The Severn Inn is our go to place in Annapolis for oysters on the half shell and crab cakes! They have an extensive wine list and seasonal cocktails. The view across the river of the US Naval Academy make is a special location as well.

Always enjoy visiting the Severn Inn. Service is always excellent and it's certainly the best waterfront view in the Annapolis area. Although, the lunch menu is quite limited for someone that is allergic to crab meat.

Amazing view of the Academy. The food is above average and they have an amazing craft beer list. Baked oysters were very good. The lunch menu was a bit limited, but we liked everything we got.

The entree selection is limited - and very fully priced. While the outside dining on the river was lovely, the service was very spotty (in spite of the fact the restaurant wasn’t busy.) Our meals were merely “ok,” which isn’t enough to make us want to return.

We absolutely love this restaurant. It’s such a beautiful spot with a great outdoor deck in the nice weather. The food is amazing and the staff so friendly. The crab cake dinner I had was a bit pricey but awesome and huge, I could have split it with my husband! Can’t wait to go back!

The crab cakes at Severn Inn never disappoint. A friend and I both had red sangria and the crab cake with fried green tomatoes, corn relish and sautéed baby squash. Just excellent and add to that being able to sit by the river on a beautiful fall day!

Made reservation for 6:30 pm. Arrived 6:25.
Checked in w Front Desk person. Restaurant was not crowded (less than 50 % of inside tables occupied).
After only a few minutes, front desk person forgot we were there, standing only a few feet away from her - she seated another couple who arrived after us . . . I mentioned this & front desk person tried to ignore my inquiry . . . but it was apparent from her reaction that she skipped us . . . after second inquiry we were seated promptly - first at a table in center of room - then at window table, which I had requested.
Table server was good. Helped us with beverage & food selections. The selection of sides on menu confused me a bit, because it implied to me that the Entree would not be filling. Server cleared that up . . . Only 6 entrees - I can be bit picky about food . . . I was fortunate to find something I liked
Food was delicious & filling.
Overall 3 stars - front desk person negatively impacted my service score . . .
Thanks,

The Severn Inn and its location on the banks of the River, across from the US Naval Academy is a good reason to stop. The combination of indoor dining room and deck seating makes this a beautiful setting. We enjoyed the local cheese and charcuterie board, crab soups and other items that were served, including the oysters, Ahi and crab cakes - all wonderfully prepared.

Our server was very nice. We ordered crab dip that was delicious. We also ordered two salads that took over 45 minutes to be brought to the table. They must have been sitting in the back because the shrimp was not hot and the salad was not fresh! Disappointed that a $75 meal was less than satisfying.

Asked for window seat as it was our anniversary, but the hostess didn’t honor my request. Restaurant inside was mostly empty, with underdressed people, in T-shirt’s and shorts. Not what you’d expect for the high food prices.

Not a place you want to dress up for on a nice occasion. Disappointing.

We went for lunch with another couple on Labor Day. I pass this restaurant all the time but never tried it before. We were all really impressed. The views of the river and the Naval Academy Bridge are incredible - every table here has fantastic views. The food was fresh, a bit elevated and worth the wait time, as each dish was cooked perfectly. Lunch menu is a little limited but we all found something we loved. Staff was all friendly. It is moderately priced - lunch for 4pp and a round of bloody marys + plus tip = $150. Very much worth it to us to get really good food and service. You get what you pay for (usually) and the Severn Inn hit the mark. We sat indoors as it was 100 out and we weren't as brave as other diners. Look forward to trying their dinner menu next.

The bottomless brunch (mimosas, bloody Mary’s, and food) for $39 per person is a great deal. They have raw oysters, crab dip, steamed shrimp, along with the classic brunch ingredients, and then a dessert table alongside great views of the Severn River.

You're pretty much paying for the view, which is great, but the food needs to be better for that price. Along with the knowledge of staff. It use to be a bit more upscale which made it's pricing understandable. Now it's like every other waterfront place. Food is meh, and your definitely paying for the view.

Note to chef: Sauces should complement the ingredients, not over power them. Spice is a delicate balance, and when over done can ruin a meal.

Wait staff shouldn't look like they rolled in. Well groomed is a must when working in the food industry. I know I worked in the industry for over 20 years.

My husband had never been here before, and it didn't live up to what I have described, and it was very disappointing. More so, since as new parents we rarely get a date night out. Sad, because I really like this place before. Maybe in a year we'll try it again.

The food and atmosphere were excellent; however, did not like the fact that our waiter used the Lord's name in vain. Nor did I like the fact that the waiters use a PDQ terminal and hover while you are determining the tip to leave. Definite turn off.
