A colleague and I had heard about Jennings from friends, so we decided to try it. The staff is friendly. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. The atmosphere allows customers to enjoy conversation at the table or watch sports. We tried a few of the dishes recommended by other reviewers - the rockfish bites were good/the dipping sauce was...

I live in Oslo-Norway and I have relatives in Catonville that I visit twice a year. Despite my loved ones my main concern there are the evenings in Jennings Cafe. The magic atmosfere I enjoy. The outstanding food and the kindness of the waitress are the most. You can't imagine guys how happy I am at your place. I am... More

Stopped in to grab dinner before hitting the road and getting into traffic. Weren't sure what to expect but gave it a try. We were greeted right away ( arrived 5:15p) and got drinks in just a few minutes of arriving. Potato skins were really good, we got 4 for 3 of us but could have polished off 6. We... More

This towny little bar and restaurant has been here forever in Catonsville. I frequently visited it throughout my high school and college careers back before the "revitalization" of the main street in Catonsville brought in a bunch of new restaurants. It's very low key (grab a seat wherever you want as you walk in), and the price is right for... More

This long-standing Catonsville restaurant is the place we go when I am too tired to cook and we just want some yummy food. The wait staff is friendly, experienced and efficient and they go out of their way to make sure you have what you need. My very picky child loves their grilled cheese sandwiches. Husband always gets the Rockfish... More

Jennings is an old standard in Catonsville along Frederick Avenue. There are many new and trendier restaurants that have popped up on this historic pike. Jennings has never disappointed me over the years, whether you're there solo or with a crowd. Service is always great and food is delivered quickly. Soft crabs, club sandwiches are always extraordinary. The only drawback... More
