Fantastic food! Great service, wonderful food presentation and pleasant outside seating area. The restaurant was not very busy. Best meal I have had in Annapolis. We had Maryland crab soup - perfectly flavored with a bit of spice and chunks of lump crab. The main entree salmon was perched on top of a sweet potato half with spinach and cauliflower and red pepper garnish. Everything was cooked just right and the flavors were a perfect combination. I look forward to returning next time I am in Annapolis.
I Love Baroak I Hope they’re around forever it’s a great place and the staff is amazing The Servers Name Guy and Terrick are phenomenal the Cooks were Amazing Rob and Mike and also Troy who worked the buffet station..
Mother’s Day brunch had a lot of choices and the food was good. Our reservation was for 10:45, but they were not ready until 11.
They weren’t ready for brunch and we had to wait 20 minutes for them to finish setting up. Service was okay but then the credit card machine broke and we had to wait for a long time while they tried to fix it. It never was fixed and we had to leave our credit card number on a piece of paper. Not good.
Came on Mother’s Day and was not advertised that it was a a Mother’s Day Brunch at a cost of $45/person. Our reservation was set for 10:30 am but no one could get seated til 11:00 am. The food prepared was cold although it was under a heat lamp. No servers came to the table when we were seated and when they did they did not advise of the layout for the buffet. Staff was not organized and handled too many tables and could not focus on each table. Food was ok but not worth $45/person. After bill came the credit card machine was down and they could not process payments. Would not come back here on a holiday.
Went here for a dinner with friends. The burgers were delicious and spectacularly inexpensive given the happy hour deal. This place is definitely a great value
No mussels early on a Friday night
And very stale very salty greasy potato chips
I went to brunch with my boyfriend, and we loved the restaurant. The restaurant is so open and modern. It is comforting and decorated well. It is a very large open space and it creates a very nice ambience. The resturant is well-lit and fairly quiet, and it was a nice place for a brunch date. We both would highly recommend it. I got the three-egg omelette , which I enjoyed and my boyfriend had the breakfast burger which he said was delicious. The restaurant also has really good, fresh coffee. I would love to come here again.
The food was delicious, but the service was lacking. We had been there before for brunch and it was terrific. Not sure if the service was different because it was for brunch and not regular dining.
Good fixed menu for Easter. Give them a try for your next holiday experience
Good food - a little pricey for what we got, but great service and VERY dog friendly!
Great place. Excellent beer list.
Baroak's food is great and I would recommend it with the caveat that service is truly hit or miss.
We went to enjoy the happy hour, offered every day (including weekends) from 4-7. It's a great deal - 1/2 price burgers and 1/2 price craft beer drafts. (There's also a 1/2 price deal on wine, but I'm not sure what's covered.) The burgers were excellent, and the beer selection is strong.
We enjoyed the professional and efficient service.
I appreciated the fact that they held Brunch for our party even though our reservation for for 1:30! Chef Maria was fantastic and gave us the option to have pancakes or French toast, which was superb! The gentleman at the podium was very nice and engaging when we arrived! 1 person in our group wasn't feeling well and the staff was very attentive to that! We have decided to go back again for brunch just earlier!
The house made chips and dip are excellent. Both of our meals were very good. There was a large party in the dining room the day we were there and it took a big longer than normal for our food to be delivered, but our server unexpectedly brought us a glass of wine on the house. Very nice touch!
So much better than what we’ve come to expect from a hotel restaurant in terms of quality of food and service, and ambience. We’ll be back for the veggie burger!
I ordered the Caesar salad— it tasted great, but the presentation was weird with the big hunk of lettuce falling off both sides of the plate. And there was a little too heavy hand on the Parmesan. Salad dressing very nicely done .. not too heavy. The flatbread was a great size to share after the big salad, but the sauce was a tad sweet to my taste. Lovely service.
They tried...HARD. However, I haven’t waited tables in 30 years and think I could have done way better. There was a band, which was really good, which was a saving grace. However, they delivered our food to another table, brought food at different times, and the totally wrong dish was ordered. The hotel and beer list are lovely, though.
Everything was nice but our food took forever to receive. In fact a group setting next to us were seated well after we were. They finished & paid before we revived our meal. They waitress avoided us. We had to flag her down to see what the hold up was. Otherwise everything else was nice.
