Hell Point Seafood in downtown Annapolis, MD is good.

I went to Hell Point for the first time this week and thought all of the food was quite good. I believe it is worth going to and will go back. The crab cake has a mustard flavor that is unique and it is well prepared. The watermelon salad was delicious and delivered by the sous chef who wore a beautiful blue uniform. I enjoyed the lobster roll, but it was too expensive at $20. I sat on the patio and enjoyed the view. I went the day after the Post review and the staff was very friendly, professional, and attentive. I did come across one staff member who spoke openly and rudely to the hostess who greeted us. I don't know who she was, but she took us to our tables and seated us, so maybe she was another hostess. On the other hand she was very polite to us - just a very immature young woman.

  1. Hell's Point is a GREAT new addition to the Annapolis restaurant scene. I tried it for the first time last night. Took advantage of the Happy Hour specials and tried 3 of the small plates options- the stuffed quahogs were different and very good, and the thai mussels are fabulous!

    Crabcake sandwich is excellent, and is served with a anise slaw- nice change from the typical mayo style.

    Desserts are top notch- think pastry chef level. Tried the apple tart tatin- rated a 10! and the Eastern Shore layer cake is fabulous too.

    This restaurant is an option for locals as well as out of town guests searching for high quality Chesapeake seafood.

    Only suggestions I have would be to serve bread (for the mussel sauce) and to lower the music in the bar area. I sincerely hope that Annapolitans patronize a "city" level restaurant- make the trip downtown, take some change for the ticketed meter stand, and enjoy!
