We have been to Maryland twice and both times we can't stop talking about the crab cakes at Chick and Ruth's!!! They are amazing!!! Well everything there is great. It's not only the food but the experience one gets from going there is the best.

I may be the only person on the east coast to feel this way however.....went there for lunch after the rush: about 1:20pm. Was seated immediately and the restaurant was not full. It took three different servers walking by, looking at us apologetically, over 15...More

...and we picked Chick and Ruth's. It wasn't our first time there & won't be our last. Their crabcakes are delicious always. I can't review the desserts as we're always too full.

ANnapolis has few restaurants for breakfast but this is a gem. They have great eggs and all of their breads and bagels et. Are homemade!! It is very busy and they have over 25 kinds of pie. Waitresses are friendly and food arrives quickly.

We went based on recommendations here, as we were visiting the area. Place is crazy-looking from exterior, like a Vegas Diner on steroids. It's a little over-stimulating. It's narrow and there are a lot of seats but they're small tables and they're tightly in there....More

Though there are dozens of other items on the menu we go for the breakfast. Extremely popular place for decades so on weekend mornings you may find a line. Get there early!

Went here because my sister picked it. It was cramped and the portions were huge but not good. The crab cake was greasy and full of filler. My nephew said kraft mac and cheese is better that his mac and cheese. He also saw a...More

Broke da' mouth...AGAIN! Hawaiians describe as food almost too sumptuous to endure as food that will "broke da mouth" so that a person is ruined for any other food. Chick and Ruth's is dangerous for mouths.....they get plenty broke! Janette is a co-conspirator with Ted...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.
