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

They have wonderful Soft Crab Sandwiches through the summer months, fried oysters, delicious Crab Cakes and fabulous Shrimp Salad...among many other foods ...atmosphere is okay and... 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

This is really the perfect place on a blustery evening when you just want warm food and cold drinks. Some say the interior is dated. I call it charming. The wait staff seemed to know everyone in the restaurant but us and hopefully they will know us too before long. Lots of people sitting at the bar, but plenty of... More

I love this place! I've been eating here for over twenty years. The food is great and the service is friendly. Jennings is a very comfortable place where everyone seems to know everyone. For a relaxed pub experience, I recommend it. It's not a "young" place. There certainly are a few grey hairs about. But it keeps attracting more and... More
