Harry Browne's Ratings and Reviews
We were visiting Annapolis and had an early concert that night. My husband's colleagues recommended this restaurant to us. We have eaten at a number of places before but somehow missed this one. The waiter informed us that the chef was Italian which you would not surmise from the name of the place. The restaurant has been there for 40 years. The food was very good, the service was excellent, they had a very nice wine list. We were too full for dessert but they had a great selection. We would recommend the place and we intend to eat there again in the future.
Good thing the flavor of the food was very good because the temperature our hot food was warm. Yet our waiter was quite timely with serving our dishes, meaning we didn’t wait long for our food. The crab soup is delicious. The lamb lollipops would have been excellent, if served hot but they were good. The wine was very good and the price was excellent. I would go again.
We LOVE coming here! It is one of our favorite restaurants in Annapolis. It is close to everything downtown, service is impeccable and everything on the menu is good. They rotate the menu seasonally, but have different menus for lunch, dinner, brunch... We come at least monthly to keep on trying new items.
This was my second time here. First time was not so great but I had a living social coupon for $50 off dinner for 2. This experience was much better in the food department. Service was a bit slower than the last time, our waiter seemed more attentive to other tables than ours.
Had a wonderful dinner. I had a steak perfectly cooked and my wife had crab cakes that were wonderful. 15 minutes after leaving the restaurant I received a call from the restaurant to let me know I had dropped $10.00 at the table. I remembered my wife had given me some tip money for our Left drive home and told them to please give it to the waiter. (Rickey) Was nice to know someone was looking out for us.
Located across State Circle from the Maryland State House, Harry Browne's is a great place for the view, people watching and just relaxing amidst the bustle of the town. The food is uniformly excellent and the variety fills the gap between comfort and fine dining. The specials are a must try. The happy Hour is among the best in the whole Annapolis area. Service is professional, quiet and always appropriate. Desserts are superb and worth the calories.
What a wonderful evening we had. Their were six of us and nothing could have been better. Tony took care of us and the service was impeccable. The food was just perfection on all six plates. The table was ours for the evening. No rush no fuss. My husband and I wil return and also recommend this place to everyone.
My wife and I came here years ago on our 5th anniversary and were glad to finally return. The food was fantastic, from the huge plate of oysters, to the salad we shared, my wife's ribeye, and my seafood risotto. The restaurant is beautiful and we felt fortunate to be seated at a table by the window, which looks out onto the state capitol building. Several minor complaints: first, when we arrived, we waited patiently for the hostess. Another couple came in after us and a man who I assume was the manager decided to help them first, having ignored us for a few minutes (as a side note that should be irrelevant, my wife and I had a reservation, were well dressed, and could not have been missed in the small doorway). Fortunately, the very kind hostess realized what was going on, which might explain how we ended up by the window. Second, our server was helpful with suggestions about food and wine, but he had a somewhat dismissive air about him. More than once he turned heel and walked away quickly without letting my wife or I finish a thought. Third, the upstairs bar was reserved for a party, and was so packed that it was nearly impossible to get to the restrooms. Fortunately, I'm young(ish) and remember the bar scene, so I didn't mind aggressively getting through the crowd with my wife following close behind, but it seemed like a poor setup.
Food was great except my husband's brocoli which was unedible. The rest of the meal was fabulous though. Had drinks upstairs before dinner. Really liked the ambiance and bartending staff. Our dinner server was attentive and friendly. We have eaten here before and always been pleased. I do recommend it. A bit pricey so save for a special occasion.
We had a nice dinner this past Saturday at Harry Browne's. I love the fact that they have Chateau Montelena by the bottle and by the glass! The only real disappoint was the Crab Empenada. The crabmeat didn't taste fresh. I wouldn't recommend it. We both had the Caesar Salad, which was good. I had the Spinach Risotto with Shrimp and Scallops. It was fantastic! The Scallops were huge and perfectly cooked. The Risotto and Shrimp were excellent as well.
My husband had the Risotto Special with Crab, Shrimp and Lobster in a tomato sauce. It was ok, but we both agreed that the Spinach Risotto dish was much better. We split the Creme Brulee. It was good, but I thought it was a little runny --- I've had much better. Our waiter was a little pushy with ordering. We were in no rush, and repeatedly had to tell him that we were taking our time.
It was nice to by back to this neighborhood gem. With a few tweaks, it could really shine.
Service was erratic. Guest plate was removed from the table prior to my dinner being finished. Server left table and it was difficult to obtain bill to settle.
Entree was not as good as described and price was not commensurate with presentation.
For the amount of money involved , a different restaurant should have been chosen.
Lovely food. Good quality. Good atmosphere. Everything We ordered was delicious. Our waiter was excellent. The only thing I felt was off putting was the hostess. She is so serious. Kinda looks you up and down and it's as if you aren't good enough to eat there. Sorry about that, but I have eaten there four times and did not find that lady friend lying. A nice smile and a nice greeting would be appreciated.
We happened upon this quaint little spot while on a weekend getaway to Annapolis. It was quiet the night we visited, but still had a wonderful time people watching and enjoying dinner. We opted for a Charcuterie Plate to start, followed by a split Caesar Salad. The Charcuterie we found to be mundane. The Caesar was very good, and dressed perfectly. For entrees we selected the Pasta Bolognese and the Salmon. Both were outstanding. For dessert, we had the Crème Brule, also outstanding. We brought our own wine, but there seemed to be a bit of confusion about the policy, but they did open and serve our wine, adding a corkage fee. I would call to confirm the policy, as our server, who was very nice, seemed unsure. I would definitely return on my next visit, and suggest you do as well, if visiting Annapolis.
We celebrated a birthday & combined dinner at Harry Brown's with a play at the Colonial Players Theater. Overall a nice evening. We hadn't been to Harry Brown's in the past couple of years. Our selected foods were very good and we enjoyed our salads and main courses.
Always a great experience. We use it for special occasions as we live some distance away. Service has always been great, the food perfect, not hurried to leave. Desert to much of a temptation, but it's great. Will continue to come down for the ambience and good food & service.
Nice atmosphere with friendly service. The food was excellently prepared and wonderful. For us this was a special quiet dinner. Two of the other three occupied tables had loud talking customers (especially one on a cell phone) that did take away some of the pleasure of our dining on this evening, since we were all seated in close proximity.
We have been frequenting Harry Browne's for over 30 years. It has never lost its dedication to providing patrons with a fine dining experience. The menu is extremely impessive. The pork belly appetizer was exceptional and creative. We had never seen it served that way, and everyone was impressed. All of the food was perfectly prepared and spiced. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and never intrusive. The wine list was not extensive, but the selectiona were all from high quality sources. The cabernet we wanted was not available, but we were given a choice not on the menu for the same price, and it was fantastic.
