    Did not like. Spinach dip was gross.

    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

    What else would you order than a "Baker's Dozen" of oysters on a half shell?

    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.

    Nothing better then seeing a cook come out of the bathroom stall still wearing his apron.. Beware

    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.

    Say "thank you" to the staff for hosting the Marine Corps Birthday event each year. Good stuff!

    An Annapolis Institution... The Oysters n Cold Beer are king here.

    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:)

    Gotta see Rose bartend most nights - cute, smart and always gets your drink right.

    Try the Maryland Vegetable Crab Soup!!

    Crab Dip is to die for!

    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.

    Sunday night is the best night to get late night drinks and wings.

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

    Donald L Clautice Jr. · August 13, 2010
  • Dennis G.

    They brew their own house beer. It a nice amber ale called the Aviator

    Dennis Gruetter · April 4, 2010
  • Dennis G.

    Get the calamari. It's the best I ever had!

    Dennis Gruetter · April 4, 2010
  • Dennis G.

    Cozy tables outside. Just make sure to order food with your pints of ale. Town rules.

    Dennis Gruetter · April 4, 2010
  • Eddie L.

    Be sure to have the house brew Aviator, truly a unique great tasting microbrew

    Eddie Lamb · March 27, 2010
  • Jurgen C.

    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!
