OVERALL THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD, ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIKE SEAFOOD. WISH THEY HAD A WIDER SELECTION OF RED MEAT/PORK. ALSO, WOULD LIKE SOME BEER ON DRAFT AND A LARGER SELECTION. APPETIZERS AND THE SERVICE WERE VERY GOOD.

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal while viewing some of the Lighted Boat Parade. If you like steamed mussels, check them out here. They prepare them in a white sauce which I could have had as a soup. It was soooooo good! The location is great, food was wonderful, staff was friendly. Definitely check out this place when in Annapolis.

This is the second time I’ve been to O’Learys, very nice restaurant, most of our selections were good to very good. I chose a seafood pasta with scallops and shrimp which was OK to mediocre given the price of $34.. Everyone else enjoyed their meals. And Dimitri the server was very cordial and accommodating,, with excellent knowledge of what the kitchen could do.

Another great meal at O’Leary’s. We enjoyed delicious grilled oysters and the evening special-
Scottish Salmon and scallops...everything was delicious. Cocktails were inventive and very good. They have the best seafood in town. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the food preparation and description.

O’Learys never disappoints. Busy night, we had a reservation and it was a bit hectic but we felt they had a sense of urgency about getting us seated despite the slight delay from Navy football folks. Great food as always. Best seafood in Eastport. Server was on the ball and knowledgeable.

The food at O Leary’s was very good. The service was very poor-we were seated and brought drinks on a timely basis and then the service stopped. Three tables were seated, drinks were delivered and an appetizer was brought to thei table and our table was just ignored. The waitress never came over to our table and just walked around us. I finally went to the bar and explained the situation and the waitress finally came to take our order. Not sure how long we would have sat there if I had not said something. The waitress was obviously out of sorts which made for an uncomfortable visit

Wonderful restaurant. The bartender and server were so friendly and professional. Food was superb. The restaurant manager/owner was nice enough to give us a window seat even though we arrived 45 minutes early. Will definitely go back.

Good food, decent service, more intimate than the other options in the area like Chart House, Ruth Chris and Carols Creek. Food is somewhere in between good and very good, depending on who you ask.

The food was outstanding. The calimari was succulent. The tuna and salmon were perfectly done and originally prepared. It's not inexpensive but worth the cost.

Overall this is a great place. We continue to go and have gone for numerous years. I was disappointed in the oysters that my son and I were served (two experienced oyster schuckers and fans). Annapolis should not be getting Oysters wrong. Low on variety, not properly schucked (muscle not cut, pieces of top shell not cut from oyster meat), and some dry as if they had been schucked earlier in the day. Oysters need to be schucked to order and done properly.

This was a lovely gem right off the water. I loved the service, as the waiter was attentive enough, not too much. What can I say about the food. It was delish!!!! The tuna superb! The shrimp and grits delightful. I would live to see more gluten free options and a sweet red on the wine list. Overall, I would most assuredly recommend this restaurant.

We came here for a special birthday dinner with our family of four while we happened to be in town for another activity. Our server did an excellent job of suggesting food for our Gluten Free family members, and he provided interesting nuggets about where the wine or food came from. He seemed to take great pride in providing excellent service. Everyone enjoyed their meal and while I wouldn't recommend the place for rambunctious kids, our older children felt welcome and respected.

Been going here for many years and honestly it’s tired. Wait staff wasn’t particularly friendly or helpful. Met long time friends there and they concurred. Really disappointing for such a niche location on the Annapolis waterfront.

Despite the big build-up by our server, we found that the food was unexceptional. We could have had a similar meal at any number of chain restaurants. Everything was overly spiced in our opinion, which is a shame when you order a delicate fish. It also seems that the menu is going overboard with attempts to be different by adding odd ingredients to staple dishes. It was an overall OK experience, but a far cry from the O'Leary's we remember from years back.

It's a very nice restaurant, kind of off main street, but with excellent food. Interior has interesting art work. Great for lots of occasions-many types of dress there-casual to more dressy. A good time.

Food (crab cakes, scallops) was delicious; pricey but not unreasonable. Few interruptions while eating is excellent service for me. Markup on wines (around 300% over wholesale) is a bit high.
