The “Maritime Republic of Eastport” as it’s fondly known (you’ll see the flags and probably want one too, trust me) is just a short boat ride or walk across the bridge from Downtown Annapolis. Here you’ll find a neighborhood with a charming, nautical personality of its own. With great views of the Naval Academy and charming historic houses and views of the water all around, Eastport boasts some of the best dining in the city. Below, we give you just a few of my favourite restaurants in Eastport for every occasion!
If You’re Looking For …
Fun & Casual Dining: Boatyard Bar & Grill
With its boat house design & nautical decor, and lively atmosphere, Boatyard is where you can go when you get off your boat in your board shorts and flip flops and have a fun time with friends and family. Throughout the year, Boatyard also hosts many events, from live music nights, to Bands on the Sand to a fishing tournament. Currently, there are no events happening but they do have an outdoor tent and heaters to accommodate guests for the winter. A must stop for all types of seafood, from oysters, scallops to crab cakes to fish tacos, their menu is as extensive as it is delicious. A true local favorite.
