    One is not likely to stumble across this hidden gem of a restaurant...the sign out front is not much bigger than my hand...but it is worth searching out. The food is top drawer, the crab cakes are ALL lump crab, without any filler, and live up to their reputation as, "the best crab cakes you have ever tasted". The hamburger was good, too. The view of the Severn and the U.S. Naval Academy is worth the trip, all by itself.

    My family and I loved it here. The view is gorgeous and the food was spot on. The only dish we did not care for was the french toast lasagna. It was mushy and the restaurant would be better served to just serve stuffed french toast. The oysters were fresh and the lamb was juicy and tender. We will visit this restaurant again.

    Everything about our experience there was fantastic but for one thing. We felt rushed…we didn't have time for our first cocktail and the food was already on the table. We would have ordered another bottle of champagne, but we were served so quickly…no time. So, please don't rush the food at us. We like to DINE not just eat! Thank you.

    My first visit to Severn Inn was for my buddies Birthday. We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch. The view is beautiful. There is quite a mix of people at this location who dress down AND who dress up! It's great seeing everyone there old and young all enjoying the ambiance. I have returned for my Anniversary and a family event. Yesterday my husband and I had recieved a gift card from a good friend and we both dressed up and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. The atmosphere has always been good. The service is friendly but on the ball! We are VERY happy Customers and will be back for more!

    I took my fiancé here for a late lunch on his birthday. We arrived on time and with reservations were seated very quickly. We were seated outside on the first deck, it was perfect. The scenery was lovely and romantic. We had a full view of the Severn River. Even though the food is expensive, going here for lunch was great. I will say that the service is a bit slow during peak lunch/dinner hours, but that's to be expected when there's a crowd. Overall, the waiters are very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anymore who is looking for great food, a beautiful view, and a romantic atmosphere.

We sat and ate the wonderful food while watching the boats cruise by. And the service was exceptional. I raved about the experience to all my friends. Great place to go for a special occasion! !

    We decided to sit outside to enjoy the view of the water and Naval Academy. We received excellent service and didn't feel rushed. We relaxed and enjoyed our drinks as well as appetizers - cream of crab is amazing. Our dinner choices tuned out to be wonderful. The rockfish dish was absolutely delicious as well as the soft crabs. The chef knows how to plan a menu!! Can't wait to go back to try other dishes.

    Very enjoyable lunch at the Severn Inn and can't wait to go back. The view of the naval academy is spectacular over the water, and the food and service were equally as great. I don't even particularly care for crab cakes, but upon the waiter's recommendation, I order them as an appetizer - and they were delicious! I would definitely order them again next time.

    A great selection of food for a Sunday brunch with a great view of the Severn river and the fresh smell of the breeze. Fresh oysters, shrimps, for seafood lovers; and prime rib, chicken, Eggs Benedict, and various other choices; including a delightful dessert to top it off. The champagne helped too :> The basic price is very acceptable at ~$33 per person. Great place for a family gathering or with friends. Note: A very slight jab - the prime rib can use a bit more tenderness and a thicker rub of spices (for perfection).

    The Severn Inn is in a very scenic location overlooking the water and the Naval Academy. Our server, Linda, delivered the best service. Each course was brought out with expert timing and Linda was just great with the peculiar interests of my 4-year old niece in particular. We all had the cream of crab soup, which was awesome, and my favorite part. We also had the surf and turf which featured a very tender, flavorful filet Mignon and scrumptious crab cake. I am definitely looking forward to visiting again for dinner, and even at another time of day.

    The Severn Inn has the potential to be great but came off as an over priced yaught club. When I made the reservation, I specifically told the inn that it was for a special birthday dinner. Long story short, the hostess played favoritism for outside seating. We started with the cheese plate and wine, which was brilliant. We then had the virginia little neck clams which were gritty. A sea food restaurant should be able to get this one right. When brought to the servers attention, nothing was done or offered. Such a shame, it has potential but fell short. Only recommend having cheese and drinks in the outdoor seating. But only if you are prepared to negotiate with the hostess over out door seating, locals seem to get priority.

    The Inn has become our favorite go-to place. We arrived at our spec'd time on Wednesday, and were promptly given a choice of seating. We elected to be on the deck, and enjoyed the perfect weather, complimented by also perfect food, service, and the view. It doesn't get any better. Starters, entree's, and sides were all well seasoned and perfectly plated. Only downside was we all ate too much, and couldn't do desert.

    We celebrated my birthday with my son and daughter-in-law (who had never been to Severn Inn), and it was delightful. Food never disappoints (catfish, grouper, crab cakes, steak). Waitress was efficient and quickly corrected one small mistake (a beer on the menu was not what she brought, but beer-loving son detected the difference, and she brought correct one). Even though it was a rainy evening, it was still lovely...especially when the clouds finally broke and we could see the Naval Academy all lit up. Lovely evening....we will be back!

    We really enjoyed this restaurant from the wine, to the food to the desert. Our waitress was wonderful. We had scallops and they were done perfect, also had risitto that was very tasty and the desert was the perfect ending to all. The view over the river is beautiful and looks over to the Naval Academy. Right next to INN is a park so when done eating can drive right around corner and enjoy more time taking a walk or just sitting on one of many benches . Highly recommend the Severne INN, do not miss this place.

    Severn Inn is one of our favorite places to eat in Annapolis. The Severn River view of the Naval Academy certainly makes it special, but the food and the service also contribute to an excellent dining experience. If the weather cooperates, an expanded outside eating area is a treat. Regardless of inside or outside, the daily menu specials contain market availability ingredients for that day and show off the creative skills of the chef. On this particular day, specials of the day included Watermelon and Tomato Gazpacho and Cornmeal Breaded Soft Shell Crabs, both were excellent! The regular menu is also excellent and is always available. If you save room, deserts are always delectable too!

    This was the second time we've enjoyed the Severn Inn. We made reservations online and everything went perfectly. First of all, you can't beat the scenic location. We had an absolutely wonderful spot in the restaurant. There were four in our party and we sat by the window. From appetizer and drinks, delicious main course, to after-dinner visiting over a nightcap, the evening was exceptional. Brady was our waiter and he added to our evening! We never felt rushed. We were celebrating two birthdays in our group and I know all of us will remember the evening with a smile!

    I've been to the Severn Inn several times this year. Once for dinner, once for lunch and 2 times for the Sundy Brunch. I have found the brunch to be the best this year. The regular menu seems to be hit and miss. One of my favorite items is the grilled romaine salad, used to be awesome, now I won't even order the salad. It was so disappointing the last 2 times I ordered it. The presentation wasn't good it was just thrown on the plate with not much dressing, cheese or bacon. Basically no effort put into the preparation. Very sad, it use to be the BEST.

    I went here with my fiancee after he proposed to me in downtown Annapolis. We originally were being seated on the upper deck. We requested to have a table down by the water on the lower deck for our special occasion and without missing a beat the gentleman seating us said, "Sure! No problem! Right this way." Our waitress even gave us a dessert that said "Congratulations" written in gel on the plate. The food was superb, and worth every penny. The wine selection was phenominal - everything from a bottle in the mid $30s to over $100. Whatever your taste or budget for wine, they have it!

    We enjoyed the view as much as the food, watching the sailboats with the NavalAcademy in the background. My hamburger was cooked perfectly medium rare as ordered. The quiche florentine was enormous, and tasty with a large accompanying green salad. We had some special requests for the waitress, who was most accomodating. A grtood experience all around.
