I had high hopes for O'Brien's when we arrived. Although the restaurant shows its age, often this is a sign of good things. The oyster apps were excellent, nice and big and fresh. However, the cocktail sauce was bland, almost like ketchup. Our steaks were not bad, and were reasonably priced and the beer list was decent. The sides of... More

My wife and I picked O'Brien's to watch a Rockets playoff game while on vacation in Annapolis. The bartender happily switched the big TV over for us. The drink choice was good. The food was tasty. There was even a solo guitar player who came in and played right next to us and was both talented and not cranked up... More

Stopped for mid-afternoon drinks with friends. Clean surroundings and service by bartender Ryan was courteous, quick and professional. Not sure about meal service since only snackers available were saltine crackers.

We settled in for a couple of beers and some grub and O'Briens was perfect. I love oysters, and having them cold, with a chilled beer right off the water was a great way to end the day. Plenty of other great options on the menu. Burgers, Cubanos and more

Stopped in mid-day just for a quick bite to eat ... menu wasn't too interesting. We sat at the bar and service was adequate but there was hardly anyone there and the bartender still wasn't very attentive.. We ordered nachos since that seemed like something both of us could share and be safe since we weren't too hungry. They were... More

We live in Annapolis and have been here a few times. The food is horrible. Much better places to go. Even the fries came out soggy and gross.

This restaurant/bar was recommended to us by a local and we are so glad they did. The atmosphere was cozy and the staff very friendly. I had a Ruben sandwich that was excellent.
