Capital Gazette reviews the Boatyard Bar & Grill - 

Dining Out:  Just another local at the Boatyard Bar & Grill

The Boatyard Bar and Grill is another one of those places that everyone seems to know about. From the outside it looks like the classic dockside bar that has been there since before the town was built around it. Signs depict sailing locations around the world, and the outside deck is full of happy customers.

Boatyard Bar & Grill featured in What's Up Dining: The Taste

Boatyard-Whats-Up-Dining-the-Taste-cover

Recently What's Up Magazine's Rita Calvert came by the Boatyard for a visit and in the process, wrangled the recipe for Chef George's version of the classic Antoine's Stuffed Oysters Rockefeller.

Dining The Taste

If you sit down and have a friendly chat with Dick Franyo, owner of the Boatyard, you will learn a lot.  If you sit down with executive chef, George Bentz (ed. correct spelling Betz) you will laugh a lot.  Luckily, I got to experience learning and laughter during two different conversations with first, Dick and then chef George.

Boatyard Bar & Grill Straws are Compostable

Boatyard-Compostable-Straw_20180719-200332_1

In keeping with the Boatyard's commitment to a healthier environment, our straws are 100% plant based and completely compostable......since 2014!

Veteran Compost began composting our food waste in 2013 (now that is an incredible process!).   Not long after, Justen let us know that the beautiful Boatyard red straws were getting into the scraps and messing with the machinery.  Turning tail on our environmental pledge was not an option so we sourced a completely compostable green one.  Companies are increasingly leaning toward more eco-friendly products and fortunately the price has come way down, allowing smaller venues to participate too.  It's kind of cool that every step in the right direction creates a ripple of positive change!

Not wanting a straw with your beverage?  Please let our servers know!  We are happy to comply.

What else do we do?

Voted Best Raw Bar by What's Up Best of Annapolis 2018, we sell a whole lot oysters here at the Boatyard.

The Boatyard is one of the 10 Most Famous Sailor's Bars in the World!

Boatyard-famous-Sailors-ba_20171201-224327_1

SailUniverse has named the Boatyard as one of the 10 Most Famous Sailors Bars in the World.

When owner Dick Franyo envisioned the Boatyard Bar & Grill, he saw it as a place where the casual sailor or Kiwi pro, avid boater or yacht owner, boat mechanic, fisherfolk and general lovers of the Chesapeake lifestyle would sit at the bar casually chatting up the last regatta or sharing briny tales of the big one that got away.

Boatyard bar & grill named one of the 10 most Famous Sailors Bars in the World by SailUniverse.
