    Crab cake sandwich is one cake, crab cake dinner is two. Best to order both to get your fill 🙏🏼

    The crab dip is dense and delicious, but not a ton — enough for two people easily, three tops.

    Great ambiance, food & drink in a lodge-type setting! Try the crab bean soup, spinach dip, crab dip, and crab cakes! OMG! SO good!

    This is my favorite getaway when I'm in the DC area I make the short drive to Annapolis and enjoy the bakers dozen raw oysters and a pint. Don't forget to try the Crab Cakes

    It was ok, food was ok, servers all seemed grumpy, and out of the house beer. Nothing special or exceptionally delicious. Would I go here again, probably not.

    The oysters are scrumptious! And although I like them unadorned, their horseradish is outstanding.

    If you want to sit outside, you MUST order food! Go during Happy Hour and order a crab pretzel, then enjoy the view!

    Yeah, not great. If you're an Oyster Bar, you should, at least, have decent oysters. McGarvey's were completely without taste.

    McGarvey's is a local institution. The crowd is a little more reserved and you won't find any D.J.'s or live music here. But it's definitely worth a stop on your crawl.

    Crab dip IS excellent, but you should always get the nachos - extra cheese. Get both - they go really well together. Not for dieters, of course:)

    Disappointing... There has to be better place around here. Way to much salt on everything... My tongue hurts.

    Go for happy hour drink specials but do not get the seared tuna. Worried that the 2 pieces I mustered down will give me food poisoning.

    Aviator is a lager, not an ale. Order pints on special Thursdays!

    Try the Cuban Black Bean soup but be careful because it comes out steaming hot! Wonderful texture and a delicious blend of flavors, you won't find anything better in a 10 mile radius!
