When you go to the Boatyard you feel like you're going to a destination. The wooden bar and sailing photos on the walls embody the sailing life and waterman vibe of Eastport. It is loud when crowded, and it does start getting crowded around 5:30...More

We had a fantastic dinner here tonight. Although we had a one hour wait to be seated, we all agreed it was worth the wait. Crab cakes were great, as well as steamed shrimp and drunken scallops. The ambiance was casual and fun. If ever...More

I stopped by on a Sunday morning for a nice breakfast. Everything was just great with this place, and I can't complain about anything. Service was good--food was good---price was reasonable.

Dessert Nachos! Truly a don’t miss. And of course, no true Annapolis native would miss the (2 words) Crab Cakes.

Great atmosphere, delicious food - fantastic grapefruit crushes! We have been to Boatyard no less than a dozen times and it's always great, whether it's just the two of you or a whole group.

The Boatyard is where local sailors, fishermen and lovers of the Chesapeake enjoy pint drinks, great crab cakes and the freshest local seafood. Specialties include smoked fish of the day (on premise), cream of crab and Maryland crab soups and an extensive list of crab and seafood specialties. The First Lady came from the White House to enjoy our crab cakes. The Boatyard has the most extensive raw bar in the area including a variety of oysters, clams, shrimp and mussels. The Boatyard receives awards for being most family friendly and having the best burger on the Bay. Its weekend brunch is the best in the area. The Boatyard is located in the historic maritime district of Eastport-a short walk or water taxi from Annapolis City Docks. Its photo boat films the local sailing races and shows them nightly. Named by Coastal Living, Sailing World and Sail Magazine as one of world's top sailing/boating restaurants.
