We dined on the last night of Restaurant Week. The service and cuisine were excellent. We greatly enjoyed the bacon-wrapped shrimp appetizer and the scallop entree. The scallops were done to perfection, not at all over-cooked as happens at so many places. I was celebrating my Birthday, and this was a real gift. On the way out, we made reservations for Mother's Day.

We went to the Severn Inn for dinner during restaurant week. We were seated at a great table overlooking the water. We had the grilled romaine salad and bacon-wrapped shrimp as appetizers, and a seared Amberjack and Scallops as our entrees. The food was amazing and my boyfriend loved his mojito. Our server, Hayley, was very gracious and attentive. Great romantic setting. Overall, a wonderful experience and one of the best dinners we've had in Annapolis. Definitely recommend!

We went for restaurant week week. The menu sounded great but the execution was lacking.
The service was just terrible. While our server was very pleasant, he provided little service. The restaurant had lots of staff and few patrons so he wasn’t busy. He said he was bringing bread. He didn’t. He failed to have the chef leave a big chunk of butter off my meal. He brought the wrong dessert. He didn’t check on us & he was very slow processing our check. We just sat there in wonderment - wondering where he was & what he would mess up next.
The manager never came around to ask how things were going.
Popular restaurants can’t live on reputation alone. Don’t they want to remain popular?

Good value for your money with Restaurant Week. One of the desserts was way too dry even with the topping (pound cake, really? Who overcooks that?). Waitress was slow and service was disjointed. But wouldn't stop me from going again. Had the scallops and they were delicious, ceviche for the appetizer was scrumptious and my bread pudding was adequate. Had a $30 bottle of red that with airing (they decanted it for us) was great value.

Waitress let us know how busy she was which is a thumbs down to start off. Warm bread and honey butter very nice and glasses and silver sparkling. Calamari appetizer was pretty good and decent size. Scallops entree was strange, having been paired with a lot of, too many mushrooms that did not good well with the seared scallops. Waitress reported portions were reduced for restaurant week. Not really a grear comment to endear the restaurant. Overall I think the restaurant is overpriced and overly self congratulatory. Not planning on returning anytime soon, though the view is, of course, very pretty.

We went because of the Restaurant Week lunch menu. Could not have been a better experience. Calamari and cerviche to start, pork belly bbq sandwich and fried chicken salad were very tasty. The fried chicken was served on the side, tender and juicy and the right amount of dressing on the salad.

All ordered from Restaurant Week dinner menu; expected better. Wedge salad and calamari were good, but bacon-wrapped shrimp were dry and puny. Steaks and fish were nicely cooked, but accompanying items seemed reheated and were over-sauced as if to mask that fact. Desserts were disappointing: small, dried out, kind of sad. Server less than pleasant (having a bad day?)

Unfortunately, I did not know that they had a VALENTINE's DAY menu when I made reservations. I enjoy the regular menu much better.

Ordered the crab cakes, and was extremely disappointed. Runny and soupy when you cut in to it. Hardly any lump crab meat. Thought I had crab dip in cake form. Had three bites and took the rest home, never finished it, never had the left overs.

My wife enjoyed her steak.

Even though it was nighttime, the view was still pretty spectacular. And for Valentine's Day they did put up an outside light display of a heart. The food was outstanding - well presented and delicious. Portions were just the right size. Also, at the end they presented you with a little gift of homemade cookies to take home with you. The restaurant was very busy but the staff was able to keep up and provide excellent service.

We had an early dinner. The entrees were average. The vegetables that accompanied them were not as listed on the menu. The carrot squash hash was inadequately cooked carrot gratings with Brussel sprout leaves and micro sprouts on top. My father was ill by midnight. Now we understand why everyone else stayed in the bar.

Overall, the food was quite good. Of course, that comes at a cost. The crab dip had such a crusty layer of cheese on top that we could not serve it with the spoon provided. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly but the seasoning and sauce overtook the naturally delicious flavor of the meat. I would still rate the food 4 stars but these are the things that kept me from rating it at a five-star level. I heard the new addition of fried chicken and macaroni and cheese was delicious!

We were looking for something to do on New Year's Eve and settled on the Severn Inn because I had enjoyed their Sunday Brunch in the past, and they advertised a special holiday meal with the reservation at 10pm. The food was phenomenal, the service was very good. Our waitress never shared her name but she is a young blonde lady (early 20's). She served us in a very professional manner without being too attentive. The Inn has a very comfortable family type atmosphere, not like a chain restaurant. The bill was a little pricey for two people and two drinks, a 20% gratuity at $219.00. I would do it again, but at that price it has to be a special occasion. Nice job Severn Inn!
