Annapolis Restaurants & Nightlife

There's no question... dining and nightlife are the focal point of any destination. Annapolis is exceptional on both fronts, thanks to an incredibly picturesque waterfront backdrop; plentiful access to the bounty of the bay-think Maryland crabs and other seafood; and an energetic, happy-to-be here pulse that reverberates through the locals and naturally extends to those who travel here.

Speaking of travelers, Annapolis and the Chesapeake caters to all types. Whether you're a family taking in the historical and nautical sights of Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay, a couple strolling our quaint brick walkways, or here to visit your favorite midshipman, you'll find an abundance of welcoming, sumptuous places to dine and-if you've got the energy to spare-to hit the town well into the evening hours for live music and entertainment.
