This is a terrific place to grab a bite, or a beer, whenever you're in Annapolis. It's close to the State House, so it keeps you right in the State Circle area, perfect for when you might be on a tour of the State House and other buildings.

We wandered into the Galway Bay in Annapolis on Hallowe'en, looking for good food and good value. We found both, plus convivial hosts and lively Irish music. The menu offers robust, home cooked fare - Irish boxty, fish and chips, shepherd's pie, hot pot and a range of lighter options. The apple pie was to die for and my Californian... More

We had a late lunch here on our first day in Annapolis. We split a hot beef sandwich and Caesar salad. Both were very tasty. The server was prompt and attentive. The price was very reasonable.

We arrived around 8pm on a Friday evening, though busy we were sat immediately. We split a bottle of the Dante Pinot Noir which went well with our food and had great flavor. Our service was spot on and efficient. The food came out quickly and we all loved what we got.
