It's all about the view which is beautiful; the food was unfortunately mediocre and overpriced. There was no entree on the menu for a vegetarian so we asked the waiter to talk to the chef about what they could do. They took the crab out of the fettuccini alfredo and charged the same amount as with the crab but didn't add any extra vegetables. The fried green tomatoes were greasy and tasteless. Our vegetarian guest was served the salad with bacon so it had to be remade. We had to ask for the dessert menu although we told them ahead of time and reminded them when we were seated that we were there for a birthday. The dessert arrived with the candle burnt down and the ice cream melted. Overall the meal was disappointing.
Graduation very nice
Service was great. But, the omelettes were flat, not fluffy at all. I asked for bacon and tomatoes and you were out of tomatoes. The Eggs Benedict looked nothing like they should have and didn't taste all that great. No turkey or ham and your crab soup had crunchy vegetables with no flavoring. However, your desserts and pancakes were wonderful.
Beautiful location, great food, excellent service. Love this location for a view of the naval Academy that you won’t forget. Very reasonably priced for the value of the venue
Nothing to write home about. The prices were crazy for the level of food. The view is amazing, it'd be nice to have a dining experience that was as fantastic. It was just ok.
Great location, friendly service but very pricey and didn’t offer a lot of variety with the exception of the beer and wine list. Food was edible, however, they close the dinning room at 10 and we weren’t offered coffee or dessert after dinner, felt rushed to leave. It would not be my first choice of restaurants in the Annapolis area.
Just amazing, as usual. Rainy, rainy day - perfect to enjoy a great lunch with an old friend with no rush, good food and service.
There was nothing exceptional with the food that we ordered. The crab dip and crab soup were very good, the rest was fair at best. We sampled a good bit of the menu and were disappointed. We will not go back. The dining experience just was not worth the $250+ spent. Too many better choices.
Hector our waiter was excellent. The food delicious. Sitting on the dock near the water perfect.
We enjoyed our visit to the Severn Inn very much. We ate outside on the lower deck and the view of the river as well as the Naval Academy was spectacular. The food was quite good, ordering from the more reasonably priced pub menu. The kitchen’s unwillingness to be flexible with a special request was a surprise. Nevertheless, the meal was good and we’d recommend the Severn Inn.
Beautiful view, great service and food - wonderful place
The service and the view were incredible. I recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Picturesque setting. Quiet and 8nviting ambiance. Amazing food and drinks. Delightful wait staff. I am looking forward to getting back there.
A beautiful space with amazing views. Very limited menu and very high prices. We enjoyed, but know there are better meals/values in Annapolis.
Wanted to sit outside and they said they were full but had empty reserved tables and would not seat us
Ironically they don’t take reservations for the common folk
This was my second time dining at the Severn Inn. The first time was during restaurant week and the food was quite good. Unfortunately, this second visit, the food was substandard; especially the entrees. I ordered the pork chop and not only was it not seasoned, the meat was not fully cooked near the bone. The pork chop was piled high with mash potatoes, toppled with stewed apples. Not a winning combination at all. My companion ordered the salmon and it was overcooked and blan. We also ordered a side of brussel sprouts which were totally unflavorful, uncooked and very tough to eat. Needless to say, as beautiful as the view is, we probably won't dine there again.
The location on the River is a plus, and the food was good, but the menu was limited and the pricing was a little high for lunch.
I gave a poor review to the service, because it took a long time before we saw anything being served to our table. We ordered a bottle of wine and there was a bit of delay before it arrived, we did not pay much attention to this. But that was an indication of whagt would happen next.
The time we spent waiting for the appetizers to be served, and then for the main courses to be served was much too long. We spent over 2 hours at our table, and did not order any dessert or coffee, fearing that it would then take forever to get these served. We have dined at the Severn Inn several times, we have never encountered this slowness in service before....
The Severn Inn may have the most beautiful view of any restaurant on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The menu selection is good but do not trust the online menu since they do not always have all of the entrees listed there. I was looking forward to filet minon but they only had T-bone and although it was cooked perfectly, I did not care for the demi-glace (sauce). The scallops were very good and cooked perfectly. The creme of crab was very good but we found quite a few shells. The wait staff was great. The food and drinks are expensive but it is an upscale restaurant. The noise from a large party was moderate but the waitress made sure we were a distance away since it was date night for my wife and I. The bar scene seemed lively.
Food & atmosphere was great. Our waiter was engaging & helpful. Will be back!
Only the bar area was open, and it was a bit casual and loud. If the dining area closed at an earlier time it would have been good to know, I would have made reservations for earlier. Service and food was great, just wanted a more intimate & quiet setting.
Waterfront views and good food make this a place not to miss in Annapolis!
