We got to the desk and they said they had NO reservations even though I said I had Open Table as she said “we never do reservations during boat show weekend”! So your website was not updated on that obviously, but we lucked out they took us anyway!

Brought friends here as tourists for the first time in Annapolis. Since here 10 years ago I was highly unimpressed with the food and the overall lack of friendliness. Started off with being told that, because I requested outside with my Opentalbe reservation I would have to wait a minimum of 1/2 hour. That was ok but the overall drunk scene ended up to be a bit much. No doubt we are in Covid times with short staff - but this was plain old poor management or concern for repeat customers. This has become a tourist trap

Had lunch on 9/20/21, sat outside...great ambience, average service, but acceptable. However, beware if you are checking the menu on the website. We ordered the Crab Cake sandwich and Crab Dip. Online menu says $17 for the sandwich. When we got there, it was $29!! Same with the Crab Dip (which was a tasty sauce that I believe they just "dipped" a crab in....essentially no crab meat). Instead of $14, it was priced @ $20 (although we did have a coupon for a free appetizer, so we avoided that price fraud)! And the Crab Cake was nowhere near what you'd expect in Maryland, pedestrian at best.

The best I can say is that the staff was friendly & the view outstanding. Last time we'll eat there, though.

We had a quick dinner. Ate inside. Asked to move to a different table due to a large noisy party near us and were accommodated. Much better.

Food was good.

Food is lackluster but the view and drinks are great. We thought the food was very bland.
Probably better to go for a cocktail or HH before a night out on the town. I think most people go since it’s right on the water but it’s not the only game in town either.

We had a table outside on the water on a beautiful day which made the experience wonderful. The food is average. And, I would appreciate real silverware to eat my dinner with rather than plastic.

Great breakfast at Pusser's, which is dog friendly, too if you want to bring your 4-legged family. We wanted to sit outside and when they called to confirm my reservation just an hour ahead of time, they said outdoor reservations aren't guaranteed. Of course the outdoor seating was full when we arrived and we would have had to wait 30 minutes. Wish they would take reservations for outdoor seating, saying if you're not there on time, you lose your spot. Service was slow, but that was ok with us.

The ambiance on the water is the only reason this place gets any traffic. The crab dip was warm veggie cream cheese with three tiny bits of crab. The roll was a frozen baguette heated up. At $20 that was the most expensive disappointment I had had up to that point. But I was pleasantly surprised to find myself even more disappointed in the entree served a few minutes later. The crab cakes were meaty but had no flavor. The rice was basically an over cooked mush pile with dried out peas. My wife’s asparagus was over cooked and limp. The side salad was wilted lettuce with canned pineapples. Our server was positive and nice. But for well over $120 on dinner and only 1 glass of wine in that total I’d say definitively we won’t be going back.

While the food was very good, we were seated on the enclosed patio. While we sat there for 30 minutes for our meal, we had over 100 people walk by our table coming from the outside dock inside or visa versa. Not an enjoyable meal st all. No one should be seated there if the area is used for thru traffic from the dock. The food was very good though.

Right on the water with lovely view. It was raining so outdoor dining was not an option today but many tables inside with a view of the water. Menu is not extensive but enough choices were there to be able to choose less to more expensive meals; heavy or light. Some nice tropical drink options, loved the tropical salad, steamed shrimp. Others in our party were happy with their crab cakes and oysters. For non-seafood lovers, they had some chicken options and a shepards pie special. Our waitor was attentive but not obtrusive. It was a great option on the water for a day in Annapolis. I would definitely go again and would recommend.

Waiting for an outside table wasn’t bad since it was a weekday. The location is great being right in Ego Alley but the drawback while eating dinner is the odor of boat fuel. Probably not a big deal if just having drinks. I found the menu to be fairly limited. I ordered the oysters and fish and chips. The oysters were fine but the main course was “meh”.
Would I go back? Maybe.

Sunday afternoon. Long wait to sit outdoors, so we were seated in the area between outdoor seating and the main dining room. Too hot, little air circulating. Limited menu. Opted for 2 appetizers, (out of grouper fingers ☹️) crab dip and fried coconut shrimp. Dip was good. Shrimp were excellent, but only 3 for $14. Mahi tacos weren’t very good…haven’t had mahi in solid chunks before. Paige, our server, was very good.

We went for breakfast and although we loved the view being sat on the dock, the food wasn’t anything to rave about. Basic French toast and an egg McMuffin sandwich. Great wait staff though, very nice.

Sat on the Dock. It was great watching all the boats come and go. There was a tour boat docked right in front of us and warned everyone they were going to blow their horn before leaving. The service and food were excellent

Good food and even better drinks. Nice waterfront setting. Hostesses and wait staff were friendly and helpful. Thought it might be a little more freshly prepared foods but was a little more commercial than I expected but still good. Would eat there again.
