My friend and I met at Jerry's for lunch. We both ordered the crab bomb to eat during lunch, but we also put in orders for the Mariner's Platter to take home. In addition to the entrees, we also ordered a calamari appetizer. The appetizer was delicious. The calamari were cooked perfectly and were very meaty. The crab bomb was... More

You have to go eat here if you are near or are a connoisseur of crab cakes. Their no filler cakes are the real thing. It's the closest I have ever found to like we make at home! Their crab bomb is really fantastic and so worth it. No filler! Everything we had was good. The homemade salad dressings were... More

Jerry's is famous for the CRAB BOMB. A crab delight in an individual ceramic boat. Jumbo lump crab meat well seasoned and baked/broiled with NO filler. You have to try it to understand it. The crab dip is an unbelievable appetizer, it's served with small slices of warm barely toasted french bread. The cream of crab soup is delicious as... More

Jerry's Seafood is one of the best seafood restaurants. My favorite food to order is the seafood platter. All of Jerry's food is pricey but this platter is well worth the money. There is enough food on it for two people to eat and feel full. If you are eating alone, there is enough food for a meal on another... More

Jerry's Crab bomb is "da bomb". They make two versions of it and on my second visit to Maryland I made sure I took time to visit Jerry's again to try the the crab bomb again. The firecraker version is the best, but the other stands its ground too. It is pricey as most would say, but you leave there... More

Jerry's has an item called the "the Crab Bomb". It is very good and plentiful. The cream of crab soup is really good as well. Be willing to pay at least $45 for your meal but it is worth it.

Go there for the crab bomb. It's not cheap but worth going at least once. Atmosphere is pretty basic. They have a bar with flat screens and an open seating layout. Expect a wait in the evenings. Call ahead since I don't think they take reservations. Best time is Lunch during the week, to skip the crowds.

Jerry's has very good seafood but is slightly pricey. The "Crab Bomb" is always delicious and since it is quite large it can be shared to keep costs in check. We enjoy celebrating special events at Jerry's but it would not be our go to family restaurant. The children likely would not appreciate the seafood and that is such a... More

Jerry's has the BEST cream of crab soup anywhere (and as a Marylander I eat it everywhere). It has a lovely texture, spice, and lots and lots of crab meat. We just HAVE to take additional orders of the soup to take home. The Crab Bomb puts any crab cake I've ever had to shame (see the Marylander comment above).... More
