Pusser's Caribbean Grille - Annapolis Ratings and Reviews
I requested a table by the water on open table which I understand is a request. The hostess said she had no tables there and sat us in the back. Two minutes later 2 tables of people left. She should have known they were coming up and told us we could wait for the table.
At breakfast we requested a table by the water and the waitress said there were none. She took us to a crowded table in the back and I saw a table empty by the water and asked her if we could have that one and she rolled her eyes and took us to one nearby. I again asked for the one by the water and she again rolled her eyes. It is a shame that this restaurant has gone downhill. We used to love it. There is no reason to be rude to clients.
The service and ambiance was great. We went during the same time as the boat show so needless to say, we enjoyed ourselves watching the beautiful boats. The icing, we were seated right next to a window.
The food was good, not great. We ordered the oyster Rockefeller which was divine but came in small portion. I then ordered the Grouper which was pretty good.
This restaurant has been one of our favorites in the past, but things have gone downhill. The restaurant was not clean. The french toast I ordered was soggy. Eggs and pancakes, etc. were mediocre at best. The only thing this restaurant has going for it is the view. Bathrooms were gross. Broken stall doors and locks and remnants of last nights college dance party left much to be desired at this restaurant. Friendly and efficient waiter was the only positive.
My friend and I both had the Crab Cake lunch meal. Crab Cake was okay. I like my crab cake with drawn butter. Had to ask for it, but was served ice cold hard butter. had to ask a 2nd time for drawn butter (melted).
Couldn't ask for a better location. Great Boat watching.
I just moved to Annapolis and was receiving friends for the day. I was looking for a good place to eat and saw the ad for Pusser's on my computer. Decided to make reservations. It was a truly wonderful, relaxing experience. Excellent food, excellent service and an over-all great lunch. Would indeed suggest it for anyone looking for a good place to dine in Annapolis. I will definitely return.
The pain killers are well made. The food is outstanding, well prepared, and tasty. Fresh salads with creative dressings. The coconut shrimp is outstanding. The fish is well prepared with a variety of preparation styles. The waterside seating is scenic and fun to wwtchnthe boats. We dine here every trip to Annapolis.
Pusser's is always a fun time. We sat outside by the water on a beautiful Sunday night. I had the swordfish Annapolitan style (with a crab meat topping) and my husband had the barramundi - both were very good. The crab dip was delicious as was the brownie Sundae. Service was fast and friendly.
The fish of the day was seasoned and cooked perfectly and that was what we had come for - and I'd go back just for that, it was that good. Otherwise the experience was bearable but not the makings of an enjoyable dinner out. (The lights were overly bright, the drinks were just drinkable, the veg were bland, and the rice was well seasoned but dry.) maybe if the weather had allowed us to sit outside or if we'd gone during the day and could enjoy the view it would have been better overall.
Although the waterfront view at Pusser's is fabulous, the food is not great. I ordered the same Mahi dish as my two friends, except broiled instead of grilled. When the food arrived their fish had seasoning and mango salsa, mine was absolutely bland with no seasoning or salsa. Our server didn't come back until we were finished with the meal. When I complained to her about my dinner, she replied that's the way broiled fish comes. Possibly the worst restaurant meal I've ever had, though I will say that the Coconut Shrimp appetizer was very good.
The appetizers and entres are tasty and plentiful. The PainKiller cocktail is one of the best of it's kind that I've ever tasted. Dockside table dining is not to be missed, but the sailboat cruise yacht takes up half the dock and all the view of the harbor. Our waiter "went missing" for long periods of time. My fiance and I drive 140 miles round trip a few times a year to come here, but if it wasn't for the watery ambiance, we'd go somewhere else.
The food was absolutely amazing. Took my boyfriend for lunch on Sunday afternoon and he loved it as well. He's from the Caribbean so it definitely gave him that feel of somewhat being home. Our waiter was great and very attentive. Will definitely be going back!!
On a visit to Annapolis from Pittsburgh we were looking for outdoor and waterfront dining and Pussers is one of the few on the water. We were told that it was ok but great for water and also boat watching. I must say that our food was pretty good and our waitress was also good. The only down fall is the attention to detail and some time the friendliness of the staff. It is a very young staff from the time you arrive to all the wait staff, I thing with a little direction and that attention to detail it would be awesome. The have a great thing with the water and hopefully the rest will come along with some leadership.
The service was wonderful! We were greeted when we walked in right away. We made a reservation for 11a, we requested outdoor seating. We got there at 10:38a. We were seated at 10:59am. Excellent turnaround. The buffet was good for the price. The outdoor seating was amazing.
We went for sunday brunch and it was a great experience. The waterfront view is very nice, and the sunday brunch buffet $12.95 per person was a good value. It included coffee/juice, waffle station, omlette station, fruit, cereal, pastries, and savory items. We'll definitely be back!
Everything went well until we received the BILL!!! We went through open table and picked this location and on the website it said HAPPY HOUR 1/2 price drinks and appetizers. Well we got there at 5:30p and Happy Hour wasnt over until 7p so we thought we were fine ordering 5 items and drinks for half price. WELLLLL... when the bill came and it same double the price I inquired only to be told that you had to sit INSIDE to get 1/2 price!!! Well if I knew that i would not have sat outside in the 92 degree HEAT just to drink extra WATER! I could have saved half the price and sat in the Air Condition and sat by the window and saw the water!!!! So the restaurant should make it CLEARER that the half price is Conditional on the seating arrangement!!! but the Food was Good and the drinks were Good but not GREAT!
Bottomline: Immature and Inexperienced staff make this top-notch location miss-able
I am afraid that the immature waitstaff simply don't have the knowledge, care, or desire to pretend to be professional. I went on a Sunday evening for my birthday. The weather was perfect and we were able to get a spot on the water. When we ordered we found out (not up-front but through the course of the evening) that serval items were not available on the menu.
There was also a soup that wasn't available...
Eventually we were able to find something available on the menu our food was FINE. I had the crab cake dinner which was ok. There are better crab cakes in the area. My friend had the salmon and steak (pick two) and she loved her dish. It wasn't anything amazing, but it was FINE. Our drinks were very good so there is that...
To my knowledge our server Jimmy (I think) did his best to communicate the items not available and seemed amiable. In the end we were given a discount since the bulk of the items we wanted to order were "out of stock". The rest of the staff I'll chalk up their actions as ignorance and not rooted in malice... Even still what they preceded to do upon us exiting the establishment is unforgivable.
I have a friend with CP who was in attendance. Cerebral Palsy is a pretty common disorder and affects people in different ways. When we left we stopped in the bathroom... Thinking we had left several staff were overhead mocking his disability... the way he was dressed. Honestly, the overall sentiment I felt while there was that, "You don't belong..." Might I remind you that it was my birthday.
I urge the upper management of Pusser's in Annapolis to provide some training to their staff. The area is progressive and forward thinking so I don't think it is asking too much to have the staff at this establishment ready to serve all the demographics that will come.
Initial hostess was rude and disrespectful to my friend, when she requested a table by the window and we had a reservation already in place. Once we were seated 20 minutes later, our waiter was friendly and service was ok. We had to ask 3 times for water refills, so that was a little disappointing. We had the fish tacos special and that was very good. Food came out pretty quickly. The view was nice as well. I've definitely had better experiences in the past here.