The weather, view, food, and service was beyond our expectations AGAIN. Love this place for Sunday brunch. And our server, Madeline (?), was excellent.
Wow, what a disappointment! After our horrible dinner experience a few months ago; I decided I would stick to brunch here because it was always good but after today; that is over. Same awful server we had at dinner and he was just as bad. The food has really gone downhill too- I didn’t even get seconds of anything. No labels on anything in the big buffet which was just really weird. Pancakes were dry. Just really not good all around. We won’t be back.
Great food, very busy place tonight. Got neglected on our drinks once the main course came, but not a horrendous oversight.
A good time to have by all. Waiters were courteous and attentive, location excellent, food was good.
Server was quirky. Crab cakes quite good but would be great if menu was expanded. Too limited
The overpricing given the quality and type of food served here presented the biggest problem for me, and it unfortunately tainted my overall experience. Perhaps the owners feel the crazy high prices are justified because they are capitalizing on the waterfront location overlooking the Naval Academy; however, there are many restaurants in this area who seem to manage great food, great views, great atmosphere and great value. I am in no hurry to return.
The fish tacos with salmon was delicious. Of the four members of my group, three of us chose the tacos. We all agreed we made the right choice. The salmon was grilled to perfection.
It was fabulous
It was a lovely day, so the view was much appreciated. Service, as always, was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. My omelet was delicious, as were the cheesy grits.
Over cooked tuna
Disappointing service but good food and outstanding views
I have dined at the Severn Inn for lunch on many occasions and for dinner only twice. The service at dinner was horrible, lunch was not too bad. My first dinner was with a very large party so I was willing to forgive the slow service but the second time for dinner for two, the service was so slow as to be inexcusable. We ordered an appetizer that came quickly but for dinner we had also ordered two appetizers, a bowl of soup and a crab cake appetizer, that took an hour (no exaggeration, I was watching the time). After it had been about 30 minutes with no interaction with any wait staff, I sought out our waitress and had to tap her on the shoulder to get her attention. I asked if she'd forgotten us and she said our dinners would be up soon. Then after another 15-20 min another waitress noticed us looking rather forlorn and she came and asked if we were OK. We explained and she promised to look in on the kitchen. (Maybe she should have gotten the tip!) Our waitress finally came with our food and apologized for the delay explaining that another table had gotten their order in ahead of us. This doesn't really wash as appetizers are supposed to be pretty much ready to go so they can be served quickly. Why did it take an hour to get food billed as appetizers? No explanation other than our waitress forgot about us. Did she consign us to dining hell because we didn't order that much food so the total wasn't worth the potentially small tip?
Maybe the staff counts on the great view to keep our minds off the interminable wait for food? Perhaps the Severn Inn has become a victim of success with more tables than the kitchen can handle. We won't be back for dinner but will give lunch a chance.
Went with a group of eight people who where in town for a family event. Picked the Severn Inn because it has an outstanding view of Annapolis. The food was as impressive as the view. Quality oysters to start and entre's where excellent. Recommend trying the rockfish.
Always an excellent and relaxing view. Cheese board was perfect lunch option although possibly provide a choice for the meats.(would not have missed salami or fig dip, maybe add some olives? fruit?). Otherwise, excellent!!! crab dip excellent . Waitress very friendly and helpful. Just a tad slow on diet coke refill. Otherwise the perfect lunch shared with my daughter.
I recently visited the Severn Inn during lunchtime for the first time to celebrate a friend's birthday, per her suggestion. I ordered the reuben. Much to my surprise, the meat was brown and not the usual red color of corned beef or pastrami. Also, the taste was not the customary reuben flavor. When I asked the waitress about the sandwich, she said the meat was smoked pastrami - the lunchtime menu indicated pastrami. She offered an alternative -- I chose a cheeseburger as a replacement which was okay. My friend had the crab cake which she had ordered and loved on a previous visit. However, this time, she said that while the crab cake was good, she didn't like the accompanying veggie dish which had changed to include chopped brussel sprouts - totally changing the previously wonderful flavor of the recipe,
In summary, the best parts about this visit warranting a repeat visit were (1) the scenic view of the Severn River and Naval Academy, (2) the Sangria (one of the restaurant's specialty drinks), (3) the customer service offered by our waitress, and (4) the complimentary brownie dessert with a lit candle to celebrate my friend's birthday.
Brunch with the family. One of my favorite spots to go to.
Sunday brunch was packed! Very glad we had a reservation. Comparable price to other local buffets, but bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys make it well worth it. Food, as always at Severn Inn, was well above average.
Came highly recommended by friends. Food and atmosphere were great!!!!! Looking forward to returning maybe even a private party.
We had a double date night with friends during restaurant week and it was a good way to taste several dishes without breaking the bank. Everyone enjoyed the food tremendously! Service was attentive as well.
