As mentioned in Part 1, we recommend celebrating Valentine’s Day at a beautiful Inn while touring historic Annapolis. You and your loved one will have several opportunities to enjoy romantic meals over a romantic weekend. There is no better region in the USA for excellent seafood than the Mid-Atlantic, especially the Chesapeake Bay. Annapolis has also attracted immigrants from all over the world, and they have brought the best cuisine from their old countries.
According to TripAdvisor, below are Numbers 5 to 1 of the Top 10 Romantic Restaurants of Annapolis. All have averaged ratings of more than 4 out of 5 stars and received their Certificate of Excellence, and so dining in each will be a culinary delight.

“The Jalapeños restaurant opened in May of 1999. The owners Gonzalo and Alberto work very hard at keeping the standards and tradition of Mexican and Spanish cuisine alive.” Many diners have raved about Happy Hour and the drinks.
