Staying in Annapolis is a treat in itself. Couple that with a meal or meals at Galway Bay and it’s perfection. Not saying that there aren’t a lot of fine places to eat in town, there are. Enough to satisfy anyone’s appetite. But, if you’re...More

Nice neighborhood place for good grub and craft beers. Irish music makes it more fun on Wednesday nights. Full menu with fine dining on one side and bar on the other.

We loved this pub. Food and service were terrific. They had Irish dancing (not on St. Patty's Day). No TVs add to great, authentic pub atmosphere. A must visit in Annapolis, just steps away from the State Capitol rotunda building!
