Lucky to get an outside table on a beautiful afternoon, our meal was fine, the house wine especially good and our server pleasant and efficient. But she definitely had too many tables inside to take care of the outside diners. Not her fault and everything eventually came out as we had ordered

Great food, wonderful service. Has the feel of a classic Manhattan restaurant. Party of four all enjoyed entrees including both steak and seafood. Timing of everything was just about perfect. Wine list was solid, not over-the-top and the prices per bottle were reasonable. Highly recommend for somewhat formal occassiins.

I booked my reservation based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. My meal was delicious I had the crab Benedict with hash browns and fresh fruit. The complimentary Mimosa was a nice touch and yogurt parfait was delicious as well. I will definitely be back.

My wife and I had dinner for my birthday and every thing was excellent. I had the rack of lamb and my wife has the salmon. Both were excellent. I would not go there when the Capital is in session. It will be full of politicians and lobbyists.

Amazing Dinner and evening
We had not been here for a long time...but this evening was amazing.
Sunday evening ... very quiet...fabulous service and the food was terrific!
Be sure to try the Crab Empanadas... the cheese plate was wonderful
Our waiter took time to explain the main courses... and to stage the main course
after we had time to enjoy our libations and unwind from a hectic week.
They also have a separate room upstairs for larger parties... which is very
helpful. Delightful location on the Circle... Beautiful decor... we will be back soon!

This restaurant is a must if you are visiting Annapolis. Excellent service, good food and ambiance with a beautiful view of the State Capital (the best table is by the front window). Prices are a little high, but a great overall experience.

We were seated near several loud tables which detracted from our overall dining experience, but the chef did a fabulous job. The crab cakes were excellent — lump meat served with a tasty sauce, asparagus, and perfect hush puppies. I look forward to returning.

Food was good and portions were bigger than expected. Service was good but not quite the caliber that I've had at similar types of restaurants. We were celebrating an anniversary and had noted it in the reservation but nothing was mentioned or done during the entire meal. The least that could have happened was a mention of it when seating us. As for seating we made a reservation and yet we got the table right by the window with the sun right in my husband's face and there were plenty of open tables (not in the sun) that were available and never used during our time there. Overall it was a good meal but there was nothing that made me feel like we'd have to go back next time we were in town.

Fantastic experience.
Great service: professional and attentive.
This restaurant is much cosier than it appears in the photo.

Definitely try the crab bisque. Best ever: large chunks of crab in a delicious creamy base that is well seasoned with appropriate spice.
The rack of lamb was perfection: crisp savory crust, and pink juicy inside.

The crab cake look a bit suspect in the photos that are posted. Ignore! They ate wonderful: large pieces of crab and well seasoned.

Excellent wine list. A bit limited by the glass, but good choices are available.

Two waiters and the owner went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Everything was wonderful but I do have one suggestion. With the large amount of retirees in Annapolis, if you all could provide a bathroom facility on the main floor that would be such a huge help. A lot of steps to get up to the top floor especially for someone in their 80s and 90s who are still active and go out. It’s always nice to remember that Population as it’s not always easy for them.

We were there for brunch on Father ‘s day and everything was excellent. Our server was Ryleigh and she was outstanding. The restaurant is across the street from the Maryland State House and the ambience was refined yet relaxing. Will go back. Complimentary Mimosas were a nice touch.

Our experience was fantastic. We were promptly seated, and our waiter Eric was fantastic. We had the window seat, which allowed great people watching on a Friday night. Recommended wine was fabulous. Arancini and mussels were fabulous. My husband got the crab cakes, which had a mustard sauce on them that was very good. I had the shrimp & scallops over risotto, and it was also very good. We were too stuffed at that point to try dessert.

Whet to Harry Brown’s for Mother’s Day. Great experience. Food was very good with a lot of selection. All cooked perfectly. Atmosphere was quiet even with 3/4’s of the restaurant filled. Service was perfect, all drink were filled routinely. Great experience for our party of five.

I will never go back to this restaurant. We were enjoying a very nice Mother's Day brunch until the host told us we needed to be "out in 5 minutes for another reservation". We had been there almost an hour, were finishing our meal, and waiting for a cup of coffee my wife had ordered. The server hadn't brought the check yet, and the host never even spoke to the server (we know because our table was right near the door).

I'm appalled that a restaurant would have such shameful customer service.

An all time favorite which disappointed me for a special night out with good friends. Most especially the service was inadequate. We waited nearly 30 minutes before any drinks were served and then waited for our dinner order to be taken. Midway through dinner there was a minor flood apparently from an equipment malfunction which led to a frenzied staff and less than relaxing atmosphere. Although 3 of 4 dinners were excellent, our 4th was extremely disappointing (poorly cooked rib eye with dried out twice baked potato.) We hope this was a one-off night as I often recommend Harry Brownes as "never disappointing."
