Live in Annapolis and have been going to Joss Cafe since it opened and have never had a bad or mediocre meal. Their sushi is outstanding, the atmosphere is very comfortable. I could eat there every day!

The sushi selection is vast. The place is clean and inviting. Japanese fusion and sushi are my favorite and therefore Joss is my favorite downtown dinner location.
