I'm looking for a restaurant that serves authentic seafood in Annapolis. Fresh fish of all kinds are a staple of my diet. Any recommendations??

    O'Leary's and a place NEVER discussed on here that is extremely good: http://www.kenscreativekitchen.com/ex... I think the Narrows still has slightly better crab cakes and cream of crab soup but overall the Back Porch Cafe is excellent. It is also intriguing: it is only open from May to October and literally, every single seat is outdoors. Yes, outdoors. It is also very picturesque sitting directly on a harbor.

    Sometime, I'll post at length on here about it. If you go their strongest dishes may be their crab quesadilla and their tower of crab salad. Very good coconut and Smith Island cake, too.

      Interesting that there was not a single response to my comments about the Back Porch Cafe. Hasn't anyone on this board been there? Both unique and excellent; certainly worth its own lengthy thread.

        I didn't see your first post, but its one of my favorite places in Annapolis, if not my favorite place. Everything they make there is stellar, not just the seafood. I'm in love with their buttery grilled apple, cheddar and bacon sandwich. I try to avoid over promoting it, however, due to the limited seating.

        Oh yeah! Super +1 on Ken's. Reminds me that we need to go before the season's over.

          I just got a gift certificate for my birthday for Ken's -- I'd never heard of it before and can't wait to check it out!
