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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Could not believe how horrible the service was last night. We were bussing our own tables, pouring our own wine and I asked for iced tea 3 times before I got it. Some of the meals were good but the fried green tomatoes had zero flavor (not even a little salt) and the server was just awful. Dinner took almost 4 hours and very few things were done correctly (as you would expect when paying $41 per entree) I love the brunch here but we will not be back for dinner.
