Stopped in for a quick snack. The staff are very friendly and help out in zones so you won't have to wait for anything for long. We went during the crush of tourism for Naval Academy graduation week and had no problems due to the...More

Just a dock line's throw from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Chick and Ruth's is the kind of place where obesity might be considered a state of grace. Fat, sugar and salt seem to abound in the menu selections. While I'm keeping it a...More

I go to breakfast there regularly, as the Deli is interwoven into the Annapolis political and cultural lore experience. The menu is extensive and portions are very generous. However, the popularity bring nighttime crowds and long waits unless you take a less-than-desireable counter seat. Cleanliness...More

A wonderful selection of sandwiches; breakfast; milkshakes. Hard to decide. Go several times to try several items. People are very friendly; just like home all the time. Salute to flag daily at 8:30 a.m. Ted & wife carry on traditions of its fabulous founder, Chick.

We had dinner here on a recent trip to the area. We are originally from the NYC area, so we were fine with the decor. Food was good. Not old time NYC good, but plentiful and good.

Filthy. Cramped. But THE BEST crabcakes I had in Annapolis. So why the drop in stars? Because server #17 was one of the worst servers I have had in a long time. What a horse's rear... short and nasty. OK, so I didn't know what...More

For starters, don't bother with any sandwich that isn't named after a Maryland politician. They are the ones you'll mention to your friends when you get back from vacation. Service wait times can be spotty...come in the non-prime-time hours for the best experience. There have...More

Don't know for sure, but I highly doubt it. It is a very small place and walking between tables seems & feels crowded. Of course, you should call them to get a definitive answer.
