    Great views of Ego Alley, beautiful interior design and natural lighting. Our server Jordan was very good. The prices are very high and paying $9 to park on their lot on a Monday at noon was sort of ridiculous. I would recommend it for a business lunch if you have a decent expense account.

    The food and cocktails are great. It was incredibly loud. My friends and I were yelling and screaming just trying to talk to each other. Our ears were ringing when we got out. A decibel meter on my phone was averaging 93db with peaks of 108. Note this was during the winter season with all the doors and windows closed.

    Based on the location & price, did not meet expectations. Food was good, but nothing special, service was adequate, very noisy, the manager did address the few issues that we had.

    Everything was amazing from arrival at valet, seating, waiter, appetizers (honey old bay wings, white wine mussels) entree (blackened rockfish, ribeye) side (mashed potatoes). I don’t remember the names of the cocktail/mocktails we had, but both were great! We will surely return soon.

    A nice place to dine at overlooking the water in Annapolis. The only thing was the spicy fried chicken was soggy wasn't crispy enough. A cup of wine is almost $19 which is a bit much for lunch time. The fried fish and fries, wings, and meatballs were yummy! We also had the Cajun shrimp cocktail and that was good too.

    It is a great location and ambiance but the prices are steep at $39 for a lobster roll and $62 for a diver sole entre.

    The service and food was great! The only reason I left a less than excellent score was because there was a funky smell at the booth like it was wiped down with a dirty rag.

    My trips to Annapolis are normally day trips but my husband and I decided to spend the weekend and explore a bit more. The Choptank had a nice atmosphere, our table overlooked the docked boats and the service was amazing. Our server made some great recommendations and the food was delicious. Couldn’t have picked a better spot.

    The place is nice. But I think the prices were way too expensive from the amount of food they serve. The presentation of the food is bland, it’s not too enticing! Then you have to order the side separately! I ordered the Alaskan Salmon, they served it in a plate, with half a lemon and the sauce! That’s it! The Rockefeller oysters were very good though, I highly recommend !

    This was the first time eating at Chotank, We ate mostly appetizers, which were much bigger portion than we expected! We were happy! Our server did talk and sing to himself a lot, while walking by our table.😂

    Okay here goes. There are ups and downs to this restaurant. We went last night for the first time and I will give you my honest opinion. We made a reservation for a party of 6 a month in advance. In that reservation we specifically requested a window table to look out over Ego Alley. When the restaurant confirmed via a telephone call. They advised that they had our request and that it would "Not be a problem". We showed up just ahead of our reservation and were advised that our table would be ready shortly. We headed to the bar and ordered a drink. My "signature cocktail" the "Leviathon" was probably good, However it was ALL ICE. I watched the bartender make it. Then literally fill my glass with crushed ice and pour in just a little bit of cocktail. It looked like a snowball with some bourbon in it. Not worth $15 at all. We get a text our table is ready. We are not seated at a window. When queried they said "we can't guarantee any specific tables." Fair enough. So we were placed in a high top booth basically in the bar. It was fine as we were all chatting. Our server was excellent. Kept everything moving along well and was very personable. Food was not exceptional. It was good, Fried oysters were very nice, calamari and artichokes and crab dip appetizers were all good. Flavors and portion sizes were good and the table enjoyed them. Only down side is they charge for extra bread when the crab dip appetizer bread ran out. I know that sounds like a ticky tack complaint. But when you order a $24 dollar crab dip appetizer you expect enough bread to get close to finishing it. Mains came out. General consensus was "good". I had fish and chips, i did not finish it. When I got my third pin bone I just stopped. The kitchen should make sure that they are removed prior to sending it out. They didn't. My wife got the crab cake. She said it was tasty. Lots more to say. But limited by characters here. 2.5 stars.

    Excellent service. I had the Chilean Sea Bass. It was well prepared and presented. The dining room can get loud on a Friday evening, but the food and the view were worth the high decibel level. Highly recommended.

    Was told crab cakes were excellent here but I found them to have too much filler and a sweet taste that was overwhelming. Disappointing for a seafood restaurant in Annapolis.The cream corn pudding had way too much pudding and not enough corn, also very sweet. Oysters were excellent and the servicer was friendly but the service could have been a little better. It may have been because of busy holiday crowd . The first round of cocktails were very good which called for a second round but the bartender had changed by then and they also were disappointing, the manager did replace them at no charge. Expected more for the price point
