    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:)

    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.

    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!
