Very good food at a reasonable price. Lots of cool pictures on the wall including Adam Richman's visit. Crab Cake is awesome, one of the best I have had if not the best. Place is also quite historic, been there since the 60's at least.

Have been to Chick and Ruth's many times over the past 20 years. If you are looking for fine dining with white table cloths look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a great, quick breakfast or lunch in one of the most quirky, popular places in Annapolis, this is the place. All the local politicians eat here when the... More

My Husband and I visited for a late lunch on a Saturday. Even though we were not at prime meal time the place was packed as usual. With hardly enough room to turn around the servers scurried about quickly and efficiently as they served the mile high stacked sandwiches - Hot Pastrami and Corned Beef a house favorite! We enjoyed... More

We ordered the 8oz jumbo lump crab cake - all crab meat no fillers - and fries. Very satisfying meal and friendly staff. We saved room for a slice of one their famous pies went with the apple. It was so tasty that we ended up ordering a whole one to take home.

Been here a long time but still a great value! My wife had the crab cake and said if was delicious. I had a beef brisket sandwich which was very good and the prices are very reasonable. Plus the staff is very friendly.

We stopped for lunch while visiting Annapolis. Chick and Ruth was highly recommended by the visitor center. We had to wait about ten minutes for a table. The place is small and not fancy, but the food is amazing! The prices are ridiculously cheap, I don't know how they do it! We all had crab, wraps, plater and soup. All... More

Basic diner food. I don't get the popularity of this place, other than it has a big menu and is very cheap for downtown Annapolis. Also, lots of MD political stuff, big deal. OK for breakfast but for cheap eats at lunch, you would be better off at nearby Masons Lobster Roll, Sofis Crepes, or Big Cheese Sandwich takeout and... More

Chick & Ruth's never fails to amaze us. Where else can you go and pledge allegiance to the flag?.. For such a small restaurant they bang out the food to the masses who wait patiently for their epicurean delight. The menu covers breakfast, lunch and dinner and has something for everyone. The staff is always friendly and very attentive. Chick... More

Faced with a daunting array of eateries in this lovely city, we opted for something simple and different. This was the place. Okay, it's typical cramped diner style and lively, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Had no wait because of the mid-afternoon time - seated immediately. Menu variety is astonishing. Crab cake sandwich was the best my husband has ever... More

After visiting Chick and Ruth's for the 4th time, I noticed the total charged to my card was a little over $9 more than it should have been. I immediately called them and the head manager took all my info and said he would call me back as soon as his wife came in as she is the one who... More
