What to Eat in Annapolis

Owing to its idyllic perch on the harbor, you might guess that dining in Annapolis would be seafood-heavy. And you'd be right. Steamed crabs, in particular, are one of the city's specialties, and you can try them at any number of restaurants. Mike's Crab House and Cantler's are among some of the old favorites. For ice cream, the Annapolis Ice Cream Company is an unparalleled spot. If you're looking for a wine bar, you might try the well-reviewed Vin 909 Winecafe. Chick & Ruth's Delly is legendary, namely for their "colossal challenges," which involve downing a 6-pound milkshake or munching your way through a 3-pound sandwich.
