Meet the Makers

Meet the Makers

Stan and Joe’s Saloon opened its doors in January of 2007. The dream of two long-time local Annapolis bartenders became reality when they purchased an aging pub. Swearing to clean the joint up and add some character, the two bar mutts did just that by adding a new menu, a fresh coat of paint, a few TVs, and a hand-picked staff of local bar stars and servers dedicated to having fun.

Stan Fletcher (the senior of the two, so his name goes first!) has been slinging drinks in Annapolis for 35 years at such places as Armadillos, Fran O’Briens, The Ebb Tide, and more. A golfaholic, Stan balances his saloon keeping with his other love, music. His band, A Classic Case, can be seen all around the area and frequently at Stan and Joe’s Saloon. Look for his signature mustache and his shaggy hair (which annoys his balding partner, Joe!!) and stories of great golf shots.

Did you know Stan and Joe are on the radio too? Listen to come of their on-radio banter and fun times here.

Joe McGovern (aka Little Joe), a 25-year bartender, cut his teeth in Georgetown in Washington, DC before getting tired of being shot at then moving to Annapolis. Joe worked at The Paul Mall, Champions, Rumors, and LuLu’s in DC. Once he moved to Annapolis in the early 90s, he bartended at The Eastport Clipper, McGarvey’s, and The Rockfish. He also loves music but keeps it confined to the shower or karaoke. His beautiful wife, Tracy (Banquet Manager/Account Manager/and Sunday Football Bartender Goddess!), also tended bar at LuLu’s in the nation’s capitol, and she worked at The Boatyard here in Annapolis for years. Look for Tracy telling Joe to stop telling Rugby stories of his college days! As Joe says, “The older I get, the better I was!!!”

As we tell our staff repeatedly, good service is not rocket science. We pride ourselves on great food, great service, and a lively atmosphere that makes everyone feel welcome. Our kitchen features an open-flame grill for our savory steaks and burgers. Fresh seafood is delivered daily and keeps people coming back. Live, local, nightly music has the place jumpin’ after 10pm!

Both Stan and Joe personally invite you to stop by and check out either of our “Old School” saloons!
