12. Jimmy Cantler's Riverside Inn

Plan to dine early, or you’ll wait just to get onto the parking lot at waterfront Cantler’s, an Annapolis institution. The interior resembles a camp mess hall, with long family-style tables that you’ll likely end up sharing. Owner Jimmy Cantler, a fourth-generation waterman, insists on serving only Maryland blue crabs, delivered daily by boat, and locals love his unique seafood seasoning.
