“Nice Irish Pub with good food.”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We had the Tomato Whiskey soup and it was very good. We then both had the Irish Ruebens. They were very good, with big chunks of Corned Beef, not slices. Good service and friendly atmosphere.

We have eaten here several times and each time we have had a great meal. We held our rehearsal dinner here in September and were very impressed by the great service and wonderful meal. We have attended a rehearsal dinner in the past that took forever to get the food and it did not come out consistently. So we were aware/concerned that this could happen when having over 40 people at ours. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE HERE. The service was continuous and pretty quick considering we had 40+ people. Everyone was served at about the same time. The food was amazing and no one complained. We met out of town guests over in the bar area after the rehearsal dinner. It was a great place to hang out and have some drinks.

“Very good food and service”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

Went on a Tuesday night with my wife. Visiting the area. The place was pretty empty when we arrived at 6:30 but when we left at 8pm it was about 3/4 full. Had a wonderful app, spinach & crab dip in a bread bowl- fantastic! My wife tried the crab cakes and she said they were as good as advertised. I had the Molley's mussels and Irish chips and they were both excellent. Thought the prices were reasonable. I had a Guiness and my wife an iced tea. No dessert. Bill with a 20% tip came to about $65. Atmosphere was very nice. Definitely will be back and we recommend highly.

“About as Irish that you can get in the States”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

My Tour company often drops off our guests at the end of a Tour at Galway Bay and have done so for the last 3 years. We've never gotten a bad comment about their experience. The restaurant is owned and operated by actual Irish folks who have come to our shores to bring their concept. They offer a cabbage roll and a Tomato and Wiskey soup that is an extraordinary way to start your meal. In fact the Food network did a spot there on its show Diners, Dives and Drive Ins and they gave it a thumbs up review, as well. Often Irish oriented bars will have a good selection of draft/bottle beers, but the food is a secondary effort. That is NOT the case at Galway Bay, meaning the food is right up there as the primary reason to frequent this spot when visiting the Historic District of Annapolis.

“never even got to eat.”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

this was boat show weekend, so you would think there would be staff to cover. Not the case and the Manager, a female swinging her long hair around our table lamented on how her staff was all sick and she whined to us to have patience as she was doing her best, which included having us wait over 15 minutes to get a glass of water and a menu. The disaffected youth greeting everyone at the door clearly needed some EMO time to himself. We left.
