We were lucky enough to be there on a quiet Saturday afternoon when everyone was at the Navy game so it was quiet and the view was beautiful. I would recommend this charming Inn to anyone going to Annapolis. Parking easy instead of in town and food delicious. Cream of Crab soup and Crab Louie--couldn't be better with all that Maryland Crab.

We went for a lunch on a beautiful fall day, mid week. The hostess was very welcoming and were seated at a window table overlooking the water with a view of the Naval Academy. They were not overly busy, but the wait staff was friendly and attentive. The food was very good - we can recommend the shrimp salad and shrimp tacos. I prefer my shrimp salad on rye toast, but the only option was a brioche bun. We shared a dessert of pumpkin dip, served in a small pumpkin with various cookies and phyllo chips to dip. It was a perfect end to the meal without being overly filling. The prices are competitive to other Annapolis restaurants. Lunch for four, with an appetizer and dessert to share, no alcohol, was about $100. I especially like that it is not located downtown, and parking is readily available in their lot. We would definitely return to the Severn Inn.

My wife and I enjoyed a nice dinner at the Severn Inn before going to a school play at Severn School. The menu offered many tempting choices, and the Inn offered a nice wine list. We really enjoyed the food and our wine. The service was outstanding. It is pricey but not over the top.

We were able to sit outside and enjoy a evening with friends on the Severn River. Food was excellent and the sangria is always amazing. Highly recommended going to the Severn Inn.

Linda B was the magic! When a view restaurant is great, or it’s not, it’s the service that makes it. If the food is only average, the venue fails, but if the service is just average, the venue often continues on but it stagnates. Linda was the magic! Caring, thoughtful, helpful, and informative, she timed our meal perfectly, and served the delicious, and gorgeous meal with great timing. It’s no wonder I make it a point to go there whenever I’m in town.

This used to be a great dining location. I have dined at Severn Inn for many years but to our surprise the service started out good and then half way thru the meal the server completely forgot about us! After the meal we couldn't get anything drink, our waiter disappeared and went to the main dining room to wait on a new table. It even took a while to get a to-go box and the check. The waiter boxed the leftovers and the food was LITERALLY thrown in the to go box (based on how it looked when we got home.) It made a bad impression on a first time guest who doesn't want to go back because of the awful wait staff service. What a shame!

Terrible service. The restaurant staff was obviously overwhelmed and unprepared for a full house, even though there was a USNA Reunion/Football weekend and Boat Show happening in Annapolis. We had a party of 6 but there were other larger groups seated around us. We arrived early for our 6 pm reservation and were seated immediately ahead of the other large groups. We ordered our drinks and then appetizers. We were asked to order our entrees at the same time as our appetizers so that they could be expedited. We did so. It was at least 30 minutes between our appetizers being cleared and when we received our entrees. When we asked about the delay, we were told that they would be out shortly. When they finally arrived, my entrée was not what I ordered but the waitress insisted that it was. I had ordered the same thing as the person next to me and we had talked about how it sounded good. He got the correct order and I did not. I did not eat it but I also did not ask them to bring me another dish because we didn’t have enough time to wait. We were attending a reunion event which started at 8 pm. I also asked for a glass of wine and had to remind the waitress twice before I received it. Also when I went to the restroom, there was no toilet paper. The hostesses were walking in with rolls of toilet paper and handed me a roll. I guess I was supposed to install my own. They did remove my entrée from the bill but only because the person paying the bill asked them. To top it off, I didn’t receive my Open Table points. I would never recommend nor return to this restaurant.

Everything was great, except the server. Maybe new? Slow to greet, slow to bring drinks, took forever to bring us our check, seemed like he was super in the weeds All that aside, view was great and food was on par.

Lovely lunch with a friend. The view is always spectacular at the Severn Inn. I have dined here a number of times over the years and the food has been somewhat inconsistent, but this time it was very good. The white sangria we ordered from the bar, was delicious and refreshing. For the meal, we both selected the crab quiche, which was a "special", not on the menu. The portion size was generous, loaded with crab and baked to perfection. It was served with a small side salad dressed with a light honey vinaigrette dressing. Our server, John, gets high marks. He was very attentive without being overbearing, and while I didn't indicate that a birthday was being celebrated, he must have noticed the "Happy Birthday" bag on the table and brought us a small dessert with a candle and two spoons at the end of the meal.

This restaurant has a beautiful view and definitely above average food. My complaint is about my server. She was borderline rude--definitely disinterested. This happens frequently to us because we are not drinkers so servers often turn on us when we stick with water or sodas but it is not an excuse. Our food was excellent and the portions are very large which improve the value quotient for the restaurant since it is rated $$$.

A lovely venue with attentive staff. Food is fine, but could be better. The lobster risotto was far too salty and if it does not move very much in the kitchen, should be rethought.

Lunch with a friend on deck down by the water...beautiful, shady. Lovely Pinot Grigio to start, fresh homemade bread and butter. The Crab Louis Salad was perfect with lots of lump crab, soft head lettuce and showered with crispy fried onions. My friend ordered shrimp salad on fresh greens featuring lots of fat shrimp in a tangy dressing.

My vegetable crab soup was thin and largely tasteless despite the fact that there was plenty of back fin crab. That said, it tasted like the crab had just been added to the very thin and largely tasteless broth.
My soft crab sandwich was good but not exceptional. My wife and the other lady had the crab cake and they were very good.
Our other friend had the tomato salad with pork belly and the Mac & cheese. He said that both were very good.
The service was excellent and it was a pleasant evening. We sat outside, so the view of the Naval Academy was very nice.

Meal was very pleasant and the service was excellent. Wine list was also impressive, and we are in the hunt for the two options we picked. The pricing was a little high, but that is probably due to them riding on the fact that the outdoor view is one of the best in Annapolis.

Regardless, we recommend them and will likely go again.
