10 Top Restaurants in Annapolis


By Christine Fillat with Annapolis Home Staff


There are a lot of fine places to dine in Annapolis. The following are ten of our favorites. Some of them are fine dining; others are rather casual. The restaurants are not ranked. All are places we return to time and again.


Vin 909

This beloved Eastport wine bar, housed in a charming neighborhood bungalow, has consistently provided diners with a delicious, innovative seasonal menu. Try the Rockstar pizza made with truffle and fig. Vin 909 is popular and does not take reservations. This makes bringing guests difficult unless you don’t mind waiting outside.

Lewnes Steak House

Nostalgia reigns at this classic steak house. Intimate and gracious, the steaks are cooked on a super-hot grill. Celebrating milestones here is a long-standing Annapolis tradition.

With a brick pizza oven and classic Italian fare, Carpaccio’s is a place we like to go for the ambiance and the service.

A newcomer to the Annapolis dining scene, Choptank has the distinction of the finest elevated views of Ego Alley. The outdoor seating on the second floor offers a command location to gaze upon all the comings and goings of the boats below. Excellent raw bar and crab cake.

Severn Inn

The romance of the Severn Inn is found in its site right on the Severn River and its view of the Annapolis skyline. The food is really good, too! Great salads and cream of crab soup.

Grapes Wine Bar at Wine Cellars

How lovely to have a wine bar with tasty food attached to a vast and well-stocked wine store. Visit Mondays for the roast chicken.
