Annapolis’ West Street Eateries

Dining On The “New” West Street

Whether you’re looking for a killer margarita, or some down-home sushi or maybe just a big juicy burger, chances are you’ll find it, and then some, on the “new” West Street, one of the thoroughfares that radiates off Church Circle at the top of Main Street in Annapolis–an easy walk from the city dock. The street itself has just undergone a major revitalization, with a new brick roadway running between its mix of Colonial and more modern facades. And the restaurants here are well worth the walk, with an international array of menus. West Street doesn’t get as crowded as Main Street, and while there are plenty of patrons for each establishment, you seldom have to wait for a table. I dine here often and have sampled each of the menus at least once.

West Street is music central if you’re in the mood for listening as you dine. At the Ram’s Head you’ll find headliners like Taj Mahal and Arlo Guthrie, as well as up-and-comers on the national scene. You’ll also find a wonderful selection of Fordham microbrew–we confidently recommend any of the seasonal selections. You can make reservations for dinner and a show, but the restaurant is always open for dining if you’re not in the mood for music. The menu offers fairly standard fare, presented well–from fish and chips to surf and turf. A cozy tavern in the Ram’s Head basement serves up hearty sandwiches and great salads (also terrific nachos for two). You’ll always hear jazz during the Sunday brunch.
