Looking for a seafood place open early for lunch. The Boatyard was perfect. Cream of crab soup was chocked full of crab and no potatoes, which makes my husband very happy. He ordered the crab cakes and swapped out veggies and mashed potatoes for coleslaw...More

Boat Yard has great drinks and food for a wide variety of tastes. The restaurant has a definite sailing vibe, which is nice (and rare) to see in an Annapolis area restaurant. Not the place to go if you are looking for a quiet meal....More

Casual boating atmosphere with consistently great food and specials that surprise in terms of offerings, but always dependable in terms of flavor/quality.

We love the Eastport Boatyard for breakfast (With mimosas and bloody Mary's), lunch and for dinner. It is kid friendly and great for a weekday friends lunch. It gets noisy and can be crowded on weekends but that is because it is a perennial local...More

Can't imagine it being a problem. You'll see a wide range of dress.
do they take reservations and have a sort of private dining room to celebrate a birthday with family?

Yes, There is a small parking lot to the side of the restaurant. There is also street parking, just make sure not to block a driveway or park in the fire zones.

The Boatyard is where local sailors, fishermen and lovers of the Chesapeake enjoy pint drinks, great crab cakes and the freshest local seafood. Specialties include smoked fish of the day (on premise), cream of crab and Maryland crab soups and an extensive list of crab and seafood specialties. The First Lady came from the White House to enjoy our crab cakes. The Boatyard has the most extensive raw bar in the area including a variety of oysters, clams, shrimp and mussels. The Boatyard receives awards for being most family friendly and having the best burger on the Bay. Its weekend brunch is the best in the area. The Boatyard is located in the historic maritime district of Eastport-a short walk or water taxi from Annapolis City Docks. Its photo boat films the local sailing races and shows them nightly. Named by Coastal Living, Sailing World and Sail Magazine as one of world's top sailing/boating restaurants.
