Tremendous views sitting right on the water. Not the caliber of service or food you would expect for $40-$50 entrees. Pub level service or worse. Not a good value.

This classy Inn on the Eastern shore of the Severn River can accommodate casual dining or white linen special occasion dining. We were seated near a window with a lovely view. The service, from Hostess towaitstaff and busboy was top flight.
Food was excellent. My wife is a crab cake connoisseur, and she said it was the best she has ever eaten.
My Chincoteague Oysters and the New Orleans Sheepshead (a flaky whitefish) was outstanding atop a sweet corn puree with fried cauliflower florets.
We will return!

Broken water glass, lukewarm soups, 2 different kinds. Steak warmer than mashed potatoes and cauliflower. Bread hot and good. Waitress fine. Music at 7:30 was Motown, would be ok in bar not in dining room. 2 beers and 2 glasses of wine. Bill $192 without tip. Lukewarm food, left a cold experience for that price.

The Inn's dining room looks out onto the water, so that from virtually any vantage point you have a water view. It's beautiful. Noise level is reasonable, so good for conversation. THe food is hit or miss, sometimes being quite good and other times not so. I had cream of crab soup one night that was excellent, then next time I ordered the same thing it was mediocre. So, reliability from the kitchen is at bit lacking at times. However, I do keep going back. The view is wonderful, the service very good, the venue itself nice, and the food often very good. It is not inexpensive, but is also not the most expensive in the area. The food could be better for the price.

Good location...beautiful waterfront view. Food was okay at best. Steak salad was tasty, crab dip had more cheese than crab, wings were not good at all. Cocktails were great. It was good enough to perhaps give it another try; perhaps try the brunch. I was underwhelmed and I had very high expectations for this place.

There is no denying the spectacular views of this place and I imagine in the spring and summer it would be wonderful to sit out on the deck. However the food was just so so and it's not cheap.
I would have to couch my recommendation with those things in mind.

We dined on the last night of Restaurant Week. The service and cuisine were excellent. We greatly enjoyed the bacon-wrapped shrimp appetizer and the scallop entree. The scallops were done to perfection, not at all over-cooked as happens at so many places. I was celebrating my Birthday, and this was a real gift. On the way out, we made reservations for Mother's Day.

We went to the Severn Inn for dinner during restaurant week. We were seated at a great table overlooking the water. We had the grilled romaine salad and bacon-wrapped shrimp as appetizers, and a seared Amberjack and Scallops as our entrees. The food was amazing and my boyfriend loved his mojito. Our server, Hayley, was very gracious and attentive. Great romantic setting. Overall, a wonderful experience and one of the best dinners we've had in Annapolis. Definitely recommend!

We went for restaurant week week. The menu sounded great but the execution was lacking.
The service was just terrible. While our server was very pleasant, he provided little service. The restaurant had lots of staff and few patrons so he wasn’t busy. He said he was bringing bread. He didn’t. He failed to have the chef leave a big chunk of butter off my meal. He brought the wrong dessert. He didn’t check on us & he was very slow processing our check. We just sat there in wonderment - wondering where he was & what he would mess up next.
The manager never came around to ask how things were going.
Popular restaurants can’t live on reputation alone. Don’t they want to remain popular?

Good value for your money with Restaurant Week. One of the desserts was way too dry even with the topping (pound cake, really? Who overcooks that?). Waitress was slow and service was disjointed. But wouldn't stop me from going again. Had the scallops and they were delicious, ceviche for the appetizer was scrumptious and my bread pudding was adequate. Had a $30 bottle of red that with airing (they decanted it for us) was great value.

Waitress let us know how busy she was which is a thumbs down to start off. Warm bread and honey butter very nice and glasses and silver sparkling. Calamari appetizer was pretty good and decent size. Scallops entree was strange, having been paired with a lot of, too many mushrooms that did not good well with the seared scallops. Waitress reported portions were reduced for restaurant week. Not really a grear comment to endear the restaurant. Overall I think the restaurant is overpriced and overly self congratulatory. Not planning on returning anytime soon, though the view is, of course, very pretty.

We went because of the Restaurant Week lunch menu. Could not have been a better experience. Calamari and cerviche to start, pork belly bbq sandwich and fried chicken salad were very tasty. The fried chicken was served on the side, tender and juicy and the right amount of dressing on the salad.

All ordered from Restaurant Week dinner menu; expected better. Wedge salad and calamari were good, but bacon-wrapped shrimp were dry and puny. Steaks and fish were nicely cooked, but accompanying items seemed reheated and were over-sauced as if to mask that fact. Desserts were disappointing: small, dried out, kind of sad. Server less than pleasant (having a bad day?)
