Visited for a mid-week dinner and some beers in July. My first impression was all the way positive -- good service, awesome Buffalo burger, impressive offerings on the 20 or so taps. There were 4-5 Iíd not had! I was all happy until the bill came, and I realized each beer was $7 or more! Are you kidding me? So for 4 beers and a burger, my tab was almost $60.
Stopped in for dinner. Had the sampler which you get to pick 4 5oz pours from the taps for $8 which is a pretty damn good deal. Had the Black and Blue burger which was $11 and was pretty good. Had about 15 taps which werevery solid. In seems like they rotate there taps often. Service was very good. Awesome beer garden with live music.
For the guy who stated all his beers were over $7 I wonder what he was drinking. I think all of the Mikkeller single hops were on tap then, which you would expect to be over $7 a draft as they retail for about $8 each in bottle shops. Anyway, this is a nice little bar that is all micro taps.

Nice atmosphere with a large patio. It is a very southern and on the water feel. Great food menu with lots of good food. Beer selection had about 8 beers on tap and maybe 20 select bottles. They did a good job and i would say the selection is top notch for the area but i wasnít blown away in comparison to other bar/restaurants. I will have to go back to comment on the rotation but defiantly worth a trip if you get there and can find parking which is most challenging. Go during off-peak hours. Beers are over 6 dollars which is accurate and reflected in value.

Nice looking place, very easy going feel to it but it is SMALL. They have outside seating but itís not undercover so if you get there on a rainy Friday afternoon (like I did) it fills up fast. @ 14 rotating Micro taps, JIllís (Lagunitas) Pils was a real winner. Food was quite good, lots of variety & price options. Live music scheduled on the weekends, although there was none w/we were there probably due to the rain-looks like they set up in the outside area. Be sure to get there during happy hour-ALL drafts 1/2 off & there are food specials. Iíll defiantly go back here w/Iím in this area; hopefully on a nice night w/we can sit outside & hear some good music! ***Note to owners*** You need to get that outside dining area under cover! ****Update**** Has become my favorite place in the Anne Arundel Co area when Iím on the "Western Shore" - when I can get in! Avoid Fri/Sat if possible, particularly in off season w/outside dining area isnít open.
I have been here a few times over the past year or so. Itís the best place in the area to find delicious beer on tap. The owner and staff are super friendly! Service is excellent and personal. The food is delicious with a great selection of local style seafood dishes. Itís a very family friendly place, but thereís a good mix of patrons. While they may not have a ton of taps, I never have had to worry if theyíll have anything that Iíll enjoy. Iím glad that Lures is here, and I wish them continued success!
Itís newíish inside, & the decor is very clean & fresh. I want to know who they keep in the room over the fire place. There are 2 comfy chairs in front of the fireplace, but it doesnít look like theyíve got any plans to use it for heat anytime soon. Large, open room for all seating & the smallíish bar. Couple of flat panel TVs over the bar. Theyíve got a large patio, which looks like itíd be great for warmer weather. Even so, theyíve got plenty of propane heaters out there.
Food was great. Rockfish bites batter was just about perfect. The "Lureís Special" was a good sammich, in my book. Wife had the crab salad sandwich, which was full of lump backfin. Servers were prompt & polite, even though there were only a couple of them working.
Selection when we went included Rasputin, Green Flash Hop Head Red, Ruination, Hairy Eyeball, & several others. As far as quality tap selection in the Annapolis area goes, this place is probably it. Best part is that happy hour is half price on ALL drafts.
Treadyrocís description is well done. I would want to emphasize how congenial the owner and bartenders are. The draft selection is not huge (12?), but well chosen. A hop lover will be happy to note that they always have a few different handles devoted to his favorite flavor. The atmosphere and food are fantastic. Most importantly, the keg lines are very clean. This is exactly what Annapolis needed.
This is the first place in the area where you could get a great selection of about 15 beers on tap. I used to go to Ramshead Roadhouse due to their vast selection of bottled beer but went to Lures to check it out and found better food and much better draft selection. There is a beer club which cost $30 to join and you get a free beer a month, a hat, and a free birthday meal (up to $20). Since I go there at least once a month this is a good deal. My favorites are the buffalo burger and the blackened tuna sandwich. Parking can be a challenge at times and they have live music on the weekends.
