We stopped in for a couple of beverages and some wings. The wings were good (not very meaty)...our server was a nice guy...the beer was good. Very personable bartender...just okay atmosphere...like dozens of other Irish pubs we've been to...nothing memorable.

Best pub atmosphere in Annapolis! Killer corned beef and cabbage, Reuben and cream of crab!! Right off of Main Street. Being a local, it's always a stop when going Downtown.