Food was good, but service could have been a lot better.
Christmas Day dinner.
Went in on Christmas day. Luck they were open! The menu is upscale bar food. I had a BBQ burger, which was pretty good, but a bit pricey at $16. I didn't care for the crab soup much but others at my table liked it.
They were “out” of gluten free buns which made the kids have to alter their dinner choices. A few of us got steak and cheese sandwiches and they were decent except the rolls were not fresh. They were also $18 and there was not much meat. So way overpriced. Poor value. Service was spotty
2nd time dining here. Really enjoy it. Small menu but no complaints. Mussells fromage bleu was fantastic. Drinks were a bit pricey but overall very good experience.
It was a last minute reservation for my mother, sister and I. The meal was a buffet. Appetizers consisted of crudités, baked Brie with cranberries and oysters Rockefeller. All were very good. Granted we were the last seating but several of the steam trays were empty and we had to notify the staff. They were responsive and apologetic. The food was very good but not exceptional. The poor guy at the carving struggled because of a dull carving knife but managed to give me adequate cuts of turkey and roast beef. Desert was a flourless chocolate cake which was very good as was the apple pie.
It was a birthday celebration during the middle of the day. Very quiet
Sat outside since a nice night so fairly quiet. There was live music in the main dining room so louder but nice atmosphere. Service was great and the burger was really good.
Great local option located in the Lowe’s hotel lobby. Tasty eats. We enjoyed a yummy burger, salmon entree, crabmeat dip, marguerita pizza along with tasty beer and an Italian blend red wine by the glass. Everything was yummy. Service very attentive. A hidden treasure. Cheers!
We went for brunch. We were sat and asked what we would like to order as we were sitting down. We had not even seen the menu yet. The menus we got were not brunch menus. We asked if they were doing brunch and were told by the server “yes of course”.
Well can we get the brunch menus?
We saw quite a few people having brunch foods that were not on the brunch menu. When we asked if we could get that we were told “yeah sure”. Why it wasn’t on the menu I have no idea.
The food was very good but the experience was just so odd. Not the best relaxing brunch we were hoping for.
We went to BAROAK for dinner on Mother's Day. We had to wait a little longer than we would have liked for our drinks, but, overall, it was a very nice experience. I would recommend BAROAK.
Extraordinarily slow service! The flatbread margarita pizza was soggy and had no flavor. The potato chips on the table with the dip were very salty and greasy. It might be a good place for happy hour daily from 4 to 7.
Great evening. Crab dip was phenomenal, and lobster roll was authentic New England😋
Dined on a recent Saturday afternoon prior to a local concert. We had made advanced reservations through Open Table for booth seating but the unfriendly host said upon our arrival that our request could not be accommodated without further explanation, even though we were dining at 4:30 and the place was barely populated. We ended up seating on barstools (alert- that's the only way you can get the happy hour prices). Baroak seems to have an identity crisis - it doesn't know whether it wants to be a restaurant or sports bar. It was pretty much the latter - noisy open kitchen, NBA games on the TV's and zero background music to drown out the noises and lend some atmosphere. The food is standard bar food style - burger was good but unspectacular, salad so so. Our server, Daniel, was friendly but his grasp of the menu was a bit lacking. Likely won't be racing back anytime soon.
Lamar the server was great! We should have just had one of their specialty burgers that looked great. We went for a crab cake and steak dinner. They just weren’t that good.
Really enjoyed dining at BarOak; ended up eating there twice actually. The staff is so nice and accommodating; had part of our party running late, and they were great about pushing out reservation a few minutes.
Big beer selection, custom cocktails - also enjoyed the food options. Would recommend this to anyone staying in Annapolis for a more upscale bar/restaurant.
Space in the restaurant was also great, didn't feel like we were on top of others while dining.
Our first visit was for Annapolis Restaurant week. Food was delicious, service was great. It was quiet on a Sunday night.
Very good restaurant for hotel. Consistent food quality and good choices overall. Dinner and Breakfast had very good options. The wait staff was very attentive at dinner, less so at breakfast.
Sunday night before MLK day and the place was dead.
