If you search this thread for C&R you'll find a very few people who really like it, but most of us agree it is a place to steer clear of.

Someone needs to tell them that grease is not a condiment.

Oh - and I don't like being elbowed in the ribs by someone at the next table. I'm not sure how they pass fire marshal's inspections.

In Annapolis theres many other better choices, try McGarveys, The Boatyard, Davies Pub just to name a few for local color, and many more options for fine dining options...

It is hard to beleive, but it is true. I guess it is just too many visitors to Annapolis, the restaurants do not need to depend on the repeated customers. However, when clients or out of town guests come to visit, I still like to take them to Chart House for the location and predictable flare.

Last year, it was my routine. Take them for a short sunset cruise. Pick up a mooring ball, freshening up in the boat, call the water taxi to Chart House, Have dinner and back to the boat for some more wine, motor back to the marina. Take them back to Hotel. i must did something right, I have the signed contract. It is all business expenses from the courtesy of Uncle Sam. :P

I ate at Chick & Ruths after a late night sail 34 years ago. It was about 2am, we all ordered breakfast and while sitting there a GIGANTIC cockroach crawled across the wall behind one of our crew. That was my last visit to Chick & Ruths, just hasn't been quite ling enough just yet.

Joe can you imagine how many mutations and generations of GIANT cockroaches they have there now? Boggles the mind.

Man you guys are picky. Where I grew up, healthy cockroaches were a good sign. You didn't want to eat where you saw sickly looking roaches. lol

I guess I'll throw a caveat to folks out there to qualify my recommendations. I don't dislike C&R's. In fact, I rather like it for both breakfast and lunch. I think to food is decent and the quirky atmosphere is an experience. That said, I don't much like standing in line ANYWHERE so I'll pass if there is a huge crowd.

A response from a non-boating Annapolis dwelling resident...
================================================== =
"The place has character, that's for sure, and the crowding on the downstairs floor is part of its charm. I've made new friends every time I've eaten there; conversations with total strangers. I love the food--their crab omelet is to die for. Several other Pac'ers (and Mars clubbers) have been there in times past. No cockroaches that I know of. Ted (owner and son of Chick and Ruth) is a motorcyclist and he loves to host MC clubs.

The governor of MD eats there every morning.

There's gotta be something wrong with those boaters. Too hoity-toity."
================================================== =
Hmmmm..which came first the Governor or the Cockroaches??
