and his noisy friends through dinner. People say Annapolis is so beautiful, but the problem with it is at night it's just a big bar scene. Not a romantic restaurant, not great food.

    My family was there at 6 pm for dinner, they said it was an hour and fortyfive minute wait to sit outside so we opted to sit inside by the window (plenty of empty tables) and we noticed some empty tables outside as well. Tables and menus were so sticky I felt like I needed to wash my hands after touching them. When our food came we all realized it was bland, no flavor on every dish and very small portions yet none of us finished our plate. My sister disliked her Cobb salad so much she sent it back! Our waiter was great though he told my sister she could pick a dessert on the house. Basically way over priced for what it is

    Took a group of three, all of whom have never been to Pusser's, and we were all extremely satisfied. We arrived slightly early than our reservation, put in for an outdoor table (which is right on Ego Alley/the dock) and was able to get that table by the time our reservation rolled around (on a Friday night, no less.) The bar's cocktails are unique and well done, but were quickly overshadowed by the caliber of the food! All reasonably priced considering the location and having been almost all seafood, which usually runs higher than other dishes. I highly recommend the Shrimp & Grits; sounds boring, but Pusser's puts a wonderful, rich spin on it. I'll be back as soon as possible; I do very much recommend it.

    we really enjoyed stopping here for lunch recently as we had only one day in Annapolis. The bbq caribbean salmon with whipped yams was delicious and I would love the recipe! The only issue (not really an issue) I had is I didnt expect my white wine in a plastic cup. Maybe because we were sitting right on the edge of the water and not in the restaurant. All in all, I would go back and I would recommend friends for sure!

    One would expect, at the least, interesting and tasty caribbean style food where "Caribbean" is prominently featured in the restaurant's name. No such luck here. My wife and I had two different carribean named dishes both of which were poorly prepared and bland (definitely not a caribbean trait). This place fits the bill as a hotel reataurant/tourist trap. Slightly rewarding feature was the outdoor deck facing the harbor. Next time drinks fingerfood and the deck. No meal.

    Excellent food. Unbelievable, scenic view. Many of the dockside, water front tables are open seating, so you might have to wait for a while until one opens, but the wait is worth it. Plus, your wait is right next to the bar - win/win.

    The only big problem we had was that we requested a water front table and were confirmed for that from your website.... however, when we got there they told us that they never take reservations for water front tables.............I pressed them on that and showed them the confirmation...... we ended up getting a water front table after a 20 minute wait.........but the attitude of the hostess left alot to be desired...this would not be our first choice again.

    My friend and I dined at Pusser's as part of a getaway weekend to explore Annapolis. Despite being told the food wasn't very good by a few people, we really enjoyed our dinner. We were lucky to get a table right on the water in the bar area. Waitress was terrific. I had the crab cakes and they were delicious! My friend had the lobster and loved it - a HUGE lobster for the price. Drinks were good, atmosphere fantastic - I would recommend it and will definitely go there again.

    My husband and I came here during an overnight trip to Annapolis. After reading reviews, we didn't have super high expectations, but it sounded like a casual fun spot with a good view. All the food was pretty decent and largely portioned. I had the crab cakes and they were nicely done...they weren't lump crab or anything, but the seasoning was nice and there wasn't a ton of filler. My husband had the ribs. They were really flavorful and the meat fell off the bone. And the portion was huge! He couldn't even finish them. The rum drinks are strong and effective. :-) The decor and presentation of the food leaves something to be desired, but our waiter was great and the view was beautiful. I'd say its worth a visit at least once.

    I found this restaurant by surfing the web. We are a Caribbean family and are always looking for nice places to eat with good food, ambience and allow us to feel like we are in a Caribbean atmosphere so this restaurant for Father's Day was just the place for us. The food was great and it was on the water, even though we didn't sit outside, we look forward to going back and having lunch or dinner on the water.

    My family and I took my husband here for Fathers Day Brunch 2014...the only highlight to the brunch was the waffle and omelet station. That was pretty much all they offered. There was a fruit bar without much on it and a noodle station that only had penne noodles and not much choices. We've been here before where there was an abundance of food to choose from but this time was a real let down! I don't think we will be back!

    Had a great time with family & friends. Unfortunately, we had torrential rain, so our visitors from Wisconsin were not able to enjoy the views of Ego Alley. However, food and atmosphere was great and everyone enjoyed the crab cakes and tropical drinks. It's always one of our favorite places to take out-of-town guests.

    I asked my buddy for a fun spot for an early dinner in Annapolis on our recent trip, and he recommended here. It's great for an open-air drink and a meal that'll make you feel like you're on vacation. It gets pretty busy as the evening goes on and they don't take reservations for the deck -- only inside -- so you should get here early.

    This was our first time at Pussers. We arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation and they were able to seat us indoors. We would not have been able to sit outside 20 minutes later, so we sat down. The service was great. The food was also terrific however, they ran out of shrimp and oysters just before we were about to place our orders. To us that was huge; how does a restaurant with so many shrimp options, so well established and located on the water run out of shrimp? I ordered the mahi mahi and my husband got the salmon. Both were wonderful!! We would go back, but again how does a restaurant like this run out of shrimp at 7:00?
