Live Music with Timmie Metz Band featuring Tambo
Harry Legum and the Ewald Trio promises to bring a fantastic set.....lots of early rock and a smattering of deep cut Beatles.
Harry, an Annapolitan hometown favorite, jams with talented artist, Bryan Ewald, the star musician for famed PRS guitars. Holding down the bass and drums, Aidan and Julian Ewald add their mojo to create a musical showcase not to be missed! Join us at the Boatyard for an intimate and fun concert experience of rich talent and familiar tunes.
An easy day trip, Annapolis offers colorful possiblities for sightseeing, great food and water views. Internationally acclaimed as Best Sailors Bar, the Boatyard has been described as "....a nautical cheers" and falls under Washingtonian's Where to Catch a Buzz in this article. We also have the famous "All Killer, No Filler crab cakes and the freshest local seafood specials around. Come see us this summer!
Great going Chef George! (Of course, he was culinary trained and is a Batlimore native so he came up with his recipe there). We sold over 79,000 crab cakes last year, most right here in the restaurant but a good number also shipped nationwide, along with our crab soups and crab dip. Her's what the Baltimore Sun said about us "The six ounce orbs (don't call them patties) of jumbo lump crab bring patrons streaming, by land and sea, to Boatyard Bar & Grill...."

The Honorable John P. Barry presides over a delightful evening of lively Irish music and song, with highlights to include the infamous end-of-night conga line. Featuring the local Oyster Boys with Kevin Brooks, joined by talented guests Seamus Kennedy and Danny Costello and others.
It's Feb. and I haven’t written since Nov 1. Why? because it’s winter in Annapolis and after the regattas, fishing tournaments, Navy football games, boat shows, outdoor beach parties and the holidays, things slow down a lot. View from my house....does it look slow or what? Wait, not totally dead!!

Back by popular demand and sponsored by Chesapeake Bay Magazine and CCA Maryland, Angler Nights return to the Boatyard Bar & Grill! Swapping tales of fish fought, dynamic escapes and monumental catches, anglers and friends parlay up on the last Tuesday in January, February and March for good grog and grub with an entertaining movie. Each passing year those fish stories take on Moby Dick proportions and keep the staff smiling for weeks!

Before Fin and the Sailer girls head off to school we got them to WRNR to do a radio ad. They have done so about 8 or 9 years now. Fin, Morgan and Lilly Sailer at the station. Of course Eastport Pirate Tom Weaver is the voice of the Boatyard and Tom with WRNR producer/DJ Rob do an amazing job.
The third of our big outdoor charity events was mid-August - the Boatyard CRAB Cup to benefit CRAB - Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating for those of all ages with disabilities including wounded warriors. This regatta was followed up later that week with the CRAB Annapolis Police Dept Youth Sailing Camp for at risk kids. What a great group!! G and me with Title Sponsor Annapolis Volvo’s Michelle Eichorn at the afterparty featuring Misspent Youth - amazing band. Thank you, Michelle!!! And of course, Mt. Gay Rum and Red Stripe Beer among others. Me posing with our Boatyard team, GM Kevin and servers Gabby and Michael. Our Captain and crew on Juice, very respectable showing less than a minute behind the other Alerion that races in every regatta. Good going Dave. Enjoy the pictures, more on our site Boatyard Bar & Grill gallery.
Hello from the Boatyard!! It’s July and we are in the thick of summer and loving it. In the “land of pleasant living” as they used to say on the Natty Boh jingle-in the 70s. Where have all the years (flowers) gone? Yikes! The Boatyard is cranking and it’s great to be full every day. We appreciate your patronage and are working hard to continue to deserve it. 77,000 crab cakes sold last year. It’s a high bar but you’re helping us beat it. And you’re shipping those crab cakes online nationwide to your Uncle Louie in Omaha and as corporate gifts to your important clients in Sacramento. Thanks!
Our second big event, Bands In the Sand at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s beautiful Merrill Center, in mid-June was an amazing success. Best ever. Sold out in a week or so. Great bands, food, drinks, weather, sponsors, guests, boats, etc. Thank you! We raised record setting funds for CBF to do their great work to Save the Bay, and you know by now that the Bay is getting so much better!! Thank you CBF- its staff, supporters, and those with the political will to help us leave a better Bay for our kids.
