Had been to Chick and Ruth's several years ago and when we decided to spend a weekend in Annapolis it had to be on the list for lunch. My wife met up with my sister and brother-in-law for lunch. The place was busy as always...More

My family and I enjoyed our visit. My daughter had a waffle with bananas and really enjoyed it. My husband had the 1lb burger, it was huge and enjoyable. I really enjoyed the crab cakes!

I've lived in Annapolis for decades, and enjoyed Chick & Ruth's many times over the years. It's a novel experience for the quirky decor (which has never changed), sandwich options named for local politicians, walls covered with famous/infamous customers, customs such as everyone participating in...More

Chick and Ruth’s is a very popular eatery in downtown Annapolis. Noisy, crowded, with pictures on the walls of the many celebrities (mostly local celebrities) who’ve eaten there. Come hungry, portions are huge; this place was featured on “Man vs. Food.” Typical deli fare, gigantic...More

When our new daughter in law from California said she wanted to try crab cakes in her first visit east, we knew where to go. Loved coming here when my Navy job brought me to Annapolis so it was fun to return with this new...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.
