Quick great lunch

Stopped in for a quick lunch with my hubby. We sat at the bar ordered two beers and a dozen oysters to start. Oysters were awesome. We followed up with a crab cake sandwich and a shrimp basket. Both were very good but I should have just ordered the crab cake platter since I ate only a 1/4 of the... read more

Went with a group of 6 during Friday evening rush. All seats taken but we were seated within 30 minutes even though we had no reservations. Sports on TVs, sound from juke box still able to hear conversation from all in my group. Real Maryland crab cakes were worth the trip! All our meals were top notch: Hot Beef, Oysters,... More

We've been to Jennings a number of times over the years. It has standard american fare - with sides like stewed tomatoes, apple sauce etc. The burger was okay. Their food is not great but the service was good and it is overall inexpensive. It was a good place to take the kids.

Nice Bar atmosphere and dining area. Food is always GREAT. They have a wide variety of dinner specials every night. They are voted number 1 for their BEST burgers which are huge. Old Bay wings and French Onion Soup are Superb. We frequent this eatery often.

Jennings is often crowded but that is because the food is so good. Terrific crabcakes, amazing stewed tomatoes, great shrimp salad. Very popular with locals. Very friendly staff, especially Peggy who has been there forever- she is great :)

Always good food. An old well established local favorite for casual dining. A well rounded menu with reasonable prices. Some of the help staff have been there for decades and know lots of customers by name. Has a full bar.

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...
