It will be a new concept restaurant not Phillips. Actually Phillips is trying to sell all their restaurants (O.C. and Inner Harbor) also. Their main business is the commercial one especially crabmeat from the far east, where most of their product comes from ( Thailand). They lost over 1100 emplyees and an operation in the large tsunami 3 years ago, and have struggle to come back from that.

Anyone have any recommendations for places in Annapolis? something easily accessible by boat. I've seen a few in this thread. I'm going to be staying there march 3, 4, 5 (tues, wed, thurs) with two friends from college. Looking for good value, good bay seafood (crabs). Also looking for some good bars to go to at night.

Check out Davis' Pub in Eastport if you're looking for a good bar full of locals.

March is not quite prime crab season. But I bet you can find some good food. For a place accessible by boat try Sam's on the Waterfront (Welcome to Sam's on the Waterfront) and Cantler's on Mill Creek (Cantler's: Maryland Blue Crab Houses Seafood Restaurants Waterfront). I would call both before going to see if they do have crabs (they will have crab dishes,but maybe not steamed crabs).

Annapolis is a culinary wasteland. There really is not much here that is a good value.

That said, Davis' Pub in Eastport is a great place to hang out. Not fancy, but very good value. Jack's Fortune (anchor in Back Creek and walk up along South side) is great Chinese. Joss on Main Street is the best sushi around. Lemongrass on West St is good Thai.

Find a member to invite you to Eastport Yacht Club. Very good kitchen.

Bars: Middleton's at City Dock is decent, as is Pusser's at the Marriott. Don't expect great food, but the crowds are fun.

Cantler's is a pit.

If you want crabs, hit Annapolis Seafood on Forest Ave and cook your own. It's darn expensive these days, and much of it isn't local in the restaurants.

If your looking for a good burger try the Bay Hundred Restaurant right next to the Knapps Narrows Marina on Tilghman Island. It was so good I took a picture, which ill post once the forum lets me.

Also I remeber liking Woody's Crab House in the town of North East, MD

Its hard to imagine you had such a bad experience there. Mine food there was so good. Restaurants can be hit or miss sometimes though. Whens the last time you ate there?

The only strong negative I have experienced has been Riptides in Edgewater.

We walked in and were seated but when no one came to our table in 30+ minutes we just left!!

Well I guess you are in Annapolis or very close to getting there tonight. It is now snowing and there will probably be 8" or more on the ground by morning. However, I hear it will be in the mid 40s by Tuesday or Wednesday to wash it all away.

I think there have been a lot of good suggestions here regarding places to eat, however I really think it all depends on where you guys will be tying up your horses. I lived in in downtown Annapolis for several years and think you will find the Eastport restaurants and pubs more appealing to the sailing crowd. Indeed Davis' Pub would be first on my list as I was just there last week and things are just the way they always have been; Cozy and warm. They have a great Cheeseburger with Swiss and Mushrooms!!!

Whether Jimmy Cantlers' place is a dump or not, you will need a car to get there or you will have to move the boat to his dock. I'm not sure of the winter hours.

Where I live in Calvert County I know local places that still get decent crabs at somewhat affordable prices this time of the year, but I would expect them to cost at least $75 to $95 or more per dozen in Annapolis if you find them now. However, winter crabs are awesome if you can find them.

If I were docked in 'Naptown near "Ego Alley" or the Yacht club area I would be sitting at Middleton's Tavern listening to some nice music and drinking a good hoppy beer and chilln' with my old college buddies!!!

Have fun!!
